I've traveled to Odessa frequently over the past years. I would recommend the Hilton Garden Inn. Having said that, I have attended company functions (under duress) at this hotel for many years--and it has gotten progressively worse. I've already decided to decline a 2013 invitation if it's held here. After reading other reviews, I have to wholeheartedly agree that this... More

First of all, we had reserved several rooms for several members of my wife's family, including us, to attend a HS graduation. Since we were reserving several rooms, we were given a special price of $99 for each room. Two weeks before the graduation, the hotel changed its mind and we all had to pay $170 each for the rooms.... More

We stayed at the Elegante for two nights in March because we stayed there years ago and enjoyed our visit. I should have looked at the most recent reviews! The entire hotel needs a facelift. My main issue, however, is poor service at the front desk. We couldn't find an ice bucket in the room, and when we asked for... More

You can't find a decent hotel for less than $200 per night in the Permian Basin, but as hotels go the Elegante is very nice. Nice updates in the rooms on the second floor. I've heard some other rooms are a bit more dated. Staff is efficient and pleasant.

I am in my room now. Waiting for someone to fix my shower so I have hot water. They do not have a buffet breakfast or a manager's reception. The bar was gross and the restaurant subpar. Every employee I have encountered so far has been totally unhelpful or unprofessional eventhough I have treated them all with respect. I tried... More

I've lived at the Elegante for a few months, and this place is horrible, even by Odessa standards. The keylocks on the back and sidedoors are never active, so anyone can (and does) come and go as they please. The whole hotel has a musty odor. If you are lucky, you might get a room with a new AC unit,... More

Understanding the boom and the difficulty in finding hotels, this is a nice change in the area, but still pretty from from rating it 4 out of 5. Restaurant is average, but several nice places in the area, bar is extremely smoky, but so is everything else in the area. Noisy from 530-630 in the morning as the trucks leave.

We stayed there twice - once before and once after flights from the Midland airport - and both visits were terrible. I have never experienced such uniformly poor service on such a consistent basis. With the oil boom, they don't have to be good to fill the rooms but if you have any choice in the matter, go somewhere else.

This hotel has a lot of deferred maintenance and needs an overhaul. Most of the place seems held together by quick fixes and not decent repairs. In my room there was a gaping hole in the shower surround, stained carpets, and a mattress that was bowl shaped. The service was average at best. While leaving for the day I notified... More

We stay at the MCM Elegante in Odessa every year for an event that we work at in November. There are a number of reasons we stay here, but the primary reason is how comfortable the beds are. When you have to spend an entire week at one hotel, it better be comfortable. I will say that you need to... More
