Yet another wonderful stay at a Marriott hotel. Everything we needed. Convenient location, clean, comfortable, quiet and excellent service. We never hesitate to stay at a Marriott hotel. Can"t say that about their competitors. As always, thank you for the wonderful stay.

If you are looking for a clean fresh conveniently located hotel with a very convenient Starbucks located inside the hotel at a great rate, this is the place. This hotel is up to the same standards as the more expensive hotels all around the same area, yet has the same quality for a much better rate. Book your room here... More

The first time we traveled to Iowa to drop my sister off at school we stayed here because it had the best reviews online, but we weren't very thrilled with the place. It was nice enough, but it was a pretty average hotel.

I am in Ankeny for business several times a year and have made this Courtyard my hotel here. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are clean. They are also deep so you are buffered from noise. Especially like the bistro and lounge area.

Stayed 3 nights at this location. The hotel is being remodeled however, the room I received was already finished. They are remodeling to the newer gray color theme and I barely noticed as it is well contained. No complaints whatsoever and soft towels to boot!

As a Marriott platinum member, I was given a courtesy upgrade to a spacious 2-room suite the weekend I stayed here. The wide granite wet bar, contemporary seating, good wood furniture in the main room; up-to-date bath and high quality Courtyard bedding; would have been worth paying for. The Grill at this property served hot breakfast sandwiches cooked to order;... More
