The hotel itself is very nice. Its conveniently located, as well. When I checked in there were two staff members behind the desk. I stood there confused for a moment because they did not even acknowledge me. When they finally helped me they were clearly not worried about customer service, and I am pretty sure one of the people was... More

Hotel is nice and clean. Staff very friendly. Down side is the breakfast is not served until 6 a.m. and on a business trip and needed to be on the road by 5:30. Rooms were clean and quiet. Housekeeping very good. Elevator very slow. Better to walk up the stairs.

We have stayed at hundreds of hotels over the last few years. This is a good hotel but in a less than stellar neighborhood. The positives: clean fresh smelling hotel property and room, good standard breakfast and bright clean breakfast room, comfortable bed, good a/c, bright well lighted hallways, good elevator but they need to replace the elevator's dirty flooring,...

Great stay. Valorie provided excellent customer service. She is nice, helpful and knowledgeable. I only have high praise for her work ethic. The room was clean. I also appreciated the quietness of this location. I will definitely stay at this hotel again. A big THANK YOU to Ms. Valorie.

I just paid almost $500 to be woken up 2 days in a row before 9 am. When I complained to the front desk, they said it was not possible since housekeeping is not allowed to punch in before 9 am. The second day, I received a knock at 8:50, opened the door and clearly saw a HIE housekeeping member... More

The hotel is conveniently located near the freeway and fast food joints. The lobby and dining area is clean and inviting. There is also a mini market area in the lobby to buy snacks if you have forgotten something or feeling too lazy to go to the store. A small coin operated laundry room is available downstairs and so is... More

Beautiful modern hotel. Wonderful rooms - very spacious. Friendly staff. The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is because the area isn't the best. But everything that was under the control of the hotel management was flawless.

Nice, clean, modern and new hotel with friendly and accommodating staff. Also has a pool and sauna area, free coffee and coffeemaker in rooms, and free breakfast and snacks in lobby area. Location is an easy drive to Monterrey. Will stay again when I am in the Salinas/Monterrey area.
