My wife and I stayed at this hotel for a few nights while we were in Des Moines for a wedding. We had stayed in various AmericInn hotels in the past and were looking forward to it. We arrived late on our first night to find that the room was not cleaned very well. The computer desk had not been... More

Very clean rooms! Comfortable beds and friendly staff! Pool was just right! This was our 1st hotel stay in 10 years, a first for 3 of our 4 kids. They loved the adventure! We chose the Grimes location because of its proximity of where we were going to be, the pool, and based on other reviewers comments. Ben at the... More

My son and his family recently moved to the Des Moines area and we stayed at AmericInn in Grimes. It was a great experience as the rooms were very clean and comfortable and the staff was great! I hope to visit often and we will always choose to stay at AmericInn!

Lots of extras...pool, whirlpool, sauna, great breakfast, clean rooms and property, and very close to a lot of fun things to do in Des Moines. Its also right next to a grocery store for convenient snacks and beverages. They in-house bar is reasonable and well-stocked.

I stayed here recently for two nights for business travel. I was very pleased at the friendliness of the staff, and the cleanliness of the hotel. I would caution you that this location does not have an elevator, so if that is a must have for you you will need to look else where.

The room overall was pretty clean but the carpet wasn't vacuumed very good especially under the computer table and chair. Walked on the carpet with my white socks before I went to bed and had several clinging debris that I brought into bed. But for the money it was a good deal.

Best motel/hotel beds! Comfortable mattress and comforter. Staff had porta-crib in our room before we arrived. All of the staff was friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast had a very good variety of choices. We were pleasantly surprised to see real eggs and bacon! We nearly always stay here when we visit family in Des Moines.

While the staff was friendly, we were not impressed with the quality of our room at all. The window was open in our room when we arrived with the AC on full blast, but we soon found out that the AC was a joke and we were in for a warm evening/morning. As far as cleanliness goes - I found... More

We have stayed at this motel several times and have always been satisfied. It seems a little over priced for the area but otherwise we had no complaints. The room was clean and the breakfast offered was typical for this price range. The breakfast area was kept clean and the orange juice was better than we have had before. It... More

Clean hotel. Only 2 floors, no elevator. Towels run out quick in the pool area and there are only 3 tables in there. There should be at least 2 more when you have a couple families using it. Otherwise everything was clean and in working order. Ben at the front desk was alone, but tackled everything with professionalism and speed.
