Holiday Inn Express Las Vegas South
Travel Blogs from Las Vegas
Today was a long drive to Vegas. We left and drove to the Four Corners so we could put our hands and feet in each of the four states that join there. The states are New Mexico, Utah, Colorado and Arizona. Then I drove the 500 miles to Las Vegas going over the Hoover Dam which was amazing. We checked into the hotel and then went out for a drive down …

Holiday Inn South Las Vegas, NV Polaris Avenue
... watch the beginning of the game. I actually didn’t mind too much, considering how nice my room was.
But, I had to check out by 11 am. So I left and went over to Harrah’s. I figured there was no way I could get a seat at The Venetian. But I managed to get a pretty good seat at Harrah’s, and watched the Michigan coach make the stupidest coaching decision ever. They got a touchdown right at the end of the game. ...
... it pretty easy just wandering down the strip, as you do here, having a nosey in each hotel along the way. I'll list the hotels we checked out with a quick blurb about each. They are all ridiculous, being to oversized and garish, but hey, this is Vegas.
Wynn - a bit like Alice in wonderland inside. Magical gardens, with giant flowers, bright coloured umbrellas hanging from the ceiling, and a big waterfall courtyard to sit and sip tea in.

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express Las Vegas South
Nice, clean hotel
Stayed @ the Holiday Inn Express Las Vegas South (near the airport) on Friday, May 20, and Friday, May27. The hotel looked brand new, the room was spacious and clean. convenient location. helpful front desk clerks.
Very Good Stay
Hotel was great! Front desk personel were very helpfull. Room was a little small, but clean. Morning breakfast was good. Shuttle bus to strip saved a lot of driving and worry out of where to park on the strip. It ran every 1/2 hour. Hotel pool was very nice and relaxing. We were there to see the sights of the strip, not really to gamble. Stayed two nights. The hotel was out of the way and quiet. Internet available in lobby to check in with family back home. Reasonable in cost, clean, quiet.
Very pleasant stay, and our room smelled clean!!!!!
My hubby and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express and we thought it was great! The rooms are well appointed, and more importantly, the staff was wonderful. I hate the fact that any room you get on the strip, even the non-smoking rooms, reek of cigarette smoke. So this was great. The room was SPOTLESS, breakfast was great. If you want to stay on the strip, this is on the strip but pretty far away from the big casinos. I would totally recommend this hotel to anyone. Our only complaint would be the fact that the air-conditioner is quite loud, effective but loud. However, it is a window unit, but has a wall thermostat.
Holiday Inn - near the strip
Stayed at the Holiday Inn off Russell Rd. They have free breakfast. very reasonable rates. Shuttle back and forth to the Bellagio Hotel every half hour. and free use of a computer to check your e-mail. Nice rooms.
Much easier to stay here than in the main area. easy check in, no lines for breakfast, etc.
We were very happy with our Executive Queen room, which had 2 queen beds, a sofa sleeper, small fridge and microwave. Our family of 4 (2 teenage boys) fit amply in the room. We were in L.V. for vacation, but are not big gamblers - came to gawk mainly. This hotel was perfect because we could escape the smoke, slots, and hubub of The Strip, yet it was easy enough to drive over and park at any of the major hotels there. The daily continental breakfast was convenient and sufficient. The room was clean and the bathroom sparkling! A small detail - if Holiday Inn is trying to improve their image, they should pay attention to some of the details, such as better facial tissue and toilet paper...If you make a reservation online, be aware that once you pay for your room there is NO changing anything. We tried to modify our reservation and they would not budge at all.
If you want be where all the action is i suggest you don't stay here. It really is isolated. If you don't have your own transport, its a nightmare of unnecessary cab rides. If u want a quite place to stay away from the strip then i suggest you stay here.
Overall its not worth the money.
Stayed from 12-26-04 to 12-31-04. Loved the hotel. We are Holiday Inn Express people (we stay at one every time we travel). We love the complimentary breakfasts (the warm cinnamon rolls are the best) and the great service. This was another great experience, but the proximity to the strip is frustrating. The shuttle from the hotel to the strip takes you right to the Bellagio and Mandalay Bay. However, it only runs until 11pm, so we turned in early most nights. It isn't terribly far to walk across the overpass to get to the Mandalay Bay, but it was cold and we weren't willing to try it. On that note, it was very nice to come in after being out in the cold to the fireplace in the lobby. Very cozy. In comparison to other hotels, you are treated like a VIP by the staff because it's small and family-oriented. We had friends staying at the MGM Grand who complained about having to pay to use the gym. The fitness room at the HIE is small, but ample enough for us. We boasted about our fabulous breakfast and our friends whined that they had not eaten breakfast because of the extra expense. The rooms are clean and neat and simple. It's new, so they have no problems. The non-smoking room we chose had no smell. It was lovely.
We returned on Sunday October 10, 2004 from our four day trip to Las Vegas. We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express on Polaris. Awesome facility and very family friendly. The hotel is very new, but there were just a few things needing attention. Nothing big just the handle in the bathroom was loose as was the hook on the door. Very minor.
New, friendly and well kept. Buffet breakfast is great.
Stayed for a week to see Vegas without having to stay in a casino.
The rooms are great and extremely clean. The staff were always very helpful. The breakfast has a big range of pastries, yoghurts, muffins, waffles and fruit. And, considering it's free, is a much better bet than the overpriced buffets at some of the casino hotels.
The hotel also had a shuttle to the Strip - which is a good thing because the heart of Vegas is a fair old walk away. Two other goodies my wife and I made use of during our trip were the freebie wi-fi internet access in the room, and coin-op laundry. Both made preparing for the next stage of a long trip much easier.
It's well priced and worth a stay.
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express on May 7 & 8. We were very pleased with this facility. The rooms were very nice and clean, and the bedding was wonderful. I have heard that this hotel was opened in December 2003, so it was practically brand new. It is about 1 mile from the strip, but they offered a shuttle service to the Bellagio. They also had Continental Breakfast (which was quite expansive), and you usually don't get this at the casino hotels. The pool area is very nice, and was not busy at all for our entire stay. We never had to fight for a chair...actually we were usually the only people at the pool. Although this hotel is off-strip, it was convenient for us, since we had a rental car. We are not big gamblers, so we enjoyed this hotel because we could have some quiet vacation time, but also to be able to visit the bigger casinos and crowds as we wanted. I would definitely recommend this hotel for those that want a nice room, and a place to get away from it all!
