We have stayed here many times on our way to Texas. We have our Lab with us this trip so we're staying at another hotel. This HIE has been consistently clean and friendly. It's right off interstate 10 and close to a lot of restaurants. I recommend this hotel.

I stayed here with my wife and adult daughter on a drive from Reno to El Paso. I like the Holiday Inn family and stay at their properties whenever I can. This one was very clean, had excellent beds, and was well located for our purposes. Finding the way to the pool was harder than I expected, I was looking... More

My wife and I stayed here while visiting Tuscon for sightseeing. Check-in was quick and efficient. The room was spacious, well furnished and clean. Breakfast was a good, except the eggs seemed to be powdered, which was a disappointment. Parking can get tight late at night. We had a mix-up over pool towels (they have them, but you must ask...

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

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
