Econo Lodge Urbandale-Northwest Des Moines

1.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The stairs to our room were blocked with caution tape, the heater was turned off (in January), and the iron/coffee maker had graffiti on them (and didn't function well). It was okay since we needed a place to stay before finishing a drive home, but I wouldn't recommend to a friend.

We ran out of toilet paper the 1st 2 hrs and no one answered the bell or phone all night. Beds were never made, trash was not picked up, I set the trash outside the door. The only time I saw a staff person is when I checked in . We were there 2 nights.

Hotel is old but adequate for a short stay.Breakfast was not great. Donuts very dry and hard. It was clean and bed was pretty comfortable. Pillows could have been better.
