    Great place to stay with my daughter. The pool and hot tub are great and we love the fire pit area in the evenings. The rooms are so comfy and relaxing!!

    Great service, clean
    I thought I accidentally left a bag in the room. A day later, when I noticed, the attendant personally searched the room twice, the lost and found, and made notice to her co-workers. Though I later discovered the bag, I appreciated her effort. The room as clean, check-in was easy.

    Great place to stay!
    We have stayed at Wildwood Lodge numerous times, and we always enjoy our stay. They have a wonderful hot breakfast for guests. Location is very convenient. Comfortable beds. Great place to stay!

    Poor 2.0
    Think twice about staying here.
    I rarely write negative reviews. In times other than these (pandemic) I have might have given this property a great review like so many others already have. BUT beware of Wildwood’s lack of pandemic protocols. The check in staff person wore his mask at half mast, nose exposed. Staff person assisting breakfast service wore no mask, even during food prep. Most guests do not wear masks in the common, shared spaces, even in elevators. My wife and I are 76 and 79 years old. What these behaviors communicate to us is about the same as giving us the proverbial finger. We stayed at 4 other hotels during this vacation and every one of them made us feel respected and safe.

    Home away from Home
    We have stayed here many times and though it's a little out of our way for what we're ordinarily in the Des Moines area for, it is well worth the extra time and distance. It's always sad to leave! We'll be back again and again :-)
