Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mt1ascp Great choice for travelers with pets
This HI Express is extra nice for pet owners. They allow dogs for a small fee and offer a nice area for walking and lots of lush, green grass. The property is in the process of renovation. The great room and guest rooms have been transformed into lovely, and comfortable spaces. We were so impressed with the service and new updates. Food choices for breakfast are plentiful and delicious. They also offer homemade cookies upon check in as a nice treat for tired travelers. This is a first class property.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ddfarms Wonderful stay
The staff was very friendly and courteous. The common area was clean and well lighted. Our room was very nice and very comfortable.
I would suggest that the hotel move the ash tray for smokers away from the main outside entrance. As a non smoker I didn't like walking through the second hand smoke.
Our stay was very pleasant and I would definitely recommend this facitility

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bwoodward103 Very Comfortable and Friendly Service
The rooms are outstanding, very comfortable beds and pillow. A little warm in the rooms. Outstanding guest services. The breakfast is the same five days a week, frozen omelets and limp sausages. Need to change this up some to offer a better variety to long term guest.
I would highly recommend anyone traveling through or staying in Beatrice to stay here. The service is very friendly and exceeded my expectations. A lot of construction occurring during my stay, but yet very relaxing. I will be returning next week for the week, and again on a weekly basis.

This hotel was undergoing renovation during my stay, but the room was very clean. There was some dust from drywall work in the hallways and stairwells. The toilets could definitely use pressure-flush assistance. I stayed on the top floor on a warm evening and the air conditioner had difficulty keeping up, although its mediocre performance did not prevent me from sleeping. I did appreciate that the AC had a constant fan setting. I would have preferred bacon instead of sausage for breakfast. (McCook HI Express serves bacon.) Since I departed early, the breakfast startup at 0500CST was appreciated. Mine was a pleasant stay in a quiet town over Labor Day weekend.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by cholt1990 A rare disappointment with HI brand
The Holiday Inn Express in Beatrice, NE was my first ever disappointment with the HI brand. I stayed for 5 nights and would have only stayed one if there were other options in the city. There are signs posted that they are under construction, but for the 6 days I was there, (training in their conference center all day long) there was not 1 worker present.
The carpets in the hallway were stain filled and not swept during the week. I know this because of the dirt piles that remained all week. The bathroom in the conference center had dead roaches in it all week. On Friday when I told the front desk that the number had grown from only a few to over a dozen, the man at the desk said "I will make a note of it." When I left 4 hours later, the roaches were still there. At least they were dead though! I only saw 1 that was alive.
The breakfast area was swept and mopped routinely and looked clean. However, the selection of food was smaller than I have ever experienced in a HI Express.
My advice would be to drive to Lincoln to stay. I won't go back to this hotel. :-(

We were part of a block of rooms for a wedding. Even though renovations were taking place during our stay, the workers were friendly. I am looking forward to a return visit once the renovations are complete. The hotel stay was a great experience. Can't wait to return during football season. Go Big Red!

When I scheduled this stay, I asked for a room that was near our daughter and her family. They provided adjacent rooms, which suited us well. This facility is currently undergoing some remodeling (07/2014).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rikki96 Excellent motel in a small town
I was in Beatrice to visit friends and made arrangements at the last minute to stay at the Holiday Inn for the night. The motel area was quiet and lots of parking was available.
The clerk was friendly and checked me in quickly. I found my room easily and while I was getting my bags in, the only thing I had to do was turn the temperature up a little. I spent a quiet and restful night there. The bed was very comfortable and I wasn't bothered by any other guests.
Breakfast was very good and plentiful and I was able to check out quickly and get on the way.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jara 12 Room smelled of dirty socks
Stayed in two different rooms, due to unfriendliness of front staff and not helping to book rooms with the hotel being full. The room we received on the 2nd floor smelled of dirty socks. Then some idiots decided to pull the fire alarm on a Saturday night with tons of sleeping kids there for a baseball tournament. Beds were confortable and pillows ok. It is one of the best hotels in Beatrice to stay so I guess you take what you can get.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Visitor from NV I would skip this HIE until remodeling is over.
Our room seemed shabby and I realize this hotel is in the middle of a remodel but I think the prices should reflect what you are receiving.
Our room wasn't clean enough w/ popcorn kernels on the carpet.
The bathroom light took 15 minutes to warm up to be able to see well in the bathroom/shower area.
The tub/shower plug did not work properly and repeatedly closed on its own while we showered.
I don't feel this hotel meets the standard that we have expected at HIE.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Steeles Remodling - Needs it!!
I had high expectations of this location, especially compared to most of the other options in Beatrice. We had also spent the previous night in a Holiday Inn Express in Des Moines and had a fantastic experience there.
I had requested a room for 4, 2 adults and 2 children, teenagers. The website knew this information and offered me the choice of a King bed suite. Knowing there was a sleeper sofa, I could only assume that it was able to sleep 2 to meet the accommodation needs that I listed.
We arrived to find the hotel completely full (not a particular problem) but also going through a lot of renovation. There were ladders and equipment all over the hotel and dust cloths, etc. This is at least an encouraging sign for the future.
When we got to our room, we found out that it was still on the list to be remodeled based on the quality of the room. The primary concern was sleeping space. The sleeper sofa wasn't even big enough to qualify as a love seat in my estimation, and when it was opened up, it seemed smaller than a twin bed. Not what 2 teenagers need. The mattress on the bed was 3 inches thick at best and it was obvious that it would be a miserable night for the person who slept on it.
I went to the front desk and told them that the accommodations were inadequate for 4 despite the website indicating that it was a match. I asked if I could get a rollaway bed to meet the need. The clerk stated that the hotel was full, that she wasn't sure they had any available, but she would check and call the room. She did call back fairly quickly, but with news that they did not have any available. The best option they could provide was additional bedding materials. So we had to place blankets on the the thinly carpeted floor for one of the teenagers.
The air/heat unit was the older style of push buttons on the unit. As I said, carpet was thin and old. Primary king bed was fine. Other furnishings were a little dated, but passable and clean.
Breakfast was great. No other problems. Still think that its a better option than most others in Beatrice.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DanyGS Not a good experience
Upon entering our room it reeked of smoke. We immediately
turned on the air conditioner to get some fresh air. The air conditioner was extremely old therefore we then had smoke smell mixed with musty smell.
After an hour of getting showered and ready for bed we pulled out the sleeper sofa for my daughter to sleep on only to find a cigarette under the cushions.
We are not a picky family, all we want is clean, we did not feel that expectation was met here.
The staff was very nice yet the price that I was given on the phone did not match the price I had to pay. I pulled up my reservation email and it didn't have the price I was quoted so I blame myself for not making sure I was given the quoted price so I paid $30 extra.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BobbK Generally good hotel/Heat/AC problems
The location is convenient for the city of Beatrice and is the nicest hotel for miles around. We stay at this location every other year when we are in town for the Christmas holidays. We were disappointed few years ago when they removed the hot tub, but the pool is still nice. Breakfast is always plentiful and fresh. My only complaint is with the heat/ac on our last visit. No matter what the thermostat was set at the heat ran constantly if it was turned on. We had to use the A/C in the winter to get the room cooled down.
The fan never cycled off and on like it should have. We ended up just getting along with nothing turned on, that seemed to be the most comfortable. We mentioned the problem to the staff, but they did not do anything about it.
