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. I was able to find a fairly good rate on hotels.com. All of the staff I encountered were very friendly. The Wi-Fi signal was free... More

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.

This building was built 20 years ago but has been remodeled, maintained and looks like new. It does have one quark. The first floor rooms on the parking lot or back side of the hotel have exterior entrances and a hall way entrance. I bring this up because not everyone likes the room access from the parking lot.

This is our favorite overnight stop between central Iowa and the Denver area. The hotel is clean, the staff is very friendly. The immediate area (I80 exit) has numerous eating and fueling options. The hotel breakfast (free) is very good and served by two ladies who work hard to provide what you want. will stay here again.
