“A good choice in a remote location.”
Reviewed 7 June 2012

I wanted to stay in Kileen but most hotels were booked or way over priced. This hotel is about 25 minutes from Ft. Hood without traffic.
The property is in good shape except for the pigeons lIving over the entrance. They are trying to discourage them but from the mess it looks like they are loosing. The lobby is very nice and the breakfast area is clean and inviting.
Rooms are large and well maintained. Beds are comfortable with little room noise.
Only two complaints. Breakfast was mediocre and they are still using analogue TV's.
For a small town property they are doing a good job and I would stay here again.

Decent hotel. Large, well-appointed lobby. Able to let kids sleep while we read on same-floor lobby with couches. Nice pool and deck. As always with free breakfast, you get what you pay for: blech.

If you choose a suite, go with the two room queen bed suite on the 2nd/3rd floors - the king suite is half the size but the price is the same. Queen suite can comfortably sleep 6. King Suite is a crowded 4.

Property is clean, & well maintained, but seemingly understaffed so there may be gaps in service from time to time - limited staff there seem to be expected to cover a broad swath of duties which could be why there are new faces there every time we visit.

Free breakfast is relatively good and breakfast room is inviting: yogurt, biscuits and gravy, pancake machine, hot cinnamon rolls, etc. But stay away from the soylent yellow omelettes.

Finally, the pool is quite nice, albeit small, but the concrete around it is so slippery that it doesn't take much more that a very slight misstep and BOOM, down you go.

On weekends this place is always brimming with activity and people, groups and stories from all over the state. It makes for great people watching.

Overall, a consistently good stay.

Stayed here for a business trip to the Belton area. We have stayed at the Holiday Inn in Temple and this property is equally nice but with a more affordable room that included breakfast. The room was well appointed and comfortable and the common areas of the hotel and nicely decorated. The breakfast had a good variety of items and something for everyone. I would highly recommend this property when visiting the area for a good value and breakfast to start your day!

As Holiday Inn Expresses go, this one is just so-so. You mostly get what you expect - relatively large rooms, expansive free breakfast, updated decor, price in the $90-100 range - but there were several little things that seemed a bit off. We stayed on a Wednesday night, and a new front-desk employee was being trained. This led to a few minor problems (our keys didn't work at first), though I understand that new people have to be trained some time. But the ice machine on our floor didn't work, and the drink machine was marked out of order. The tires on the luggage cart that we used were flat, making it very hard to use (it was the only one available when we arrived at 11 PM). The free breakfast had no fresh fruit, which is a first for us after staying at many HiEx locations in the past. The blackout curtains were oddly designed to cover the air-conditioner when closed, meaning you have to choose between cool air flow and darkness, can't have both. As a fan of this chain, this location was disappointing.

It is more spacious than a typical HIE with a hill country lodge feel. It is a great place to stay for a weekend or stop on the interstate. My only problem with this hotel is that the matresses seem harder than the normal HIE.

I have stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Salado, Texas on several occasions. The hotel is inviting and has plenty of parking. The staff were wonderful and very helpful with places to eat and shop. The rooms are always very clean and have everything you would want or need. The breakfast is free and has everything you could ever want. I love this hotel also because I can bring my pet with no problems. I highly suggest you stay at this hotel when in Central Texas. I know I will be back soon!

Room Tip: I have stayed in several of the rooms and they are all wonderful
