This hotel is showing it's age just a bit but is still good value for the money, close to the interstate, close to several restaurants, and is staffed by very good people.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CricketGeneral Amenities and service are excellent
While the amenities and service were excellent, the bed was not conducive to my back and woke up with lower back pain. This happens in different beds in even the top quality of hotels, and am sure this one room was just a glitch since I've typically had good stays in Holiday Inn Express. Great location and access, little far out to Des Moines but has highway access.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jk5824 Quiet, easy to get to
We stayed here 2 nights while attending the Iowa State Fair, August 2015. It's very close to I-80 Altoona exit and our room was facing the interstate. Even so, I was VERY pleased we weren't bothered by traffic noise at all. The bed was very comfortable, room was clean and we were very happy with the selection of food offered at complimentary breakfast. During the fair, some breakfast items were even offered late evening. The only thing we were unhappy about is that ALL the motels raise their rates during the time frame of the Iowa State Fair....how is that ethical ?
