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...

Please accept our apologies for the quality of breakfast you encountered. The pancake machine is one of the highlights of breakfast. Our rooms are equipped with Ethernet connections for your convenience. Our location is great and close to many of Tucson's amazing attractions. We hope that you allow us another opportunity to serve your lodging needs in the future. More

Quality of the stay was typical of a Holiday Inn Express. No surprises, just a clean room with a decent bed and mediocre Internet speed. I liked the location because I could walk to dinner at Texas Roadhouse. The amenities were low quality as was the TP. Staff in the breakfast room were attentive and friendly. I would stay here...

Very nice staff. Rooms are clean and quiet. Recommend for families and senior travelers. Breakfast is the typical hot with eggs, biscuits, etc. Coffee is good. Gas station just as you enter or leave. Walmart across the street. Very convenient location.

This property is very convenient for the freeway with a few good eateries close by. Our receptionist recommended the Texas Roadhouse and it was excellent. Both receptionists were friendly and helpful. However...the room was a little tired with a chipped bath. Noise from the freeway intruded the room and woke us prematurely. The breakfast selection wasn't great. The fruit juice... More

I would probably rate this hotel a 2.5 out of 5. The room itself was nice (nice decor and modern furniture). The bedroom area was clean. The floors in the bathroom and the sink area were clean too. However, the shower was disgusting. I don't know if it was accidently missed when cleaning occured earlier. Black 'stuff' was in the... More

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.

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.
