“Excellent Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

Stayed here on our way somewhere else. Newer hotel with nice staff. Got a bottle of water and snacks at check in which was nice. Breakfast was okay with lots of choices. Very convenient to the highway.

Comfortable, modern hotel. Convenient to Interstate 70 at exit 252. Attractive furnishings and comfortable bed. Modern bathroom fixtures. Good breakfast buffet with hot and cold offerings. Enjoyed dinner at Tucson Steakhouse on the other side of Salina, recommended by hotel desk staff.

I will not stay at this place again and will not refer anyone to this place. The hotel was clean enough...if you didn't look at the obscene graffti scratched on the inside of the elevator door or the flies landing on the happy hour offering...or the wolf spider hanging out on one of the curtains. Along with that, the shower in the room looked nice enough but it took me 20 minutes to wash and condition my hair because of the non-existent water pressure. On top of that, it was the slimiest soft water I have ever come across. Plus, the bed had an awful squeak when sitting down on it. Oh, and the bathroom outlet had been turned off. We asked for maintenance to check the shower. We were told that it was checked and cleaned but, next morning we had the same problem. We asked for the report to go to the hotel manager. I received a call the next day thanking me profusely for pointing out the problem but, no offer of a discount. We should have been offered a hefty discount or maybe even a free night for having to put up with the worst motel/hotel shower I have had to use! Breakfast was acceptable with actually very good coffee for hotel coffee. I've stayed in several other Holiday Inn Express and have never had a shower like this one. It ruined the entire stay.

Room Tip: Don't accept room 402

This was far and away one of the best Holiday Inns I've stayed at, and since I'm a member of their loyalty program, that's quite a few Holiday Inns in my day. The service was fantastic. We arrived a few minutes after their cocktail hour had technically just ended. The front desk told us to drop our bags off in the room and then head back down and they would make sure we were still served. They gave us wine and left the appetizers out for about another thirty minutes just to make sure we had our chance to partake. The room and the hotel is totally modern and comfortable. The bed was perfect and the bathroom was clearly designed with women travelers in mind. There was tons of storage in the bathroom and the water pressure in the shower was excellent. The hotel is in a good traveling location as well, but it's far enough off the interstate that it's not loud. We would stay here again if we were in the area.

Beautiful hotel, very well-kept. Convenient to the interstate, as well as nearby restaurants. Our room was big, clean, mattress comfy. The bathroom was immaculate. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty, and the staff member in charge was very attentive.

You could really tell the people at this Holiday Inn care about you. We checked in on a Friday evening and was told they had a manager's special. We've never saw that at a Holiday Inn before. We didn't know what to expect. We were shocked by the food. Peanuts, Chex Mix, delicious crackers (not the cheap kind), olives, a taco dip type of thing, fresh fruit, cheese, and some cold meat. We were really surprised and pleased of course. Also wine and beer if you were interested.

The room had everything we needed. Even a microwave and fridge area. It was wonderful. The breakfast the next morning was fantastic with a very caring employee that asked each person if they needed anything. Nothing bad to say about this hotel at all. Would definitely stay again if in the area.
