Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hixinstix Good stay
Clean facility and close to downtown. Parking is not particularly good, but that is the case in all of Glenwood Springs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Adventure Family Accommodating staff, excellent room, heated pool!
This hotel was great as most of my experiences with the Holiday Inn Express'. Friendly and accommodating staff. Generously provided an upgraded room at no cost. When I made the reservation I recall mentioning I was on military leave with my family. Guessing the manager was thankful for my service and wanted to do something nice. At least that's what I believe to be the reason for the upgrade. Not that this may happen all the time but any place that is supportive of the military and will do things like this will always get a thumbs up from me. Regardless if that's the reason, way to go Holiday Inn at Glenwood, CO (Aspen area).
Pool was heated...added bonus! Almost as warm as the hot springs down the road from the hotel. Speaking of, this hotel couldn't be more perfectly located. It's within a pleasant walking distance to restaurants, attractions, and pretty much everything else you would need. For us, we went there mainly to get outdoors and do some biking. Hotel is next to a paved trail system that is second to none. Out the front doors you can be on your way along the Colorado river through Glenwood canyon or take the other direction and go towards Aspen. It was crazy how convenient that was to be immediately next to the trail systems.
If I had to anything that could use a bit of improvement, I'd say the breakfast area could be a shade bigger. It was packed so we had to sit outside by the pool to eat. Not a big deal since the weather was perfect. But I can see how stressful that can be with a family and not find a table. Typical breakfast items available. The omelet things are cheap but they get the job done. And of course, they had their famous cinnamon rolls, which I'll be so bold to say is better than other hotels. I gain five pounds every time I stay at these places. I'm sad to leave just because of those darn things. I know I'm not alone.
In short, this place is awesome. I'm usually always happy staying at these hotels, but this place exceeded expectations. I'll be a returning customer. Enjoy.
