“Great stay in Scottsdale”
Reviewed 26 February 2013

One night stay in the Holiday Inn Express Old Town Scottsdale 18 February 2013.
Perfect location well placed for the old town and also easy to walk up to Fashion Square and the bars, cages and restaurants. Stayed in a suite and lots of room and all facilities supplied. Lovely staff, very helpful and great shuttle bus for trips up town and also to the airport.
Comfortable hotel and even a small swimming pool and terrace. Only factor which could be improved upon would be breakfast which was a bit basic, although its only a few minutes walk to find alternatives. Would stay again as so convenient, easy and great staff.

Great location! Close to ball parks, shopping, many tourist areas and is a great value (specially during off season). What sets this apart from other HIE is the happy hour from 5-7pm with free snacks, beer, wine and soda. The breakfast is also very good and included in the price of the stay. Fresh and clean... and employees are great. This review is not a one time... this is time after time, year after year since they opened!

Room Tip: Top floor (3rd).... and poolside.... even with pool activities it is calm.

We stayed here for 3 nights last week and I have to say that the hotel lives up to all the reviews. Service was great (Dionte the Front House Manager in particular), the shuttle bus was a huge bonus, the breakfast was actually much better than we anticipated and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The pool area was also very nice. I would certainly stay here again and would be happy to recommend this as a great hotel for its bracket.

My husband and I only stayed one night, but we had a great experience at this HIE. The landscaping around the property and the outdoor pool area is exceptional. Check in was quick and parking was free with easy access to the rooms. In our room, everything but the bathroom had been updated. The room was very clean. Free WiFi worked well. A separate area outside the bath had an updated sink and granite top.The room had a separate sitting area between the bathroom and bed area that included a flat screen TV, microwave, small fridge, and coffee maker. There was a ceiling fan in the sitting room which seemed odd until I realized the bed area had double glass doors that shut off the bedroom heating/cooling unit.We didn't need to use the fan, but it is probably needed if the bedroom is closed off and someone is sleeping on the sofa bed. Our king bed was very comfortable and that area had it's own flat screen television. Cable channels and in room movies were both available. The fitness center had new equipment and plenty of room for several people to work out at once. Fresh water and towels were laid out. Two large flat panel televisions were available. The lobby is spacious and inviting. Coffee and tea are available all day and iced tea dispensers are set up by the glass doors to the pool area. The pool area was very pretty, clean, and had plenty of chairs and tables. The buffet breakfast was good and included all the usual hot and cold beverages, cereals, breads, some fresh fruit (bananas, apples), eggs, and bacon. There was plenty of seating and a large flat screen television. The in-room checkout was not working, but checkout at the desk was quick and efficient.

This is our 3rd stay at this property, and even though we knew it was getting tired, the value, the staff, location, happy hour and shuttle service couldn't be beat. We were pleasantly surprised to see the remodeling/updating completed. Clean comfortable rooms with new furniture, TVs, etc. (except bathroom - toilet & tub - wasn't updated which was kind of weird when the rest of the room was completely updated). We received a very friendly welcome along with a bag of goodies for priority club membership. Super shuttle service plus cookies and milk at 7:30. Can't say enough good things about this place. TiP: This HIE can be hard to find. It is on the corner of Earll and N. Scottsdale Rd, and entrance is on Earll.

I stayed here for a week and found the property and staff to be top notch. The property was very clean and well kept; good breakfast selection; staff were professional and accomodating; warm cookies and milk at bedtime were a nice touch.

Room Tip: The third floor was mostly quiet even with a large convention in town.

We stayed here a week. Friendly staff. Beautiful rooms. Everything updated. Heated outdoor pool with electric chair that could be put into pool or hot tub if you were handicapped. Wonderful breakfast and also free happy hour with chips and salsa and two drinks each and fresh cookies and popcorn. Excellent location to all points in the valley. We also left our car there for a week while we went to Cancun and had the free shuttle to and from airport. No complaints what so ever.

Room Tip: Third floor quiet..second floor over happy hour a bit noisy for awhile..
