Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by wturner77 A good stay overall
My stay here was nice. There was a good selection of fresh food at breakfast and all the areas of the hotel were neat and clean. The staff at this location could use a little pep though. Most times when walking through the lobby I barely received a hello to acknowledge my presence. They were lacking in smiles. Then in the morning the cleaning staff was very noisy. I was up and working in my room, but at 9:00 AM the cleaning staff was cleaning the rooms on either side. They had propped the door open with the slide lock and allowed the door to slam against it each time the entered or exited the room. Had I not already been awake this certainly would have kept me from sleeping.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beardown91737 Good night's rest
Got to the HI Express in Grand Junction after an all day and all evening drive. It is a couple miles off the interstate and more towards the business area of the city.
Once you get in the room it is the same as any other. You can count on a clean room, comfortable bedding, and a nice flat screen TV with all the channels. No problem getting to sleep quickly and waking up rested in that kind of environment.
With the breakfast buffet I was able to get back on the road and on my way again.

Stayed for a couple of nights during our visit to Colorado Wine Country.
Staff was helpful.
Recognized as an IHG Platinum member but not offered the usual upgrade.
Location was convenient to most points in the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rio12 Suite isn't best
I had expected a suite with two queen beds in the separated room. This had a queen or double in the room and a king in the main room, which also had the couch / living room. Not sure if this standard setup for all Holiday Inn Express suites, but it is not what I like.

We had a VERY difficult time to locate this hotel from the interstate. Should have given up but kept at it because of our last minute call to 1-800 holiday to make the reservation and could not cancel without charge. Will not go through this again!

I enjoy staying at this hotel. The staff are always very friendly and the rooms are always clean. I enjoy the breakfast and the hot tub the most. I stay at this hotel several times a month and have never had flaw! Plus the remodel looks great!

I like coming here because the staff is very freindly and semm like they want to be there. The rooms are always clean, breakfast is good, dining area gets full fast after 7 am. Not right on the main street, so you don't get all that road noise ( love that part ).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by twish77 Nice hotel, pool cleanliness issues
Nice hotel, however just a couple of gripes.
We used the swimming pool one afternoon, there were sweet wrappers and other bits of rubbish around the pool area and a rubber band in the pool. It could've and really should have been a much cleaner area.
Also, when opening the fridge in the bedroom, the carpet stopped at the fridge line and was frayed, by the side of the fridge and under it was visible concrete, only a little thing but it made it seem that corners had been cut, by the entire room not being properly carpeted. Again, just a little thing.
Obviously the front of the property is undergoing renovation, we were not aware of this until we checked in, however we were not disturbed by this thankfully, so did not find it a problem.
The receptionist however when we checked in was professional and friendly and had no hesitation in answering questions regarding places to eat etc...
This was one of 11 hotels we stayed in during our recent holiday and whilst it wasn't the best hotel we stayed in, it certainly wasn't the worst either.
If you want a decent hotel in a good location (near the freeway and Mesa mall) then this would be a good choice.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Redford1 smoker's residue in a non smoking room
We requested a non-smoking room and the one we received, though marked no smoking, wreaked of cigarette smoke. They had made an effort to cover the stench with air freshener and carpet cleaner but were not successful. We asked for another room but none were available. I have lung problems and was not able to sleep in these conditions. As a result, our clothing and baggage carried the stench long after leaving the room.
If you are a smoker, I respect your right to smoke. However; Please return that courtesy by respecting my right to expect a smoke free room to be just that... smoke free. That's what I am paying for... that's what I expect. You do a disservice to the motel owners/managers and to myself and others when you trash a non-smoking room by smoking in it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by disappointedConnie Remodeling?
When I booked this room it said they had remodeled in 2012 so I didn't expect them to be remodeling when we were there. They tracked mud into the entry. They had them stop work in the late evening. Men were outside of our room painting the wall, and the whole front of the hotel was being redone. A couple were screaming at each other using foul language for half an hour around 1:00 in the morning! The room that we were assigned to smelled very strongly of cigar smoke, even though it was a non-smoking room. They were very nice about giving us another room which was great. The view outside of our windows (we had a two-room suite) were of a graveyard for junked diesel trucks!
I think we should have been given a discount but didn't ask.

