My family and I went to visit my parent in Calexico California two years ago on June 2012. We had such a great experience at the holiday Inn, that we decided to stay there again two weeks ago from June 2014/July 2014. One of the reason we stayed there again was due to the great hospitality and professionalism of your... More

Our experience at this location was GREAT. We stayed for three days. We got a room on the first floor, not far from the breakfast room. Our room was clean, the bed was comfortable but we needed more pillows. That is easy to request, we called the front desk and housekeeping got us what we needed. The King bedroom only... More

Great reception staff at the hotel. Bi-lingual. They had a soft bed, clean room and very convenient location. There is an Appleby's right next door (basicially same parking lot) and other restaurants within a couple of blocks. Recommend to anyone staying in Calexico.

I was "upgraded" to a smoking suite when my originally booked room was non-smoking. When I arrived there were no non-smoking rooms left. Not offered any sort of compensation at all. Stay at the Holiday Inn Express in El Centro instead, it's much nicer anyways.

Several things led me to the conclusion I will not stay here again, and I'll just list them. Mildewed shower curtain (really stinks), slow drains, short sheeted bed, leftovers from previous guests in the refrigerator, a broken-down cheap office chair, an old box of Fruity Pebbles behind the TV along with Styrofoam plates and bowls and dirty windows --- really...

We stay in many Holiday Inns around the USA on business. We usually are very happy with this chain. However this is certainly not a typical HIE. Its shabby and dated, the lady at reception wasn't at all helpful. We booked a non smoking room but when we were checking in we were told we had a smoking room and... More

Stayed one night for business as I had a meeting in Mexico the following morning, and this hotel seemed like a better alternative than staying in the not so nice areas of Mexico near the border. (Cancun it is not.) Standard, basic hotel; the look, the feel, the breakfast, but acceptable for a quick one night stay. The rooms felt... More

Warm and friendly staff, hot breakfast, free newspaper, and very clean rooms! My room and bathroom were cleaner than some of the higher end hotel rooms I have stayed in! Will definitely stay here again the next time I am in town for business.
