This property is right off of 35 so it is definitely louder with the traffic and busy intersection but that is just the location. Let's discuss the property. The hotel is dated. Looks like they did the half option of the remodel to spruce it up. They opted out of the full remodel. The staff that I encountered was nice.... More

The staff was all friendly and helpful when I had questions about the area. Bed was comfortable. Several options for relaxing within the room: couch, chairs, and desk chair. My room had two televisions. I was traveling alone and still ended up watching both throughout my time in the room.

Very easy to find and attentive staff. Beds were comfortable and room was well maintained. Hot breakfast in the morning was tasty. The hotel staff made sure breakfast items were refilled so there was no waiting. I would definitely stay here again.

The room was clean and comfortable. All of the staff were friendly and courteous. Pool and hot tub worked great. There are plenty of options for everyone at the breakfast. The hotel is conveniently located off the highway.

Rooms are clean, breakfast is good and staff are very friendly and helpful. I have stayed here several times and have very been disappointed. This hotel is located near lots of things to do. Hot breakfast in the morning is free and very good too.

Hot day in Des Moines area! Fairfield was a cool relief! I downloaded the Marriott app and pre checked in! Comfy beds and pillows! Easy access to parking. As we hauled in luggage they got our door opened for us! Nice pool area inside, small but clean.
