My wife and I stayed at the Fairfield Inn for a short weekend getaway in Des Moines. Overall we had mixed emotions with our stay and would most likely try somewhere new next time. Pros The rate was very reasonable for the area and considering that we booked the room short notice. Our check-in was very easy and the woman... More

What a great experience! The hotel staff was awesome, the breakfast was great, the room was SO COOL. It felt very kid friendly. I had driven 550 miles that night with my 3 young daughters, so the greatness of this Hotel was much needed! If I could rate it 6 stars, I would.

This is a newly updated hotel, and one can only hope is not a proto-type for Fairfield Inns of the future. They've upgraded asthetics in the lobby, but dramatically reduced the size and functionality of the guest rooms. I stay in Marriott properties 50 to 75 nights a year, roughly half of those in Fairfield Inns. If this is a... More

Just your ordinary off the highway Fairfield. Nothing bad and nothing special. Good location right off highway and two miles from a big mall for plenty of eating choices. Room was big and beds were comfy. Workout room a bit small and hot tub under repair. Breakfast was a huge disappointment. Coffee was old and bitter and hot breakfast portion... More

I recently stayed here and have to say that I was duly impressed. The hotel has had a facelift and the decor was really fun. I liked the varying patterns that were throughout the hotel. Our room felt very spacious and I liked the little couch off to the side with the fun tables. It was a great spot to... More

The breakfast area was a bit crowded. Other than that, this was a great stay. It all seems newly updated. No complaints. We had a clean room that smelled good. Never have I had a more comfortable bed. I would recommend this Fairfield.
