Stay at a lot of places in recent months. This not too much better or worse. Generally in middle. Staff in my opinion is not up to Holiday Inn Express standards. Justin, perhaps the exception. Rest seemed to be putting in their time. Room was O.K. no complaints here. The breakfast not open until to 7:00AM. I have to be... More

Hotel is close to ASU. A little far to walk to Mill Ave or other side of ASU campus in the summer heat, but they offer a free shuttle to drive you. They also offer shuttle service to and from the airport, which was very nice and convenient. The hotel is a little old and worn, but was clean and... More

Hotel close to a lot of restaurants and shopping. The breakfast buffet had a nice selection. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The employee were ok. The gym is a little small, but had the necessities.

I recently helped move my son to Phoenix and wanted to find a Holiday Inn Express (platinum member) near his place for when I visit. I arrived after midnight and was given an upgrade to a suite. When I walked into Rm 222, it smelled like a gym locker. I was so tired from moving and an 8 hour drive,... More

Had a lovely stay for 3 nights in this Holiday Inn. Rooms were spacious, clean and the lobby and the lobby staff were exceptional. Great place to hang out and relax. Very close to downtown Tempe....good to walk through ASU's beautiful campus to Mill avenue. Recommend highly.

Stayed here for a quick overnight on a one day business trip. Rooms were nice. AC was a little noisy but fine. I'm not a fan of the bathroom sink not being in the bathroom though. I had a two room suite. But it was just one long room with 2 queen beds and then a sofa and coffee table.... More

Upon arrival we were greeted and assisted by Jacquelyn, who was friendly and helpful. The room was extremely clean with comfortable beds. The location couldn't be better, right off freeway and walking distance to mall and restaurants. Evening time perfect hot tub for relaxing. I would highly recommend this hotel and enjoyed visiting with my family here.
