  • Family with children

    I liked the guy who worked at the front desk when I checked in and checked out...but the other employee that was on overnight was not very nice and rude. There was Mold on our bathroom floor and I needed more towels to lay down on it because after showering I was not going to step down onto mold.

  • Group of friends

    This was just an overnight stop for 7 people on motorcycles. I booked 5 rooms initially and had to cancel one. I did this with no trouble and very quickly with confirmations. Rooms were clean, quiet, affordable, close to the highway, good shower and had recently been painted. Needed a jump start for one bike the next morning and the owner had jumper cables available.

  • Group of friends

    The new rooms are nice. I liked the shower, the new TV and the pillows.

  • Single

    it was clean (there were foot prints from shoes in the shower- ick) enough and the bed was okay.

    It was okay

  • Group of friends

    Great place for a weekend get away at a great price!!!

  • Couple

    In good condition for a Motel 6 with the rooms seeming to have been remodeled recently. Easy interstate access means you can get to any part of Des Moines quickly.

    It is what it is. A budget motel.

  • Group of friends

    They were very helpful when the reservation did not show up on their system. Fortunately, there were 2 rooms available.

    The beds in our room made a whole lot of noise when using them. Sounded like loud cracking each time I moved.

  • Family with children

    As described and budget-friendly.

  • Single

    Location for my purposes, otherwise not much...just a basic room,, not carpet, stark, Just a place to rest your head and go on.

    Location and rate

  • Older travelers

    It was very clean and at the right price for the budget.

    I kinda with there was better adjustments on the air conditioner. But it was ok ... cooled very well.

  • Group of friends

    First time I tried motel six. I was impresses with the cleanliness and friendliness

  • Older travelers

    The rooms were recently updated from our last stay at the motel. The room was clean and attractive. The rate quoted me by was not what I was originally charged, but after talking to the manager I was given the room at the quoted price. I have had this problem before at other motels and the manager wouldn't do anything about it.

    The heating system was not climate controlled. You had to keep turning it on and off when you got too cold or too hot.

  • Older travelers


    The reason we booked this hotel was previous guests stated it had been remodeled and was clean. We were just traveling through Des Moines and thought we would try staying at an inexpensive hotel. We would't do that again as the maintanence is not being done and the hotel is already starting to show wear ( living and shower curtain rods missing hooks) and paint already needing to be redone.

  • Older travelers

    The staff person who checked us in was very nice.

    The bed was very uncomfortable. I expected this to be an economy hotel but I had hoped for a comfortable bed.

  • Older travelers

    Smell Damp feeling of room
