We stayed here with a group of 25 for four nights while attending the Tucson Rock Show. I have to say this is one of the most accommodating hotels we have stayed in. The manager, Rose, is very friendly and made sure that all of our needs were met and that everyone had a great time. The free breakfast had...

This HIX was an unscheduled stop due to a medical emergency; it was the only Holiday Inn in the area with a vacancy. We lucked out because it was a very nice hotel. We enjoyed the hot breakfast and there were no problems. This location would have been very difficult to find if our car were not equipped with GPS....

Thank you for choosing the Holiday Inn Express for your lodging needs. We are saddened to hear of the medical emergency and hope that all is well now. I will speak with our IHG consultant regarding the signage from the highway. Thank you for bringing that to our attention. Take Care.

We stayed here for a wedding nearby. The location was perfect and easy to get to from the interstate. The staff was friendly and helpful. We stayed in a king room that was roomy and clean. The bed was very comfy. My only complaint for the room is that you can hear everything very clearly- people above you, in the...

This Holiday Inn is near everything and is very convenient. The lobby is very nice with free favored water. The breakfast had a lot of variety, biscuit and eggs, sausage, cereal, cinnamon rolls and pancakes. The pancakes were made in a machine that all you had to do is push one button which was cool, too bad they tasted like...

Seems to be an older hotel. Beds are comfortable. Door to get into elevator is tiny, just wide enough for the cart to squeeze through. Carpet in room had stains on it, but otherwise room was clean. Wifi was reliable.

We stayed there three nights. The location was good, near to everything (restaurants, Starbucks, shopping). The room was clean and neat. The beds were comfortable. The maid service was thorough. I appreciated having a microwave and mini-fridge. We had high expectations but were disappointed that the internet connection in our room so poor. Spotty and unreliable. That's a big problem...

Our rooms are equipped with Ethernet connections for your convenience. Our location is great and close to many of Tucson's amazing attractions. We hope that you allow us another opportunity to serve your lodging needs in the future.

Quality of the stay was typical of a Holiday Inn Express. No surprises, just a clean room with a decent bed and mediocre Internet speed. I liked the location because I could walk to dinner at Texas Roadhouse. The amenities were low quality as was the TP. Staff in the breakfast room were attentive and friendly. I would stay here...

Very nice staff. Rooms are clean and quiet. Recommend for families and senior travelers. Breakfast is the typical hot with eggs, biscuits, etc. Coffee is good. Gas station just as you enter or leave. Walmart across the street. Very convenient location.

This property is very convenient for the freeway with a few good eateries close by. Our receptionist recommended the Texas Roadhouse and it was excellent. Both receptionists were friendly and helpful. However...the room was a little tired with a chipped bath. Noise from the freeway intruded the room and woke us prematurely. The breakfast selection wasn't great. The fruit juice...

I would probably rate this hotel a 2.5 out of 5. The room itself was nice (nice decor and modern furniture). The bedroom area was clean. The floors in the bathroom and the sink area were clean too.
