Verified Reviews of Ramada Hotel Des Moines Airport

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Softball Team Stay!"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Pros Hotel staff kind, friendly, helpful. Plenty of parking and clean. Newly remodeled rooms and comfortable large beds and linens. Fridge and microwave in rooms. Nice pool area for kids with plenty of towels. Casey's right across the road. Cons Rooms small. No closet to hang clothes. Door keys stopped working on several occasions. Door would flash red and still open (scary). Pool showed slide on website. No slide. Continental breakfast starts at 7 am and we needed to be at our destination at 7, therefore, we couldn't have breakfast.

"Great staff, but Hotel needs updating"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The staff was very welcoming but as we walked to our rooms, we could smell moisture in the building. The room was fine, beds were comfy but upon staying, we discovered no fan in the bathroom and moisture build up like mold or mildew on the bathroom ceiling. The pool area was closed on Friday night and the Whirlpool was closed off. Very disappointing! The breakfast was excellent with lots of variety, but the Benigan's is seeing its wear and due for a remodel. Overall average is the best rating I can give.
