Great place if you are in town for the City.
Everything about the experience, from reservation to check-out was great! Owner maintained clear communications through the entire process.
Location is fantastic. Easy to find, central location, easy access for shopping and cuisine.
The only slight negative is that the property is a bit more dated than it seems in the photos. If you are looking for a stay where you need to use the kitchen a lot and you are use to the most up-to-date appliances, or where your group wants a "resort experience", this may not be the best choice for you. But if you need a place to sleep safely and comfortably while you are in Des Moines, this is a great find at a great price.
If business brings me and my team back to Des Moines for 3 or 4 days, I would not hesitate to stay here again.
Great Location A little run down
Pros: Location, 10 minutes from downtown and the DSM airport.
Ample space. Bathrooms were clean.
Cons: Photos don't accurately depict the condition of the house. I like older homes, but this property could use some routine maintenance. There is a strong musty odor when you enter. Probably dampness in the basement. The front steps are hazardous and the doorknob came off in our hand when we tried to open the front door from the outside. Little things like an old stove, broken tiles and stink bugs in the bedroom , half used toiletries in the bathrooms add up. The back alley entrance is so rutted that you have to be extra careful to center the car over the ruts to avoid damage.
Sorry, but It wasn't as described
The owner was very easy to get a hold of and accommodated us coming in early. However, the house is on a very busy and noisy street. There are two room air conditioners for the whole house.We couldn't close bedroom doors for privacy or it got hot. Owner had many fans for the rooms, but I thought it was central air conditioned. The circuit breaker had to flipped every other day and in the middle of the night. Laundry facilities were in a scary looking basement and the kitchen stove is very old and burned our eyes and throat when we opened the oven door. The place had a lot of deferred maintenance but it was located very close to downtown. I will probably stay in a hotel next time.
Very nice place. Accommodated the six of us very well. Easy access to everywhere we needed to go. Recommend this place. Matt was very available. Thanks
Close to downtown!
Great location! We loved the games and puzzles that were provided and the ease of booking and checking in! We would stay again in the future!
