I received great service from the day manager. She was extraordinarily helpful and it made my stay even better. I would like to say thank you to her and bike on.

The wait at the front counter was long.
My room keys didn't work so I had to wait to rekey them.
The lock on my door didn't lock, so I had to wait for the repair man before I could go out to eat.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kapnkirk comfortable and convenient
This was a very clean and comfortable hotel and very conveniently located to restaurants and services. I have stayed at several Holiday Inns around the country and this one was at or above my expectations for Holiday Inn.

Great visit except for the times when the entire floor vibrated for minutes at a time. Somewhat unusual experience. Staff was great and very helpful.

I have stayed here before, the staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast that we had was nice and Claudia worked so hard keeping everything full and emptying trash receptacles, and the room was full.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 1Backache Not what I expected
Have stayed in many HIE's. This one was very clean.
The front desk staff were great. The problem we had was the bed.
It was too well used, not comfortable at all. Unfortunately the hotel was full, so we could not be moved to another room. One other small frustration was that the decaf coffee was not kept full. My ratings are for this visit only, and may not be representative of how things would be on another visit. Love the breakfast especially the signature cinnamon rolls.

Kudos to Andrew and Josh!! They both made our 4 night stay outstanding during the National Softball tournament in Nevada. They both were accommodating and friendly with our entire team staying at the hotel. They displayed efficiency, kindness, and ease with any situation they encountered.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SoftballMomU14 Great place to stay for youth sports teams
We were late in getting our hotel block for the USSSA World Series. Jennifer worked with us to come up with enough rooms for our team and was able to work within our budget. We were able to use the breakfast area for team gatherings. Hotel is within 5 - 10 min of the Prairie Ridge Sports Complex. Lots of restaurants and entertainment in the area. A very good choice.

Clean, need I say more? OK... Up to date, large room with tall ceilings. My 2 yr old LOVED the pool. Breakfast was out early, including milk, which I forgot to get enough of at 4am when my 2 yr old was screaming for milk. I would definitely stay there again - easy access to the interstate and I felt very safe in the neighborhood.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Omaha12345 Ankeny
Enjoyed our stay at HIE Ankeny, the interior could use a little bit of a facelift but that is a relatively minor complaint. The room was comfortable and spacious enough for my family of three.
On our visit the vending machines weren't working and the front desk person offered to run down the road to a gas station to get us some sodas. It meant alot that they offered to help and try to remedy the situation.
Breakfast was warm, plentiful and delicious

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by kim227 Chlorine, Chlorine, Chlorine
When we first arrived all you could smell was the chlorine. I booked the hotel room for 2 nights and asked then if the room was a tight squeeze for 3 kid's and 2 adults they said there was plenty of room when we opened the door we found out different, but we did find the staff very friendly, the chlorine was very strong in the pool area so we opened windows and that seemed to help, we will look else where when needing a room for the money we paid for 2 days.

king suite was great, plenty of tv options with direct tv....breakfast was very lacking, always low on food, condiments, coffee, etc, but typical HIE breakfast food. Fitness room small, 2 newer precor machines, crowded when hotel is full.
Close to airport, food, shops, interstate, etc

I enjoyed a very nice one night stay at this hotel. All staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was very good with scrambled eggs, bacon, warm cinnamon rolls and coffee along with the other usual continental food items. The location is nice too as we walked to the Outback restaurant just across the parking for supper.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jaynut Very helpful staff
The evening desk clerk at about 8 p.m. went out of his way to get some bread from the locked pantry so we could make toast for our sick daughter. The day desk clerk was very willing to hold my laptop computer so that I did not have to leave it either in my car or my room. There were good selections for breakfast, and the breakfast room lady was on top of things as items were used. The room was clean and comfortable.
As this motel is about 1/2 way between my daughter's home and ours, we will probably stay here again.
The only "negative" - I was not recognized at any time as a Priority Club member that I can remember.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by stever455 comfortable bed and service was v. good
very nice room and bed as normally found at Holiday Inn express. the heatger/A-C systsem was not the greatest as one couldnt get a consistent temperature. The least good experience was the rate charged, which was excessive and non-negotiable - not very friendly to long time customers of HI- Ex.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bigb123 Great stay for the most part
First of all, you have an outstanding staff. They were very knowledgeable about the surrounding area, and made a spot on recommendation for a restaurant. The room was clean and comfortable and I did get a good night's rest.
My only concern was with the breakfast. The bagels and muffins were both rock hard and weren't edible. Also, the scrambled eggs were made so small that it required a spoon to eat them.
Other than that, you have a great facility with top notch staff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MidnighVoice Truly excellent hotel
Glancing through the other reviews I was surprised to see the hotel has such a low rating. Then I noticed that one review that had raved about the hotel gave it all 1's instead of 5's (probably an understandable mistake), and a second disliked the fact that it was a non-smoking hotel (I didn't know that there were still smoking hotels!). For me, it is a good example of a HIE with excellent staff moving it up to the top tier. I would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BigA71848 Wonderful Welcome after a VERY long day
We always stay with HIE unless there is not one available in an area we're staying and we've stayed with this HIE in Ankeny, IA many times before. While most of the time we call ahead and have reservations, this time was a bit different. We didn't know how far we would make it on our Thanksgiving trip to MN to be with our middle daughter and her family. It had been a very long day as we'd placed my Mother in a nursing care facility in central KS that morning as well as dealt with some "other family issues" concerning that placement and we late getting left to head "North". We got the HIE at about 7:30 in the evening. I walked in & handed the young lady behind the desk my Priority Club Card and said "I hope you have a room"! Well they did, and when she found I'd stayed there in the past #and I must have looked like it had been a long day# she up-graded us to a Suite! Talk about making our day and talk about another reason we will ALWAYS stay with HIE in Ankeny or whereever we travel!
