Make no mistake--you are staying here because of the close proximity to the south rim of the Grand Canyon. The rooms were very basic and definitely did not have luxurious appointments. However, they were clean and we felt safe. The night before we had stayed at a five star hotel casino in Vegas for the same price, so I think that stark contrast contributed to our ho-hum opinion of the Holiday Inn Express.
Don't count on arriving late and having a lot of dining choices. The nearby Wendy's closed at 8 pm. The McDonalds near the hotel was one of our only choices. It was totally overpriced--items that are $1 at most other McDonalds were $2.99 at this location. Basically, everything cost more than it should just because of the location. You are a captive audience, though. There are no other services for about 50 miles.
Breakfast at the Holiday Inn Express was okay. Nothing fancy, but we didn't leave hungry.
We didn't use any other amenities at the hotel. For a basic stay near the Grand Canyon, this will get the job done, but it's overpriced for what it is.
