Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TJOR Poor Service
While I truly enjoyed my visit to Des Moines, Iowa and found the majority of people there to be kind and welcoming - the staff at the Holiday Inn were the exception. They were hassled and unhappy. The shuttle driver was rude and actually lied about the service they provide - when I did finally convince her to take me just two miles down the road - I feared for my life with her driving skills - And Traffic in Des Moines is tame! The hotel itself is aging and unkept. The food was atrocious - just YUCK! If you are unlucky enough to have to stay here for more than one night to be close to the airport, rent a car - you'll want to get away.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AJD13 Conference Stay
I stayed at this hotel in June for a conference. The meeting facilities were good, had a little issue with the audio(not sure if it was the conference sponsors or the hotels fault).
The water pressure in the shower was very poor unless you enjoy burning all of your skin off. You had to have it on scalding hot to get pressure. The pillows were comfortable. The TV was nice but it was very slow in changing channels and would alter the brightness on its own.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Amy18 Nice place
This was a nice hotel. Our room smelt like it was previously a smoking room turned into a non-smoking room. The pool area is nice. The hotel offers a shuttle and restaurant. Right across the street from airport.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jo24 FRONT DESK
The people at the front desk could not be more helpful. I didn't realize that when I booked a room by the pool that it would actual on the border of the inside pool. I called the front desk and the lady couldn't be more accommodating switching my room to a quieter area within a few minutes. Great service is all you want after a day of traveling and that's what we got.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Geily Excellent rooms and friendly staff
We were looking for a place close to the airport since we had to be at the airport at 4:30 in the morning .The staff provided a couple of sack lunches since we were not going to be there for breakfast. A real plus for me was being able to park our car in the back lot and know that it was in a safe place. It was really nice to be able to have someone drop us off early in the morning at the airport. Many thanks to Holiday Inn for your personal service while we were there!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by travellight Great Service and Location for Air Travelers
We have grown accustomed to clean rooms and friendly service at Holiday Inns. And a wakeup call. But how great it is to be able to park your vehicle in their parking lot when you travel by air to another destination. Our friends who went with us said they would remember Holiday Inn for their next air travel from the near-by airport. We greatly appreciated the shuttle service to and from the airport, especially when the driver on our return, in the brutally cold temperatures, took us directly to our vehicle. A feather for your cap!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Truck Updating required
I had a good experience but the facility and room is slightly outdated and updating the rooms especially fwould be a good idea... The retracable clothes line in the shower pre-dates the hotel.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by defender Worst beds I have ever had
Price should have been at least half of what it was. I asked for a better bed, and that never happened. i inch of soft, then hard as a brick. Couldn't wait to get to a restfull bed, even my truck seat.Left room for 2 hours, and still didn't get cleaned.
A lot of parking problems. I understand construction, however half of lot was tied up making myself park about 3 blocks away and walk in, or go across the street and pay for parking. I wouldn't recommend facilities to any convention.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by urnecie Great stay near the Des Moines airport
I always stayed here prior to my early morning flight back south. The staff is courteous and friendly. They have a bag breakfast to take along (I leave prior to the breakfast provided). The van driver is always wonderful - picking me at the airport when I drop off the car, taking me to/from dinner and then back to the airport by 5:00 AM.

When I called to make a reservation, the staff member was very helpful and courteous. Upon check-in, the staff members were friendly and attentive, also giving help to nearby restaurants and airport shuttle option. We chose this hotel for the location next to the airport. Being a service-member, I also received a great price!
