Since my last review about this hotel there has been a wonderful change. Everything was great. The breakfast bar was outstanding and the whole staff was so nice and helpful. I will definitely stay at this hotel again.

We have stayed here twice now. It has good easy access. There is a convience store next door and fast food next to that. The breakfast is good, and the staff is friendly. My only complaints is the wifi sucks and only about half the tv channels come in clear.

Room was clean. Bed was comfortable though pillows were very hard. Breakfast adequate but not as much variety as in most HIE. There was no pancake maker, for instance. But that was ok. What I really hated was the shower. It had been refit with plastic that squeaked very loudly every time I moved. I pitied the people in the...

Stayed here during the balloon fiesta and the staff went out of their way to make the stay very enjoyable. There is a great vibe inside the hotel during this time and it shows with the staff as well. Nice pool area, rooms are average but clean. The walk to the balloon park is about 3/4 of a mile and...

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Balloon Fiesta Park 10-10 - 10-13 for the Fiesta. Great place to stay for this event. You can walk to the Park and avoid the traffic about a 25 minute walk with sidewalks and well lit. Great breakfast and Staff was friendly and helpful.

Normally the Holiday Inn Express properties are a great value and a comfortable stay. This one is way below the average Express property. Getting into the property is a little awkward as it sits behind a Circle K. Parking isn't all that great and it is definitely limited. The rooms are average, but the bathrooms are ridiculously small. The door...

I plan my travel carefully, so it was unusual that I was looking for a hotel room late at night. Came across this Holiday Inn Express at 1am and hesitated because it was an awkward drive behind a gas station and through another entrance. Happy with the choice, the last minute rare, the cleanliness of the room and the breakfast....

This hotel is convenient to the highway and Balloon Fiesta park. Our kids enjoyed the pool and hot tub, the free breakfast and the living space in the room.
