After staying here my group and I was accused of smoking in a room even though I am 200% confident nobody did. The claimed they found cigarette butts in our room after I specifically inspected each room we stayed in and made sure they were in the same condition as when we came. The rooms were nasty to start with...smelled... More

Mold in the refrigerator and shower. Shower was dirt stained. Loud and stinky heater. Pillows hard as rocks. Arms kept going to sleep, but we didn't. Towels hard and scratchy. Rm for 4 adults cost $90.00 so it wasn't even cheap rates. We had secured with credit card and and came in late at night, so we decided to make... More

Nicer than I thought this place would be. The rooms were nothing special, but were clean and met my expectations. The breakfast offered even included some hot items (sausage, biscuits/gravy, etc.). Rooms appear to be somewhat remodeled not too long ago. Be careful if you enter the hotel from the room doors (upstairs) facing the parking lot. There is a... More

I stayed in Des Moines for my little sisters highschool graduation in May 2010. I asked for a rollaway bed and to my surprise I had to carry it up to my room! My hotel room was what was expected. It was dirty but cheap. The guy working the front desk on Sunday was rude, disrespectful and I asked him... More

I have stayed at this hotel before and no problems. But came to town for my birthday and the room they gave us was horrible. The paint in the room was peeling, the outside door had a 2 inch gap at the floor, the air conditioning did not work(when I called to complain they gave me a fan) and the... More

We came to Des Moines for our vacation. We chose the Rodeway Inn because the room rate was very reasonable, and there were lots of ammenties. Things that were advertised as ammenties but were not included were: no complimentary breakfast, no in-room coffee maker and no high speed internet connection. There were both a small refrigerator and microwave, but the... More
