“Very Pleasantly Surprised”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

Great location just outside south entrance to park. Recently upgraded rooms (at least in rear building). Excellent staff that repeatedly worked to meet all expectations. All at a very budget-friendly cost. It will be my hotel of choice on next visit!

Stayed March 2013, traveled as a couple

Our room was average - nothing remarkable, a little rundown, but more or less comfortable. The front office staff were very helpful with giving us information on visiting the Grand Canyon. The breakfast in the hotel is very good. The hotel is very conveniently located - it is about a 5 minute drive to the national park entrance, and about another 10 minutes to get to the visitor centre.

This hotel seems to be existing on location alone. The rooms are small, sparsely equipped, and lacking Internet connectivity (though they advertise free wi-fi). They overcharged us from the agreed upon rate, though they did refund the difference when we noticed it. Can't recommend this one. Breakfast room was extremely over crowded.

Looked at best western & was deterred that it was a little more expensive & it was having serious Internet connections. We found the HI express to be a standard hotel...with no frills but basic standard, clean accommodation. The one negative was the paper thin walls where we could hear the muffled conversation & tv of our neighbors.

My parting tip is to have dinner at Coronado restaurant at the Best Western...the menu was surprisingly tasty & fresh!

In my opinion, with the nearby lodges in the park, this Holiday Inn must have felt it did not need to try too hard. The rooms were pretty basic, not a lot of room, no fridge or micro, and poor internet. TV had just a handful of channels, and the bathroom was small. Overall our stay was comfortable enough, and the staff were friendly, helpful, and ambitious. The breakfast in the morning was excellent, and the attendant on duty was working hard to keep it that way with the large number of guests there at that point in time. Overall a good place to stay, but I will try somewhere else If I pass through again.

Room Tip: There is a newer outbuilding likely open in the Summer. Might be worth inquiring about.

This is typical and very good HIExpress where we have stayed durin our GC exploration. Perfect location, great mini-suite. Very loud, anyway, you are in Express. Alnmost no internet connection because of the issues in the town.
