Very nice people all around. Clean rooms, but, somewhat small. No pool was the biggest disapointment. Had three grandkids on trip. Gals serving breakfast were very nice and did a great job. Would stay there again if in the area.

Seems to be a newer property. Staff was friendly. Room was quite even though it's right by the interstate. Our room was a jacuzzi suite with living and bedroom area. It is also located right ext to a good Mexican restaurant.

We have stayed at this motel twice while traveling, and have been satisfied both times. The rooms are clean and equip with mini-frig and microwave. The motel is quiet. The staff is friendly and helpful. A nice breakfast is available. Plenty of parking at the motel and conveniently located right off I-80.

My family and I stayed here for the night. Staff was great all the way around. Room was clean - like the white bedding. The bed was lumpy but not the worst I've ever. Breakfast was ample and good. Overall I would stay again.

Thank you for your review. Our staff works hard to deliver the consistency that you expect from our hotel. Sorry to hear about the mattress, however, we are in the process of finishing up our mattress replacement program that will complete the property. They are all to franchise compliance based on brand (Serta) and most popular firmness. We look forward...

Well, this stay was just OK. When checking in, the front desk clerk was very nice. When we got to our room, it had a weird smell, but the clerk got us a new room. Although, our second room's door didnt have a lock that worked at all. Breakfast was fine, but a rather small area for all the guests....

Thank you for your input. We are now in a period of time that with the extensive moisture, heat and humidity doors occasionally need some adjustment associated with swelling. Our Chief Engineer has made those adjustments to the room and our housekeeping staff has investigated your odor concern. We do not advertise an exercise room or pool as we do...

Very convenient location, just off the highway and next door to a very good Mexican restaurant. We were warmly welcomed, given spacious room with a view of the river, overlooking the back parking lot. Great complimentary breakfast with warm cinnamon rolls! We will make it a point to stay here on our return trip!

Lovely lodge furnishings but indifferent customer service. Room smaller than average, but clean and serviceable. Would prefer vanity area to be a separate area with door. Free WIFI was easy to access. Did not experience breakfast as it didn't open until 6:30AM.

Thank you for your response. Our rooms are consistent with Holiday Inn Express standard size dimensions with room/suite type options to choose from. We strive to provide great service consistently, however, an occasional unintended concern can arise and our policy is to address it in a timely manner. Consistent with most hotel brands our breakfast room technically opens at 6:30...

If you're traveling west on Interstate 80 and find you need to stop for the night in Ogallala, stop here. I'm not sure it was built as an HIE, but it is a very comfortable hotel, super clean, well-maintained and has two of the friendliest, most diligent breakfast ladies we've ever encountered!
