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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by boston1975 The most accomadating and friendly staff of any place ive stayed
The staff at Candlewood always has a smile on their face and truly must love what they do. Every team member is happy to go out of their way to achieve complete hospitality! The property is immaculate and has superb management. IHG should consider themselves very fortunate to have these people in place. If your looking to stay in the DesMoines area then look no further. Ive been staying there for at least four years and have always enjoyed my stay!

As usual we had a very comfortable and welcome stay at our "home away from home"! We so appreciate the quiet respite we get at this place we call home. The staff is always so accomodating and kind. It is always a pleasure to see the smiling faces welcoming us back. The entire staff is very pleasant. Blake, Bobbie and Matt have become like family to us. When it is time to leave we hate to say goodbye!

We love our "home away from home" at the Candlewood Suites in West Des Moines, Iowa. Our one week stay each month is always a pleasant experience. The accomodations are very comfortable and always clean. The staff is not only friendly but go out of their way to make us feel truly "Welcome Home"!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JEDM Clean comfortable rooms and excellent service
I stayed here for one week last month. I spend 95% of my life staying in hotels and I have to say that the customer service and friendliness of the staff here excelled well beyond most hotels. The suites were very clean and comfortable, and the kitchens were stocked with all the basic things you need to cook a meal. The staff was extremely friendly and went out of their way to help me print and fax a few documents I needed. This hotel location also has a great collection of free movie rentals which I enjoyed on my night off. I highly recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by boston1975 Hotel staff and suites are perfect for comfort and business
If your on a business trip,this is the place to stay! I was able to book a suite and have a few different customers meet me in my room. The suite is modern,clean,professional and yet very comfortable. The design is set up perfect.Couches,recliner and the table is large enough for full size blue prints with free internet. All my personals are in a different room,out of my customers site which in turn makes them comfortable to visit and go over plans. If you need anything at all the hotel staff will go out of their way to accommodate whatever your needs are. The staff is led by Bobbie. Andrew ,Matt And Brenda care about your needs just as Bobbie would,which is absolutely top notch! Highly recommended for business or pleasure!
