WOW.....this hotel has been completely renovated from floor to ceiling. Brand new flooring, linens, draperies, flat screen LG televisions, mattresses, paint, sinks, countertops - everything. It is like a new hotel. Well done corporate! We stayed here last fall in September and had to change rooms due to mold on the ceiling on a 3rd floor room. We were hesitant...

Clean, comfortable, safe and friendly. Save money by staying here with affordable rates and use the money you saved for the things you enjoy. Dinner-several options in the area, from budget friendly to fine dining. There is a huge mall less than a mile away as well as a movie theater, bars and fast food.

Stayed here one night and it was clean and quiet. Very few amenities if any. However, it was a good price and just what we needed for that night. It was convenient from I35 and in a good area of Des Moines.

Ehhh. That about sums it up. Bare bones. No coffee maker, no microwave, no fridge. Bathroom was clean, room was clean. TV had very limited channels. Biggest complaint was no lid on the toilet and when you flushed it spewed water out... so covered with bath mat. Poor water pressure and shower head was in an uncomfortable corner of the...

Very clean and friendly hotel for the money. The room was nice and cozy. Although the rooms are outdated it still was a very relaxing experience and I would gladly visit again. There were eating places within walking distance and that was great also. Great job and keep it up.

Luxury this isn't - but the price reflects this. No breakfast, no coffee machine in room; coffee in lobby morning only. Microwave in lobby area by soda machine and snack machine (out of order!). One plus, Perkins is open for all meals all hours, I think, and you can walk there. Not a place to rave about, but adequate for...

Booked for a three night stay during the state fair. All hotel rooms were overpriced and this was all we could get for less than $150. It was OK for the price. No real issues with the hotel itself. It was clean, room had plenty of space for us to buy food and keep in refrigerator, store our bags, and...

Request a disturb sign and front desk described how a guy had a heartache and died in there room.(to much information) Will say the rooms were very clean.

You get what you pay for. Exterior wall crumbling, handicapped cement barriers shattered, funky smelling hallways, noisy room facing interstate, no microwave, no refrigerator, no free wi-fi, no breakfast, no shampoo, no coffee, no updated tvs, no pen or paper, no channel guide, no ever coming back!! Person at front desk was friendly, though.

Beginning the morning in Utah, the second leg of my cross country journey got me to Des Moines (almost)! It was a rather dark night and the roads are not your typical freeway straight shot. It was a sight for sore eyes- the familiar sign with a large 6!! They did indeed leave the light on!! New, clean, and with...
