Picked HIE because restaurant (Skeeter Barnes) located across parking lot and didn't have to drive to dinner. Nice hotel. Dinner was great too. Be careful if looking for GPS instructions to HIE that you don't pick Holiday Inn Kearney. There are two different places. HIE is nice, new hotel, very clean, great breakfast, quiet rooms. Refrigerator in room.

I think they told me that it's been there for few years, but you would never know it. The whole place looked to be in sparkling new condition. I appreciate that kind of maintenance. Location is great -- just off I-80 on the quiet south side -- but just far enough off that you could not hear the traffic. Breakfast...

A friend came from Illinois to help me move my mom from Colorado to Illinois. We had no idea how far we would get the 1st day or how the weather would cooperate. We finally made it to Kearney and I told my friend, I've stayed at this hotel right off I-80 for years. They have a pool, 2 waterslides...

We stayed here on a friday evening and the place was full...like only 2 rooms left in the entire hotel. There were athletic teams and tourists visiting the area for the crane migration. We checked in late...about 830pm, and our two rooms were ready for us. We did have 4th floor..not ideal as I'm not very patient with slow and...

We stayed 3 nights during spring break while enjoying the Sandhill Crane migration.Our room was clean, and comfortable. The breakfast offerings were fine and the front desk staff is courteous, and friendly. The hotel is located a few hundred feet south of I-80 in a quiet area compared to north of the interstate where it's busier with other hotels and...

First time at this motel and enjoyed the stay. For starters, they have free beer, wine and snacks Monday through Thursday from 5:30 to 7:00. Free breakfast, of course, but rather limited selection. No fruit during our stay. Unique pancake maker that I haven't seen. Press a button and it bakes and dispenses the pancake onto your plate. Just press...

I'd give this place a solid 4.5/5. Clean & comfortable and what I'd expect from a HIE. That being said, I'd recommend booking the Hampton Inn in Kearney (less than 5 minutes away) before this if possible. For the same price, it feels a little bit more upscale and on its game. My room smelled vaguely of dirty wet towels...

While traveling through stayed here for one night, staff was very helpful and pleasant on check in. We had a nice quiet stay, the breakfast area had a feature have not seen in any other Holiday Inn Express with booths style seating and power outlet above seat.

I Have always enjoyed this hotel, great front desk staff, and modern, comfortable rooms.

This hotel is very conveniently located on the east side of Kearney, less than 1/4 mile south of Interstate 80. My room was the usual high standard for HIE cleanliness and extremely quiet since it faced the backside of the hotel which overlooked an empty field for 100 yards with some commercial buildings in the distance. There wasn't even a...
