Our room was very clean and comfortable. The location was close to DesMoines--which was our destination, without all the traffic. The lobby also clean and inviting along with the breakfast area. Arrived later in evening and left early in morning so didn't have a lot of interaction with staff--but staff was friendly. No complaints at all and will most likely... More

We use Americinn as our motel of choice. Last night was no different. The night before we went cheap, and got exactly what we paid for. Towels galore, bed linens and bed very very nice. All the amenities you could want or use. Clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. No complaints. I can recommend this stay without reservation.

This was my first experience with AmericInn and I was surprised that it was so well maintained. The breakfast area was spotless and kept very clean, the pool area was clean and well maintained. There was a birthday party in the pool area in the afternoon and by the time we returned just before 8 pm, you would have never... More

Overall experience good. Some smell of smoke in the hallway, smoking rooms are available. The room itself had no smoke orders. Quiet, comfortable, fresh smelling, relaxing and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast had plenty to choose from with hot food, good coffee and a variety of tea selections. Easy access to several restaurants and businesses.

this is a very nice hotel to stay at for the price. You are right interstate access. Depending on the weather if you so chose you are very close to a number of restaurants but even driving distance very easy access to a little shopping eating entertainment venues. I've stayed here 4 times and never had a bad experience.

Very clean, very professional and courteous. The staff is always more than willing to help out and make changes in my reservations when my work schedule changes. I would recommend anyone to stay here.

very clean, staff friendly. Breakfast food were good. Did not use the pool, but that area appeared to be clean as well. Coffee maker pot was not the correct one for the maker in the room. Hole in drywall above shower head and also hole in the french door curtain.
