Very friendly staff, good breakfast options even for covid, clean rooms. Decor in the rooms was a little weird, very stark, but once settled was fine.

Nice clean and new, will recommend to friends staff are friendly

Great hotel. Excellent staff and comfortable beds.

Great helpful staff. Shuttle service was seamless. Clean recently renovated facility.

We stayed here for one night. Staff had excellant customer service. Pool was warm and hot tub very inviting. However bed was very hard with a big slope. A couple of homeless people hollaring and screaming outside window kept me up. Breakfast was very good.

I visited this hotel to go to the Color Me Badd (important!!!) show at the last day of the Iowa state fair. To my surprise they had a free shuttle that went to the state fair buses! Wow cool! I had a great night sleep in the comfortable bed. Nice shower heads. Microwave and fridge in the room! To top it off they had a tremendous hot breakfast which really hit the spot after a long night. I really appreciate the designer who is modeling these hotels. Super trendy and cool. I always look to stay at Holiday Inn Expresses because I know what to expect!

New hotel. Room was excellent, very clean and bed was comfortable. Breakfast was average and staff was very polite. I will stay there again.

This new hotel is only a few minutes away from the Capitol. The room layout is perfect! I won't be staying anywhere else from now on. I loved the room. Breakfast was great.

We were in town for a tournament at the Iowa Events Center and the hotel provided a complimentary shuttle back and forth between the venue and the hotel - which was a very nice perk. Parking is free and the staff is amazingly friendly. The hotel is new and very clean. I'm pretty picky when it comes to hotels and was pleasantly surprised by the amenities at this hotel. A great stay overall.

Nice new facility and friendly helpful staff. Enjoyed my stay here with one exception that my room was on the "street" side of the hotel and I thought the noise pollution was to high for a new facility. Luckily the street doesn't carry major traffic. Book a room on the parking lot side – LOL
