Not manny options when you run out of daylight in this part of Nebraska. This was a welcomed stop.

Book with 1-800 number and sign up for Priority Points, even if you never use it again.

The friendly front desk girl said she always notes these members and takes special care of them.

Try to get a room on the north side (away from freeway) and on first floor. You will have your own outside door. Super convenient!

Right on the interstate, comfortable clean and friendly. What more do you want. The breakfast choice was amazing, they even had a pancake machine that once you pressed the button, 1 minute later, out pops a hot fresh pancake. Nice

I've stayed at several Holiday Inn Express. This one is a step above. The country decor is wam and inviting. The breakfast very nice and plentiful. The breakfast staff was the most gracious and very friendly. The room was clean and comfortable. I will return again hopefully in some nicer weather other than -13 degrees.

Thank you for your kind observations. All department team members try hard to consistently provide the pleasant experience that you describe. If we could control the outside temperature we'd surely give it a try, however, you're always welcome in to our warm lobby with the continuous burning fireplace to warm you up on any cold day. We look forward to serving you again soon. Hopefully on a much warmer day.

We've stayed at this property before. It's clean and the staff are friendly. If your room is on the south side of the building, it can be noisy because of Interstate 80 but we were on the back side and it was fine. They've made some improvements to the free breakfast since we were there last and it was fine.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back side of the hotel, away from the interstate.

We're happy you chose us again and your stay was enjoyable. We appreciate your comments and input in an ongoing effort to better serve our guests. We've found that by leaving the HVAC unit on constant fan covers up the noise from the late night Interstate traffic if a concern. We also have free foam ear plugs if desired. Traffic is more prominent during the daylight hours and it lessens greatly later in the evening and early morning hours. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

We have stayed numerous times at the Holiday Inn Express Ogallala and each time we have never had any issues. The accommodations are always great. The complimentary breakfast is very tasty. Access from Interstate 80 is easy.

I'll be honest, I didn't expect a lot from a Holiday Inn Express in the middle of nowhere, Nebraska. I was definitely proven wrong on this one. This is a beautiful property. The whole hotel is very clean. The staff is extremely welcoming and kind. This property is "country" themed. It makes for a very unique experience (in a great way). It seems that chain hotels in small towns dip below the standard set by the brand, but this hotel exceeded my expectations by a lot. Thank you!

Our staff works hard to satisfy our guests, and I will pass on your review to let them know that you noticed and recognized the efforts we strive to achieve. Our proximity to the Interstate with several restaurant options nearby and in town make Ogallala a convenient, less crowded place to stop when traveling to or through Ogallala on I-80. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
