Our room was clean and we arrived late at night so we were happy to find a holiday inn in such a remote location. Overall, however, the hotel had a worn feeling to it. The beds were fine (we had a 2 queen bed room on the first floor), but not great and the bathroom was clean, but not spotless. The kleenex box was down to one tissue (one of my pet peeves), but otherwise the room was fine. There was a fridge and microwave, but I didn't look in either as we were there for such a short time. Breakfast was the standard fare, but the staff who was stocking it and cleaning the area spent most of her time watching TV and the front desk staff spent that time making personal calls (they were loud enough that we could hear the details over the tv). The pool is apparently used by the local residents as there seemed to be some sort of water aerobics class going on and people were coming in and heading straight to the pool. Since the pool is small, I can't imagine you'll get in a morning dip around this group, so you might want to keep going if the pool is one of your reasons for stopping. You can feel fine about staying if you have to but I'd go on to Scottsbluff if possible.

In this remote area, this property is very welcome. Our room was spotless. We were given a later checkout to accommodate our schedule. Do not hesitate to stay here.

We arrived before official check in time but the front desk girl was able to check us in and was very helpful with local info recommending Ken & Dale's to eat as we fancied steak - good choice.
It is set on the main highway so easy to find and walking distance to K Mart & Arby's was right next door.
The room was large with a microwave & fridge. The lighting was good but there was a bulb out over the washbasin which had a row of 'dressing room' style bulbs. The basin was outside the bathroom.
Everything was typical HI Express including the yummy cinnamon rolls for breakfast.
At 17.30 there was a 'Manager's Special' advertised. It was actually about half an hour later as the poor girl from reception was also responsible for setting that up so while she was doing that the queue was building up at the desk as that's prime check in time. There could have been a holiday or sickness problem but she really shouldn't be expected to do everything at that time as someone is going to have to wait. They offered german sausage, white rolls, peppers & sauerkraut & crisps with iced tea and soft drink. The coffee was cold.
We spent the afternoon exploring Alliance & were pleasantly surprised as I thought it was the 'back of beyond' and we were really in town to visit Carhenge but the town was cute and there is a great museum.
Nebraska has lots of trains running through and while there was train noise we didn't notice it enough to affect sleep.

This is one of the poorest Holiday Inn properties I've been to. They do not honor the AAA discount. The furniture was stained and the linens were worn. Food was left in my refrigerator and housekeeping acted like I was too demanding expecting it to be removed. Manager's reception was posted to be 2 hours long -- didn't even hit the 90 min. mark as I walked down to see it shut down lock, stock, and barrel. The Holiday Inn Express in Scottsbluff is a much better choice and if you are going north, I'd stay at the Best Western in Chadron.

We stayed at 3 different Holiday Inn Expresses, and this was the 3rd. Each one featured a very much above average breakfast. The swimming pool and hot tub were great. I did not really feel like I was in Alliance, Nebraska! We had a great time.
One note of caution though: if you are in the mood for pizza, do NOT order from the Pizza Hut in Alliance! We had a horrible experience with them from beginning to end.
The hotel desk staff were helpful and accommodating, even in the midst of our bad experience with Pizza Hut. I was late to breakfast but the desk staff still let me get what I wanted.

First off the place is great, clean, comfortable, well maintained, great breakfast, fantastic staff. I just feel the price for the area was a bit much. Maybe it's being a part of the chain and paying for the name. The also charged $2.50 per minute on long distance calls, so don't forget your cell phone.
