This hotel is NOT a safe establishment for any females traveling alone, or in multiples. We had purchased a 2 night stay for a girls weekend on Hotels.com looking forward to a fantastic weekend getaway. We arrived in a King Suite which had a terrible smell as you walked in the door, stains on the sheets, wet dishes in the...

This place is very disappointing. Room and furniture stink with funk, beds are old, broken down mattresses & very uncomfortable, Wi-Fi is very slow, when it works. Management becomes very defensive/hostile when approached with these issues, especially if you want to leave early and get pro-rated refund....basically, they refuse to act with any measure of customer service, concern over dissatisfied...

Unsafe and I have pictures. You walked downhill in the room towards the airconditioner. Floor is not even. Major cracks in wall. 1215 had to have maintenance come because we could not even lock our door. Had to pull door in to room to lock so did not seal shut. 13 inch tv. Awful. I have so many pictures to...

I stayed for an extended period. The facility has transitioned from a hotel to an apartment / extended stay facility. It is definitely geared toward longer term stays and the longer you stay the better the value! Don't expect hotel service because it isn't a hotel. The signage is deceptive since it says it is a hotel / suites facility....

I have stayed at the Clive Hotel for about a year while on contract in Des Moines. i have watched it go from a slow decline to a nose-down crash straight into a dump of a hotel. When i first moved in, the carpets were cleaned every week..Now once a month if you are lucky. there were 3 ice machines...

I stayed at Clive Hotel and Suites for seven months in late 2006 and early 2007, being at the property Monday thru Fridays and departing on weekends. Unfortunately the property went the wrong direction during my stay. Clive Hotel is a six-story former Clarion Hotel with no smoking on the upper floors. The rooms are nicely remodeled and the price...

I stayed here for 2.5 months while they were in construction. It wasn't horrible but it was no where near great. My ceiling dripped water on three separate occasions and the desk clerks never seemed to know whether or not the problem had been fixed. My mattress sunk down so low in the middle it was almost touching the floor....

I stayed there 8 months. Hotel is being remodeled by new owners. I believe things will get better as my room was just remodeled and I was pleased.

We had a wonderful time for a great price. The ad on the internet says in-hotel reastaurant and bar. But they are only open if there is a certain amount of stayers at the hotel. So you might want to call and see if the reastaurant will be open. The food is great and they make awsome drinks!! Try the...
