Our week here was terrible. The worst thing was the employees and house keeping. They only came in our room once and did half the work. When I complained at the desk, I was offered cleaning supplies to do it myself. They never give enough towels or toilet paper, and give only one bar of soap. Never coming back here...

We stayed here over night as my husband was having surgery the next morning. The room was nice and clean, but there was no shampoo. When I asked about it, they said we could buy it from a machine downstairs. There was no hair dryer. No tissues. Just things that make a stay better. There was no clock, no microwave,...

Easy to get to from the highway. We checked in without a reservation. It was relatively inexpensive ($73), but too expensive for the comfort level and complete lack of amenities. No clock, no microwave, no fridge, no breakfast, no outlets near the beds, and only 1 luggage cart. The counter was not clean - like it hadn't been wiped. The...

I've stayed at this hotel many times over the years. The hotel is located close to the freeway and easy to get to. Yvonne and Lisa's checkin was fast and efficient. The building and grounds are well maintained and the lobby is bright and inviting. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Overall, a great place to stay.

This particular Motel 6 is one of my favorites to stay at when in the Des Moines area, rooms and building are clean and well maintained, staff is friendly and helpful. Along with reasonable rates and proximity to a variety of local points of interest and businesses it's worth it.

Stayed one night here on my way to Wyoming. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful. I was able to get a room on a Thursday night without a reservation. For a Motel 6, it is a very nice building and has a decent outdoor pool. I had my dog with me, which is no problem at a Motel 6...

This is our "go to" motel when we are in Des Moines for agility trials with our dogs. This past week-end we were on the 3rd floor because of our request for the micro-fridge to keep dog food. Little did we realize that come Sunday morning check out the elevator was being serviced! WOW, we ended up carrying luggage, boxes,...

Well, Motel 6 kept the light on for me and not much else. The room was okay, but that is about it. There was no hot water, slightly warm. One bar of soap, no shampoo, and bath towels were about the size of dish towels. No breakfast, only warm coffee with no lids for the cups.

I've never been in a hotel room that did not supply kleenex, shampoo or a hair dryer until today. This was the first and last time I will ever stay in a Motel 6. Horrible beds, bedding and towels. It took forever to get checked in. Made me want to check my credit card on line.
