Our two day stay at the Econolodge in Des Moines was very comfortable. The room was clean and furnishings were updated. The staff was exceptionally friendly. The hotel is dog friendly as well, and they were happy to welcome our furry friend. The staff let us play games in the lobby with our friends and dog, and baked cookies in... More

The location is great. It is literally across the street from the Iowa State Fairgrounds. It has a pool, which is nice for the kids and a free continental breakfast. We were there for a horse show and this hotel was very adequate for that. If you are looking for a nice family vacation get-away, I would not choose this... More

This property is across the street from the State Fairgrounds - where I was attending an event. This is a pain and simple motel type lodging. I found the room and facility clean and neat with friendly staff. The breakfast leaves a LOT to be desired. Anything more than juice and coffee was poor quality. There are some eateries within...

We had 2 suites for 1 night for a wedding we were attending at the fairgrounds which were located directly across the street. The rooms were clean, spacious, and well worth the price paid. I was happy with the service and it included continental "hot" breakfast which was great.

Paid 200.00 for a room I was told I never had. I made a reservation 1 year in advance and they made me put my reservation in seperate names. Who does that? Then when I called 10 months later they told me I only had one room only to find out after the first night of our stay that I... More

I'm in Des Moines twice per month for work and I stayed here on July 29th. It is on a busy road however my room was 3rd floor rear and I never heard a thing. The hotel is a good value for the money.

I stay frequently at Choice Hotels - usually Comfort Suites and nice Comfort Inns. I had not stayed at an Econolodge before, but there were not a lot of available options for the two nights I needed in Des Moines. I tried this out based on other reviews and was very satisfied. I was upgraded to a suite and the... More

Fine bed and linens. The first floor carpet is worn but they mentioned the 3rd level rooms have been renovated lately. Really fine for the money. Breakfast bit above average for continental. Many other restaurants close by, close to I-80. I didn't see the pool as had no time or need for it.
