Very good experience.

I have stayed at this site for 6 of the past 8 years. It provides me with the environment I like and it is close enough to various locations I frequent during my stay. The motel is very close to the Des Moines airport.

More like a 1/2 star! Probable the worst Motel 6 I've ever stayed at, no hot water, the room heater was to loud.

Right at the Airport

It met our needs, for a quick overnight with an early morning flight. Motel 6 is always great if you need a bed and a shower. Perfect location, lots of restaurants nearby

Don't waste your money

Booked non-smoking room: opened the door and it reeked of smoke. The staff tried to be helpful but there weren't many rooms available. Ended up with a smaller room and was charged more than original room staff couldn't give a refund.

okay

The distance to the airport is awkward especially if you have a lot of luggages. Too long/inconveinent to walk/ too short to ride a cab

Place is a dump

I stayed three nights and required the front desk to program my phone to wake me up at 5AM. I DID call them and ask them to set my phone up for 5AM. It is a good thing I wake up early anyway because the phone never rang as an alarm. I could never get warm enough water to flow in the shower so depended upon a standing sponge body wash. The only thing good is that it was easy to make the room nice and warm. Won't be staying there anymore for any visits to Des Moines.

Nice Hi-Vee close by so you don't have to bring too much food with you on a multi-night stay.

First off the front desk clerk Rob was more than wonderful, he made checking in enjoyable. Rooms are barebones. Carpets was scary and need to be replace. TV needs to be updated. AC had a smell when compared to other places I've stayed. Bed was lumpy, you can feel the wires underneath your back. Overall it was an uneventful stay. If every traveling thru Iowa again, I might pay an extra 20 bucks to stay somewhere else. I was on a budget this time around, so I made the choice to stay there.

OK Needs Work

Over-all the experience was okay. there was no heater which was important because it was raining. The case for my glasses came up missing after a cleaning, I stayed for 5 days but did not ask for cleaning again. there was no refrigerator, microwave which made eating more expensive.

Clean and safe, but bare bones

Location was a little shady, and they didn't give us enough towels, but it was clean and safe. Fairly close to Maffitt Lake Equestrian Center.
