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.

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.

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.

Worn Out Holiday Inn

Average Rating

Sometimes Des Moines suffers from a lack of rooms, and when you have to book at the last minute, this is what is available - here's why. Rooms are outdated and worn, location is not really downtown, place just feels worn out. The breakfast was pretty bad too. Sorry Holiday Inn, but you need to put some money into this...

I stayed here for business on March 3-4, 2014. The ride from the Des Moines Airport is about 12-15 minutes.
The hotel lobby is very inviting. The front desk staff was extremely friendly and attentive.
In the lobby area is a nice sitting area with a fireplace and tv. Behind it is a computer/internet area with two computers and infoTouch...

Flip this Hotel Holiday Inn

I travel a lot and although a card carrying member for IHG, I will not be back to this property until it gets flipped. While the lobby, et al look nice and are inviting, it ends there. They go through a lot of Fabreeze here and it still does not mask the stench of cigarettes. C'mon Holiday Inn -- flip...

Just plain filthy dirty

Our non-smoking room reeked of cigarette smoke. When asked if we could have another room, we were told that this room was all they had available. Was in Des Moines for the weekend with my 13 year old son for his basketball tourney. I ALWAYS request non-smoking rooms. Room sucked due to the smell of the smoke. The lobby area...

Overall great-to-excellent experience. Very nice hotel, service was great, and we appreciated.

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...

If you're unlucky enough to be stuck in downtown Des Moines (it's actually not that bad), this is a great location to stay. There are numerous bars and restaurants within walking distance and we paid less than $75 for our room.
