I was new to the Des Moines area and stumbled upon this little Comfort Inn in the wee hours of the morning after seeing some shabby hotels that were either full, rundown or too noisy. Luckily this place got me some much needed rest and relaxation for a day and I got to see what Altoona had to offer. The...

I have stayed here numerous times over the last 4 years. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, and the breakfast is satisfactory. It's nothing fancy, but that's not why I stay there. I want a clean, comfortable place to get a good night's sleep before my Board meetings. The staff has always been friendly to me and recognizes...

This was a fabulous place to stay! From the moment we checked in until we checked out everything was great. The lady at the front desk, Susie, went above and beyond to ensure we had a great stay. She was extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was very clean and inviting. Modern decor, comfy bed and had all the amenities...

We stayed here for one night, which was one night too many. Rooms appear to be decorated nicely, but that's where the positives end. Rooms are small and the bathroom was TINY!! And you can just tell that everything was done cheaply. Thin walls, very small pool, smelled bad.

Could tell had been another brand renovated and rebranded. Settle Inn to Comfort Inn? Did a beautiful job with remodel. Staff was WONDERFUL from AM shift Abby (who cheerfully upgraded me) to evening shift (didn't catch her name) who made great cookies, despite her fear they were overdone. Not a lot of comfort inns do cookies. Nice touch. Suite was...

Two of us stayed here while traveling on business. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful.. The rooms were clean and quiet. There was a free breakfast but we did not eat until later in the morning.

The location is perfect, the staff are very nice but this is an overpriced re-painted 2-3 star hotel. Our room was small, the bed frame was not assembled right , which left a steel bar extending out --could catch your shin . The room smelled like animal(?) urine. The manager came and checked it out and was embarrassed. All they...

Pulled in late with no reservations and did get a room. Bed was comfortable. The bathroom was tiny, really tiny. No counter to put toiletries on. Very little room to get self and luggage through the entry. We have stayed in a room 3 sizes bigger area at this place. We have now stayed in their best and their worst....

“Our Tip for you is to stay across the Street at Adventureland Inn.”
  • Toilet build-up where water enters the toilet bowl at top of bowl. This is long-term buildup
  • Our Room Shower Shelf area. Distressed and in need of better investment and maintenance upkeep.
