Friendly staff, clean rooms, comfortable. Good parking. Near the motorway but tucked behind some other buildings so road noise is not an issue. It's more straight forward than it is glamorous. I have used this hotel for business trips to Matamoros Mexico. Will use again, each time I'm I'm the area.

Hotel is in a great location and surrounded by great restaurants. The breakfast food was dried out and very stale. The bath tub was very old and worn out. The room was not very clean. This hotel has so much potential. Nice staff.

Room Tip: Check out room after checking in

Disappointing this time around. Check in was good but the bathroom had women’s hair in the tub and the floor. My pillow case and sheets had long hair on it too. I was tired from driving did not want to move rooms had to go the desk to get clean linen.

This hotel is located on a canal and has great views from the hotel. The breakfast was decent and the hotel staff is friendly. The room was clean, but very dark. There is not enough lighting in the room. Also, the outside spa was not working. When we complained to the hotel staff for the second time, we were told that the water in the spa was hot, but the jets were not working. This is not a spa......

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the canal. We booked a suite facing the canal and it was nice.

When we're traveling to new places without time to do any research and want the guarantee of a good night's sleep, an easy stay, we book HI Express. The bedding is excellent, the rooms comfortable and clean, the staff well-trained, accommodating and kind. The free breakfast usually has enough options that a healthy meal is possible. This HIE was one of the nicer ones we've stayed in with large public spaces, but the worst wifi of anyplace, anywhere we've ever stayed. We were rarely able to access the internet, and when we got on, the speed was so slow that we could only check mail and load text on one of our newspapers. One morning we found ourselves with lightning fast speed, but it lasted only half an hour. We were told it was because so many guests were accessing wifi, but the parking lot was only half full two of our four days. It might be the result of a local infrastructure problem, so maybe the staff should note that on check-in.
