We were in town on business & stayed in room 235. -Nice hotel selection for central Nebraska. -Some areas of the hotel seemed dated, i.e. guest rooms. -Bathroom floor too slippery. -Tub drain was clogged/slow to drain. -Good water pressure. -Good working WiFi in guest rooms & meeting space. No trouble logging on. -Good restaurant. Good food. Staff very attentive.... More

I stayed for 5 days at the HI, and I am very happy with the experience I had. The room was awesome, big and spacious. I do agree with another review, there is a lack of windows in the room. The front desk staff are awesome. Very friendly and helpful and super nice. The one fellow suggested to go shopping... More

Planned a mini vacation and picked this hotel because of the pool. It has slides but no real swimming area. Food and drinks are not allowed in swimming area or the room located off of the pool area. So not sure of the purpose of that room! Bottled water wasn't even allowed! The pool staff was being paid to sit... More

Great Hotel stay. Our 4yr old son loved the water slide and pool area. Fantastic value for what we paid (about$100). Staff was pleasant and hotel was modern. Only thing could have been better was if breakfast was inlcuded.

I spend a lot of time in Kearney, but this was my first stay at the Holiday Inn. We were impressed from the moment we checked in! The room was extremely clean with new-looking carpet, a huge tv, and a lot of space to unpack. The best part of this stay was the outrageously comfortable bed. Check-out time was at... More

This is by far the worst Holiday Inn I have ever stayed in.The WiFi is terrible, I had to constantly switch between the guest and meeting internet stream to stay connected. There are no outside windows in the room.

Attended a conference and stayed at the Holiday Inn in Kearney. Conference rooms were fine with good AV help available and location was close to the freeway and many eating choices nearby. The accommodations were typical Holiday Inn (clean and comfortable) but the outstanding part of this motel is the pool area. The hot tub was fine but the pool... More

My business stay at this hotel was very disappointing. The decor is very outdated and the hotel itself does not seem well maintained. There was an odd smell as you walked through the hallways, and even in the room itself. I requested a king size bed, and they accomodated that by putting me in a wheelchair accessible room. I would... More

This is just another example of why Holiday Inn is my favorite hotel chain. Clean, well managed and fair price. It is alot easier to write a lot about a "bad hotel" than it is a good one. Suffice to say you will not be disappointed.
