After a long day on the lake...we all got a great night's sleep and enjoyed our breakfast in the morning. Good coffee, eggs, pancakes, cinnamon rolls, and sausage. Rooms were clean and staff was friendly. We will definitely stay here again! So close to town we saw a movie one night, shopped at Safeway and both restaurants we ate at... More

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. We had a king-sized bed (super comfortable) with a couch with a pull-out bed for the kids and it was perfect for us. The kids thought that sleeping on... More

We were traveling with our dogs when we stayed at this hotel and requested a room by the door. When we arrived, they had put us in a room that was not close to an outside door, which they noticed and moved us. We were very pleased with our room and the service from the front desk.

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

Thank you for your input regarding your stay. Unfortunately, we cannot build a pool on this site due to the water table and our proximity to the South Platte River and the pond north of the parking lot.

Who builds a hotel 500 feet from the interstate? Obviously Holiday Inn thought it was a good idea and if you can deal with the noise we had a pretty decent stay. Our room faced the interstate and we were able to alleviate some of the noise by turning our air conditioning so the fan ran constantly. The couple traveling... More

Thank you for staying with us. Unfortunately, location of motels often place them in proximity of Interstates, Highways, Avenues, that come with some traffic noise. Most of the franchises here come with a certain degree of your concern. We do offer ear plugs if a guest desires them, and we try to make sure the windows are totally latched to... More

This hotel was a little bit more expensive than the neighboring hotels, but after taking a look at the others, was well worth it. We got a nice, clean room, and the bed was super comfortable. The breakfast in the morning was great.

Thank you for your review and input. Unfortunately, being an Interstate hotel the traffic noise occasionally is noticeable. One option is we provide ear plugs at the front desk if desired as a solution. Usually the AC unit will block out the noise, but it's hard to block out some semis that have to use their load jake breaks when... More

Front Desk staff were very friendly. Great western atmosphere. Clean and comfortable rooms. As usual for Holiday Inn, the beds were great. Breakfast selection was more than what we usually get. Lots of hot teams along with pancakes, muffins, yogurt eggs, etc. Very happy overall.
