“New property, very large rooms, big pool and large hot tub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2009

Plush bedding, very comfortable, pleasant, helpful staff, fast check-in/check-out. Free breakfast. All the Holiday Inn Express motels we stayed in in North Dakota, Montana, Wyoming and Amarillo, TX, seemed to be new or newly refurbished. Larger than normal rooms, dark woods, extra pillows, roomy showers, and free breakfast were the standard. Most had mini frig and microwave. Very large pool and hot tub.

Stayed here on a stopover to Colorado. Nice place even though I try to stay away from Holiday Inn Express anymore due to problems with the Companys promotions which they do not honor. Only stayed here because could not find another closeby.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2009

Been on the road for over 50 days on a cross-country road trip and stopped in Amarillo. Found this hotel because of its rave TripAdvisor reviews.

I have to say that every bit of the reviews are true! The rooms are a good size (beds seem a bit smaller than a Queen), clean, and smell great. The evening staff, though on her own, was hospitable and genuinely nice.

The breakfast was better than a lot of the other free breakfasts we've had along the way, and on a Saturday, they kept it open WAY longer than scheduled, which made a lot of the guests VERY HAPPY!

Never really saw the manager get so involved in breakfast service details, but there was Mr. Patel, hosting, helping, and hospitable.

This was not the cheapest hotel in Amarillo, but it was worth every penny!

Upon entering the room, I saw a fridge, microwave, coffee pot and sink set in granite countertops in a mini kitchen. Then I spotted the bed and pillows...which turned out to be a slice of comfy king-sized heaven. The snow white towels were plentiful and fluffy. The internet worked fine as well as the TV. The breakfast was VERY well done (coffee, omlettes, sausage, bacon, juice, cereal, biscuits, cinnamon rolls, fruit and more). There were USA Today newspapers stacked on a table and fresh flowers scattered around the dining room. The indoor pool had a rack with towels. NICE NICE NICE.

This is the nicest Holiday Inn Express that we have ever stayed in. Beautiful lobby decorated in european elegance - warm and welcoming! The staff was "over the top" friendly and the manager was engaging and helpful. It really felt like we were in a four star hotel. We stayed there twice in 10 days and were treated like old friends on our return trip. Cannot give a better review than that - bottom line is we were IMPRESSED and we do a LOT of traveling.
Clean and large comfortable rooms with nice beds and comfortors. Granite sinks and shower, overall a very nice room. Lovely indoor pool with a waterfall - very large hot tub.
Nice continental breakfast in the morning in a beautifully appointed room that included sofas and upscale furnishings. OVERALL -terrific and would definitely stay there again.

This place was perfect. Didn't have a single problem. My room was on the South side (facing the interstate) and I never had any problems with excessive noise. They had the typical hot breakfast that the HIE offers. Lobby was decorated on the fancy side, which was a nice touch!
