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

Our 3 day stay at the 1900 Inn was such a memorable time during our "grade school" girlfriend reunion. We are 1968 graduates from St. Joseph's Academy in Des Moines and came from Mpls., San Diego, and Little Rock. Jane and Tim (owners/innkeepers) made us feel right at home in their warm and welcoming environment. Jane is so gracious and... More

On a recent road trip through the Midwest, my husband and I stayed a night at The 1900 Inn in DesMoines. We were greeted on arrival by Tim, who showed us to our room, gave us information on breakfast as well as recommendations for dinner. We stayed in the Master Suite. The room was tastefully decorated, bringing in touches of... More

We stayed three nights with Jane and Tim. We feel like they were long lost friends by the time we left. I have stayed at many B&Bs with my husband but this was my favorite. Everything was perfect. They were wonderful hosts - there when you needed them but they gave you your privacy as well. Breakfast was amazing -... More

This couple was the best! They made us feel special as their hosts. Very respectful to our time and our space. We appreciate that so much. As we've stated before, being a good guest is a huge part of having a good stay. More

We were greeted by the lady of the house. She was very gracious. We were allowed to check in early and then continue our excursions around town. The room and bath was very spacious and clean. The WiFi worked very well. The breakfast was very good. The butterscotch and apple scones were scrumptious. The hostess visited with us during breakfast.... More

My wife and I arrived for a five night stay with Jane and Tim at the well restored and comfortable Bed and Breakfast in a wonderful neighborhood location. Though the home is restored to a 1900 vintage, the rooms (we chose the Master Suite), are well furnished in the period decor while providing modern bathrooms and excellent internet service in...

If you have a need to travel to Des Moines, the 1900 Inn is a wonderful alternative to the overpriced hotels in the area. Tim & Jane sure know how to pamper their guests. From the big things (comfy bed, wonderful breakfast, fluffy towels, crisp sheets, coffee and/or tea brought to room an hour before breakfast, friendly) to the little... More

My partner and I spent three nights at The 1900 Inn in early August. The home is beautiful, and the accommodations outstanding. Jane and Tim made us feel very comfortable and "at home." The location could not be better, with easy access to restaurants and downtown attractions. The bed was amazingly comfortable, and we could not have had a better... More

After much frustration of trying to book a relatively decent hotel without exorbitant prices, I decided to venture out and try something new! Luckily, I landed on The 1900 Inn's website and thought why not try a bed and breakfast! I am so glad I did! Tim and Jane were so accommodating as my schedule working fair was a little... More
