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.

I've stayed at a few Econo Lodges and always found them to be clean and in order. Tonight's stay in Des Moines, IA is no exception. Check in was quick and the room is excellent as usual. Dolores and Janet at the check in desk helped make it more pleasant by their business like but friendly attitudes. Great Job Econo... More

Stayed here for two nights in two different rooms. The King Bed Suite was nice on the 2nd floor and the Bathroom had looked like it was recently redone. The Suite does not have a separate bedroom though. On my 2nd night I was put into a 1st floor Double Bed Suite with a separate bedroom. This was the room... More

Staying during the Iowa State Fair can get pretty pricey, but the convenience of walking across the street to the entrance gate on the main concourse, and leaving after a long day of entertainment is impossible to put a price on. Great room, nice pool/hot tub. Never heard a sound from other rooms. Planning next years stay.

A friend and I stayed there one night. The manager gave out a room key without asking for an id. The people that got the key ransacked our room and stole our jewelry and money. Our room was on the 2nd floor and the video camera does not work on the 2nd and 3rd floors. Enough said.

I am tempted to rate this more like a five-star hotel since for the money it far exceeded my expectations, especially in view of its location (very convenient to downtown and right across the street from the Iowa State Fairgrounds west entrance, but in a neighborhood that has seen better days). The staff went beyond the call of duty to... More

We were visiting Des Moines, Iowa for my son's graduation - and money was a little tight. But we still wanted a pleasant hotel stay. This hotel property was purchased 4 years ago, and they are still doing improvements. A little TLC is needed on the exterior, so when we pulled up, I was slightly worried about the hotel. However,...

We used Award rewards points from Choice Privileges to stay here after I flew into Des Moines after a long flight as it was an hour drive to where we were heading. An added plus was there was an event we were visiting at the fairgrounds exhibit hall and it was close enough for walking. We stayed on the 2nd... More
