Room was clean, check in was friendly and efficient, and the breakfast was outstanding! The mini omelets and breakfast links were especially good. Diane at the managers receptions was friendly and welcoming.

This is a very good HIE, and remains competitive in terms of quality with some of the newer hotels close to the Younes Center. This HIE is south of the interstate, and thus a bit removed from the rest of Kearney. There is a small gas station within walking distance however. As far as service and lobby, this was good...

May be a fine motel...if you can get past the lippy desk clerk...more interested in providing a combo charge for a meal at a neighboring restaurant...and altered the quoted price considerably...from that quoted an hour earlier. For a town full of motels, who needs this hassle at the end of the day!

On our way home to Michigan from Colorado over Christmas vacation. We decided to stop at this Holiday Inn Express. Very nice person at the front desk. Our room was very up to date and clean. The bed was comfortable and breakfast the next morning was just what we needed to complete our journey home.

I have no idea where this property got their 4.7 star rating. Our visit started with a plugged toilet. Not of our doing. We asked for a maintenance person to fix the problem. We were informed that there was not a maintenance person available but they could get one from one of their other properties. I asked for a plunger,...

This hotel was really nice! We had a fourth floor suite (top floor) and the room was very modern and spacious. The beds were a bit uncomfortable, though, and the shower when I went to take it was cold. Those were our only complaints, though. The breakfast was great and delicious, and the elevators were efficient to get us to...

Stopped for just the night in Kearney. The Holiday Inn Express was fabulous! I loved the modern decor and very comfortable furniture in the suite. The room was incredibly quiet.

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.
