The Holiday Inn is a very nice hotel to stay at. Rooms super clean and just off the highway. Staff were very keen to help. Wireless internet worked well. Good standard HiEx breakfast.

We arrived to find a different room than what we reserved had been assigned. It did not have a comfortable chair. Tina at the desk took care of it and understood the problem. If the hotel had decent ergonomic desk chairs so you can actually use a modern device called a laptop, this would not have been an issue. But,... More

I've stayed at a lot of hotels; some low-end dives when I was on a budget, a few high-end hotels and resorts for vacations or business conferences, most middle-of-the-road places when traveling on business. Trying to get a decent deal while avoiding some of the horrible crap that is out there can be a challenge. At this Holiday Inn, located... More

This is a basic but clean Holiday Inn Express that is literally just off I-80 at the Ogallala exit, great for travel if that's where you need to break your trip. The motel puts guests with dogs on the third floor, kind of inexplicable as some of the ground-floor rooms exit directly out the back of the motel. We found... More

We make a trip through here on an annual basis. Ogallala is a stop on our journey. This facility is a little older than others at the interstate, but we've always been very pleased with the high quality and cleanliness of the rooms. Staff have always been very friendly to the weary traveler, with quick check-in and willingness to meet... More

We have stayed here while traveling through and each time has been a great stay. The front desk are almost always helpful and courteous. The rooms are super clean and nicely appointed. We always sleep well even though the highway side has highway noise. Breakfast is so-so, and be careful of the slippery back entrance. It always seem like they... More

The building was in great shape, clean, and a special thanks to Bonnie for making sure our breakfast was as best it could be. She made me feel at home - what more could you ask for when staying at a home away from home!?

We try to stay at HI Expresses whenever we can when we travel. Stayed here on 12/26/11 on our way out west. We found this HI Express to be clean and comfortable, with a pleasant, attentive staff.
