Ehhh. That about sums it up. Bare bones. No coffee maker, no microwave, no fridge. Bathroom was clean, room was clean. TV had very limited channels. Biggest complaint was no lid on the toilet and when you flushed it spewed water out... so covered with bath mat. Poor water pressure and shower head was in an uncomfortable corner of the... More

Very clean and friendly hotel for the money. The room was nice and cozy. Although the rooms are outdated it still was a very relaxing experience and I would gladly visit again. There were eating places within walking distance and that was great also. Great job and keep it up.

Luxury this isn't - but the price reflects this. No breakfast, no coffee machine in room; coffee in lobby morning only. Microwave in lobby area by soda machine and snack machine (out of order!). One plus, Perkins is open for all meals all hours, I think, and you can walk there. Not a place to rave about, but adequate for... More

Booked for a three night stay during the state fair. All hotel rooms were overpriced and this was all we could get for less than $150. It was OK for the price. No real issues with the hotel itself. It was clean, room had plenty of space for us to buy food and keep in refrigerator, store our bags, and... More

You get what you pay for. Exterior wall crumbling, handicapped cement barriers shattered, funky smelling hallways, noisy room facing interstate, no microwave, no refrigerator, no free wi-fi, no breakfast, no shampoo, no coffee, no updated tvs, no pen or paper, no channel guide, no ever coming back!! Person at front desk was friendly, though.

Beginning the morning in Utah, the second leg of my cross country journey got me to Des Moines (almost)! It was a rather dark night and the roads are not your typical freeway straight shot. It was a sight for sore eyes- the familiar sign with a large 6!! They did indeed leave the light on!! New, clean, and with... More

I normally don't care for Motel 6 locations with interior hallways as they tend to be noisy. But this location impressed me from the start. Very clean, very fresh smelling, quiet hallways, friendly employees, great business park area with limited but good choices for a quick meal. Wifi worked well (and is free for AARP members). My only issue was... More

The rooms we had were on the opposite side from the interstate so they were quiet. The carpet was scary to walk on, combination of very old and dirty, or so old will not clean. The bedding was just as old, used my own sheet, blanket and pillow because of other reviews. Bathroom was surprisingly clean and I did like... More

In an office building complex with about 4 other higher priced hotels. Great looking building from the outside, but the walls are paper thin, and if you get the north side of the building you are right along I-80. For the price it is a good place to crash for one night while traveling.
