Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gerry41 Great stay on I-70
We had a comfortable room just off I-70. Shamrock, TX doesn't seem to have a lot of hotels; so it was good to feel safe and comfortable in this convenient location. We had a two bed suite and it was clean and quiet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TJcajun Comfortable location
Overall hotel is a nice, well kept location. It is alot better than surrounding hotels. My only thing is the type of air freshner used did not smell good to me. That may only be my nose not liking it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Santafepaul Uncomfortable pillow top mattress
I should tell you that I spent 15 years in the hotel business as a General Manager, Regional Manager and Asset Manager. I just finished a 5000 mile road trip and the Shamrock, TX Holiday Inn Express was my last stay on the road. I began to look for HI Express Hotels because of the amenities, the consistency and cleanliness of the rooms and the locations along the interstates. I had only minor concerns along the way not specific to Shamrock. I helped develop the "free breakfast" at Residence Inns back in the early 80's and we had the same issues. If the breakfast is scheduled to run until 9:30 it should be fully stocked until then. The only other minor concern is the overuse of "room freshener". This stuff smells worse than the cheapest perfume and I think it should be banned from use. The only place I really noticed it on this trip in a HI was in the lobby of the Spence Lane property in Nashville. If my room smelled like that lobby I could not have slept there.
The main reason I am taking time to write this review is because of the "luxurious" pillow top mattresses in Shamrock, TX. Over 30 million americans have lower back problems and I am one. The American Chiropractic Society has a short list of things you can do to help and one near the top of the list is, at least, a medium firm mattress. I knew when I laid down I was going to wake up with a back ache and I did (my first of the trip). If I was going to be in Shamrock another night I would have had to change hotels. I don't feel these mattresses should ever be used in a hotel.
Although my overall rating for this hotel was poor, it was all because of the mattress. Overall, after several stays in Holiday Inn Express Hotels, I was very pleased and I will use your hotels again, but I will first be sure of the mattresses used. Thanks for listening, Paul Parker

Although I was not thanked for being a Platinum member, we had a great room and were very happy with the property. We had been at 7 HI properties in the past 9 days and this was easily the best

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jimret Hotel Dirty with bugs
Staff was very friendly. Hotel beyound the lobby was very dirty. Third floor did not look like it had been vacuumed in awhile. Also there was a strange odor in the hallways on first and second floor. Found a couple of bugs in the room. The smoke detector started alarming at 330am with low battery beep. Staff tried to replace with another battery but still beeped. We gave up trying to sleep and got up.
Breakfast was cold and not fresh.
I did ask for some compensation because of the smoke alarm. The manager did reduce the rate.
The staff tried to make our stay comfortable given what they had to work with. This hotel definitely needs managerial attention.

My grandson and I were traveling back to our home in Tennessee. Over the years my wife and I have stayed in Shamrock and one stay at the Holiday Inn Express there convinced us to always stay there. This stay was as to be expected...OUTSTANDING!

I have been staying at this Holiday Inn Express since it first opened about 6 years ago. It is convenience to the Interstate 40 and a sentimental journey down the old Route 66. Having grown up in Shamrock, Texas, this is my first choice of places to stay, to connect with friends and family. The Shamrock Holiday Inn Express provides all the comforts that you would associate with the IHG group, and the staff welcomes you with open arms.
If your travel plans call for a drive through the Texas Panhandle, please consider a night or two at the Holiday Inn Express in Shamrock, Texas at the intersection of Highway 83 and I-40 - right behind the world famous U-Drop-Inn and Tower Station, as seen in the CARS movie.

Breakfast room was very convenient for visiting with former classmates. Hotel is very clean. There is only one true ADA (mobility impaired) room. As many of the guests were seniors (some came for a 60-year reunion) this is inadequate. Bathrooms need towel bars.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PJM59 Bathroom not clean
I was booked at the hotel by my company as I was in Wheeler on business. Upon arriving at 12:30 am I emptied my suitcase and hung everything up. I then went to use the bathroom and found that the toliet bowl rim hadn't been cleaned (toilet seat was up# It was disgusting. As it was 1:00 in the morning by now and I had to be up at 5:00 I cleaned the bathroom myself #carry clorox wipes with me. I travel every week). I advised the gentlemen at the desk in the morning even showed him the picture I took. I said to him I can only assume this is not what you want your hotel guests to see. He agreed and apoligized. I said to him as we both know this room was not cleaned please send someone up there to clean the bathroom. Upon return to my room at 5:30 it hadn't been cleaned. I spoke with another young lady and she said she would speak to the manager but yet no one ever spoke with me regarding this issue. The hotel is in deseperate need of updating. The rug and couch in my room had stains all over them. The hotel smells very musty. It really needs a good cleaning. I travel every week and usually stay at most Holiday Inn Express. This one was a great disappointment.

Check in was so easy and the Front Desk was so nice they offered me information to go out to eat but I was too tired to go out but appreciated the offer. The room was so relaxing and the bed had very nice new pillows that made my bed so comfortable I slept like a rock. I will stop back there again if I'm back though that area.

I am a return guest and as always everything was so relaxing and clean! I was really pleased with all the upgrades with the new pillows and the 40in TV in my Suite. The new breakfast items that offered alternative healthier choices of fruit and oatmeal. Can't wait to return back to Shamrock, TX again because the staff is always so friendly and ready to meet my needs.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Travel parent Service
We found the staff kind of lazy or perhaps uninterested or tired.
We also stayed the next two nights at Holiday Inn Express. One outside of St Louis Missouri and then outside Erie Pennsylvania. The last night was BY FAR !!! the nicest, the building was lovely and the staff were exceptionally helpful!!!! They even had already prepared photocopies of directions to restaurants. Little things that made a difference such as wet-wipes to remove germs from the telephones all indicated a very well managed property.
We would drive longer in a day to return to this location!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CBW22 Very good stopover
Nice room, very clean, plenty of space between beds. Beds & pillows comfortable. Large bathroom with recessed shelves for the towels & was able to put our own bathroom totes on the shelves. No freezer section in the small refrigerator but they were able to put our ice packs in their freezer. Very good breakfast & ample selections.
A bit more pricey than other hotels in the area but chose it because it was 100% non-smoking.

the room was very clean, and comfortable. Room needs attention as the arm on the chair was torn,pillows were not good, they were all lumpy. The frame around the bathroom door was all broken. Carpet and room was very clean, and staff was very nice.
Room was very spacious.
