Holiday Inn Express Lincoln South
Ranked #26 of 61 Hotels in Lincoln
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 13, 2014

Family matters brought us back to Lincoln for a short stay and we opted for the Holiday Inn Express South as we have in the past. The location is fairly close to where we need to visit in town and the price is better than some downtown hotel options. This location can be far on the edge of town for some but is has advantages in being close to gas/grocery/dining locations. The staff here are very friendly and accommodating. We had an issue with our bathroom on the first morning and couldn't use the shower. The front desk attendant offered to move us down the hall and the room was much larger so we were very happy. Plus the matter was resolved quickly so we were doubly pleased. The king size beds are a super bonus when sharing with kids and they are quite comfortable as well. The complimentary breakfast is fairly good and always well stocked so you can grab a quick bite and be on your way.

This hotel is not really close to anything, but the rooms are very clean, and the beds were super comfy. Our room looked as though it had been updated recently, including the bed. The shower was good, and had good water pressure. I wish that I would have known that the hotel was so far from the centre of the city, because I could have booked something downtown for much cheaper.

The door was opened by the night auditor! We walked into the hotel and felt like 5 star guests! The auditor was my favorite part of the stay! He was welcoming and polite! He waited to run his audit until I arrived. Amazing service is what stands out to me. The best Holiday Inn Express on the planet! The renovations at the hotel were evident which made me feel that I mattered to this hotel. Breakfast was always stocked! I was amazed at how quickly the complimentary server kept the food filled. It was hot food! The coffee was hot. The hotel staff greeted us throughout the hotel all morning. They all had smiles and even made conversation. I felt like they had time for me! Kudos to the management and the staff!

Me and my daughter went to Lincoln to sign her up for college and stayed 2 nights in a double king room, it was great having a king bed for each of us to stretch out and relax, downfall was that the beds are a little worn looking when arrival to the room, dips in beds, the 4 big soft and firm pillows that are marked on the pillowcases def helped get a decent sleep. The rooms were very clean (except for the 2 wire hangers we found above the open closet oops! housekeeping)but other than the looks of the beds and the left behind hangers the rooms were great. Free continental breakfast and the managers reception were good. The hallways were verymuggy/ humid for some reason it was almost nicer outside even though it was an upper 80's/humid day outside. Front desk was very nice and helpful as well as the housekeepers. The hotel is on the southend of town, walmart/Sams is across the busy street as well as some smaller stores. Greenfields restaurant is walking distance as is a gas station. There was no outside noise so that was nice and the room has it's own thermostat unit to control the A/C.....Husker fans, it is about a 20 minute drive to campus

Room Tip: Our room faced the back of the building and we had a nice view of trees and the small parking lot in...

We were hoping our hotel would be close to the freeway...unfortunately, for our need, this hotel is in the far south edge of the city and about a 20 minute drive to/from the freeway. There is one restaurant within walking distance...to get to other restaurants one must drive. Even though this is a relatively new hotel, we were a tad disappointed with the general overall cleanliness of the hotel...that being said, our room looked cleaner than the entrance and hallway areas. We left the hotel around 05:00 hours...the night manager was very helpful in making sure we had bagels, yogurt, fruit and juice available to take with us...a kind gesture.

Price for our room was higher than equivalent H.I.E. in other cities.

The location of this hotel may be great for business travel...but for those who are passing through Lincoln you should look for the many alternative hotels located along the freeway.

We were traveling all week with our two toddlers, ages 1 and 2, and really wanted a separate area for them so that we didn't have to sit in the dark at 8pm when we put them to bed. The manager was so kind. He let us look first at a couple of options and even gave us a great deal at the last minute to keep us from going elsewhere. We absolutely LOVED the suite he put us in...we could have lived there if needed. There was a great kitchenette and even a second bedroom for the baby. I'd never seen such a room as this. Thanks so much!

Room Tip: Don't be afraid to ask to see a couple of rooms before you decide. The time spent is well worth...

Once again I found myself in Lincoln Nebraska needing to stay for several days. One phone call and again Quanetta found a way to make the stay pleasant. I was to stay at another downtown Lincoln Hotel, which was very nice, but very inconvenient due to parking and construction inside the building. She was able to arrange for a very comfortable room on the 1st floor because I had my bicycle with me and wanted to keep it inside at night. The staff here was very pleasant and the room was clean. I could not ask for a better stay.
