Sneaky added fees.
Watch out for a "safe fee" added to your credit card even when you don't use the safe. When we used the pool and hot tub there was a group of people there that I'm not even sure were guests at the motel. They had kids there past the time it closed for kids. An employee came into the pool area and didn't say a thing about it. Can't recommend this place.

No frills but clean
Cracked tiles in bathroom floor. Kids and adults happily trying to talk over each other. Minimal continental breakfast. All areas are sized small like shallow pool, tiny breakfast nook for food, dining-entry-lobby-hall, and room was not impressive. Staff had multiple jobs. However, the room, bed, and towels were clean.

2018 stay at Econo Lodge in Des Moines near state
Attended AQHA horse show at the fair grounds. Best location ever. Kids loved the pool and hot tub. Free breakfast was awesome and great management.

Not so good
Picked out of way location due to having hot tub but when went to use it it was broken. Computer in lobby broken. Needed baby bed not available stolen they said. Lock on room door unable to open w room key had to call fronted each time to let us in. Beds n room was great. Breakfast was great.

Nice room, staff and hotel!
Check in was very easy and front desk was very friendly. Maintenance was in the middle of updating the curtains when I checked in and I had been accidentally put into one of those rooms but the gentleman who came to help was friendly and fixed everything quickly. Local bus route is right outside the hotel making it very easy to arrive at the hotel from my bus into Des Moines. Room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast choices were nice for how small the area was.
