Holiday Inn Kearney
Ranked #13 of 22 Hotels in Kearney
Reviewed April 4, 2005

We ended up at the Holiday Inn after our first choice (the Holiday Inn Express) was full, and we'd spent a disappointing night in another property. This place will probably be our new favorite!

The facility and rooms were recently remodeled, in good repair, and clean. Our room was a standard size with two queen beds but they'd managed to include a cabinet unit with a small fridge and microwave. Also a comfortable armchair and desk with business-style chair. The beds had good overhead lighting. We had a bad "view" (looking out onto a weird interior storage space, obviously it used to be outside before an addition) but it was a minor matter.

It's a big hotel and it was full the weekend we were there. Parking was a little tight but we were never too far from our door. Outside entries require roomkey for access.

The pool area is great for families. It has two waterslides emptying into a pool for bigger kids grownups, and a wading pool with some water spray features and fun slides for little children. The adult pool is really too small to do much, but they shut down the slides for 20 minutes of every hour to allow people to swim. Plenty of seating and lots of towels available, too. There is also a whirlpool.

Upon check-in we received lots of coupons for discounts at the restaurant, the Captain's Table. We ate three breakfasts there and thought it was a good value with good service.

Front desk staff, maids, and pool staff were all courteous and efficient. Vending machines all worked, laundry facility was fairly clean, gift shop was well-stocked.

We'll stay here again, and I'd be comfortable recommending this hotel to anyone.

This hotel is the coolest hotel we've ever stayed in. They have an indoor waterpark with two large waterslides for adults and a great area for kids with waterslides, fountains and all kinds of activities. Plus a large whirlpool. The guest room had a microwave and refrigerator and the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever slept in! They have a restaurant there called the Captain's Table that was fantastic and our kids ate for free when we went down for dinner. We've stayed at other hotels in Kearney, the Ramada, Comfort Inn and Suites, but now we will never stay anywhere else except the Holiday Inn! Staff and their facilities are the best we've ever experienced - anywhere.
