I am generally opposed to staying in a Motel 6, especially the old ones. They can be dirty and downright scary. This was NOT the case at the Motel 6 on Office Drive in West Des Moines! This motel above all things was CLEAN! It is a fairly new facility. The room had newer carpet and bathroom fixtures-no dents, stains, light and CLEAN. The beds were decent. The sheets and towels were small but not the bottom of the barrel cheap. The room was furnished amply with basic furniture, a TV, refrigerator, and microwave that were clean. You have to ask in advance for those amenities as not all rooms have them. The decor was mostly white walls, blue carpet, without the gaudy oranges and yellows you see in some Motel 6 units. There is an elevator. Parking is ample. There is plenty of room to exercise a pet. There are chain and fast food restaurants close by. A couple miles south is Jordan Creek Shopping Center where there are both chain and upscale restaurants. The location makes it handy to access I-80 and get around Des Moines. If you just need a basic, no frills room, but insist on safety and cleanliness, this is not a bad place to stay at all. I was traveling with my dog and did not feel ill at ease about my surroundings or people at all. Bring your own hairdryer and watch or phone as rooms have no clocks.
