The rooms were nasty to start with...smelled... 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

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
