Rude - ridiculous - Will never stay at this hotel again! From the front desk to breakfast staff & even housekeeping - all across the board - just awful customer service! Questions were met work snippy attitudes and comments, Etc. When my reservation was messed up it was stressed that I was lucky they weren't charging ME for THEIR mistake!!

Nice hotel conveniently located next to the interstate with a McDonalds across the street. The facility is a little dated but similar to other expresses. Front staff was very knowledgeable with the area with must see attractions.

Holiday Inn Express is our hotel of choice when we know what area of town we want to stay and using a discount hotel program may not put us in that area. We have stayed at this hotel before. Our room was actually pretty nice - had a desk, 2 chairs, refrigerator and microwave. It also had a full length...

I travel to Tucson monthly for work and this is the hotel I stay at in most instances. The quality of the hotel and the hotel staff meet and exceed expectations. Another reason I stay here is the quality of the beds. I almost sleep better here than at my bed back home! Also I don't write reviews quite often,...

This road-side hotel was perfect for my quick overnight trip to Tucson. It was affordable, clean, spacious, and the free breakfast hit the spot. I love hotels with free wifi, strong water pressure, and of course, clean and safe. The front desk was very friendly.

We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your overnight stay with us. We are a jump, hop and skip away from the I-10. Not to mention walking distance from varies restaurants and grocery stores. It is our hope that you chose us again when visiting Tucson again. Safe journey.

Great location from which to visit Sonoran Desert Museum, Saguaro National Park and Biosphere 2. Just off Interstate 10, and good restaurants are within easy walking distance of the hotel. Free breakfast, internet and happy hour.

Typical Holiday Inn Express with the usual amenities....breakfast, refrig & microwave in room, etc.. Clean, but with a couple of maintenance/housekeeping problems. Hallway carpets on 3rd floor needed cleaning badly, bathroom counter had huge chip out it and had been badly repaired, and bathroom vent fan was extremely noisy. I expected better from this chain.

I've stayed at many Holiday Inn Expresses, but this one is below par in comparison to the others I've been to. It's a little run down and poorly designed.
