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.

Nice clean room and friendly staff.

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
I had to stay for business and the hotel was perfectly located downtown close to my office. The room was nice and quiet, even though the hotel is located just off of I-10. It was a great experience.

Very nice staff.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, no charge for crib
The staff were really attentive. I requested a crib very late at night but they were very nice about it and brought it to my room immediately. We had a good view and the room was very comfortable.

Holiday Inn Express El Paso Downtown

This hotel appears to have been recently updated. The rooms were clean and the overall property was well maintained. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is located very close to the freeway so there is some noise but that is to be expected. The breakfast was fantastic and offered a great variety of choices that was well beyond any continental breakfast I have ever experienced, I especially liked the cinnamon rolls. We received a welcome gift which was a nice touch. The hotel also offered complimentary afternoon snacks and soft drinks which was nice. I would easily stay here again

Wonderful!!

Our stay at Holiday Inn Express Central couldn't have been better. The room was clean and comfortable. The bed was AMAZINGLY comfortable. The staff were friendly and courteous answered all of our questions that we had about the area and places of interest. I would recommend this Holiday Inn Express to anyone who asked.

Good for business stay

The location is great for a business trip as it is in the heart of downtown.\nThe only bad thing is the parking lot is limited and in front of the hotel between 2 busy streets. It is well lit, but still, it leaves you with a vulernable, exposed feeling re leaving your vehicle there overnight.
