“Nice getaway weekend here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2010

This is a nice Holiday Inn Express. All the usual amenities. They also have a pool and coin-op laundry machines. It's right across the street from the tram up to the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park. About a mile from "downtown" restaurants, friendly staff, hot (not homemade) breakfast. We stayed in the king suite with the jetted tub.

We were just traveling through, needed something close to I-70. Standard HIE, which works fine for us. Desk staff were welcoming and helpful, gave good directions to places to eat. Found the immediate area a bit confusing to drive around after dark from hotel to West Glnwd Spgs and back....not horrible, but roundabouts, etc. were a bit confusing since not familiar with the area. Good hotel.

Thank you so much for your kind comments. I'll make sure that Richard sees this. He is a true professional and you are right, he really likes his job. I agree that this is a beautiful mountain community. I hope you saw some of the snow before you left. Please come see us again.

We stayed in the Holiday Inn Express in Glenwood Springs for a second time in September, 2010. Again, we found the room clean and pleasant. Breakfast had plenty of room to sit (they provide evening cookies too). The food made a reasonable breakfast for this level of hotel. The front desk was helpful when we checked in.

This hotel is about a four block walk to the hot springs pool. It has the feeling of a relatively new hotel, with helpful staff. We would stay here a third time on a future visit. We thought it was a good value.

We stayed in Glenwood Springs for 2 nights, in the middle of a 2 week Colorado vacation. We loved the area and we were happy with the Holiday Inn Express.
The room was very clean and a good size. We have 1 teen and 2 tweens and so needed a rollaway. We were late arriving and so did not get a room with a sofa sleeper.
The front desk staff was very friendly and accomdating. The first rollaway was very poor quality, and they switched to an improved bed for the second night. The hotel appeared to be newer and was very clean. The breakfast area was small-ish, and crowded with families in the morning (in June). The staff did a great job with keeping the food replenished and fresh. They had both hot and cold breakfast items. The pool was a very small outdoor pool. It was clean and warm. We were happy with our stay and would recommend this hotel.

Thank you for your review of our hotel. I'm so glad you and your kids enjoyed your stay. The staff really enjoys having families stay with us. Remember, Glenwood is a great get-away all year long. Summer is very busy - thus the crowded breakfast. If you stay with us at another time you'll have an even better experience.

Stayed 2 nights with my wife, 3 year old, and 5 month old.
Everyone at the hotel was friendly and helpful.
Breakfast was ok, eggs, cereal, biscuits and gravy, assorted french toast and bagels, definitely enough variety for most, the type of food you'd expect for free at, as an employee put it, a "continental breakfast on steroids"...
Room was very clean and very modern, granite surfaces, new fixtures, small fridge, flat screen tv, must have been newly remodeled or a newer hotel.
Free FAST wifi in the room!
We would definitely stay again.

We chose HI Express here because we can depend that there will be no surprises with the bed, linens, breakfast, and amenities. We love their towels and the beds are so comfy. This HI Express is well located in the main tourist area but a half block off the main street so that there is no disturbing traffic noise. The tramway to the mountaintop amusement park is a half block away - just behind the hotel,. The small pool in front has umbrellas and lounges. Plenty of parking and helpful front desk people. The only negative I could come up with is that there were several smoking rooms on the third floor. We were at the farthest end from them so we weren't bothered but I would not have liked to be next to one of them since the smoke was noticeable at that end during our stay. We had a great time at the adventure park up the tramway but the highlight here was using the bike shuttle servicce at Canyon Bikes to pedal the 16 miles downhill back to town on the paved bike trail through Glenwood Canyon along the Colorado River. The hotel shower felt great afterward!

Thank you for your kind review of our hotel. I agree that although only a few rooms are designated smoking, the smell can be noticable in the hall. I'm glad to hear that at your end of the hall it wasn't a problem. Sounds like you really enjoyed the biking trip. You need to come again because there are lots of other great outdoor activities. Consider coming this winter. Sunlight ski area here in Glenwood is delightful.
