This property is a fairly new hotel in Kearney. The rooms are large and they are pretty quiet and well maintained It's close to the Interstate for easy access, but far enough away to not have the traffic noise. Staff is friendly and helpful, breakfast is good - and the seating area is large enough so you're not crowded. This... More

We recently spent a very enjoyable evening here. This motel is far enough away from the Interstate to make it very quiet to get a great nights sleep. We stayed in a suite and it was very clean, comfortable and quite roomy compared to a lot of other HI locations. Evening social was very nice as was breakfast. Staff was... More

This hotel is very nice, although I think a little pricy for an Express. I am sure the market demands it however as a full Holiday Inn is a half of a mile away from this property and seems to always be busy. The rooms are very well kept, the pool area in excellent condition, and the breakfast is well... More

On southside of I-80 but far enough away to avoid traffic noise. East side room was quiet even on a very blustery day. King room was very spacious. Decor is "modern". Green & black colors not to my taste but didn't matter for an overnight on an interstate driving trip. Can't walk to much from the hotel, but no matter.... More

Beautiful hotel, location was easily accessible from the Interstate. Restaurants were within walking distance. Was surprised by and loved the Manager's Reception in the evening, very nice. Breakfast was great with good selections. Employees were very friendly. Will definitely stop here again when passing through!

Nice location...near everything fun and just a hop skip and jump from shopping BUT...you don't have to worry about all the traffic noise like some of the other hotel located on the main drive in the heart of kearney. Very clean rooms, kept up well and friendly staff made this a great stay! Thanks!

A very pleasant and helpful reception staff was the start of a great overnight stay in Kearney. The young lady at the desk went above and beyond to help me find a local shooting range.

This motel is a typical Holiday Inn Express. The employees make this motel unique. They were courteous, competent, friendly, and helpful. This motel is SOUTH of I80 (GPS has it wrong). This is newer and nicer than the Holiday Inn (which is North if I80.
