Grand Junction Holiday Inn 9/5-9/6

A friendly greeting from the front desk attendant welcomed us to the hotel. Although dressed rather casually, it was a nice change from the hustle and bustle of many hotel check-in experiences. My first impression of the hotel room was pleasantbed was a true queen adorned with a variety of pillows and a tufted headboard.  The color scheme was earthy browns that complimented each other well. The spacious bathroom also stood out as it had a home-like shower and a high movable shower head.  The room also showcased a modern 32 inch flat screen television and a comfortable chair and ottoman. 

The only downsides to the room were no refrigerator, being close to the interstate (cars going by all night), and thin ceilings where we could hear the guests above us running around as early as 7:00 A.M. The bar stayed open to 10 p.m. which was a bit early to close. I also felt that the hallways, lobby, and bar the hotel were a bit on the chilly side. Hotwire granted this hotel 3 stars, which I would agree with in terms of room comfortability but outside of the room there were some issues as formerly mentioned. Due to this I am inclined to consider this hotel somewhere in the range between 2 ½ and 3 stars.
