“Wife and I really liked this place. Not new, but nice.”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

Bathroom is only 5' x 5' just enough room for a toilet and shower. That doesn't really bother me - the room was large. It's an older property, but they are not letting it go downhill and I saw maintenance working round the clock on various tasks. Water pressure was a little aggresive, shower kind of hurt. You are several miles from downtown, but near good shopping and eating. We ate dinner at their restaurant. Food isn't awesome, but price is good. They have a good breakfast buffet for about $11. Very nice workout room. Rooms have outside entrances which we normally don't like, but wasn't an issue - felt safe. Long way from the parking lot to the room, so hauling luggage can be a challenge. We stayed the previous week in El Paso at a Comfort Inn/Suites which was ranked much higher at the time - this was a better overall experience.

Thank you for your review! Yes, our hotel is unique, but have found that guests do enjoy the "Villa style" layout. Our employees do work very hard everyday to ensure the grounds and rooms are kept clean and maintained - so thank you for noticing that. I will share your review with all of our Team members at our next Employee Luncheon, and I know they will appreciate it.
We look forward to seeing you again in the near future, and if I can ever be of any assistance, please feel free to contact me personally!

Sincerely,

Robin Pence - GM

This Holiday Inn is not fancy but clean and home like.The staff go out of their way to make your stay comfortable.Free shuttle to and from airport and within 7 miles of hotel. Huge kudos' to Pauline and Margaret, front desk. More training needed for new front desk employee's. Restaurant fairly good for breakfast, usually empty for dinner; but more than happy to accommodate your needs. Pillows awful and staff does not seem to know on their hotel TV channel they offer about 6 different types.Our family stays here as close to our Father. There was a problem with a male shuttle driver for his in-appropriate behavior which was reported to corporate HR and the general manager of hotel. Also, problems with having rooms cleaned and when reported to front desk, told it was too late to clean! I will stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms away from elevator and close to lobby. Little or no handicap facilities.

While me and my family were traveling through the pan handel of Texas, about half way from our trip from San Diego and SPI we had our vehicle break down off the 10 and were stranded for two days while the vehicle got fixed. During our stay we where accommodated very well from room service and the free shuttle that took us where ever we needed to go and also we were picked up in a timely manner when we called to be picked back up. Ask for Corina and Joey they where on duty both nights and where very helpful in our stay they even turned the Hot tub on so my family could enjoy the pool during the cold part of year. As well as the bar was open late in the lobby and the bar tender George was the nicest man ever and keep our glasses full all night and at a fair price as well. We plan on stopping and staying for rest half way for ours trips from now on!

We stayed here the evening of the Sunland Derby and cannot say enough about the great staff. The front desk employees are delightful,Lorenzo, the shuttle driver is so pleasant and informative and Luis Z, our server at breakfast, could not do enough to make sure we had a good start to our day. The rooms are comfortable and even housekeeping went out of their way to locate a tea to our liking. The only complaint was an extremely long wait to be seated for dinner on Sunday evening and to place our order. We ended up calling a pizza place that told us we could not have delivery for an hour and a half. The pizza arrived before we were served our (very good) Cesar salad in the dining room. We watched other couples give up and leave.

This is not the newest or the most luxurious hotel by a LONGSHOT. But, it's attractive, comfortable, and roomy. I found the staff to be very friendly, and the grounds are well maintained. The beds and pillows aren't great, but their okay. The bathrooms are small, and there's no enclosed closet- and older style hotel. But, in it's day it was excellent, and it's still very nice. Much less costly than other El Paso hotels- this is definitely where i will stay when in El Paso from now on.

My friend and I were on a road trip to Los Angeles and needed a place to crash. We Pricelined a place in the El Paso/Sundland area and got this Holiday Inn. The front desk person was extremely nice and gave us a great two bedroom room. The hotel grounds almost look like it was once an apartment complex... definitely an odd layout for a Holiday Inn. Everything was great about our stay except for one thing... the pillows. The pillows on the beds are horrible. They are like tiny little marshmallows from hell. I woke up with a lot of neck pain. If you have any reservations about staying here I would say don't worry about it. It's great for a night or two stay. I'd definitely recommend this place if you are passing through and on a road trip... especially because it's right off I-10.
