No issues but nothing special. This is a good value hotel for the area - the room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the air conditioner did a fair job, the shower was fine (although the shower rod was hung a little low). The room layout was a little unusual but actually worked well for two guys on a golf... More

The location to ASU is great if you need to visit. Robert at the front desk was great and helpful. They were all out of 2 queens so he brought up extra blankets and comforters. Excellent Service. Breakfast in the morning was good as well. They say the hours are until 10 a.m. but that when they stock the items... More

This was my second unpleasant experience at a Holiday Inn Express in the Phoenix area. I travel quite a bit and have come to appreciate a nice hotel that is reasonably priced for the particular area I am traveling to. When my hubby and I arrived, the front desk was nice. The lobby and the hotel itself looked dated...even though... More

We really had a quick turn-around trip, since we needed to make an early flight. Unfortunately, their shuttle service doesn't begin until 7am. However, they recommended Sammy's Taxi and Sammy was there at 4am, on time, and did an excellent job. The folks at the front desk were very helpful in not only setting up Sammy, but also in picking... More

We like Holiday Inn Express Hotels and this one was on par with the best. The room was large, clean and comfortable. The people at the front desk were friendly and really seemed to enjoy helping us find a fun restaurant. And the hotel's breakfast was good, too.

This is a great hotel, friendly staff, efficient and a good value for the money. It was close to ASU and a short distance to at least 3 great malls. This is what I expect when I go to a Holiday Inn Express Very happy traveler

We chose this property since my son had to attend orientation at ASU. Easy check in, super clean and comfortable room, and a decent breakfast. This place met my prerequisites: free parking, free breakfast, and free wi-fi. I'm glad we stayed and will return when visiting our Sun Devil!
