I used my points and stayed for free. It was conveniently located right next to an Applebee's, and a movie theatre. Very nice front desk staff, the Applebee's needs better customer service, but it was a very nice,clean hotel.

The best option if you're going to Mexicali on business. Clean and a restaurant right next door.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Calexico for two nights. The hotel is on the main road from El Centro and is in a very good location. There is a restaurant next door and another across the highway. There is also a Wal-Mart and general shopping area across the highway. Service was good and my room was well kept. The front desk staff was always friendly, mornings or evenings. On each of the two evenings we were there (and on the third as we picked up our car and left), the staff had prepared a simple but enjoyable early evening snack buffet. The third evening was a barbecue by the pool. This showed extra effort and attention by the staff. Combined with lovely April weather, this hotel was a very pleasant experience.

I'm a frequet visitor of Calexico/Mexicali. I have stayed at other Hotels in the Calexico/El Centro area and nothing compares to HIE. Their staff is the BEST!. Ana and Carlos are the Best! The fact that they know me by name, makes me feel right at home.

I travel every week and when I come to Calexico, I always stay at this hotel. No matter when I check in, the staff is friendly and professional. I don't feel like a number being shuffled to a room. The hotel is fairly new, or at least it's been there only a few years. It has been maintained well. If I encounter any problem, the staff responds immediately to resolve the problem. There is an Applebee's restaurant next door, so getting a quick bite to eat is convenient. The hotel also has quick access to Mexico (Mexicali), being only a couple of miles away.
