Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ceb2015 Great Hotel Overall!
If you need a comfortable and welcoming place to stay in Alvarado Holiday Inn Express is the place to go. They rooms are large, clean and comfortable and nice and dark for sleeping. The staff is so nice and helpful and you feel like you've known them your whole life. I didn't eat breakfast, but I heard it was delicious. I opted to sleep because I was tired. The bright lights in the parking lot made me feel comfortable about what I had to leave in my car and I could see my car from my room. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who needs a place in this area. Thanks HI Express! :-)

This hotel is attractive and appears to be fairly new. The lobby was warm and welcoming. Front desk gentleman very nice and checked us in efficiently. The room was spacious, very comfortable and very clean and I have very high standards. The complimentary breakfast was as good and plentiful as any I've seen and the breakfast area was clean and comfortable.

We stayed a few nights in Alvarado while on a quick shopping trip back in the US. Alvarado is smack-dab in the middle of RV dealerships (which we wanted to check out) and close enough to Dallas/Ft Worth/Arlington/others that we could also get some regular shopping done. It's extremely conveniently located off of I35 for those who need to break while traveling. Based on the reviews, we chose the HIE Alvarado. Wow! It turned out to be a very good choice.
Quite frankly, usually a hotel is a hotel is a hotel with a few variations. In the case of the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Alvarado, it was so much more. Without a doubt, the biggest reason was the staff. Everyone at the front desk never failed to greet us as we came and went. More importantly, they were incredibly helpful when I had a problem shipping my "package from h*ll," especially Shanna who said that she would personally make sure that it went out. It worked (online verification with the shipper)! The other three, Brian, Tim and Harrison, also kept a sharp eye on the PFH while some shipping bugs had to be worked out between the seller and the shipper. I was leaving before things had been completely settled and it was such a relief for me to be able to leave, knowing that the package was in good hands.
Victoria and Magda ensured that the breakfast items were hot and plentiful. Regardless of the time, there was always a sufficient supply of all of the breakfast items. We've stayed at numerous "name" hotels where it seemed like the food was rationed--if you didn't get up at the crack of dawn to beat the thundering hordes, too bad. The breakfast room was also kept immaculate, with plenty of copies of the daily paper available for anyone who wanted one.
The entire hotel was extremely clean and well maintained, especially our room. I'm sorry that I don't know the name of the person who did such a super job, but I hope the hotel reads this and credits her/him.
The pool and hot tub were a nice way to end the day. My only VERY SMALL complaint is that the shower didn't work in the pool bathroom; however, to be fair, I believe they were doing work during our stay, so that may have since been fixed.
If it seems like I'm a fan of this hotel, you're right. We've stayed at very high end hotels and other mid-range ones and HIE&S Alvarado could easily hold its own against any of them. It was a very pleasant stay for us.

The hotel was clean and modern. It's reasonably priced and no frills. Customer service was excellent and responsive. I'll stay there again when in town.
