“Typical small town chain motel”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

The hotel is relatively new and clean. The motel seemingly benefits from an oil drilling boom in the area. The breakfast service was out of certain items well before closing with no attendant in the room until she was found elsewhere. The exercise room had a water server but the bottle was empty and there were no cups had there been water. Maybe the oil boom allows them to be a little lax on details.

Upon checking in I had a room with a king bed and was surprised that there was a chair and ottoman in the room. It's nice to be able to sit in a chair and relax after driving all day and not have to lay on a bed. If you are in a room that faces the interstate it's a little noisy in the evening but quiets down as it gets later. The rooms are clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. It's the typical HIE breakfast which is good and I enjoy. I would stay here again but would ask for a room that does not face the interstate.

Dear easiwin1948,
Thank you for your wonderful review. We're very happy to hear that your experience with us was a positive one, and you enjoyed most aspects of your stay. We noticed there was a slight concern about "value", and we do understand that an energy boom in the area has driven lodging prices up dramatically. This increase in prices is what makes our outstanding guest service an absolute must. Once again, we thank you for a wonderful review, and look forward to serving you even better in the future.

We chose this hotel because I could use my rewards night points for a room and it was on our route of travel. However, when trying to book a room with IHG rewards program, I ran into nothing but obstacles and had to wait far too long for a representative. Front desk agent, Ruby Austin, went above and beyond to insure that I was able to use my rewards points. She was persistent at getting a room booked for us. The front desk staff made us feel welcome. Kudos to Ruby Austin for making our stay a great experience at the Big Spring Holiday Inn Express! I would definitely stay at this hotel again if my travels took me to the area! The breakfast was great too!

Clean rooms and plenty of extras. There are plenty of goodies like fresh cookies and packaged snacks. Free bottled water (even though it's not Coke brand). The breakfast is pretty good, but best of all it's free food. If you have to stay in Big Spring, your best option is Holiday Inn Express!

I thought that the staff working at the hotel were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were also kept very clean and neat. The outdoor pool and spa were always kept clean, with a nice area to relax in the sun. They also always had bottles of water in the room and at the front desk which was wonderful because of the heat. The continental breakfast was also great, as well as the snacks offered at the front desk all day, every day. I had a very pleasant, relaxing stay.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for six months while working on a large construction project in the Big Spring area. The staff bent over backward to make me feel at home, take care of my every need and even brought me a to make me feel at home. Housekeeping kept my room immaculate, front desk took care of reservations, called in dining reservations, and knew my name by the second day. Ruby Austin on the front desk fantastic! Took care of laundry, baked pies and cookies, kept billing correct, checked to make sure I was ok after a long day and no effort was too great. Be sure to ask for her if there are any problems, she is an outstanding problem solver and very empathetic to guest concerns.

Room Tip: Rooms on South side quieter and darker at night.

This Holiday Inn Express sets the standard for all Holiday Inn Expresses. (Note: I'm a Platinum member so I've stayed at more than my fair share) Ruby (front desk cashier) always recognizes me and calls me by my first name, which only sets the tone for the entire stay. There's always free bottled water and pre-packaged snacks (Chip Ahoy cookies, Keebler Sandies, Cheez-its, etc.) at the front desk. And, Ruby always has freshed baked cookie awaiting when you return from a "day in the field". The work out room is slightly aged, and the treadmill was out of operation, but has a small "universal" type weight machine along with elliptical, stair stepper and stationary bike. The breakfast is complete with an excellent staff that keeps things filled. (Coffee, refrigerated items, plenty of fresh fruit varieties, etc.) This is ALWAYS my first choice in hotels when business brings me to this part of Texas. It's always a great stay!!

Room Tip: Rooms away from I-20 are quieter; however, the AC/Heater fan is more than capable of covering the no...
