My sister and I had to go to Show Low to close up our other sister's summer home. She had been seriously injured and could not do it herself. She recommended one of the other hotels but, based on the Trip Advisor reviews, I decided to stay at the Holiday Inn Express. That was an excellent decision.
We drove up from Tucson and checked into the hotel and then went on over to close up the house. After a very strenuous day we were ready to relax. The room was large and the beds were comfortable. The next morning we had breakfast and checked out.
We went back to finish packing up the house and closing it for the winter. It was about 2 PM before we finished and we were just too tired to drive all the way back to Tucson. We returned to the Holiday Inn Express hoping they would have a room for us.
The manager, Chad, was more than gracious. He signed us up quickly and even gave us an upgrade. We were so grateful. It had been such a long and tiring two days. We went up to the room and just relaxed in comfort. He gave us each a goodie bag and that just hit the spot.
The next morning was less stressful. We watched Chad supervise the dining area, fix the pancake maker, and check out lots of people. He was really busy but had a smile on his face and friendly comments for everyone.
You can be sure we will be staying at this hotel every time we go to Show Low. I highly recommend it.
