Even though the refurbishment is in progress, staff and management were extremely careful that it had minimum impact on customers. Our room had already been upgraded with new everything. The bed was very comfortable and there was plenty of space in the room for bags etc. Would definitely recommend staying here.

We used my IHG points to stay at this hotel. All in all it was a clean hotel with a wonderful breakfast. The building is obviously tired, but is in the midst of remodeling - one can only imagine how much nicer it will be when finished. Hotel has a pool that is half indoor and half outdoor - my daughter liked the idea. We only had one small waste basket and the WIFI kept dropping connection, but these are relatively minor items. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: The views from the North side are a bit nicer.

These past 3 weeks I stayed in HI Express hotels in Page AZ, Cortez CO, Santa Fe NM and Flagstaff AZ and I noticed a lot of similarities. In every hotel the size of the room was generous, but there were no wardrobes. A 3-drawer cabinet is not nearly enough for your holiday luggage and you are forced to keep most of it in your suitcase.
In general everything in the room was in working order and well maintained. Sufficient wall plugs to charge your phones, tablets, cameras etc, all at the same time. The beds are very comfortable.
The breakfast facilities were similar in all hotels and the offered ranges were identical. A typical American obese breakfast with pancakes, syrup and jelly, eggs and fried sausages, donuts, glazed cinnamon buns, muffins, stale bread for toasting, cereals and concentrate juices diluted with too much water. More than you will find in the average motel, but nothing for me. I took the only sensible products I could find like skimmed milk, low fat yoghurt and fruit, and bought the rest in the supermarket. It didn’t bother me but the service in the breakfast area was inadequate and unacceptable. Every day many items were not replenished for a longer period of time.
As a platinum member I am entitled to an upgrade but this particular hotel did not have any.
The location of this hotel is ideal for tours in the area. There are plenty of decent restaurants in the historic old town, but parking may be difficult.
The ‘high-speed’ internet is not stable but ok with off peak speeds of 350Kb down and 70Kb up.
Refurbishing is overdue but there is work in progress. At this moment the prices are too high for what is offered an I would recommend this hotel only off season.

This hotel is currently undergoing renovations, and we were assured from the moment we made our reservations that this would not impact our stay. Apparently Holiday Inn Express' view of 'no impact' is very different than mine. We visited for a softball tournament, and had we not been required to stay at this particular hotel in agreement with the tournament, we would have found somewhere else to stay.

There is currently no access to the front driveway, which definitely impacted our stay (and ability to get to the front door and unload our belongings) and the whole place looks rundown. The elevators are slow and dark with paint chipping, and there do not appear to be stairs available for when you don't want to wait for the elevator. (isn't that the law? I thought it was. I could be wrong, I just thought it was a requirement.)

Rooms are in need of work. They've recently had newer carpeting, and furnishings are ok, but our toilet seat in the bathroom was chipped and had questionable stains on it throughout our stay. Our tub had a slow drain, so it filled as anyone took a shower. Doorjambs are bent, or broken, and housekeeping service seemed cursory at best.

Yes, there is a free breakfast, but it's mainly white bread products, scrambled egg patties (???) and sugared yogurt. I understand you get what you pay for, but for $170/night, I expect a bit more.

I gave two stars because the service was pretty good, and there were some nice touches like cookies out in the afternoon and iced citrus water available. Just very frustrated that I paid the amount I paid for very little in return.

Dear Vegrunner from Albuquerque, NM,

Thank you for choosing our hotel while visiting the Northern Arizona for your softball tournament. We strive to deliver a positive memorable stay for all guests and it is apparent we fell short during your stay. I would like to apologize about the issues that you experienced during your stay. While we are excited about the changes that are due to come with our renovation, I am disappointed to hear that you suffered inconveniences when trying to use the front entrance to the hotel. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed the service and got to take advantage of the cookies and citrus water we set out for those checking in.

I do hope that you will allow us the opportunity to be of service when you visit the area again. B

Old hotel that is getting a poor remodeling job. Staying in a remodeled room with mold on bathroom ceiling and window screen s are torn. No microwave in room. One washer and dryer for the hotel. Staff is nice. I would recommend that you find a better place to stay that is cheaper.

The night before our start of a rafting trip through the Grand Canyon, we stayed at the Flagstaff Holiday Inn Express. We appreciated the comfortable bed, the frig, the clean accommodations, the excellent breakfast buffet, and the citrus water and cookies upon arrival. We were well-cared for. We were temporarily confounded by the new heating/cooling element, but a visit from a staff member cleared up our confusion. Thanks for the service!

We are traveling from Upstate NY to Southern California and have stayed at various hotels across the country. This one was the absolute BEST on all fronts. Excellent service. Rooms were immaculately clean, beds/pillows the most comfortable. We had an issue with the fridge that was immediately taken care of. Breakfast was an amazing assortment of yogurts, cereals, milks, juices, muffins, pancakes as well as eggs, sausage, biscuits, gravy. We really enjoyed the more natural selections that were offered instead of just one or two things. The pool area was also very clean and enjoyed by our children.
