Check out time?!
Very clean hotel on the Drake University Campus. Check in was fine, not much info given. But the issue I had was the time of housekeeping. They started knocking on my door at 8:15, wanting to clean the room. We left for my granddaughter’s event at 8:30 and I came back hoping to get some work done. Multiple knocks on the door for housekeeping occurred and there was no “Do Not Disturb” sign on the door knob to use. I finally gave up and checked out at 10:00, about an hour before I wanted to and 2 hours before check out time. I don’t blame the housekeeper because management should have called her off. I ended up doing my paperwork in my car with no internet. I was really upset about that because it wasn’t the plan. Is this because I made the reservation on Still, for $138 I would have rated that extra hour of peace that I should have been able to use.

Checked in on NYE and the gentleman at front desk was super nice and gave tons of suggestions on where to go and what to do. Hotel was also really quiet and no outside noise when midnight hit!

Holiday Inn should not use plastic coffee pods
Everything was exactly as it should be, although I was disappointed to see a Keurig coffee maker and its pods in the room. Until those pods are not plastic, no hotel chain committed to environmental responsibility should be offering them.

Great breakfast and such a gracious hostess!
They got a A++ for the breakfast, I have never had such a lovely continental breakfast before it was delicious too.
