This hotel is tucked behing some restaurants, and can be easily missed if you don't know it is there. Look for the In N Out Burger, and you're close. The hotel is old and drafty on cold winter nights. The elevator is small and slow. The breakfast was up to usual Holiday Inn Express standards (plentiful and lots of good...

Hotel staff was great!! Breakfast included eggs/bacon/cereals/pancakes/fruit/sweet rolls, etc. very good - as was the coffee. The breakfast room could be bigger. The hotel seems a little dated but it was clean and quiet. There is an In & Out Burger next door and also a convenience store close by. I will stay here again next year when I visit...

I stayed at this hotel in April 2015 while we were visiting a friend in the area. Let me first start by saying that there is an In and Out restaurant literally in the parking lot! Now, this isn't much for locals, but since I don't have one in Colorado it's always a treat! Now, for the hotel, it's perfectly...

Older hotel but still is in my opinion a recommended place to stay. It has all the conveniences a business traveler would expect in the room plus they serve a great breakfast. (Marriott would charge $12). If the price is right llok no further.

Nice and clean room. The breakfast is good. The outdoor pool has good size. Service can be better. I reported that the refrigerator is not cold enough but nothing is done the next day even though I reminded the front desk.

I spend a lot of time in HIE properties. I know what separates a property that I want to stay at again, and one that I don't. Sorry, but this hotel earned its way onto my "not again" list. I my opinion, it was not clean to my expectation. It was noisy...even late into the night. The breakfast was in...

I stayed here for local business needs. The staff was nice and the room was clean and comfortable but that's where it ends. The floor tiles on the common areas were filthy for the 2 days I was there.
