The Quality Inn and Suites is on Fleur Drive across from the Des Moines airport. I prefer the Fairfield Inn down the street which costs the same, but was fully booked.
This was better than I expected from a motel that went from a Comfort Inn down to a Quality Inn. Parking and check in were easy. The room was in good shape. Air conditioning controls are in the under window unit. The fan blew air up behind the curtain, but the room cooled nicely. The room included a refrigerator, couch, microwave, coffee maker, hair dryer, flat screen TV with HBO, good lighting and power outlets on table lamps. WIFI was easy to connect to and was fast.
The king bed was comfortable and had good sheets. Water was extra hot and plentiful, towels were big enough and in good shape.
The pool looked nice and clean although I saw no one swim.
The included breakfast was satisfying with cereal, yogurt, eggs, sausage links and more. I chose hard boiled eggs over the oddly identical cheese omelets which might have be shipped in from anywhere.
On the downside an exit door was duct taped in the unlocked position and the bathroom was small. I had to squeeze in between the toilet and counter top to close the door. The clock radio alarm sounded in the middle of the night, I usually remember to unplug the darn things when I enter a room. The desk clerk (manager?) did not have an indoor voice. All in all a nice stay, though.
