This is probably the best hotel within several hundred miles in either direction on the I-80. Well worth the stop. Ample parking, even for big trucks and trailers. Pet friendly with some nice walking paths behind the hotel. The breakfast staff were super friendly and helpful. Everything was spick and span!

Due to availability I spent two nights here and one at the Days Inn next door. Fancier (bigger rooms, better beds etc) than the Days inn next door but you pay for it. Nothing essential that the Days Inn doesn't have. Very nice holiday inn but a bit noisy at night and seems over-priced. Lots of breakfast options, friendly staff.... More

The hotel was an interesting Western decor and appears to be updated, clean overall... but a REALLY small eating area. Place was always packed in the mornings and mostly grabbed food and ate it in the rooms. Some of the rooms on the backside have both inside and exterior access to the room. The major drawback with the exterior access... More

Thank you for your thoughts associated with your stay. Ogallala is the Cowboy Capitol of Nebraska and our western themed property reflects the history associated with this region. During our summer fill season we get many groups and families with 4 or more persons in their party and at times the breakfast room does get very busy. The great room... More

This hotel was clean everywhere. From the moment I walked in I felt clean, which is important in a hotel. No weird smells or mugginess! The rooms are very spacious and the decor is comfortable. The beds were soft but not too mushy. The bedding was fluffy and long enough! The continental breakfast had everything you'd want in a breakfast!... More

I found the room to be clean and comfortable. The staff was efficient and very polite. The only downside was that this is right off of Interstate 80. We were on the back side of the hotel, so it didn't bother us much. The rooms are modern, but the lobby and breakfast area are very, very Western themed. Overall, a... More

We needed a place to stay overnight as we worked through some local stops on the Nebraska Passport program.
