Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JAW88 Great stay after bad travel
My travels the week I stayed at this Holiday Inn was awful. But when I walked in the people at the front desk were very pleasant. It was the first time in a couple of days that someone wanted to help me. All of my travel headaces were gone and I could now do the work I was here for. They surpassed my expectations. If you go to Des Moines staying here is a must.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by earlmc Great Breakfast and good shower
I usually rate rooms basted on the shower. I enjoy a good shower and I had one at the Ankeny Holiday Inn Express. I am over 6 feet tall. Not real tall, but tall enough that many showers make me stoop to wash my hair. There was a good flow of water and the shower head was high enough to make taking a shower enjoyable.
I really liked the breakfast available for my family. Everyone found several things they liked and we went away full and happy

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WRBeatty Good Hotel for the Money
The room was really nice. it was clean, modern and bright. The breakfast was your average hot breakfast items but they tasted good.
I'd recommend the staff spruce up the main lobby area and elevator areas. They were very plain. I'd go so far as to say sterile and uninviting lacking any decor or furniture.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by svote31 Most comfortable beds around
I look for Holiday Inn Express every time I travel out of the state. I always know they will have the most comfortable beds/pillows/rooms. I love the desk lamps with easy access to power outlets. I have also noticed that every Holiday Inn I have stayed at have excellent sound proof walls. I also enjoy the comfort in the waiting/dining areas. You are able to gather in a common area with family and friends and feel at home. The only reasons my review isn't a perfect score is because I feel the bathtubs could use an upgrade and the pool/hot tub had so much chlorine it burned our eyes.

This was a nicely located Holiday Inn. Plenty of food establishments and shopping close by but yet it was off the beaten path a bit. Clean rooms/lobby and friendly staff.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kimmyl444 Clean and newly updated hotel
We had a great stay (both times) at this hotel. The rooms are updated, clean and comfortable. The beds are very comfortable, and I'm pretty picky. You get an assortment of different pillow types like other HI Express hotels. The breakfast provided has a wide variety of foods, including hot foods. The pool is clean and not too cold. All in all, a good stay.

One thing we did find, was that it was a little difficult to locate the motel, but our GPS helped.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by thejohnson's Excellent Customer Service and a Great Property!!!!
We couldn't have been happier with the service during our stay! From the moment of check in the staff was very accommodating and went above and beyond to make you feel welcome! The room was excellent and the beds were incredibly comfy, I think I was out like a light as soon as my head hit the pillow! Oh, and the pillows were awesome!!! I love big squishy pillows!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by TerriCoonie1 Found the bed to be very hard....
After my Son's wedding that evening, I was ready to get a good night's sleep, but the bed was very hard, I tossed and turned all night.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ThatHypnotist Pricey, but comfortable in every way.
The reviews for various properties in the Ankeny area varied widely. I decided to play it safe and stay at the HI Express. The over night cost of was easily $60 above other properties, but the quality of the stay and property were what you expect from Holiday Inn properties.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by One of many Mikes Great comfortable and convenient stay
Enjoyable stay, great accommodations.
Didn't have a lot of time to enjoy the hotel, but when we were there it was great. The spa was wonderful for relaxing after a busy day. Primarily used this hotel as a launch pad to visit friends we hadn't seen since last year.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by IBG BILL Great Place to Stay
This was the best experience at a Holiday Inn Express that have had. The room was clean, the place was nice, I was greeted with a wonderful smile from the young girl behind the counter that was friendly. The TV was a LG and the service was Direct TV.
Less Positive was the food selection or lack of information for the food. I can not eat gluten and their was only bananas, and apples for me. I was unsure if any of the other food had gluten.
Over all this was a great Stay, Thank you.

Excellent stay for all our out of town relatives. We booked the rooms for Iowa State Graduation Weekend.
One of our nieces did leave her Pillow Pet in the room and she was sad because no one turned it in.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sixandcounting Nice rooms and friendly service
Stayed with our 4 kids for a wedding and it worked out great. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful in getting us the right room for our family. Remodel is very nice. It would have been nice to have it completed before our stay and breakfast area was a bit disheveled but it was still good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ljk56 Clean comfortable Rooms
The room was clean and comfortable with extra plush bedding. The breakfast was great, and was well stocked. We also stayed the night before in Oklahoma City and were disappointed that this hotel charged about $30 more for the night than Oklahoma City did for an identical room. A bit pricey especially since it was under construction at the time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ExpressYes CLEAN room!
I'm very particular when it comes to clean hotel rooms - our room was VERY clean! Spacious and comfortable. Bed was comfortable, with 'pillow options' (hard or soft)!!!
Facilities con- there was no hot water available for tea in the breakfast room, as well there was one 1 fruit option. There was no bathroom available downstairs/lobby area. And only 1 elevator. These issues maybe be due to the construction that was happening at the time.
