Stayed here 4 nights for an event at the Wells Fargo Arena. Convenient location: just a short walk to any of the entrances. Plenty of safe, well-lit parking around. Easy walk to the park along the river, and eating places. Hearty Iowa-style breakfasts in the morning buffet. Interesting decor. Friendly staff in the buffet area. The front desk staff were...

Stayed recently for an event at the Iowa Convention Center, being the Quality Inn is less than a 5 minute walk to the Auditoriums door it is ideal for concerts, etc. We have stayed here several times and found this stay consistent with the others, with a friendly staff that tries to check you in as early as possible. Although...

Location is good if going to an event. Check in is at 3:00 pm. We arrived at 4:30 and were told our room wasn't available yet. I had to give my phone number for them to call me to let me know when it would be ready. I went back to the front desk 45 minutes later because I still...

This motel is a very clean motel, has indoor pool, good breakfast selection, no stairs to climb and microwave and refrigerator in the room. Easy to get to when attending an event at the Wells Fargo arena.

Hotel was very reasonably priced for downtown. We had 2 events at Wells Fargo Arena and Hyvee Hall which is a few minute walk. Many tourist attractions including Capital in walking distance. Friendly and knowledgeable guest services. Were on 4th floor and was quiet in the hotel.

The location alone is worth the reasonable price for a room here, particularly if you are going to the events center of the Well. The rooms are your standard room. It's obvious there has been some renovations done. My only complaint about them is that some of the work seems a little subpar. I have stayed here multiple times and...

Room wasn't ready at check in time so manager knocked off 1/2 the bill, can't beat that. Restaurant on the 2nd floor is adequate, nice little bar and seating area and food was good. Some reviews said you could hear highway noise, this was not a problem for us, walls are a little thin though as you could hear the...

The hotel is not far off the highway and does little to insulate you from the noise on three sides. This is out of the hotel's control (location, location, location) and inside the hotel is very quiet. The hotel is a quick walk from the arena, has river views, and access, if you don't mind the constant hum of traffic....

We had great service at check-in. Had trouble getting into our room due to a new key system, but the staff was very apologetic and helpful. The restaurant in the hotel had great service and great food. When we checked out, it seemed the front desk staff was more concerned about talking with each other and worrying about their tax...

We spent the night last night at the Quality Inn, it is a real nice place in the middle of down town Des Moines, Ia.. We got there around 3pm it was snowing and the weather forecast was not the greatest, winds up to 50MPH , we really were not looking forward to going out to eat as cold as...