The hotel property was great. The only issue was with the reception staff, the employees in the evening shift were not very professional as they seemed to be disturbed when they were asked questions.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Skibum9610 Hotel under construction
The entire front of the hotel was covered with scaffolding, plastic sheeting, lots of construction workers and the associated noise. We couldn't even see out our window. I would have expected a "Pardon Our Dust" sign and a discount for the inconvenience and noise. The next time we come across a hotel in a similar situation we will opt to drive further to another facility. As a second note, a hotel in Colorado that doesn't carry Root Sports TV station to receive the Rockies game is not very supportive of the area team.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Todh Truley Outstanding Hotel
I have stayed at several Holiday Inns and Express. My stay at the Grand Junction Holiday Inn Express was over and beyond. I felt very comfortable there, kind of like it was a home away from home.
The first thing I notice was the staff made me feel like very welcomed. They where friendly, polite and genuinely enthusiastic. This was not just when I checked in but every time I walked through the door.
The breakfast was wonderful. The choices met my wants and nutrition values.
I would highly recommend this establishment to anyone who is passing through the area, either business or family vacation. The location is outstanding as well. Just a short drive to the airport, walking distance to a couple good restaurants and a movie theater next door.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by elJefe8weizen Fell short of expectations...
Arrived about 1830 on Sunday, 30 June to find a long line at the check-in desk. Only 1 very frustrated clerk was working, trying to make sense of some U/I system errors that prevented her from assigning rooms. After about 20-22 mins in the queue, my turn came. I had booked a room, I thought, using a combo of Reward Points and cash. When checking-in I requested a roll-away bed. The clerk said the room I booked wasn't authorized a roll-away but she would take care of it. (I mentioned that I stayed at the HIE in Cheyenne a week earlier, which was owned by the same franchisee, and it was okay in Wyoming, but not in Colorado?# After much ado, she booked us in a 1 BR suite but told me she'd been forced to "cancel" my reservation, but that if I contacted the rewards office, she was sure they could take care of it on Monday.
I sent an e-mail to the IHG rewards club that night...got no reply.
But wait...there's more. Monday morning came and we went to the breakfast area at 0910...selection was meager and we had to wait for a table. By the time we got a table and went up for food, the pancake machine was off, cooling down. Breakfast was supposed to run until 0930...but the server said she was sorry but she would start putting things away promptly at 0930. Unreal. #The breakfast attendant's attitude in Cheyenne was "as long as customers were in the area eating, she would keep the breakfast area open....# After breakfast the kids wanted to go for a swim, but when we got down to the pool, a sign on the door said it was closed due to "fecal contamination." Our three kids generally like to kill some time swimming...not here. We awoke Tuesday around 0720 to the clatter of a construction crew unloading scaffolding off a semi-truck flatbed for a roof repair. The view of the Colorado National Monument was awesome, contrasted by the beauty of the 18 wheeler junkyard situated immediately behind the hotel. Nice. It was more of the same at breakfast on Tuesday but we went earlier. The attitude of the breakfast server was still terrible, but it's not her fault -- the staff at this hotel was not on par with the staff in Cheyenne. Chalk that up to poor local training and poor management follow-through. And, while the pool was re-opened, no one wanted to swim in the "brown water." At check-out I found that we would be charged full price. The IHG rewards club POCs never contacted the hotel, or me, so...I'm still waiting for the IHG investigation to close...or at least for IHG to refund some 30,000 points and apologize for their SNAFU. Given how many times I've been called thus far, I might be waiting for a long while. Back to the Tuesday check-out...I wasn't happy about being hosed but we had to depart. I requested that the manager call me when he/she got in...on my cell. Guess what? No call. After staying two days in Cheyenne at their HIE near I-80, followed later in the week by two days at this HIE in Grand Junction, there was no comparison...the Grand Junction HIE fell far short of our expectations.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Taxchik I am suppose to be a Rewards Club Member
I was offered nothing when I checked in as a rewards member, in fact they did not even acknowledge me as a rewards member. They gave me a room over looking a JUNK YARD, in fact I had stayed at 3 different HI and I was given the same room # in all 3, Room 303. When I made my reservation I requested a "quiet" room, when I was in Cheyenne they put us on the side of the hotel where the train tracks were and all night a freight train kept going by keeping us awake, when I mentioned it the next morning to the desk clerk they said "is there anythng I can do" instead of offering an appology and offering to adjust the bill or something it was already too late to change rooms or do anything about a lost nights sleep.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mkd56 Comfortable bed and large, clean room.
Just stayed one night so it's difficult to judge too much. We had a nice, clean room, comfortable bed and the pool was nice and very clean. Slept well so either we were so tired from our road trip we heard nothing or it was actually quiet. Quiet is very hard to come by most times in hotels/motels. Staff was very friendly as well.

My wife and son were on there way the Grand Junction to visit Mesa university and I was on the phone trying to find them a place to stay. The on-line sites were not reliable with the short time I had to work with so I was dialing for rooms. Then I remembered my membership with Holiday Inn. I looked up the number and called the reservation group. They said they were able to take care of our needs with the "LAST ROOM AVAILABLE". What great service at a time I really needed Great service. ThaNK YOU!!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by nrskimi Not pleasant
I have stayed at many different HIE and this was probably the most unpleasant of them all. I booked my room on the computer under the government rate. When I arrived the lady working behind the counter said that rate did not apply to me because I was state and not federal. I tried to explain to her that I was both but since my credit card said Colorado that she had to charge me for the federal rate which was 14 dollars higher. I have never been told that there was a difference before. I spoke with the manager the following morning and she told me that the government rate is a flat rate and there is no difference that the per diem had gone up. I don't understand how I was able to book the room at one price and than on check find out it was 14 dollars more. The manager adjusted it for me, but had she not I was not approved for anymore than the government per diem. The staff was not very friendly at all this is a first out of all of the HIE's I have stayed at.
