We stayed at the Echo for 2 months and it was a place I would recommend to all.We had family and friends at the trailer park and were able to participate in the activities with them. It is located 1/2 hour drive from New Progresso Mexico where we parked on the US side for a $2 daily fee and walked... More

We booked a block of rooms for family and friends visiting from out of town. The hotel showed us some rooms that were very nice on the outside of hotel. They assured us the rooms provides to our guest would be on the outside, not in the building itself. Unfortunately, I had several family/friends with a terrible experience: One family... More

Traveled with my wife and silky terrier on a quick one-nighter. This is a historic building in a city once known as an "All-America City" recipient. As natives who have moved away, this is a favorite of ours. The "outside-facing" rooms are very comfortable and recent re-modeling project has replaced all AC's. Best of all, guests receive a free welcome... More

For it being in business for 50 some years, I have to say I was very pleased with my stay. The rooms are newly renovated, and the location is nice. I stayed in a junior suite, so it wasn't in the actual hotel but on the ground level next to the pool. Breakfast in the morning is delicious. They give... More

This is a very old hotel. Carpet was extremely stained. Restroom needed repairing. We asked for a non-smoking room but stench of cigarette very strong. We were given 2complimentary coupons for free drinks but couldn't use on account there was a party scheduled for outside guests only. We were given a room behind the hotel where it was pretty dark.... More

Everything's bigger in Texas and this motel was built in the height of mid century modern design where buildings were spread out low slung and spacious. This place is unpretentious and great for families. Rooms are large with exposed brick, beds comfortable, a/c quiet. There is a big courtyard with pool (mostly shallow for kids). Price is so reasonable, plus... More

Eighteen miles north of the Mexican border, is the city of Edinburg, and the location of the “Echo Hotel.” Located across from the public library, the hotel is set back a good distance from the road avoiding any traffic noise. There’s a variety of room styles and prices to choose from which of course I chose the cheapest. From the... More

I felt like I stepped back in time. This charismatic hotel was built in the late 1950’s and has maintained its charm. Upon check in by Joe we immediately felt welcome. He offered us advice on things to see and do and recommended great birding spots. Many employees have worked here for years and their pride and loyalty to the... More

The staff, the daily buffets, and the coupons given at check-in make this property an extended stay type of property. To fully enjoy the ammenties you must stay a few days to enjoy the food and the bar entertainment. It is across from the police station and one the main street to the courthouse but otherwise than that it is... More
