Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wrm11 Perfect Stay in Des Moines
I highly recommend this location if you are traveling to DesMoines. Only about 10 to 15 min's from the airport and right next to Drake and a small downtown area you could walk to.
The staff were superb and the hotel extremely clean and felt very up to date.
Overall - I plan on staying here when I travel to the area on business.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lilwilhelm Comfortable and affordable
Needed a comfortable place to stay for three nights with my elderly mother while in Des Moines conducting research for a book I am writing and she did research on genealogy. The room was comfortable, as was the bed and pillows. The location is excellent if needing to visit Drake University, less than a block away.
Good selection for breakfast. Very friendly staff.

Stayed here for a visit to Drake. Very clean. Staff was great. Location was perfect. More healthy, low fat protein options for breakfast would be nice.

The Holiday Inn Express at Drake University is a good value. It was clean and quiet. The breakfast selection was very good. There was a nice variety of cold and hot items. The freshly made pancakes were excellent. The court yard was a nice feature. The one thing I missed was having a pool.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrIcemaker1 Unexpected positive stay
I have to admit - I was a little concerned when I drove up to the building - this property appears to be a bit older, and in an urban setting. The lobby is a bit worn, and the parking lot sits a bit back from the building. My concern was unfounded - I was greeted by Ashly at the front desk, who promptly and courteously got me my room - which was on the second floor (the hotel only has 2 floors). The room looked like it had some remodeling done to it in the last few years, and was clean and quite comfortable. I discovered that sound came thru the walls / door (not excessive - it is an older building after all) so I left the fan on the heater running on low continuously thru the night and slept quite well. I had dinner at the diner next door - which was recommended when I checked in - and it was quite good (I would recommend it also!)
Good rate, and a good stay - I would recommend staying here if it is convenient to your travels.

This hotel is a wonderful gem in the Drake University area. Ample parking, clean and bright room, friendly staff. I was pleasantly surprised by my stay here, and would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for an accessible, clean and comfortable hotel.
