“Terrific place to stay!”
Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

This motel is awesome. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated. It is off the interstate a ways so is quiet. The front desk people are helpful and friendly and the breakfast has everything you could possibly want. A 5 star place to stay for sure!

The H I E itself was nice. The room met all our criteria, clean, good beds, good shower. We even had a nice view from our window. Here's the problem....at 5:00 am someone in the room above was taking a shower. The sound of the pipes was like there was someone blowing a horn in our room! It sure woke me up! When they were done, I went back to sleep for a few moments then doors started slamming. Guess I don't get why guests do that. We always close the door quietly when there may be people sleeping. At that point, I gave up and started getting ready to leave. They did have a nice breakfast. We headed out for the last of our trip to Colorado, tired. We travel to Colorado once or twice a year, doubt we'd stay here again.

I would like to start by apologizing for the noise issue that you experienced while staying with us. We strive to make each stay relaxing and unnecessary noise is unacceptable. We will look into the plumbing and see if there is a way to make the pipe noise quieter for all guests. We do hope that you will reconsider staying with us in the future and allow us to better serve you and your needs. Thank you.

My wife and I stopped at this hotel with three grandchildren. The staff was very accommodating in terms of our needs and the room was spacious and clean. The children really enjoyed the pool and the fitness room. The breakfast was great, as it usually is at HIE.

We arrived later in the evening after many hours on the road, and the staff was very helpful and friendly. The room was much nicer than we expected; large and comfortable. We enjoyed the pool & hot tub. Excellent breakfast. Great value for the quality of the room and extras.

The Holiday Inn Express brand is very predictable in most cases for newly constructed hotels. This is a newer one off of 80, a middle point between the Rockies and Midwest. Nice outdoor patio if you are dining with a group which we took advantage of. It overlooks a nice western sunset. The room are typical Holiday Inn Express with soft/hard pillow options and standard finishes. The desk area was convenient and free wifi--a must. Service was good and so was the free brunch in a comfortable common space.

Only trade is the location. There are few downtown options. Kearney has a reasonably attractive Mainstreet where the more local restaurant options are located. This Holiday Inn is kind of trapped South of 80 and biking to the downtown was a challenge given poor road design which is partly a function of location.

Like most limited service brands, the elevator is in the only visible choice and is often occupied or inconvenient. One of these days, Hamptons and HI's, will provide stairs that are the primary access point between floors (usually no more than 3 floors). The stairwells are dark and have little air circulation. I hope these brands will give stairs a more equitable option for lodgers.

Thank you for staying with us at the Holiday Inn Express, Kearney. We are glad that the weather cooperated allowing you the chance to enjoy our patio out back! As for our location, I completely agree. Our location is directly off the interstate, making it very convenient for travelers looking for a quick stop, but not very convenient for those looking to explore the city of Kearney. We do however, provide maps of the city's layout and the bike trails, to help make it as easy for our guests as possible.

Typically upon check-in we automatically direct our guests to the elevators. We do need to also offer the option of stairs so that all of our guests do know they can use either the elevators or the stairs. We will look into providing more lighting in the stairwell for travelers, as well as better air flow. It isn't something we have typically thought about, and we appreciate that being brought to our attention. We strive to make every guest comfortable.

We hope that we get the chance to provide for you again in the future! Thank you!

friendly, informative, and efficient front-desk staff, great wi-fi, clean and quiet. the rooms are stylish and comfortable. i really enjoyed the manager's reception as well as breakfast, in spite of the place being overrun by little leaguers. great place.

Room Tip: ask to stay on the back side of the hotel ... the sunset over the water is beautiful.
