Stayed one night-mid week for business with collegues. Surprisingly nice. It was very clean throughout (we all checked our beds for bedbugs too being a little paranoid...). The breakfast was fine, no cook to order omelettes, but it is not that level of hotel so don't expect that. The happy hour food was substantial with both hot and cold selections.... More

This motel is fairly new, therefore very clean and well appointed. Very helpful front desk staff, gave us just the room (quiet, top floor) we wanted. Good breakfast in a very nice, open, airy dining room. We got a AAA price and, for the money, a terrific stay. If you have to stay in El Centro I would definitely recommend... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in El Centro for four nights. It was a very nice place and good to stay at the same property for several nights. The hot breakfast was excellent each morning and all the staff was extremely courteous. My one complaint is that despite placing the placard on the bed and my towels on... More

We stayed in the presidential suite with the kids in the adjoining double queen room ... even more beautiful than the gorgeous lobby! We were all suprised by the square footage and high end furnishings. The a/c units (yes 2 in the presidential and 1 in the adjoining) were on and the room was nicely cool even though it was... More
