We decided to stay one night in Des Moines to go Christmas shopping. I picked this hotel because it had a very good rate. Right away we were happy with our choice because they were very nice upon check-in. It was decorated in a north woods theme and even the room was very nicely decorated with the same type of décor. The bed was very comfortable and the shower had good pressure. We will definitely stay again and bring the kids next time.

Nice, clean rooms...loved the walk-in shower! Wireless internet connection came with no additional charge, which was nice. Enjoyed the convenience of direct connection to the casino without having to go out in the cold weather. Casino had a good buffet which was convenient, along with the hotel cafe' for breakfast...never had to leave for meals! Liked the secure elevators and casino entrance. Will do this again!

When you walk into the lobby and see all the wood and antiques, you know you are not in a chain box hotel! It's convenient to downtown, quiet and very comfortable. This is an old hotel with lots of history, but is in great shape and a fun experience.

Staff was pleasant. The room was nice and quiet. It was great for a low budget hotel. The hotel was completely booked and yet we did not hear anything from the other rooms. Would definitely stay again. We were going to a conference in downtown Des Moines. It was an easy 10 minute drive from downtown - and half the cost of staying in a downtown hotel.

"Great place to stay while returning from vacation"
We drove from Milwaukee to Phoenix & then to Denver to watch the Milwaukee Brewers win baseball games. Met with friends in Greeley, CO and went up into the mtns. for some R&R. We were running out of time to find a Hotel and decided on DesMoines and landed a great one. It seemed so relaxing. It had its own bar with more baseball, and a cafe for breakfast that was very reasonable. It also had a relaxing pool that was open until 11. Great place to stay--

This is a new hotel in Urbandale close to the interstate and restaurants. We chose this facility because of the location (close to family) and the pool, as we had promised our grandson a fun night in the pool. Check-in was quick and the guy at the desk was friendly. The room was clean, good sized (2 beds), refrigerator, and microwave. Once checked in we headed to the pool which was clean. The pool was small but adequate for a 4-year old. We didn't use the whirlpool. We walked to Ruby Tuesdays for dinner (less than a block). There are other dining options (Arby's, Culvers) available. While the hotel is quite close to the interstate, we did not hear any road noise, which was great. The heater ran periodically throughout the night, which was annoying, but acceptable. Nice bedding and comfortable mattress.
We ate the complimentary breakfast in the morning. My grandson loved the cereal and fruit. My eggs were rubbery and the oatmeal watery. Yuck. So I settled on a banana and yogurt. The biscuits and gravy looked good, but didn't try. Felt bad for the same young man/staff that had to man the buffet AND check in/check out guests! Seems like he had to do everything that day! Yet he was very polite and professional. Kudos to him!
I would definitely return to Fairfield Inn Urbandale due to the room cleanliness and value.
