We stayed here for my girlfriend's birthday while visiting from out of state. We had private parking which was nice; the neighborhood is definitely older but we never felt unsafe (as some have mentioned). Downtown was only minutes away so this was convenient for us. Breakfast was good; the owner even shared the scone recipe with us. Definitely worth the... More

My brother and sister and I occupied the B&B with family members for 4 nights and had a great time with Jane's good breakfasts, comfy rooms, and living room conversations and porch conversations. We recommend The 1900 Inn to all. We were reminded of our wonderful growing up in Des Moines. With many thanks to Tim and Jane............

I stayed here for two nights and loved it. Jane is very friendly and welcomed me warmly. The location is great, the room is very comfy and large bathroom (room 3). Her fresh breakfast was delicious. Of the five places I stayed on this trip, this was definitely the best!

Our stay at the 1900 Inn in Des Moines was fabulous! We rented two of the three rooms available and both were of top notch quality. Attention to detail is obvious everywhere with many thoughtful touches. Cleanliness is outstanding! The linen was top notch, the beds comfortable, and the entire inn was exquisite! Not to mention the breakfast which was... More

A very beautiful place to stay. The owners made us feel warm and friendly. The room was cozy and the bathroom was up to date and clean. The breakfast was excellent!

We were traveling across country and had booked this stop many months ago. We were excited to stay because it looked lovely. However, our expectations were FAR EXCEEDED as Jane and Tim were the most perfect hosts. The accommodations were superior (they upgraded us because we were only there one night), comfortable, beautiful, well-decorated, so, so clean and a sheer... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights at the 1900 Inn and it was a delight! It is a beautiful home with gracious innkeepers. The home and its decor is just right, not cluttered but elegant. The King Suite is spotless, roomy and comfortable. The breakfasts were original, made with fresh ingredients and even better, we got to visit... More

Des Moines was our first stop on a 2-week trip from Wisconsin to Colorado. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful B&B, completely restored and updated. We stayed in the upstairs Master Suite, a spacious room with adjoining bath that included a jet tub and double sinks. Bed and chairs were comfortable and the residential area is quiet. Tim... More

My three college roommates and I just had a wonderful weekend at The 1900 Inn. Jane greeted each of us and showed us to our lovely rooms. Each is cozy and welcoming with mints on the bedside table. There was a small area with a refrigerator for our wine and cheeses as well as table and glassware. The library was... More

My husband and I recently visited Des Moines for a little getaway. I saw that the 1900 Inn was near the Hoyt Sherman Auditorium and decided to stay there. My husband was a little nervous as he had never stayed at a bed and breakfast before. However, after our two nights, he can't wait to return. From the moment we... More
