“Good but not luxurious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

I liked the Western style entrance and lobby. The room was typical HI Express but didn't appear as luxurious as others I've stayed in. There was a couch but no coffee table, Staff was very courteous even though there was a problem with the initial room we were assigned. I had requested a North side room away from the highway and received one facing the Interstate. There is enough noise to make this desirable. Lady at breakfast was very solicitous giving us all kind of tales about Ogallala history. Some small problems in room such as tissue holder coming off its container every time you pulled one. I had reserved in advance because I saw "only 3 rooms left" on the website but the hotel was far from full and I suspect I would have received a better walk in rate.

Room Tip: Get a room on North side away from highway on 2nd floor.

Thank you for your input and the observation regarding your booking through a 3rd party website. It is generally always best to book with either the IHG (Holiday Inn Express) web site, the 800 number, or the property direct to get the Best Price Guarantee. Unfortunately, all hotels utilize the other 3rd party web sites which charges us a commission and a higher rate than we offer, however, we have no control over them making statements regarding how many rooms are left in their selling inventory allotted to them to sell. If a rate is lower than the property direct, that usually means you are making a non-cancellable reservation and/or possibly a reservation that requires a minimum length of stay along with being non-cancellable. Another draw back to using a 3rd party site is that you are not able to request directly with our front desk staff your desires to be located in a particular type of room and/or location in the hotel. I apologize for any inconvenience associated with your misconceptions prior to arriving at the hotel. Thank you for your business. We appreciate your confidence in staying at an IHG/Holiday Inn Express, and we hope to serve your lodging needs again in the near future.

Quiet clean and comfortable rooms with friendly staff. Plus warm breakfast and good coffee. Gave us a good tip to eat at the local Mexican restaurant opposite site of I80. We are now looking at being regulars at Holiday Inn Express

Everything I expected happened. The staff was professional, polite, and presentable. The room was clean and presentable. The bath water was hot with good water pressure (a deal maker or breaker). The internet and TV worked great. The king bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was complete and tasty with everything a Holiday Inn Express normally provides. This is the second time I've stayed here and happily will return again.

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.
