Holiday Inn Express Marana
Ranked #3 of 5 Hotels in Marana
Reviewed 12 July 2014

We has stated at the Holiday Inn Express in Las Cruces and really liked it, so we booked this stay the next night. Most Holiday Inn Express are relatively new and thus location was in that same category. Very convenient location just north of Tucson. That allowed an early start towards Hoover Dam and Vegas without having to deal with down town traffic or rush hour congestion. Ample parking although the closest TWO handicap spaces are marked for manager. Manager should be parking in back and freeing up those spaces for handicap guests. Lobby and public areas were spotless. Staff at the front desk were courteous. There is no full service restaurant at Holiday Inn Express locations, but there were many fast food and sit down dining options within walking or short drive distance. The room was spotless and smelled new. Ample towels and amenities. Mini fridge, unlike the Las Cruces location, had a small freezer box in it so we could put our ice packs in and get them frozen for the next days travel and protect my wife's medications which need to be kept chilled. Nice large big screen TV and free WiFi internet. The bonus was that this location has a laundry for guests to wash their clothes. This was a very nice amenity as we had been traveling now for 6 days and needed to refresh the dwindling supply of clean clothes in the suit cases. You will need to provide laundry detergent. There is no dispenser for same in the laundry room. Location was quiet, and seemed to be in a good area. Breakfast the next day was buffet style and they offered a variety if items from scrambled eggs, and bacon or sausage, to cereal or fruits with coffee or milk or juice etc.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We certainly do apologize for the parking situation. It is my pleasure to inform you that the second parking space dedicated to "Manager" has been removed. As a convenience to our guests, we offer laundry soap at the front desk. We look forward to serving your lodging needs again in the future.

On the northwest side of Tucson headed out of town, made for a good start in the morning when headed toward San Diego. Very new side of town with a large selection of restaurants and retail stores for anything that might be needed. Good access off and on the interstate.

Room Tip: Motel is perpendicular to interstate so most rooms don't have any highway noise.

This hotel is well placed just west of Tucson, perfect for people going to to Phoenix. The hotel and room were very clean and the staff was accommodating. I made my reservation hours before I arrived and I checked in without a problem. The only problem I had was the air conditioning was off in the room and the temperature outside was 100+. However, that may have been a result of the late reservation.

The hotel is near where we needed to stay for business. The room was clean but the bed was soft. I personally like a very hard mattress. The breakfast selection was terrible and so I choose to eat outside the hotel even though breakfast was included. Many good restaurants are within walking distance or a short car ride away across a large intersection. Wouldn't suggest walking across it.

The rooms are spacious and beds are comfortable. I would have given this a 5 rating if not for the very odd smell in the room that never went away even with the window open. The hallway smelled like cigarettes. Hotel breakfast was good, had wonderful cinnamon rolls. The hotel seriously would have been great other than the smells.

Worst hotel stay in my 25 years of business travel. Required to sign a statement that we would not smoke in the room, but apparently everyone else smoked in there. The windows were covered with very dirty little kid hand prints. Went to my father's funeral with the kids and I smelling like we spent the night in an ashtray.
