We have stayed here a couple time on our way out west. Quiet place and casino next door is a nice distraction. Staff is very friendly and we will stay here again. The pool was nice and there is a hot tub.

We stayed here this past weekend for a wedding. The hotel was clean, modern, comfortable, and had many amenities. I have to comment on the outstanding customer service that we had as well. Our only complaint was that the AC was either broken, or controlled, so it wasn't as cold as we would have liked. We would stay here again... More

We were coming back from a two week cross country road trip when we had to stop unexpectedly due to a minor illness. When we pulled off the highway to use the wayside rest area, low and behold, there was a Holiday Inn Express. We have stayed in many of these and once again this one did not disappoint. Always...

We made reservations for a 2 queen bed room and we assumed that it would have a small refrigerator and a micro wave. When we checked in and got to our room we found out different...no refrigerator or microwave! We had to upgrade to a "suite" in order to have these items in our room. We'd never had to do... More

This hotel is still fairly new and is super clean. It has a convenient location right off the interstate and next to the casino. The rooms are very nice and spacious. The staff at the front desk was extremely nice and helpful. Would definitely stay here again!

We had to stay here due to a blizzard on our way to MN. Staff was very helpful and patient with the interstate closing and influx of people trying to book a room. The rooms were beautiful and clean. The food was typical hotel food. I would definitely stay here again.

I was not planning on spending the night but I found myself in the midst of a blizzard and it was too scary to try to go farther north with white out conditions.

Recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Express and was extremely satisfied. The common areas and the rooms were clean, the staff was friendly, the rooms were quiet and I got a fair rate for a Thursday night. I definitely recommend staying here.
