The Holiday Inn Express in Ogallala was a wonderful experience. We had to stay for a work function and the two women that checked us in were warm and welcoming. The rooms were nice and the showers were very warm. The beds were comfortable and the pillows were even marked with soft and firm on the cases. There are mini... More

There is plenty good to say about this hotel. Right off the highway (more on that in a second) and a great stop along LONG I-80 trips, and it's close enough to fast food and fuel options. But be sure to get a room facing the back! If your room faces the interstate, you will here the trucks using engine/Jake... More

There are only 2-3Star hotels in town but the other one is $50 less per night! The holiday Inn franchise is an unbelievably expensive place to stay at I've found. I hadn't stayed at one for years, but when a friend booked this one we checked in late and found it was $114 before taxes---and every city assumes that they... More

We came late at night and left early morning, just to get some sleep on our way from Denver to Chicago, but anyway this is very nice place, Clean rooms, quiet place, friendly staff. Comfortable beds. Tasty breakfast with nice selection.

This western style hotel was clean and had comfy beds with great pillows, nice bathroom and a great breakfast buffet. Staff friendly and attentive. I had wished for ground floor room but second floor with room facing away from highway turned out very well.

It's not easy to find a great hotel in a small town, but the Holiday Inn Express isn't too bad. It was clean and comfortable, but a bit dated. It is right off of the interstate and so easy to find. I think they had "hunting cabins" for those who want to stay with their dogs.

Thank you for visiting Ogallala and your stay with us. As you mention we try hard to offer our guests a clean, comfortable hotel throughout. As for the cabins, they are normally open from April through mid October, our fill season, and offer a nice change in a more secluded area near the pond next to them. We are a... More

Thank you for your input. We will investigate to see which sofa sleeper your are referencing and have it replaced. Most of our sofa sleepers are new within the last 2 years so it is probably one last one that is scheduled to be replaced. All of our mattresses have also been replaced within the last 2 years.
