Seems to be a newer property. Staff was friendly. Room was quite even though it's right by the interstate. Our room was a jacuzzi suite with living and bedroom area. It is also located right ext to a good Mexican restaurant.

We have stayed at this motel twice while traveling, and have been satisfied both times. The rooms are clean and equip with mini-frig and microwave. The motel is quiet. The staff is friendly and helpful. A nice breakfast is available. Plenty of parking at the motel and conveniently located right off I-80.

My family and I stayed here for the night. Staff was great all the way around. Room was clean - like the white bedding. The bed was lumpy but not the worst I've ever. Breakfast was ample and good. Overall I would stay again.

Thank you for your review. Our staff works hard to deliver the consistency that you expect from our hotel. Sorry to hear about the mattress, however, we are in the process of finishing up our mattress replacement program that will complete the property. They are all to franchise compliance based on brand (Serta) and most popular firmness. We look forward... More

Well, this stay was just OK. When checking in, the front desk clerk was very nice. When we got to our room, it had a weird smell, but the clerk got us a new room. Although, our second room's door didnt have a lock that worked at all. Breakfast was fine, but a rather small area for all the guests.... More

Thank you for your input. We are now in a period of time that with the extensive moisture, heat and humidity doors occasionally need some adjustment associated with swelling. Our Chief Engineer has made those adjustments to the room and our housekeeping staff has investigated your odor concern. We do not advertise an exercise room or pool as we do... More

Very convenient location, just off the highway and next door to a very good Mexican restaurant. We were warmly welcomed, given spacious room with a view of the river, overlooking the back parking lot. Great complimentary breakfast with warm cinnamon rolls! We will make it a point to stay here on our return trip!

Lovely lodge furnishings but indifferent customer service. Room smaller than average, but clean and serviceable. Would prefer vanity area to be a separate area with door. Free WIFI was easy to access. Did not experience breakfast as it didn't open until 6:30AM.

Thank you for your response. Our rooms are consistent with Holiday Inn Express standard size dimensions with room/suite type options to choose from. We strive to provide great service consistently, however, an occasional unintended concern can arise and our policy is to address it in a timely manner. Consistent with most hotel brands our breakfast room technically opens at 6:30... More

If you're traveling west on Interstate 80 and find you need to stop for the night in Ogallala, stop here. I'm not sure it was built as an HIE, but it is a very comfortable hotel, super clean, well-maintained and has two of the friendliest, most diligent breakfast ladies we've ever encountered!

The rooms are clean, wi-fi and breakfast are provided free of charge. For us, this was a stop on the way home from vacation. I had never seen a hotel designed quite like this one---first floor rooms were more like motel rooms with parking outside your door, whild 2nd floor rooms were more traditional hotel rooms, accessed via elevator.

We spent one night here on a cross country trip. The room was not as large as I would have expected for the price, but it was adequate and clean. In addition to a king size bed, there was a comfortable armchair and a desk and chair. The bathroom was small and the sink area, which was outside the bathroom,... More
