Stayed while attending a retreat/ workshop for three nights. Very clean room, comfortable. Asked for a room with easy access and was given a room just off the rear parking lot. It was close to the ice machine, but when in the room, did not hear any noise. The bed was firm but very comfortable. The room was on the... More

Not enough parking spaces made worse by poorly parked guests. Key card didnt work & had to return to desk. Very small pool & hot tub. As close to state fair as we could get for junk jubilee tomorrow. Loud noise from street below. Will try another place if we return to des moines

Of all the budget motels in the area, I noticed that this one had a pretty good rating overall. I read the reviews, booked a room and was very pleased with our stay. Yes, it's a budget motel but it was well worth the cost. We stayed Easter weekend and the front desk told me there were wrestling and boxing... More

I arrived relatively late in the evening and staff were efficient and competent as I checked in. The room was small, especially the bathroom, but nothing that one wouldn't expect from this type of chain motel. The room was notably dim, whether due to the small amount of lamps or type of bulb, I'm not sure. My wifi connection wasn't... More

This Econo Lodge was absolutely great. The staff was superb in every way. The bed and bedding was the quality you usually find in high end hotels. The room looked to have remodeled recently; carpet and bedding were new. No complaints at all. Breakfast was OK. Overall a great value for the money for a very nice night's stay.

We checked in very late at night. The staff were very friendly and had everything ready for our arrival. Our room was very clean and the beds were surprisingly comfortable! The continental breakfast was great, and included waffles. Check out was easy. We utilized the guest laundry while we were there, and the machines were clean and quick! I have... More

This is a nice hotel for a quick overnight stay. The room was clean and everything was ok for our needs. The breakfast was ok except the coffee wasn't very good in the breakfast area. The in room coffee was better.

We had a great room. Huge king size bed, sparkling clean white sheets, small couch. I had asked for a ground floor room and they had it waiting for me. It was a hot weekend and the A/C was nice and cold. Lots of people in the breakfast room in the morning and we had other breakfast plans so I... More
