Rooms are nice and the breakfast is a plus. Not many places to eat close by and parking can be a problem if you don't get there early.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Shane1977 Good Hotel
I was nervous about the location, but it turned out to be just fine. The building seems to be a little dated, but it looks like maybe they have done some remodeling. I have stayed in better, but for the price it was good. The only thing bad that comes to mind is the fact that at the time of my stay, only one elevator was working and it is slow, so there were some long waits to and from the room and lobby.

Staff was very helpful throughout our stay. They gave us a call to check the satisfaction of our room….very accommodating to my disability and my service dog. Despite having issues with the elevator, and parking issues (due to a guest that parked his bus in the parking lot), service was exceptional….A+++

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ItsMagic HIE El Paso Central
I travel quite a bit for business. This was my first stay at this HIE property, it was a one night stay for business, prior to an early morning flight out of El Paso airport.
This hotel is an older Holiday Inn property, but is well maintained and I had a nice stay. I was greeted by Charles at the front desk who was extremely helpful. My room was on the 6th floor and was in good condition, and quiet.
Upon my early departure in the morning the night desk operator(very sorry I did not get his name) offered to make me up a bag of breakfast items for me to take with me. This was the first time I have ever been offered this and it was very appreciated.
In my case this was only an overnight stay with a short drive to the airport(10-15 minutes depending on traffic). I can't comment on restaurant choices or other amenities nearby.
I would stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bex24 Thank you
On thrursday January 9, my parents and I stayed at the holiday inn express central in El Paso. From the moment we walked in we were greeted with a smile by Charles who was at the front desk. In the morning one of the drivers took us to where we needed to go and another picked us up. They were both very courteous. The room was clean everyone that worked at the hotel was nice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Babsywit7 Love this place
Started out feeling nervous after I got my parking tag that stated the hotel would not be responsible for anything that happened to my car while parked in their lot overnight; but felt better about it when I spoke to the man at the front desk. Wow! He was a really nice fellow and he put me right at ease. I also like the fact that they have food options for late night travelers so we don't have to go back out and search for open restaurants only to find horrible fast food options! I had a nice turkey and stuffing dinner instead. Now that is worth it's weight In gold! Oh, and the bed was so comfortable! I felt as if I were sinking into a cloud!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by AA05 Not a first choice
Well, first thing is the location. It can be a bit awkward to get to, and kind of confusing with all these one-way streets. Secondly, you're situated next to some highways, so the noise is a factor to consider. Third, the floors are dingy, old, smelly, and appear quite unsanitary with their mysterious and multiple stains. The overwhelming smell permeating in the air only added to one's paranoia of sleeping there.The rooms were ample enough but definitely not sparkling. I found random pieces of hair in the bath tub and even an earring on the floor. The staff were friendly and always willing to help. Not a major deal but no recognition for IHG rewards members. Nevertheless, the overall appearance and smell of this hotel makes it quite difficult to get comfortable. I travel frequently to El Paso on business but will definitely not stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Natani Overall very good; just one major complaint
The staff here is great. Very professional and committed. The room was good. The breakfast service was above average for a HIE. My only complaint concerns the exercise room. The equipment there is scant--not a single free weight or any kind of weight machine-- and of poor quality. When you're working hard on the road, a good workout can make a big difference in the quality of a visit and the productivity of your work. This room badly needs an upgrade. I

