Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WFB mom Great hotel close to Drake
This is 'the' hotel to stay at when visiting Drake... accessible with adequate free surface parking. Good variety of breakfast items in the morning to get you going. The Drake Diner is next door for ease of evening meals.
The bed was very comfortable with soft and firm pillow choices. The wifi was rapid fast and easy connections. Wish the TV had a few more sporting stations but then we were not in the room much.
A great hotel that just needs more rooms as it fills fast for happenings on and around the campus.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by CMLIN Duty people in front desk, should be friendly
The attitude should be better when you meet international vistor. I didn't like the guy serviced my check-in in Jan 20th night. But when I check-out in Jan 21st monring, the duty person is good. Sorry, one person will effect the entire quality.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paul Convenient to Drake University and downtown area
This is a great choice for those wishing to visit or drop off someone at Drake University but not stay in a dorm.
It's walkable to almost anything you need and right next door to the excellent Drake Diner - which has a decent bar. Nearby also is an outstanding sushi bar - Haiku - which is a bit farther away, but has more upscale dining and always excellent service. Parking is also convenient.
We stop here each time we visit our son - unless it's full, in which case the Holiday Inn near Mercy Hospital is a great second choice for us, although that area can be noisier due to the hospital traffic (ambulances, etc.)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by psoas53 Great Place to stay
We have now stayed at this Holiday Inn Express twice. We have been very pleased with how well we were accommodated by hotel staff, and their friendliness. My only concern was that the water in the bathtub drained slowly, and that on the last day we stayed, the carpet was not vacuumed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by norbac Excellent stay at the Holiday Inn Express DM @ Drake
Great hotel! Very clean and large rooms; comfortable beds, clean bathroom, and HD TV! Complimentary breakfast was awesome too. It's within walking distance of Drake's campus, so no need to drive there. The room rates were also quite comparable (if not better) to other hotels in the same category. All in all, a highly recommended hotel!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Prudent One Convienent for Drake Families
Hotel is extremity convenient for Drake family visits. Property is dated and needs remodeling. For the same price and a 5-10 minute drive, you can find a better property. This is not a property you want to spend time. You simply stay here for convenient access to Drake.
