Cons:There are no elevators, only stairs going up ( as far as we saw) .
Cons:**Dated room decor **Extra firm mattress **Ripped/torn furniture and carpet, and scratched fixtures (bathtub, etc) make it look a bit "dirty", but it was actually quite clean. **Limited breakfast
Cons:The room "appeared" clean but still made me a bit uneasy. The mattress seemed to be about 20 yo and swayed in...no support at all and very uncomfortable.
Cons:My second stay in Des Moines at this hotel, while I'm house hunting. Out dated rooms and hotel interiors, bathrooms clean but outdated and somewhat "Motel 6" style. Signs are posted in the rooms advising guests that they will be charged for "stains or theft" on/of towels or sheets. I guess they have a problem with this happening, but it's a very tacky sign. Hotel charges $23-25 for a round trip van pickup from the airport, but its only a 10 minute ride and numerous hotels are located near SeaTac airport that have 10 minute rides and don't charge. I'd understand if the hotel was 30 minutes away, something like that, but it's a quick hop to the airport.
