New, Clean and Fresh
October 09, 2018

I was worried about booking this hotel because of the poor reviews. I decided to take my chance since they have truck parking and allow dogs. I'm so happy that I did. I called the day before and asked if I could check in at 8 am and check out that same evening since I'm a truck driver and have to abide by the hours of service. Manisha was very accommodating. The hotel is in the process of being remodeled. My room was beautiful. It had brand new furnishings, a large television, and a very comfortable bed. Even the towels were new. The room was very clean and smelled good. I have nothing negative to say. I highly recommend giving this place a chance.

Horrible Experience
August 14, 2018

This hotel was such a disappointment ! We have stayed at American Inn in the past and have always been satisfied ! Front desk when checking is wasn't even at the front desk. I had to go track him down. He was beyond rude and not helpful at all ! No elevator ! Vending machines didn't work ! Our refrigerator in our room wasn't working! Shampoo, Conditioner accessories were all empty in our room. Yes, I brought this all up to the front desk and nothing was done! Charges for my room were double charged! The lady the next morning was wonderful and took care of all that for me! I won't be back to this hotel and wouldn't recommend it to my dog let alone anyone else.

Excellent service and friendly staff at American Inn on North East 14th

Had a very good experience here at the American inn on North East 14th and Des Moines Iowa . Me and my family checked in there back in February gentleman met me at the door carried my to the room . Housekeeping was great room was clean . Great location internet speeds were a little bit slow for Wifi connection but to say the least very great service and affordable prices would definitely recommend this Motel if you're looking for cheap rates and great service in a good neighborhood

Horrible place to stay
March 09, 2017

Door did not lock So bring your gun - knife- ball bat - speed dial 911 phone for your protection. Did find 2 dollars a lunch pail and part of a children’s toy under the bed + some wrappers and a syringe. I do not always look under the bed but wanted to make sure a badger or possum was not living underneath it. Room smelled bad and had bare wires Loose wore wall sockets trim falling off ceiling. Nice place to take a Hooker and get drunk. Or killed not to bring up the non locking door again. How we ended up here was to save a buck on our weekend stay. Sad owners let their business run down so bad as this.

This is a place that you take a one night stand if you are drunk
June 30, 2016

The only reason we picked this place was it was the closest one that came up on Google map. We have been driving for 15 hours and we were tired and my wife need first floor access due to an injury she had. This place is for sale now as well it should be, The way I would do it would be a complete demolish the whole building and rebuild a new hotel with a different name. The hall way smelled like someone had vomited, the pillows had stains on the (photos will be posted) the usual door jam lock for inside and outside doors were missing. The ice bucket smelled and looked like it was an ice cream container. Do not stay here
