We booked online for the 1st time not knowing cstn. We got put in a smoking room with a king bed. We're a family of 4 (2 adults and 3 year old twins) we took the room because they were full.

This super clean property knows how to treat their guests. From check in to checkout, the service was professional yet friendly. Flavored water and mints are a lobby mainstay. The breakfast room was large and airy. Many typical breakfast items to choose from, both hot and cold entrees. You can even get a to-go bag if you need it. The... More

We stayed here with a group of 25 for four nights while attending the Tucson Rock Show. I have to say this is one of the most accommodating hotels we have stayed in.

This HIX was an unscheduled stop due to a medical emergency; it was the only Holiday Inn in the area with a vacancy. We lucked out because it was a very nice hotel. We enjoyed the hot breakfast and there were no problems. This location would have been very difficult to find if our car were not equipped with GPS.... More

We stayed here for a wedding nearby. The location was perfect and easy to get to from the interstate. The staff was friendly and helpful. We stayed in a king room that was roomy and clean.

This Holiday Inn is near everything and is very convenient. The lobby is very nice with free favored water.

Seems to be an older hotel. Beds are comfortable. Door to get into elevator is tiny, just wide enough for the cart to squeeze through. Carpet in room had stains on it, but otherwise room was clean. Wifi was reliable.

We stayed there three nights. The location was good, near to everything (restaurants, Starbucks, shopping). The room was clean and neat. The beds were comfortable. The maid service was thorough. I appreciated having a microwave and mini-fridge. We had high expectations but were disappointed that the internet connection in our room so poor. Spotty and unreliable. That's a big problem...
