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

Stayed there during the busy state wrestling weekend. Was lucky to get a room booking months in advance. Proximity to fairgrounds was noteworthy although that wasn't our destination. Check in was smooth and the rep was polite. Room was clean and a bit more than I expected for this price. Nothing fancy but it was comfortable and the LCD tv... More

We stayed on Nov. 23, 2013, a Saturday night. It was very clean and the staff was extremely helpful when I thought I had left something behind. They called me at home to say they had looked for it but could not find it. I later found it had fallen out of the car in our garage when we returned... More

My five star rating takes into consideration the class of hotel certainly. But, for a very affordable economy hotel this one ranks towards the top. When you are just looking for a clean room, warm bed, and hot shower at a value in Des Moines, this is the place to stay. Staff is friendly....and location is convenient.

Our two day stay at the Econolodge in Des Moines was very comfortable. The room was clean and furnishings were updated. The staff was exceptionally friendly. The hotel is dog friendly as well, and they were happy to welcome our furry friend. The staff let us play games in the lobby with our friends and dog, and baked cookies in... More

The location is great. It is literally across the street from the Iowa State Fairgrounds. It has a pool, which is nice for the kids and a free continental breakfast. We were there for a horse show and this hotel was very adequate for that. If you are looking for a nice family vacation get-away, I would not choose this... More

This property is across the street from the State Fairgrounds - where I was attending an event. This is a pain and simple motel type lodging. I found the room and facility clean and neat with friendly staff. The breakfast leaves a LOT to be desired. Anything more than juice and coffee was poor quality. There are some eateries within...

We had 2 suites for 1 night for a wedding we were attending at the fairgrounds which were located directly across the street. The rooms were clean, spacious, and well worth the price paid. I was happy with the service and it included continental "hot" breakfast which was great.

Paid 200.00 for a room I was told I never had. I made a reservation 1 year in advance and they made me put my reservation in seperate names. Who does that? Then when I called 10 months later they told me I only had one room only to find out after the first night of our stay that I... More

I'm sorry that you feel it necessary to post this kind of review. when the problem was that YOU made two reservations in two seperate names and paid for the two rooms and then YOU forgot. At which time you wanted us to take responsiblility for your not checking into the second room. You felt like we should have told... More

I'm in Des Moines twice per month for work and I stayed here on July 29th. It is on a busy road however my room was 3rd floor rear and I never heard a thing. The hotel is a good value for the money.
