Excellent and Inexpensive
Recently remodeled, family owned, blast from the past. One level, set back from highway, old style motel. You park your car three feet from your door and deal with some of the nicest innkeepers I have ever met. I called in advance and early check in was no problem. Upon arrival, we were shown our room before we checked in and asked if it met our expectations. We were even offered help with our luggage. The room had the usual amenities, Wi-Fi, cable, mini-fridge, and microwave. No ice or in room coffee. However, there is a 24 hour chain convenience store next door that has a gourmet coffee bar offering 16oz cups for $1.50 and free ice if you id yourself as a motel guest. I have walked farther to the ice machine in major four star hotels. hotels. Easy access to most of Des Moines major attractions. Excellent alternative to 150 room major chains.

Decent budget hotel
The hotel was pretty rundown and in desperate need of an update. There was some trash left over from previous occupants in our room. The staff was relatively friendly and helpful. The hotel was quiet, but close to a main road. Good for budget travel or a quick overnight stay.

I got a refund.
I did not stay. The motel was in an area almost deserted -- auto body shops; I don't know what. There were two vehicles in the parking lot (this was at 8:00 on a Friday night). I didn't feel safe and I didn't stay. It was a ghost town. The reception desk was behind a window with a little tiny to hole pass your credit card through. The only windows in the rooms looked directly out onto the parking slot in front of the room, leaving no privacy unless you wanted to be in a cave.

Good, clean, no frills motel
We stayed here two nights- checked in around 10 pm on a Thursday, checked out around 10 am on a Saturday. The owners take care of everything- she was very prompt getting us checked in. The room was spacious, very clean, and the bed was comfortable. There was a microwave, fridge, and tv in the room, along with a comfy king size bed and a table and chairs. Bathroom was small but very clean, water pressure was not that great but I think that's to be expected in a hotel. They cleaned our room while we were out on Friday, but even took the initiative to make the bed with the pillows we had brought and tucked theirs away. The hotel was moderately full, but we heard nothing. If you are looking for a basic, extremely clean, affordable hotel, look no further. We'll definitely stay here again.
