We went pool the safety rope was broken. I repaired it with a rubber band I had in my hair for safety of my kids. We were traveling with are dog. 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...

I normally don't care for Motel 6 locations with interior hallways as they tend to be noisy. But this location impressed me from the start. Very clean, very fresh smelling, quiet hallways, friendly employees, great business park area with limited but good choices for a quick meal. Wifi worked well (and is free for AARP members). My only issue was...

The rooms we had were on the opposite side from the interstate so they were quiet. The carpet was scary to walk on, combination of very old and dirty, or so old will not clean. The bedding was just as old, used my own sheet, blanket and pillow because of other reviews. Bathroom was surprisingly clean and I did like...

In an office building complex with about 4 other higher priced hotels. Great looking building from the outside, but the walls are paper thin, and if you get the north side of the building you are right along I-80. For the price it is a good place to crash for one night while traveling.

While a nice location, the handicapped room is a joke. Ours was on the second floor, furthest room from the elevator. They were thinking weren't they? Anyway, the bathroom was the problem. Sink hung from wall, caulk was about only thing holding it and it was cracked (whatever you do, don't lean on it) no vanity to place anything on,...

If you are traveling east or west on I-80 and wish to spend the night in the Des Moines, IA area, I recommend Motel 6 Des Moines West. This location is well maintained and clean. The staff are hospitable and helpful. The rates are economical and the facility is right at the freeway so, it's convenient to get to and...

We booked on the web and got a fantastic rate and were able to request a "quiet room" which was held for us even though we checked in late. The gal at the front desk was efficient, friendly and mentioned the rooms were due for a complete update which is clearly needed. But none-the-less, we had a quiet rest, the...

Clean, cost effective room in a good part of town. Bed is so so. Ask for a double room, they are on the opposite side of the interstate an much quieter. Food is close by. Nice place to stay on the west side of town.
