Clean hotel with average facilities, it offers a decent breakfast and minimum facilities, which in some cases is just what you need on a business trip. It has an excellent location, near several restaurants and stores. On the week of my visit there was a Tennis tournament nearby and the noise affect my sleep because they had a party all...

I stay at IHG properties a lot, and mainly at Holiday Inn Expresses when I travel domestically, and this property was very comparable. The staff, (though no one seemed to speak very much English at all), were very tentative, polite and helpful. They have a full-time security guard and they are located in a great shopping/dining center with nice choices...

Stayed for a couple of day for business trip. The hotel is clean but prices are high for what you get. There are several other negatives to the hotel. There is no place at all for parking and its very hard to sleep comfortably having music blaring outside until the late hours of the night. There are several businesses surrounding...

I stayed 2 nights at this hotel and it was a good experience, the rooms are clean and comfortable but small as you would expect from any other hotel from this chain. TV sets are small and outdated but work fine and AC units are noisy. In one of the rooms I stayed the sink was collecting water because a...

I was a little anxious having read the other comments here but when I arrived at City Express, Tampico my fears were all eliminated. The desk was efficient, the security guards friendly and between their attempts at English and mine in Spanish everything was fine. The internet is sometimes slow but I find that everywhere. The manager made no less...

This hotel is located near Applebees and across from Walmart however as a travel agent I would not recommend this hotel to my clients. The toilets smelled like sewer, they had no irons available even though it says just ask for irons if you need one, no hair dryers. The front desk could not answer several questions such as where...

The room was average but comfortable enough. Nice bright colors, but the internet service was terrible. There was no internet for 24 hours on 3 of the 10 days I stayed at City Express. No explanation for why it was not working nor any apologies from the front desk. for this inconvenience.
