2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great to have a restaurant next door. Be prepared for airplane noise. And the room temp system will either heat up or put on air cond... can't just let the room cool down at night on it's own w/o having cold air blow.

Nice hotel, clean, friendly staff. Enjoyed the morning breakfast and free wifi.

Enjoyed my stay! I stayed for 1 night as a quick in and out business trip.

I really liked my stay at this hotel. It is a few blocks from the airport, which was perfect as I was flying out the next morning. They have free shuttle plus I was allowed to keep my truck parked in their lot for the entire week for only $20; far cheaper than the area park n rides. The front desk agent was incredibly friendly and professional. She even gave me a free drink ticket to the connecting restaurant. The room was clean and very comfy, and they had breakfast free of charge. I would stay here again.

Nice location/close to the airport, comfortable bed, clean room, friendly staff, good complementary breakfast and overall just a good stay.

Only draw back would be the pillow size!! Breakfast is excellent!!!

This hotel had two important things to my husband and myself: extremely comfortable bed and the bed continental breakfast we've had! We weren't expecting the breakfast but it was a nice surprise! Throne critique I give this place is the smell when you walk in? Seemed like they may have been having a sewage issue.

Staff were very helpful and being that the hotel is fairly new every thing was clean and comfortable.

My husband, daughter and I stayed here on August 17, 2013 for one night. This hotel was WELL worth the price I got on online($144 with tax). Its right by the Des Moines airport but we didn't hear one plane at all. This hotel is not that far from down town Des moines. It only took us about 8 minutes and we were down town. The room was very nice and the beds were so comfy! I do wish the pool was just a tad bit bigger. The free breakfast was very good as well. It was nice that the breakfast stayed open until 10am so it gave us plenty of time to sleep in and get ready and make it to breakfast. Overall I thought this hotel was very nice and well worth the money. My husband and I travel all the time and have stayed in countless hotels. I thought this hotel was well worth writing a good review for.

It was in a good location to where we were needing to go, clean, nice exercise equipment, the pool was a little cool though and the hot tub was to hot but other than that it was a great hotel!!

The hotel was wonderful, Staff excellent. A little pricey for just an overnight stay. Had to leave hotel before we had time to eat breakfast, to catch plane.

We stayed here the night before we had an early morning flight. The hotel shuttle to and from the airport was very accomodating and simple. We were able to park our car here for $20. for the whole week. A bargain.

We asked for a room on the top floor and we got a first floor room near the icemaker. The desk clerk clearly had little interest in incorporating our room location preference into where she placed us.

I was in DES Moines for a baseball game. This hotel was an absolute delight. The best I have ever enjoyed. Wish I could have stayed a month! Room was immaculate... Modern design... Very comfortable chairs and bed... Just perfect. The breakfast was a huge surprise... Not donuts and juice, like most places... Quiche in a hotel breakfast bar? Just awesome! Staff were great. Wish I were there tonight!

very nice clean quite friendly staff. great breakfast

Business only. New facility. Easy access to WiFi. Hotel in a field. No car so stranded -- thankfully there was a great restaurant in the Radisson next door. Johnnie's Italian Steakhouse. Need to stock beer in the hotel "shop" -- good beer, not American mass produced soda pop. Excellent room. Ample bathroom. Shuttle to airport easy to arrange.

Very convenient to airport, check in was superb & very professional. Rooms clean, staff very friendly and helpful. Most excellent experience and we've had many and it is hard to think of one that was better. Well built facility and noise from aircraft taking off/landing was hardly noticeable during the day & not at all during sleep hours. Management was on top of everything including keeping the outside walk ways clear of snow & ice. Super service. Breakfast was excellent with many options and attended to extremely conscientiously. Highly recommend.

Great hotel, and great location. Clean rooms and friendly staff.

Went to Des Moines to visit family. I always stay in a hotel but I usually stay downtown in the Embassy Suites. I decided to stay close to the airport this time and I was very pleased. The Fairfield Inn is very clean and quiet. The rooms are very nice. Will stay there next time I visit Des Moines.

PROFESSIONAL, FRIENDLY STAFF, WHO WENT OUT OF THEIR WAY TO GIVE ME PERSONAL SERVICE. FACILITY WAS CLEAN AND CONTEMPORARY. ADJACENT RESTAURANT, JOHNNYS ITALIAN STEAKHOUSE WAS EXCELLENT.
