Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 229 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Service We had excellent accommodations at your Holiday Inn Express by Drake in Des Moines, IA. Your staff was so kind and helpful. We have stayed for years at your Inn and will continue to do so way into the future. Keep up the good work!! I would also like to add that Michael, the General Manager, went over and above in helping us. Kudos to him. June 19, 2015
