My family and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Airport Conference Center in Des Moines over the Thanksgiving holiday, while we visited family. Although we had a AAA rate, it was still more expensive than other similar hotels where we could have stayed. The room was quiet and away from the pool, like I'd requested, and it was very clean....

Thank you for your opinion, I am glad we were able to accomodate your requests for a room away from our Tropical Courtyard during such a busy season. Many guests also comment on the cleanliness of our rooms as you did and I appreciate your noting it. Although not all of our heavily discounted rates include breakfast it is great...

Room is ok, what you would expect for an older facility, furniture and decor is definitely outdated, but Im a more practical traveler, I don't need fancy to be happy. The staff however, does not seem to want to lift a finger to meet your requests. I was ordering food at the restaurant and two people ahead of me ordered...

Front desk staff was fast and friendly at check in. Rooms are clean and comfortable, especially the rooms that face the courtyard they are extra spacious. The restaurant offered decent breakfast and the bar had a wide variety of drink choices. The downside was the Wi-Fi was incredibly slow, to the point where it was almost unusable. Also had hot...

I flew into Des Moines, so finding a hotel close to the airport was important along with it being a Holiday Inn. Our family likes Holiday Inns and have not had any major problems with them. We are member of their club, as well, so we get bonus points for staying there. The hotel was very easy to find and...

The desk staff was wonderful. I was offered a "Pack and Go Breakfast." I had a very early morning flight.Airport shuttle was perfect. Pool area was beautiful and inviting. Nice lounge! Rooms are clean and spacious but updating is needed. Only problem was lack of hot water in the morning. I will definitely stay at this hotel again.

Most of this grade hotel are just fine. The room was clean, well appointed. I was basically here to spend the night with an early departure at the airport. It was right across the street! The front desk personnel were very good and made you feel very welcomed.

Not quite a five, but close to it. Let's face it, all these places are pretty much the same, with some marginally better than others. This one falls into that "better" category. Rooms are large and clean, well-appointed, staff is friendly and efficient, but then so are almost all the others. The breakfast though, was probably the best of any...

I'll bet around ten years ago this was a really nice hotel, but unfortunately it doesn't appear that it has had any updates since then. The décor was dated and the hallways smelled musty with scuffs on the walls. All that being said- staff were friendly. The pool was warm and a good size to swim in, and the hot...

If you decide to stay in the Holiday Inn hotel, it's a good option, swimming pool, large rooms, great service, a very nice eating area near to the swimming pool area. Nice sunroof, I just love it. I could stay a little longer, no time!
