“Very nice but very expensive for the area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2010

Nice new Holiday Inn Express and as usual, it meets all expectations for a Holiday Inn Express. However, it is probably the most expensive Holiday Inn we've stayed at the past year and we have stayed at many. The breakfast is the usual fare that will get you going and the coffee is good. We wish there were fresh fruit available. The staff is very efficient and accommodating.

This was a great hotel with a great location next to Walmart. Great service and excellent people running the front desk. Staff recommended a steak house that served us the best steak we have eaten in years. Don't waste your time staying some place else. The price was steep for a Holiday Inn Express, but you are in the middle of nowhere. They kind of have you between a rock and a hard place. My only recommendation would be to get more than one washer and dryer for the patrons to use. We stood in line until almost 11:00PM to wait our turn.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2010

We stayed at this hotel for one night after visiting Great Sand Dunes National Park. We really prefer Hampton Inns, but the one in Alamosa is not yet open. So, we thought we’d try this Holiday Inn Express.

Check in was fine. We booked a suite since we were a party of three adults and thought this might give us more room. The room is bigger, but its not a true suite as there is no dividing wall or door between the sitting area and the bed area. The two televisions are close enough so that you could watch them both at the same time if you wanted.

There was a partially used bottle of hotel supplied mouthwash sitting on the bathroom counter when we arrived that we promptly threw in the garbage. Evidently there was a stain on one of the sitting area chairs that they had tried to remove as there was a large wet spot on the cushion when we arrived. After it dried, the stain was still there.

Breakfast was okay, but not great.

We didn’t try the wireless internet service the evening we arrived. When we did try it the next morning, it wasn’t working. Also, the internet service on the computers in the business center was out as well.

The hotel is right on a very busy highway. Fortunately, our room faced away from the highway, so the noise didn’t bother us. However, when we were in the pool area, which does face the highway, it was extremely noisy and I can see how this would bother folks trying to sleep.

The indoor pool area was their one big plus. The pool is a nice size and warm enough to jump right in without freezing. There is a nice hot tub as well. The unusual thing was that there was a nice sauna as well. We don’t normally see these at most mid priced hotels.

Check out was fine as well.

When we booked the room, the price was higher than I would have expected it to be in that area and it certainly wasn’t worth it.

Went to visit Great Sand Dunes National Park in May. Spent one night in a Suite at the Holday Inn Express. The Front Desk staff was extremely nice and helpful. Check In was quick. Received the type of room I requested. The lemonade & cookies at check in are a nice touch. I had a few questions over the course of 2 days and everyone answered in a very friendly & cordial manner. The breakfast was fine. The room was clean, and up to date. The bathroom was clean. The expectations of a stay at a Holiday Inn Express were meet. We would stay here again when traveling to this part of Colorado.

Near Walmart on the west side of town is the Holiday Inn Express. It is the best of this class - long building with central front desk and a breakfast room. Rooms are oriented north and south, so you are not blasted with the early sun.

Check-in was fast and friendly. Night weather can be very cold even in summer -- it was 33 degrees one night of our visit. The front desk clerk confirmed this as normal.

Our room was large with two comfortable beds. Inside was a good tv, small table/desk and enough outlets for our gear. The bathroom was well designed and very clean. Internet access was fast and easy.

Breakfast included a wide variety of breads, hot foods, yogurt, cereals and more. They were constantly servicing the buffet.

This property is bright and fresh and well managed. My only disappointment is that I did not stay a few more days here.

The hotel rooms were well apointed with a microwave and decent-sized fridge. The beds were not as comfortable as I would have liked, but they were satisfactory. Breakfast included traditional continental items as well as scrambled eggs and bacon. The eggs were of an unusual texture and taste, but otherwise everything was good.
