We went to Alamosa to visit my boyfriends daughter who is going to school there. Of all the hotels I checked out, the Holiday Inn was the closest of the nice hotels. The Comfort Inn looked nice but it was another mile down the highway. The Rio also looked nice but it was full and on the other side of town. There are alot of motels, but they all looked really run down.

The room was big and had a mini fridge and a microwave. It was on the highway side but the noise never bothered either of us. It was clean and the furniture was newer. The pool is small but nice. They have a hot tub, sauna and very small gym. The breakfast was good and hit the spot. It is served from 6:30 till 9:30 am.

The hotel is right beside the 24 hour Walmart. It came in handy when we had to fill the rental car at 4 am. We went and bought a gift card as the pump didn't like my visa.

We had dinner one night at True Grit. It was really good. The steaks were a good size and done to perfection. I don't know the exact address but it's over the river.

No desk clerk answered the phone when the heater would not shut off. We actually went downstairs to "wake" someone up. We were informed that there was no maintenance available. So, we had the window open with cool hair meeting heater air. No one got any sleep. Also, the drains in the sink and tub were very slow. Finally, the scrambled eggs were inedible. We had to find a restaurant for breakfast. The hotel did not make any compensation, and when we asked for a corporate phone number, they did not think they had one. So, what do you think?

From appearances, this appears to be a standard highway side Holiday Inn Express. And for the most part, it is almost adequate considering there are practically no hotel choices in Alamosa. As to the positives, it was a quiet hotel and the rooms are larger than average. Now for the negatives…the bathroom was filthy. The toilet looked like it hadn’t been cleaned in months, including a deep mildew stain in the bowl and more details I’m going to skip. The reception staff was consistently unprofessional and unhelpful. For example, if you needed someone, they were usually out in front of the hotel smoking. As I stayed there two days, there was no “make up room now” placard, so on my way out one morning I pleasantly asked the front desk clerk if someone could make up my room in the morning hours and he acted as if it was the most difficult request he’d ever received. These are signs of a poorly managed hotel, though I’m guessing part of it is a lack of competition in the town.

The town itself is definitely not a hot destination, but it is the closest to the Great Sand Dunes National Monument and a pair of wildlife refuges which were the purpose of my visit. If you like to camp, I think this is one location you might want to skip booking a hotel.

This is a standard Holiday Inn Express in all respects EXCEPT that it sits very close to a busy highway. Make sure you get a room on the other side. They said they were full when we stayed there and would not move us. We didn't get much sleep with all the road noise. We had intended to stay longer, but checked out the next morning.

I arrived early at the hotel, even before check-in time. There was no problem letting me into my room. The front desk guy was very nice and helpful with my requests about the room location. The room was very nice as well, spacious and in good condition. I used the pool which I also found spotlessly clean and in great shape. There were even chocolate cookies available in the lobby in the afternoon. The breakfast was standard HIE, the breakfast room had enough tables to accommodate everybody who wanted to eat simultaneously. The hotel is certainly the best option in Alamosa and is also a good base to make side trips (Great Sand Dunes NP, Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad...). It is located right next to a Walmart Supercenter, convenient if you need to do some shopping as well. This was a great stay, the Holiday Inn Express in Alamosa is one of the better chain properties. I am surprised they haven't been honored a "Commendable" or "Excellence" status. They really deserve it.

We choose this hotel because we were traveling with 3 small children and needed a room with a microwave and fridge. Everything in the room worked and the staff was very nice.The breakfast was on of the best. The kids enjoyed the indoor pool. I have no complaints about this hotel and would stay here again.
