Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dsaps Best Holiday Inn hotel
I wanted a hotel to stay during my travel, and booked this one. I didn't had much expectations, but booked this one based on the travel ratings, but I must say this hotel deserved all the stars. This was nice, clean, hotel with super friendly staff, good variety of breakfast. It exceeded all my expectations. Would definitely recommend this property y

The exterior is being renovated so the appearance was not welcoming but totally understandable. I would like to see Breakfast go until 10:00 at least on the weekend. Outdoor seating or gathering area would be a plus!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HCCC Fantastic staff and good value
This hotel is quite lovely. The staff was very nice and accommodating for our Chihuahua show held at the nearby Lincoln College. We truly enjoyed the pool and the hotel itself was quiet during the night.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A. Nonymous Hotel has what I expect from H. I.
This hotel has "Holiday Inn quality". There are certain things you expect from a Holiday Inn and this hotel has never been a disappointment. I've stayed at this hotel every couple of years and it has been a consistently good hotel every time.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by bearskipper BAD STAY
The over all of this hotel is very poor the room was nice however if you wont to use the pool you had to deal with kids screaming the hole time. You had the bunch of kids running up and down the hall most of the night. The hotel was under going construction and you look out your window and saw scaffolding. We were told that we would not be able to be up graded when we got there. There ground were not well kept the grass was very tall the only reason I bring this up is we do travel with are service dogs and walking them in the tall grass that was wet from the rain the night before was not fun because the bottom of your pants will be very wet so you will have to change or just start your day travel with wet pants.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Katie98 comfortable beds...relaxing!
This was our first stay at this HIE...our only real complaint was that the air conditioner could not keep the room cool. Obviously it was better than none...but needs updating badly. Staff great. One thing I totally appreciated is that the sheets and bedding did NOT look like they had sat in the dryer or wadded up to bring on floor...they actually looked ironed. I really liked that. I don't have wrinkled bedclothes at home, and don't like it when they look poorly anywhere I stay!

Spent the week-end with my grandchildren and had a blast. The pool temperature was perfect on a hot day. We loved the poolside towels provided by the hotel. After a swim we went to our room and got in the Jacuzzi just for the fun of it - all three of us fit in there perfectly!!. I love spending time with my grandkids. We had snacks and watched TV and they had no problems falling to sleep! Thanks for the memories with loved ones!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PhilMEngland An excellent night's sleep
This Holiday Inn Express provided us with an excellent night's sleep.
I have stayed in numerous Holiday Inn Express hotels in the past, both in USA and Europe, and so I know what to expect in terms of room and facilities. This HIE exceeded my expectations.
We were greeted at the front desk on arrival almost as friends. Check-in took only a couple of minutes.
Breakfast was superb with a greater choice of food than what we were expecting. It was the first time that we experienced the pancake maker!
The HIE, Lincoln is situated by the I55 intersection and close to the heritage "Route 66". We found the HIE Lincoln a convenient stopping point on our route south from Chicago, experiencing "Route 66", our tourist visit to Springfield and experience of "Armish country".

If you will be staying at this particular hotel, be sure to ask for a non-smoking room, and be sure to specify that you want a room that has never been a smoking room. We were very disappointed that our non-smoking room had been a smoking room not too long ago. Even though we checked in early, our request for a different room could not be accommodated because the hotel was going to be almost full. The front desk did send someone to put a machine in the room for a 'treatment'. Didn't help very much. Otherwise, it was just an ok stay.

