The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean. There is a Taco shop (El Gordo), within walking distance. This hotel is also .7 miles away from mercado Hidalgo. It is two blocks away also from the bus terminal that drives you back to the border. Unbeatable price if you just need a place to stay the night.

It's cheap and cheerful. It does what it says on the box - provides a clean bed and shower and it's in an excellent location. I'd recommend it. Good access to the carnage in the bars, if that's what you're after.

Checked in with a service animal and payed a deposit. No damage no noise and no mess and after being assured the deposit will be returned, on check out the deposit is now a charge? Dishonesty and deception. The manager pictured threatened to call the police when I requested information on why the staff lied/misinformed me on check in. I...

This place was clean enough. First they put us in a corner room with zero windows. They switched us to the room at the end on top floor which seemed like a no brainer but then we figured it out. It seemed great at first but then discovered the tv volume ever so slowly got louder until it was unbearable...
