We stayed here the end of April 2012. Great staff, nice clean rooms, updated decor. It is right off the interstate , very easy to get to. Some of the reviews mentioned the noise from the interstate. We stayed on the first floor, near the exit door on the interstate side. We did not hear any noise from the interstate while in our room. Very quiet. It was noisy when we walked outside, but that was no big deal. The pool was great, the kids loved it. Breakfast was awesome, with a very nice eating area. We would stay there again, without hesitation .

Stayed: April 2012

This is one of the newest HIX's I've stayed in. Right off the interstate. Nice spacious room, comfy bed, and breakfast was great (for the standard HIX options). I will definately stay here in the future.

I didn't notice the interstate noise that had been commented on, but I did notice that the newness that prompted many comments is beginning to wear off. The hotel is still beautiful, don't get me wrong, but there are dings and gouges on the walls and more "smudges" than you would find in a new building. The hotel was clean, even in the areas that I check for and most housekeepers forget (other than something small and suspicious on the wall in our room). The room size was very generous and the breakfast area was very adequate.Tthe pool was cold and the breakfast was typical Holiday Inn Express (I personally think that it's time that they kick it up a notch to healthy eating!), but I would stay here again due to the cleanliness. (As an aside, someone needs to redesign their entry and the curbs/medians. And what is with the big rocks everywhere? Sponsored by body shops in the area? No, we didn't get a door ding!)

The hotel is new, color scheme is a bit different. I didn't care for the bed, it had a plastic covering under the sheets? I don't know if that is for bed bugs or what. You can really hear the highway noise. Very clean, very efficient, nice furnishing. Great breakfast..not just your typical donut and coffee. Overall satisfactory stay

Stayed with a couple friends on our way out to Colorado. We got there late and the night auditor/front desk worker was very accommodating and courteous. The building is new, squeaky clean, and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. We all found Holiday Inn's new bedding to be REALLY comfortable and having a hot breakfast ready to go in the AM makes getting the day started a breeze. Nice job!

Room Tip: Large breakfast area - would be especially good for traveling groups, large families, weddings, etc.
