“Dingy rooms, outdated furniture and worn out carpet - enough said!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

We stayed one(1) night at the Holiday Inn Express(5760 Polaris Ave) in Las Vegas and needless to say this will be the last stay at this hotel ever.
The rooms were dingy, there wasn't sufficient lightning in the rooms or hallway, found few bugs in our room and most of all the carpets looked dirty and the general decor was just poor.

For the price we paid, we were expecting much, much better rooms. The hotel is far away from the Strip and you'll need to take a cab or the hotel shuttle.

Overall, unless you can't find a room in Vegas, stay here otherwise, you have better alternatives.

Room Tip: Stay in the upper floors - this will keep the crawling bugs away.

Not bad, but walls were a little thin. Decor was decent and due to time restrictions, I was not able to utilize the pool or workout rooms. Staff was nice and would stay at in the future. Breakfast decent, as it had the typical Holiday Inn Express items, but they were a tad cold. Since I got to the eating area later in the morning, I was not counting on hot food or anything left, but was pleasantly suprised, so not complaining!

We stayed one night at this hotel on August 7. It is a great place to stay. The breakfast is wonderful. The rooms are very nice and the hotel was extremely clean. There are only 2 reasons I do not give it 5 stars. The first is that there was a fairly good amount of leafy debris in the pool along with numerous bugs which made swimming very unpleasant. The other reason is that they told us that they provide free shuttle service to the Mandelay Bay hotel. We had gone out to dinner and decided to come back to the hotel and take advantage of the free shuttle service rather than drive ourselves. Unfortunately they do not tell you that you are going to be dropped off at the Mandelay Bay Convention Center which is quite a long walk over to the casino area...approximately 10-15 minute walk through the convention center and then through the hotel which are connected. This would not have been a problem for us but we had other family members with us one of whom was unable to walk long distances. They were not able to walk that far and actually had to turn back and then wait for the next shuttle to take them back to the hotel. Had we known we were going to be dropped off so far away from the casino area we would have driven ourselves there and valet parked. Other than those two things this is an excellent hotel and very close to the airport. I highly recommend it if you do not care about the pool and do not plan to use the free shuttle to get to the Mandelay.

The first hotel I had in many years that the room did not smell cigarette smoke. I have a very bad reaction to cigarette smoke such as nose bleed, therefore, I have to make sure that the room is truly non-smoking not the one being sprayed on to get rid of the smell or smoke. I have been to different hotels from 3,4,5 and 5 and a half stars hotels. Most of them even the 5 stars caused me severe nose bleeds. I had stayed in Holiday inn before and was not happy in terms of smoke smell in the room. But this time, after a long drive, unexpectedly decided to rest in Las Vegas for a night. We had called several good hotels in the area but none that can accommodate 5 people in one room except this Holiday Inn. Wow..to my surprise as soon as I walked in the room, it feels and smells like my own room at home. First time in a very long time woke up in a hotel room with no nose bleed. Instead a feeling of freshness and energized ready to tackle my day...Thank you Holiday inn. Oh...they also have complimentary breakfast including eggs and bacon...I would pay more for this room next time.

We had a family emergency and needed a hotel in Vegas at 3AM. Front desk was able to get us a room. I usually stay at HI express and this one was much like the other ones. I did get a platnum upgrade and the room was nice. Hotel could use a better cleaning in my opinion but it was more than fine for our short stay. Staff was excellent and location off the strip is nice. Wife is unable to wak the long dstances that the big casinos demand so this was a nice alternative. Parking was a breeze and getting in and out of the hotel parking lot was pretty easy. Location is very convienent. Air conditioner worked great but was noisy as heck, might be time for the hotel to upgrade to some newer quieter units. But it worked well and that is what really matters in Vegas.

Room Tip: If view matters to you get a view towards the front of the hotel, the back view is deadly boring.

1st off, no resort fees! Free shuttle to the strip. Free Breakfast. My room was fresh and clean. We had no problems. The pool and jaccuzi were great and the laundry facility was very clean. Great location away from the strip

Room Tip: Save money and eat the free breakfast...very good

I have stayed at many Holiday Inn Expresses throughout the country and this hotel charges for things that are standard in most other locations. Charging $15 per night for microwaves or mini fridges seems a bit pricey. I felt like just because we were in Vegas they felt it was ok to nickel and dime people to death. Usually the breakfast menu rotates a bit, but throughout the entire week we stayed it was exactly the same. The pool was pretty dirty and didn't really smell like it had chlorine in it, but in their defense someone came in the pool area to work on it while we were there.

That being said, the staff is very friendly. It's a very convenient location off the strip. We had a great view of the strip from out room. It was great to look out the window and see all the lights. The laundry room was conveniently located on our floor and I was impressed with how well the dryers worked. Usually, the clothes aren't completely dried. I also liked the flyers that the restaurants had put under our door all week. It was nice to see food delivery choices. Many of them we tried and they were wonderful. The bathrooms throughout the property were all very clean and well taken care of.

Room Tip: The A/C works VERY well. It's helpful to keep the fan running to circulate the air instead of m...
