3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nice location. Near the stop of the park shuttle. The bed was not comfortable. Too expensive.

We stayed in the smaller, "back section" of the hotel and it was very quiet and convenient to the breakfast and spa.

Beautiful hotel close by the South Rim entrance to the Grand Canyon!! Room was clean and cozy!! Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was always delicious! Thank you ALL!!

Front desk lady who checked us in was nice. The process was quick. We asked for a room on the 3rd floor because we don't like having people above us but we still heard noises like someone was. Overall, the room was clean when we got there. No foul smell like other smaller inns we've been to. The only problem is the ac/heat was not working properly. We put it on low fan and set the thermostat at 68 degrees but it still kept turning on and off as if it was on 'auto'. It was a little noisy for our comfort that's why we didn't really have a good night sleep. The on and off noise of the fan kept waking us up. It takes a long time to turn back on and the room would get warmer than how we wanted it to be. The bed was okay but the pillows are too high it didn't feel right. The breakfast was included in our stay but didn't really meet our expectations. We've been to other locations before but this time we weren't as satisfied. Considering all these, I would give our overall hotel experience a 3.5 because of the cleanliness of the room and the convenient location to the Grand Canyon South Rim.

We rented a vehicle in Phoenix and traveled north to the Grand Canyon area. Locate just a few mile from the park entrance, this hotel was in the perfect location for the price. Pleasant staff that accommodated every guest request I observed. Buses were not running into the park at the time we visited. TIP: For those people that want to view the sunrise it's great, for those that don't, expect a rush at the breakfast an hour after sunrise. It was crazy! The attendants were extremely friendly and helpful. The best breakfast selection of our two week trip. AND for all those that have served our great nation and have a rated disability, be sure to bring your paperwork to the park entrance where you can receive your lifetime pass to National Parks. Easy as pie with the right paperwork. Saves you the $30 entrance fee! We used that several times during this trip. Cheers!

Good experience. Staff was efficient despite being sold out.

Very good location of 10 minutes driving to Great Canyon visitor center. The room is large and clean. Parking is also convenient. The only poor thing is the breakfast. The breakfast is of few kinds of food. Overall the hotel is good for visiting Grand Canyon.

The hotel was very convenient for our hiking trip to the Grand Canyon. The breakfast area was very large and has plenty of room for large group of guests. We had a group of 18 and we had no problem with any of our rooms and had a great breakfast in a timely manner. Parking was adequate even on a busy night.

Our room was spacious, comfortable, modern and very clean.

Reasonably priced, excellent staff, great breakfast, good location.

Something to look for near the strip Hotel staff is friendly

Visited the Grand Canyon in October. It was mobbed with tourists, but this is probably true most of the year. Hats off to the Holiday Inn Express. The staff handled the mob scene extremely well, especially the free breakfast. I highly recommend getting a top floor room due to the noise, but I'm sure all hotels are like this in the Tusayan area. Anyway, it was a good experience overall. The sheer amazing beauty of the Canyon override any inconvenience you might see with (other) tourists.

The fitness center was closed and the room the pool was in was disgusting. The only positives of the hotel are the location and the staff in the breakfast room. I would never stay there again

The hotel is well situated near the park entrance. Breakfast was nice. The staff very pleasant and accommodating.

Good location, close to Grand Canyon. Issue with mini fridge that took staff two times to properly address.

Nice facility. Clean, comfortable. Lousy Wi-Fi. Clerk mentioned at check in and full page letter in room apologized and explained carrier problems. Sounds like an area problem not specific to this hotel. Could be frustrating for the internet addicted.

Pleasant and courteous staff. Free upgrade. Staff very pleasant about having to come and sweep our room crackers on the floor.

Very good breakfast, indoor pool, clean rooms and convenient to the park.

There weren't many choices for our stay & Holiday Inn is a brand name we can always count on for the bssics & their consistency. However, we were very pleasantly surprised. The rooms are updated, pretty new & very clean. We didn't have time for the pool (small indoors) but it is a great option when the weather is 26 degrees out. The continental breakfast had a lot of choices, it was closer to a full breakfast. Only two minor things I didn't like 1) the rude, obnoxiously loud, inconsiderate couple that was yelling at each other late into the night 2) I hate eating in disposable plates but considering how nice everything else was it was a great stay.
