Good Value

The Motel 6 room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. The bathroom appeared to have been remodeled recently and was small but well done. There was no dresser but otherwise the room was very adequate. The room was quiet. It is only 30 miles from Iowa Speedway in Newton.

Noisy But Convenient

As other reviewers have said, this hotel was surprisingly up to date and attractive for a Motel 6, particularly with the wood floors. I was not charged extra for bringing a dog, which was a major plus. The main downside was the location; it is right on I-80, so the road noise is considerable. There is also a sign outside the hotel with an arrow pointing to get there; unfortunately, this sign is right at the corner of the entrance to the access road, but there is no access to the hotel from the access road, and instead the arrow is meant to direct people who have entered the side street that is separated from the access road by a wall. You have to go north on the main road to turn onto that road, but I turned on the access road, which resulted in having to get back on the highway in the wrong direction and loop back around.

our nationwide nascar getaway

Went to Nascar Nationwide race which was about 28 miles away. Hotels right near the racetrack were charging $175.00 per night and I did much better just by traveling a little way.

Motel 6 Des Moines North

This is the second time I have stayed at the Motel 6 North. I chose it originally because of it's price and location near the Interstate and it's proximity to Downtown. The staff was very friendly and the room was comfortable. For the price, it was just what I expected.
