Great stay. Valorie provided excellent customer service. She is nice, helpful and knowledgeable. I only have high praise for her work ethic. The room was clean. I also appreciated the quietness of this location. I will definitely stay at this hotel again. A big THANK YOU to Ms. Valorie.

I just paid almost $500 to be woken up 2 days in a row before 9 am. When I complained to the front desk, they said it was not possible since housekeeping is not allowed to punch in before 9 am. The second day, I received a knock at 8:50, opened the door and clearly saw a HIE housekeeping member...

The hotel is conveniently located near the freeway and fast food joints. The lobby and dining area is clean and inviting. There is also a mini market area in the lobby to buy snacks if you have forgotten something or feeling too lazy to go to the store. A small coin operated laundry room is available downstairs and so is...

Beautiful modern hotel. Wonderful rooms - very spacious. Friendly staff. The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is because the area isn't the best. But everything that was under the control of the hotel management was flawless.

Nice, clean, modern and new hotel with friendly and accommodating staff. Also has a pool and sauna area, free coffee and coffeemaker in rooms, and free breakfast and snacks in lobby area. Location is an easy drive to Monterrey. Will stay again when I am in the Salinas/Monterrey area.

This is a nice, modern and well kept Holiday Inn Express. Very clean facility and up to date comfortable rooms. I would be sure to stay here again when I am back in the area. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Just a straightforward hotel. Spacey, clean and convenient. Beds are great and the nights are relatively quiet. There is plenty of parking space, breakfast has the normal choice, but everything was fresh and tasty.

We stayed for two nights over a weekend at Holiday Inn Express in a room that we understand was an upgrade. We assume it was an upgrade because it was bigger, but its location was not the most quiet because it faced the loading area for the lobby so guests often revved their engines when the checked in. There were...

Overall, a clean & efficient hotel with modern amenities. One of the better hotels in town. Pros: Free Breakfast (Pancake machine is magic!), In & Out Burger down the street. Cons: Towels were a bit rough and could be softer/fluffier. Sports Center tuned on every TV.
