I have stayed here weekly for a while, and I will never ever stay here again! Washer and dryer take hours to perform, complete incompetent on the staff and management. Walls unpainted, spa not working, no one working at the breakfast area. Gradually the quality and cleanliness of the express roach hotel has gone down hill in the last 6...

Can walk over to Diamond Jo Casino. Room was great, upgraded as IHG member. IHG Chase credit card is great if you don't have it. 1 free night anywhere in the world on your card anniversary. My wife and I each used it in Paris at the Intercontinental LeGrand which was $650 per night. Card fee is only $49. This...

This hotel was very clean and the hotel staff were very courteous, caring, and friendly! We were told upon check in of the Snoozapalooza event where everyone gets a late checkout AND breakfast until noon! We took full advantage of this and chose to come down for breakfast around 1030. Dining area was very clean and all food was well...

Nothing missing and nothing out of place. It is so nice to know what you will see when you visit a location for the first time. You will find the usual comfy beds and your choice of 'firm' or 'soft' pillows; all in a freshly cleaned room. It just will not vary in quality from one HIX to another. Never...

We love the location in northern Iowa. Right off I30. Able to run off road near hotel. Casino is fun place to lose money, not too smokey. Eating is OK, wish there was another option; buffet, too much money or fast food.

Stayed here while traveling between destinations. Very close when you pull off the interstate. Friendly staff at front desk both checking in and out. Cookies and lemon water were available in the lobby as I checked in. Breakfast area was open and fully stocked the next morning. The other buildings at this exit include a very nice Iowa travel center,...

Checked in to the Holiday Inn Express across the street from Jo Diamond Casino without a lot of expectations as I was visiting a friend who was going through a family tragedy. From the day I got there (I was here for a week) I was treated like I was the most important guest in the hotel, and the hotel...

This is my 2nd time staying at this hotel. Both times were good stays. The rooms were clean and there was no yucky grout in the bathroom. There was a small stain on the sheets this last trip that did give me pause but it was a king bed and I didn't have to go anywhere near it. The included...

This was a somewhat roomy room for 5. This hotel worked us a great rate on a last minute upgraded room. There was a pool that my kids used daily and vending machines for those late night munchies. Would recommend this hotel to others. Clean and well maintained.
