Nice hotel, rowdy crowd
Stay was great, other than being woke up by the room next door at 2:45am. Called front desk and they came and talked to them. Then they decided to move to the room across the hall at 3:15am so there was a lot more noise, including the door opening and slamming shut several times. After reporting this again upon checkout we were only told sorry, it happens. We were in town for a wrestling tournament and had to be up at 5am. So not much sleep!

Great Stay
This hotel was perfect. We were down for a college visit to Drake. Staff was extremely helpful and rooms were clean.

Great Location!
Great location and overall a wonderful place to stay! The one downfall is the in-room climate control. If it's winter, you can ONLY access the heater. If it's summer, you can ONLY access the A/C. Normally this wouldn't be an issue, but our room was too warm, even with the window cracked open. Overall though, a great place to stay and it's right by the downtown amenities.

Holiday Inn Mercy was great!
Great people and was suprised they even provided shuttle drop off and pickup to where we were going for a wedding! Parking was easy, check in was quick, room was nice. We had family @ the Hilton and after hearing their experiences I'm glad we chose Holiday Inn where we saved money and had a good stay! Thank you.

Warmth
Excellent care. This was a room for my elderly parents visit since we live in a small downtown apartment. The front desk took wonderful care of my folks. Parents need a warm room and when original room didn’t warm up enough they helped move them and got them space heaters. Thank you so much. Original room had view of the city but warmth was more important.

no heat in November
heater in room did not work - end tables had sticky beverage rings on them - obviously not cleaned. Toilet would start running every 15 minutes or so. Otherwise, room was large and comfortable. Appreciated the Keurig coffee maker in the room.
