Nice hotel, clean, easy to access, very close to an amazing mall, beds were comfortable. Staff were helpful and courteous. Hotel was quiet and we enjoyed out stay. The hotel is about 15 minutes from downtown Des Moines, with easy access to the city. We enjoyed being away from the hustle and noise in the evening.

Paying a lot for a hotel you expect internet service that works and hot food that suppose to be hot food. Went the front desk twice and they said they would call someone to fixt the internet. The wifi never did work at all.

It was busy and loud when we arrived around 11pm. Had a wedding after party going on. Agent at desk handled it very professionally and quickly. Room was very comfortable and breakfast was good as well!

Being as Fairfield Inns aren't touted as a luxury product, my expectations weren't very high (nothing against the hotel at all since it was a great value for the money). But I was extremely impressed that the check in process was much friendlier and informative than I've experiencd at much more extravagant hotels. The receptionist was extremely friendly and professional,... More

The staff was friendly and welcoming. I was very impressed with one in particular. Zach with the front desk was absolutely amazing. My reservation was a bit complicated and it took a few extra steps to make happen, Zach was friendly, knowledgeable and determined to please his guest. I was extremely satisfied with his service. I will most definitely be... More

We were just starting our two plus week driving tour of the midwest and this was our second stop. While a bit more expensive than our usual choices, it was well worth the 25-30 extra dollars. It was a newer facility, with very efficient staff. Rooms were spacious and quiet and the beds were comfortable. Everything was spic and span... More

We were greeted by a welcoming staff, and they were helpful and pleasant. The room we stayed in was quiet and comfortable, and was very clean. The breakfast was a bit disappointing - not much of a selection, by Fairfield Inn standards. The food that was there was not really hot, and no hot oatmeal, no waffle available that morning,...

The hotel it self is very nice. Room was clean and quiet. The down side is the bathroom. There was a cheap tub kit that didn't fit in bathtub. When you stood for a shower, the floor dented in and made cracking noises. You felt like you were going to fall through the bottom of the tub. It also made... More

From the time we checked in until we left this property was wonderful. When we arrived the front desk staff said there was a problem with our room.
