Our room (2 queen beds) was excellent, spacious, and reasonably priced. Hotel is away from downtown, but easy to reach and close to airport for travelers. We can't say enough about the excellent service by the staff. Highly recommend!

I stayed at the Fairfield DSM Airport in July while in town for business. What a great hotel. The staff was beyond friendly and accommodating; they simply could not have been more helpful. The rooms are very large with great workspace and lots of decent light. The desk chair is adjustable and allows for comfortable work on a laptop while... More

Stayed here on our last night in Iowa on a family visit. Great location to the airport, for an early morning flight. Made reservations over the phone two days ago. Front desk was very helpful and booked our room. Upon arrival, 8:00 pm , all paper work, including our room keys were ready for us . Very easy check in,... More

The front desk woman was so nice! Check in was fast. She gave us drink vouchers to use at next door resturant or we could use in their market which is what we ended up doing. The room was clean, temperature was cool and beds were comfortable. The breakfast was plentiful. Overall great hotel for the price

Booked a room 2 weeks in advance. Received confirmation number. Arrived at hotel & they proceeded to tell me that their were no rooms left for the night. I said I had a confirmation number. They said, well we can accommodate you at another hotel in town. I didn't have any other option, so they sent me 4 blocks away... More

We are very sorry that we were unable to be able to have you stay for the evening that you had requested. We did not have as many people check-out in the morning as we were expecting. It is a very rare circumstance that we are unable to meet the needs of our arriving guests. We greatly appreciate your understanding... More

Only stayed for one night. The check-in staff was pleasant and offered us 2 free drinks at restaurant next door. The Italian steakhouse next door at Doubletree Hilton will even deliver to hotel. I booked a standard room, which was very clean. The room was little smaller than other Fairfield Inn's. I couldn't put the luggage rack out because there... More

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
