This is probably one of the best HIX I have ever stayed! I travel a lot & this rakes up there in my top 10 list. I was surprised at how large my king room was & also is tastefully decorated. I told the friendly front staff they would be getting a nice Trip Advisor review from me!

We stay in Kearney from time to time to visit family in the area. This time was a quick overnight visit, and we had our toddlers with us. The desk clerks and other staffers were very friendly and helpful. When I informed them that we had small children who were not cooperating about going to bed, and that I was... More

We decided to stay at this hotel to see the sand crane migration and picked this chain because we are seeing a pattern in the way these hotels are run, ie, Clean, good value and excellent hot breakfast. Rooms are decorated nicely and have just the right amout of room. And they seem to be insulated better then other hotels... More

Was very warmly welcomed by Katie at the front desk and all went very well from there. Rooms seemed very clean and new feeling. I always like the choice of pillows as I lean towards a harder pillow. Breakfast was very good with a number of choices. Fruit was lacking by the time I got down there at 8:30 but... More

I stayed for 3 nights and have nothing but great things to say about this location. The staff was very pleasant, helpful and professional. The room was very clean and comfortable with good internet and TV. The bath water was hot with great water pressure (a must). OMG! They have chocolate milk in their fridge. I will be back.

This is an especially nice hotel! Everything seemed brand new and immaculately clean. The 42" TV and DVD player was great. The king size bed was so comfortable and it had actual king size pillows on it, 2 firm and 2 soft, so you had a choice of what pillow to sleep on. Internet worked great. The room had a... More

Excelent stay! One night while transitting Kearney. Great reception guy, couldn't do enough for us. Room was large, clean as a whistle and very well furnished. Bed was made for sleeping. Excellent gym downstairs, high-grade equipment and again, clean as a whistle. This has to be the best hotel stay we have had in the US after almost three months... More

Spent two nights at this hotel. The staff was very nice and the hotel is new and very clean. Decent breakfast was included. One of the better beds I've slept in (probably because it is new). One thing I noticed is that if you're tall the shower should be fine. Someone over 6' should have no problem with the shower... More
