Pros: Most comfortable hotel bed ever. Neat and very clean. Nice staff. Good location. Easy to find.
Cons: Nothing, it was great!
Excellent 9.6
Pros: I have stayed at this location on multiple visits and find it very clean overall, room is spacious, amenities are great, and service and staff is excellent, friendly, and helpful. You have to walk a bit for the activities and restaurants etc, but they offer a fairly convenient shuttle. I personally prefer this off center location.
Cons: This was the only time my room was a bit noisier than usual - I stayed for 3 nights on the first floor. In general I have not found noise to be an issue.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: This Holiday Inn Express catered superbly to two drained, wilted festival-goers looking for a comfortable place to bed down, watch nighttime television, spend some time poolside and catch a light breakfast. On all these fronts, our stay surpassed our expectations! This hotel benefits from gracious, affable and knowledgeable personell at all hours (though the stars of this experience for us were those on duty in the breakfast room near the end of the window and at the reception desk in the late evening and again at around noon.) The staff (to say nothing of the immaculate rooms and stellar breakfast) made for a superb experience from top to bottom and from check-in to check-out.
Cons: The water pressure in my shower left a little something to be desired, and the second of two milk cartons I had at breakfast tasted a little bit weird, but these are obscured by the overall quality of my stay.
Excellent 8.8
Pros: The room was great! Simple and clean. Didn't expect to get two beds for a one person stay. Nice and spacious for the price.
Cons: The breakfast was meh. Wish there was more options for fresh fruit or omelettes.
Excellent 10.0

Cons: Nothing
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The staff is absolutely amazing. They made us feel at home, as we were waiting to close on our new house in Des Moines. The location is absolutely perfect, close to downtown and right on a bike/walking path. The facilities are clean, and the hot breakfast is delicious. This will be my go to place whenever suggesting a hotel in Des Moines.
Cons: more bacon and better coffee

Cons: Rooms weren’t at all soundproof- could hear everything from neighboring rooms. No help removing snow after snowstorm. In fact their plowing made things worse for guests. No one at front desk for 10-15 minutes at a time when guests had to wait.
Excellent 10.0

Excellent 9.6
Pros: The hotel was nice inside and out, and the staff at the front desk was very nice. Room was clean and pretty, and many amenities were provided or offered. Free WiFi offered, and water pressure in shower was fantastic!
Cons: For the price, breakfast should be included, as well as a microwave. Pillows are way too poofy and lack support, not comfortable at all.
Excellent 9.6
Pros: Everything was great. It seemed a bit pricey and I thought that was due to the holidays plus making reservations late. This place actually matched it's pictures. After staying there it will be hard to scale down. I wish I'd brought our bathing suits! Thanks so much for x-mas breakfast.
Cons: It took awhile to get hot water in the shower, but we also got up a bit late.

Excellent 9.6
Cons: when i made this reservation i called to find out how much i needed to have on my card since we were going to an event that weekend that i needed mostly cash i had taken money out of my account. i had called and double checked that morning before i arrived to make sure thats all i needed was the amount. So after drving thru bad weather, emergency room visit i was wore out when i got to the hotel. Now remember i said i called, they informed me i needed 100 more for security. Its 8pm at night, im exhausted, my sons card had 288 on it we even called it. the room was 264.50. for some odd reason it wouldnt let us pay for both nights so we paid for one, about 9 we finally got our room key, since i was hurt earlier in the day i went up to the room while he and the kids went to get luggage. Tiredly i made it up to the room opened the door and theres kids and adults in the room, i quickly left the room and made my way back downstairs. Earlier in the day i stepped on a nail and had to get a tetanus shot, so by now my foots sore and swollen. Im close to tears im so tired and in pain and just want my shoes off. So she dont know why they gave my room to someone else even thou when i called that morning i stated my arrival would be 8 to 10pm. So finally got a room. Did go to breakfast on sunday for 12 bucks and had been in des moines the previous weekend at the fairfield and got a free breakfast there pretty much same as the 12 buck breakfast except i got cheesy hashbrowns at double tree, sausage links were way to undercooked looking that none of us dared eat any. For that price i expected alot better than continental, even Best western in Cedar rapids 3 weeks ago had a free continental breakfast that had exact same food. Rooms were same prices at all three but never had to have an 100 extra. I dont like to complain but all friday evening after i got checked in i was stressed out worrying about the next night and panic attack to put it mildly.

Okay 5.0

Pros: The staff is so accommodating and so wonderful.The hotel rooms are spacious and the beds are so comfortable. Really good amenities in the rooms. Reasonably priced I think it was $119 for the night. They have a wonderful restaurant and bar in the lobby. They have a grab and go for a late night snacks.

Excellent 9.6
Pros: The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff were very nice. Very nice hotel. Smoke free. But as a smoker, they put us in a room so we could easily get the door for a smoke break, instead of climbing 3 flights of stairs every time.

Excellent 9.6
Pros: Located close to the airport, we had an early morning flight, there was food and coffee ready at 4:00am and shuttle was on time.

Good 7.5
Pros: Breakfast was good, something for everyone. The kids really enjoyed the pool.
Cons: I double checked we would be getting a room with two beds for our family of 5, check in and there was only one bed and they staff was unapologetic about that and having nothing else available. They also had no suggestions about coping, like offering extra sheets or a roll out bed, I had to ask. The room didn't even look as pictured online, decorated completely different and stark. The bed we did get was lumpy, hard and the pillows sounded like they were filled with plastic bags. The room also had a musty weird smell and that was before we went to the pool.

