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...). While this is not one of the "Brand New" Holiday Inn Express properties, it is clean, well-maintained and has some other things going for it: 1) Good... More

This hotel is a little far from downtown but in a good location, reasonably new and clean and close to restaurants. Breakfast was pretty much standard. We would consider staying there again. And now I can just keepvtypo nbc until I hit the required 200 character limit. Why do I have to add so many words to describe a fairly... More

Staff was very warm and welcoming including shuttle driver who picke me up and drove me back to airport. Room was nicely updated. Hotel is a little bit chopped up due to various additions over time. Some noise from indoor pool area as my room faced pool. Would suggest getting an outward facing room unless you like to have a... More

The indoor pool, hot tub and atrium are beautiful! Right across from the airport yet I never heard a plane. Large parking lot. Nice, modern rooms. Microwave, plenty of towels, fridge and very comfortable beds. Clean. Only 5 miles from hot spots downtown.

VERY close to the airport. I really like the room mainly because of the microwave and the frig in the room. The hotel is a little dated (some bubbling or signs of moisture in the corner of the room near the carpet) but it does seem that they try to keep it up for the most part. The beds weren't... More

Great airport location. Did not hear any planes and slept like a baby!!! Property in midst of renovation but you can tell that they work hard to keep this older property clean and refreshed. Love location and will stay again

The hotel was ok in general. Ok rooms except for the part that indie see to get to ones action of the rooms we had to come down a few steps - which is on walking but when you have a few bags with you, then it is tricky. They have a nice courtyard where the restaurant was located. Nice... More

For the price, this hotel is pretty average. Room was clean. Pretty normal Holiday Inn. I had no issues, and would recommend this hotel. I only spent one night there but parking was easy and no issues there.

This is an older hotel, that still seems to be doing things right. The receptionist was friendly and informative. The restaurant was cafeteria style, with a selection of sandwiches and sweets, the hospitality was plentiful and pleasant. They were careful enough to put me towards the back of the hotel away from the families with kids. As a business traveler,... More

I spent one night here as an overnight stop before an early morning flight out of Des Moines. The hotel was clean, but the lobby needs a face lift. It's not a very inspiring place to walk into. However, it is very convenient to the airport--right across the street. The lounge was closed for remodel and the hotel restaurant was... More
