We spent one night at the Holiday Inn Express in Urbandale. We were in the Des Moines area to visit friends and to go to Adventureland. The location was perfect, right near the interstate, and there were plenty of places to eat nearby. The hotel was pretty clean and the rooms were good-sized. I also liked how you had a choice in which pillows to use, based on the embroidered pillow case, indicating "soft" or "firm". We spent a couple of hours in the pool, which was not crowded at all, and we also enjoyed the hot tub. In the morning before we left, we enjoyed a nice breakfast. The only not-perfect observation I made was that when we were checking under the beds before we left to make sure we didn't leave anything, we saw a couple of little cheerios, which were obviously from a previous family because we did not eat anything in the room and none of us eat cheerios anyway. They should maybe try to do a little more thorough job of picking up/vacuuming the room. Wouldn't hold something little like that against them, though, and would definitely recommend this hotel to others.
