Stayed here with 12 families with our softball team for a tournament. Management was amazing in setting us up with a block of rooms. They worked hard to meet our budget and the rooms were spotless and poolside as we requested! Everyone loved the pool and courtyard area - there was room to spread out which was perfect! Thank you!

This property has a lot of age on it but showing some overall updates and improvements since the last time I stayed. The bar is currently closed and under renovations but the staff are all friendly and seem to be doing their best to help.

We just completed a $4 million dollar expansion of our convention facilities and should have our new lobby bar and coffee bar open this fall just off the main lobby! We are excited to have you try them both out during your next visit! More

My family attended a 3 day church conference at the Hotel. The accommodations for the conference and the room were wonderful. Plenty of comfortable AC on hot days. The place was very clean and staff waited on you quickly for any little thing. No free breakfast, but the restaurant area offered plenty of affordable food and snacks. Was not very... More

I spent a night at this hotel due to a flight connection at the Des Moines airport which is right across the street from the hotel. The shuttle service and the check in staff were great and welcoming. The hotel itself seems quite dated. Most of the rooms are in an atrium around the pool which seems to attract families.... More

In town for medical reasons. Easy check-in. Nice clean room. Very friendly staff. Free parking. Had a great made-to-order breakfast before I left. See they are adding a lobby bar (with coffees). Hope to check that out next time.

Due to poor weather, our flight got redirected to (and cancelled in) DesMoines IA. By midnight, United was booking rooms for 2 flights at Des Moines hotels. My husband and I were sent to the Holiday Inn Airport Conference Center. The shuttle was quick, efficient and free because the hotel is 1-2 minutes from the airport. (We tipped our driver... More

This Holiday Inn is directly across from the Des Moines Airport. I am guessing by the style and looks of this hotel it was built in the 1960's or the very early 1970's. Check In was friendly and quick. I was upgraded for being a Platinum Member. I was given 500 Welcome Bonus Points. This hotel has a large area... More

This hotel is nothing too fancy, but incredibly close to the airport and the Employees are exceptionally nice and helpful! The facility is clean and inviting. The Grille area has good food and overall it's where I always stay when I have a short amount of time in Des Moines.

An older holiday inn reasonably well kept up but ready for some repairs and modernization. The doors on the rear elevators need repair, they are noisy and frightening to women and small children. Overall the hotel looks worn by time and use. Staff are courteous and efficient
