Dear Choice hotels, I have to say that I have been very disappointment by the customer service that I received recently at Econo Lodge Iowa State Fair. I made my reservation on July 10th for an upcoming reservation for this weekend Friday Aug 21st and Aug 22nd via phone. At that time the customer service rep said that the hotel... More

This hotel is the only hotel near the Iowa State Fairgrounds so there is no way to beat the location. However, it is a very basic hotel. Rooms are very small. Price is $110 unless it is during the State Fair when it goes up to $210 per night. This is not a hotel worth $200+. Rooms are very small,... More

I stayed at this hotel on Aug 6th which was a Thursday night and my rate was $110! This is a very basic hotel. It has a pool and they serve a complimentary breakfast which I skipped. I did noticed there was only about 5 tables set up in the lobby for breakfast so I think that it could have... More

We moved to this hotel after checking into a days inn that was filthy and scary. This hotel was a breath of fresh air. It was clean, the pool was nice. I have stayed at many hotels where I can hear neighbors, here we did not hear a peep. It was great. The king suite was roomy. The only complaint... More

This was a nice hotel near restaurants and shopping. Comfortable room, pet friendly and pleasant employee's. Comparable prices, clean room a little narrow near the bathroom but overall would stay here again.

I have stayed in this hotel in the past, and found it to be nice, although somewhat overpriced. I made a reservation to stay there again during the state fair. Really overpriced, but location is everything, right? Now, I have to admit, I haven't stayed there for this reservation yet, but I already had a bad experience, and it will... More

First time to stay here and was impressed. Front desk very friendly, housekeepers always spoke or smiled when you passed them, room very clean and updated, reasonably priced. Breakfast was okay. Not much seating area. Safe in room and charged nominal fee but so nice to leave money/valuables in it didn't mind paying extra. Bed comfortable but pillows were too... More

Traveled to Des Moines for a trade show in Downtown Des Moines but wanted a decent hotel. The staff was great, super friendly. The room was a little small but very clean and safe. The breakfast was average but the bed was comfortable.
