We stay at this hotel yearly on our way to Colorado. It is right off the expressway and close to restaurants and necessities. The hotel is modern and decorated very well however I hope they update the mattresses soon as they are old school and not that comfortable.

We had a GREAT experience at another Holiday Inn Express in Missouri, so we were excited to stay here. Not quite as exceptional, but definitely money well spent.

This is a fairly new hotel, and everything was nicely appointed and clean. The room was comfortable and reasonably quiet. The complimentary breakfast offered a good selection of hot and cold foods. This hotel was up to par with the better HI Express hotels I’ve stayed at, and I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again.

Pretty much what you'd expect from Holiday Inn in middle America. Very nice staff, a good size room - everything spic & span. Real nice breakfast but would have been nice to have one of those waffle machines (I love those - especially if they have some pecans handy). The pool was nice - and especially the hot tub.

My plans were to stay in Omaha this evening but a storm hampered my travel further the day prior. The staff (Morgan) helped me with my reservation. The room was clean, spacious, and quiet despite being near the freeway. My only feedback was that the hot breakfast in the morning was not as good as other Holiday Inn Express hotels.... More
