Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hubie Excellent motel right off of I-80
We stayed here last year and found it to be the best motel of our entire trip to Colorado from Wisconsin. We returned this year and found it to be just as good. Only thing is we missed the social, which occurs on Tues. through Thurs. nights. But the front desk sent us to a great restaurant nearby called "Granite City." We hope to return for a more extended stay later this year and again on our way home from Colorado in 2015.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Matthew32 Great Staff!!
The staff at this property is splendid, from the General Manager to the front desk, housekeepers and the maintenance department, everyone is so great. They are kind and professional. They make you feel like you are at home. The social on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursdays is awesome. The rooms are spacious, it was like being in a studio apartment. I would stay here again and again. Can't wait till my next trip to West Des Moines.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Aaron3636 Nice place, but...
Was surprised to find that a nearby room had a dog in it and the dog barked quit a bit at night, disturbing my parents sleep.
We have stayed at Staybridge probably a dozen times and this is the first I've seen of a dog in the rooms.
A couple of concerns about that:
1) the noise they make obviously
2) the filth that these animals can bring into a room and us knowing that we may be sleeping in beds that a dog has recently shed in, slobbered on, peed in, etc.
I would feel much better about staying at Staybridge again if I knew that either a) dogs were not allowed, or b) that there was a "dog section" so to speak where dog owners can stay and sleep in rooms other dog owners have slept in and listen to the noise other dogs make. Conversely, those who don't bring animals in would not have to hear that noise or sleep in beds that other peoples animals have slept in.
So far as I can help it, i do not plan on staying at Staybridge again as long as I can find a no-dogs motel or a motel that confines dog owners to rooms in a particular part of the building.
Thank you for reeading my review.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Buddycraft Great stay for the thankgiving holiday
This was a great hotel close to the families house with convience of being close to shopping and the highway. We traveled 11 hours from Kentucky and we needed sleep before the thanksgiving lunch. The best was so awesome to sleep in we fell right asleep immediately. Plenty of yard for the dog to walk and in a quiet neighborhood. The breakfast was good with waffles to satisfy the appetite and plenty of choices for breakfast. The free newspaper was great for Black Friday store ads to get our shopping itinerary in order with the family. We enjoyed this hotel we recommend to stay in this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pinworms Great Place
Everything was great, including the free dinner and breakfast that we enjoyed. The only exception was that the front desk clerk was overwhelmed with guests so I waited for about 5-10 min before she could check me in and the door lock on the first room we were assigned didn't work.

We enjoyed out recent stay at the West Des Moines Staybridge. The room was spacious and clean. The breakfast the next morning was very good. Better than a lot of more expensive hotels. Would defiantly stay again, maybe for a family reunion.

My wife had a work thing over the weekend so I took my three small kids to meet her for the evening. They loved the big room with the kitchen, the pool, and breakfast was good. For the value and location this is a great hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JanDeb66 A Great Place To Stay
My sister and I were looking for a pet friendly place about half way between the Twin Cities and Kansas City. What a surprise when we arrived to find a wonderful living room, kitchen plus all the amenities and a beautiful walking path too. Our experience with pet friendly places is that that are somewhat sub standard. I will definitely stay at this place again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by FF90618 RUDE HOSTESS
THE FRONT DESK LADY ON 11-13- 13 @ 7P.M. WAS CONFRONTATIONAL AND RUDE. OUR POLICE AND FIRE EXCUTIVE PENSION BOARD MEMBERS STAY 1-2 NIGHTS IN THIS HOTEL AND HAVE A MEETING IN THE BUILDING WE OWN NEXT DOOR TO THIS HOTEL EVERY 6 WEEKS.WE HAVE A ACCOUNT WITH THIS HOTEL. . WE HAVE NEVER BEEN ASKED TO FURNISH OUR OWN CREDIT CARD.
WE ARE THE EXCUTIVE BOARD THAT APPROVES THIS CARD!!
THE HOTEL MANAGER KNOWS THAT. THIS LADY ( NOT THE MANAGER ) ARGUED WITH ME OVER THIS. SOME OF ARE RETIRED SO WE KNOW WHEN YOU TAKE OUR PERSONAL CREDIT CARD YOU PUT OUR OWN MONEY ON A HOLD. WE CANNOT AFFORD THIS . WE ARE TRAVING 200 MILES TO HAVE THIS MEETING. WE MIGHT NEED OUR CARD IF WE HAVE CAR PROBLEMS OR NEED TO USE OUR PERSONAL CARD FOR PERSONAL NEEDS!!
THE REST OF THE STAFF WAS EXCELLENT.

