Directions to the Stoney Creek Inn
The Stoney Creek Inn is located just off the combined Interstate 35/80. Both I35 & I80 merge together along the north side of the Des Moines Metropolitan area, thus making Stoney Creek very easy to access. Regardless of the direction you are traveling, exit the Interstate at the 86th Street / Exit 129 and proceed north to Birchwood Court on the right (east side). Take a right on Birchwood and then a left onto Stoney Creek Court with the Stoney Creek Inn on your right hand side.
