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

I've stayed at this hotel many times over the years. The hotel is located close to the freeway and easy to get to. Yvonne and Lisa's checkin was fast and efficient. The building and grounds are well maintained and the lobby is bright and inviting. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Overall, a great place to stay.

This particular Motel 6 is one of my favorites to stay at when in the Des Moines area, rooms and building are clean and well maintained, staff is friendly and helpful. Along with reasonable rates and proximity to a variety of local points of interest and businesses it's worth it.

Stayed one night here on my way to Wyoming. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful. I was able to get a room on a Thursday night without a reservation. For a Motel 6, it is a very nice building and has a decent outdoor pool. I had my dog with me, which is no problem at a Motel 6... More

This is our "go to" motel when we are in Des Moines for agility trials with our dogs. This past week-end we were on the 3rd floor because of our request for the micro-fridge to keep dog food. Little did we realize that come Sunday morning check out the elevator was being serviced! WOW, we ended up carrying luggage, boxes,... More
