We stayed overnight here - it was a nice place. I paid for the breakfast buffet with my reservations- highly recommend doing that b/c it’s $10 a person to eat there. It was very good w/ lots of choices- I did have to ask for my breakfast tickets when I checked in! Beds were comfy & it was very clean!

This Holiday Inn is making improvements to their facility! Vastly improved from last year! Staff is extremely helpful, even moving our group (400 people) to a cooler location during a heat wave. Comfortable and clean.

Overall, this was a fine place to stay. The facility was clean and the people were very friendly. It is right across the road from the airport. It had a nice looking pool (which we did not use). We only had bagels and coffee at their little café and they were fine. What we did not like: the place was like a labyrinth, the key cards did not work well; if at all-had to have them changed 3x and our cold water spigot only gave us warm water. These are small things I realize, but in an older property, with no breakfast there are facilities for a similar price point that might be a better option

Thank you for noting our friendly staff and cleanliness; a full made to order hot breakfast is available in our Grill except for heavily discounted rates. Just mention to the Registration Agent assisting and you will be all set! Thanks for sharing on "a fine place to stay"!!!

I was in Des Moines for a speaking gig and my family came along, since it was Father's Day weekend. The family had a great time using the pool, hot tub, and work out room. Breakfast was great although a little pricey. Overall clean rooms and a nice place to stay for a few days.

Room tip: We were in parking lot view room as opposed to pool side, seemed a little quieter (A/C was noisy, but we like fan noise when sleeping.)

This hotel is great and it’s right by the airport. We dropped our rental car off and the hotel shuttle took us to the hotel then took us back to the airport at 4:00am. The room was comfortable and clean. The Grill made an excellent cheeseburger and fries. The staff was very nice and helpful. The only cons I can think of is that the elevator was very hot and humid and so was the 2nd floor hallway. Also, our TV wouldn’t get very loud and we had a little trouble hearing it. But all in all it was a great hotel, our room was very comfortable, the pool area was very nice. We will stay there again!
