Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ajweb5 Excellant Facility and Staff
We have been staying at Candlewood for several years. We have family in Ankeny, Iowa. It is located in an upscale area with plenty to do along with a large mall a short distance away.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by doitnow Another solid experience
When traveling, the less unexpected surprises the better. Candlewood was exactly what we expected. Great room, excellent staff and a very good overall hotel experience. Will stay here again.

The only issue that I have with this hotel is that there is a door on the second floor which looks like it has been pried open/broken into. The front desk person tried to stick me in this room and I refused due to not feeling safe.
Please have the room door repaired on the second floor. looks like it has been broken into before.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by boston1975 Clean and comfortable
I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else in the Desmoines IA area.This place is clean and they really cater to the people who travel frequently.Very professional and once the staff knows you,you are family to both parties and they know you and your habits and work so hard to be accommodating!Hands down the best place in Iowa to stay. VERY CLEAN!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by doitnow A great hotel with a very good staff
Bobbi (Mgr) and her staff did a wonderful job for us. The room was clean, neat and well maintained. We felt safe and the facilities were in perfect working condition (workout equipment, free laundry, WiFi, cable TV). Anything we asked of the staff was taken care of quickly and with enthusiasm. We could not have asked for a better hotel experience. Will definitely stay here again when in West Des Moines.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by steelmam20 worst property ive ever stayed at
I stay with ihg properties all over the us i spentba good 3-4;months a year in your hotels. This location i called and set up a business rate with the sales manager and we also agreed that it would be ok for me to pay cash and leave a deposit i was told i could never get behind always have a positive balance that was fine with me. Apoun checking the head manager bobbi was helping us as soon as she saw we were payin cash she got very rude and at one point told me that was not going to work i explained to her how this arangemebt was set up thru the sales manger. Then goes and gets her cell phone and calls the sales manager to see if i was lying right in front of me then she proceeded to check me in. After being harassed by the staff for my id after my husband had sll ready provided his i explained how mine was recently stolen. The following week i get a nock on my room door from bobbi and was wanting to inspect my room for no reason which was fine and it was to her satifaction. A hr later she knocks on my door again with a police officer asking for my id once again i explain how it was stolen but gave him my info. My husband was talking with the officer and bobbi and expressed how he feels he being treated like a criminal for paying cash and we have never even owed them any thing that we have done nothing wrong. The officer said the same thing that we had done nothing and to go about our day. The very next day my husband went to pay for more days and she bobbi said no sir im asking you to leave and im calling the cops so once again the cops came and watched us move out all for simply paying cash my children wete scared and worried why wewere asked to leave. I feel beening treated this way all cause i payed in cash with a agreement made by there staff is absoulty rude and inexceptable and i would like to disscuss this farther with ihg managment. Thank you

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Wisconsinvisitor Older hotel only sinlge beds in rooms
Older hotel good for a business trip with one person - small rooms with kitchenette and refrigerator - good work space. Not a family oriented room or facility. Would not recommend. Value not good for hotel quality.
