Property was clean relatively new and breakfast buffet what's good

The room smelled of fresh paint and glue, we had to air the room out. I asked if we could have a room on the first floor if possible and they gave us a room with a king size bed ( one bed) we went out to dinner without checking the room and found out on our return it had only 1 bed. We booked a 2 bed room, why would they give us a 1 bed room ? I was told by the staff we asked for a first floor room, that was my answer. The staff need training here very badly. Our stay was very sad indeed.

The location was right off I-35 and was very easy to find.The staff was friendly and we checked in very late (like 9:30pm), but that was no problem. The hotel was quiet, the room was clean and neat, and the breakfast was adequate in the morning. Overall, a very nice stay!

This is the second time I've stayed at this hotel and I will certainly be back. It is a great place to stop and rest when traveling between my home in North Dakota and points southeast (Des Moines, Chicago, Dubuque, etc.). My only complaint, so to speak, is the breakfasts at the Holiday Inn Express chain hotels. They're too heavy on carbohydrates and too light on fruit. This hotel didn't even have any oranges, apples or bananas (as many do) but only packaged peaches in sauce. I ate my fill, though, and it was fine, but not the best start to my day.

We had a pleasant stay . The hotel is relatively new and the rooms were comfortable. The breakfast buffet was good.

Very clean and new. Very nice amenities for the price. Had a little difficulty finding w/ my gps.
