Good location ,attentive staff, even tho it is a US chain it was not offensively so.

Excellent hotel, good location. Good breakfast. Hot tub was not hot.

I think my bed might have been infested with bugs I ended up with bugs bites all over my body

Everything was perfect except one thing. Some one took $300 U. S dollars from my purse. I notified them to let me know who went In the times we were there since my purse stayed at the hotel the whole time but they told me I couldn't get my money back. Hopefully this doesn't happen to anyone.

Great friendly staff, walking distance to everything, wonderful breakfast with fresh papaya and hot dishes every morning. Across from a city park. It was perfect for our sibling getaway.

Best breakfast. Carlos in the breakfast room is helpful and kind. Two kinds of real hot chocolate. Rooms are large with great beds. Luxurious bathroom. Easy walk to el centro and the action. Easy free parking. Easy access from the highway.

Quiet location, a short walk to shops and restaurants, but away from the noise of the city. A nice little park right outside the doors. The breakfast was excellent and varied each morning, and the hotel staff couldn't be more friendly and helpful.

I loved this hotel. It was modern and updated yet still had traditional Mexican touches. The service was excellent. The manager greeted me when I arrived and throughout my stay was constantly asking if I needed anything. He really cared that customers were satisfied. The location in Oaxaca was perfect--close to everything! The breakfast had everything I wanted. I loved this hotel. I immediately tried to book my next stay at this hotel but unfortunately it was already full for the holidays. Great value for your money. I highly recommend!

The staff was very helpful and the attention excellent. The hotel is centrally located, you can walk around to all places of interest and restaurants.

The location of the Holiday Inn is perfect -- a few blocks away from all the noise and crowds, but close enough to enjoy a pleasant walk after dinner returning to the hotel. The staff was amazing and helpful. The breakfast is first class. And do not forget Café Arabia, right around the corner for an afternoon coffee or just a snack by the park. Lovely!

The Hotel delivered as promised/expected. Cannot express anything different than gratitude and recognition to ALL STAFF, particularly Carlos, the Manager, who was on top of everything at all times (does he ever sleep?). At the hotel's lobby is a great travel agency that offers personalized/group tours to different nearby locations. Oaxaca is a wonderful place to visit; Hotel Holiday Inn Express is nicely located, only 6 blocks away from where all cultural activities occur at the Santo Domingo de Guzman exconvent and walkway, where most boutique hotels and stores are located.

The Hotel was a mini 5 star.. The staff was very kind and curtious. Our Spanish is very poor, but, we had very little trouble communicating and we never felt like we did not belong. We spent time touring Monte Alban, Churchs, local cultural/historical museums, and some amazing Art Gallerys. From the small street cafe to the upscale restaurant, the food was heaven on earth. The people made us feel like family.

Oaxaca is a fascinating, beautiful, and safe destination. Despite good reviews on line, I confess I had low expectations of this hotel, having stayed in some mediocre Holiday Inn Express properties in the US. However, the hotel was extremely comfortable, with a large room, great view, very comfortable bed, and an exceptionally well-organized and efficient manager and staff. Breakfasts (included in price) were fabulous. Both the manager and the staff went way out of their way on several occasions to help us. Neighborhood is extremely quiet and residential, with easy access (1-2 blocks) to small stores, an ATM, and an internet cafe. Fabulous tourist attractions, shopping, and 5-star restaurants like La Olla are only 5-6 blocks away. We also were extremely happy with the tour agency housed in the lobby, which offers amazingly cheap but very good group tours to Monte Alban and other attractions as well as private tours with car and guide/driver for about $10 US an hour. Only improvement we can think of would be small refrigerators in rooms. Overall, a terrific experience and a real bargain.

This is our third stay at this hotel and every time we have found it to be clean with friendly staff and just the right amount of services. The rooms have free wireless internet and a free brunch that is simple but good. Parking is easy if you drive a car - if you fly in and take a taxi, there are all sorts of things within walking distance and the main plaza is about a 20 min walk away. Have never had a problem at this hotel and would recommend it to anyone.

Very nice hotel away from the crowds at the Zocalo, north of the Zocalo.

We loved this place. At first we were looking for a more "local" place to stay, but chose this one as part of a package. We were blown away. The staff was helpful and very patient with my broken Spanish. We asked to be upgraded to a king size, which was done for us without hesitation or extra cost. The room (3rd floor) had a gorgeous view of the city and was far nicer than any of the hotels we visited in the States on this trip (even some 4-5 star ones). Marble showers, excellent cleaning services, plenty of space. And breakfast -- a great mix of local and American style food. Breakfast was fantastic -- best hotel breakfast hands down (scrambled eggs with chorizo sausage, tortillas, fresh fruit, pan dulce, juice, etc -- awesome!). About a ten minute walk to the center of town, markets, etc. Best deal for the money out there. Comfort, comfort, comfort!

Overall, not bad, but really not in the center of the historical section. Still about a 20 minute walk and in 85 degree heat, not pleasant. Pool was so small. Staff barely spoke English. Concierge nice but hardly any English. One day room was not made up by 1:30 p.m.

The Holiday Inn Express Oaxaca is excellent for both the business traveler and the person who is looking for some much needed comforts after staying in hostels, etc. I´m the latter and found this hotel a welcome relief after nights in the Yucatan jungle and small hotels in Chiapas. Having a nice warm shower, comfortable bed, spotless room, and air conditioning were really refreshing. The hotel is in a nice area with lots of medical and dental offices and a park, but still several blocks from the downtown (zocalo) area. The walk isn´t difficult, though. Also, the hotel offers a complimentary breakfast in the morning which has a small variety of foods that may get old after a couple days, but is enjoyable for brief stays. Nevertheless, there are plenty of good places to eat in Oaxaca and the city is fantastic! In the end, I really recommend staying at the Holiday Inn if you are in need of some of the comforts of home.

Easy walk to centro historico. Easy parking. Good breakfast, lots of good restaurants nearby. Perfect location!

The pool area is just beautiful and we really enjoyed our patio, too. The beds are hard, though, and the bathroom is not ventilated and very claustrophobic and dark. The lobby was really pretty and the hot breakfast bar was very good. It served yogurt, fruit, all sorts of baked goods, cereal, refried beans, chilaquiles, scrambled eggs, & bacon. Lots of juices, milk, coffee, tea. I think that was the best part. Don't let the travel agent in the lobby sell you any package tours. My advice is to take a bus or a cab and visit sites on your own.
