This particular Motel 6 is one of my favorites to stay at when in the Des Moines area, rooms and building are clean and well maintained, staff is friendly and helpful. Along with reasonable rates and proximity to a variety of local points of interest and businesses it's worth it.

Stayed one night here on my way to Wyoming. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful. I was able to get a room on a Thursday night without a reservation. For a Motel 6, it is a very nice building and has a decent outdoor pool. I had my dog with me, which is no problem at a Motel 6...

This is our "go to" motel when we are in Des Moines for agility trials with our dogs. This past week-end we were on the 3rd floor because of our request for the micro-fridge to keep dog food. Little did we realize that come Sunday morning check out the elevator was being serviced! WOW, we ended up carrying luggage, boxes,...

Well, Motel 6 kept the light on for me and not much else. The room was okay, but that is about it. There was no hot water, slightly warm. One bar of soap, no shampoo, and bath towels were about the size of dish towels. No breakfast, only warm coffee with no lids for the cups.

I've never been in a hotel room that did not supply kleenex, shampoo or a hair dryer until today. This was the first and last time I will ever stay in a Motel 6. Horrible beds, bedding and towels. It took forever to get checked in. Made me want to check my credit card on line.

I have stayed on this property a number of times. It is a basic no thrills hotel. No free breakfast, no shampoo and old tube style TV. The rooms are clean, the front desk people are very friendly and you cannot beat the location.

We called ahead and made a reservation as weather was bad and we decided to not drive through the evening. Because we reserved after check-in it was explained we cannot cancel our reservation. Upon check-in there were people smoking out front where you have to enter and the whole area smells of mirijuana. Our room carpet is filthy and the...

We spent a short night here on the last night of an extended road trip. As it was late and we were leaving early we chose to stop at a discount hotel. What a bargain! The place was VERY clean and nice. We had a 3rd floor room and had awesome water pressure. Knowing that Motel 6 is a pet...

I stay in hotels 300 + nights yearly. This hotel is one of my favorites. The checkin was fast and efficient. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Overall, a great place to stay. Large vehicle parking is limited.
