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

The location of this Holiday Inn--across from the Des Moines airport--is exceptional. The check-in was efficient but the single clerk was extremely busy and we had to wait in line a bit longer than was comfortable. Though clean and adequate, the hotel is showing it's age. The decor was dated and worn. The "tropical courtyard" was dark, gloomy and decorated... More

I stayed here 1 night back in November, and it was fine. I stay frequently at IHG branded hotels, and usually am very impressed. This Holiday Inn was okay, but I wasn't that impressed with the place. It definitely could do with some room upgrades, and the hallways seemed a bit damp and musty. The restaurant was pretty average, and... More

Nice room and staff and for a hotel that has been here all my life it is very well maintained. The oddest thing is the room is clearly updated including HD TV but with a fuzzy low def picture. Why go through all the trouble to update a room and not make sure the guest has a "standard HD" signal... More
