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.

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.
