We were late arriving (after midnite due to delays) and had some difficulty locating the Motel 6. You have to drive THROUGH the Comfort Inn's parking lot to get to Motel 6 -- that's the only access. The room was freshly refurbished - new paint and fixtures, new shower, new "fake wood" flooring. The room was clean, but there was... More

Our room was clean and quiet. The room rate was very reasonable and the room was very simple meaning there were not many amenities. I was told that amenities were available at the front desk upon request and that was the policy for all the Motel 6.

The bedding was not clean when we were there, and it was a rather uncomfortable night. No bathtub, just a shower, and there was mold on the ceiling in the bathroom. Probably the smallest room I have ever been in, too.

The hotel has a great location and has easy access from and to the Highway 80 and 35. Recently they have updated all their non smoking rooms with a different color scheme and replaced all the bedding and the window treatment. I like the new landscaping that is being done and the staff was very friendly. Would definately recommend this... More

This was the only hotel close to the airport and under $50 a night. It's very basic but it was clean. If you're looking for a five star hotel this is not it but if you a place to sleep and a great shower in the morning this is the perfect place.

Let me know when you pull your name off this hell hole. The only bright spot of the entire property was the sign proclaiming this was your motel. Believe me, it is nothing to brag about. Please give the hardworking guy who wanted to also cower behind the bullet proof glass you provided but was kind enough to come out... More

Me and a couple of friends had one of the joined rooms and from the moment we pulled up it was questionable. It is located in a "run down" neighborhood. The room it's self was very unpleasant. When we walked in the room had a dirty foot odor to it and the towels were stained as well as the bedding.there... More

If you're looking for a cheap solution, this is definitely the one. 10 min from downtown Des Moines, and with all the traffic just outside the window. The keywords are clean & cheap. No breakfast, and that's a shame. 69 $ in weekends for a double

Very easy access to the highway. Lots of restaurants and a big mall within 5 miles of the hotel. Got Great Directions to the Thai Restaurant and loved it. Person at the front desk was very friendly and had a great sense of humor. It is not a luxurious hotel but you get what you pay for. The room was... More
