Motel 6 Des Moines West
Ranked #19 of 22 Hotels in West Des Moines
Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

After a long driving day the location close to the interstate and gas station was what was needed. Staff were friendly and helpfull. Lots of parking and well lit parking lot for getting things out of the vehicle at night.
I would have no trouble staying here again in the future.

This is my first stay at this Motel 6. The location is a little hard to find, but well worth it. I travel for work and stay in a motel most nights. I'm not gonna pay an extra 20-30 bucks for a free shampoo! If you work for a living and know the value of a dollar, this is the place for you. Clean and comfortable!

First off we were driving cross country, coming from the peaceful and SAFE city of Fort Collins Colorado I am skeptical about where I stay overnight, the location is perfect. High end part of West Des Moines, so if you decide to stay at this Motel 6, the location will without a doubt, the least of your worries.
Really cannot beat the price, but the room will beat you, into a soulless shell of your former self, ok that may be an exaggeration but the room is the cheapest you will find, ever, like throughout history.
The bed seemed to be a box spring with out the charisma of a box spring, more like a box of a box spring, the bed was horribly uncomfortable, BUT the pillow was like a cloud, go figure.
Also our bed spread had a cigarette hole burned into it, nice!!
The shower was slow to drain but the water was hot hot HOT!!

If you are no frills, not even a clock or shampoo and are on a super tight budget, then this is the place for you, the place was fairly clean and in good overall shape. it is like a 500 dollar car, it does what it needs to and nothing else.

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.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the south side because it may be noisy on the Interstate side.

This property was other hotel chains before becoming a Motel 6. The room was very clean, great location-make sure to go down to University Ave for a large selection of dining options or over to the Jordan Creek Mall area.

Only negative is I had a room facing the interstate-ask for a room away from the interstate.

I will stay there again when in town due to the location, price and ease to multiple dining options.

This was one of the nicest Motel 6's I have stayed in. The rooms are inside opposed to outside.
The room was very clean and the beds comfortable. I can do with out shampoo, to me you just bring your own just like when you travel you usually do. No breakfast, which is fine with me because most of the hotel breakfasts you not only pay more money, but they are often loaded with just carbs. So, we went and got breakfast at Perkins. No biggie. I rather select a healthy breakfast. The only thing I would suggest is getting a room away from the traffic. I will stay again. For the two of us we paid $51.51. Can't beat that for one night.

I stopped here last night and I was pleasantly surprised the rooms are very nice and well kept. I'm not a Motel 6 fan, but if they were all like this one, I would change my mind. I slept well as the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was very clean and modern, great shower. No shampoo in the room, so bring your own. The Internet is available but at an extra charge. I'm used to having shampoo, internet and breakfast in the morning, but McDonalds is just a short walk away. The highway noise is not too bad. I rate this motel as excellant for value, location, clean and up to date rooms.


The location is perfect, next to the Mariott w/o the high price.

Room Tip: If you sensitive to highway noise get a room on the south side as there is an exit ramp right to the...
