I was in Des Moines for business, and this hotel was perfectly fit-for-purpose, exceeding my expectations. 1. The hotel shuttle took me to and from my client site, saving me from having to find and pay for a taxi. 2. Every staff member was extremely friendly. I don't know if this is an Iowa thing, or just a Fairfield Inn... More

During a recent trip I stayed at a Fairfield Inn & Suites in Omaha and then drove to Des Moines and stayed at this property the very next night. I thought this particular location was just "OK". I booked a standard room, which was very clean and relatively roomy. The hotel is literally less than a 5 minute drive to... More

Good, clean (I'm a neat freak). Decent free breakfast. Only complaint is... I can see the room doesn't have a lot of extra space, but the coffee maker can't be in the same room that guests poop in! Sorry, just not sanitary. I was 3 feet from the coffee maker while I was going to the bathroom. .. do you... More

While I've flown-out of other properties in this area (very near airport), this was my first stay here. I will be back, flight-related or otherwise. The rates are reasonable, but for a hotel that must be near six or seven years old, it is still like-new, a credit to staff. I had a single-king, and it was clean, spacious, VERY... More

I have never gone wrong when choosing a Fairfield Inn for lodging and the Des Moines Airport was no exception. It was extremely clean, well appointed and the staff friendly and very accommodating. It is very convenient to the Des Moines Airport. There does seem to be a lack of restaurant selections in the area would be my biggest complaint.

Very clean, well-kept property in a convenient location. The lobby area is welcoming and warm, and although we didn't eat breakfast at the hotel, we did check it out - typical economy hotel breakfast - waffles, cereal, pre-packaged muffins, etc. Our room was extremely clean and the wi-fi was adequate. But keep in mind it's a Fairfield Inn, so the... More

I stay here at least one time per month. Staff is friendly, rooms are clean. Even though you're by the airport I've never noticed any jet noise. Fairfield's can be kind of hit and miss depending on when they were built or remodeled. This one has been recently updated and all the rooms are nice.

I often stay here when I arrive to or leave from the Des Moines Airport. The price can't be beat. The rooms are impeccable and the staff is very accommodating. One of the best breakfasts you can have that is included in the room price. The airport shuttle staff is also prompt and friendly.

We had 3 rooms for extended family members that were from out-of-town for the wedding of our nephew. I was very pleasantly surprised at how nice this hotel is, and is literally a 5 minute drive to the airport. From the top down and bottom up, this hotel was great. The staff, regardless of their job duties, were ALL wonderful.... More

Stayed here overnight on my way out of town...clean, well kept and an excellent example of what the Fairfield Inn and Suites should be achieving with most of their sites. Not to mention close enough to the airport to be convenient but not too close that all you hear are airplanes. The staff was friendly and efficient on arrival, the... More
