Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by On Vacation Attention Needed to Details
When I checked in the refrig in the room was not plugged in and was positioned where it was difficult to plug in. The TV did not get NBC which was crucial for Olympics coverage. Changed rooms so I could use a smaller TV with all channels. The second room had a lamp with no light bulb. Several little things were not up to Holiday Inn Express standards.

As always with Holiday Express the room was clean and comfortable. The only problem was no hot water at the sink in the early morning and when I turned it to cold water there was no flow at all. The clerk wrote it down and said she would have it checked out.
Other than that it was very nice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kerick5700 Good place to return to.
I have stayed here often - either flying into Tucson or getting ready to fly away. It is close to the airport (with shuttle if needed), but airplane noise isn't heard. The weekday breakfast starts at 0530, so you usually can get breakfast before heading to airport or off to work. This hotel has the earliest breakfast in the area - that I know about and is one reason I stay here.
Rewards members get free "diet" water when checking in - inside joke with desk staff.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 1showdogmom Room layout
Vanity near door; small amount of wardrobe space; ironing board mount too low so it was shoved at the back of the hanging space. This should be remedied. Also thermostat was not working properly - I found out why: the unit had been unplugged from the wall!!! The "Off" setting between heat and A/C did not work. Needs to be replaced.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 1showdogmom Comfortable bed, linens, lacking in some areas
The renovations are very nice; however the carpets still smell of glue. Beds super comfortable, love having firm and soft pillows. Towels etc. nice and fluffy, sparkling clean. However, personal amenities, shampoo not replenished as used, coffee supplies not replenished. One BIG disappointment at breakfast: you offer fat free milk, low fat milk and ARTIFICIAL CREAMER. Every other hotel I have stayed in this year offered 1/2 and 1/2 - your coffee was nice and hot and tasty - would have been much better with 1/2 and 1/2 !! Fortunately I bring along "Mini Moos" (Safeway)
for coffee I purchase at dog shows! The powdered stuff is unhealthy.
Breakfast items nice and fresh and hot, nice selection, but fresh fruit was not replenished once selection was used up.
Sometimes it's these little mis-steps that earn an average rating.

I was there 4 nights. The 1st morning of breakfast was horrible. When I arrived at 7:30am, almost everything was gone. I asked 1 of the desk clerks about the lack of food, and she replied the person responsible was busy that morning shuttling people to the airport. Obviously not properly staffed. The remainder of the 3 morning breakfasts were average. Expensive for area, amenities, and condition of room furniture.

As a Platinum status member, I consider this property a great value and the location near the airport is perfect. The staff is
courtesy, professional and accommodating. I highly recommend it to my fellow business travelers.

The room was nice & we got a good nights sleep. The breakfast was also satisfactory. When we checked in, the lady who helped us was very nice & thanked me for being an IHG platinum member, but no upgrades were offered or any other complimentary things (bottled waters, etc) like I've experienced at other Holiday Inn Express locations.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Marky77 shuttle service or lack of
I stayed at your hotel last week and again was disappointed with your airport shuttle service. I had a 6:25 AM flight and the night clerk assured me that the hotel shuttle would take us operated by the hostess. At 5:15 when we got down to the front desk the clerk had to call a service while we nervously waited. This happened last time and we arrived at the gate as boarding was almost done. All the time the front clerk complained that she gets the blame for bad management. I don't care what but as a platinum member I am most likely going to stay somewhere else next time.

This property looks like it has just been renovated. The lobby is beautiful. The staff was super friendly. I did not care for the floor plan of my room; the bathroom vanity is next to the door, but the room was spacious and most important the bed was comfortable. The fitness equipment was great too.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ghawk Questionable service
I booked 2 rooms in Nogales for 1 night and 2 rooms in Tucson for 1 night. I did not get the receipts under the door at either Hotel. Both were booked on the Priority club website and prepaid. The young lady at Nogales was very nice and asked me if I wanted her to print me one which I do need as they are expensed. When checking out to go to the airport at 5 am in Tucson the young lady with 2 inch funky colored fingernails on both hands told me I would have to get my receipts from the company I bought them from and that it was a 3rd party. I'm no fool. It felt like she did not want to be bothered with a guest at 5 am. She was in back doing something. Sleeping maybe? We had no time to argue with her and just walked out. That's absolutely ridiculous. I have had this priority club membership for 4 or 5 years and never had a problem getting a receipt.

