Nice stay in an ecomony hotel. Recently remodeled. Everything was as to be expected. Simple breakfast. Small bathrooms. Pool with a hot tub. Easy access on and off I-35. They have suites that have an extra door that opens to the pool area...very nice.

Pros: Clean; very comfortable; affordable; friendly. Cons: Squeaky floors & paper thin walls - heard conversations all around and every footstep above & around me; shower only, no tub - reminded me of the cramped showers on a cruise; pocket door to tiny bathroom squeaked every time it moved; light for the bathroom was on the far wall, so you...

This was my first stay at a "Choice Hotel" (the chain). It is very new looking, inside and out (front desk told me it was recently remodeled). Room is clean, neat, functional. Kind of a different layout, but just fine. I like the price/value enough I will be looking for other "Choice Hotels" in the future. I must add: the... More

Very nice rooms. Great landscaping. Very clean. And it's next to the Iowa Machine Shed, the # 1 restaurant in the area.

Nice large, clean room. We were right by the pool but we heard no noise at all - nice & quiet. We slept comfortably. Breakfast was fine. Overall, our major "hotel needs" were met. However, we did miss the little niceities that we have come to expect from a $100.++ per night hotel room, i.e., shamoo, thicker towels, lap desk... More

This is a nice motel located with easy access to the interstate. The room was clean, comfortable and provided everything a person needs for an overnight stay. Breakfast was typical for this chain with hot and cold items. Rooms were quite. Would definitely stay at this motel again if I was passing through or staying in the Des Moines area.

We had a great night's sleep at the Sleep Inn in Des Moines, Iowa. The hotel felt new and was very clean and comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was much appreciated, too. The hotel is located right beside the Iowa Machine Shop, a bizarrely named restaurant that serves gigantic portions of amazing pork dishes and homemade pies! The hotel is also... More

This was a nice hotel. We had stayed here before. Room was clean. Person at desk was friendly. The breakfast left a little but to be desired but we also got there near the end.

My mates and I stayed here for almost two weeks in January 2011. We travelled from Australia and found the staff to be super friendly and willing to look after us! Clean rooms, great location, and a fantastic experience overall...
