It is much cheaper to fly out of Des Moines v CID. Staying at the DM a Holiday Inn, breakfast, 24 hr. shuttle, and free parking is great!Wake up call exactly on time. Food at the in-house grill is above average!

Thanks for your comments, I agree, staying at our hotel prior to a flight is a great kickoff to a successful trip. Located directly across the street from the airport, free 24 hour shuttle, park and fly rates all make choosing us a winning idea! Thanks again and hope you had a great trip! More

I felt like Kevin McCallister in Home alone 2. When I checked into the hotel after a long day of work and driving, I was greeted by a wonderful staff. Mikkah who checked me in informed me that they had upgraded me to a suite. That's nice I thought, but I don't need a suite. It was trmendous. I asked... More

I don't want to sound ungrateful. This hotel basically saved our lives, when our Thanksgiving flight into Des Moines was REALLY delayed and we didn't get into Iowa until after 2 am on Thursday. After a never-ending day of travel stress, they had a room and they put us in it. We were thrilled to have a bed and a... More

We were there for a week long dog show and the staff was the best. Each and everyone of them and all week long. They were very efficient. I wish I could rate the restaurant but I didn't eat there but heard the restaurant was pretty high. Depends on if convenience is worth a little more I guess. It normally... More

We stayed here because we were attending a conference being held at the hotel- it was convenient to stay at the hotel instead of commute back and forth across town to our home. Our room was ok. It looked clean, and the bed was fine. The bathroom was so tiny that the door barely had room to open without hitting... More

We held our annual National Specialty show here and I cannot say enough about the excellent staff, clean premises, good food in the little deli, and the amazing room we had. The room was a double queen with a sliding door and a huge balcony overlooking the dining area/pool and hot tub, and it was beautiful and immaculate. The staff... More

This hotel's biggest asset is its staff. They are extremely helpful and accommodating. The second great thing about the hotel is its proximity to the airport and the convenient shuttle bus. The drawbacks are that the hotel is rather dated in terms of decor, and I did feel that I had perhaps been transported to the 1970s! The rooms, however,... More

This is an old hotel that is kept up pretty nicely. It is clean and the service is friendly but feel they should have asked where we wanted our room. Hubby is a gold rewards member which must mean that they know you will be back so give you the crappiest room that no one else will stay in. The... More

My Wife & I stayed here because they accepted pets (We have 3/4 of a dog; he's a Chihuahua, but he's feisty. I wouldn't wear flip-flops around him, if you value your toes...).
