The motel is located in a commercial area without any eating establishments or shopping nearby. It is clean, modern, and attractive. The staff is friendly and efficient. I feel the pet charge is higher than comparable motels and inconvenient when the room is on the 3rd floor and a long distance to walk. Most dogs are not familiar with elevators...

Staff were very friendly, nice room and kitchen, Wi-Fi was ok, when we first got in the room the phone wasn't working and the sink was leaking but that got taken care of quickly, the maintenance guy came the next morning to fix the sink and they brought a new phone. I thought it was over priced and the location...

Not a fan. No dishes or silverware in the room. Uncomfortable beds. Location is not near any attractions. Pre packed muffins does not constitute as a breakfast. No drink choices for kids. Hot tea and coffee only. Not a good setup with bathroom door opening into kitchen.

When I first moved to Des Moines, Extended Stay America in Urbandale was my home away from home. I stayed there for two months as I settled into a new job and searched for a new place to live. It was a good choice as I found the staff extremely friendly, supportive and inviting. I worked with the front desk...

We work over the road and REALLY appreciate it when we can get a place where we can cook a meal ourselves and have some place that has more of a "Apartment" feel to it. This chain really fits the bill and this particular property was one of the best that we have stayed at. This review is being done...

We booked our stay through Priceline as an Express Deal - so we didn't get to choose the hotel. After booking and then reading reviews, I was very leery of staying here. We booked non-smoking rooms and got non-smoking rooms. The rooms were clean. There were no dishes in the room, not even glasses. I would think they could replace...

We stayed there to take a break from the long journey. It is an OK place if you are used to extended stay. There is a kitchenette which we found it to be useful because the location is not great to go out and eat. A light breakfast is served.