I stay at HI Expresses on all business trips where available and have always been more than satisfied. When staying with you I feel as if it was an inconvenience to the gal behind the desk. When I arrived I had to wait for her to finishing texting on her phone to get registered. 1 set of keys would not work, second set of keys would not work and the third trip back down to the lobby she was in the office behind the registration desk. After waiting several minutes I called "Miss" and got a "I'll be there is a minute answer" and she gave me a third set of keys. A young man on duty (tall and slender) not sure of his position, accompanied me to see if they worked. After several tries I got in. He was very apologetic and said if I had trouble again to let him know and that maintenance would not be in until the next day. She didn't acknowledge I was a Priority Club Member, thank me for staying there or even offer me a bottle of water. This is not changing my habit of stay at HI Express, however, I will check out other hotels in the area prior to making my decision when in the Tucson area. I recommend you switch positions with the young man and the gal behind the registration desk.

I was VERY DISPLEASED when I got to my room after being gone the entire day and to see my room was exactly the way we left it, with the exception, they gave us new towels. That morning we woke up, had coffee, rolls, all this was left in the room as well as our unmade beds. When we got in at 9pm our room was exactly the same as we left it, except clean towels, and the beautiful thing was the used towels were still on the floor!!!!!!!! Of course I called down stairs, I'm very sorry about this, I'll take care of you next time, yeah right, I will not step foot in that place again. VERY DIAPOINTED, I stay in hotels quite a bit with work, and have never experienced this with chain? I complained again in the morning, and was told I'm very sorry, this room should have ben comped.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chippertech Granddaughter's Visit - Summer 2013
My father-in-law, my wife, and me stayed in this hotel. Check-in was fast; they provided bottled water, a quick snack (cookie), and informed us of our usual needs, e.g., breakfast time & location, airport shuttle times, etc. Upon room arrival, our electronic keys did not operate. When I returned downstairs to obtain new ones, the front desk accompanied me back up stairs to ensure that the keys would operate correctly. I realize that things like this happen, but what's great is that the front desk clerk was there in the event of additional legwork (for the remote chance that the new key cards didn't work, either!#. Upon entering the room, it was quite warm #Arizona). We adjusted the temperature and rapidly attained the desired comfort level. I consider this smart to sacrifice a few minutes of discomfort for the energy savings to the hotel. This is what keeps costs down! Thanks for being there for us.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Van8 Bad satellite service
Had a 2 week stay in which half of the television channels would not come in. Brought it to the attention of the staff but kept being blaimed on the provider. only one other individual across the hall had the same situation but nobody else. They are recently renovated rooms and the wall sockets are coming out from the wall when you unplug an item such as a phone charger. So unsure if this problem possibly contributes to a cable issue coming from the wall.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dan2701 Not up to the new brand standards
This is a rehabbed Holiday Inn Express, which is normally fine but you can see that the structure here is actually pretty old and dated, while there are some upgraded facades throughout. The bathroom is old and felt like it. The bathroom fixtures need updating and make you feel like the front entrance of the hotel is lying to you with it's newer, fancy appearance. Overall, the appearance isn't horrible but isn't up to par with most other HIX either.
The real problem i had and the reason I cut my stay here short was the internet. It was embarrassingly slow. I couldn't open basic web pages, attachments to email and forget about movies. I called the front desk but the lady said she hadn't had any other complaints "but it might be a little slow". Right. I called the tech support number, but the tech wasn't able to do anything by trouble shoot MY computer and iPad. Couldn't reset the router, couldn't see the network for any abnormal bandwidth use, they couldn't do anything but refer it to her superior and they would get back to me the next day.
In today's day and age of business travel, you not only need to have wifi, but it needs to be good. This hotel has blatantly subpar wifi by any reasonable standard. I would not stay here again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Rodney1776 Remodel?
Overall the remodel seems to be going well. One suggestion is to make sure the upgrade includes faucets and bathroom fixtures. Some of the faucets and fixtures seem to be original, dull and much needed to be upgraded. As well as the bath tub itself.
Please do not leave those details out. It would be like the Beverly Hillbillies moving in to their mansion, with all the old furniture.
