                      The discount price from Booked.net

                      Stayed at the bwmn on Tuesday night. Quiet, great time at pool and Jacuzzi. Great breakfast. Stayed again on Saturday. Noisy, kids everywhere. Didn't even go to the pool. Rained that night. In the morning ceilings were falling down in hallway and water leaks around. Breakfast was a buffet that ended up costing us $20.00. Coffee was charged for and buffet was so so. Better off using the ticket for free eggs and hash browns. They know how to cook em. Wouldn't recommend staying on a Saturday night if you want to relax.

                      I chose the hotel while on my iPad on a recent trip to Iowa. The staff were friendly. The hotel was great! I prefer a hotel where the room has a fridge and a microwave. I also try to choose one with a bar and restaurant in close proximity. We were AMAZED...the room was large, up to date and CLEAN. The on site restaurant was a real pleasure! And instead of the typical waffle/cereal breakfast, our breakfast was hot and made to order! This weekend we stayed at a 5 start hotel downtown Ft. Worth for $ 250 a night. We would stay at this BEST WESTERN over it, hands down. It is right off the interstate. If you need to stay in central Iowa, this hotel is a great choice.

                      The beds were nice.

                      The service was poor. The door leading from our room barely closed, and the outside door for the building didnt lock. Also there was no refridgerator or microwave in the room.

                      Our room was nice and quiet. The beds were very comfortable. The room was clean, Room Service was fast, yet delicious. All in all, the staff was friendly and made you feel welcome. I would recommend Best Western Metro North to my friends.

                      Nice comfy rooms. Pool and hotub a definate +.

                      Needed some updating for the dollar value. No microwave, frig etc. Wifi wasn't a very strong signal.

                      9.4

                      Having a pool side room with our grandson. The beds were the best we've ever slept in at a hotel!!! We also appreciated the microwave, fridge, and plenty of pillows. The room was clean and tidy! Thank you!

                      The only obstacle was the front desk young man. He was in a big hurry, talked to fast; too mechanical, where instead it should have been very welcoming and taken his time to explain the details.

                      The pool was very nice. Our room was neat and the beds comfortable. Housekeeping were very thorough and friendly. Our girls had lots of stuffed animals. When housekeeping made their bed, they placed the pillows and stuffed animals in a cute way that pleased the girls. Two thumbs up for the Ankeny diner and staff!! We liked having the diner in the hotel and not far from our room. Excellent food and service. Really gave our two little girls the royal treatment. We would stay at this Best Western again. Many restaurants, stores, & gas stations nearby. Also liked having two parks within walking distance for our children.

                      Although the pool was nice, we wouldn't want to get a room right next to the pool area again. We have two young children. The pool is open later at night, and there is a lot of yelling and screaming. We bought a fan to try and drone out the noise. We booked three nights and because of our stay being at a busy time we had to take what they had available.

                      The room was clean. The bed was comfortable

                      The air conditioner wasn't great. There were potato chips on the stairs leading up to our room. The entrance from the outside did not lock as it should have.

                      The restaurant, without having to go outside. The location was perfect for Saylorville Lake activities.

                      The smell of chlorine permeated the courtyard area and room.

                      I could stay in the same facility as my meeting. The restaurant was reasonably priced and was well managed and staffed. The pool was big enough to work off desert! The beds were comfortable. They allowed Booked.net to sell the last few rooms at less than half price!

                      I suggested that they have a board with movable lettering installed that directed people to their meeting, similar to what Holiday Inn has as standard equipment. I think that the desk clerk passed that along to management.

                      Convenient location and relatively inexpensive.

                      Our room was "no smoking", but obviously had been a smoking room in the past. We could still smell cigarette smoke in the room, especially when the vent fan in the bathroom was turned on.

                      It was nice to have room service and the server was very friendly. The front desk personnel were also friendly. The motel was conveniently located and the price was reasonable. The room had a fridge and microwave.

                      The room had only two each of face cloths, hand towels, and bath towels. The room needed maintenance, looked worn and dingy, making is appear like it wasn't clean. Room service silverware was plastic.
