“Nice Stay”
Reviewed October 17, 2006

Just stayed for a couple of nights and can't complain.
The rooms are pretty big and the beds are very comfortable.
The pool and hot tub are kind of small but adequate, and they do serve a continental breakfast.
The staff at the desk was very friendly throughout our entire stay.
The location is good, right off the interstate, and there is a couple of fast food joints and a convenience store right next to the hotel.

I stayed here with wife and kids for one night. There was a little league tournament in the area and the hotel was very crowded, but the staff were polite and cheerful. The room and bathroom were clean and comfortable. The beds were only moderately comfortable, but the pillows and bedding were great. There was free high-speed Internet available by cable. The rooms seemed soundproofed, but kids running in the hallway were audible through the door. The indoor pool and whirlpool were medium-sized for a hotel, but was so full of pre-teen baseball players that we stayed away. The free breakfast was good: muffins, bagels, toast, some fruit and cereals, juices, good coffee, and the increasingly common waffle maker. If you want a destination hotel, I'd recommend one of the hotels downtown. If you want a nice reasonably-priced place to stay while you're in Des Moines for something else, I don't think you could do much better than stay here.

Stayed one night here for a sports tournament. Not a good location for us because the event was about a 5 minute drive (on freeway). Anyway, the rooms were very nice and clean. The continental breakfast was nice and fullfuilling. Good things for the nearby restaurants too! A few fast food places just walking distance from the hotel. Very nice, woudl stay again if we were going to be around there again.

The Fairfield Inn is a great place to stay. The hotel is clean and in a nice neighborhood. I would recommend staying in a room on the opposite side of the interstate. There are a half a dozen places to eat in the immediate area and the Jordan Creek Mall is about a mile to the south. This was my first time to stay here and the second or third for the rest of my family. We will stay here again and again.

This was my first exprience staying at a Fairfield and I was pleasently suprised. The lobby area and the pool are very clean. The rooms were huge and which was quite a shock. I have stayed at other chains and have never had the kind of service that I had here. From housekeeping to front desk staff each everyone I had contact with were polite and ready to serve.

We get this hotel frequently when we bid the West Des Moines area for a 2 1/2* hotel on Priceline. Usually able to get a great rate of around $30 + tax/fees which run about $42 total.

Nice newer hotel, pool and jacuzzi -- good continental breakfast and conveniently located to shopping, airport and not too far from downtown DSM.
