Needed a hotel to stay in on trip east and decided on Fairfield Inn in West Des Moines. Was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. Compared to other brands of similar hotels this particular location is among the top 5 on our list and would stay again if ever in the area. Room was a King bed room that was one... More

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.

After a long day and late arrival I was pleasantly surprised when I checked into my room and was upgraded (no request...just did it) to a suite with whirlpool tub and fireplace at a Govt rate. The room was clean, the bedding bright white and crisp, the carpet and furnishings appeared nearly new. Spent three nights and enjoyed the peace... More

After driving 8+ hours, we were in need of a comfy bed and a good nights rest....and it was delivered! Loved the decor and our room was very clean. The pillows felt great at first but were flat when you woke up in the middle of the night. I would recommend bringing your own or see if they have firmer... More

We returned again this year as we think this hotel is a great value for the money. We traveled 9 hours from Toledo, Ohio to West Des Moines, Iowa and found the hotel clean and the rooms well done. It's not the "Ritz" but it's comfortable and friendly. The staff is very friendly and willing to help if you need... More

The hotel appeared to be very recently remodeled. Rooms were decent size with plenty of outlets for your electronics. Beds were comfortable and the chair with ottoman was a welcome addition. Fridge and microwave were nice conveniences, Location is very convenient to the interstate. Our room faced the interstate and it didn't seem well sound proofed. Nice gathering area and... More
