Stayed one night on the way to Colorado. The hotel is located right off Interstate 80 along a frontage road. The hotel itself is clean with plenty of parking in the back of the building. If you get a king room on the first floor you will also have a door to the parking lot behind the building. The amenities...

Western motif, very friendly staff in breakfast area. Just passing thru. Similar to other holiday inn expresses. Love the different pillows-soft and firm. Nice bedding and comfortable beds. Just off I80 and convenient to travel. Can rely on Holiday Inn Express.

This is an older Holiday Inn Express with a western motif (which was nice for a change). It has been refurbished and is in good shape. The room was pretty roomy and the bathroom was good. Breakfast was the standard Holiday Inn Express service. The employees were friendly and helpful. Our bed was a little soft in the middle but...

Thank you for your review. Our hotel is still relatively new for Ogallala, and we have plans in the near future to totally refurbish the hotel by June of next year that will reflect a great new start along with our already outstanding reputation for our 2nd to none western hospitality.

Great night. Clean and spacious rooms. Quiet. Great for families and pets. The pet rooms were nice and clean! Fun western themed lobby! We wish we'd have stayed more than one night! Always full, so book early!

Nice hotel, typical Holiday Inn rooms and facilities - clean and updated. Staff was very friendly, breakfast was good. The one issue I had was parking. We arrived around 9pm and found the parking lot filled with pick-ups towing trailers each occupying 6-8 spots and blocking lanes. This meant several cars had to park far off in the sand/gravel parking....

Thank you for your revue and input.

Very clean room and great staff. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and stay again! The interstate noise was a bit annoying but not horrible. Decor was a bit old but I felt it fitted with the region, but the room had modern fixtures and amenities.

Thank you for your input and revue. Our western themed property represents the "Old West" heritage that Ogallala historically created.
