Have been staying in Ankeny for the past 2 months due to work, my coworkers and I do extended stays all the time and room together to try to keep our personal costs down. This place though, NEVER AGAIN!! Seemed like it was more of a place for people who are down and out to get a place to live....

Clean, efficient, good location. It is bare bones but for $89 who cares. I would stay here again. There is no lobby, no fancy decor, bed in a bag double beds, no hair dryer or ironing board. Really could only accommodate two adults or a family of four with two younger kids due to the bed size. But it is...

So far, of all of the Extended Stay facilities I've used...this Value Place has been a delight. The staff is courteous, attentive, and have been responsive to any need I've presented to them. From day one in February 2016, 'til today I've had few if any disappointments in the service they've provided me. That's why I'm still a resident, and...

Stayed at my favorite hotel once again. This was only a one night stay. The rate was very reasonable and as always the staff was very helpful. My room was very clean as it is every time I stay here. Being right at I-35 makes travel a snap.

My husband and I had a reservation; however, when we arrived, we had to wait 10 minutes for someone to staff the front desk in order to check in. Of course, they increased their rates because the state fair was going on. $150 was outrageous for the room and lack of services we received. Do not expect any comforts that...

This is an extended-stay place. The rooms have stoves, sinks and a decent size refrigerator. But, that's all you get. No cooking utensils, coffee maker, plates, and what I consider a "normal" compliment of stuff. I could not believe they don't even provide lamps on the bedside tables, nor will you find them on the wall above. But for most...

The prices at Value Place really are a huge relief if you are planning on an extended stay of a week or more. But to be honest. Even without the discount of staying a week, their prices are great and rooms are a wonderful surprise for the price.. With all that being said, i am staying at the Value Place...

When I first got there the wrong room was saved for me, however, Ken was very apologetic and concerned for me and my health. The next morning Lori was also the same and immediately was able to place me in the correct room for the rest of the week. The stay was awesome and welcoming. A place I will definitely...

Great. Manager Lori is awesome. I hope to travel that direction again soon so I can stay there again. Friendly and efficient staff. Very clean and neat. The only criticism is I wish the pillows were better

Great value for your money. The staff are super friendly. There was a discrepancy in our bill and Lori was awesome; she took care of it right away. The rooms have a good amount of space and it is really nice and convenient to have the kitchenette.
