Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by spinslps As A Priority Club Member, I Would Hope For Better
For many years I've been staying at the Holiday Inn Express in Peoria while in town for business. My office just recently moved to Scottsdale so I thought I'd try the H.I.E. over there. Pretty poor introduction. The room I was put in was much smaller than I was accustom to over in Peoria. It was also next to the door to the stairs which slammed closed all night, and for the topper, a hockey team was staying in my wing and decided to party in the hallway most of the night.
Granted most of the problems were a one time deal, but it really left me with a bad taste. Next time I'm back in Scottsdale, I think I'll be looking for another accommodation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by anyone Great Stay in Scottsdale
We had a great time staying at the Holiday Inn Express Scottsdale North! The staff is very nice, concientious, and helpful. We had to adjust our schedule midway through our stay and they were most accommodating in adding additional nights. The beds are soft; room was comfortable; breakfast was good - (some variety every morning). We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the Scottsdale area. We will stay here again the next time we are in town.

We really liked the room. The staff were helpful, courteous, and friendly. They always had a smile, and if they did not have an answer, they found one. The shuttle to Barrett-Jackson was a great convenience and the schedule worked out fine. Hotel on the hour and Auction on the half hour. There was shopping within walking distance for food, care, or pleasure.

A quick 4 day stay, room very tidy and neat. Breakfast absolutely perfect start to the day. Salt water pool and hot tub perfect end to the day. Ideally situated to enjoy all that Scottsdale offers. Easy travel to various golf courses and shopping.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mrercc Quiet yet close to everything
For us, this property is well located, but we have a car and used to live in the area. It is on a quiet street near Scottsdale and Shea. A few restaurants within walking distance and half way betwee the 2 malls I was interested in. Close to the golf courses I wanted to play, also. We had a great price - but it was because nothing was going on that weekend.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Hal2 Poor breakfast & late room cleaning
No juice available one breakfast and no orange juice available on third breakfast. Breakfast staff said they were out of juice supplies.
Room cleaning did not occur one day till after 5 pm. Front desk said there were a lot of check-outs that day. I stay at hotels/motels almost 30 times each year, and I've never heard this excuse before. I don't know if room cleaning would have been late the next day as I requested and received housekeeping service before 4 pm.

Wonderful location. Just off Scottsdale Blvd. and Shea. Because it is just off the main streets there is very little traffic noise. We will stay there again.

We live in Florida and visit family in Scottsdale at least annually. The Gold Dust Holiday Inn Express is our favorite place to stay. We have stayed in much pricier lodges that offer fewer amenities and smaller rooms. We'll be back!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BShan42 Servicable, But Corners Cut
The good news is that this is a reasonably-priced hotel with easy access to businesses and restaurants without being next to a busy road. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and if you're just looking for a place to stay, it works just fine.
The downside is that there are some rather obvious corners that have been cut. The breakfast options are severely lacking, especially if you are trying to eat healthy. No fruit, no whole milk. The only thing I found appetizing that wasn't loaded with sugar was the sausages, and even those were a little on the rubbery side.
The internet in particular is abysmal. This location advertises 'high speed WiFi', but apparently shares a single high-speed line with the entire hotel. The end result is a speed that barely qualifies as dial-up. So no streaming video, no online gaming - it can't even handle image-heavy static websites consistently. To make matters worse, the WiFi at local cafes and restaurants is almost as bad, so there are few alternatives. I work in web development and rely on the internet for most of my at-home entertainment, so this one is a dealbreaker for me.
All in all, I'm not impressed. If I wasn't stuck reserving the same hotel as my coworkers, I would be looking elsewhere.
One thing I will say is that the service is excellent - the staff are polite and helpful without exception. If I could get a decent breakfast and some high-speed WiFi that's actually high-speed, I'd give this place more stars in a heartbeat.

Great service, Nice shower, nice looking tv (HBO didnt work and the desk clerk said they probably don't get the channel - at 10 pm I wasnt going to kick up a fuss), good bed, clean room - just a great place to stay, work and relax.

Have stayed in Scottsdale for Business for many years. Happen to locate a Holiday Inn Express 6 miles north of were I usually stay. It is even more convenient for N and NW PHX and central PHX via Lincoln Dr and Scottsdale Rd. Location is close to shopping and dining options. It is quiet and the staff is pleasant and helpful through out the entire stay. The hotel is spotless as well as the rooms I have stayed in.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tuttapanna Comfort and convenience!
I have stayed here several times and it never fails to please.
It is so convenient to everywhere in Scottsdale and the Mayo Clinic.
Rooms clean and comfortable, beds and linens quite good.
Included breakfast good but could use more variety.
Great value for the price!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bunkie Breakfast and general housekeeping
Breakfast on two of the four days were were there has slow refills of the breakfast items. I had to forgo what I wanted on the last day because it arrived after I was finished with my meal.
Every day the elevator had not been vacuumed, and it looked quite dirty.
Overall, the experience was good, but not up to the standards of most Holiday Inn express which we have stayed in.

I was given a room right by the staircase on the second floor. There was high foot traffic in and out of that door and hallway late into the night. Noise level was unbearable. Amenities is new but facility has an out dated look.
I was in town for a continuing education course. Not having good night rests really affected my productivity.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Deano very enjoyable stay
I recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a clean room, helpful staff, good location, and good breakfast. The swimming pool looked inviting as well but I did not have time this trip.
Wade was very helpful in checking me in on Sunday afternoon. My room was clean and neat. the staff taking care of the rooms were very polite and helpful. The quiet was another good quality that I noticed. Front desk staff were always helpful and willing to accomadate special requests. The manager was helpfull when I incountered a problem with my Iphone. The breakfast was very good and the kitchen staff made sure that there was always food available for everyone. When you walked in they greated you graciously. The european blend coffee was excellent. The location was good and the grounds were well lit.
I will definitly stay here again when I visit Phoenix in the future.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Nosleep00 AC sounded like I was at an airport
The AC was so loud and would cycle that when it did it sounded like a helicopter was taking off - this went on through the night - hard to get sleep. Also front desk staff were barely warm - not really helpful