Pros: EXCELENT !! Staff was very accomidating, cafe associates very friendly and helpful with special meals ( Glutin Free ) ...Shuttle was convient and drivers very accomidating.... Thank you all very much.. Michael and Patty Pietrantoni
Cons: was as perfect a stay as possible, considering record breaking COLD ...
Okay 4.2
Cons: Dirty floors, puke in the hallway (or something nasty looking), hair tie in our freezer, and just the old outdated look and worn-ness of the property was not worth $175/night.
Good 7.5
Pros: The rooms were pretty clean; The deli-like grill was a neat amenity allowing us to grab some prepared food at a pretty good price. The kids really liked the pool area. The location of the hotel was convenient to the fair and the local parks.
Cons: There was mildew on the grout in the bathroom, and the pool area was generally beaten-up and not maintained well. Considering that the pool area saw the most action during our stay, it's a wonder that the hotel doesn't keep it up as a popular attraction to the hotel. And what's up with the parachute under the dome? It kept on dripping on us.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Awesome pool and lobby area really clean good location
Okay 5.0
Cons: The key to open the door to the room and to enter into the hotel would not work. I had to go the the front desk several times during my stay to have them reactivate my key.
Mediocre 3.0
Pros: Nothing worked couldn't even use the pool
Good 7.0
Pros: The room was big, decor was nice. Everything was clean.
Cons: TV volume was just barely audible with it turned all the way up. Called the desk, they told me to unplug & replug all power cords, called again they sent a guy up with a sheet of paper with "reprograming instructions" but he could not fix it either.
Excellent 9.6
Pros: Liked the location if the hotel and the cleanliness of the room. Very friendly staff and overlooking the pool was nice.
Cons: It stated that we had two breakfasts, but the coupons do not cover a breakfast with a drink.

Okay 5.0
Pros: The woman who checked us in was very nice and there were waffles for breakfast.
Cons: Manager of property was extremely to me, my boyfriend, my mother, and two other customers. He kept messing up reservations and charging people extra and charging people cash for part of the stay and card for the other. He was also unwilling to even calmly talk about things. And the moment my boyfriend started getting upset he said he was making us check out early. We had to check out a day early and so did my mother.

They could not put us in another conjoining room!! There were major wet/mold spots on the ceilings! The pool room was so hot you couldnt even be in there! Breakfast was HORRIBLE!!!!! cold eggs, sausage links smothers in maple syrup, cold syrup for waffles, waffle maker very dirty!!!! When we checked out and I complained about the facility the lady at the front desk said "you cant really complain you only plaid $121 per room while everyone one else paid over $150" well sorry lady but I booked my room months ago because I knew for the state fair you would raise your prices!!!!!!

Good 7.1
Pros: The breakfast was excellent and the hours for breakfast were great/
Cons: The bathroom was not handicap accessible. There was no elevator so getting up the steps was a problem. I had issues with them accepting my price that I received on booking.com. They tried to charge me another $40 plus dollars at checkout today. The mattress was so hard, I couldn't sleep very well. In two nights I had about 7 hours of sleep. The TV in my room didn't work for local channels. I inquired at the desk about it, and the person in reception didn't know why I couldn't get local channels. He told me that he would call the cable company to see if the rooms didn't get local stations. I was never informed what the issue was.
Mediocre 3.0
Cons: No curtains. Dirty furniture and carpet.

Pros: I thought the beds were beyond comfortable, one of the nicest hotel beds I’ve ever slept in. The room was very clean, and the staff was nice. The AC was refreshing in the room as well. I would give this hotel a 10/10 for the price.

Excellent 10.0
Pros: Good breakfast and clean comfy room.
Cons: Not applicable
Good 7.1
Pros: The location and the price of the hotel was nice! The staff was friendly and I enjoyed that they had free breakfast. Checking in and out we’re both easy, which I appreciated.
Cons: Our room had a musty basement smell and some humidity, as if it had flooded during the rain. Their complimentary breakfast was so/so, but I thought it could’ve been better. I also saw a bug crawling across our floor in our room.
Mediocre 3.0
Pros: It had a pool and was close to our destination.
Cons: remote did not work, staff did not offer to come fix it. room was not cleaned, found coins, makeup smudges, and medication under the bed. carpet was wet in one spot. the hot tub was extremely hot and not able to be adjusted, but no sign to let you know.
Good 7.9
Pros: Breakfast had wide variety and was sufficient. Generous time for breakfast likely allowed the small space ample opportunity not to be overwhelmed by travelers. Large TV. Clean. Practical rooms/ efficient - microwave, fridge, hair dryer, iron. Quiet.
Cons: The towels were on the small size. The bathroom was small but the large door made it smaller and felt cramped in the bathroom. (even for 5'3" and 130 lb person) Lamp outlets did not work. Bit of a musty smell.
Good 7.5
Pros: The hotel was a good value at State Fair time! Everything went smoothly from check in to check out. I loved the hotel’s security system, and I felt safe while staying with family in the busy airport area of town. Jay, at the front desk, was very nice and helpful. I would stay again and would recommend to a friend.
Okay 5.0
Pros: Location and airport shuttles
Okay 5.8
Cons: Staff couldn’t figure how to run my card for the room then called at 12am to have me pay cash for the room after locking me out of my room
Poor 1.0
Pros: Location
Cons: I searched Date, location, star rating and specifically *PET-FRIENDLY*. I reserved, went to the hotel and pets are not allowed. So my family did not stay at the hotel and our clothes ended up getting soaked because of thunderstorms and being out on a ra
Poor 1.0
Pros: the only thing good about this hotel was the location
Cons: it smelled like mold and there was some on the shower curtain. The lady cleaned the room, but didn't bother to replace the toilet paper. there carpet was wet in the hallways. I was barely in the room and they decided to charge me $200 claiming we smoked!
