Kearney, Nebraska

Newer facility. Parking is rather cramped and if not early, you can end up down the hill, so make sure you drop your bags off before parking! Rooms and lobby were clean and decorated with Native American/Anasazi motif. Was quite nice. Rooms were clean. Breakfast area was well attended, clean and friendly. The only bad experience? We ended up with...

Traveller68845! That is some great advice! I apologize about the noise, I would like to remove all the Connecting doors as we only get requests for connecting doors once a month or so, and we get complaints from noise from those rooms about three times as often as that. I have thrown that on our list of things we can...

This is the first time we have stayed at a Holiday Inn and we were very impressed with it. Super bedding and pillows, exceptionally clean, great full free buffet with plenty of room so there was no standing in line for a table. Nice pool and hot tub. Friendly staff. Would definitely stay here again. Extremely quiet. Loved the Southwest...

I decided to stay 2 nights in Cortez to easily tour Mesa Verde national park, and this Holiday inn is located only minutes away from both the park and "downtown" Cortez. The hotel is clean with a friendly and welcoming staff. However, the experience wasn't as great as it could have been. First, the parking lot of the hotel is...

Doughbuy! Thanks for the Great review and the recommendation! Sorry about the restaurant trash smell, that sucks. I am glad we got that outlet fixed for you and again, apologize we did not have that fixed in advance of your stay. The carpet is actually new, lol, that is a crazy design and color though right?

We stayed one night in this hotel after a day in Mesa Verde National Park. The staff was very friendly. The hotel was very clean. I requested a late check out and they were very accommodating. The laundry facilities were in the building next door to the hotel.

We enjoyed 2 nights at the Holiday Inn Express in Cortez. Very nice and clean room. The staff was very friendly. We will definitely stay there again. Oh and the chocolate chip cookies in the evening are delicious. The Destination bar and grill across the parking lot is a great place to eat.

As the title suggests this is just another Holiday Inn. However, we had a great experience overall starting from check-in which was quick and easy to the clean and comfortable room. The breakfast was more than adequate and based on the numbers of people everything was stocked up or if something runs out it is soon replenished. Check-out was just...

We stayed in one of the family suites and our kids absolutely loved the little bunk room. It had four bunks with their own TV. They said it was the best hotel ever! I wish that more hotels would have rooms like this for families. The rooms were clean and nice and the breakfast was decent for a hotel.

Our check-in was smooth, our room was quiet and clean, and views from our window were gorgeous. The breakfast room is roomy and comfortable.

What a great value. The rooms are nice and the in door pool is amazing. Ariella was the front desk employee. She was so helpful. She told us where to eat and the cool places in town to visit. Plus she was just a pleasant person. If you're looking for a great value, stay at the Holiday Inn.