This is the third year that our family has gathered for a holiday celebration and stayed here. We love it and that is why we keep coming back. The staff is super friendly and greets you like family every time you go thru the lobby. We love the roominess of the rooms and the fridge and dishwasher help with our celebration meals.
Sleeping is great because you don't have any noise from the hallway or rooms above or next to you.
I highly recommend Staybridge!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve8888 Made it right
I booked 2 double queen rooms and when I arrived I was told they only had 1 double queen due to a booking problem. Instead of bringing a rollaway into a single king room they took it a very large step further and replaced the double queen room with 2 king bed rooms/suites that were adjouned. And of course only charged me the double queen price. I was very appreciative and Matthew at the front desk was awesome in the transaction. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Thanks

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by d490 Credit Card Only??
Reserved the room with credit card. When we arrived I told the clerk I would be paying cash. She related I would have to pay by credit card only. I related I didn;t have an issue with her keeping the credit card on file, just don;t charge it for the room charges and I would pay cash. Nope, she wouldn't do it. I like to pay cash and see no reason why they can't keep the credit on file until I check out to cover any damages. I understand that, but like to pay cash and not have it on a card. Never had this issue with any other major hotel in the country. Was an awesome hotel and everyhting was awesome. However, only allowing credit card for payment, I wont be back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SaraK Outstanding service and accommodations
We were greeted by Matthew who was very personable and professional as he made us feel welcome.
There were four of us staying in the room and an additional two who were joining us for cards. The room was large enough to
have a table and six chairs so we didn't have to play in the eating area on the main floor. (We borrowed some chairs from the meeting room)
Matthew called us after a couple of hours to make sure everything was okay with our room.
Breakfast was outstanding and the complimentary local paper as well as USA Today were greatly appreciated.
I would definitely recommend this lovely property for either a short-term or long-term stay!

This is my favorite place to stay in Des Moines when I am in town for a meeting, IHCA is close by.
In fact when I come to Des Moines on leisure I also try to stay here!
I recommend Staybridge to my co-workers, peers and family!
They probably think I have some financial stake in the hotel,

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by neanirbas Bright Lights
While our suite was quite comfortable and we took advantage of the nice breakfast we can't give the highest marks because of the extremely bright lights in the parking lot. It was like a flood light pouring into our room under the curtains. We had to put a pillow on the AC to try block out the light.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JLKM Weekend Family Visit
We enjoyed a beautiful autumn weekend at this hotel in West Des Moines while in town visiting family. Our suite was so relaxing and the breakfast buffets were exceptional. Our room was quiet, clean and the staff extremely nice and friendly. Our puppy accompanied us and was also welcomed warmly and settled in without qualmns.
We have decided to make this our hotel of choice when we need to overnight in WDM. The room rate was fair and a far better deal than other hotels nearby that aren't as well appointed.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by KariAnn Decent stay, good value for the price
The room was clean and updated - except for the bathroom which had peeling paint and crumbling tile. The price was good and the pool and gym were well maintained and breakfast provided was great with a big selection. Overall, it was a good stay. The only other problem was housekeeping for the stay is not provided on weekends or holidays and we stayed over both so we went from Saturday to Tuesday with no service. So we had lots of trash and needed towels and coffee.
