Hotel was in a good location close to the interstate. Hotel and rooms were outdated. Rooms were not dirty but didn’t necessarily feel clean staying there. Okay for one night but wouldn’t choose to stay there again. We were charged $10 and $5.99 on our credit card after the stay but told the CC was only for incidentals. Had to call to find out why we had charges. $10 was for parking which we were not told we had to pay to park. And $5.99 was wifi which we didn’t connect to. When we called, they resolved both issues but still a pain to deal with after your stay.

Response from Brandon Danner, General Manager at Sheraton West Des Moines Hotel
Responded 12 Nov 2020
Good day suku34. We thank you for staying with us at the Sheraton West Des Moines. My apologies your stay was not the wonderful experience we want all our guests to encounter. Please know we take all our guest's feedback and ensure we address matters with the utmost urgency. In regards to the incidental charges you incurred, I apologize it was not explained upon check in. There should have been no surprises to any charges. I am glad our team was able to resolve the matter for you, but I will follow up with the hotel team to ensure charges are explained upon arrival. My apologies again, and I hope you will stay with us again in near future so we can demonstrate this is not typical service provided at our hotel.

This hotel has absolutely no regard for the safety of its staff and guests. Despite it being the policy of the hotel’s parent company (Marriott) that everyone must wear a mask in common spaces, guests walked around freely without them. Further, loud, wild, rambunctious children ran around the hotel (again, maskless). Additionally, members of the hotel staff did not wear masks as shown in the photo! Iowa is currently experiencing extremely high rates of the virus; this reckless abandon shown toward the health and safety of everyone is absolutely abhorrent. If you care about your health, and that of others around you, stay elsewhere!

All of the inconveniences experienced were Covid-19 related. Example, no housekeeping services, no breakfast or concierge club, etc. That said, Sheraton staff owns communicating these changes upon check in. Unfortunately, that was not done. I will say, the staff that I did encounter were friendly.

When we walked into the hotel we thought Wow, this looks like a nice hotel. That immediately changed when we walked into the room. There were brown questionable stains on all over the floor, stains on the walls, a stain on the bed spread, and the cups in the room were filthy. There was also a mask left in one of the dresser drawers.. This place is disgusting! I would NOT stay here again. We were also told there was no housekeeping. Just because there is no house keeping does not mean the hotel rooms should be dirty. Look elsewhere!

When you walk into the hotel you will be very impressed, the first floor is stunning, unfortunately with Covid 19 it was totally empty. We were traveling with our dog so we had to make sure we stay at pet friendly hotels. We called ahead and checked, the Sheridan charged a $50.00 Pet cleaning fee (the highest fee we paid of all the major chains) plus my wife asked about their Covid 19 cleaning inspections. We decided the $50.00 fee plus the precautions she was told they take in sanitizing each room we would stay there. Needless to say we were sadly disappointed. The carpeting in the room (Room 233) was full of stains. The refrigerator had drinks left in it from a previous guest. I was very surprised to see 4 glasses in the room that did not have any type of seal around the top. The ceiling had a tile falling down . The bathroom needed some updating, the drain plug in the sink was broken off and the door on the vanity was badly scratched up. My wife went to the desk and asked what cleaning of the carpet is done between guests. Between guests the carpet is vacuumed. I would hate to see what they did pre Covid 19. There were less than 15 cars in the parking lot. If our room was representative of this hotel's cleanest rooms, I would hate to see if an unannounced bus of travelers showed up.
