Trinidad Holiday Inn
During our 2009 Southwest sojourn you’ll see lots of lodging reviews at members of the InterContinental Hotel Group. Over the pass few years we’ve become rather fond of the Holiday Inn Express brand. Generally finding a clean, comfortable stay at a fair price and consistency of quality from one location to another. Reservations through their website are easy to make and the lowest Internet price available. I have found calling the hotel direct sometimes gets a better rate.
I’ve found Priority Club membership a rewarding program – easy to earn and redeem points. On this trip we’re using points for six nights and earning bonus points by accumulating eight or more additional nights. Please follow along as I blog brief reviews of each facility we use.
The Trinidad, Colorado Holiday Inn is located at exit 11 on Interstate 25 (11 miles north of the Colorado/New Mexico border) . The three-story Holiday Inn is a totally new facility that opened in 2008. We made this reservation only a few hours before leaving home. The king room was comfortably furnished with night stands on both sides of the bed, easy chair with ottoman, flat-screen television, desk and wireless Internet that worked. Bathroom was large with everything functioning. All was new and clean.
The swimming pool and fitness center remain open until midnight. The hotel is designed so that these activity areas are away from guest rooms. A full service restaurant and bar is on site. On check-in we received a $5 coupon good towards breakfast in the restaurant.
The next time we need a room in the Trinidad/Raton area we’ll happily stay at the Trinidad Holiday Inn.
