I have stayed on this property a number of times. It is a basic no thrills hotel. No free breakfast, no shampoo and old tube style TV. The rooms are clean, the front desk people are very friendly and you cannot beat the location.

We called ahead and made a reservation as weather was bad and we decided to not drive through the evening. Because we reserved after check-in it was explained we cannot cancel our reservation. Upon check-in there were people smoking out front where you have to enter and the whole area smells of mirijuana. Our room carpet is filthy and the... More

Overall comments: great for a cheap & safe night of sleep while traveling for work. Wouldn't be my first pick if I were traveling with kids or teens though. Price: $41 plus tax. Great value for this area! Building: a recent, multi-floor modern structure w single secure access and elevator. Property is in good repair, safe location, beside Marriott and... More

We spent a short night here on the last night of an extended road trip. As it was late and we were leaving early we chose to stop at a discount hotel. What a bargain! The place was VERY clean and nice. We had a 3rd floor room and had awesome water pressure. Knowing that Motel 6 is a pet... More

I stay in hotels 300 + nights yearly. This hotel is one of my favorites. The checkin was fast and efficient. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Overall, a great place to stay. Large vehicle parking is limited.

We needed a place to sleep for just the night while passing through IA on a roadtrip. I was surprised to find Des Moines hotels were so expensive! We chose the Motel 6 because is was cheap and near the freeway. The front desk lady was very kind. We had a room on the second floor. After exiting the elevator... More

Spent the night here for our last night out on a nearly 4 week trip to Alaska. What a clean, nice, big room we had with a queen bed. The TV was the old style, but worked fine. The bathroom was also large and spotless. A big vanity and decent mirror, new tub/shower combo and plenty of plugs to charge... More

Two of my coworkers and I stayed at this motel for one night. We had three separate rooms and they were all filthy. There was every kind of bodily fluid imaginable on the mattresses, carpet, doors, etc. Stains on everything! I am posting pictures of the mattresses in my room, there were multiple big brown spots (some bigger than a... More

We stayed here for 2 nights during the State Fair. We had our animals with us and the hotel is amazing for its green space and even provides bags for poo. The rooms are tiny. Even with double beds we were falling over each other. The tvs are the old tube style and the air even though at 50 didn't... More
