Great stay!

Well thank you traveler. I am glad you enjoy the new Best Westerns around the country. We have indeed changed the face of BW over the years and thank you for noticing that positive change. Have a wonderful summer and pick Best Western for more great adventures and next time when passing through Des Moines, don't hesitate to stop by.

They are eager to serve

Thanks Dan, I am so glad you liked your stay. Thank you for recognizing the efforts of my staff to please and accommodate great travelers such as you. I am glad you enjoyed our breakfast on real china. Yes, I agree, food just tastes better from china then from paper doesn't it? All the best in your travels and we hope to see you again soon.

Excellent hotel!

We came in on Saturday for a wedding at 2:00 pm hoping to check in a little early for a wedding at 4:00. Was told our room would not be ready because it was a king suite. Asked if there was somewher... more

Dear Guest, I am sorry for not being able to accommodate your early check in request. As you rightly pointed out you were a part of a wedding group of about 30 rooms that all wanted to check in as early as 8 am. With a sold out hotel the previous night we could not possibly accommodate all those requests without calling in our last nights' guests and asking them to leave so we can get them ready for your party. That would have been rude and unacceptable. Asking you to wait till our designated check in time was preferable, even if it did not meet your expectations. I am sorry you object to our check in procedures with disclosures about our non smoking, deposit and pet policies but those are important procedures to follow to make sure guests do not abuse the comfort of others by smoking or bringing in undeclared pets. We simply cannot look at a guest and assume whether one looks responsible to skip those, as you are implying. I am sorry if the procedures offend your sensibilities but we have to treat all guests equally as you know. In regards to towels we will gladly get those to you but you have to keep in mind that we are a limited service hotel and do not have a 24 hour maid service. When you called at 7 am the only person here was the receptionist and she could not leave the front desk unattended to run up the towels and have guests wanting to check out waiting. We are a limited service hotel that offers a great value which you can see by looking at your bill but that means we cannot full fill all your requests immediately and have to find other ways to meet those. My staff is excellent and I am very proud of them. If they have to say no to the guest that does not mean they are rude but that they have to deal with limitations such as the case of the towels or the early check in request. There is always a way to full fill the request but it may not be immediate as you would like it. It does not mean they are rude. All the best in your travels and may all your requests always be full filled immediately.
