The rooms we had were on the opposite side from the interstate so they were quiet. The carpet was scary to walk on, combination of very old and dirty, or so old will not clean. The bedding was just as old, used my own sheet, blanket and pillow because of other reviews. Bathroom was surprisingly clean and I did like...

In an office building complex with about 4 other higher priced hotels. Great looking building from the outside, but the walls are paper thin, and if you get the north side of the building you are right along I-80. For the price it is a good place to crash for one night while traveling.

While a nice location, the handicapped room is a joke. Ours was on the second floor, furthest room from the elevator. They were thinking weren't they? Anyway, the bathroom was the problem. Sink hung from wall, caulk was about only thing holding it and it was cracked (whatever you do, don't lean on it) no vanity to place anything on,...

We booked on the web and got a fantastic rate and were able to request a "quiet room" which was held for us even though we checked in late. The gal at the front desk was efficient, friendly and mentioned the rooms were due for a complete update which is clearly needed. But none-the-less, we had a quiet rest, the...

Clean, cost effective room in a good part of town. Bed is so so. Ask for a double room, they are on the opposite side of the interstate an much quieter. Food is close by. Nice place to stay on the west side of town.

Stay somewhere else! This was the hardest most painful bed I've ever slept on! I felt like I was laying on the floor of a tent with only a blanket under me. We both woke from what sleep we did get, with aches and pains in our necks, backs and hips. I am 34 average weight and he is 43...

For the part of town it is located, it is a very good value. Most hotels in West Des Moines are a little pricey. But it's also a very basic hotel, with very little, if any, amenities. My room was very clean, including the bathroom. I did not see anything that would turn me off, such as mold, bugs, stains,...

Motel 6 is a chain that provides basic needs at an affordable price. This particular one had a wonderful staff, great housekeeping and nice sized rooms. The title says it all: "Better than most". I was satisfied

Bare bones, no frills hotel. Definitely cheap, everything else in the area is twice the price. Stayed one night with my husband and 2 kids. Seemed fairly safe, which was probably the best part of our stay. Certainly could have been cleaner though. The carpet was old and stained. Even though we were in a non smoking room and the...
