After looking around on Trip advisor, I decided to go with this Holiday Inn because of the breakfast buffet, and the rating. Aside from one little snag and one major issue, I would stay here again. We live in Midland, TX and visited Amarillo for my oldest child's school function (Southwest Music Festival)

I stayed with my husband, and 3 children...ages 12,7,& 1 yr old. After attending my child's school performance, my husband and I were tired and since we are not familiar with Amarillo decided to look for the hotel, and hoped that we could check in early. it was around noon when we arrived at the hotel, and the two lovely girls at the front desk were very friendly, and super helpful. They checked to see if our room was ready and immediately allowed us to check in. Our room was on the second floor, somewhere above the meeting rooms.

The room was very nice... the mini fridge, micro and coffee maker were a plus...even though we didn't actually have a need for them it was really nice to know they were available just incase! The room had two Queen beds, and just enough space in between for our baby's playpen in between... the room temp was cool, and the T-stat was easy to locate and adjust. The bathroom is just beautiful! I fell in love with the lighted mirror! haha! sorry but it's really nice....on the other hand a minus, My son brought along our 12 yr old's kindle fire, and being that they are only connected to the internet via wi-fi, he wasn't able to really do a whole lot other than play on the usual "boring" games... I also would have liked it better if I could have done some web surfing on it, instead of using my little android screen. If free Wi-fi is available, I wish they could have explained this better.

After we dropped our things off in our room we went to lunch at the nearby Golden Corral... so glad it was so close, as I mentioned above we are not familiar with Amarillo, and while we had he GPS on my phone,. it was nice to be able to drive a few minutes down Amarillo Blvd. and have a nice big lunch. After lunch we took the baby and our 7 yr old to the room for a short nap,upon our arrival this time,*plus*we saw a gentlman knocking on our room door carrying a little gift bag, it was a little welcome and Happy Cinco De Mayo gift... little snacks and a bottle of water!!! so SWEET!!! The halls were a little noisey, but to be expected since it was around 3 or 4 (regular check in time) after a while we decided to meet our daughter's school at Wonderland Amusement park until closing, and afterwards dinner.

Upon arriving at the Hotel to finally get the rest we all so desired... we saw that there was a party going on in one of the meeting rooms... pictures were being taken, happy people and LOUD booming music.... We thought nothing of it....until we got to our room that is...... * MINUS* it was as if the speakers were in our room... the booming of the base made everything shake(remember I told you or room was somewhere above a meeting room?) it was barely 9 or 9:30..maybe 10 p.m. so we knew we would be in for a Longg night... (little did I know..tho..this was nothing) I called the front desk and explained the situation, I was informed that there was a wedding going on downstairs and the very apologetic gentleman said they'd asked the party to turn it down, but seemed they kept turning it up, and that the party was on til about 1 or 2 that night.***PLUS*** I let him know we had a little one and the whole sentance wasn't even out of my mouth when he said " Oh no, we would never expect you to! I can move you to the 3rd floor if you'd like, or if you prefer the second floor I can move you further down." Really??? That easy? I was so impressed! I asked for a room on the 3rd floor as far away from the meeting room end as possible... *Plus* They sent someone up to help us with the move and even brought up some snacks and sodas!!! After we got settled back in, everyone showered and got ready for bed, watched TV for a little bit we finally went to sleep.

**MINUS** Everyone slept well, except for me...Paper thin walls or Just really rude people???... It was about 4 in the morning and I was disgusted by the sounds coming from the room next door! Someone was really going at it, and was having a Great time ... For an entire non-stop hour! I thought it was probably the newly weds, but who knows! While the woman kept moaning and the bed kept banging on and on, My stomach churned and I prayed to GOD that my children did not wake up and hear what was going on... After the couple was satisified with themselves, and the lady told the man she loved him... It echoed as if they were in their Bathroom... they quieted down,... but I could not go to sleep... I had set my alarm to 7 A.m. so that I could get up and get ready and get everyone ready for breakfast, but it was now 5 or 5:30 a.m. and I had only had about 4 or 4 1/2 hours sleep... I got about 30 min more sleep and was up and getting ready for the day.

I did not compain to management because A) What could the do to control these wild animals, and B) they had alread accommodated us earlier C) i didn't want to wake my kids...

Breakfast was great and we saw who our neighbors were... LOL..... still not sure which of the two it was but either one is funny to imagine... we stayed til check out time and went about our merry way... After such a long night, I couldn't wait to get home to some Real peace and quiet....

I would stay here again, but maybe if they could offer us a corner room with only one neighbor! or as far away from any people at all!!! haha!

Oh! we did try the pool or the fitness area, but did go down to look at them... kids wished the could have used it, but,....the morning "after" was too chilly, and I was too tired...and I kept thinking about the poop in the pool that I had read on a review before booking the hotel...lol...

Sorry for the lengthy review, but I write like I speak,.... A Lot! Hope it helps!

Thanks,

Room Tip: Ask for rooms as far away from meeting hall as possible.

We stayed here one night in two rooms. Rooms were a tad on the small side but very clean, beds were very comfortable. We were however right above the lobby and the noise was annoying in the middle of the night when a large party came in from some function. The noise just carried straight into our rooms. Not sure why they would design a hotel with rooms so close to the lobby especially when there is a bar and mingling area right below. However, that was a minor annoyance in an overall enjoyable one night stay.

The breakfast was very good. The coffee real and the service was efficient.

Jennyi - Thank you for the awesome review. I apologize about the noise that you encountered in the lobby during your stay. I am really glad overall it was a great stay for you and your family. We definitely have rooms down each hallway that are away from the elevators and lobby areas and we can easily reassign rooms. Please let me know the next time you are in town and I will personally make sure you are in the quietest location of the hotel. Thank you for staying with us!!

This was the hotel we were really looking forward to staying in and it did not let us down. Everything about the hotel was top notch.The rooms were good size, the beds were very comfortable and they even had firm and soft pillows to choose from. The pool had a fun slide my kids played on. The only issue we had is the hot tub was not that hot. We could not believe the breakfast, it was like no other hotel we stayed at. The food was hot and Rudy was a great waiter. It had been a long time since we have stayed in a Holiday Inn but after this stay that will change.

I had read the reviews on TripAdvisor before we booked the Holiday Inn. The ratings were on-target. The hotel was excellent. The staff was superb; the room was very clean; the bed was very very comfortable (too comfortable, in fact); and the complimentary hot breakfast buffet was more than we expected. The eggs were real eggs (rather than what often seems like powdered scrambled eggs) and they made the pancakes when you asked for them. I have nothing bad to say about this Holiday Inn.

Our mattresses are definitely comfortable...in fact, I just sent information to another guest regarding the mattresses in our guestrooms. Breakfast is very important to us and I am ecstatic that it was perfect for you and your family. I hope to see you again soon!! Thank you again for the kind remarks.

Stayed here one night on a road trip. I was expecting an average chain hotel, but was completely surprised and impressed by the quality of this Holiday Inn! The lobby and rooms are beautiful. New and modern and impeccably clean. The beds were incredibly comfortable, the air conditioner worked perfectly, and the little beverage bar had a larger than normal mini-fridge, a microwave, and Wolfgang Puck coffee. The bed had labeled pillows (firm or soft). My son was over the moon about the water slide in the pool, and my husband appreciated the nice bar in the lobby. Most impressive of all, when we got to our room, there a was a personalized note welcoming us, and a gift bag with snack mix, candy, and bottled water. Wow! Top it off with the close proximity to restaurants and shopping, and this hotel is the best of the best!
