Paper thin walls so you hear your neighbors. Asked for top floor away from elevators and ice machines. We got right next to the elevators on top floor. Had to wait at least 15 minutes to check in as they only have one person checking people in. The front counter staff both at evening and morning where rude and not...

I have stayed at La Quinta multiple times and the experience is consistently good. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The free breakfast is more than just toast or pastries and I love that they are truly pet friendly, allowing me to travel with my dog and not have to pay an extra fee.

We stopped here on a cross-country trip with our kitty. The staff was very welcoming and accommodating, and booked us in a room close to our car for easier cat transport. The room was basic, but clean. Close proximity to shops and restaurants was an added bonus after a long day of driving, and the mini fridge/microwave was a great...

The hotel is in need of a serious upgrade. The room I recently stayed in was partially painted, and had a very bad odour of something like old man cologne and sweat. I have been staying here regularly and you can see that it has really gone downhill.

No issues, I accept the age of the motel and the condition it is maintained in, however it does show it's age in places like the parking area and surrounding grounds. La Quinta's policy of allowing pets is a great plus and very much appreciated.

We checked in and although one of the computers was acting up we got settled in our room just fine. Larry did his best to try to accommodate us and even called to check that we were happy with our room. We travel with our dogs and prefer to be on the 1st floor. The hotel was busy and we...

We were in Iowa for the dog show at the fairgrounds. Rooms were clean although a bit "tired" Beds were comfortable, would prefer queen size to full size when three of us travel together but this chain doesn't offer that size. Didn't try the breakfast but it looked like standard hotel fare. Cracker Barrel across the street. Pool and hot...

So nice to hear that you had a good stay with us here in Des Moines/Clive. We would definitely like to apologize for the lack of Queen beds; we know that it can be hard to get sleep when you have to share as it is. Next time you are in, ask us about some other options for room accommodations...

Old property. Maintained by friendly staff but it is an old property in first generation (Baymont) style facility. Price is fair for the neighborhood. Get a back side room if you don't like highway noise.

Thank you so much for your comments and your stay. It is amazing to hear that our staff and service were up to par. Be assured, our aesthetic has not gone unnoticed and our maintenance and management teams will continue to work as hard as they can to bring the building around until the remodel comes. Again, thanks for your...

Moving across country, cars stuffed to the gills, cats traveling with us. I was surprised how many hotels are not at all pet friendly, or charge exorbitant fees. A moving company nightmare forced us to change reservations several times, and the Des Moines La Quinta had room for us at the last minute, late at night, pets welcomed. The property...

While the property is a little tired, the rooms were clean with comfortable beds, microwave and fridge, very basic. We had to leave early every morning so I cannot comment on the breakfast. Working pool with a hot tub, which we appreciated after a long day on our feet on cement. The staff is incredibly friendly and really tries to...
