The property was very easy to get to off the Interstate and it had a nice indoor pool. Bathroom sink drain was very slow to drain.

The fitness center was poorly maintained, there were quite a few pieces of equipment missing. Otherwise the rooms were clean and comfortable, the staff was lovely and helpful, and it was a terrific value for the price.

It’s a little hidden from the road but, staff was excellent, surrounding amenities is great - cute town area about a mile or so up the road. Quiet, slept great and parking lot is well lit! Perfect overnite overall. No complaints!

This is our second time staying. We have relatives we visit in Des Moines. The only down side this time was our poolside room had a machinery sound going all night. Next time we will ask for an inside room

It was very clean but in need of some updating and remodeling. For the price it was a good value.

I was very pleased for the money. No problem & was impressed. The room I had was clean, had a small fridge & microwave, quite, the bathroom was clean (no mold growing) & good water pressure, & bed was comfortable. For breakfast you had many choices, hot or cold, & was good. Only thing was not enough tables to eat at, but I took my food to the pool area & was able to sit at a table there, plus it was quite. Also, there was no elevator, so if you had a room upstairs you had to haul it up. However, my room was on first floor which for that reason was good. This was my first time staying at an AmericInn & will do so again.
