This Holiday Inn Express is of a Western Style with rear corner balcony rooms at a good price. Front desk personel are most helpful. Fresh baked cookies on check-in.

This hotel was so welcoming after a ten hour drive! It is probably the best Holiday Inn I have stayed at. Everything was clean, nicely taken care of, and staff was friendly as well! I will definitely stay here again. The only downside was a lack of on-site pool. The hotel does have an arrangement with the local recreation center... More

We've stayed here 2 or 3 times and have always had great service, good food, clean rooms. The free breakfast in the morning is much more than you expect and the ladies that keep everything stocked were very friendly. We would definitely stay here again if the need arises.

Traveling out West we stayed a night at this hotel, we enjoyed the king room with couch that made into sleeper sofa, breakfast was above average. Most important for us when traveling is clean rooms and this Holiday Inn Express was just that....super clean....we'd stay again.

What a great hotel. Seriously – it was lovely. Here is the run down: PROS: Great décor with a nice Western theme which goes well with the surroundings. Great, clean rooms.

As far as hotels go, this one was nice enough... clean room, comfortable beds & pillows, etc... but there is no pool! I've never heard of an HIE not having a pool! The kids were so disappointed! Another thing I really don't like is that the sink & mirror aren't actually "in" the bathroom, they're right outside of it so... More
