Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TomInMontana Not up to snuff
We stayed at this hotel in October 2014 as part of a two week trip. This was the 4th Holiday Inn property we stayed at on this trip, and it was the least impressive.
Check-in was okay - the room was clean for the most part; however there was a large amount of dust in the open area beneath where the TV sits. It was enough that my wife was able to write in it. Additionally, when the first tissue was taken out of the tissue box - the box was empty. Minor items, but it shows a lack of attention to detail by the cleaning crew.
We are very early risers, and we went in and out of the hotel main entrance several times between 4AM and 5AM and never saw anyone at the desk or even look around the partition behind the desk to see who was coming in/going out.
Fifteen minutes after breakfast started, all of the coffee was gone, and I had to get the front desk clerk to make more. She seemed a bit put out that she had to do so. There were no workers in the kitchen that we could find, and we never saw anyone from the hotel in the eating area.
We were not impressed at all with this hotel... and considered it mediocre at best. If we pass through Salina again, we will find a different hotel to stay at.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by highlife14 New hotel but noisy
I always ask for a room on the top floor but usually those requests are ignored. I was placed on the 3rd floor of 4. I assumed the hotel was new enough that I might not hear others above me. Wrong! I had to call and complain but the pounding and jumping and banging never stopped. Started up again bright and early in the morning. Don't understand why those requests are ignored - or why the front desk can't at least ASK where their guests would be most comfortable.

Hotel was very relaxing, there was not a lot of noise inside or outside of property. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was great; very clean and inviting. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. The bathroom, hallways and common areas were clean and well lit.

Great hotel just off interstate but very quiet. All very clean and well decorated creating a very pleasant ambience.
Welcoming and comfortable.
Room was quiet and peaceful. Located only a 5 minute easy drive from downtown. Which offered easy street parking and a variety of restaurants. Favorite was Blue Skye brew and food great place. Excellent beer and great wood fired pizza.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cygnet444 Did Not Stay Here This Night; Reservation Incorrectly Recorded
I did not reserve a room here for AUGUST 18, 2014, nor did I stay here on that date.
My reservation for exactly a month later (SEPTEMBER 18) was *incorrectly * recorded somewhere in the Holiday Inn system as being on this date. I don't remember the name of the person who recorded the reservation incorrectly ( I know it was not anyone at the Salina location) , and he did not ask if I wanted an email confirmation and I neglected to ask for one as he seemed to be in such a hurry.
When I arrived at this location on SEPTEMBER 18, I was told that my confirmation number was for a month earlier, and that I had been charged as a no-show on that date.
Happily, on SEPTEMBER 18 , Kay gave me the last room; and Manager Debbie Isaacson resolved the problem with the no-show charge. I will stay here in the future, because I am so grateful to these two for making my stay *(on SEPTEMBER 18)* so pleasant, and helping me out so much. Wonderful, friendly people, and they restored my trust in Holiday Inns after the Holiday Inns reservation system messed up my reservation.
These are both top-notch people, and I would hire them in a second if I could. I hope to see them again next fall when I take my annual driving vacation to Colorado and Wyoming.

Another enjoyable stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Salina. When en route to Colorado, this is our go-to hotel to break up the trip. It is quiet and the staff is fantastic. Highly recommend.

Rooms are a nice size - don't feel cramped. Bathroom is modern. The breakfast was better than most Holiday Inn Express hotels. The breakfast attendant was really working hard to make sure the food was ready.

After a long hot drive, we were very impressed with everything about the Holiday Inn Express. Very clean, very nice front desk lady, and the room was perfect. I-70 is a long drive through Kansas, and this hotel was very welcoming to our tired bones.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by no1oscar If it aint heaven you can see it from here
I have been quite remiss in my tardyness visiting the comment page to relate the fabulous attributes of this property located at the crossroads of interstate 70 and Interstate 135/US 81 in Kansas. During my visit I felt most acutely the management of this property's commitment to give their guests as much for their dollar as they could. I do not believe you will find a more hospitable Holiday Inn Express on this planet. It is well worth your effort to find this jewel in the crown of the IHG properties when you come the the intersection of the afor mentioned interstates.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Relocation Great Staff/Service, Safe, Comfortable
I was greeted with a smile and while being checked in; I was informed of the complimentary evening appetizers/drinks, breakfast, guest laundry, and swimming pool. The hotel was clean, comfortable and safe. The evening appetizers and morning breakfast were both delicious and fulfilling. The staff were welcoming, friendly and courteous especially the front desk receptionist. I definitely recommend this particular Holiday Inn.

Both my wife and I commented on the cleanliness.
The beds were much more comfortable than the other Holiday Inn's that we have been staying.
Having the thermostat on the wall is very convient.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Katybug new and nice looking
It was a little pricey in our opinion. As a traveler passing "through" and just looking for a clean comfortable room we have learned we can count on HI Express, but noted that the price has gone UP since our last trip. We travel to visit family, but cannot drive too long without a break, so we use the quick one night stay. This facility had a lot of nice things available which we did not use, but nice to have if you are staying longed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dairy Mom Delicious breakfast - clean and comfy hotel
Breakfast choices were abundant and delicious. They offered drinks and appetizers on Friday evening that we saw, but didn't have time to enjoy. It looked delicious though. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Our suite even had foldout sofa bed. The only drawback was that the window curtains couldn't be shut to block out the parking lot/streetlights. This made sleeping a little difficult.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by crafty88 Very Clean hotel and breakfast was great
This hotel seemed to be brand new because it was so clean and modern, but found out it has been open for 3 years. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was good and had plenty to offer. Beds were comfy and had soft and firm pillows in the room. We had trouble with the internet, but we were in a room at the end of the hall and think that may have been the problem. Other than that, it was a great stay and would stay there again next time in the area.

Rude front desk staff, didnt acknowledge my priority club status. Reserved a room with 2 beds when i arrived was given single king, told hotel was sold out but when i went on my IHG app i was still Ble to book a room with 2 beds. I hate being lied to over something so minor.

We have stayed here several times and when family was coming into town we suggested they stay here as well. The lounge is so nice and the beverages and snacks a special treat in the evening. The breakfast does not disappoint. We were able to gather in the lounge later in the evening with the family and it was so nice to have that available.

The hotelwas very clean and the staff was very friendly. The only negatives were the fitness room which only provides cardio equipment and the wifi which would work for about an hour and then i would have to take my tablet down to the lobby before it would alow me to log back in.

I Left my personal pillow in the room when we left. I didn't realize until 12 hours later that I had forgotten it. I called and they told me housekeeping had turned it in. I was so thankful & surprised that it had been turned in. Thank you for shipping it to me even though it was on my $$. Very grateful for the honest housekeeper! Cindy =)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by vibrantorange Great respite!
My husband and I drive from the east out west every two years or so. We like to stop in Salina as it is a friendly town with about everything you could need for travel. This Holiday Inn Express seems very new and it is spotless. The desk staff is very friendly, as is the breakfast server. When we arrived, there was a hospitality hour going on, with complimentary wine, beer and snacks. What a nice welcome! Despite getting the last available room, the room was not second rate at all--it was spacious and well furnished.
Breakfast was excellent, especially the cinnamon rolls.
Despite the location out of town, I would recommend this Holiday Inn Express to any traveler, whether travel is for business or pleasure
