Holiday Inn is a known quantity. Everything works, nothing is extraordinary. I have been coming to Oaxaca for years and this is the first time I stay in a trans-national chain. I was not disappointed. The hotel is perfectly located. It doesn't have a restaurant (breakfast is served, and that's it--the coffee is mediocre), but in Oaxaca a hotel restaurant... More

We joined IHG before booking out stay and then used our number to get some rewards points. That aside it turned out to be a good thing as I will explain below. The staff was super friendly and helpful and they spoke English which was great for us since we do not speak Spanish enough to carry a conversation. Check... More

This hotel is much better in terms of rooms and ambience than the average Holiday Inn Express. We had a nice room, a King Bed Junior Suite which had an outdoor terrace that overlooked the pool. It was quite expensive for Mexico but was worth it. The hotel is about 15 minutes walk to the Zocalo but within 7 or... More

Very large comfortable rooms with quality linens and towels...Great wifi, and the staff is on the ball. The manager worked out a reservation issue with speed, a written apology, and great grace....I would highly recommended.

I am happy to echo all of the good comments, many of which led us to book our weeklong stay here. My wife and teenage daughter had a junior suite (second floor, even numbered side of the hall) and I had a double room (across the hall, odd numbered). Both were clean, well kept, incredibly comfortable, with good wi-fi (free... More

Holiday Inn chain is very large and I find it surprising when such a large company finds staff and managers that can function on a very personal level. The Holiday Inn Express in Oaxaca has a manager, Carlos Moguel, that has a great zeal for providing personalized attention to his guests. His seemingly routine inquiry of guests asking of their...

Good location and clean, comfortable rooms met what we were looking for. But the friendliness of the manager, Carlos, and his staff made the stay exceptional. Highly recommended as well as the overall Oaxaca experience that included excellent food and great sights.

By far the best Holiday Inn that I have stayed at in Mexico and the US. The staff and management are very nice and helpful. Actually Carlos the manager becomes a trusted friend for all recommendations. The breakfast is excellent, the room was very clean and comfortable. The value is excellent. I will be returning.