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by UnhappyGuestoi Find another Hotel
I chose this hotel for the rate relative to the area. When I booked two rooms, I was told I could could check in at 5pm. I arrived at the hotel at 6:30pm - one room was ready and the second would not be ready for another hour. There was nothing they could do about it...even though the rooms had been booked a week earlier. My room was supposed to have a microwave but didn't. Staff offered to switch me to a new room on the second day but I did not want to cause a hastle. I booked a nonsmoking room and assumed the floor I was on was nonsmoking as well but the hallway smelled like cigarettes. I've stayed at several Holiday Inn Expresses and this was the worst one I have stayed at. I switched to another hotel after two nights which was cheaper with much nicer rooms and staff.
I will say that there was a man working at this hotel who cleaned the lobby and drove the shuttle and he was very nice. The fitness center was also nice with modern machinery and a TV.
It was not the front desk person's fault that the room wasn't ready. Whoever is in charge doesn't seem to be doing a very good job. I think the only reason this hotel will ever fill up is because of the area, not because of its quality. Research your options before booking a room here.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Enchantedplayroom ALWAYS stay at Holiday Inn Express
I've always had a good stay at Holiday Inn Express and this location was no exception. The rooms are so clean and it's a great price. They offer Military discounts, and I "believe" AAA discounts as well. (Although I'm not sure on the AAA)
The free breakfast was nice and in a lovely setting. Very lovely place to be, makes me feel safe and the cleanliness is comforting.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GMS2 Repeat visitor declining experience
This is my 4th stay at this hotel and its the lowest rating so far. To date my stays were uneventful with decent sleep and breakfast. It was everything I was looking for in a hotel and I usually use the pool. This stay was on the 9th floor. The hallway carpets and wall paint were dingy. The bed was lumpy and I accidently left behind my swim trunks. I called a day later and haven't received a return call from the hotel indicating if they've found them and if they can return them ($40/trunks). Needless to say, it's doubtful that I will be returning to the this location again. My experience was a 1.5, but I figured that putting a 2 star won't attract the attention from IHG.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by downloadAcar Good hotel, bad location
I liked this hotel, but it was far away from all of the places I needed to go. Since this was my first time in El Paso, it is my fault for not realizing the distance. Additionally, El Paso's road and highway system is not easy to navigate at first - or Google set me up for disaster.
The rooms were smaller than i was used to, but not tiny. Breakfast was great. We came late one day and someone refilled the pancake machine pretty close to the end of breakfast. They did it with a smile, which is always nice.
Staff was courteous and really friendly. I cannot say enough good things about them, especially the room cleaning staff.
Unfortunately, I would not stay here again now that I know where my wife's family lives, only because there are other IHG properties closer.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Julz13 Nice location and staff, uncomfortable bed
This hotel is a convenient location in downtown El Paso and the staff were friendly. There is a free shuttle service that will go to the airport. The room was clean and a nice size. The bed in my room had no support and sagged toward the middle of the bed. It was very uncomfortable. (The co-worker I was traveling with did not have this problem with her bed so maybe they are replacing the mattresses.) The free breakfast had both hot and cold choices along with fruits, pastries and yogurts and was good. I would recommend this hotel except for the poor condition of my bed.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by dinkyd Where's the eggs?
I love Holiday Inn Express. I love being an IHG rewards member. BUT was not recognized as one and check in was a tad tedious.
That being said, the #1 reason I love IHG is the good breakfast included in the price. In this case, there was none. At least nothing hot showed up 30 min after breakfast was to start. I was not alone pacing the breakfast area looking for something hot (besides packaged oatmeal or grits). So 45 min later, I left with a cold hard boiled egg, an apple and some luke warm coffee.
The room was good. bed comfy and even though I was near the elevator, it was quiet.

It was a wonderful hotel, cleanliness is a huge thing for me and this establishment was way beyond clean!! Breakfast was ok but the fake eggs were pretty nasty. Over all I recommend you stay here, great rooms great location and close to the American Consulate and the Mexican Consulate. We will be back not a doubt!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ECroft It's Downtown, but don't let that scare you!
Yes, this is not the newest property in the IHG portfolio, there are always consequences to this fact. The plumbing takes a little getting used to, it does fluctuate in temperature when a lot of people are showering. Yes there is an occasional odd smell, but it is El Paso and there are a lot of occasional odd smells when ever water is concerned. The rooms I've had are clean and well kept but the staff are the real stars here. They were always helpful and attentive regardless of the situation. They have warm cookies, soft drinks and nachos each week night. When large groups arrive, they make sure there is plenty of extra seating available for breakfast in anticipation of the inevitable rush. They even called us when we had packages delivered just in case we needed them.
Keep in mind that this facility is down town and that the majority of the businesses in walking distance are closed by 4pm. There are plenty of opportunities if you go a short drive north on Mesa for food and entertainment, the airport area is also within 10 minutes at most times of the day.
The bottom line is that considering the minor inconveniences, I just can't justify spending $30-40 extra a night to stay by the airport or by Sunland Park.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DanD Too many misses
I will start with the positive, the staff always had a smile and tried to fix issues as they were notified. The staff does get top remarks on from me. Internet connection was horrible and unable to video conference the entire week I was at this Hotel. Although i was on the 7th floor i only got decent connection from the 9th floor, enough to send a couple very short e-mails. The A/C had two seperate issues during my stay. First it was making a weird noise, then it wasnt cooling. When i called down to ask for a building engineer they sent up the shuttle driver. I was then provided with a box fan as he explained that the A/Cs don't work well and dont really cool off. Warm water was impossible to get at 05:30 am. it was either too cold or scalding hot. The TV was not receiving all the channels listed including not receiving HBO properly. Food options in close relation to the Hotel are non exsistant, but they do provide a shuttle. This property does not at all meeet up to what i've come to expect from Holiday Inn Express.

I was pleasantly surprised that I really enjoyed my stay at the Holiday Inn Express in El Paso. The staff was very friendly, the room was comfortable (although I would have liked it a tad bit cooler), and the breakfast was wonderful. Shuttle service to and from the airport in addition to local restaurants was definitely a bonus!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HTMac Solid Location for Downtown Business
Great Staff and customer service. Location is ideal for downtown business activities. Rooms are typical HI and clean, comfortable and generally quiet - though you do get a bit of noise from hallway traffic, but not so adjoining rooms.
Enjoyed the chips and cold beverages in the eve. Breakfast was very basic, maybe even under represented. Standard fare overall.
For those that require an internet connection - stay away from the outer rooms. Had a great room on the 4th floor at the end of the building, but could not maintain an internet connection on any of the several routers. Was accommodated to another room more towards the center of the building and was able to connect and work. Great speed, but dropped on occasion.
Dining options within walking distance are limited - recommend a rental car and go explore!
Solid option for downtown and will return.
