“Nice place in western Kansas”
Reviewed September 26, 2007

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Colby, Kansas twice this September (once going out west and then coming back). We have stayed at this place eight times now on trips out west and back and although we have not stayed anywhere else in western Kansas we consider this a very nice place to stay. We are members of the Holiday Inn travel club so we always get a nice, non-smoking room on the first floor with a king bed. The room is spacious and clean and the bed is comfortable. A nice continental breakfast is served in the morning. The front desk has always been courteous and helpful. There are no mini-fridges in the rooms but there is an ice machine down the hall. There are several restaurants within a short distance (we usually eat at Montana's Mikes-decent fare). The next nearest town to the west is Goodland (in Mountain Time Zone whereas Colby is in Central) and to the east is Oakley, both of which, I believe, are a bit smaller than Colby. The H.I. Express does give discounts and the total was a bit under $90.00.

  • Liked — Rooms are very nice and clean.
  • Disliked — Can't say as there was anything I did not like.

This was supposedly a newer hotel out of all the ones in Colby, but it seemed kind of dirty already. The breakfast was nice and so was the pool. It is located next to Wal-Mart (which is always a plus). I would stay here again, but nothing too impressive.

Colby didn't have much to do, but if you are heading west thru Kansas, this is the last place to stay. Goodland has some hotels, but Colby is definitely bigger.

Great place to stop for a night. I was driving across the country and this was a last minute stop. It was much nicer than expected and the free breakfast was a great way to start off the day. If ever driving through again I would stop here for sure.

Motel was clean and comfortable. But you need a reason to go to Colby. Only two restaurants in town and neither were impressive. I would suggest you keep driving if you can.

Good place to stay for the night. Clean and ready when needed. Is consistent with other Holiday Inn expresses. Beware that it does allow pets (if you have allergies).

Good stay. I was part of a church choir group with 16 rooms. We did not have any of the problems listed in previous reviews. Our double was clean and very cool. Good a/c. Nice shower. Didn't hear any noise from the halls. Staff was friendly. The night staff wasnt sure they could put the stay on my Priority Club Rewards because I didnt pay for the room, but said they would check into it. The next morning, it was taken care of. The breakfast was OK. Juice and Milk and enough bagels, danishes and do-nuts for us all. I was there at 6am and the plates were full. There was plenty of food all morning as our group trickled in. The Wal-Mart being next door was a plus for day 3 of our 10 day trip. I would stay here again anytime.

Location off the interstate is a plus. Pet friendly but there is a fee. High speed internet a plus, but make sure they turn it on. Also free breakfast. Room cleanliness a minus--dustballs on floor, garbage behind night stand, bathroom floors dirty. Staff customer service was also minus, but we found the other establishments we visited (Arby's, Dairy Queen, Walmart all had the same attitude--slow and unfriendly). Overall, the hotel is newer and for a one night stay worth the $60.00
