Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by shademanbt Great location, comfortable but needs updating
This is not as up to date as most Holiday Inn Express properties. Staff is great, the rooms are comfortable and the location near Drake U, coffee shops, etc. is convenient. However, the property is dated and a big issue is the lack of automatic sliding front doors. You have to go through two sets of manual doors to get into the lobby; not an issue for me, but many senior citizens were arriving and leaving and had quite a bit of trouble navigating their luggage through the doors. Other than that, it's a good place to stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by plouise Convenience to Drake and helpful staff
We enjoyed the clean, quiet, comfortable room and the tasty breakfast. Good coffee and several tea choices available in the lobby around the clock.

We were in town for a girls weekend and found this hotel to be centrally located to the things we wanted to see. The diner next door to the hotel was fabulous.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by joker91 Nice and clean
The rooms were clean. The breakfast needed to be fresher as the food was dried and appeared to have been sitting out for awhile but was still able to find alternative and had enough food.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by seein the country Great midtown location close to Drake
An adequate motel clean with attentive responsive staff. Very quiet during our stay but sure that would change with a full house during athletic events. Would like an offering of king size beds. Breakfast and coffee were good.
On the down side this motel needs refreshing. Hallway carpet was old, stairway carpet worn out and a slight damp musty smell was apparent in the hallways. Fortunately the room was fine.

Noisy AC unit made impossible to get a good-night sleep. They stuck us in the handicap room, which made it very inconvenient for regular folk to use the bathroom. Fitness center is small and inadequate. The equipment is poorly maintained. On the upside, it's just within walking distance to Drake campus and free breakfast, but nothing out of the ordinary...
