Overall a nice budget hotel. I'd place this hotel some where between a Super 8 and a Hampton Inn for quality. The room was large and very clean. The furniture was in overall good condition. The bath towels were a bit thin, not worn, just not high quality. The room was quite and you didn't hear much noise from the... More

They had a lounge that stayed open til 2am and served pizza til then. The pool and spa stayed open till midnight with the... More

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

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
