Was nice but the staff was super friendly and helpful

Front desk staff was really nice and helpful and the rooms looked nice.

The walls were PAPER thin. We could hear one neighbor actually snoring and another put the toilet seat down in the middle of the night. TV at a normal volume in the next room the next morning sounded like it was in ours. Very disconcerting regarding privacy.

Place was good. Staff was great especially the cleaning team they were super nice. The beds kinda sucked not that comfortable.

My stay was very comfortable. The clerk who checked me in was most helpful, courteous and friendly. I would highly recommend this hotel!

The beds are made terribly. They look wrinkled and just not at all what you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express. We wondered the first night if the sheets were even clean as there was some small fibers sticking to the underside of one of the pillow cases. The next day, we asked if they would be change the sheets and pillow cases. This time, the maid even tucked large portions of the bedskirt into the mattress. We had no hot water the first night. Had to leave the water running in the sink and tub for about 15 minutes before it started to get warm enough to attempt to use. Called down and they suggested leaving the water run a little longer and they said they'd have maintenance check out the water heater. Next day when we complained again, was told this room on 3rd floor has trouble with hot water in getting to it in winter. They gave us another room. Water was better. They still don't know how to make a bed though. Inside pool was not heated well. Very cold to swim in. Jets didn't work in the hot tub. Came back after 3:00 pm one day and room hadn't been cleaned yet. They were still cleaining rooms at 6:00 pm.

Very clean and super comfy wish I had some of those soft pillows for home they were awesome staff was very helpful and curtious

I was very pleased with my visit, this hotel was clean and the staff courteous. The breakfast was good as well. Fresh and well maintained. Highly recommended if you need a place to stop.

We stopped here as a stopover on a drive through Iowa. The staff was friendly and the pool and hot tub well maintained. While the hotel was non smoking there was a smell that suggested that was a recent change.

My family and I stayed 2 nights at this hotel and had a great time. Clean rooms, pool was great for kids, and breakfast was more then we could've asked for.

Great stay with a fabulous breakfast, staff was great, close to a good Chili's

All was well with the exception of elevator smelling funny, and a squeaky bed!

Although the reasons for our trip were rather sad (illness of a very close friend), we were able to come back to the hotel and have a quiet, restful evening. It was quiet, the room was nice and dark, and we felt better in the morning when we awoke. The free breakfast was a feast compared to other hotels! We actually had cheese omelettes, pancakes, waffles, fruit, ham, and delicious hot cinnamon rolls. TERRIFIC!

Everything was great! Friendly staff, clean and comfortable room, great breakfast and exceptional value for all of it. Very pleased and will recommend and not hesitate to stay again.

I had a positive experience at this establishment. Check-in was quick, as the hotel staff had already assigned me a room and key. Additionally, when I asked about eating options, they provided me with a light snack as most eating establishments were closed. The room was nice and cozy and the breakfast, while not extensive, had something to accommodate most tastes and so served its purpose. I would definitely stay here again.

We enjoyed our stay very much. Clean, Quiet & friendly staff. Would recommend.

I agree with other reviewers that the breakfast is better than most motels. The staff is both helpful & friendly. Could use a microwave &/or fridge though.

Dear Guest, I'm so glad that you found our staff friendly and helpful. I was disappointed to read that you found our beds uncomfortable. In the next month our hotel will be undergoing a renovation. I would invite you to come back and try us again then. Thank you for staying with us.
