Rawlins gets a bad rap. True, there isn't much to do there but the people are incredibly nice and the staff of this hotel were no exception. I stayed here for 5 weeks (which if you've ever stayed in[More] a hotel that long you know its MUCH harder than it seems) but the staff always did an excellent job of making me feel cared for and appreciated. Whether I locked myself out of my room for the 8th time or ran out of quarters doing laundry....again.....they were always happy to help out and I know that helped me get through those weeks because I was pretty miserable being away from home.
As for the rooms, mine was wonderful. Clean, spacious, kitchenette, seating area, and a comfortable bed with lots of pillows. Plus, they have both wired and wireless connections and a TV that lets you hook almost any device to it. I brought my DVD player and rented Redbox movies which helped pass the time in the evenings.
The bathrooms are HUGE. I wish I had that much counter space at home! As much as I was eager to get home, I really miss all that room in the bathroom. It's big enough to dance in!
The laundry machines are VERY efficient for the price. The washing machine and dryer are $1.25 and washes your clothes in 25 minutes/dries them in 45 minutes. Better than any laundromat.
Finally, I ordered something that arrived after I checked out and the staff called me and had the package forwarded to me so they get extra points for doing that.....it really meant a lot to me. Great hotel![Less]
Podunk town has a gem
Clean, friendly and close to all that this little town has to offer the Holiday Inn Express is all that you expect.
Easy in and out and close to the freeway, it's clearly worth the money.
Rooms are[More] clean and comfortable.
If there was any downside to the room it's that there could be more light.[Less]
Room comfort and cleanliness
Room was very clean and updated. Bed was comfortable as well as pillows. Bathroom was clean and well stocked with supplies and towels.[Less]
