I'm in my hotel room now. The club next door has a banging soundsystem and.....I mean....its not like I'm in the club exactly but I could have a bit of a dance for sure. It's not so loud that I couldn't have a conversation over it, but it's too loud to go to sleep. Roll on 2am when Google tells me the club closes. Everything else about the hotel is fine. I find the existence of the hotel in this location very confusing.
The hotel was presented as a historic hotel in downtown El Paso. Historic must mean old rundown building with a few antiques scattered about. Booked this hotel based on the website photos. Photos can lie! The photo showing the king bed we had, does not show that is just two worn out twin beds pushed together with king bedding. Our historic shower provided us with less water pressure and flow than a WaterPik flosser. Finally let’s not forget the exercise equipment, multiple flights of steep steps to carry your luggage up and down, no working elevator. Pay attention to all reviews that mention the noise as the hotel is in a nightclub district, plus all the downtown city sounds. I felt just like I was in one of the nightclubs as we could clearly hear them as they counted down to Midnight New Year’s Eve 2019. As stated in many reviews there were only two parking spaces in front of the hotel building that were never empty during our stay. In one review the hotel states that there is street parking for $3 by the hotel, we never found it. All parking spaces are metered parking spaces that are active from 8:00am to 6:00pm M-S 4 hour limit, so set your alarm and avoid that ticket or take a walk to a not so nearby parking garage, but not $3 either. I did even considered find something better, but we stuck it out for the one night and treated it as a learning experience. What I learned “JUST DON’T DO IT!” …
You can actually feel the rooms shaking with the noise from a recently opened nihhtclub. Continued ill the early hours. Carpets and fittings very old and worn. No air con. Good location and friendly staff.
Spent a weekend here while visiting my boyfriend before he deployed to Djibouti. The receptionist, Ruby, was very kind and attentive. It was nice to be so close to the art and history museums and the streetcar line. The room was a little on the small side, as was the en suite washroom, but it is an older building. The downsides are the lack of parking and the noise from a nearby nightclub at night, but those are pretty much a given when you are staying in any downtown area.
Perfect location in downtown, near the I-10, near the EP streetcar, near restaurants. Built in the 1920s, it has been updated, so there is wifi in the rooms, a modernized bathroom, a flat tv. The furniture is old but nice; even the bed was quite good. But, the air conditioning in the hallway is terribly noisy, and late at night we had to call the clerk and to ask that it be turned off. We stayed 3 nights; and once there was loud music. Parking is inadequate, there are only two spots for free just outside on the street. Otherwise, metered parking, and for 3 days, not good... No breakfast included, though there is a kitchen in the basement. Staff very nice and friendly. We needed an extra blanket and an extra lamp, and got it immediately.
