Front desk staff very friendly, helpful and efficient. Room furnishings in excellent condition. Housekeeping done very well. Internet worked perfectly. I think the staff and ownership take great pride in the facility and it showed. Had a restaurant on site but I didn't use. Water pressure in shower was a little weak but tolerable. This is the place I will... More

The rooms are spacious, the restaurant is very good in terms of taste, variety, and congenial atmosphere. Breakfast is not included in the price, but the menu for breakfast is... More

I selected your hotel to be sure a winter storm would not prevent me from attending an ISU conference on soil health. The reservation was made efficiently, check-in went smooth, and Kenna served a great combo meal. Thank you for your great service.

This hotel is ALWAYS such a great place to stay. This was our 3rd visit and on this trip we had our pets. David went above and beyond to get us a room that wouldn't inconvenience other guests and we were very thankful as we had a very vocal pet at times. Breakfast was good, and our overall experience was... More

My family visited this Holiday Inn's property and had a great and short experience. The staff that we came across was very friendly. I wanted to point out Jerrett at the front desk that was very helpful. I will love to visit this property again just from the friendly encounter.

Kenna was a friendly bartender. Easy to recall wifi password! Very close to Iowa State makes this a great place to stay, but avoids all the traffic at the... More

We have a group of people who come and stay for the weekend on an annual basis to scrap book or quilt. A ballroom or two is rented so we may come and go as we please. It is usually very clean, and comfortable, this year several of us noted a slight decline in the business's appearance... Declines noted: There... More

I've stayed at this property many times over the years, traveling on business. It has always been an enjoyable experience. On this occasion, I stayed in and had dinner and a few beers at the bar in the lobby. It is small, but that always provides a better opportunity for good conversation with other guests. Our bartender, Kenna, was very... More
