I'd give this place a solid 4.5/5. Clean & comfortable and what I'd expect from a HIE. That being said, I'd recommend booking the Hampton Inn in Kearney (less than 5 minutes away) before this if possible. For the same price, it feels a little bit more upscale and on its game. My room smelled vaguely of dirty wet towels... More

While traveling through stayed here for one night, staff was very helpful and pleasant on check in. We had a nice quiet stay, the breakfast area had a feature have not seen in any other Holiday Inn Express with booths style seating and power outlet above seat.

I Have always enjoyed this hotel, great front desk staff, and modern, comfortable rooms. This stay had 2 very negative incidents which have severely undermined my confidence in this hotel. 1. while eating breakfast I watched the attendant take the garbage out then without washing her hands she refilled the cereal dispenser, she then rearranged the uncooked bagels in the...

This hotel is very conveniently located on the east side of Kearney, less than 1/4 mile south of Interstate 80. My room was the usual high standard for HIE cleanliness and extremely quiet since it faced the backside of the hotel which overlooked an empty field for 100 yards with some commercial buildings in the distance. There wasn't even a... More

Top of the heap of Holiday Inn Express. Was really busy the first night but check in went OK. They had a Managers reception that had beer and wine and it was very busy with 1 gal working but she was hustling to try to keep everybody in drinks. We didn't expect this so it was a pleasant surprise. The... More

Nothing unusual about the Holiday Inn Express. Clean room, good desk service, standard HIE breakfast. I would suggest it if you are in or passing through Kearney or central Nebraska. Easy access from the interstate and good parking lot. Give it a try.

We stayed here after driving through the Sandhills, and it was a pretty good hotel. The location is good and the hotel is in good shape. Our room was comfortable, beds were soft, bathroom was clean, and breakfast was good. Overall, a good stay.
