“Poor Location”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We stayed at this Holiday Inn in early October. I was very disappointed with our experience. On the plus side... the free breakfast was handy (since there is not much near by) and it really had everything you needed. The rooms were nice which was a plus and it was easy to get to Gibraltar from this location. However, the customer service was poor in some ways.. we were missing towels and then girl said I had to come down to get them and no one could bring them up to me. Also to get to and from Algeciras was kind of expensive... I guess it depends on the holiday you are having. We are budget travellers and always try to take public transport so this was annoying for us. We had to pay $15-16 for a cab per direction to and from Algeciras. We only went in once to get to Morocco for the day but then also to get to the train station so $65 later in 2 days was kind of frustrating. We did the Morocco tour that the hotel offered. I wouldn't recommend it. Our guide was good and the tour was okay but I found we did alot more driving and walking than actual sight seeing and learning. Plus our tour consisted of both Spanish and English speakers (me and my boyfriend being the only two that spoke english) so the guide mostly spoke in spanish the whole time then gave us a shorter version in english... kind of annoying. If you have a car this hotel is pretty good considering its free parking and easy access to all the important areas... without a car.. I don't recommend it.

Room Tip: Our hotel was on the second floor right next to the elevator - it had free wifi even though they say...

We chose this hotel because it was very cheap (EUR 35 a night) and had free parking and breakfast. It was exactly what we were looking for.

It's in a big commercial estate with various superstores so only consider it if you have your own car. If you do, the hotel is very well located to explore Gibraltar, Tarifa and the whole area of the Campo de Gibraltar. The rooms are spacious and modern. Furniture and bathrooms are certainly not luxurious but they are new and clean.

Service was good. Easy check-in and check-out and knowledgeable receptionists which were able to advise on good restaurants to go to in the area. (In particular, Restaurant Aqua in La Linea is worth a visit!). Breakfast in the morning was simple and of average quality, but it was very convenient to have breakfast before setting off for the day.

Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel if you have a car and you are after a cheap, clean and modern place to stay for a night or two while visiting the Campo de Gibraltar.

We used this Holiday Inn as a base for driving to Gibraltar and as well to Tarifa to take the ferry to Morocco. As many here have said, this is not really a place to visit for its own sake, but if you're driving, this location was great. Easy access off the highway, grocery store nearby, a substantial breakfast buffet, and pleasant staff made for a good stay. The rooms aren't particularly large (especially if you're a family of four) but were sufficient for our needs. We were there for 3 nights in total, but checked out for a night as we were heading to Tangier for two days, and were returning to the Holiday Inn after. There was no problem with our leaving the majority of our luggage in the hotel so we didn't need to leave it in our car our drag it through Morocco.

My husband, 15 yr old son and myself stayed here in August 2012. Difficult to find with the Sat Nav although best advice find the cinema and McDonald's then head towards two very distinctive white towers. Hotel is new and very quiet location. We had a double room with the sofa bed made up. When we arrived we were missing a pillow for the extra bed, bath towels and the soap dispenser was empty. Within five minutes of asking we had everything. Staff are really friendly and the housekeeping staff although not english speaking were great. The room was obviously all newly furnished, light and airy. It had a hairdryer, long mirror beside the hairdryer and plenty of electrical sockets. There were tea and coffee making facilities in the room. The bathroom was lovely had great lighting for night time as well as day. Breakfast was ample, fresh croissants, fruit, cheese, meats, rolls, cereal and cake.
Plus points: Out of town, quiet location, 24km from Gibraltar so we could easily visit. Very friendly staff and lovely,clean rooms and foyer.
Minus points: Not enough parking for the hotel, ok now but when the area is more built up this may be a problem. The breakfast trays had been wiped with a smelly cloth and they did not smell nice, we stopped using the trays on the second day as the problem still persisted.
Finally we would happily stay here again the staff made us very welcome.

Room Tip: Location is good but you must have a car. Great to visit Gibraltar. I have only marked down on the c...

I have visted Algeciras recently and I have stayed at the hotel Holiday Inn Express , it s not located by the beach but the distances are about 30 minutes by car to the best beaches and why not a scape to Gibraltar ( dont forget your passport !!!!) if you are travelling by car ( parking is free at the hotel ), which makes a great election to choose because the hotel is great ., the price is very good related to the service ,and compaing it with the price of other hotels nearby ,remember its high season!!!
The service is excellent , the staff is so nice and friendly ,we met the director of the hotel having breakfast with the clients a couple of days and was asking everyone if our stay at the hotel was being fine, also you can have a chat with them at the bar at ngiht while you´re having a nice drink, they are always willing to help you and provide you whatever you may need .
Breakfast is more than good, it has everything you need , its got a nice variety of choices ,
And the staff is always taking care of what is over to replace it inmediatelly.
The room was exactlly how I like it , simply decorated but nothing is missing there ,
The bathroom very clean and you can tell the hotel is brand new in the furniture .
One simple advice, if you open the window the a/c will turn off inmediatelly , apparenlty it happens pretty often , just make sure that you close it properly again and the a/c will funtion back again .
Due to the location of the hotel , there is absolutelly silence during the night so sleeping is very pleasant
