“Very nice hotel by the highway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

I spent a night here in July for a night for work. The hotel was nice and clean and very comfortable like I normally expect from most of the Holiday Inn Express hotels. The room had a nice flat screen TV, along with comfortable beds made for a nice night of sleep. I also used the hot tub and the pool the night I was there, and they were both clean and nice. There are not a ton of places to eat right around the hotel, but there are some a few exits away. This is a very nice hotel and I would definitely stay here again next time I'm in the area.

This is a brand new hotel. Staff was friendly, pool was great, rooms well planned and clean. There was a great shower in the bathroom, no tub to step in and out of, large and practical. The rooms had a refrigerator, coffee maker and microwave, The breakfast was well organized, with good food selections. Not excellent, but great for a breakfast on the run. We were very happy with our choice to stay here. We met some friendly people in the pool and Jacuzzi area which was a kind of bonus.

We just needed to get a couple hours start on our trip from KU back to Colorado Springs so thought we would give this new hotel a try instead of driving into Salina like we normally do. We were SHOCKED how quiet it was even though it's just off the interstate. Bed was what we have came to expect from the Holiday Inn Express family.

We booked on points, sure we were upgraded which was MUCH appreciated. This hotel does lack the half walls in the suite but was an amazing room.

Breakfast was what we have come to expect from Holiday Inn Express as well. Found it fresh, hot or cold depending on what we picked.

Will stop again for sure!!!

Delivery - Dominos & Mr. Goodcents Subs/Pasta/Pizza.
Liquor Store is just north on the exit you came in on, Country Liquor

There is little to say about this and other Holiday Inn Express Motels. The cost is high, but the room quality is the best there is. The breakfast quality though was poor, but typical for most motels. I lowered the value rating because the AAA and Senior Discounts were less than the typical 10%

Room Tip: All rooms are likely good as with 90% of all Holiday Inn Locations.

This was a great choice for the evening heading back to Colorado! Not difficult to find off of I-70. Quiet location. Did not notice the trucks as the other reviewer. The rooms were immaculate. The shower was hot and refreshing. The handicapped room was well equipped and had a nice shower area with fold down bench. The small pool was nice, quiet, but very cool. The hot tub was enjoyable to use to work out the kinks from traveling. All around a great place and follow that up with a nice breakfast included. I used points from my travel card for these rooms and that made it even better! Don't hesitate to book here for a nice night and a comfortable bed. All the front desk clerks were kind and caring. The only drawback was seeing one of them outside the front door smoking (this is a non-smoking facility). You had to walk past and through the smoke to get in the door :(

This is a new property and in excellent condition. Reception was friendly. We had a king suite and it did have a sofa and coffee table, but was not separated from the sleeping area except by a very small partition. Beds were comfortable and triple sheeted. I usually prefer HI Express when staying at a suite style motel, but his was not as spacious as others and did not really feel like a suite. One of my favorite parts of HI Express is the breakfast. They did a good job and kept the food available and warm.

A negative was that there was only one elevator for a 4 story motel. There was always a wait for an elevator. Another negative was the surrounding area. It was across from a truck stop and there must have been 50 trucks parked there so it felt like, well, like a truck stop. There were only 3 or 4 fast food restaurants nearby and these were attached to gas stations. All other restaurants are farther away than is usual for this type of motel.

I might stay here for one night if passing through, but only because it is new.

Easy access to interstate. Clean and friendly staff as usual at HIE.

No nearby restaurants.

If passing through with kids, go to city-owned waterpark in town (about 2-3 miles). It was less than $20 for whole family to get in. Pools, lazy river, waterslides, etc.
