“Nice, comfortable hotel”
Reviewed 12 August 2012

Probably one of the nicer Holiday Inns you will stay in. Front desk staff actually seems glad you are there. Rooms are clean and most include a mini fridge and microwave. Bed and bedding is above average although I hate those mini pillows everyone seems to be using. If you smoke you will want to request a 1st floor room with patio door so you can easily step outside as this is a non-smoking property.

In town for an event and stayed 2 nights. Very nice lobby with contemporary decor; definitely an upgrade from a typical Holiday Inn. This is one of the few properties I've been in with a central pool area complete with activities for kids such as putt putt. It was a very family friendly environment. The breakfast was excellent and the service very good. There is also a surprisingly popular bar/lounge called "Images" which had a good crowd on Saturday night and a full compliment of local talent. The rooms did have an older feel but were fresh, clean, and comfortable beds. Looks like a very good place to hold events. The one I was attending went very well and catering was very good. Will definitely stay again if in town.

The rooms were spacious and A/C worked well (important at 101F with high humidity), and they had nice tv's, big bathrooms, tubs, everything you need, including blackout drapes (which didn't quite close completely). The hotel itself is in good shape, nice lobby and open spaces. The pool is indoors, and I would have preferred it being outdoors for sunning. Check in was terrible--I arrived at 2:30pm and my room wasn't ready, so I came back at 3:30 and it still wasn't ready. I finally demanded a room at 4:15 since my event was at 6pm, and there were 3 other people waiting for their rooms at the same time. Bar didn't open until 4pm, so we couldn't even hang out there waiting. Our event was in a conference room, and the service stunk. Food tasted pretty good for a hotel, about average, but they removed the buffet as soon as everyone passed through. We didn't even have an opportunity to go back for salad! I would NOT recommend this venue for an event.

Dear SensorCEO,
Thank you for taking the time to post a review of your stay here at the Midtown Holdiay Inn in Grand Island, Ne. We are pleased that you found our facility and rooms very nice. We are sorry that you experienced the delay in getting into your room. With a full house of a Nat'l cattle show here in Grand Island on Friday night......there was a tremendous delay in getting rooms cleaned as they did not check out until 1PM on Sat. We apologize for this incident and want you to be assured that this was an isolated case and that we usually can always accomodate early check ins. I apologize that this explanation was not explained to you at that time. We also are sorry that the buffet for your group was not left up for a longer period of time. We always check with our contact who books the function for a requested time by them to remove the food. We apologize that you did not get a chance to return for salad. We appreciate all reviews in order to help improve our service to the traveling public. Sincerely, RHonda Saalfeld, GM

This property appears to have orignially been a Holidome and has recently been modernized. The rooms retain front windows, but most areas have been enclosed to eliminate "motel" like exterior access. A colleague and I stayed three nights on business. Our rooms were nicely appointed and in good condition. The public areas were in similar shape. The exterior view of the hotel from the street is incredibly bland and unappealing, but the property is actually a good choice.

This hotel is great if you are traveling with kids. The pool area is great, large and very unique. It also has ping pong tables, mini golf (simple, but fun for the very young) and a pool table in the pool area. The restaurant was nice. The hotel has undergone a nice renovation recently. The interior rooms facing towards the indoor pool area would be nice if you don't want that direct outside access. The rooms have been nicely decorated. The outside rooms have a secure covered walkway for their access. The room we stayed in was a little noisy and bright from the lights shining in from a street or parking lot light. Overall, I would recommend this hotel, and very conveniently located to Fonner Park.

Room Tip: Stay on the inside towards pool unless you want quick access to outdoors.

We just wanted a place for the night on our journey and found this Holiday Inn to be really better than expected. Looks new, everything is very clean, quiet. It has a great pool and jacuzzi area, decent fitness centre and nice restaurant. Certainly better than your average HI of this type.
