I stayed at the Holiday Inn Fountain Hills last week for three nights. I had stayed here several years ago, but was hesitant to book again due to recent reviews. Honestly, I thought it was fine. The hotel provides what I expect from a 3-star hotel, albeit one that is starting to show some wear and tear.
My room was fine. Yes, the carpets in the room and hallways are showing some stains and wear, but they seemed clean. They had patched the hallway on the 2nd floor, and looked as if they were getting ready to paint. I did not notice any odors in the hallway or my room. I found the hotel staff to be friendly and helpful. The pool area is always quiet, with a great view of the fountain. Any issues the hotel has are more than offset by the best location in Fountain Hills, as the hotel is just across the street from the fountain and 1/2 block from downtown (Ave of the Fountains). I would stay again.More
