Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Groundhaug Night in Phx
While most other hotels were taking advantage of guests as most rooms were booked for MLB spring training, this location offered a very reasonable rate. I was very pleased with the room, breakfast and the stay in general. The road to the hotel, which leads behind Cracker Barrel is a little confusing, otherwise this property provides for an excellent stay.

Had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The outdoor pool was a very unexpected luxury. Room and hotel is well maintained and the staff are very friendly. We felt right at home and would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Not a good nights sleep due to the air conditioner being noisy
Whenever the air conditioner turned on it woke us up. It turned on several times a night.
Did not use the pool because it was usually full of kids due to the hockey teams that were staying.
When showering the faucet rumbled and made a loud noise.
When asked front desk why rates were different on our bill she said because we are full.
We used Holiday Inn Express throughout our 6 night stay, 4 of those nights at your motel, and the rates on our last two nights were the highest. We did not ask for clean sheets so that stayed the same. Asked if we could use our points and she said no you already made the reservation. The customer service left alot to be desired.
Will we stay again? Yes because we normally get a better rate when we stay at a Holiday Inn Express.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Severely disappointed Terrible internet and nonexistent HD TV
Internet was beyond slow.
HD TV didn't work at all and there were no non-HD channel equivalents.
Staff did not seen overly concerned because there was nothing they could do about it. This leads me to believe this a continuous problem, which makes me wonder why management hasn't fixed it.
I will never ever come back. Will drive the extra 10 miles to avoid this dump.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderland Alice What a waste of accumulated points!
We stayed in room 302. The hall carpets were very dirty, the room needs to be improved (old fixtures, etc) , the bed was uncomfortable and the air circulation made it either too hot or too cold. The breakfast was barely adequate but there was a variety of the usual foods.
I have stayed at other Holiday Inn Express hotels that were much more presentable and am sorry we happened to be at an event nearby and did not fully examine the age of this one.
It will not be a plae we would willingly stay again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AirAir Fairly enjoyable, but the swimming pool was a bit cool
We have stayed at this hotel before & we found it very much to our liking. Unfortunately on this occasion we had a couple of negative experiences, one was the pool being extremely cold & the other was the fire alarm activating at mid-night. These two incidents soured the stay. However the staff certainly made up for these short falls, by sending a maintenance man straight away to investigate why the pool was so cold & being really professional when handling the emergency situation. If it hadn't been for these two negative points then the stay would have been just fine. If & when we are in the area we will still use this hotel as it cetainly fits our needs.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by TomR51 Rundown Bathroom, Dirty Hotel
The bathroom in our room was beat up and in need of an overhaul. Poor drainage in sink and shower. Shower stained and old. Shower controls not working properly and tricky to operate. Overall the hotel is worn, stained and a bit dirty. This hotel was not what I feel I have come to expect from HI Express.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Corp Design Director Good service the rest needs to improve
Hotel staff are knowledgable and represent the brand very well. They deserve to have a franchisee that has more operational awareness about his/her property. The mattresses however are almost the worst I have slept on. The top sheet had stains. The bathroom is in dire need of a complete renovation. Poor workmanship is apparent around every corner. Maintenance staff shouldn't be doing the renovations! You can tell this is happening in the guest room bathrooms.
IHG should be a little more cognizant about the quality of the end product that ALL properties are delivering. I have some ideas!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BobbyJ7552 Phoenix/Chandler (Ahwatukee) Review
Stayed at this hotel so we could be close to shopping, checked in and were given a room key to an already occupied room, the people in this room were were not so happy and neither were we.
Had the front desk issue a new key, room was not the cleanest i have ever been in, bed was hard and lumpy.
Overall the hotel was very dated and dirty
Will not repeat!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Candice7289 Comfortable room and beds but noisy hallways
I loved the beds they were so comfortable!! The nice staff and the free cookies were excellent but, when getting coffee the dispensers were always empty and they wouldn't refill them. Also, the lobby breakfast area was always busy and noisy even when they weren't serving breakfast. Lastly, the wifi didn't seem to work at all for me and this was very important since I take online classes and it was very important for me to log into my classes.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by akaLinda Freeway Noise/Great Staff
It's too bad that all the rooms with 2 beds are on the freeway side, making it very difficult to sleep at night. It sounded like the freeway was roaring through our room. All the rooms with 1 king bed are on the quieter side so that did not leave us any option even when the hotel was not full. The hotel itself was very nice, clean and the staff was very friendly and sympathetic to our situation. We heard that this is a common complaint. Because of this problem I will be leery of staying at another Holiday Inn Express which is unfortunate.

The hotel was very clean and the front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The morning breakfast was pretty standard but there was a nice sitting area outside by the pool which made it a little more enjoyable. The area has lots of shopping and dining options.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SleeplessinAhwatukee No A/C + Ear Plugs = Awful Stay
Could possibly be the most "unique" experience I've ever had at an HI Express.
Hotel sits right on I-10 with half of the rooms exposed to very loud highway traffic. Thought I'd drown out the noise by running the fan on the A/C all night but could not...the unit was broken. Asked to be moved to another room which was not exposed to the interstate but could not due to high occupancy. Only a few rooms were vacant. I asked if I could then be moved to one of the other vacant rooms (assuming that the A/C units might work) but found that the remaining rooms also had A/C issues. So what was the resolution? Maintenance came to my room to show me that if you remove the A/C cover and keep this little component of the unit warm, the fan will continuously blow. Was also provided some earplugs to assist with the noise level. I should have checked out of the hotel at that point but I did not. Instead I decided to heat a face cloth with a blow dryer, wrap this little AC component in it, and covered it with pillows to keep the A/C unit working. Worked for about an hour and then was woken up to the sound of semi's driving by. Needless to say...it was a long two nights. Of course I notified the staff on duty (who by the way were great and the only reason I gave this a two star rating). They were very apologetic and offered to have the property manager call me when he/she arrived at work and assured me that he/she would "take care" of me for all that went wrong. It has been five days since I checked out and I have yet to receive a call.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Inkjetace Broken Elevator and Ice Machine - Needs Maintenance/Upkeep
One of two elevators and the second floor Ice Maker were broken for my entire five day four night stay. Rear access door would only accept my room key for access twice which forced me to walk around to the front entrance and take the one elevator that was working to my floor. Good for the extra exercise, but bad for time management. This HI Express was not keeping up with others that I have visited this year.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SLC2 Comfortable bed and room
The location of the hotel was excellent for needs. The room size and comfort of the bed was great. Our room, however, was on the freeway side of the hotel and we could hear highway noise all night. I would recommend asking for a room NOT on the freeway side so you can sleep.

I really enjoyed staying in Holiday Inn Express. I like their service.
Their complimentary b'fast was really good. Had lot of food options, even though it was complimentary. Also, the attendant 'Maria' in b'fast area, was very friendly and took care of all the cleanliness.
They also clean the rooms/bathrooms on daily basis and change the towels daily.
Overall, nice stay. Would recommend others to stay there.
