Very nice hotel, clean, good amenities, good breakfast, etc. No complaints at all except the price! This hotel is grossly overpriced for such a small town. That's why it's overpriced. They know visitors have few options so they are gouging guests. I have stayed in other hotels in the Dallas area, the San Antonio area, the Oklahoma City area, even... More

After driving 12 hours straight from Arkansas, we were dead tired and just wanted a place to sleep. The front desk worker was amazing! She made us feel very welcome and our check-in (at 7am) was quick. Breakfast was awesome, as several choices were offered. Omelets, pancakes, sweet rolls, and the other great options.

I have stayed at the motel many times, when doing work for clients nearby. It is always clean and the staff friendly and helpful. There are a few eating establishments in the immediate area. the motel is not very old and still has the "new" feeling.

This Holiday Inn Express is pricier than similar hotels in northwest Iowa. I don't know why the market supports it, but it does. For most of our stay, it seemed to be close to full.
