Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FPH46 Done With Winter Weather?
Another great stay for us at our home away from home. This time the weather was ABOVE freezing and looking like it just might be time for Spring to arrive. The staff was very helpful and friendly, as usual. Looking forward to our visit next month!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by uIowaRon The best Candlewood in the U.S.
Have stayed at several Candlewood Suites. This is the best managed & staffed that I've stayed in. Kudos to everyone at W. Des Moines Candlewood!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Casey51 Wonderfully clean and and modern
Unfortunately, we were only able to stay one night, but this spacious accommodation made us want to stay much longer. Everything is done with high quality and excellent taste. The cupboard is so well stocked, and the convenient grocery down the hall was a great perk! Everything was wonderfully clean. We would recommend this to our older friends or business acquaintances! Younger families would miss having a pool. We will stay here again if we get the opportunity!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by tasha32 very comfortable room with only one major complaint
My overall stay at the hotel was great. The bed was very comfortable, and the room had plenty of amenities. I did not really get to utilize the full kitchen as I was only there for 3 nights. My biggest complaint was that I was on the second floor which was half smoking and half no smoking. When you would exit the elevator, you had to walk through the smoking rooms section to get to the no smoking rooms. The smell walking through this area was very unenjoyable and set the tone for what to expect when you got to the room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FPH46 Cold Outside but Warm Inside!
Another month of brutally cold winter weather made being outdoors very uncomfortable. Very grateful for the smiling faces of the staff and the warmth of our room as we returned to our "home away from home" each day.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RG Triumph W. Des Moines Candlewood Suites...Excellent value & staff
I've traveled extensively for 41 years and value a clean hotel room and quality bed above all else. Candlewood Suites in W. Des Moines provided that and more.
My two stays were brief, but I was very pleased with the modern design, general materials and space in one of their 2-room suites. Excellent value, easy to set up computer for business work and pleasant staff: both Bobbi & Matt were gracious and quick to assist.

Bobbi came through again with her team made up of Blake, Matt and Andrew who all made us feel right at home even though we were away from our home. And, it was Christmas time too! Really did have a great stay and will look forward to returning again next month!

I really did enjoy my stay at your property location in Des Moines, IA.
I have stayed at this location in the past and I can see all of the upgrades to my room that were made.
I really do appreciate the staff and their fast and curtious service that they provided to me.

We had our puppy with us & I felt totally comfortable with him there. The room was clean and had everything in it we could ever think of needing. The fitness room was awesome as well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dustinc17 Pretty good, but beds are too small
My only request is that they change their rooms to king beds. Everything else was great!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by dm1974 great rooms but a unique hotel
I have never stayed at this type of IHG hotel. The rooms were contemporary and nice. The front desk and feel of the public areas was less welcoming than most hotels I've stayed at. I doubt I will stay at another candlewood.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by marianne2 Great for business travel
There were several things I really appreciated: excellent lighting in the bathroom, several electrical outlets, salt and pepper. The bed was comfortable, service great. My only suggestion would be to provide visitors with coffee in their room every day, not just the first day

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by klfkansasbound Clean, dog-friendly, fast WIFI connection
We stayed for free using Priority Club points. Even though we were traveling with our small dog we did not get put in a "dog" room - the room had no evidence (smell or otherwise) of pets. It was roomy and clean, very nice sheets and pillows and queen bed was comfortable for the two of us.
Bathroom was very clean, shower had a very high head and good water pressure. Nice after a whole day of driving! This property is located close to food and gas stations and less than a mile from a grocery store. I asked at the desk about pizza delivery and got a very good recommendation.
Overall a very nice one-night stay. I have stayed at the Motel Six just across the parking lot from this Candlewood and there is no comparison - this property is cleaner, quieter, and better clientele.
Good outdoor grassy area for walking the dog and complementary pickup bags to boot!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GarrettP Much better than the usual suite hotel
For the price I paid for a night in a king suite, I was astonished by the quality of the room, cleanliness, amenities and service quality. I have stayed in hotels that cost many times more and they didn't even come close. The room was tastefully furnished with a modern touch and there were too many extras to list. Candlewood provided the most positive hotel stay I've experienced in a very long time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NGSPROF Great Experience !
As a seasoned traveler, I must say this is the most delightful long-term stay I've had had in 30+ years. The room was nicely decorated, well equipped and very clean as was the entire property.
The entire staff was incredibly pleasant and friendly and made my 3-month stay comfortable and enjoyable 24x7. Bobbi and Matt were standout; always greeting me with a kind smile when returning each evening and incorporated me as part of the family there.
Staff really made the difference; better than prior experiences at 5-Star hotels. This property will definitely be my 1st choice when staying in the Des Moines area.
