Typical Holiday Inn Express, in that the rooms are clean and comfortable, the breakfast is predictably good for the most part and the staff is helpful and friendly. I enjoyed my stay albeit short because I got checked in right away (and very early in the day!), I slept well, and was comfortable throughout my stay. I did not use... More

When I entered this Holiday Inn Express, I presumed it was brand new -- only to be informed that it is 15 years old. They have done an impressive job keeping the place looking fresh. The front desk manager was extremely friendly and accommodating and I received an outstanding rate and an excellent huge room with separate seating area and... More

We stayed here overnight twice on a roadtrip, once outbound and once on the way back. The first room we had was sunny and clean and comfortable - maybe a bit worn in the bathroom corners. The 2nd room (123, I think) we got was in a dark corner. The bathroom was patched and a bit tired looking, but clean... More

Thank you for sharing your review of your recent review of you stay with us. It is unfortunate you find the $20 authorization for incidentals is inconvenient. It is company policy and is something that we do for all guests staying at our hotel. It is unfortunate you found the front desk agent who checked you out of the hotel... More

This is the second time we stayed here. This time we booked through Priceline and didn't experience any bias. The people at check in were very friendly and quick. We had a few questions about getting around and they happily answered our questions. Our room was spacious and super clean (as were the hallways and public areas). Breakfast was good... More

Great pool and jacuzzi with mountain views, and beautiful palm trees on premises. Rooms were clean, breakfast plentiful, staff friendly and attentive. We stayed only one night but wished we could stay longer.

The rooms were decent size and quiet. We found housekeeping for our repeat stays to be excellent, rooms refreshed daily, trash removed, bath items replaced, etc. That said, our first room smelled damp; the second stay we were in another area and the room smelled fresh on the first day, but damp the second. This could be an HVAC problem.... More

This is about a 15 minute drive from downtown PS. The hotel feels spacious and is very clean. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet, especially the warm cinnamon rolls that Holiday Inn Express is known for. There is also a pancake machine that rolls out the pancakes.
