Reviewed April 8, 2013

We dropped in with no reservation and the staff was great at assisting us. Our first room was right next to some machine room that was horribly loud. They let us look at a couple rooms and choose one to our satisfaction. All the while being lovely with top notch customer service.
Everything was fine and very nice and in working order. Dinner was lovely in the restaurant. Breakfast the next morning was very good. We would stay there again. Can't say enough good things about the very friendly staff !

Thank you for taking time to let us know about your stay. I'm happy to hear that the front desk staff helped find some room options, so you could make a decison that worked best for you.
I agree, we have some of the best restaurants in Ankeny and we are very luck to have such great choices right across the street from us! The food and service are always top notch and we truly appreciate how they take such good care of our guests. I also enjoy our breakfast. I can't get enough of our cinnamon rolls, not to mention great hot options to chose from. We like to make sure our guest are fed well in Ankeny!! Between supper and breakfast, you won't leave hungry!

We look forward to your next visit!
Jennifer

We enjoyed our king sized bed. The mattress was VERY comfortable. The front desk staff was friendly - even went out of the way to allow us to make some toast in the evening for a sick family member. There were a LOT of electric outlets for all of us with phones and computers, etc. to plug in and recharge.

Me and wife always stay at the Holiday Inn Express Ankeny in our yearly vaccations trip to midwest. It's very easy to get to off the highway. It's close to all in the area and really isn't very far from Des Moines restaurants, either. We always stay in the suites that are nice. It's a clean hotel, with a very friendly staff. The breakfast is good for a free continental breakfast. The free wireless internet connection has always been extremely reliable. We strongly recomend.

Me and my wife lives in Brazil but each year we travel on vaccations to the midwest. We had stayed here a couple time over the past few years. It's a typical Holiday Inn Express hotel. If you've stayed in one, you know how they are. We always stay in the suites for our stay. We really enjoy it and we can recommend.

The Ankeny Holiday Inn Express is excellent value for money. The staff are extremely helpful, well-trained and professional. The rooms were exactly what you want after a long day's travel - big bed, comfortable, nice bath, clean, bright, with good work space for your laptop.

The breakfast room and reception area were comfortable. Breakfast was fine with a pretty good selection.

The hotel is located close to the interstate with several good restaurants within walking distance. Excellent value for money!

We had a business meeting in Ankeny. We needed a hotel that would be close to our meeting spot, easy access, and reasonable rates. The Holiday Inn Express fit those needs. The front desk greeted all us upon arrival (we all checked-in at different times) The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The rooms do have a microwave and refrig. available. There are a couple of restrauants in walking distance which is great when you don't want to get back into the car and drive some more.

Stayed here while attending an Iowa State Cyclone football game. The hotel was clean and comfortable. There was a private function in the breakfast area that was noisy and had a few people that seemed bothered by me just walking through the lobby (no fault of the hotel). I would stay here again.
