“The best hotel in Southern Utah”
Reviewed 7 April 2011

I have been meaning to write this review for a while, and, finally got around to it.

But, the Holiday Inn Express deserves it.

The hotel is new, wonderfully charming (old west theme, if you will) and clean. We have stayed here several times on the way to or from SLC and have never been disappointed.

Rooms are clean and spacious, free WiFi and quiet.

Pool is indoor, heated and again, spacious.

Breakfast offering is standard, nothing more, nothing less. But solid and helpful when all you want is a bagel or some cereal.

If you are driving to or through Utah, heading to the Grand Canyon, I would recommend the Holiday Inn Express.

Room Tip: Ask for something on the 2nd floor.

After driving ~180 miles from Desert View in the Grand Canyon (passing a total of three gas stations and a single town), we were thrilled to pull into the relative metropolis of Kanab at about 9:15 PM to unload the minivan at the HI Express. This modern hotel is like a home away from home! It was easy to settle into, and has great facilities. Most of the family loved the western/cowboy motif, especially the BIG cowboy boots out front, the bathroom wallpaper and the unique steer-horn bathroom light fixtures. The rooms are spacious and very clean. There are laundry facilities on each floor, which were great for a mid-road-trip wash-n-dry. It is clear that the owners spent signficant money on the design and decoration of the hotel. After a day trip of hiking in nearby Zion NP and the Coral-Pink Sand Dunes SP (well worth the detour to get to BTW), it was great to relax and play cards with our family and friends in the lovely and spacious breakfast area. We took over the place like it was our own living room, and the staff was friendly and supportive of our doing so. Although we did not use the pool and spa, the facilities looked first rate. Breakfast itself was very good. It was not quite as varied as at the HIE at the Grand Canyon, but the spaciousness and decor of the room more than made up for the lack of pancakes. There is a full supermarket right across the street, which is very handy for stocking up on groceries and supplies. Kanab is (for southern Utah) centrally located and convenient to both Zion (~45 mins) and Bryce Canyon (~75 mins) parks. It also has a surprisingly strong history of serving as a western set for the filming movies and TV shows over the past 50+ years. Overall, the town and the HIE are highly recommended... just don't expect Hollywood and the Beverly Hills Hotel :^)

I travel between Tucson and Boise several times a year, and always plan my overnight stay here, even though I'd prefer to drive a little further when heading north. This is one of the CLEANEST hotels I have ever stayed in (and I've stayed in many). Beds are comfortable, rooms are tastefully decorated, pool and spa are a delight, and the breakfast buffet is decent. I've read reviews complaining about large groups staying here, but we've all experienced that at different hotels, too. I highly recommend this hotel.

Pros:
1. The room was clean
2. The bed was very comfortable

Cons:
1. (Nose picking): Upon my arrival in the late evening, the female receptionist who assisted me picked her nose (for awhile) right in front of me! (Gross...)
2. (Failure to communicate): I asked for a quiet room as I am a light sleeper. After much searching she told me this was a quiet part of the hotel and gave me my card key.
3.(Noisy): When I arrived at my room (the time was approx. 11:30pm) I was disappointed to hear that the large group of people who had arrived just before me had been assigned the room directly above mine. Because of the crappy construction of the thin walls, I eventually (after 1.5 hours) had to wear earplugs to get some sleep.

Usually Holiday Inn Express is better than this....

We stayed here because it was central to several active vacation attractions we wanted to photograph - specifically, the Paria BLM contact station from which, if you're lucky, you can obtain a "Wave" permit.

Holiday Inn Express had relaxing, comfortable rooms which were most appreciated after a day of hiking and a delicious breakfast buffet early enough to accomodate those wanting to get out early in the day.

The hotel itself is conveniently located and the rooms are nice and clean. However, there had a large group of Korean tourists who got up very early in the morning and made a lot of noise. The sound insulation was very poor and we were woken up at around 5 AM. The breakfast bar was fairly good. We appreciated the free internet access. I got the government discount and was quite happy with the rate.

The hotel room was clean and nice. We had extended our stay and wanted to stay in the same room, the staff was really helpful and rearranged the room immediately. Highly recommended.
