Stay somewhere else! This was the hardest most painful bed I've ever slept on! I felt like I was laying on the floor of a tent with only a blanket under me. We both woke from what sleep we did get, with aches and pains in our necks, backs and hips. I am 34 average weight and he is 43...

For the part of town it is located, it is a very good value. Most hotels in West Des Moines are a little pricey. But it's also a very basic hotel, with very little, if any, amenities. My room was very clean, including the bathroom. I did not see anything that would turn me off, such as mold, bugs, stains,...

Motel 6 is a chain that provides basic needs at an affordable price. This particular one had a wonderful staff, great housekeeping and nice sized rooms. The title says it all: "Better than most". I was satisfied

Bare bones, no frills hotel. Definitely cheap, everything else in the area is twice the price. Stayed one night with my husband and 2 kids. Seemed fairly safe, which was probably the best part of our stay. Certainly could have been cleaner though. The carpet was old and stained. Even though we were in a non smoking room and the...

This was the nicest Motel 6 ive ever encountered. Its nestled between Candlewood and Marriot. The Rooms are interior, so you feel safer. The staff is superb, very welcoming and glad youre staying there. They are pet friendly with no fee (as is all Motel 6's) The room was rather spacious and quaint. Very clean. And you cant beat their...

Just checked in last night and good thing we were able to do instant booking over the phone which we're about to check-in in two hours just to stay overnight. This motel is a good place to rest after a very tiring day on the road. The price is $49.99 which is not bad. There were two queen beds which...

This is an ok place to stay if you want a cheap rate. It was as clean as it could be concise ring the carpet was very stained, door in bathroom is rotted on the bottom. Bathroom fixtures were very clean. Bring your hairdryer and shampoo because they are not supplied, only hand soap is. Coffee is free in the...

We needed an inexpensive motel room for the first night of a longer visit to West Des Moines, and this location fit the bill perfectly. Easy access from I-80. I had checked out the map beforehand, so the fact that the motel is tucked away behind a Marriott and a Candlewood Suites wasn't a problem. We didn't arrive until 3:30am...

This hotel is pretty plebian even for a Motel 6, but it has a bed and bath, so what else would you expect? Well, a quiet room, for one. First, all of the single-bed rooms are facing I-80 with trucks zooming back and forth seemingly outside the window. That is bad enough, but then inside, the rooms are like a...

Our week here was terrible. The worst thing was the employees and house keeping. They only came in our room once and did half the work. When I complained at the desk, I was offered cleaning supplies to do it myself. They never give enough towels or toilet paper, and give only one bar of soap. Never coming back here...
