Easy off the Interstate. I tow a trailer, parking kinda tight, but I managed. Check-in was flawless, rooms were as reserved. Clean, everything in working order. Wi-if was S.L.O.W. Did not use the pool, but did walk across the parking lot for a terrific dinner @ Ruby Tuesday. This is the 6th time I've overnight end in Urbandale, and the...

We stayed at this Holiday Inn Express for 1 night in our way to Minnesota. The hotel was nice and clean and the staff very friendly. Our room was typical holiday inn express. Clean an comfortable. There was a Keurig coffee maker in the room. Breakfast was good with plenty of food to choose from.

The room was very nice and clean. The amenities provided by the hotel and staff were top notch. Only issue I had was that there was a Little League tournament going on somewhere and many of the participants stayed at the hotel the same night I did, and there were lots of doors slamming and kids running around. Fortunately for...

This hotel had one of the higher ratings on Trip Advisor so we decided to stay here for a short weekend stay. It was very clean (and I am sort of a freak about cleanliness at hotels). The showers showed no previous signs of use. The floors were spotless. The bedding was entirely white and showed no stains or areas...

We just finished a weekend stay at this new hotel. We found the entire place to be very clean. All staff were friendly. The complimentary breakfast was average but did have a pancake machine which my kids loved. The pool area is very nice and has both a pool and a hot tub. When we went down this morning for...

This hotel is well kept, quiet, clean and offers easy access to the Interstate, and local restaurants. Desk staff were very helpful. Breakfast is provided and had more variation than some other Holiday Inn Expresses I have stayed at recently. Nice stay and if you ask, they honor corporate and agency rates.

We had a quick overnight stay here. The motel is reasonably easy to get to off of the interstate. I liked its proximity to a Target which was just down the frontage road. The breakfast was typical for Express' and better than average for similar motels. Rooms were as expected, nice and clean. Overall a newer motel and worth the...

The hotel staff were incredibly friendly and professional. Our room -- just me and my husband -- was big and clean and fantastic when my nieces and nephews stopped by to play games. The complimentary breakfast was nice, and the pool area was great for the kids (my nieces and nephews). Great hotel for a great price.
