Recently stayed here for business. Appears to be a recent build as everything appeared new, clean and tastefully decorated. Friendly staff. The usual Hampton breakfast. Dinning choices are non existent at the exit so you have to proceed the the next exit for food.

My stay was a little stressful in a business sense, The staff's efforts and assistance was flawless their when the extra mile to help and advise me to the local area stopping and dining options during my stay. This facility is flawless, well maintained. The room was extremely comfortable expected clean and it was!! The workout and pool were spotless!

Room very clean, comfortable king size bed, nice seating area and separate area to use for getting ready while someone else uses private shower or toilet. Loved the extra sink and counter in entry way.

My family stayed here while I was in training for work. The staff was all very friendly and helpful. The room was big, clean and quiet. The beds were also comfortable. Breakfast had tons of options and it was all good. The pool and hot tub were clean and we had it all to ourselves. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. It is out of Des Moines just enough so you are not "in" the city, but close enough it was just a 10-15 minute drive to downtown.

My family was traveling to Iowa to support one of our children's school function. The function was located at Iowa State University and this hotel was the closest we could get to the campus. Other reviews which my spouse had read warned of the Iowa DOT being nosey but we didn't encounter any noises during our stay. Our travel back and forth to campus was time consuming but worth it at the end of the day. Nice to relax away from campus activities!

Our stay at this Hampton was excellent as always. Very clean, modern, and in a great location for us. My only complaint and it isn't with this location, was that I discovered on my exit that Hilton had erased all my previous HHonor credits? Makes me feel that I need to re-evaluate the future of staying at Hampton Inns?

We were out of town and our vehicle had a malfunction late at night. We called to check availability and spoke with Sophie, who was very personable, professional, and genuine - she saved the room we needed and made the process a breeze. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Tess who was given our information as we walked in. Both of our children were tired, upset, and somewhat loud (They're 12 weeks and 1 year old). Tess was very empathetic and on point when it came to helping us check in. She even g... Read more

This hotel is typical of Hilton properties. Clean rooms & public areas and very helpful, friendly staff. We were not familiar with Ankeny, before I booked the room. There are no restaurants within walking distance. The hotel is a bit isolated. We had to get on I35 & go to another exit to find restaurants.

Our room was very comfortable (and reasonably priced, I might add) and the front desk staff was so friendly. The best part - we got to select the exact room we wanted through an online check-in service! Highly recommend this hotel!

Stayed in a king suite for 6 days. This room was nice and big , it was clean and comfortable . The breakfast was good but at times ran out of coffee and spoons of all things. The shower head was broken and toilet seat was loose when I arrived but were fixed the same day when I mentioned it to the front desk. The refrigerator did not have a freezer compartment

The problem and failure to correct it has never been experience previously at my many stays at Hampton or Hilton hotels. The situation we encountered is not reason for me to not recommend Hilton hotels, either this one or others. Typically I select Hilton hotels if available for all of my travels.

Stayed three nights over a weekend. Place was full with mostly families with little kids who all went swimming. Which left hallway, elevator and vending areas soaked with water. Ok, let the kids have their fun. Then there were the pizza boxes, empty soda cans, wet towels decorating the public spaces, ok kids will be kids. At least it was quiet after 10pm. Rooms were Ok, generally clean but did note the night stand was sticky near the clock.. what? Breakfast was yet another story. Went to checkou... Read more

The hotel was rather new and had good curb appeal with the exception of the DMV guys sitting in the lawn all day as their testing track was on the adjoining property. The problem I had was at bedtime when I wanted to watch TV and the remote did not work. I asked the staff to please bring me some new batteries. The woman at the front desk told me I had to come and get batteries. I had to get dressed and go to the front desk and take care of it myself. For $140 a night I was not happy that they co...

The Hampton Inn, Ankeny, IA was a perfect location for us. We wanted to have rapid access to downtown Des Moines, but also wanted to head toward Minneapolis with no morning traffic. The hotel provided all of the amenities and quality we expect from Hampton Inns, and in this case, we selected a king suite which was really nice and a terrific value. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Just an overnight visit to this hotel and the service was fantastic. The gentleman checking me in was accommodating and helpful! We switched rooms after checking in and instead of getting upset he made me feel like he made a mistake. When in reality was just me being picky - so thank you!

