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

We stayed for a park and fly and also for one night after a late return flight. This place is great for travel since it is close to the airport and has a shuttle. Prices are reasonable for the area and the place is newer, clean, tastefully decorated and you get a really good breakfast. The staff are very friendly... More

I love staying at Fairfields, as they are predictably clean, decently appointed, and seem to attract nice people. We stayed here 2 nights (a Friday/Saturday) for a family wedding, and it suited our needs perfectly. We travelled with a 2 year old - the breakfast buffet in the lobby was a nice feature, and meant that we could find food... More

I stayed here for 3 days due to a conference in the area. The hotel overall was clean & the front desk people were very friendly. I had a problem with my reservation, but it was quickly resolved. My room was fine although lacked a few things such as a fridge, microwave, plug-ins on the lamps for my computer/phone chargers,... More

Hotel is updated, nice and clean. Airport noise isn't bad. We received drink tickets for the restaurant next door, which was also very nice. I do wish that restaurant was in the hotel instead of next door though. No problems whatsoever, I would stay here again.
