Stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for Business. The room was ok. Had problems with the TV and the outlet by the sink. Bed was comfortable. Breakfast was great. So much to choose from. Especially the coffee.

A short distance from Boot Hill on a side street stands a Holiday Inn Express. The ambience is authentic old west with pine cone carpeting and log decor. It was clean, and we loved the wonderful white bed and bath linen that is so important to us. Our room had a cute log porch and we would have enjoyed it...

We cross the country routinely...and look forward to (...or more like plan to) stay in this HIE in Ogallala! Warm-friendly staff, clean-quiet rooms, convenient to the interstate and local restaurants... We especially get a kick out of their breakfast staff. What a hoot!

The Holiday Inn Express in Ogallala was a wonderful experience. We had to stay for a work function and the two women that checked us in were warm and welcoming. The rooms were nice and the showers were very warm. The beds were comfortable and the pillows were even marked with soft and firm on the cases. There are mini...

There is plenty good to say about this hotel. Right off the highway (more on that in a second) and a great stop along LONG I-80 trips, and it's close enough to fast food and fuel options. But be sure to get a room facing the back! If your room faces the interstate, you will here the trucks using engine/Jake...

Thanks for your review, Unfortunately at any hotel there can be some outside noise that filters through the HVAC unit. We do offer ear plugs if desired and any room will be as quiet as you need to be. Tesla has installed 6 Super Charger recharge stations in the back of our lot and they are now totally functional.

There are only 2-3Star hotels in town but the other one is $50 less per night! The holiday Inn franchise is an unbelievably expensive place to stay at I've found. I hadn't stayed at one for years, but when a friend booked this one we checked in late and found it was $114 before taxes---and every city assumes that they...

Thank you for your personal observations. Unfortunately, at other cheaper properties that you mention you haven't stayed at they tend to offer less personal service and hospitality than we are known for. You certainly have the right to try out another motel for a little less, however, we often have guests come back to us stating that it was a...

This western style hotel was clean and had comfy beds with great pillows, nice bathroom and a great breakfast buffet. Staff friendly and attentive. I had wished for ground floor room but second floor with room facing away from highway turned out very well.

It's not easy to find a great hotel in a small town, but the Holiday Inn Express isn't too bad. It was clean and comfortable, but a bit dated. It is right off of the interstate and so easy to find. I think they had "hunting cabins" for those who want to stay with their dogs.

Thank you for visiting Ogallala and your stay with us. As you mention we try hard to offer our guests a clean, comfortable hotel throughout. As for the cabins, they are normally open from April through mid October, our fill season, and offer a nice change in a more secluded area near the pond next to them. We are a...
