I recently stayed here from out of state just because it was across from the State Fairgrounds and I was able to get a last minute reservation. The location is great for activities at the fairgrounds. Other than that, it is a typical economy hotel. Our room and the hallways were clean and not dark. The only noise we heard... More

We stayed at this hotel during the Iowa State Fair. We came to Des Moines to go to the fair so it was a convenient walk across the street to get there, but beware, it is LOUD in the room from the noise across the street. That is not the hotel's fault though and my dislike of this hotel is... More

While checking in I had to try and talk over the TV, next to the check in counter, blaring Fox News with some pundit bashing liberals, which I am one. Oh well. The room was tiny but clean. The bed was comfy but the shower was a little weak. As we were leaving we saw that at some point during... More

Room had been used before we checked in and they didn't seem to care. We found them on a list of pet friendly hotels an I didn't expect much from a economy hotel that allows pets but the reviews said it was new and clean. It might be new but you couldn't tell. Rooms were small with outdated fixtures. Shower... More

My daughter was in an acrobatic competition in Des Moines and the price for this Econo Lodge was great & less expensive than the hotels closest to the venue. The location by the fairgrounds was good with easy access to the entire area. The hotel had a breakfast each morning & fresh baked cookies in the evening. The indoor pool... More

Effort shows here. We drove slightly out of our way to stay at this property because it received high reviews for cleanliness. While it is not the cleanest hotel I’ve ever seen, it was cleaner than the average hotel and cleaner than the Renaissance Savery a few miles away. Their efforts do not stop at cleanliness. If you eat “free... More

We decided to visit Adventureland for our short family vacation. We wanted something just a little bit away from the amusement park but just close enough. We picked the EconoLodge at the Fairgrounds because mainly the price. We wasn't really expecting alot, come on it's an EnconoLodge right? We were pleasantly surprised. When we first arrived we was greeted by... More

We stayed for 1 night in a 1 room suite, and would agree with the recent great reviews. Clean and comfortable room, great bed and A/C, neat and spotless grounds, nice continental breakfast. We were traveling with a dog and were made to feel welcome. This hotel is much nicer than we expected from an economy chain and we would... More

We stayed at the Econo Lodge Fairgrounds Hotel in Des Moines and I expected an average place, but was pleasantly surprised to find a much nicer place than I expected. Great breakfast, great rooms, and is is all pretty new. The only downside was the small parking lot which gets overfilled when they are near occupancy. But there is on... More
