In choosing to stay at the Holiday Inn Drake University location, you will feel some comforts of home when staying in the rooms. Rooms are immaculate, beds are comfortable and plenty of clean towels for your bathrooms. Employees were so nice and ever so helpful. I was in a rush to get back home the next day for a meeting with my boss and I forgot three pieces of clothing in my room, they were so kind as to mail them back to me. So I would definitely recommend this in particular hotel location to stay. They really look out for your needs......:)

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by baseball John Uncomfortable bed and pillows - Old Hotel with Pricey Room
The room was smelly. The pillows were soft and old. I had to go to the front desk to ask for a firm pillow. He found one and was very kind. The bathroom reminded me of cheap hotels that I stayed at when I was a bit younger. Old bathroom, old fixtures, could not open the door to use the facilities, tv was old and not working properly. However, I will say that your front desk staff were very kind and welcoming and trying to help during our stay. I could not believe (for the price we paid), this was one of the most unclean and poorly attended to locations that I have visited. Unfortunately, a lot of upgrades are necessary for this property. I will not plan to attend a Holiday Inn at any time in the near future. This was actually unbelievable for the price paid. I believe, I should be reimbursed for one of the worst nights sleep in a hotel in all of my travels these past several years

Pleasant stay for a weekend get away. Close to downtown but more reasonable in price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by peace woman Felt secure and could sleep!
Staff was welcoming and helpful! I was apprehensive about my stay as I drove to Des Moines. This stay was a delightful surprise. I was able to navigate the route from the motel to the Events Center easily. Holiday Inn Express turned my anxiety to comfort and a feeling of security.

A little worried about the hotel at first since I was told it may be in a higher crime area, however it turned out to be a wonderful experience. Never saw anything, hotel grounds very well kept up
