The rooms and suites at the Holiday Inn Express normally accommodate up to four; if you need more space, certain rooms can be connected (request this at time of booking). In addition, cribs are available for some rooms, and additional rollaway beds can be provided for a nightly fee. The main difference between the guest rooms and suites is that suites come with a sofa bed, kitchenette, and dining table, whereas rooms just have a mini-fridge and coffee maker. Both are equipped with free Wi-Fi.
An American-style free breakfast buffet is included with all reservations, with plenty of hot breakfast items available. Kids love splashing in the swimming pool, which is set outdoors against a beautiful red-rock backdrop, and a smaller wading pool is available for the tykes. Other onsite perks include a hot tub, BBQ grills, horseshoe pits, and a fitness center.

By far the worst stay during our ten day trip. The hotel has a big hall where they serve breakfast with a cathedral-like ceiling. If you have the bad luck to get a room adjacent to this space you are guaranteed a sleepless night and a stinky morning. You'll hear everything as if your bed was in the breakfast area. In addition, if your room has windows facing the street close to the entrance area you are in for an extra treat.
This is how our night looked like:
In the evening there was a group of people congregated in the breakfast area laughing and yelling until midnight, literally I could hear everything as if they were in my room. Shortly after midnight they went to sleep and so did I, or I thought so.
At four am, a huge delivery truck stopped at the main entrance, engine idling until they unloaded some stuff for about 20 minutes that seemed like an eternity. Neither the truck driver nor the hotel staff care to think that there are people sleeping in the hotel.
At six am, the room filled with a strong smell of bacon, sign that the breakfast is about to be served The smell stayed in our room until 9am.
At 6:30 am, the breakfast hall filled with people some of which were quite loud, so I
renounced any intention of sleeping in.
And as if this was not enough, the mindful hotel staff has installed a pair of loudspeakers above the hotel entrance (which incidentally was right under my window) where they play music continuously, day and night, especially night. I could hear this music from my room, repetitive, on and on all night.
This is totally unacceptable.
