Unfortunately our visit was not for a vacation. We booked at the Holiday Inn Express as it seemed like one of the nicer places to stay in the area. Besides our first attempt to check in, we were not disappointed. When we initially arrived about 1 pm on Thursday 05/11/17 the gentleman at the counter was very rude and seemed...

Stayed for two nights while we went to Mexico. The front desk was very friendly and helpful, getting us whatever we needed. The breakfast was awesome! My son actually was very impressed. We usually stay at Best Western, but their elevator was broken and there was no way us being seniors with health problems we could carry our luggage down...

The front desk staff was very accommodating in helping us find a place to leave our truck and trailer for a week while we traveled through Baja.

The hotel is undergoing renovations. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The carpet was in need of replacement. The bathroom was new and the countertops and faucet new. Good water pressure in the shower. The breakfast room is large and a good assortment of food, hot and cold. The tables were clean and the coffee was hot.
