4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Stayed for 5 nights. Room dated - carpet really needs to go. But rooms and bathrooms very clean. Bed comfortable. Internet speed was decent. Breakfast was good. Small pool perfect for quick dip to cool off. About five miles to square. I'd stay again.

The desk service at check-in was fantastic including fresh cookies! We were satisfied with the room even though it showed its age and the door rattled whenever anyone else closed their doors. Most notable was the disapointing TINY bath with VERY small counter space and stiff thin towels. Overall eminded me of the "Leave the light on for you" place!... More

We needed a last minute place to stay while traveling through town and Got this hotel through Hotwire. Thank goodness it was a good price, because the room was smaller than we expected and the hotel older. The front desk staff was welcoming and the breakfast good (pancake machine not working). I just expected more from a Holiday Inn with... More

This is my first time staying here and I will definitely do it again. The service at the front desk has been great and the continental breakfast is very good (lots to choose from). The only reason I did not rate it a 5 is because the air conditioner in the room doesn't seem to work so well. That could... More

These past 3 weeks I stayed in HI Express hotels in Page AZ, Cortez CO, Santa Fe NM and Flagstaff AZ and I noticed a lot of similarities. In every hotel the size of the room was generous, but there were no wardrobes. A 3-drawer cabinet is not nearly enough for your holiday luggage and you are forced to keep... More

HIE is usually always excellent. We make it a point to find one wherever we find ourselves if we are staying overnight. They are clean, usually quiet, and consistent. The Hot Breakfast is to our liking and we find that we save more money and time by paying a bit more and having the hotel have a hot breakfast, verses... More

We booked this room based on our experience at a wonderful Holiday Inn Express in Yukon, OK, AND the comments in "Hotel Amenities" stating that rooms in this HIE had been recently renovated. Really??? Firstly, I do have to say, the staff was very friendly and accomodating. Larry helped us with an early check-in after we arrived much earlier than... More

This older but somewhat renovated hotel has a good location that is easy to locate after a long day, and the staff is welcoming. The rooms are small but clean. The tiny bathrooms do have the newer large rectangular floor tiles. We had a peculiar TV, apparently an older model flat screen, and only got static until a staff member... More
