Hard to put lipstick on a pig

Average Rating

Very old hotel that is starting to get a facelift. Location is pretty good, close to the events center (walkable), but also right next to the interstate and there were a LOT of sirens all night. The area to the north is sketchy and the fairly heavy security presence at night is not confidence-inspiring.
The lobby has been completely renovated...

We visited Des Moines from Cedar Rapids for a friends wedding. We had a place to stay for free but instead decided to splurge on a hotel room for the night. We used Hotwire like usual for a nicer hotel. We were SO disappointed. The receptionist was incredibly rude. There were only 9 floors and only two of the three...

I was horrified to find a BED BUG in my bed. I looked up bed bug photos to be sure and I am positive it was an adult bed bug! Perhaps even worse, when I requested a room change the staff were not the slightest bit concerned or apologetic. They agreed to give me a new room, to their credit,...

This is the poorest Holiday Inn I have stayed in in a long time. I predict in a few years the franchise will change to Best Western or some off-name hotel, or perhaps be leveled. They are currently trying to renovate the hotel. The lobby is nice, but the rooms are dated, the walls are thin, the bathroom is old...

First, as a place to sleep away from home, it was fine. Bed was comfy, TV worked, shower worked, air worked, it was good in that regard.

Hotel is being refurbished - and it does need some investment. I have a hip that needs replacing, front desk person said room was a couple of doors from elevator - was 3/4 down the hall. Saturday morning 8:45am asked maid to return in 30 minutes, never made up room.

I would normally not go out of my way to give a bad rating to a hotel, but my family's experience was not good at all. First of all, after checking in, we quickly found out only one of the three elevators actually worked (and took forever to get to the second floor). Once we got to our room, the...

I stayed here a couple years ago, and the place seemed dated and kind of "off". I returned last week, and the atmosphere was nice, and the staff was kind enough to put us into rooms close to our friends. We had a very nice stay, and everyone was friendly. This is an inexpensive, convenient choice - it might not...

On the positive side, there was a small buffet breakfast included. We also had a nice view of the capitol area, free parking, and a medium indoor pool. On the down side, the room smelled very musty and had an incredibly loud fan that kept us up most of the night. The beds were way too soft. The windows were...

We stayed at The Holiday Inn Des Moines Downtown for three days while attending the Des Moines Metro Opera summer festival in July in Indianola. Our stay was entirely pleasant. The complimentary buffet breakfast was somewhat unusual in that the wait staff attended the tables with frequent water and coffee refills and other friendly attention. Parking is mostly close to...

We stayed at this hotel for a wedding. Ended up with over a dozen bites. We even captured two bed bugs, which we showed the staff. The hotel was great about the situation, but we still need to let people know. Beware!

the location was ideal for where we needed to go in Des Moines. The staff was amazing! Extremely helpful and very nice. The lobby/bar area was beautiful.\n\nI really wasn't impressed with the room itself. It was spotless but felt very dated.\n\nComfy beds, great view -overall was a pleasant stay at the location.

Great location to Event Center. Great shuttle service to downtown area resturants and bars.\n\nThat the shuttle quit running at 11:00 to downtown area. There is more than enough need to have the shuttle run until 2:00 A.M. I'm guessin the hotel doesn't like this idea because they like the business back at their own resturant bar after 11:00.

Lobby area recently updated, seemed nice.\n\nI-235 is way too noisy - which would not be too much of a problem if the HVAC system had a "fan on" option. If you had something to drown the noise, it would help. HVAC system needs updated, along with the rooms. This is a 2.5 star hotel at most.

The lobby had been remodeled.... gave a false front to the rest of the hotel.\n\nThe meeting room was shabby with flickering lights.The halls stank of cigarette smoke. Our room was supposed to be 2 queens, but was 2 doubles. The bathroom, the size of a 1960 bathroom, the toilet didn't function properly and the shower didn't drain.

Front desk staff were great! Housekeeper, (head of) was very helpful and pleasant and room and public areas very clean. Shuttle drivers were excellent. Perfect location.\n\nThey shut the air conditioning off completely during this time of year, so there is no way to cool the room at all. It was over 80 degrees in our room which made the stay not very pleasant at all!

The indoor pool was great. The lobby was very pretty and modern. The pillows were amazing and the room was clean - although on the smaller side.\n\nThe heating/cooling system only allows for the hotel to offer one at a time... so they were only offering heat. Even with our window open and the system in our room turned off, our room was 74 degrees. We were sweating!

Downstairs was new and renovated\n\nRooms old. Rooms to hot in November and could not cool down with Air due to old heating/cooling system, cooling not option in Winter months. Even opening the windows all night would not cool the room down.\n\nDon't sleep on side overlooking downtown. Interstate traffic is loud on that side.

The lobby to the hotel was beautiful, the breakfast area inviting, the breakfast buffet very good, the beds were comfortable.\n\n2 of the elevators were down so it was a long wait, about 10 minutes to get on. We tried to take the stairs from level one down to the lobby, but the stairway didn't go to the lobby, only to the garage. So we thought that was strange.\n\nThe breakfast is not free.

Mercy Campus - really hard to tell, but one of my kids has bites all over her shoulders and body. It started after our stay at this hotel on 8/3. I did not see any bugs, but may have overlook in our check.

On July 26, 2012, I stayed at the Holiday Inn Downtown Des MOines. When I woke up on Monday morning I turned on the light and got out of bed and saw a bug crawling across the bed. I grabbed it and killed it. It was hard to kill and I thought it was a tick. I then wondered if it was a bed bug and I looked it up on the internet and it was a perfect match. I took the bug and showed it to the front...

In response to the bed bug encounter from room 716, The Holiday Inn Downton had their pest inpection company come in and inspect the room upon her departure and they did not find any signs of bed bugs in that room. The Holiday Inn Downtown take this issue very seriously has is taking all the necessary precautions to prevent bed bugs in the hotel.

Room 716 was infested with bedbugs. I stayed in this room from Oct. 7-10. I am covered in welts and scratching myself to death. At first I thought it was an allergic reaction to something. I am terrified I brought them home with me. I reported bed bugs to the front desk at my departure. I also called the day before my departure to ask if there had been any reports of bed bugs and was assured...
