What a joke!!!!

Reviewed 24 october, 2021

My wife and I were traveling through Des Moines and decided to stay at the La Quinta motel because of a good price and good reviews. First their computers weren't working and it took at least a half hour to get a room. The desk clerk didn't appear to know what he was doing. We finally got a room and went out to dinner. When we returned we happened to walk by the front desk and heard another guest talking to the clerk that the room they gave her was already occupied. The room she was given was our room!!! She received a key card and opened the door and realized the room was already occupied. We then went to our room and realized that our key cards no longer worked so had to go down and have that corrected. The front desk staff were very unprofessional and appeared to not know what they were doing. Then later in the evening as we were watching TV in our room, we heard somebody at our door. When I went to check there was another family trying to open our door as they also had been given our room!!! The positive was the motel is relatively new and everything was clean. Although, for some reason the beds only had a sheet and a very light cover on them, apparently they forgot to put any type of blanket on the beds. We have stayed in many La Quinta motels in the past and always have been generally satisfied. This stay was probably the worst experience we have had during any motel stay for many years. Staff training is certainly necessary! Probably won't be returning here again anytime soon. Major disappointment.

New Modern Hotel kept nice and clean

Reviewed 17 october, 2021

A newer hotel that is being kept up nice and clean. I did not like they accept pets, but that did not seem to be a problem at this property. Lots of parking outside, inside the hotel and in our room it was extremely clean. The hotel and room decor was very cute. Mini fridge and microwave in our room. 5 pillows on the bed mad sleep extra dreamy! On top of all of that breakfast was good. This place exceeded all of my expectations.

Ok. Highway noise at night

Reviewed 16 october, 2021

Nice new property. Helpful staff. Decent breakfast. Close to a lot of amenities and a short drive from downtown does Moines. Wish staff wore masks and were protecting guess. If your room is close to the highway it may be difficult to sleep it may be difficult to sleep with the trucks and highway traffic at night. Asked to be moved to another room on the other side of building which was better but still noisy at night.

Wish we could have stayed longer. The hotel is extremely clean and updated. The room was perfect and clean. We had all the amenities we needed in the room. Did not get a chance to check out the pool or exercise room.

Best Hotel on our x-country trip

Reviewed 7 october, 2021

Best hotel we stayed at on our cross country trip. Recently built, clean and fresh Comfy beds and right off of I-80. Wish they could all be this good. Even offers a hot breakfast. Close to several good restaurants. Dog friendly. Even has a small indoor pool.
