La Quinta Inn & Suites Des Moines/West-Clive

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

While the beds were comfortable and staff were nice, overall I was not impressed with the quality of this hotel for the price. The room was small with dated finishing. Also, the hot tub was luke warm, with murky water that had an off smell. The continental breakfast was descent but nothing special.

i have stayed here many times and it is always just okay. Friendly staff but the room had 'ants' this time and breakfast is lacking in so many ways. There are many other hotels in the area that give them competition but seems they don't listen to read their comments for improvement.

This is an older La Quinta; however, it was clean and comfortable. There are casual and fast food restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. There is also a QT gas station on the corner.

Decent hotel for the price, not quite as up to date as a lot of La Quintas seem to be, but everything was clean. I was most disappointed the treadmill was not working as I depend on hotel gyms while I'm traveling.

The staff was pleasant and the facilities are nice. Didn't use the pool this time, but I have in the past. This is a great stay for the price. The only downside is that the mattress was too hard for me, but it was tolerable.

Easy to find, good breakfast, clean, and pet friendly. Definitely consider stopping.

It was a fair hotel. I probably would not stay again.

Only negative thing I can say about my stay was the sink did not drain well. That's it. The staff was VERY friendly both day and night. I showed up 10 minutes late for breakfast and the staff accomadated me. The room was very comfortable, my room was facing the interstate but the traffic noise was very minimal. It was a great stay and not only would I recommend it but will also stay again on my next visit .

I love LaQuintas and when possible, reserve rooms there. Breakfast very complete with hot, cold and healthy choice. Rooms, although dated, are clean and comfortable. The staff is always accomendating and pleasant.

Great Hotel only stayed 1 night but the front desk was very nice. room was very nice would for sure stay again ! Had my dog along made it easy for her and I :)

This was a fairly nice hotel. Nothing spectacular but very clean and very comfortable.

The staff was very pleasant and the room was clean and comfortable. Convenient location right off the highway.

Driving from Chi to Breck, stopped in and spent the night. Was very clean and easy. Great Service!

We booked online and arrived to the hotel. The lobby was outdated but clean. We received our key promptly and were given instructions to the room. We arrived at our room to find that we were put in a smoking room. I called down to see if there was anyway we could change. We told there was not. The room was overly pungent with the smell of stale cigarettes. My husband and I couldn't sleep the smell was so bad. We ended up going to Costco and buying a package of Lysol and dosing the room. The room just didn't appear to have a clean quality about it. The price for what we got was not great. Would not stay again.

The hotel room itself wasn't horrible. It's run down and has that dirty feel. The stairwells, lobby and grounds were dirty and smelled of urine and marijuana.

We usually choose Hampton..will in the future...thought the room could have been cleaner and updated more... Beds were fine....breakfast was a little short compared to Hampton....will pay extra for Hampton next time

great location for anything you want to do in West Des Moines. ood clean hotel. Would stay again when in town.

The room was clean and comfortable. I would stay again if I am in the area.

We were there for an overnight and everything was just as it should be. Room was clean and comfortable. Everything worked properly. Pool area and hot tub were very pleasant. Check-in and check-out were the fastest and smoothest I've ever had (had booked online) and staff were pleasant. Nothing particularly special but very satisfactory.

I stayed here last year at Christmas time too. I'm very happy with all considerations. The pool is a plus as my grandchildren enjoy it.
