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

Housing prostitutes is the least of the problems here. Along with the substandard service from the front desk( who was informed of the situation) was unwilling to help me make sure my only ride to the airport, who was on location(at the hotel), The one person who would take me to the airport to make a flight home to see...

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

The stark lighting, fifties fixtures and cold vinyl tile flooring caused me to wonder if I had fallen into a film noir flick. The price was cheap. But, on another trip I stayed at an Airbnb in Des Moines. for less and it was clean, bright, homey and hosted by a lovely woman. Uh-oh.

For whatever reason, West Des Moines is home to rather pricey motels. This Motel 6 seemed the most reasonable of the lot and, based on other's reviews, we booked a room for one night. The room was clean but very small - Microtel size, in fact - and the furnishings were basic. No easy chair or lamps - just a... More

We stopped here after a long day in the car, left Estes Park, CO that morning on our way home. We were tired and ready for bed and found ourselves in Des Moines, IA without reservations. This hotel is located in what I would call a business exit. There were several hotels to choose from at this stop. We pulled... More

This was a very nice Motel 6. Very clean and a bit larger than the average Motel 6 room. Those staying at a Motel 6 need to understand the price does not buy you a hair dryer, kleenex, HD TV or a coffee maker. This motel provided a clean place to sleep and shower, which was welcome at the end... More

We booked a room at the last minute for a Car Show we were attending as we had been told that the other Motels we were checking on were all full. There were a lot of amenities around the Motel. Restaurants, gas stations, etc. . It could use some updating. The beds were very hard, the pillows very old, no... More
