We recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for a second time. This time we were traveling with extended family, and had 4 rooms. I was a bit concerned due to some less than positive recent reviews, but we had a wonderful time. My only complaint was that they were unable to put us in 4 rooms close together which was a bit inconvenient, and which I had requested when I made the reservations, but not a big issue.
I'd read complaints of noise issues. We didn't have any problems with noise, other than some road noise as we were in the front of the hotel, facing Russell Road which is a fairly busy street with a freeway on/off ramp. We did have two rooms together, and the room we stayed in was next door to my daughter, her husband, and her one-year old baby. Even though he cried some (according to his Mom), we never heard him, and didn't hear anything from the room on the other side either.
My main reason for returning to this hotel was that I remembered it as being very comfortable. To my relief, that was still the case. The beds were very comfortable (my son remarked that it was the best sleep he's had in a year or more), the room was of adequate size with a king size bed, a comfortable chair for relaxing, and a computer desk. The wifi was a bit slow, but free and adequate for our needs. The bathrooms have wonderful shower heads.
I asked my family, and the general consensus was that all 4 rooms were kept clean and in good repair. I noticed a few places where the wall paper was peeling a bit in the bathrooms, and we had trouble with our door sticking and my room key not working properly, but no major issues. One area that was a little puzzling was that our room had a window air conditioner, controlled from a switch on the unit itself, while the other rooms seemed to have wall mounted thermostats. As a result, we had a bit of a problem regulating the temperature in our room.
We felt the continental breakfast was adequate, and the breakfast room was large and we had no trouble finding two tables close together for all 8 of us. There was a fairly good variety of breakfast foods, from yogurt and cereal to pastries to biscuits and gravy. I've had some breakfasts that I preferred that included a wider variety of fruit and waffles or pancakes, but we managed to eat enough to tide ourselves over until lunch.
There was adequate parking and we had no trouble finding a parking place when we returned late at night following a concert at MGM Grand. My daughter and her family used the pool, and the area seemed to be kept clean, with towels available in bins and lounges available for Grandma and Grandpa to watch the baby splash.
The staff was friendly and asked if we needed anything as we were coming and going. We didn't use the shuttle which runs to the strip, or the fitness rooms so I have no opinions on those.
Especially when traveling with a baby I prefer staying off the strip. The Holiday Inn Express South was a very good choice, and I'd be likely to stay there again on another vacation.
