It was clean. Staff was friendly. Comfortable beds. Large rooms. Small snack bar but was able to get what we wanted late at night. No children with us but appeared family friendly. Pools were large and clean.

Love the indoor pool area with the fun stuff for both kids and adults, the Bath & Body Works products in the room and the new Spectators restaurant.

What a great bunch of employees Adventureland Inn has. We had a wonderful time and were treated like "big spenders" which we aren't. Rooms were chosen for us to enjoy our time and be close to the pool. Thank you once more and hope we can do this again. We loved it.

I recently had a four night stay at the hotel. Check in was quick and easy. Room was clean & always maintained when I returned at the end of the day. The rooms are a bit dated, but I knew that going in. They are clean though & that's most important to me. I loved that they use Bath & Bodyworks Aromatherapy soaps & lotions as I use them at home. I used the pool and hot tub once...it was busy, but nice. The best improvement to the hotel is Spectators...their bar/restaurant. Good food. Great service. Great atmosphere. Lots of TVs to watch the Olympics and loads of other sports... Overall a very nice stay.

We found Adventureland Inn by accident while looking for a place to stay while we go to the Iowa State Fair. Our 5 year old and our 8 year old, who loved the pools, small water slides and arcade, and we liked the swim-up bar! The rooms were clean and comfortable - although a microwave would have been nice - and had plenty of room for a four person family. It was the perfect place to relax at night after long days walking around the fair.

Had a wonderful stay with family and friends. The two pool areas are well designed and fun for the whole family. Grandchildren had a wonderful time and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Close to the park and shuttle service is available. Our package came with a pizza party and the pizza was good as well.

We took our family here for an adventure together and planned to play at the Park all day. Rain changed our plan and Adventureland Park was actually closed. We were able to get one of our 3 rooms at 10:00 in the morning and we spent the day playing in the pool and enjoying our poolside rooms. The staff suggested the close-by theater for a fun option which proved delightful for our grandchildren. When we called for something, we got it. Extra coffee, help with our TV, a place to get our wine bottle opened. The day could have been a bust but with the help of the staff, the day was saved.

We planned a three family vacation for Adventureland park. This hotel is conveniently close to park with trolley running back and forth all day long. Super nice for families with small children needing naps in the afternoon. Hotel was clean and the rooms were comfortable. Two separate pool areas with splash pads and slides for our little ones. We requested three poolside rooms together and they accommodated us. The rooms were great with little patios and chairs outside the room. So nice for visiting and watching kids in the pool area. Will definitely plan another family vacation here as it was perfect for our a quick mini-vacation. Rooms had a refrigerator but no microwave. Would have been nice for warming left pizza. Towels at the pool were small. Those were just a couple of little things but the hotel had so many good accommodations that we will stay again for sure.

Overall

the room was clean. We stayed there with 2 kids (6 and 8). There was a patio that was part of the room. This was nice when it came to loading the car. The pools were great with the kids. I would say one of the top 3 hotel pools in Des Moines. One of the pools even has a swim up bar. There's a newly renovated restaurant that we had breakfast at before checking out.

Had a great time this weekend! My friend and I each got poolside rooms in the east courtyard. She took her 4 kids and I took my two kids plus one of their friends. We sat out on the patio enjoying adult beverages while the kids enjoyed the pools.

We had our 4 yo granddaughter staying with us and she had a blast. They do have 3 pool areas and the way it's setup, it kind of naturally separates child by age and ability which was nice for us with just one child. If you have more than one it might be more of a challenge. The room was clean and staff friendl
