Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Not Pleased"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
I stayed for four nights. Second night bed not made, cleaning spray bottle on counter by refrigerator. Dirty cup, two glasses in sink. No backup toilet tissue. Last night at your hotel, no toilet paper, no hand towels or wash cloth in bathroom. I stayed with a wedding party. I hope everyone else didn't have problems. Next visit to Des Moines will stay at Marriott Courtyard. Jacqueline Evans.
