We stayed here for two nights to visit family. Have nothing negative to say. King size bed was great, coffee machine in room, free coffee in lobby all the time, free breakfast. Great location on the edge of the desert. We have stayed at just about all the Holiday Inn Express in this area, this one was just as good....

The room was very nice, we were upgraded to queen suite because they didn't have a king bed for all the nights we were there, I would have rather had the king bed since we didn't need 2 beds or the suite, but it was very roomy and would be great for travel with kids. Breakfast was a little above...

Very nice rooms except they are noisy. We had a room on the end of the building so outside wall on one side. It was still noisier than expected. Have stayed at comfort suites, Marriott's hamptons etc. this had more noise. Breakfast was the usual but good and they kept it replenished and fresh. The best thing was the bed....

Very nice HI Express. We stayed here after the College playoff game (Go Tigers!). It was very convenient to the stadium (maybe a 30 minute drive). Our rooms were large, clean and comfortable. Breakfast is very good (I love their cinnamon rolls!!) Refrigerator and microwave in the room. I would definitely stay here again if in the area.

We wanted something kind of close to home but far enough to justify getting a hotel for the weekend. We chose Surprise to check out and this Holiday Inn Express. We've stayed at other properties and this was just as good. The beds were firm but comfortable. The room was clean and we had good housekeeping service. The staff were...

we were passing through phoenix on a road trip and were looking for an inexpensive, clean place to stay. We found this place on a last minute availability page and were pleasantly surprised. The room was clean with a comfortable king bed. Breakfast was included and was better than expected. This place exceeded our expectations.

I'm a platinum member and have stayed at many HIE properties, and this one ranks up there with my favorites. Upon arriving I had the pleasure of meeting one of the managers, Andrea. She was super helpful from the start and during my three day stay. Even though the reason I came to Arizona was for events in Phoenix, I...

We always stay here for Spring Training and for visiting family. It has everything we want and at a reasonable price. The location, the accommodations, the price, and the free breakfast all add up to a very nice stay. In the beginning we tried other places, but this place is the best!

My family and I (hubby and 2 kids) recently stayed at this Holiday Inn. It was new so of course the rooms and everything else inside was clean and fresh. The breakfast was excellent the ladies that take care of it do a great job keeping everything neat and tidy and stocked. Pool area was also nice and clean. Rooms...
