This property was a bit away from everything on the edge of nowhere and, at the same time, the edge of a new housing district. So it was a bit of a find but GPS did well. Not intuitive at all. While local buildings in the area appear new this facility didn't have automatic doors. With full hands of luggage,... More

This hotel is nestled in a quite neighborhood with beautiful views. The breakfast was amazing, staff was friendly and courteous. They have an indoor pool and jacuzzi that we used after a long day of traveling. Beds were cozy and we rested well.

We stayed 8/14/16 for one night. Check in was easy. Both clerks were knowledgeable about the hotel & it's surroundings. Dan gave us good dining recommendation. I really liked customer service here.

I stayed here at Holiday Inn Express over the weekend during my stay in Pella. I am always satisfied with Holiday Inn Express. They were located about two miles from the city center, and located near a beautiful golf course. It is easy to get to Pella from here, and easy to locate, since it is in a newer area.... More

After a long day of traveling, I slept like a rock on the very comfortable bed and plush pillows at this Holiday Inn - one of the best hotel sleeps I've had in a long time. Room rate was reasonable and the hotel is in a nice location, off the main highway near a golf course - pretty and quiet.... More

Not in a very convenient location. Actually in a residential area a couple of miles off the interstate. Literally nothing within walking distance. If you are visiting Lake Red Rock, this would be a more convenient location than if you are wanting to visit and shop in downtown Pella. Average rooms. Overpriced for location and what you get. Rooms not... More

Room and hotel were average, but certainly not fancy. It was a decent place to sleep for a night, no frills. Most HIX's are nicer, cleaner, fancier than this one. Nothing terribly wrong with this hotel, but certainly not the normal HIX I'm accustomed to.
