This is our second time staying at this hotel. It's a short stay for us as it's on the way to a family reunion. This place is reasonably priced, near enough restaurants that we can get a quick bite, and always quiet, regardless of the number of guests. The staff is very courteous and helpful.

I don't give five stars very easily ... but from the time I arrived after midnight and someone walked out to the cab to greet me and immediately had things ready for my room, to the morning's breakfast experience, and pleasant shuttle driver, I was impressed. I have stayed at many full service Marriotts previously (including one tonight) and have... More

My wife and I stayed here before flying for a vacation. We took advantage of the park stay and fly offer. We arrived late in the evening and the check in assistant was very friendly and made sure to cover all the details for our stay. Specifically make sure we were signed up for the shuttle in the morning for... More

I stopped by this hotel to visit my parents. I live in Colorado and them I'm Iowa. I brought my dog with me and the night worker was very rude. Told me I had to keep my dog in the car! I informed her that I would only be here for a couple of hours as I was waiting for... More

My normal hotel for Des Moines business trips was not available so choose this one. I've become more comfortable staying in the airport area for whatever reason. You can hear planes, but they're not too bad. Otherwise, the noise at this hotel is fairly quiet. "High speed internet" isn't so high speed. Yes, you'll get anywhere from 4-8 mbps download... More

This Fairfield Inn is near the Des Moines Airport. They provide a free shuttle to the airport. The breakfast is good. They also provide free drink tickets to Johnny's Restaurant, which is located next door. The food at the restaurant is good, and the drinks are excellent. This hotel is located adjacent to the Doubletree Inn.

The hotel sits at the south end of the airport. There aren’t many restaurants nearby so be prepared to eat before you arrive of drive back into town. The lobby was warm and inviting. The feather pillows were firmer than I am accustomed to at Fairfield Inns but not bad. The bed slept well and I had no complaints. The... More

This property is located within a half mile of the Des Moines airport which makes it very convenient. The hotel was very clean and the staff were helpful. The room was comfortable and the shower was invigorating which was helpful in the morning. The breakfast is typical of Fairfield properties which is good, but nothing to rave about. Johnny's Italian... More
