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...

This hotel is okay if you aren't picky. There is breakfast included but it was pretty average. Nothing glamorous about the hotel. However, my biggest issue was the fact that there was duct tape on the bottom of the bed. As far as cleanliness it was average, the toilet was dirty but everything else seemed clean.

From the Amazing two ladies who checked us in early with suggestions for places to eat to the spotless rooms and quality breakfast I don't know what else anyone could ask for when looking for a quick night stay while in town to see a show. Left our vehicle in the parking lot and walked to the civic center. Very...

This hotel is older, but they make the best of what they have. Beds and pillows are pretty comfortable and the service is not bad. They offer breakfast in the AM and have a workout room and indoor pool. Irbid also located right off the highway in the center of downtown.

If you're attending an event at Wells Fargo or the old Vets Auditorium and you need a cheap/affordable place to stay, you can't beat this location. Aside from that, the Quality Inn doesn't have much else going for it. The beds aren't very comfortable and the decor is a throwback to the 1970s. But again, you won't choose this hotel...

Hotel is easy walking distance from the Iowa Event Center (Wells Fargo Arena) and a short drive to downtown Des Moines. Room was very clean. This will be where we stay whenever we have plans in the area from now.

Great hotel for exploring downtown Des Moines. Very close to the hockey arena with great views of the river. Front desk staff is very helpful. Ashley had great recommendations for restaurants in the area.
