  • Couple

    No elevators, no double rooms on the 1st floor. Only access to 2nd floor is via rusty staircase outside. No security at all. All outside doors accessible to public without keycard.

  • Single

    the room was pretty clean, unlike the halls and pool area.

    the complimentary breakfast was pretty bad, mostly breads, no fruit, only hard boiled eggs that were slightly green. the hotel is very outdated, but it is hard to find a place to stay for less than $60 anymore. is it worth it? in my opinion, no. My family and I used to manage a hotel and I would say the stay was worth $30. that would be a fair price for what you get. the room was poorly lit. I don't watch t.v., but if you do, they are old school.

  • Single

    room was nice...price fair

    having to walk through laundry room to get upstairs...milk bottle and condom left in room and toilet !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Older travelers

    I was truly plesantly surprised. The bed was comfortable. I think that the shower handle could be worked over but it was set at a comfortable temperature for me and so I liked it. I want a stool like the one that was in the bathroom. I was especially surprised that I got such a nice room for the rate that I got it at. And I did appreciate the breakfast that was provided.

    I could not unerstand why some of the channels on the tv set were not working but -- I did not come to this motel to watch tv so I really have no complaints about this.

  • Couple

    There is only one thing wrong about ,y stay there, went to go make some coffee, the coffee was very very old! Coffee machine was broken. And in my opinion I would never leave water in the coffee machine. We do not know if it stays in there everyday or the cleaning crew dumps it and gets new water. Other than that I really liked staying there. PS.. its room 233

  • Couple

    This was a great place to stay, fantastic.

    there was a clump of unidentified hair in the toilet on first arrival.

  • Group of friends

    The staff were all friendly and helpful, and the room was clean and comfortable. We were in Des Moines for one night and needed something affordable and close to the city. It was perfect! Definitely met our needs.

  • Older travelers

    Located near our appt. Located off of I 80. Near gas station and other palces to eat. Friendly and good breakfast. Room was great

    2:30 am people out side in the entrance to come in talking could here it in the bathroom and bed area. Rm 141

  • Older travelers

    Close to my doll show have stayed before and very happy with everything.

  • Family with children

    The first room they gave us hadn't been cleaned, they gave us another room and when we went and opened that up, it was occupied. Finally on the 3rd try we got a clean, unoccupied room . Clean is actually putting it nicely. The sheets and pillow cases were stained, the cushion on the chair was filthy , the towel in the bathroom had what looked like small blood drop stains, the floor was filthy, the air conditioner barely worked, and the walls were paper thin. Gross . Will not be back.

  • Group of friends

    room was cold when we walked in

    room was not ready by the said time.

  • Group of friends

    The beds were very comfortable!

    Website says smoking rooms but they are all non smoking. Also booked a king bed but they ran out.

  • Single

    It is just outside of downtown Des Moines, but has easy access to the highway so you can get anywhere in minutes.

    The bathroom had obvious dirt and grim under the sink, and even though it was supposed to be a non-smoking room the room smelled strongly of cigarette smoke.

  • Family with children

    Had a late checking and staff was still very friendly. Breakfast was good.

    Matress wasn't the best but was extremely tired so it worked.

  • Older travelers

    good room for the price paid

    breakfast is somewhat minimal with little fruit (apple only) and no pastries...only toast and plain muffin
