AmericInn Des Moines Airport

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is right across from the DSM airport, has good reliable shuttle service. There is absolutely nothing around the hotel and no restaurant, so if you want to have dinner, you'll have to call for delivery (very limited) or have your own car. It's a basic budget hotel, clean, and very friendly front desk staff. Room was basically furnished and very clean, bed was comfortable. They do a nice complimentary breakfast in the morning. For one night this met my needs, especially if you have an early flight out.

We made arrangements to spend the night as our flight left at :5:30 am. James checked us in and made arrangements for us to leave our vehicle at a nominal fee until we returned from our vacation. The staff was so friendly and the rooms clean and comfortable, we made arrangements to stay a night upon our return as our flight was getting in very late. He made notes in our reservation letting other staff know we would be late and not to cancel. Wonderful place and will not only tell others about it, but will stay there again.

Used this hotel many times night before morning air flight. Always clean and extremely quiet. Hotel builds walls with cinder blocks not 2x4 like a house and most other hotels. Makes all the difference in solid feeling and quiet.

I really enjoyed my stay with AmericInn. The hotel manager was very friendly and understanding when a last minute emergency made it so I had to check out only hours after checking in. He returned my deposit and while I couldn't get a refund, I was able to check back in later that night by just repaying the deposit. It was a great stay and I'll be going back!

The room was nice and cozy and clean. I had a nice stay. I would stay here again. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The only thing I would request would be to have a sugar free syrup for the coffee in the lobby.

Very nice and clean hotel. Very good for people that have a handicap. The pool was great. Very clean area in the pool area, with many of towels to use. The front desk person named James was very helpful and courteous to the customers. I felt safe staying there

We stayed here while visiting some family in town. The hotel wasn't bad however there were a few but's. The hotel wasn't full, but there were quite a few kids running in and out of the pool area tracking water down the hall. The staff didn't say anything even though it was right by them. In the morning they had a decent breakfast, but a lot of it was low or empty and wasn't being refilled. We removed our Do Not Disturb sign when we left for the day around 11 am, but the cleaning staff never came by to clean our room. For the price we paid, the hotel was ok. It was clean overall and safe, but not the first place we would stay if we return to the area.

Nice room to stay the night in after returning from Vegas. We were jet lagged and not in the mood to drive so this was perfect. Also they had a cheaper park n fly with a shuttle to the airport which made it very convenient

We enjoyed our recent stay with Americinn. Very good breakfast. Our room was clean and nice. The beds were comfortable. The staff was nice. Pool was extremely comfortable. Great value. Would stay with them again.

We enjoyed our recent stay with AmericInn for 3 nights. The grounds & lobby were clean & well kept. Our room was nice and clean thanks to Janet. The beds were comfortable. Their location was convenient. After we were checked in the staff saw we were older and changed our rooms to downstairs. That was nice of them to do. Any questions we had everyone helped us with immediately, of course we appreciated that. Would stay with them again!
