We needed a place to stay and Motel 6 fit the bill. Nice room and staff. Easy to get to and close to food and shopping. Motel 6 is a budget chain and always outperforms its price range. Would recommend.

When I arrived at the front desk the lady who worked there looked grumpy, no hello or smile anything like that. The room was fine the bed was clean except the carpet had a lot of stains and the TV is out dated! There was no free WiFi either I think it was like $3 for a day. It was...

When we first arrived I was pleased, GREAT location (within 5 minutes to major shopping/restaurants), clean room- what else could you want for under $60? However: the walls are paper thin and around midnight our next door neighbors arrived (from the bar maybe?) they were so loud I called the front desk to make a noise complaint. Surprisingly the front...

This is by far the best! Staff is simply amazing, very welcoming and helpful. The room was outstanding and the most comfortable bed we have ever slept on. Not much for amenities however the price is good.

WOW.....this hotel has been completely renovated from floor to ceiling. Brand new flooring, linens, draperies, flat screen LG televisions, mattresses, paint, sinks, countertops - everything. It is like a new hotel. Well done corporate! We stayed here last fall in September and had to change rooms due to mold on the ceiling on a 3rd floor room. We were hesitant...

Clean, comfortable, safe and friendly. Save money by staying here with affordable rates and use the money you saved for the things you enjoy. Dinner-several options in the area, from budget friendly to fine dining. There is a huge mall less than a mile away as well as a movie theater, bars and fast food.

Stayed here one night and it was clean and quiet. Very few amenities if any. However, it was a good price and just what we needed for that night. It was convenient from I35 and in a good area of Des Moines.

Ehhh. That about sums it up. Bare bones. No coffee maker, no microwave, no fridge. Bathroom was clean, room was clean. TV had very limited channels. Biggest complaint was no lid on the toilet and when you flushed it spewed water out... so covered with bath mat. Poor water pressure and shower head was in an uncomfortable corner of the...

Very clean and friendly hotel for the money. The room was nice and cozy. Although the rooms are outdated it still was a very relaxing experience and I would gladly visit again. There were eating places within walking distance and that was great also. Great job and keep it up.

Luxury this isn't - but the price reflects this. No breakfast, no coffee machine in room; coffee in lobby morning only. Microwave in lobby area by soda machine and snack machine (out of order!). One plus, Perkins is open for all meals all hours, I think, and you can walk there. Not a place to rave about, but adequate for...
