Not bad, but less than spectacular. Breakfast was somewhat disappointing. Not much in the immediate vicinity to do. Pool was small and always occupied by the same large group. They should have rotated people. Rates were pretty high.

Stayed here as a getaway with the wife. I try to choose HIE when I can, because they are better than average hotels for the most part. The first problem was the very high rates. She wouldnt even give me a 10% discount, when I phoned in the reservation. Most hotels will work with you a little, if you ask... More

Was really close and quick to our destination. The hotel was very clean and up to date. Very short stay. Bed were very comfy. Had... More

We stayed here one night in early December. The young guy at the front desk was very helpful and accommodating while trying to get us a quiet room with a working fridge - he succeeded! The room was not overly big but it worked for us. Beds were GREAT - seemed like they were newer - slightly firm with good... More

I loved my stay at the Holiday Inn Express Ankeny Iowa. The staff was very friendly, the lobby looked newly remodeled. My room was very clean and user friendly. Plenty of plugs for technology. The breakfast was nicely maintained. I will stay there often. Great access to Des Moines and Ames.

We usually stick with HI Express and really enjoy all the amenities. This particular hotel was clean overall and fine enough. A few little issues like a bad door sensor that required multiple card swipes, some buildup inside the air conditioner and NO PANCAKE MACHINE! I love those things and look forward to them...but this hotel didn't have one. :(

This is a great place to stay. We come to the Iowa State Fair every year and stay here every year. The customer service is great. We need to be at the fair by about 6 in the morning because we show horses and when I mentioned that to the front desk they had the breakfast ready before we went... More

This hotel was great to say the least. We searched the area and it was the only place with double queens available. Because it was late the front dest clerk gave us a great discount. Although we didnt use all the amenities it appeared that the pool and the fitness areas was well maintained. Our goal was simply shower and... More

There are a few loose ends to finish the remodel, but this is a very nice HIE. Staff is helpful and very proud of their newly remodeled hotel. Everything clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very good.
