Colleyville, Texas3 contributions
What a nightmare after a 13 hour drive and looking forward to a relaxing evening. Non personable check in and walked in to a sauna of a room 405. The HVAC was trying but could not get the room below 74 humid degrees. The filter and coils were plugged solid with some sort of yuck and I tried cleaning both to help, pictures can be provided. The window would not fully close so I used a kitchen knife to wedge under the bottom to close the gap a bit. Plastic bag frozen to the bottom of the freezer, vent in the bathroom kept making a rhythmic clanking noise, fan off or on, some sort of device on the wall that would blink a bright green 20 times and then stay on for a period and then go back to blinking. Asked for another room and wanted to inspect it first which for some reason could not be done because there was only one employee there for some reason?? I called Marriott customer service and they were no help. Needless to say we both had a sleepless night listening to the overworked HVAC and that is also how I know the device on the wall blinked bright green, kind of like counting sheep, from not being able to sleep, I did throw a towel over it to soften the strobe effect. We finally gave up early in the AM and got the heck out so we could enjoy the coolness of the vehicle AC and push through to Detroit. The was a debacle of a Marriott stay and I stay at a lot of Marriott properties for work and pleasure. The facility is well past it prime and unfortunately we had to experience this after a long day on the road.

Hotel's Favourite
This is a late review from Dec 2021. We spent 4 nights in the hotel, in 2 different periods so 2 different rooms . First 3 nights in a 4th floor room, which definitely seemed nicer and cleaner. For some reason not consistent experience in the 2nd floor room. So speaking for the first nights, we enjoyed very much. Great staff specially management, which were very accomodating for our situation and to the many luggages we had brought. Room is good size and equiped with kitchen for longer stays. We had an issue with AC that was fixed very fast after we let them know. I’d say it is a very good option for travellers in the region.

Mini apartments that are tastefully decorated. Very clean!! Shampoo, conditioner, and body wash mounted in the tub enclosure. Nice quality. Breakfast was excellent! Wide variety of hot and cold items that were kept well stocked by a friendly attendant. Safe and clean neighborhood. Definitely would stay again.

My husband was REALLY cranky when we pulled up to TownePlace Suites. The receptionist, Taylor, was so fun and welcoming. We got a great room (who knew they all had stoves and refrigerators) and even though it was facing I-80, it was quiet. Taylor suggested the 1908 Draught House which was walkable which was perfect. The next morning, Taylor wasn't working but the male receptionist (didn't catch his name) was equally personable. Great breakfast and 3 different strengths of coffee!! We didn't bring our dog but I saw dogs there so it must be dog friendly. We are returning. Goodbye La Quinta.

Stayed here for the first time, but will likely not be the last. Good location to a major route on the west side of Des Moines and directly off of I-80, this gives fast access to a large part of the city and is very easy to find. Good sound insulation, even though we could see the Interstate from our room, there was no hint of noise from it.

Booked via online. Easy and affordable price. Requested extras (towels/toothbrush/razor ) all waiting at check in desk. Rooms was clean but table too large for area and club chairs were awkward. We were also facing outside main entrance with bright light -good thing black out drapes were there. Not told we needed to make reservation for fitness and pool. 2nd time passing through this year both were okay for short term

Had a brief 2-night stay and the location was ideal. The hotel was just off the freeway and the rooms were clean and spacious. Breakfast was included (bottled water, fruit and an energy bar) given the hotel no longer has a hot breakfast due to COVID-19. The room had plenty of outlets for plug-in of devices. Overall a comfortable stay.

We loved this place. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Lots of amenities including board games and cookware. We got upgraded to a 2-room suite with a pullout bed which was awesome. The kitchen is a real kitchen where you can cook. Close to lots of restaurants and Starbucks.

The staff was amazingly accommodating! After an eventful day pulling a travel trailer that had tire blowouts, we pulled in after midnight. Dave Y. At the front desk was very kind and welcoming! After our long day, he went out of his way to help us settle in for the night!! Will definitely return!
