Holiday Inn Express Kearney

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 March 2014

Was very warmly welcomed by Katie at the front desk and all went very well from there. Rooms seemed very clean and new feeling. I always like the choice of pillows as I lean towards a harder pillow.
Breakfast was very good with a number of choices. Fruit was lacking by the time I got down there at 8:30 but other than that everything was good, hot and tasty.
I have stayed at a number of Kearney hotels and I think I found the one I will be staying at.
It is on the south side of I80 and some don't see it as many hotels are on the north of I 80

I stayed for 3 nights and have nothing but great things to say about this location. The staff was very pleasant, helpful and professional. The room was very clean and comfortable with good internet and TV. The bath water was hot with great water pressure (a must). OMG! They have chocolate milk in their fridge. I will be back.

This is an especially nice hotel! Everything seemed brand new and immaculately clean. The 42" TV and DVD player was great. The king size bed was so comfortable and it had actual king size pillows on it, 2 firm and 2 soft, so you had a choice of what pillow to sleep on. Internet worked great. The room had a fridge and microwave. The staff is so nice! They should be commended! They made us feel so welcome.The pool was a nice warm temperature and the large hot tub was hot and had strong jets. The free breakfast had lots of hot items and was very good. Love their cinnamon rolls! Just can't give enough praise for this hotel and their staff. We can't wait to stay here again the next time that we're in Kearney.

Great place to stay as you travel cross-country on I-80. Just south of the interstate in easy-to-get-to location. We like to stop here for the clean, comfortable room and the outstanding breakfast. Whether you're stopping in Kearney for the sandhill crane migration in March, events at the University of Nebraska - Kearney, or just a weary traveler, you will enjoy the efficient, friendly staff and wonderful accommodations. Enjoy your stay!!

Excelent stay!
One night while transitting Kearney.
Great reception guy, couldn't do enough for us.
Room was large, clean as a whistle and very well furnished. Bed was made for sleeping.
Excellent gym downstairs, high-grade equipment and again, clean as a whistle.

This has to be the best hotel stay we have had in the US after almost three months of continuous and extensive travel!

Third time staying at this location and it only gets better and better! After driving all day the front desk staff was awesome and gave us the perfect sized suite for myself and four kids. Breakfast was good too!

Wow! We are overjoyed that you have chosen us yet again. There is nothing more gratifying than hearing from a guest who is as satisfied today as they were the first time they stepped through our doors. Our staff is preparing for your next visit in order to make the fourth time even better than the third. Thank you!

Spent two nights at this hotel. The staff was very nice and the hotel is new and very clean. Decent breakfast was included. One of the better beds I've slept in (probably because it is new). One thing I noticed is that if you're tall the shower should be fine. Someone over 6' should have no problem with the shower head height and it was a nice shower head. Very rare in this price point hotel. If I find myself in Kearney again Holiday Inn Express will be my choice.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that doesn't face the parking lot. Can be louder in the morning.
