Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BulldogMama Great location for visiting Drake
Just a short walk from Drake's campus, the Holiday Inn Express doesn't offer a lot of frills. But, the rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Drake_Parent Good value, close to Drake, friendly staff
We've stayed here a few times in connection with our Drake University student. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast is nothing special but on par with similar class of hotels.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Johnfromdenver Great Place To Stay!
This is one of the best properties that I have had the pleasure to stay at. The entire staff is friendly and helpful. I was greeted by Julian at the front desk and he was fantastic, very pleasant and efficient. Which was extremely appreciated after a long day. Very clean and comfortable room. The breakfast was great and the area was very clean and well stocked. Checkout was a breeze as my receipt was slid under my door in a rapid check-out envelope.
I will stay here whenever I am in Des Moines!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Coop-2 Pleasant Staff, but NOT Holiday Inn standards
The bathroom in particular was aged and outdated. Even the door would not close. The mattress was pieced together like an oreo cookie. I've never seen this before when I check the bed for evidence of bedbugs. Over priced!

This property has a great location but needs attention. Clean and quiet but overall appearance getting shabby.

Good place, neighborhood is questionable. Interesting bar with punk night and great burrito spot nearby. Hotel itself was great.

I'm not a negative person but I was DEEPLY let down with this stay. The lobby was so loud I was only able to get about 2 hours of sleep. Sound transfers through to the room as if the walls were paper. I will not be staying at this property again.

I have stayed at this property before for business with good service so I chose this hotel due to the proximity of Greenwood Park and the Central Trails Mtn Bike system. In town for a Mountain Bike Race and this was closest to the venue. Excellent room and amenities, especially the REFRIGERATOR with a FREEZER compartment too! So nice! Thank you and will look forward to staying here again for business or leisure.
