“Hotel Recommendation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Clean, friendly, easy access and reasonably priced. Situated on the edge of town with an excellent restaurant, The Claim Jumper, no more than 30 yards from the front door of the Hotel. Ideally situated close to Park City and only 40 minutes from Salt Lake City by fast interstate.

A last minute stay on a Saturday night because I'd been feeling sick and wasn't up to making the drive late and in the dark back over to Salt Lake and everything in Heber was booked. We almost decided to drive home but called Holiday Inn, expecting the price to be well out of our budget. We lucked out and the on duty manager gave us a walk-in special on a room out of a block that'd just been cancelled. Not only was she willing to give us a special (not knowing that at full price we had the option of walking out -- it's not like we *had* to have a place to stay), but she also was kind enough to give us a bump up to a room with an in-room hot tub at no extra charge! The lobby, room, and breakfast areas were all clean and well kept and the staff we interacted with were pleasant and professional.

We had spent 2 weeks in Utah & Colarado and had booked this hotel for our last night before returning to SLC for our flight home to Scotland. We arrived very early afternoon and as we expected, our room was not ready. The lady on the desk was so helpful and tried to see if there was another room for us. We opted to do some sight seeing until it was ready. We had booked a room with spa bath but both were being used by longer stay people. However they gave us a double queen room at a good discount and we just used the spa by the pool- it was lovely. The very spacious room was first class and the beds comfortable. Breakfast was included and made a lovely start to the day with cereals, bacon, eggs, toast, muffins, coffee, orange juice and delicious pancakes you made yourself! A super finish to a fantastic holiday!

I usually stay at this hotel with my son and 2 daughters and we usually have a great time, however this last visit was quite upsetting for my family. Apparently the General Manager had done something wrong and was being escorted out by the Police Department and was using every profanity in the book in front of my family and I. I, along with my 6 yr old son and 12&14 year old daughters had to leave the lobby and decided to go ahead and stay elsewhere. Tammy, the front desk manager allowed me to cancel my reservation and I ended up staying in Park City at a hotel called The Yarrow. I just thought I would review this hotel because apparently they are in need of a more professional "Manager" to run the place.There were other guests in the lobby and I am sure they feel the same way I do. This Hotel has good accommodations and a great pool, but if you are looking for a "professional" guest service environment, dont stay here until they replace the current General Manager. Very Unprofessional.

Poorly managed and very cheap/thrifty ownership.
Employees are pleasant, the facility is newer & decent , however the ownership, TNG Heber LLC is not training it's employees or investing funds to keep the facility functional.
The lobby guest computer is labeled "broken" but is really supposed to have been replaced and the front desk doesn't know why it is taking so long. They will let guests use the front desk computer behind the counter to print boarding passes or check email. However both of those printers work poorly and "have not been printing dark enough for a while now".
Each floor is set up to have an ice machine at one end, however the one on the 3rd floor has been disconnected & totally removed. The first floor unit is broken but there is still an active, usable one on the 2nd floor.
Our initial room # 316 looked out into a blank wall. The front desk lady had not been up to the rooms and so did not know of the obscurred view. When I asked for another room, she moved us to #320, which was fine for a view of the Valley. However, the ice bucket had left-over popcorn in it from the previous guest. The maid had put a fresh, clean plastic bag in it. The pull-up stopper in the bathroom sink was gone and the light bulb in the entry hall was out. When I mentioned all the problems I was encountering to Michael at the front desk, he noted that I was really being very nice about all of the things that were screwed up in the motel, but "Hey, this is only a Holiday Inn Express---what did you expect?". I guess for $120 per night AAA rate including taxes, I was expecting too much. I asked Michael if they had an in-house engineer, he said "yes" and promised to have him replace the bad entry lightbulb that evening. It never happened.
The shower head is arched up, weird and up so high you need to stand on the edge of the tub to reach it to adjust the water flow.
I am a Priority Club member and was greeted cheerfully when we checked in. Later when I was checking email behing the front desk, another Priority Club member was greeted by Michael and given 2 bottles of water that "all Prioority members are offered"---excect us, I guess.
The front desk people were not very well trained and ownership appears to be pinching pennies on any repairs or replacements.

Room Tip: Don't get stuck in room 216 or 316 unless you like looking at a blank wall.

We happened upon this Holiday Inn Express almost by accident while traveling. The exterior was beautiful with a manicured landscape. Upon check-in, the staff was wonderful. The price was in line with other Holiday Inn Expresses. The room was fantastic. Clean and inviting. We will definitely stay here again and would recommend this motel to all.

Everything was absolutely perfect! Beautiful Hotel. The front desk associate was very kind and informative..... she even suggested a few things to do while in town. The pool was really nice, with bathrooms located in the pool area (which makes it really nice for those of us with little kids!) It was a busy weekend because of a baseball tournament, but everything was still in tiptop shape. Breakfast was more than just carbs, including eggs, scrambled and boiled, sausage and then the usual pancakes, muffins, etc. Very nice breakfast area, the only thing I could see that could maybe be improved is the space... very small area, not very many tables. It was a very busy weekend though and the hotel was sold out. The breakfast attendant kept things full and clean! The room was dark and the cooler kept it at the perfect temperature for sleeping! Thanks!
