“Great location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

These days we love Holiday Inn's, the nice rooms....those cinnamon buns etc......but this one.....not so much. This location was outdated, and no buns.....and the long distance phone charges were very very very expensive......if you can email from your computer or use the one in the lobby.
The desk clerk was very friendly and the room was clean. This was our third trip to the Grand Canyon and our first stay at the Holiday Inn. Staying close to the Grand Canyon, I suppose the hotels don't need to remodel given the demand for the rooms as they are. In the end it didn't really matter, we were there to be at the Grand Canyon, but we won't be back to this hotel on our next trip in a couple of years.

This hotel was a great value. We wanted to be close to the canyon for convenience of our 1 day trip and found this hotel offering a great rate. Check in was quick and we were given an upgrade easily with our priorityclub status. We ended up with a family room that was so well laid out I wish we had a longer time to enjoy it. Though the room was tired in places, it was comfortable and clean. Breakfast in the morning was the average and adequate continental breakfast at most hotels of truism sort. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Yes a very nice room, we came here not knowing the area. Good breakfast in the morning. Very helpful staff. Would stay here next time. Nothing to do with HIE, if you r going to eat in the town, it is very pricey, so keep that in mind

It was our first family trip to the grand canyon national park and we wanted to stay close and minimize the commute since we planned multiple day trips to the canyon. we found this hotel in a quaint town not far from the national park (about 6-7 miles) which was great. We tried to book a hotel in the park but that was too expensive and not booked out.

Tusayan is a very small town of a few places to eat, a few restaurants, and a few other shops very close to the Grand Canyon National Park. Location was the main attraction for this hotel. The check in process was smooth and friendly. The room was average ammenties and cleanliness for the location. It had good space as well. There was internet but we were on a high floor and it was too hard to pick up reception in this huge hotel. That was one of my criticisms.

Breakfast was good - typical of a holiday inn express (yummy Cinnamon Rolls). Bottom line - good hotel due to location and price and ammenties including breakfast which is very important in a small, quaint town with very few options. I would recommend this hotel to any traveller who comes to the Canyon.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the elevators. Choose a room close to the main level if possible to get b...

The Holiday Inn Express at is one of a handful of hotels in Tusayan that offer great access to the South rim of the Grand Canyon. The setting is spectacular. We stayed 2 days in July, 2012. While the rates were a bit high, they were competitive with the other accomodations in Tusayan. A decent breakfast was included in the hotel fee. We stayed in one of the king suites which were located in a seperate building from the main desk and hotel. It was a great space with amenities that would allow for an extended stay. Our only issue was that the beds were very soft...not really to our liking...but we were comfortable none the less.

This was my first trip to the Grand Canyon! This hotel is Less then 10 min away. I was very happy during my stay, the customer service was great and they're breakfast was very good. The rooms were clean. The pool was not that big but it was heated. Definitely will stay there again.

Stayed in the King mini suite for 2 nights which was located in a different building away from the main busy building, which I was thankful for because it seemed more quiet than the hussle and bussle in the main building. However the pool is a ways away in the main building, but there was a hot tub (jets not powerful at all) in the suites building which felt great after a very chilly day in the Grand Canyon. This buiding also had it's own breakfast lobby as well with cheese omlets, bacon, biscuits & gravy, cereal, a simple and quick pancake maker that does all the work for you and makes as many pancakes as you want, yogurt, juices and more. The wetbar was perfect for what I needed it for (a sink with a counter) since we brought our slow cooker to cook dinner in. I found the bed to be very comfortable, camparable to our bed at home, and it was nice to unwind on the sofa watching tv after a long day of driving.
I'm happy with our choice and will stay here again if we ever return due to it's proximity to the South Rim. I debated on staying further away not in Tusayan to save a little cash but after road tripping in from the north and out to the south, I'm glad we didn't stay further away because everywhere else really is quite a drive in.
