We stayed one night. We were very pleased with the hotel. Very Surprised with how quite it was with the airport right across the street. Hardly heard the jumbo jets at all. Great job on the updates and the free am breakfast was great too! Comfortable beds as well. Would definitely stay here again!

Thank you for taking the time to share your very kind words about your stay with us. Glad to hear that you like the renovations that we have done over the summer. Our free Hot, home-style breakfast is a great value and we are glad that you enjoyed it. Being able not to hear the airplanes is a plus when staying at a hotel by the airport. Thanks again for your kind words and we look forward to serving you again in the future.

I have stayed several times at this location, as a Super 8 and now as the AmericInn. What a difference the remodel and new brand has made. The bed was very comfortable...which is the most important part of the stay. Staff very friendly and striving to meet expectations. The breakfast is more than continental, biscuits and gravy and eggs and sausage alternating days. Waffles every day. My trips to Des Moines will include stays at the AmericInn Des Moines Airport. Good Job Rachel and thanks for getting my sister out to the airport for her trip back to Houston.

First I must say that every single staff member was pleasant, helpful and friendly. They hire well and the folks all seem to enjoy their job.
The property is relatively newly renovated and it shows. The chain prides itself on being quiet due to its construction, and that's a good thing being so close to the interstate.

My room was not well maintained while I was there and that was disappointing. It was dirty, as if housekeeping only did a quick run through. The breakfast left a lot to be desired. Yes, it was free, but at least have fresh food.

If you're looking for bargain basement, this will do for a quick stay.

We value your opion and business with AmericInn. On the behalf of our hotel staff I am writting to let you know how delighted we were to receive your kind words of praise about the staff. We have just gone through a renovation over the summer months. We are located across from the airport not an interstate and our rooms are quiet. I have talked with the housekeeping staff about taking their time in rooms. I also had a talked with the breakfast attendant to make sure all the food is fresh, that is one main thing that we do when we put the breakfast food out in the mornings. We want every minute of your stay to be enjoyable from the minute you walk in to the time you depart.

I was a recent guest and I was pleasantly surprised with the great renovations. I reserved a king size bedroom and it was very neat and clean. Loved the sink on the outside of bathroom to have a bigger shower/toilet area. Rooms were remodeled and you could definitely see the upgrades. Job well done..Staff was friendly and very efficient. It was always thank you ma'am and how could we serve you better attitude. Treated me like I was a guest in their own home.
I will recommend this to my family, friends and co-workers. Oh, I would stay there again..

This former Super 8 property has converted well to the friendly AmericInn brand. A lot of remodeling is evident, including that new carpet smell (but not that strong). Rooms are good and include a microwave and good-sized fridge. Free breakfast was average. There are other hotels surrounding it. Within walking distance is a Perkins Family Restaurant and a large Hy-Vee Supermarket with a expansive deli/salad bar, and for us craft beer fans the liquor area sells over 100 beers at $1.50 each. I would certainly stay again.
