We called on Saturday night, looking for three rooms at the last minute, and were promptly accommodated. The manager on duty was pleasant and helpful, and made us feel welcome and at home. This hotel saved our trip, as the hotel we originally booked was in very bad shape. We went to 3 Margaritas for dinner, and it was the...

Thank you for choosing Holiday Inn Express, Ogallala. It's our goal to meet and exceed your expectations from the moment you reserve your room until you depart our hotel.

Thank you for your comments. Our western themed property offers the historical feel of our reputation for being the Cowboy Capital of Nebraska and a taste of the "Old West", but with up to date furnishings and a great SmartStart Breakfast in the morning. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Very western themed complete with an antler chandelier... I am not a 'kill animals for sport' kind of person so it made me kind of uncomfortable. Nice clean room (although my dog did find an oatmeal cookie under the bed). Pet friendly, but there is only a tiny little grassy area where the pets can go potty :/ I don't...

We value your input. Hopefully you expressed your concern associated with your dog prior to check-out in order for us to determine who was assigned this room for housekeeping service.

Friendly staff. Price was a little higher than i thought it should be for the location and the beds were not very comfortable. Clean room and nice hot breakfast. Wifi worked good. Did not see a work out room.

Staff was very friendly, as I'd expect in a small town in western Nebraska. Check in was quick with reservations (the guy in front of me didn't have them and it was still quick). Room on first floor was quiet, albeit with a bit of interstate noise, but nothing bad. Room was clean, bed comfortable, shower hot, env controls responsive....

I chose this motel because I assumed it would be like other Holiday Inn Expresses. It is not due to it's western theme, fake log cabin furniture. The room was comfortable enough but the color scheme of pea-green walls and gold was unpleasant. The TV selections were limited. Through a computer mistake (mine) I had booked two rooms for my...

I'm sorry that you perceived our western décor as something other than expected. The log furniture is indeed genuine as the person who designed and made it used real logs from South Dakota where he specialized in building it for western themed properties such as ours. Some of our guest rooms have accent walls that try to get away from...

Stayed here last week for the night while driving through. The hotel was nice and clean. Rooms were comfortable and large. Staff was friendly. My only issue was the trains that go by frequently - all night. It probably would have been ok if they didn't blow their whistle every time they go through. It didn't seem to bother anyone...

I just found some notes in my suitcase from a stay here in March. My notes say that the room was large, clean, quiet, and that I had a good night's sleep. Can't ask for much more than that. I also noted that the heat/ac unit is a wall blower unit but that at least it is a good distance...

Had a king size suite. It was clean as expected. My only complaint about the room was the lack of a writing desk and chair, or a suitable place to use my laptop. Breakfast area was well maintained, but the hot items such as the eggs, pre-cooked bacon and sausage were really bad.

This hotel had a friendly and helpful front desk & breakfast room staff. The rooms were very clean & comfortable. Free breakfast was good. We stopped on our way to Southern Utah and again on our trip home to PA. There is a Walmart, gas/convenience stores & several restaurants in the area. We would stay here again.
