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!

Thank you for staying with us. We were originally built as a Holiday Inn Express but our property being in the heart of the "Old West", and our city known as the Cowboy Capitol of NE, we are a western themed hotel with a western motif but still according to stringent franchise standards for a consistent overall experience. It's our... More

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.

Thank you for your review. Being in Ogallala, NE, the property was built to represent this areas old west heritage. Our western décor and design is something different than the big city styles that appear more contemporary. We do have half of the 1st floor rooms that have a drive up entrance as well as the room being accessible from... More

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

We called on Saturday night, looking for three rooms at the last minute, and were promptly accommodated. The manager on duty was pleasant and helpful, and made us feel welcome and at home. This hotel saved our trip, as the hotel we originally booked was in very bad shape. We went to 3 Margaritas for dinner, and it was the... More

Very western themed complete with an antler chandelier... I am not a 'kill animals for sport' kind of person so it made me kind of uncomfortable. Nice clean room (although my dog did find an oatmeal cookie under the bed). Pet friendly, but there is only a tiny little grassy area where the pets can go potty :/ I don't... More

Friendly staff. Price was a little higher than i thought it should be for the location and the beds were not very comfortable. Clean room and nice hot breakfast. Wifi worked good. Did not see a work out room.

Staff was very friendly, as I'd expect in a small town in western Nebraska. Check in was quick with reservations (the guy in front of me didn't have them and it was still quick). Room on first floor was quiet, albeit with a bit of interstate noise, but nothing bad. Room was clean, bed comfortable, shower hot, env controls responsive.... More
