Dear Wanda. Your review made our day!! Thank you!! Although we are very excited about our ongoing renovation, knowing that soon all our guests will experience new rooms, new TVs, new furniture and new just about everything, we do understand that at the same time a Hotel in renovation stage can be quite uncomfortable and unpleasant at times. Therefore, receiving a review like yours acknowledging our location and staff is highly satisfying. Come back soon so you can experience the NEW Holiday Inn Express El Paso Downtown.

This property is in need of repair, which I understand they are about to do. No ice machines on the floor. Had to go during breakfast time to get ice.

Doggy Friendly but location iffy.

Pros: Doggy friendly. Convenient location.
Cons: Nicer area for the dogs to do "their business".
Location: Location is ok buy would need to be based on an individual's travel itinerary. You really need to drive a ways to get dinner.
We stayed here on our return from Phoenix during a Christmas vacation. As described by some others, the location appears to be in a bit of an "iffy" portion of town however, the parking is well lit and security seems to be ok. As with all La Quinta's, they welcomed our 155 lb Great Dane and although we were on an upper floor, its really didn't matter. The downside from a dog perspective is that there is only a small patch of scrub for conducting "business". Also, you really need to drive a ways to get a good meal. The breakfast was typical La Quinta but it was a bit better in my opinion. All in all, its a good hotel in a convenient location at a reasonable price for value.

Nice hotel close to Convention Center

Pros: Could not beat the great hotel staff.
Location: We were in El Paso for the Open Championship Bowling Tournament and the proximity was great, 6 blocks so very walkable.
A very well kept older hotel, close proximity to the Convention Center, staff could not have been more helpful or pleasant. The manager was always around and willing to answer any questions and provide service. The neighborhood was safe and clean only downside was there wasn't much to do close to the hotel so if you are going to be there for any amount of time you will want to rent a car to get to other places. Great breakfast in the morning too.
