We had a family reunion with 3l people. The hotel staff was very kind, accommodating, and patient. We enjoyed Lake Red Rock, a couple of miles away for boating and swimming. We also enjoyed the Dutch community of Pella with its little shops and museums, a couple of miles away.

Hotel location was in a nice area. Check-in staff was friendly, but only allowed early check-in with a registration to VIP Holiday Inn. Room was decent...comfortable beds and roomy for 3 people, but mascara on the mirrors and floor. Breakfast was nice and breakfast staff was great. Night staff was very friendly and accommodating.

It is on the outskirts of town, so if you want something to eat, you need to drive back into town. But no big deal Room 118 was updated, but the paint in the... More

I like Holliday Inn Express. I have stayed in more than a dozen. This is the first one that disappointed me. The building is not standard. It seems to be a few years old in a golf club area outside of town. It looks like the golf club development went in a few years ago and didnt take off. The... More

I really don't have a lot to report on this hotel. Everything went smoothly. Hotel was clean, staff was nice, hot tub actually worked (unlike most hotels), the air condition ran constantly, which I enjoy for the white noise and the fruit flavored water and chocolate chip cookies were a big bonus!

We stayed at this hotel for two nights, with two adults and four kids. It was great. We had a two room suite so we could spread out a little bit.
