After a long day of traveling, I slept like a rock on the very comfortable bed and plush pillows at this Holiday Inn - one of the best hotel sleeps I've had in a long time. Room rate was reasonable and the hotel is in a nice location, off the main highway near a golf course - pretty and quiet....

The motel was sitting up on a bluff and across the street was a golf course, very quiet setting and away from the business district Preet was great, he was at the desk when myself and sister arrived.

Not in a very convenient location. Actually in a residential area a couple of miles off the interstate. Literally nothing within walking distance. If you are visiting Lake Red Rock, this would be a more convenient location than if you are wanting to visit and shop in downtown Pella. Average rooms. Overpriced for location and what you get. Rooms not...

We stayed here for the Tulip Festival. This hotel was a good price and within a reasonable distance from downtown Pella. The room was clean, pool was nice, and breakfast was provided, what more could you ask for :)

Room and hotel were average, but certainly not fancy. It was a decent place to sleep for a night, no frills. Most HIX's are nicer, cleaner, fancier than this one. Nothing terribly wrong with this hotel, but certainly not the normal HIX I'm accustomed to.

Watch out! This hotel will charge whatever credit card is on your rewards card without even looking at the credit card. My husband stayed there and used my rewards card. His company was supposed to pay for the room and for whatever reason, they charged my credit card and I wasn't even there!!! Seems fraudulent if you ask me!

Thank perksisa
HappyHotelier82, Front Desk Agent at Holiday Inn Express Pella, responded to this review

Dear perksisa, This was simply a miscommunication between the guest and hotel. We did explain to you over the phone that no one informed our hotel either while they were making the reservation, nor anytime during their stay, that he was with a company; hence making it impossible to know you were not personally paying for this stay. We apologize...

This hotel is located in an upscale neighborhood near a public golf course. It's amenities are what you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express. There were complimentary cookies in the lobby and the continental breakfast had a good amount of options for picky eaters. The downside is this hotel is located about 2.5 miles away from the downtown district...

Nice hotel! Surrounded by a lot of nice house on a golf course. When you are first driving up you will feel like this is a very strange place for a hotel, because of the neighborhood surroundings. The hotel is very nice and the managers offer nice appetizers and drinks every Tuesday and Wednesday from 6-8pm.

Not a bad place at all! As with the previous reviews, it is a bit off the "highway" and in the middle of a residential neighborhood (which is kind of different).
