    They didn’t care about the dog other than collecting their fees. We would not stay here again.

    Best hotel of the year!

    I travel 3-4 days monthly with the pup. This, by far, was the best hotel I’ve been at this year. Super clean newer hotel with plenty of area at the hotel and nearby to walk dogs.

    Great Location

    Enjoyed our stay at this hotel! The rooms were clean and comfortable. We were right next to the side entrance where the dog area is located, so that was very convenient. Located right off the freeway, and right across from a Cracker Barrel and Wendy’s. I would stay here again!

    Great stay

    We stay here every June and love the location and the hotel. Front desk gentleman wasn’t very friendly. Sent us to the room on the third floor and we were exhausted. The elevator wasn’t working so we went up the stairs and when we got up there the card readers didn’t work. We went back down and he activated them. Front desk person is a huge reflection on the Hotel in general. May want to work on that.

    WOW! What a Great Place

    This was an awesome experience! The Best Western in Clive, IA was reasonably priced, very clean, and very friendly. Our pup was welcomed with a gift bag of pup bones when we got there and when we got to our room it looked and smelled like it was brand new. Very quiet and a very nice place behind the hotel to walk our pup too.

    Great location

    This hotel is very nice, the king size bed was very comfortable and the pillows were great. It was a quiet stay. We were on the first floor near an exit to walk our dog. The breakfast wasn’t very good.

    My new go-to in Des Moines!

    From the outside this hotel didn't look amazing but I was pleasantly surprised. The lobby and rooms are really nice. The bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever slept in and had lovely pillows, not flat little pancakes. The hotel was very quiet, and despite being right by an exterior door and a staircase, we weren't disturbed at all by noise from the other guests. And the front desk staff was very kind and efficient.

    We brought a dog with us and this hotel not only has plenty of grassy areas for her to relieve herself, but some were big enough for her to actually play fetch on, which was amazing for a border collie after 10 hours in the car. Also, the local Hy-Vee is the most amazing grocery store I've ever been in. The variety available is astounding. It made eating healthy on a road trip very easy. This is my new go-to hotel for Des Moines now for when I travel cross-country. It's perfect for an overnight with a pet.

    Pretty good!

    We checked in at 3am and they had our first floor room near a door ready. Night shift Staff was delightful. Breakfast was just okay, but it was a weekday during a pandemic, so no real complaints.
    Room was tight but clean.

    First stay was better than second

    This hotel was very dog friendly during our first stay. The staff was a bit overwhelmed during our second stay. And they actually somehow overlooked our need through BringFido for a pet-friendly room. We fortunately got a room. The floors were ever so slightly greasy, which was a little uncomfy. But otherwise it’s a decent property.

    Convenient Location off Expressway

    We have stayed at this hotel several times over the past couple of years. While the beds and pillows are comfortable, it is feeling worn and tired. Our shower curtain was ripped and the hallways feel unclean. Probably the result of a COVID year and the inside of the property could use some TLC. However, it is a convenient location at the end of a day of travel and has good surroundings for walking the dog.

    Fine Des Moines hotel option

    Picked this place while driving through Des Moines, Iowa. Reception was easy and friendly. Great room with sofa area, and usual amenities. Good air conditioning and floors (instead of carpets, a good thing). Mostly, it's a terrific location. I needed a quick stop at Petsmart (around the corner), and there are many meal choices. (We went to Tasty Tacos...). Would definitely return.

    Nice place

    The hotel was nice and clean. They welcomed our dog. I like that floors weren’t carpeted. We were on the first floor that was very convenient.

    Nice hotel for dogs

    We spent 1 night. We have 2 dogs, a German Shepherd and a Labrador. It was quiet, clean with easy access to outside pet area. We were at end of hallway with an exit door close.

    Great night’s stay on long trip

    Comfortable stay for me and my dog. Requested and received first floor room. Good grassy areas on site for dog walking. Quiet and clean. Mini-fridge and microwave. The in-room jacuzzi was perfect after a very long day of driving.

    Best Best Western

    Big dog friendly. We got upgraded to a suite on the first floor right by the side exit/entrance which was perfect for our old mid-large size dog. Pet potty area outside. Only $25 pet deposit, not too bad. Hotel staff was very nice and accommodating. Free continental breakfast.

    Great location

    Very nice, comfy bed, four pillows, thick towels. Disliked that they put $100 hold on your credit card - mini bar stocked with five items all under $5 and no booze

    Clean comfortable rooms and dog areas

    This was a nice clean and quiet room. There were a lot of kids in the hotel for baseball tournament and we didn’t hear a peep.

    Clean Room

    Very clean, especially in era of covid. Easy check in and parking. Nice grassy area to walk the dog around. Room was one without carpet, so felt a little loud but overall, nice stay with a pet.

    Nice And Clean

    Hotel staff was very friendly and welcoming. Room was nice and clean and did not smell of past doggies. It was a good call for them to put in wood laminate floors. I’m sure it makes the clean up a lot easier. This was our first time traveling with our dog and using pet friendly hotels. We are very allergic to cats, so it was nice for us that they only allow dogs. Nice breakfast for the humans. I would definitely recommend.

    Great hotel without Carpet in Room

    I was greeted by a super friendly front desk clerk that also treated my little guy to a cookie after the long drive. The room was comfortable, with wood laminate floors. The hotel had grassy areas with bags for easy clean up. The hotel also had nice amenities for humans, like breakfast!

    clean and friendly

    After going to the days inn and laquinta inn we finally settled on best western. Front desk staff was very friendly and even showed us our room before we paid to make sure we were comfortable. Previous 2 places smelled old and smokey and the days inn is known for prostitution in the area. Plus he gave my dog a treat too! 5 stars BW!
