This Holiday Inn Express on the west side of Amarillo is relatively new. We had a room with two double beds. It had a good-sized closet and dresser, two TVs (one in the bathroom!), a hair dryer, an iron and ironing board, and a kitchenette containing a small refrigerator and microwave oven, a sink, some cabinets, and a coffee maker. There was an ethernet connection in addition to the free wi-fi. The beds were large and very firm. (A little too firm.) The room was quiet. We didn't experience any noise problems.
The bathroom was larger than usual with a large sink and plenty of counter space, which was nice. Unfortunately they didn't take advantage of the space to install a large soaking tub. Instead, the tub was low and narrow, causing me to bash my arm into the wall if I didn't stand at an angle. The shower curtain did not give adequate coverage, so the floor tended to get wet. The water pressure in the shower was kind of low, but there was plenty of hot water and the temperature control was good. The shelves holding the bath towels were so far away from the tub that we couldn't reach them from the tub, so we had to either plan ahead and hang a towel next to the tub or walk across the floor dripping wet to get one. There was no hook on the back of the bathroom door for hanging robes or pajamas like I've come to expect in most Holiday Inns. (I had to use the hook next to the tub for the towel.) I didn't much care for the small, thin bath towels.
This hotel has free breakfast (eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits, pastries, fruit, yogurt, cereal, juice, coffee) and free Happy Hour food. The lobby is very pretty. Service was good. We would probably stay here again.
