Was driving thru and needed a place... was disappointed. price was too high compared to room quality. Old and outdated. The water in the shower was too conditioned. Been to many better priced hotels with same accommodations. Just simply wasnt worth the price.

Although the decor is dated, this is a clean, welcoming place to stay in Des Moines. It was very comfortable and I slept well. Having a free breakfast is a plus - it is not a bad breakfast and the buffet is larger than the standard free hotel breakfast. The hotel provides free rides to the local hospitals, which is a nice service. My only complaint is if your family member is transferred to a hospice, you are on your own.

It was a very comfortable and enjoyable stay at the Quality Inn Des Moines Airport. The front desk staff is very friendly and helpful. They gave us good recommendations for restaurants to visit in the area. The rooms were very clean and the room decor was nice. Enjoyed the pool and the hot tub

Room Tip: Rooms not facing the fleur drive are a bit quieter

Last year, Comfort Inn. This year, Quality Inn. Renovations hardly noticeable. Still the same old comfortable place. New folks at the desk; Sam is particularly helpful and gracious. Really a good guy who will go out of his way to accomodate. Place is very convenient to the Airport and parking is always easy. Breakfast is so-so, nothing special, but adequate. Rooms are bright and clean, plenty of amenities; coffee, microwave, refrigerator. Maid failed to clean the coffee maker, but that's no big deal.
However... Ask for a room on the back side of the hotel. When those planes start taking off at 6:00 am, they are noticeable if you're on the front.

Worst thing is not very soundproof, the neighbors had music with base on all night. Hotel has been recently remodeled and looks nice. Faculty was clean. You could see the age a bit around the shower. Pool was 3-4 ft deep and not freezing cold which is good. Hot tub was small but hot. Morning breakfast was the usual. Waffles weren't great but biscuits & gravy were good. Parking was nice & close. Had to wait a bit longer to checkout than I thought was appropriate, they were in the back room with lots of talking and phone rang many times before they came out but once someone came out, checkout happened quickly. Overall a good stay.

There is really no much to say about this hotel. It's close to the airport, it is clean and in fairly good condition. It does not have elevator so this might be an issue if you have heavy luggage and get a 2nd or basement level room. Other than that, it serves it's purpose just fine.

We had a wonderful stay during our visit to Des Moines. The location was close to downtown and I enjoyed the morning breakfast. The staff was very friendly and polite. Appreciate the upgrade to a suite.
