“If you're not a bowler, go somewhere else.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2010

This hotel has several glowing reviews recently by those attending the bowling tournament in El Paso. We were not attending the tournament, and see the hotel in quite a different light. While the hotel was clean, and included breakfast, and the staff were friendly - they were not exactly accommodating for us.

1) The free shuttle would only take us within a 1.5 mile radius, which doesn't include anywhere we wanted to go (hotel is in downtown). They would not take us to any shopping center or mall.
2) Had to get a Taxi (driver recommended by the Hotel) and the Taxi tried to overcharge us (arrived with $5 already on the meter).
3) Breakfast was low quality - cheap ingredients, poor taste. (We do not care for biscuits and gravy.)
4) Room was right next to a major highway, and it was difficult to sleep due to the traffic noise.
5) A/C ran constantly -- noisy window unit, and could not keep the room cool (this is mid-June).
6) Pool is located right next to the major freeway - and also in the blazing sun with no shade.

I don't doubt that the bowlers had a good time here at this hotel, but it's not for everyone, and if I ever return to El Paso I'll stay somewhere else.

First of all, I am always checking reviews, but hardly write any. I felt I needed to leave a review for this GREAT hotel. Prices are good, service was GREAT, beds were more comfortable than my bed at home!!! They also had a "Express Start Breakfast." Better than the cereal and donuts...they had biscuits and gravy both days we were there. The first day they also had Egg/Cheese omelettes and sausage patties, the second day they had scrambled eggs and bacon! It was SO good! If I return to El Paso, I will DEFINATELY stay here!

We were pleasantly thrilled with the way we were greeted and treated during our stay of five days .
The shuttle service to anywhere we wanted to go within a two mile radius was a great asset as we did not want to rent a car. The employess recommended several things for us to do as well as eating places. All of which were positive. They made our stay very enjoyable. If we are ever to return to El Paso, it would be our choice to stay there again.

This was the best hotel. We (12) stayed here while we bowled in the National Bowling Tournament. We were here 3 days. Everyone was great. Maria at the front desk was very nice. The breakfast lady was also very helpful and the breakfast was gooood. Rooms were good and we all slept good. Charles was very helpful with meeting our needs. Lovely, lovely!! Will recommend this hotel to friends and family. We were traveling from California and we are traveling onto Carlsbad today. Thank you very much.

Maria and the staff bent over backwards to accomodate us! Very friendly, courteous and helpful. Very Clean large rooms. Centerally located with a great free shuttle service. Breakfast was awesome. Bacon eggs sausage muffins cereal bagels + more. You cannot beat this hotel. Many bowlers were here just like us and they never tired of running us back and forth to the convention center.
