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

The property is located right off I-80 and I-35 and is very convenient. Our rooms were clean and comfortable. The front desk staff was very friendly and we did not have to pay for WI-FI. Lots of choice of TV Channels and parking was ample. Would definately stay again when back in town.

Holmes on Homes could have a field day with the way the upgrades were done at this Motel 6. Having stayed at a "modern" Motel 6 that was exceptional previously, we had the idea that ethic might carry through to others. We were wrong. Yes they have performed the upgrades, but neglected to change out the mattresses, the flooring does... More

On our way to Ohio from CA we had to stay in a few hotels, this Motel6 was the dirtiest! The service at the front office was amazing, however, the shady location and lack of cleanliness overshadowed our stay. I didn't necessarily have high expectations but when your "clean" room towels have yellow stains and other peoples hairs you question... More

This is a Motel 6. It is not a destination resort. It is a place to catch some sleep before continuing your journey. Check in was quick and easy, the bed satisfactory, the shower hot. There were more channels on the tv than a supposed five-star property at which I recently stayed. I had a good sleep and was on... More

The last time I stayed at the hotel during the fair, the place was not up to date. The new owners did a very good job with renovating the place. The property is clean and well maintained. Front desk staffs are awesome. The manager is friendly and helpful.

Istay 300+ nights in hotels. This is a remodeled Motel 6, so everything was fresh and clean. The lady at the front desk checked me in quickly and was cheerful. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Overall a great place to stay.
