    Ok

    Very small unit. No cups for coffee and shower wouldn't shut off.

    Ad manipulation - Watch Out!

    The room that we were "assigned" to did not match what I was reserving online. Either Hotels.com or Frontdesk was manipulating the sales & ad. I wanted & thought I reserved an apartment. I ended up with a room 9 feet by 9 feet with bed & no room to walk around. When I called & complained I got no help from no one. I was able to get a better room & cheaper at a hotel.

    Terribly deceiving

    This place was advertised as a loft but was actually on the ground floor. The room was barely large enough to fit the bed in it (which was literally a foot off the floor). The room was nothing like the pictures advertised and literally was like staying in someone’s tiny basement.

    Had security come to our room while we were sleeping for a noise complaint. He said there was a report of a party when it was just me and my girlfriend. Terrible communication with the company

    Very small and cute but don’t provide a coffee maker with no cups.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Not a person to leave reviews, but I felt compelled here. The photos depict various elements of all of their rooms available...meaning that the economy option (the only available) shows a kitchen, couch, etc. However in reality it's just a really small room right off a sidewalk with a dorm fridge, an average bathroom with a weird showerhead, and a Keurig without mugs. It was very clean and they did okay with the crappy canvas. It was the cheapest price for a reason. I get it

    Great place to stay in Des Moines.

    Amazing property. Great location. Clean and well maintained. Pictures didn't quite match the specific property, however is was a great property to stay. Only draw back was parking ample but also the need specially if you get back late at night. Six miles from the airport, most attractions and restaurants are within a few miles from the property. Train near by, drove by every morning.

    A little home away from home in center city

    Great location. Cozy little apartment. Nice soaking tub and shower. Stackable laundry. Full kitchen. Grilled a nice Meal in the courtyard

  • 8.0.Very good

    The room is spacious, and clean. Having a full kitchen helps when there are not many restaurant nearby, at least there is a supermarket with in 10 minutes of walk, so I didn't have to try the restaurants also about 10 minutes walk. The place usually quiet except at least two time a day when the freight train goes by, especially annoying at night when I was sleeping. Other than that, for the money I paid, it is a very good deal.