Thank You, Marsha , Karen, Glenna and front desk staff.
I did want to mention the air conditioner did work sufficient
but it is very noisy . other than that we had a very nice stay as we always do when we visit for the motorcycle races twice a year. We truely enjoy visiting with your staff they are very friendly and we have enjoyed their long term loyalty with your hotel. We have become very good friends due to our many visits.
Thank You Again, Tom

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Patricia8899 Convenient Interstate Lodging
Pros: comfy bed, clean room, complimentary newspaper, lots of TV channels, fridge, coffee maker, microwave, split bath (with sink outside tub and toilet), good/plenty towels, breakfast ready and refilled regularly, front desk staff got us into our room early because it was ready
Cons: lots of noise coming from floor above, lamps have a difficult switch that has to be pushed down hard to light, soap melts all over the counter because there is no 'real' soap dish, front desk staff efficient but not friendly (on previous stay we've been greeting upon entering and leaving the facility - this time front desk personal conversations continued with guests walking in and out),

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Imagination Bay Awesome bed and phenominal shower!
We had just finished a vacation in Branson, where we had stayed at one of the top ten resorts in the US. All I can say is Lincoln's Holiday Inn Express bed and shower exceeded the quality of that resort! We had a fantastic bed... not to soft... not to hard... just right... and the shower was phenominal! The breakfast was yummy and the staff very friendly. Thank you for ending our vacation on a high note!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rdansk Lincoln Holiday Inn
We stayed at this Holiday Inn for several weeks following a house fire. The staff were wonderful and became friends. They always had a smile on their faces and bent over backwards to make our stay as comfortable and convenient as possible. The only recommendation I would make is to lupdate the set up for the working travelers. The table and chair in the room were not adequate. The chairs were old and did not adjust. the table did not fit the chair height and really wasn't set up for today's needs in the technologically advanced world. Such as convenient outlets to set up a pseudo work station. I also had periodic issues with the wireless connection.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Wieser Change not good
Did not like that Skip and Krista were not there. Glad to see Karen in the breakfast area. Had to change rooms three times, but was my fault according to management. It wasn't that people were rude and didn't try to help, just didn't get anything resolved. Use to be one of my favorite hotels, because I travel a lot, but now I will not go out of my way to stay there, like I did when Skip and Krista were there, and always took care of their customers.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tilersmama2012 Unbelievable stay
On Nov 8th, I drove into Lincoln to visit my sister, which is a 4 hour drive from my home, at registration, I was informed that they had no reservation for me, i checked my bank card and saw the money had been taken off for the room, the desk clerk Krista advised me to call the travel agency that I used and find out why the room wasn't booked, when I called them I was told that the payment was being reimbursed into my bank account which would take 24 hours. I went back into the hotel to see if I could pay by check and told I couldn't, I was then advised to call the travel agency back and have them book our room, and not drop the payment, As I was on hold, I was told to go out to my car and get my husband and my daughter, and the hotel would help us, When I got back inside, I was still on hold, I was told to hang up, that the hotel was going to take care of us. The hotel gave me and my baby girl a place to stay when I was 4 hours from home, no place to go, and had very little cash in my pocket. Krista was a huge help, I couldn't ask for a better stay, We are going to make it our hotel of choice while we are in the area from now on.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Richard07 A good place to stay while traveling.
This appears to be an original Holiday Inn Express. Small lobby and breakfast area, room is small and out dated. But on the other hand it was reasonable and comfortable after a long day on the road. Reception was likewise mediocre, but efficient. No recognition of Priority Club.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Joeypaulshouse Nice property-Lousy bed
This is a clean, neat property with a friendly and organized staff. Unfortunately, the bed and pillows should have been replaced some time ago. The bathtub creaks loudly when standing in it, and the walls in the rooms are paper thin. You can hear the TV and conversations in the adjacent rooms.

I arrived on a very cold and snowy evening. I had broken my leg/ankle that morning and was not really prepared to travel, move luggage, being in a full leg cast. Your front desk man [Lance] was extremely helpful. He got me and my stuff to a room and settled in. We/he worked around the fact that I had no wheel chair and wasn't very "good" with crutches. I can not thank him enough! Jim & Susie

We had a chair that broke in our room because it was repaired with glue and then it broke when sat on. The overall cleanliness leaves a lot to be desired. The lobby, pool and the food area is clean. The rooms are marginal. This is one of the worst Holiday Inn I have stayed at in a very long time.
