“Ok basic hotel, but overpriced”
Reviewed June 4, 2009

For what I paid for our room, I expected a lot more from this hotel. It's got all the basics, but you would think that everything would be a lot 'nicer' for the price. The rooms are (relatively) clean, but the decor is dated and the walls are thin. You can hear neighbors pretty well. Also our A/C unit was noisy and seemed to have to work overtime all night to keep the room cool. On the plus side the breakfast was good and the ladies that work there keep it spotless. I don't think that I'll stay there again unless it gets fully remodeled. I feel that there's nicer and / or less expensive places nearby.

This hotel is like a little oasis off of the highway. Everything was clean and comfortable. Great wi-fi and pet-friendly. Colby is a great little town and the Holiday Inn Express is very nice.

Very friendly and clean; however, we upgraded to whirlpool suite and not worth it. No pressure on tub jets at all-was like sitting in a $50.00 bath

This was one of those trips when you get tired of driving for the day and need a decent place to stay. Unfortunatly didn't get a chance to check out the place since we checked in late and was on the road early the next morning. BUt the room was clean and same for the bathroom. The room had a big (42in?) flat screen tv which was a nice surprise. Too bad breakfast started at only 6:30am since we had to check out before that and didn't get a chance to try it. Overall nice place to spend the night with the kids when on the road.

I stayed one night on my way to Graduation. This is your typical Holiday Inn Express. Room was clean, Breakfast was crowded, Not many tables. But it it was a holiday weekend. AC needs improvement. I like it cool. AC couldn't keep up. Over all stay was OK. I have notice that the prices of Holiday inns are going up. I paid $104 for a Friday night. Good for as one or two night stay.

It was OK but that's it. If you need to stay overnight in this area it's clean and the beds are fair. Breakfast is included, but it's all pre made warm up food :-( Sure doesn't live up to there Holiday Inn Express TV commercials. I was disappointed.
