I chose this motel because I assumed it would be like other Holiday Inn Expresses. It is not due to it's western theme, fake log cabin furniture. The room was comfortable enough but the color scheme of pea-green walls and gold was unpleasant. The TV selections were limited. Through a computer mistake (mine) I had booked two rooms for my...

Stayed here last week for the night while driving through. The hotel was nice and clean. Rooms were comfortable and large. Staff was friendly. My only issue was the trains that go by frequently - all night. It probably would have been ok if they didn't blow their whistle every time they go through. It didn't seem to bother anyone... More

I just found some notes in my suitcase from a stay here in March. My notes say that the room was large, clean, quiet, and that I had a good night's sleep. Can't ask for much more than that. I also noted that the heat/ac unit is a wall blower unit but that at least it is a good distance... More

Had a king size suite. It was clean as expected. My only complaint about the room was the lack of a writing desk and chair, or a suitable place to use my laptop. Breakfast area was well maintained, but the hot items such as the eggs, pre-cooked bacon and sausage were really bad.

This hotel had a friendly and helpful front desk & breakfast room staff. The rooms were very clean & comfortable. Free breakfast was good. We stopped on our way to Southern Utah and again on our trip home to PA. There is a Walmart, gas/convenience stores & several restaurants in the area. We would stay here again.

We drove from Iowa to Denver which is about a 12 Hour DrIve. This hotel was located just past halfway so was perfect for us. It is right off of interstate 80 so very handy.

This is the second time that we have stayed at the hotel in recent months. Nothing fancy. Clean room with comfortable bed. Getting a room away from I-80 and on top floor a plus. Pricey for the area, but with a normal HIE breakfast it is a fine, convenient hotel experience.

Stayed here for one night. Room was okay. Hotel has a sort of lodge-like feel. Breakfast included, was not too great. Front desk and breakfast staff were friendly. The hotel is conveniently located on a road paralleling I-80 but I missed it when getting off the interstate (getting back on was quite easy).

Thank you for your input. We are a western themed property that is located in the "Cowboy Capitol of Nebraska". Originally Ogallala was founded as a city built at the end of the Texas Trail back in the late 1800's when cattle drives (on horse of course) were brought up from Dallas to the Ogallala Livestock Auction which still operates...

We'd return to this property. That is the best testament a hotel can have. Everyone was so well trained and hospitable. The room was spotless and the breakfast plentiful.
