Motel 6 is a chain that provides basic needs at an affordable price. This particular one had a wonderful staff, great housekeeping and nice sized rooms. The title says it all: "Better than most". I was satisfied

Bare bones, no frills hotel. Definitely cheap, everything else in the area is twice the price. Stayed one night with my husband and 2 kids. Seemed fairly safe, which was probably the best part of our stay. Certainly could have been cleaner though. The carpet was old and stained. Even though we were in a non smoking room and the... More

This was the nicest Motel 6 ive ever encountered. Its nestled between Candlewood and Marriot. The Rooms are interior, so you feel safer. The staff is superb, very welcoming and glad youre staying there. They are pet friendly with no fee (as is all Motel 6's) The room was rather spacious and quaint. Very clean. And you cant beat their... More

Just checked in last night and good thing we were able to do instant booking over the phone which we're about to check-in in two hours just to stay overnight. This motel is a good place to rest after a very tiring day on the road. The price is $49.99 which is not bad. There were two queen beds which... More

This is an ok place to stay if you want a cheap rate. It was as clean as it could be concise ring the carpet was very stained, door in bathroom is rotted on the bottom. Bathroom fixtures were very clean. Bring your hairdryer and shampoo because they are not supplied, only hand soap is. Coffee is free in the... More

We needed an inexpensive motel room for the first night of a longer visit to West Des Moines, and this location fit the bill perfectly. Easy access from I-80. I had checked out the map beforehand, so the fact that the motel is tucked away behind a Marriott and a Candlewood Suites wasn't a problem. We didn't arrive until 3:30am... More

This hotel is pretty plebian even for a Motel 6, but it has a bed and bath, so what else would you expect? Well, a quiet room, for one. First, all of the single-bed rooms are facing I-80 with trucks zooming back and forth seemingly outside the window. That is bad enough, but then inside, the rooms are like a... More

Our week here was terrible. The worst thing was the employees and house keeping. They only came in our room once and did half the work. When I complained at the desk, I was offered cleaning supplies to do it myself. They never give enough towels or toilet paper, and give only one bar of soap. Never coming back here... More

We stayed here over night as my husband was having surgery the next morning. The room was nice and clean, but there was no shampoo. When I asked about it, they said we could buy it from a machine downstairs. There was no hair dryer. No tissues. Just things that make a stay better. There was no clock, no microwave,... More

Easy to get to from the highway. We checked in without a reservation. It was relatively inexpensive ($73), but too expensive for the comfort level and complete lack of amenities. No clock, no microwave, no fridge, no breakfast, no outlets near the beds, and only 1 luggage cart. The counter was not clean - like it hadn't been wiped. The... More
