Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GeorgefromAZ Had a Great stay in the cool pines of northern AZ
As a frequent traveler for business and leisure, I can say I've stayed in my share of hotels and the Holiday Inn Express in Pinetop/Lakeside AZ has been one of the better ones.
Clean rooms and comfortable beds.
Friendly staff, especially the ladies Pita, Clarrissa and Catrese who take care of the breakfast bar. They were outstanding.
Common areas such as the lobby and lounge were clean and nicely decorated.
All secondary entry doors require card access and are monitored by CCTV which provides very good security of the guests.
The east side rooms facing the highway SR260 can be a little loud due to heavy traffic, especially when emergency vehicles are responding.
The black out drapes covering the windows required some "in field" modifications and ingenuity to block out excessive ambient light. Practices such as using paper binder clips to eliminate the gaps between the two halves of the drapes when they're drawn together and placing the sofa cushions against the wall to hold the outer edges of the drapes closer against the wall in order to reduce the gaps can work. These simple practices allowed the room to be dark enough especially when sleeping in late.
Overall our stay at this location was very pleasant and enjoyable. We will be looking forward to our next stay at this facility snuggled in the beautiful White Mountains of AZ.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AAH77 Love this Hotel
My family and I love this Hotel. We stay here every time we come up to Pinetop. My kids especially love the indoor pool. The reason I rated the bed/mattress poorly is because it is too hard for my back, but in all fairness, I have back issues. So, it may be fine for others.

This was a great spot, centrally located in Pinetop. The property was clean and fresh and the staff was wonderful. Our room was clean and the bed was wonderful. Just what we needed after a few nights in sleeping bags! The breakfast was great and the hotel staff were very attentive. We will definitely stay there again.

Pulled up to the property, very neat and clean. Checked in the staff was very courteous. Went to our room, received a call asking us if our room was to our satisfaction, good follow up. Breakfast was better than average hotel food, selection was very good. I have stayed here a few times and never been disappointed. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nosim Friendly team and a great location
From the moment we arrived, nothing was too much trouble for any member of staff. They were friendly, got to know us quickly and what we were doing each and genuinely interested if we were having a good time.
The General Manager was really helpful in helping us research our next destination at it wasn't on the map and regularity checked that our plan was coming together.
For Memorial Weekend, the staff were so attentive it was hard to imagine the hotel was fully booked.

Not a lot new to add here. This is a clean, functional hotel. Service is good, rooms are clean, breakfast is good, but basic. Other amenties are as you would expect -up to par with the industry. You could do far worse than this hotel

Our stay was really very nice. The people all seemed to go out of their way to help us. The recommendations for dinning were great suggestions and from them we discovered a really great restaurant that we had not known of before this visit. Thanks to everyone for treating us so well.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Troubles Bad bed and pillows
The rooms were clean, the breakfast was ok, and the hotel staff was friendly. However, the pillows were worn out and the bed wasn't very comfortable. We also had trouble regulating the sound on the television - sometimes it was loud - other times you could barely hear it. Sorry to experience this in a Holiday Inn Express.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MikeKat Nice hotel!
The gentleman at the front desk was very helpful. He recommended a couple of places to eat dinner. He even called one to find out if they were still open. We ended up at Red Devil Pizza and it turned out to be just as good if not better than the one on McDowell in Phoenix.

The property was clean and fresh. Loved the lounge with fireplace burning and the free fresh chocolate chip cookies. The rooms were spacious, warm and inviting. Wish we could have taken a dip in the heated pool which looked amazing from the windows on the second floor hallway. The breakfast was very tasty with an excellent variety of menu items. Finally, we were welcomed immediately when we arrived and treated with friendly courtesy! Loved our stay!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by tsptsp Awful Loud Building Music played in hallways-wakes you up early,11AM check out time-not a place to relax, electrical problems
Loud music plays in the mornings from speakers built into the ceiling of the hallways leading to the rooms. It woke us up on our Saturday morning stay. We first thought it was a maid playing loud music, but when we asked about it, we were told it was part of the building.stereo system.
The electrical power to the building shut off while our granddaughter was in the shower. An employee went to "check on the eggs cooking" and apologized that the she inadvertently took the power out when checking the appliance. Overload on the electrical system?
11AM checkout --When we asked for a late check out, we learned the check out time was at 11AM. Most hotels we stay at are 12-1PM with a late check out after 1PM. We had to leave by 12 pm even though we are a members of the rewards club.
A young woman with long dark hair was working in the dining room. She was great, friendly and very helpful. The front desk staff and other employees were very busy talking with each other (sitting on desk furniture) and did not bother to say good morning or even talk to us.
Beds were comfortable, but we did not have chance to sleep in. We attended a sporting event the night before and got to our room late. We had a couple of rooms as our family travels together frequently. We will probably not return to this location, and I will be sure to ask the next Holiday Express Inn if they have music stereo in the hallways and their check out time. Thank you for the opportunity to write a review.

I would like to recognize two people. First, Clarissa, who works in the breakfast area. She has a great personality and has a great attitude. She handled all my breakfast needs very well. Next, I would like to thank Jordan. Not only did she do an excellent job cleaning my room, she left me a "Thank You" note. That is the first time in a year and a half that someone took the time to write a note. I have communicated this to Joe, who, by the way is doing a fine job.

Staff is very friendly and helpful and focused on making your stay enjoyable.
The rooms are perfect. This isn't a luxury hotel, but they hit all the needs for me.
Pool, sauna, and jacuzzi are always in working order. Staff even turned on the sauna to pre-heat it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by to45 great location great price
The staff was friendly and helpful. Always smiling and making sure we are comfortable and asking if we need anything. The only complaint was the noise from the room next to us but that is not the hotel's fault. Close to Sunrise, near many local restaurants and reasonable price which includes breakfast is a great option for a family vacation on a budget.
