We had a 6:30 am flight and wanted to stay near the airport. Couldn't have gotten much closer than the Microtel and the price was right. The staff was friendly. We were delighted to hear that the continental part of the breakfast opened at 4:00. The hot food came out as we were leaving at 4:30. We might have been able to stay a little longer, but we didn't know how long the lines would be at the airport. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. The walls are a bit thin, but our neighbors were asleep even before we were. We didn't hear anything out in the hall. While we could have walked to the airport, the shuttle is convenient and will operate at your request. We would stay at the Microtel next time we need to catch a flight at El Paso.
