I came to Tucson to celebrate my parents anniversary. We had several family members in town, so my brother and I stayed at this Holiday Inn Express. My mother chose to drive through all the hotels in this area (as they were close to her home) and suggested we book the Holiday Inn over the other hotels nearby, based on... More

This hotel is next to the freeway, so is great for the casual or business traveler. Shopping and restaurants are close by. Downtown Tucson is only a few miles south on I-10. There are many outdoor activities nearby. I only stayed for one night, but the room was very comfortable and fairly priced. There is a very good breakfast each... More

We has stated at the Holiday Inn Express in Las Cruces and really liked it, so we booked this stay the next night. Most Holiday Inn Express are relatively new and thus location was in that same category. Very convenient location just north of Tucson. That allowed an early start towards Hoover Dam and Vegas without having to deal with... More

On the northwest side of Tucson headed out of town, made for a good start in the morning when headed toward San Diego. Very new side of town with a large selection of restaurants and retail stores for anything that might be needed. Good access off and on the interstate.

The hotel is near where we needed to stay for business. The room was clean but the bed was soft. I personally like a very hard mattress. The breakfast selection was terrible and so I choose to eat outside the hotel even though breakfast was included. Many good restaurants are within walking distance or a short car ride away across...

The rooms are spacious and beds are comfortable. I would have given this a 5 rating if not for the very odd smell in the room that never went away even with the window open. The hallway smelled like cigarettes. Hotel breakfast was good, had wonderful cinnamon rolls. The hotel seriously would have been great other than the smells.

Worst hotel stay in my 25 years of business travel. Required to sign a statement that we would not smoke in the room, but apparently everyone else smoked in there. The windows were covered with very dirty little kid hand prints. Went to my father's funeral with the kids and I smelling like we spent the night in an ashtray.
