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.

This hotel is brand new, so still very clean and updated. The staff were all friendly and the breakfast choices were wonderful. We would definitely stay here again if ever in the Grand Junction area and would recommend it to anyone needing a room there!

After staying in a dirty hotel in Durango it was wonderful to come to a clean and well managed hotel. The customer service, rooms and baths were great. We have stayed at this Holiday Inn Express multiple times and each time has been wonderful. We look forward to staying there again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Keira Staff Extremely Rude - wouldn't recommend staying here
We travel quite a bit and generally have good experiences at most hotels. However, we were treated so poorly by the front desk staff even Guest Relations at the Holiday Inn 800 number was surprised the Friday evening May 17, 2013 manager was so inflexible and rude. The Holiday Inn Suites staff also spoke with this manager and agreed how rude she was. I would highly recommend staying at the Holiday Inn Suites instead near the airport. Much, much better staff for the same room rate.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 The Best!
On our recent road trip, we stayed at a total of 7 HI Express sites and clearly this facility was the best on them all. Very clean and the staff went out of their way to assist us. I can't recommend this facilty high enough.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CountryGrandma Comfortable bed, nice pool, friendly staff
My grandson commented that his bed at this (his favorite) hotel is much more comfortable than his one at home! We both find something we like at the breakfast buffet, although I do wish you had soy or almond milk. He loves the pool, and this hotel is near all the best shopping and restaurants for this region (mall, discount stores, etc.). Since this community serves as the "city trip" for the surrounding rural areas, it makes for a great getaway where kids are happy and adults can take care of business.
I am a priority club member, and I am recognized as such. The views are not ideal, so I can't say the hotel has "atmosphere" but it is comfortable, has an attractive interior, and feels very safe.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RoadWarrior4life It doesn't get better in Grand Junction
It is hard to beat a newly remodeled hotel. But when you add in the service and amazing breakfast they include, you just can't find anywhere else to compete. This property just remodeled and they have discounts at the 50 odd restaurants that surround it. Service is amazing. They let me check in at 11 am (3 pm is standard). Got bonus points for mentioning their Facebook post. From morning to night, the staff is great. Smiles, directions, advice...whatever you need they are happy to help.
I have been a Prioirty Club member for over 7 years and I have not remember a nicer hotel that I have stayed at. Sure some have had minor things (PC floor, Concierge, etc) but in a whole this is hands down the best. And to top it off, all PC members get a goodie bag (Water, trail mix, chocolate) at check in.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quicksand Comfortable beds and fresh appearance
We stayed one night in a room with two queen beds. The beds were comfortable and the carpet appeared to be fairly new. The breakfast selection was great and tasty. Flat panel TV was appreciated. The air conditioner was very quiet which was a pleasant change from what we usually experience. Only negative was the noise from the room on the floor above us. Small kids jumping on the floor for two hours from 8 to 10 p.m. Was quiet once they went to sleep.
