Best Western Plus Monterrey Colon

Reviewed August 12, 2013

Monterrey is a nice place, but the neighborhood around Ave Colon is not a great place for international visitors. There aren't many restaurants or stores nearby, and security is an issue after dark. It's hard to find much fault with the hotel itself, because the staff was friendly and helpful, the room was clean, and the price was right. But honestly I'll probably choose a different hotel next time I visit Monterrey.

In general the hotel is not a good hotel amd the service is very unfriendly! Will never stay here again! Very unsafe part of Monterrey! Breakfast is just "fair" and room service is worthless! This is more a hotel for locals that use public transportation which has easy access to public transportation!

I stay at the hotel for a month because of work. Since I arrived the staff was very friendly, they always try to make anything I ask for. When I arrived they don't have rooms for the price the company paid, so, they gave me a Junior Suite without any problem.
The food of the restaurant is above excellent, delicious!
The bathrooms are very clean and the rooms are very clean too.
The only things that I didn't like was that the pool was like a fountain and that the rooms in the first floor in one side have a wall view.
And that one side of the hotel is VERY noisy because of the street.
And the area of the hotel is not very safety, you can't wak around in the night there. lol.
But if you are inside in a good room it's EXCELLENT

I stayed on the priority clubs' frequent guest program. The place was a-ok, really, with computers and complimentary guest washer/dryer. Breakfast was nice. Pool was about the size of a large hot tub, so it was substandard, and this building is not heated in its' courtyard area, which leads to the rooms, so it may be cold in December and January. The location is great for those who don't want to be downtown or in San Pedro and prefer to be near the central bus station. Good parking, outdoors and free.

My wife and I have never been to Monterrey. We have traveled to many different countries and cities though and stayed in many different hotels. The Holiday Inn Express is a great place to stay. The rooms are nice and clean. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful. We do not speak spanish and the hotel staff went out of there way to help us. We recommend this hotel to world travelers and first timers

Super hotel for a very reasonable price. Great chiliquiles and wonderful coffee for breakfast. They provided a car to take us to several locations. Very friendly folks. Now for the bad: the pool is small and the beds a bit hard. While in Monterrey we ate at Las Pampas(Argentinian steak house); El Gran Pastor for cabrito; and Anahua(Central location near the Micro Plaza - I think there are six of these in Monterrey) for fish. All were excellent. I've concluded there is no bad food in Monterrey. The city has several museums. We went to the glass museum at the glass factory, the Museo de Historia de Mexico, and the Fundidora. All worth a vist. I would love to spend at least another day at the Museum of the history of Mexico.

This is a great, clean hotel with reasonable rates. Room service was fantastic and reasonably priced. Try the Mariposa de Aguacate. I ate one per day while I was there. If you don't speak at least some Spanish, you might have some problems. The look on the staff's faces when they realized that I spoke Spanish (and they would not have to struggle with English) was one pure relief! Highly recommended!!
