This newer hotel in west El Paso is just off interstate in a quiet area near the New Mexico border. You can always count on Holiday Inn Express for a quality experience, and this particular one won’t disappoint. Their suites can include two comfy queen beds and a full sleeper sofa in the adjacent sitting room, along with a modest kitchenette with mini-fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. Kids will love the heated indoor pool and hot tub. Other amenities include free Wi-Fi, fitness center, and the always reliable free hot breakfast that Holiday Inn Express does so well.
This Holiday Inn Express, one of several in El Paso, is located 20 miles from the airport, and about 10 miles from the downtown core. The hotel is within walking distance of several restaurants, including the well-known Rudy’s BBQ and Country Store, but other shopping centers are close by, including the Sunland Park Mall and The Outlet Shoppes at El Paso. Also nearby, a few miles across the border in neighboring New Mexico, is Western Playland, one of those classic thrill ride parks that thrive in the Southwest. Kids will love riding the roller coasters and vertigo-inducing spinning wheels. Thirty minutes from your hotel is the wonderful El Paso Zoo, with its nice mix of desert and exotic animals. The Holiday Inn Express, with its clean, contemporary rooms and reliable pool and breakfast, will make sure your family vacation to El Paso is a memorable one.

CLEAN, VERY Spacious Room (#424), a pretty good SHOWER FLOW (HIGHLY IMPORTANT FOR ME) + FRIENDLY STAFF!
According to one of the Receptionists, this hotel is about 9yrs old and due for renovation. In my opinion, it’s well kept for the amount of years it’s been in use!
I would definitely stay here again if I come back to El Paso.
PS - Washer ($2) + Dryer ($2) Available for Guests. Bring Quarters and Detergent or buy it at the Front Desk for $1.50 per Tide Box.
The hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly. We had no problems checking in or out.The room was big enough to accommodate my large family without us feeling cramped. Breakfast was hot and tasty.
