If you are looking for a peaceful, restful hotel stay along I-70 in west central Colorado, you should seriously consider this hotel in Parachute, CO. Located between the much busier stops of Grand Junction and Glenwood Springs, the HI Express in Parachute is a gem of an alternative. I had driven 12+ hours from central Arizona and I was looking for just such a hotel. Without a reservation, I was placed in a nicely furnished room, with excellent TV and internet, away from the normal hotel noise (stairs, elevator, ice machine, vending etc.). Sensing that I really did not want to get back in my car, the front desk clerk recommended a local, family restaurant/bar right across the street. I had a wonderful meal followed by a blissful night's sleep. In the morning, the hotel provided a full buffet-style breakfast with more than one main selection. Throughout my two day stay, the management and staff were highly competent, courteous and willing to assist in any way possible. In each and every aspect, this hotel exceeded my expectations.
