Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Welcoming We had been on the road for 12 hours when we arrived at the HI Express in Altoona. We were welcomed by the person at the front desk and were in our room within 10 minutes. It was just what we needed after a long day. Great breakfast too! September 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good site for overnight stay. We checked in without a prior reservation. The price was reasonable. Beds and pillows very good. Good breakfast the following morning. All went well. September 8, 2014

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Location The location was perfect for My horse trainer, close to the track. September 3, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice place When checking in staff was nice. Had to find elevator on our own. Room was much bigger that we expected. Didn't like the ice bucket in the bathroom. Was quiet & slept well. The entrance to the parking lot should be marked better. It was raining hard & couldn't see any entrance. Ended up driving all the way around. Overall would stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service, friendly staff Great night, glad to hear about the shuttle to the casino. September 2, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by front desk employee The lady at the front desk was very helpful and just quite friendly. She made one feel that your business was appreciated. September 1, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Great service love the pillows Holiday Inn Express has always been one of our favorite choices in traveling. This hotel is pleasant but the only draw back was the rooms are rather damp which made it rather uncomfortable. The beds/pillows are great as can be expected at all Holiday Inn Expresses and the free breakfast can be beat. August 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by breakfast add gravy to your breakfast bar to go with the biscuits. everything else was great. August 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great find and great service I was driving through Iowa on my way to California from NYC. After driving 14 hours non-stop, I found this hotel. It was a godsend as I had checked another hotel in the area and was frightened by the condition of room. When I arrived at HI-Altoona, it was a relief to find that the hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms and lobby are clean and bright. August 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by best I have ever had Desk clerk was very personable and helpful. I would stay here again. August 24, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Room Rooms were clean, requests made on line for roll out bed were pre arranged by staff. there were issues at check in as the staff couldn't find all of my reservations as I had booked 3 rooms. The pool area was not as clean, and the hot tub was out of order for one day of our stay, and the room was so filled with chlorine fumes you couldn't stay in the room very long to enjoy yourself. August 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good night sleep The most comfortable beds and pillows, great breakfast and clean rooms. Also the customer service was great, Thanks for the great stay. Will and have stayed there before and will again. Easy to get to also. August 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Place To Stay The Holiday Inn Express in Altoona off of I80 is a nice place to stay. Especially if you are attending the Iowa State Fair. It is very convenient! There is a Casey's right across the street, access to the fair is quick, as is access to places to eat (go down Adventurland Drive and there are plenty to chose from!) The room was nice but the only thing was that the air inside seemed "moist". The fan never shut off on the unit unless you turned the whole thing off. Not sure if it was like that in every room but it was in ours. The breakfast times could be extended a little to allow someone to sleep in and the staff could be friendly as far as saying good morning or excuse me when putting items on the breakfast bar. All in all a nice place to stay and we plan on staying there again when we venture to the fair! August 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by State Fair Trip Very nice hotel. Quiet even though located close to the interstate. August 19, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by High priced for what we got We had a "suite" which was just a little larger than a regular room. It was just big enough to pull out the loveseat into a bed. Small refrigerator and sink outside the bathroom. Otherwise, the hotel and the room were clean. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was good. Air conditioner got the room cool enough, which is very important to us. August 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by loved our room We stayed 4 nights at start of IA State Fair and even during busy time we found the hotel staff friendly, hotel clean and environment very comfortable. We like a little firmer bed but we will stay again. August 15, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great service Everyone was helpful and courteous. Room was very nice w/adequate towels, etc. We had to keep the air conditioner on very cold to get the dampness out of the room. Was kind of annoying. Beds were comfortable and the not much noise in the hallways. The hotel was close to restaurants, which was convenient. Breakfast was very good and nice and warm. Check out was easy. August 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great location to Adventureland After a mix up during my reservation, the staff was WONDERFUL helping me straighten things out. Stayed 2 nights for a family fun weekend. Conveniently close to interstate and Adventureland. Wonderful variety of items for breakfast. Clean room and quiet stay. Will definitely come back again. August 12, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by No refrigerator or microwave Comfortable bed and good location. Were disappointed that the rooms did not have a refrigerator or microwave. Most upscale hotels and mid level hotels include them in their rooms. Was overpriced in comparison with other hotels in this location. The breakfast was so so. The staff was excellent and the rooms were nice size. August 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by close to the interstate We stayed here one night on our way to Rapid City. It was close to the interstate and very confortable. August 9, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Service Originally contacted the manager for a block of rooms for my nieces wedding and she was great to assist us with this. Very friendly and willing to work with what we needed. We thought the rooms would be literally blocked together on same floor, however this was not the case. The breakfast bar was just adequate, would of loved more choices and for it to be kept full during service hours. August 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Relaxing visit Pleasant atmosphere and responding staff. Breakfast was tasteful. August 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Service We came from Charlotte Nc to Des Moines to attend the AAU Junior Olympics. What a treat! Breakfast was fantastic! They actually served hot breakfast, The kids are still talking about the pancake maker, After a long day at Drake University. It was a pleasure to come back to a clean room and friendly staff. The indoor pool was refreshingly cold and the hot tub was clean as well as HOT. If we ever come back to Des Moines IA we will stay here. August 4, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable stay a little pricey Okay stay, decent breakfast., comfortable room, lacks fridge or microwave in unit. Would recommend. August 2, 2014
