Stopped in late one night during State Fair week for 2 rooms without a reservation. The clerk was nice, funny and professional. Both rooms were clean and nice. Bathrooms clean. Very nice room overall. Some reviewers were very negative so I was apprehensive, but it was for naught. I have nothing to complain about! Breakfast was adequate. Room price average.... More

Just a lay over on our way back home. Arrived late and left early in the morning. Slept well after a long day of driving. Breakfast was average and the room was clean. Side door for nice access to the parking lot.

Front desk Gentlemen personally upgraded my room to a suite, which was much nicer, and carried my luggage for me. The hallway was kind of dinghy & icemaker had mold in it.... More

Room 113 - The fan in the bathroom does not work at all and the air conditioner was VERY noisy. Each time it kicked on it made a horrible sound (not one, not twice, but 3 times). So every 1/2 hour all night long I was woke up by this noisy air conditioner. Beds and rooms were good and clean.... More

Have stayed here a couple of times. First time the room smelled musty, this last time was better but found long black hairs under the sink on the last day. Beds are very firm, no pillowtops. Nice for me, but my spouse likes a softer bed. Front desk staff were friendly, but the maid pounded on our door even with... More

We had to attend a meeting at the Event Center and the Quality Inn was in walking distance so we decided to stay there. We checked it out on TripAdvisor. We were not sure what to expect, but were pleasantly surprised. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The motel appears to have been recently up dated and is quite... More

When I checked in at the front desk there was a gentleman by the name of Chris. He was extremely friendly and caring He asked me if there was anything I needed before I went up to the room. It is the personal service that makes the difference. The room was clean and had a fresh smell. The indoor pool... More

The Quality Inn and Suites is on Fleur Drive across from the Des Moines airport. I prefer the Fairfield Inn down the street which costs the same, but was fully booked. This was better than I expected from a motel that went from a Comfort Inn down to a Quality Inn. Parking and check in were easy. The room was... More

Had a wonderful stay at the hotel. The staff was very friendly and the morning breakfast offered lots of choices. The pool was spotless and enjoyed the 42" TV in the room. The complimentary shuttle service to the airport was on schedule and the shuttle was neat and clean.
