Typical Fairfield Inn. Hotel is clean. Furniture in our room, especially the desk was a little beat up which was surprising since it seems like a newer hotel. Beds were comfy. Pool and hot tub were clean and a good temperature. Breakfast area was fairly small, and with so many travelers created a bit of a seating problem. Overall, nice stay with the family for a college visit. Would stay again.

Always worry a little whether the reviews will hold up in reality, but this hotel certainly does. About 3 years old now, but everything is still fresh and new. Beds are great (and we are picky), and very clean (also picky). Everyone is very friendly and the breakfast each morning was quite good for continental style. Plenty of breakfast options to choose from. We were there during the start of basketball finals so there were lots of families and had an issue with kids running and jumping in the halls about 11 p.m. one night, but the hotel can't be held responsible for lack of parental control (lol). All in all, it is an excellent hotel and we would certainly go back for our next trip to Des Moines. Also out of their control (I think) was the beautiful 70 degree weather in March!!

This is a very clean hotel positioned very close to the airport and not exceptionally far from the downtown area. I was impressed with the breakfast area and hallways. Rooms were nice and clean and everything felt new. This is a great business hotel and in that class it was very comfortable. The main drawback were the paper thin walls. I mean the people above me might as well been in the room with me.

Room Tip: west side of hotel rooms close to back parking

Had a long drive from Illinois (over 5 hours) and I made a reservation at the day before I left for this hotel near the Des Moines International Airport ( DSM ).

The hotel was just off an exit at a very convenient spot, just than 5 minutes to the airport, including a gas station nearby to fill up the rental card I had to return.

The place looked quite new, and my king-sized bed was a sight for sore eyes and a body that drove over 300 miles in five and a half hours. Check in was extremely simple, no license plate and car identification required, just a credit card and drivers license, and I was done !

I've got to get a night's sleep to put in on that bed (and it'll be only the one night), but from my observation so far, I would definitely recommend this Fairfield Inn in Des Moines, Iowa.

Room Tip: the low numbered rooms (X01-X15) are in the back of the hotel away from the road (like my room at 20...

Stayed a night this past week at the Fairfield near the Airport.

Was a very convenient location, less than 5 minutes to the airport, including a gas station in between.

Looked like the entire hotel has been updated...room was great. And the entryway, common areas and halls were all updated and quite nice.

Similar to the Fairfield I stayed at in Beloit.....my only disappointment is the noise of the A/C unit.

We recently ran the Des Moines marathon, and stayed at the Fairfield Inn by the airport. It was very clean and quiet. They had a van to take us to the start of the marathon and also had a pick up van. Overall, no complaints. And the Italian Resturant next door to the hotel was outstanding!
