“Very Good in La Junta”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

This place was amazing. Breakfast was probably the best on our travel Colorado week vacation. The pancake machine was amazing and very unique. There were main juices as well as orange, guava, passion fruit juice which we didn't try. Rooms were very quiet which is much different from what I heard. Service was wonderful, and gave us the right room no hassle. It was good enough and the pool was very warm, but the hot tub spit out a chemical that made my eyes burn. The main con and the reason it is 4 stars only is because the pool lights didn't work right and took literally 5 minutes to turn on after we called the front desk and that is why this spectacular hotel is only 4 stars and not 5.

Room Tip: Everyone says it was loud but on the 125 area it was silent.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

We stayed one night here and both my partner and I thought the stay was okay but we probably wouldn't stay at this hotel again. The room only had sheer curtains and you couldn't close the blackout curtains which weirded me out since you could see outside. Also, the window opened and didn't have a lock-not reassuring when you're on the ground floor. The breakfast fare was okay but no fresh waffles or anything. Room was very clean and location was nice.

I'm originally from the area, and this hotel about as good as it gets within a 60 mile radius of La Junta. Friendly staff, comfortable bed, edible breakfast (but if you want a great breakfast, visit the Copper Kitchen downtown).
A minor complaint: The window was broken and wouldn't lock. Also, the door latch was a bit funky, and the door must have been left ajar by housekeeping because it wasn't fully shut when we got there. We just made sure there were no creepers lurking in the closets before we got comfortable (hah). Considering these issues with the door and the window, I found it comical that the hotel has a "hotel safety tips" sheet on the dresser that instructs visitors to make sure doors and windows are locked at all times. Had I been on the first floor, or in a bigger city, it may have been an issue, but I know the area, and it is generally pretty safe. Visitors not familiar with the area may be a little unnerved if they have a similar experience though.

Overall, I'd recommend this place over all of the motels in town besides maybe the Hampton Inn since I've never stayed at that particular one.

We felt very welcome when we entered the front door. Very clean homie lobby and eating area. Staff was quick to get us checked in. Their breakfast included biscuit and gravy! Room was clean with nice pillows, all except the noicie fan in the bath.

Room Tip: South end of the hotel, unless you like the trains!

This is a pretty standard Holiday Inn Express. Good Wifi, HDTV, comfortable beds, good shower, standard HIE breakfast, etc. - all what I've come to expect from this chain. No surprises. Convenient location on east edge of town.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Clean, new, friendly, great free breakfast (served on time by friendly staff) makes this the place to stay when visiting La Junta. The main road runs parallel to the railroad tracks so train noise is unavoidable since the businesses in town are along the road and railroad. Staff was friendly. Price was reasonable. Only issue is that they seem to be full on weekends so make your reservations in advance.

Room Tip: Side away from railroad would be preferred if possible.

We stayed at this Hotel for one night, during our Motorcycle trip. The staff was very attentive and friendly. The Hotel and the rooms were clean and inviting. The rate paid was very competitive and included a decent breakfast. The Hotel is located right on Hwy 50 which makes it very convenient for travelers. Be aware that the Hotel is located very close to a train track and train yard, which is quite noise at times.
Overall it was a pleasant experience and we will stay at this Hotel again anytime.
