Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dvdby Very enjoyable
My wife and I took a min-vacation to Glendale to catch the Blackhawk-Coyotes NHL game. We were very happy with everything the hotel offered. Great thing is the walking distance of the hotel to the Westgate Center, which is where Jobing.com Arena is located as well as Outlet mall and restaurants.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NeedQuietLounge Great Hotel - Bad Hotel Policy
I wish I could give this hotel 5-Stars, because it's deserving of it. The facilities, room comfort, and cleanliness of this hotel is what every hotel should be like! HOWEVER..., the hotel has a policy that makes an otherwise great experience one of being less than desirable... To not disturb my wife while I needed to spend about six hours of study time, I headed down to the lounge off of the lobby. Unfortunately, the hotel music playing on the first floor was obnoxious and LOUD to the point where it was difficult to concentrate. There was another couple trying to carry on a conversation, but complained and left due to the loud music playing. I asked the desk clerk if he could turn off or turn down the music, but he said he was unable to do so due to hotel management policy. Around midnight, I took a break from studying to watch some of the Olympic opening ceremonies post-program on the lounge TV... The desk clerk had the nerve to ask me to turn the sound down. I could barely hear the TV over the hotel music! I continued to study until 3:30 AM, but was disturbed several times by four friends of the desk clerk that kept coming in and out of the hotel, talking loudly in the lounge. At checkout the next day, the music was much lower and the desk clerk apologized for the inconvenience. She said they have had several complaints about the music, but said it's Hotel Management Policy that music is always playing. Apparently, the staff gets poor marks if the Holiday Inn Express "Quality Manager" makes a visit and the music is too low or turned off! Too bad that management is more interested in their Policy than the ability of their guests to relax... I would love the opportunity to educate the hotel Quality Manager on what a customer oriented policy is vs a company oriented policy! So,if you don't need the lounge area then this is a five star hotel for you..., but if you need to relax (or study) in a quiet lounge..., it's not available. Oh, and keep the lounge TV volume to an absolute minimum!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Strike96 Excellent Staff
Extremely friendly, courteous, and professional staff. Front Desk Clerk (Joe), and the General Manager (Oscar) stood out as very professional.
I had a Non-smoking King Executive Room, however there was no refrigerator or microwave. First Holiday Inn Express I have stayed at without.
Wireless in room was very sporadic, however was fine in the Lobby Area.
I highly recommend this hotel if staying in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JimWes62 Good place to unwind
After a long drive in cold weather from the Midwest this was a perfect place to spend a couple of nights and unwind. The front desk staff was caring, knowledgeable, and helpful. Housekeeping was friendly and efficient. The man working the breakfast area had everything under control all of the time. I did not see a manager but he or she must have been doing their job in the background.
The outdoor pool was one of the best that I have seen at a HI Express with grills and a fire pit.

First of all they upgraded my room because they did not have what I originally requested. Never expected that! The staff was outstanding! During my stay I had a flat tire. I was also attending meetings at the Civic Center. I was extremely grateful for their assistance.

The location of the motel is in a convenient location, close to most everything my visit was for.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
Only two small complaints.
First the pillows were not comfortable at all.
Also a larger safety deposit box for our belongings would have been better.

great area and hotel the only issue was dirty sheets and having to change them out myself. I recommend a more diligent housekeeping staff common areas and to the naked eye everything was clean, but attention to detail is key. Great stay but Pull the covers back and check the sheets.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by sunni1201 Not impressed
When I booked the hotel I did it using points. We are platinum members but really weren't treated as one at this location. After I booked the room online I called the hotel to make sure we could get an upgrade. When I arrived at the hotel I got to my room I realized it was a standard room. I called the front desk and was told that there were no upgrades available for IVANI. Which is a guest who pays with points. I was told that I could upgrade for a fee. We stayed two night and used our points that were earned by paying for suites. When I use points I expect the same room type that I have paid for in past stays. To insinuate that the room is free is wrong. It was not free, I earned it by staying at IHG properties. We haven't stayed for a while and I don't think we will be staying again. At least not at this property

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nomadace Great stay at Glendale Holiday Inn
We recently stayed 4 nights here and we were impressed from the start. Oscar helped us with the check in and was very knowledgable. He even showed us the room before we committed to the stay. The room was spacious, clean,and organized. The entire staff was very friendly. They acknowledged us each time we left the hotel and again when we returned. Very pleasurable stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sonchar stayed to see the Cardinals
We had tickets to the Cardinals game finishing a few days business in Phoenix. We were staying in Tempe but since the game was in Glendale we found the Holiday Inn Express there was within walking distance of the stadium. Come Sunday morning Xavier lived up to what was told us on the phone that we could leave our car in the hotel parking lot and walk to the game without having to stay Sunday night. That saved us a parking fee at the stadium and some traffic headaches trying to leave the area.
This was very nice of the hotel to allow this and we would go back based on that type of courtesy alone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jerswife Great Room after a night of fun
I recently stayed at this property to see a concert in town. It had a great front desk staff to check in with, followed up by very well maintained common areas (I wish I had the time to take a dip in the outdoor pool or hut tub!) The room was very clean and well maintained. As a housekeeper, the first thing I look at when I get in the room is the bathroom spotless, and dust build up in the room. Both met my satisfaction! The continental breakfast was your typical continental breakfast, some great options. However, the breakfast attendant seemed a bit grumpy.

This was a very comfortable hotel. Safe location. Easy access on and off the freeway. LOTS of shopping and restaurants in walking distance. Hotel is modern, well-kept, and comfortable. Room was the same. Bed was very comfortable, and I am picky about my bed! Recommend staying here!

No major problems.....place has seen some years and no extra amenities or a room upgrade available for Platinum Elite status, but since it was a football weekend and the place was completely full, we were happy to be there.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Haijay Good Hot Complementary Breakfast, Clean Room, Nice Pool
My husband and I and our two daughters stayed here Nov.17-19 while we were in town for a Pearl Jam concert. The room was very clean, the beds were cofortable the only noise we heard was on our last morning, some loud man voices, not sure if it was from another room or in the hall. The free breakfast came in handy and it wasn't just your typical cereal and toast. One morning we had pancakes and sausage patties on a toasted english muffins (breakfast sanwiches), another morning there was eggs and a ton of bacon, every morning there was biscuits and this gravy looking stuff as well as fruit, bagels, warm cinnamon buns, toast, cereal, coffee, tea, juice, milk, hot chocolate.... can't complain. The pool was awesome, perfect temp as it is heated, hot tub was wondeful and then in the evening we would go sit around the fire pit that was also by the pool. The staff was helpful and friendly, always acknowledged you as you walked in or out with a hello and a friendly smile. The only advice I have is if you are heading over to the entertainment district go the back way, we headed out and went in front of Cabella's and down the main drag and it took way longer, go behind. Also the closest place to buy liquor was at least a 25-30 minute walk in the heat, take a cab to the AM/MP it cost 5 bucks each way.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nascargirl Comfortable bed, clean room, convenient location
Very enjoyable stay. Room was very comfortable, bathroom was roomy, entire facility was very clean. Breakfast options each morning were plenty. Location was convenient - across street from Cabelas, close to Phoenix Raceway, many restaurant and shopping options very close. Will plan on returning in the future. Nothing but good things to say about this property.
