I stayed at the HIE in Glenwood Springs for one night after attending a wedding in nearby Carbondale. Typically, I'm the type of person who searches for the cheapest deals in hotel rooms, graciously looking past noise and filth just to save a couple of bucks. In fact, were it not for some friends also staying the hotel, I probably would have looked for a hotel in the 60-80 dollar range. However, the extra money I spent was well worth it as our experience was fabulous!
First, the hotel and room was clean. Really, really clean. The room was extremely spacious, everything worked, and it was super quiet. We had the breakfast in the morning--above average for a hot hotel breakfast. Be sure to try the crazy instant pancake machine that they've got. All of the staff that we encountered were very nice.
This hotel would be ideal if you're looking to ski Aspen without Aspen costs. The drive is about 35 minutes. Of course, Glenwood is cool too. The only drawback that I can think of about the hotel is that it's not a comfortable walking distance to the downtown area (south side of I-70 as other hotels might be. But if you're a walker, by all means, do it!
All in all, this experience might convince me to upgrade to Holiday Inns in my future travels...
