We had booked a room with two queen beds but upon arrival was told that the room was not available and that happens with online booking. They told us that the only option was a single king bed in which we were charged for the double queen room. This was the first negative, next we had bugs crawling all over the room. They were on the curtains, ceiling, walls, and ninth stands. They look like a small black beetle.

Hello, I am sorry to hear that there were some complications with your reservation. When booking on line sometimes they have you book a standard room and it comes through as what we call a flow through room. Which is whatever we have available. So we do apologize for that inconvenience. The beetles that you are referring to are elm bugs/box elder bugs, they are kind of a pest. We are doing our best to resolve that issue but I will talk to my staff and see if we can come up with a better solution. Thank you for taking the time to leave us this feedback and for choosing to stay at our hotel. Have a great day.

Wonderful

Stayed while having a family death. Staff was so very accomidating, even went so far as to provide us with multiple boxes of tissues for us to use ( we hadn't even thought of needing them). Also they went to great efforts to place the family in close proximity to each other. This helped a great deal as there were numerous visits to each others rooms to work out our details. Holiday Inn Express Dinosuarland in Vernal, Utah truely made us feel at home and that we're a member of the family. They are treasured members of our now too. Thank you.

under rated

This is the nicest Holiday Inn Express I have ever stayed in. Good beds, multiple pillow types on each bed, big desk with plenty of electrical outlets where you can get to them (without standing on your head!), comfortable soft chair, granite counter tops in the bathroom, nice large walk in shower (no tub), big towels, all amenities. The free Breakfast was outstanding. So many options, all fresh and warm, staff present to clean tables etc .

way overpriced

watch out for bate and switch tactics! I was quoted one price, and way overcharged when I later saw my bill. No fridge or microwave, Too dark to see to do makeup in bathroom, rude staff, not helpful. Done with this place!

Over Priced

Hotel is newest in town. With Holiday Inn logo you would think you would get your moneys worth.\nDesk personnel lack personality and have little concern about your comfort.\nAlways ask for room on back side as the rooms on street side sound as if you left the window open. Petroleum trucks run all night. Very noisy.\nAt 150+ you would assume better. Water takes a while to heat up.\nNo refrigerators or microwaves in rooms or lobby.\nTv's are set at a certain level if you have hearing issues you have to sit right next to TV.\nSome breakfasts are ok. But not close to other Holiday inn express facilities.\nInternet service is just terrible. Pick up wireless from outside of hotel. Hotel as ethenet hookup but it never works properly.\nDouble check your reservation rate. Bait and switch tactics are used. Double check hotel bill when leaving as they usually overcharge.\nDo to oil boom they gouge you and hope to pay off hotel before new hotels are complteted in Mid 2008.

Family Trip

I stayed at this Hotel with my husband and three children. You would think a hotel at this price would have a roll-away bed to accomidate our fifth person- but not this one! It made for very uncomfortable sleeping arrangements. The woman at the front desk was not helpful or concerned with this issue. Was not made to feel welcome. Not a family Friendly Place!
