Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by desmoinescollegemom Damp carpeting not a great experience
The room was run down and the carpeting throughout the room was damp making the stay very uncomfortable wonder about the health conditions and cleanliness. The management explained that it was humidity and offered a dehumidifier.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Student_2015 Good for Drake visitors
Good place to stay for students, families, faculty visiting Drake University. Literally a seven-minute walk to central campus; very convenient.

The air conditioner leaked soaking a large swath of the rug. I notified the staff three times but the only recourse was to stick an ice bucket under the A/C. I dumped it several times but it continued to spill over because it filled so fast. If I get an airborne illness, I'll be pretty sure where it came from.

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.

I really did enjoy the location of this hotel. Upon my arrival there were no problems.
Upon entering my room there was somewhat of a musty odor. The room appeared to be clean. The bathroom needed a little work. There were a few things in the bathroom shower that were extremely loose and there appeared to be some loose tiles underneath the sink.
I wish the room would have had a mini fridge and a microwave. I need to say...I stayed for two nights. The first day I was gone most of the day and I had forgotten a valuable item in the bathroom and when I returned my item was still there. That says a lot about the staff. Thank you.
Although there were some minor things it would not and did not prevent me for having a good nights sleep and the location was wonderful as I was there for college summer orientation.

This was a great stay after driving for 10 1/2 hours. Michael ( Manager ) was awesome along with the front desk staff. Great food close by and very secure parking areas.
Thanks for the hospitality.
