I've stayed at this Holiday Inn Express a couple times in the past, going back to 2002.
The rooms have the newer soft beds and bedding, which I find quite comfortable. The shower has excellent water pressure and a big shower head.
This can be a noisier hotel. Be sure to ask for an upstairs room on the side facing Navajo Blvd., not the freeway. Even with that request met, you'll hear noises through quite thin walls. I solve this problem with "flents", very effective and comfortable ear plugs.
One quirk about this hotel is the access to the 2nd floor. No elevator, and the stairs are all the way back on one end of the hotel (near the lobby). This causes extra steps that aren't usually needed in other modern hotels.
The lobby and eating areas are nicely lit and decorated with Kachina dolls as well as petrified wood and other regional items. This gives this Holiday Inn Express a distinct southwestern look and feel, which is nice.
Be sure to go to dinner at Mesa Italiano, about a mile east on Navajo Blvd. on the right side. It's a nice family italian restaurant that the front desk recomended, and it's well worth it. If you go, stop by next door at the Mercantile gift shop. An interesting 70 year-old man named Tom is there to bargain with you for "museum grade" petrified wood at wholesale prices. We bought one from him, and compared his prices to nearby trading posts the next day. He indeed offered a bargain, and is quite a character who claims to have personally worked on petrified wood since the age of 5, as his ancestors did back in the 1880's. Quite a storyteller!
