Sorry, Holiday Inn Express, but you looked tired and worn. That doesn't mean everything was negative ! We checked in early on a Sunday morning and could go to our room immediately. That of course is always nice. The room on the 2nd floor was OK, with 2 doubles, a table with 2 chairs (not often found in hotels/motels !!!... More

The hotel was very clean and the room was comfortable. Breakfast was good and it was not cheap breakfast. It offered variety of breakfast. Swimming pool was smaller than we expected. But clean and comfortable room and hearty breakfast. It was a wonderful place to stay overnight. It is not a five star hotel but this place exceeded my expectation.... More

The staff (Daniel) was very helpful and considerate. We had come into town for a family emergency with no reservation. Daniel made sure we got the best rate and was of great assistance to us. The room was nice - clean and the beds were comfortable. We appreciate the great service. Thanks.

The desk staff are lovely and helpful. The rooms are old fashioned with a small wash basin situated outside the bathroom in a cramped area with little space to put toiletries. The furniture seemed somewhat 'tired' too. Our room was situated on the pool side of the hotel and we were kept awake by pool users until quite late as... More

We get to the desert multiple times during the year. This time, we wanted to dispense with one of our go-to hotels as it has declined in recent years. We found the HHI to be clean, pleasant and a good base for our stay. The pool was pristine and warm and the area surrounding it had plenty of lounges along... More

I stayed here twice, and had excellent customer service both times. The manager and the front desk women Gabby and the others were very helpful. The rooms included a fridge and microwave, which was great to have with the coffee maker. Rooms had a nice balcony. The bathroom counter area is very small, but still functional. The location is very... More

Had a great experience at this hotel. Staff was friendly, room was cool and quite and the pool was nice. I also love the hot breakfast that Holiday Inn's now offer. The bed was also very comfortable and I had a good nights sleep. It was also walking distance to several restaurants for a nice choice or eating.
