From the Amazing two ladies who checked us in early with suggestions for places to eat to the spotless rooms and quality breakfast I don't know what else anyone could ask for when looking for a quick night stay while in town to see a show. Left our vehicle in the parking lot and walked to the civic center. Very... More

This hotel is older, but they make the best of what they have. Beds and pillows are pretty comfortable and the service is not bad. They offer breakfast in the AM and have a workout room and indoor pool. Irbid also located right off the highway in the center of downtown.

If you're attending an event at Wells Fargo or the old Vets Auditorium and you need a cheap/affordable place to stay, you can't beat this location. Aside from that, the Quality Inn doesn't have much else going for it. The beds aren't very comfortable and the decor is a throwback to the 1970s. But again, you won't choose this hotel... More

Hotel is easy walking distance from the Iowa Event Center (Wells Fargo Arena) and a short drive to downtown Des Moines. Room was very clean. This will be where we stay whenever we have plans in the area from now.

Great hotel for exploring downtown Des Moines. Very close to the hockey arena with great views of the river. Front desk staff is very helpful. Ashley had great recommendations for restaurants in the area.

If you're in town for a conference you are likely going to the events center. This hotel is as close as you can get to the events center. 3 minute walk, door to door. The hotel is recently remodeled. The rooms have plenty of space, and are very clean. The bar and grill on the second floor serves great food... More

Late check in staff was great. Retrieved items and made good local recommends. Lodge decor nice ambience. We had king suite which was very spacious four room and large bathroom. Was clean and neat. Minor issues were two lights burned out in bathroom. Vent in bathroom but obviously no fan. Two boxes of Kleenex but only one tissue in either... More

Well maintained hotel. Very QUIET. Very CLEAN:-well lit! Staff very accomodating. The POOL is VERY big and is a "walkers pool" ranging from 2 to 4 feet in depth. It is well used--kids and parents and 'oldsters' like us! There is no hot tub. The Governors LODGE Bar serves Great FOOD and is VERY economical. Internet in room--yeah! Loved the... More

My stay at this Quality Inn was good overall. Stayed here because it was the host hotel for an event; and definitely see myself coming back in the future. The hotel serves a complimentary breakfast. They had a little trouble keeping up with the crowd, but everything tasted great and provided a lot of options. They also have a restaurant... More

While the staff was very friendly and enjoyable, this hotel is in serious need of help. My room on the 3rd floor was VERY musty. It was hard to be in there. The bathroom was clean and the bed seemed fine, but the smell was nearly unbearable. I was too tired to ask for something new and honestly felt like... More
