Really a nice place. Friendly hosts, clean rooms, location just off of I-80. The breakfast menu was one of the best ever. When we pulled into the parking lot, we were excited to see a lot of restored old cars in the lot that belonged to another group staying there.

We stayed at Super 8 in Clive for 3 nights for National Square Dance convention. It is an older hotel, could use some upgrades. The room and lobby were clean, the staff was friendly and welcoming. I was very disappointed in the breakfast option were limited.

Breakfast was waffles, cereal (2 kinds), gravy with biscuits (quite stale) bread for toast, yogurt coffee and juice drink. Seems like a lot, but it was minimal. Only grape jelly. One pot of gravy so... More

This is now my go to place when I come down to Iowa. Fiance' lives down there and this is truly the only place we can stay.
