“Very nice hotel on the north side of Odessa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

We were very impressed with this hotel and would have given it top rating of 5 if it wasn't for the loud humming of the refrigerator unit in our room ( and yes we unplugged it ). The hotel is on a main road to Midland and it right by UT Permian Basin and Prairie Dog Town (across from Chili's). There are a lot of restaurants to choose from in the area. The room was spacious and clean with extra pillows. The hotel is set back from the road so it was very quiet. The bar was doing a brisk business. We had a nice breakfast there also.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2011

Stayed here one night while in town on business. This is a fairly new hotel - typical new Holiday Inn design, etc. Everything throughout the hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly. The room was spacious with very good internet service and good television channel choices. The bathroom was very clean and everything was in good working order.

The pool is pretty small and the hot tub was not very hot - the only real negatives I found. I didn't eat in the restaurant - try Mi Piaci Italian restaurant, just a few miles away.

Be aware that you may have to arrange airport transportation 24 hours in advance, but it is complimentary.

I will likely stay here in the future and recommend it. This is probably one of the best 2 or 3 hotels in Odessa.

Stayed here a night in July when I had to catch a flight the next day. The hotel is somewhat new, maybe three years old, so everything is still new and fresh. Our room was quiet. It had a mini-fridge and microwave. The in-room coffee was not very good. The service was good - no complaints. The room decor was fine, but plain and bland. They have a small outdoor pool, and sundires shop with snacks and ice cream, and an in-house restaurant and bar We did not eat their but it appeared to be a normal menu (Bar food - pizza, burgers, sandwiches, etc). It was a weekend and there were almost never any customers in the restaurant. There are several chain restaurants and big box stores within 1/2 to 3/4 mile. We did get a good weekend rate, but the weekday business rate would be too high. They do NOT provide a complimentary breakfast as they want you to eat in their restaurant on site. We have also stayed at the HI Express about one mile away and found it to be a much better value, its newer and they have the complimentary breakfast (we get more use out of that than a bar with bar food). My only complaint was their entrance drive way is horrible to get in and out of. Its even hard to find. Very poor planning and signage. We found it much easier to drive through the parking lot of a gas station and cut across a car dealership lot to get into the hotel. The entrance driveway is awful. Overall a fine normal hotel stay since we got a good rate. I would grumble if I had to have paid the full rate.

No Coffee in the morning nor was the resturant open till 7 am they said due to CUT BACKS by the owner. Guess he does not want any customers, then you dont need coffee. Rude at the desk and since I'm a platinum member Priorty club, I was told there may not be a room even that it was booked 4 days in advance. Crappy 'est Hotel and I will never bring business here ever again!!!!!!!!!

I have just recently started staying in Odessa every week. This is my second week. Last week they lost my reservation and I stayed down the road at the La Quinta for $20.00 per night cheaper. Brand new facility.
Willing to give them a second chance, I made a reservation last week for this week. I reserved a king room and received a confirmation for it. Upon arrival I was informed that they did not have a king room but they did have a double. I asked about my confirmation and they said I reserved a double.
What good does it do to try to be loyal to HI and rack up over 100,000 points to become a platinum member and supposedly get upgrades. I get down grades. Front desk staff, including manager, was rude and offered no assistance.
THEN THEY HAD THE NERVE TO ASK IF I WOULD LIKE ANOTHER ROOM FOR NEXT WEEK.
WHERE HAS THE OLD HOLIDAY INN SERVICE GONE? NOW YOU ARE JUST A NUMBER TO THEM. AT $139.00 PER NIGHT FOR ODESSA, TX YOU WOULD EXPECT SOME COMMON COURTESY.

I do not get it...this is a great spot...awesome staff...well kept...WHY doesn't H Inn offer java in the lobby?? Room coffee is horrific...and everyday I encountered guests, like myself...driving elsewhere to get a decent cup and boycotting the in-house restaurant because it irritated us...its just coffee...brew some...and put a smile on your patrons face...hint...do like other hoteliers...offer it IN or NEAR the eatery...and myself and others will improve your foodsales...otherwise...I loved the place...

I chose this hotel for my driving trip from Dallas to Phoenix. It was very secure, clean and offered nice amenities. As a solo female traveler, I felt very safe. The property was very clean and the rooms were very comfortable. It is important to me to have a quiet room, I did not hear a sound all evening. Room service was a little slow but the food was good quality. In a small town this was a gem of a hotel.