I have to be honest that I'm a little partial to Hampton Inns and typically seek them out when needing a place to stay. When we checked in, our room was pretty warm, so we lowered the thermostat and headed to dinner. Our room had not cooled 2 hours later when we returned. The front desk worked on making it right - but had no rooms the type we'd reserved. They bumped us up to a different type of room (2 kings instead of one with double queens). The beds were comfortable. I always wish breakfast h... Read more

We had a nice stay at the Hampton Inn. Good quality, clean room, good breakfast, and we enjoyed the pool. Hampton Inn is consistent in quality and the one in Ankeny is no exception. The only thing is wish we had were restaraunt options within walking distance. We had to split up and only had one vehicle leaving the other person to find a taxi.

Manager and morning check-out people are outstanding and friendly. Location is extremely safe and in a very quiet area close to Adventureland Park.

I am a regular user of Hampton Inns. This one had the same great quality and service as the others in which I have stayed. I enjoy the Otis Spunkmeier cookies, the beverage service, and the indoor pool/hot tub at all locations. The beds are comfortable, and it's always clean. The staff are super nice. This one was no different. The only thing is it wasn't close to a lot of restaurants/gas stations, and there are red light cameras at the intersections nearby. Other than that, it was a grea...

I'm writing this particular review because I don't feel the staff cares whether we had a good overall experience or not. That means a heck of a lot when choosing a property. A recent stay at the Hampton Inn & Suites Ankeny IA was not the best experience in terms of customer satisfaction. As a Hilton Honors loyalty program member I was surprised first upon arrival to hear the front desk say we had 2 reservations, when in fact I had added my husband in the additional guest line of the online reser...

Seemed like a lot of points for this location at a Hampton Inn. When we got there at 9. We had to wait at the counter for a person to show up, The business office internet was not working to print a document we needed. The room was clean but the bathroom had broken tiles and the shower door would not slide properly. The bed was comfortable. I found the breakfast to be par.

Other than rate gouging because it is State Fair time, this is a nice hotel. Clean and taken care of. Pool was very cold, however.

Hotel was great and we will definitely stay again on a future trip to Adventureland. It was very clean, updated, modern. Room was nice, bathroom was great. Complimentary breakfast eating area was outstanding - bright, clean, large, updated. My boys - 12 and 15 - and husband and I all loved the breakfast options.

I would recommend this motel to anyone traveling the area. Very clean rooms, WIFI very fast, super sleeping beds, nice large flat screen TV (Which featured Direct TV.). Great breakfast venue, as always with Hampton. After staying exclusively at Hampton's, this Hampton Inn is magnitudes better than the Hampton's in the Southern states.

Stopped on our way back from a trip to Seattle. We were both very tired, walked in the door and was greeted by Sofie. What a wonderful employee, she was cheerful and just downright nice to us and made our night a lot better. Her knowledge of the area helped us find some food quickly and her attitude was fantastic. It's not often you have someone like Sofie greet you at check in. Thanks for making our trip better. And we will stay here again on our next trip out this way .

The room was great. Large, very clean, quiet and comfortable. If we'd simply left the next morning we'd rate this hotel better than the average Hampton. But as usual, we had breakfast, at about 8:30. That's where things went downhill. No regular coffee urn and the robust was empty. The garbage bin was overflowing and one cereal dispenser was stuck with what appeared to be clumped cereal.

I had to make three phone calls to get the rate posted on their own internet site, and I do not have time for that poor a procedure. First, the hotel staff would not book us in for the posted rate; secondly, the reservationists at their national site did not want to book me for their posted rate. On my third call I insisted on it, since it was in fact an available rate and they had plenty of rooms available.

Certainly not a fancy hotel, but for the price it's a good value. Room was small (and not a suite) but on par with 3 or the last 4 Embassy Suites we've stayed at (even the beds seemed the same quality, though the pillows were a little too unsupportive). Breakfast was OK. Not a lot of options but what there was was reasonably good. Overall facility seemed in good shape, parking was ample, location was easy to get to, and front desk staff was acceptable.

Cleanliness was spotty (pre-arrival cleanliness and maid service both should have been slightly better). Breakfast was nothing special (some quality issues and certainly could use a few more choices). Otherwise a reasonable hotel for the price.

The front desk clerks were wonderful. Everyone we came in contact with was very pleasant, very helpful , and did a very good job!
