    « Awful »

    We've stayed here once before and the hotel was great. (About 2 years ago) This time I was shocked at the condition of things. The room mattress was so bad I woke up with both shoulders and hips hurting. The noise was ridiculous with people and there kids talking loud through the hallways, letting doors slam all hours of the night and very early in the morning. Absolutely no hotel common courtesy at all. The bathrooms now have "dispensers" on the wall by the sink and in the shower with liquid soap lotion etc instead of the normal small bottles most hotels use. They were empty when we arrived. I have no idea what they put in them, so I went and purchased my own. This is a hygiene and health issue in my opinion. However nothing compares to the filthy, gray looking bath towels, hand towels etc, that are more like dish rags than towels. They looked like they'd been washed in dirty water. It was just disgusting. I will not stay here again. I will go further up the road and drive back to Clint before I stay here again. They need to go back to the standard hotel toiletries, but some new towels and WASH them properly and replace the mattresses and bedding.

    « Outstanding. »

    I loved staying here. I didn't want to leave. Warm, friendly staff, fantastic room, cozy bed, wonderful breakfast, scenic view, nearby restaurant. I look forward to going back someday, staying for a week and exploring the nearby wonders.

    « Unexpected trip »

    From start to finish staff was extremely pleasant. Was able to check in early with no problems and no fees. Breakfast was great and everything was nice and clean. I will stay here again if in the area.

    « Clean! »

    We just needed a quick overnight stay. We found the Best Western to be clean and easy to find. The room had an odd musty odor when we first walked in, but it wasn't bad nor did it last. The complimentary breakfast in the morning was standard, but good. Everything was warm, there was plenty of food, and the breakfast area was kept clean. Staff was friendly and warm (even at midnight)! There is also a restaurant next door, walking distance, though we didn't try it. Our friends ate there and they were satisfied. A good option for a quick stay.

    « Excellent Best Western »

    This Best Western is brand new and it is great. We really enjoyed the stay and we were very comfortable. We liked it so much that we drove an extra 3 hours to get back to this Hotel. We left San Antonio late and would not stay any where else. This is a great place to stay and the restaurant next store has great food.

    « EL PASO STAY »

    Great city; great hotel. I cannot think of any unsatisfactory experience. The company I was with helped my travels to be very enjoyable. The locals were friendly, non-judgmental. There is an abundance of places to eat with great variety. We only ate at Genghis Grill.

    « Great Service at Best Western »

    The staff was friendly and helpful. Clean environment! The rooms were very clean and inviting. Would definitely stay there again. The price was fitting for the overnight stay. I cannot believe the service I received from the front desk at such a late time.

    « Awesome »

    My visit to best western was awesome because the receptionist Linda made it very welcoming. She was very friendly and always smiling. I will be going there from now on because her customer service was amazing. Thank you best western!

    « El Paso Stay »

    We were very pleased with our stay at this best western. We were there for a semi pro football game and didn't spend much time at the hotel but the staff is friendly and accomidated our request for early check in and ground floor room. Breakfast was good and they had a good variety of food available.

    « Low Quality - Poor Service »

    The best thing I can say is that this hotel has a decent location east of El Paso but I don't recommend staying at it. The hotel looks like it has had a recent facelift but it was an economy priced one. When we arrived there was no one at the front desk. Even though the manager's office was right behind the desk and the door was wide open, the manager wouldn't get up off his behind until we stuck our head in the door and asked if there was anyone working the front desk. He finally came out to check us in. When we asked about parking our truck and trailer across three parking spaces he said it would be no problem - because they were not expecting many guests that night. We had requested a non-smoking room. This hotel has three floors and as it turns out it has four rooms on the third floor where smoking is allowed. With a not very busy night guess where the manager assigned us - yep, on the third floor AND in a room right across from the elevator so that we could listen to it "ding" all night long. We went down and requested a room change. Unfortunately nothing could be done for the stale smoke smell in the elevator from the smokers going up to their rooms. You'd think they would put the smoking rooms on the first floor at the far back so the smokers could go right out the back door and smoke. The stairwell also was stale from the smokers smoking in it. So when we checked in we asked when the breakfast was served and the manager confirmed that it was from 6am - 9am - the same as all the other hotels we've stayed in. As we had an early leave planned the next day, we got up, packed and headed down to the breakfast room at 6am. We were surprised to find the door locked and the room dark. The front desk clerk was again Missing In Action. We found her leaning on the railing outside the front door just staring off in the distance. When we asked about breakfast she said - "Oh no, the breakfast hours are from 7am to 10am." That was their third strike and they're out. We won't choose it again.

    « Decent place to stay »

    Decent place to stay on the outskirts of ElPaso. NO restaurants nearby. If you want dinner you will have to go into ElPaso. Had inside rooms which we wanted also. Breakfast was fair, scrambled eggs did not look that appetizing

    « Factual »

    Serious management problems. No sign of a manager day or night. Food preparation very poor. Checkout clerk also kitchen clerk. Neither function even close to satisfactory. Overall facility maintenance very poor. I have stayed her two times before and the quality has gone - completely gone.

    « Four Corners Trip »

    Excellent hotel. Warm and inviting with a very attentive staff. Nice Hotel is very clean, well maintained and a pleasant place to stay. The staff is well trained and execute customer service to a high degree.

    « Nice Place »

    This hotel is a welcome place to rest you head after a hard days travel/work. Friendly staff, very large rooms and very clean! This is not a luxury hotel, but it is very nice. It is located next to a few local amenities that a travel might need. If you find yourself this way it is worth it to stay here.

    « Open back door »

    Room was average in every way. Closet door did not work. I pointed out to the front desk clerk the broken lock on the back door. He would not call the repair person out to fix it. Check out lady handled the breakfast area as well. She provided excellent service.

    « Really nice hotel »

    The hotel itself is very clean and well maintained. The staff is friendly and helpful. There is an indoor pool in a billing across the parking lot. It is also very clean and has an assist lift for handicap access into the pool and the hot tub. There is a free continental breakfast as well.

    « Great hotel after a long drive »

    This was a very nice hotel. I would highly recommend it to anyone.The internet is password protected and fast. The room and bed were very comfortable. Everything was clean and updated. The breakfast was hot and plentiful. There is a convenient restaurant within walking distance but I would encourage you to find another one.

    « East El Paso in Clint, Texas Nice Welcome back to Texas »

    The East El Paso Best Western in Clint, Texas was a great way to come home to the Lone Star State. Starting with the friendly clerk at front desk, we were happy to be home. The room was cool and spacious, and we enjoyed the convenient guest laundry room where we washed and dried a week's worth of clothes from our trip to Arizona. Next door Tex/Mex restaurant was good, and next morning breakfast great with made-to-order omelets.

    « Great basic accommodation for what we needed »

    This was a 1 night stop over after our flight into El Paso from the UK. The room was clean and as expected. Everything was in working order. reception were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast in the morning was good, the kids loved the Texas waffles and the swimming pool was just want the kids needed after their flight!

    « Well situated »

    We stayed at this hotel in order to be close to the famous restaurant Cattleman's Steakhouse....we were satisfied to find a clean room and very polite and helpful attendants. We also appreciated the morning breakfast that was very good. Would stay there again anytime.

    « Riding a tandem bicycle on the southern tier route. »

    We like best westerns when traveling because most of them are nice. This BW was no exception. A few minor things, wfi was very slow, shampoo and soap were in dispenses on the wall, and we're not full, the coffee was extremely weak. I mentioned the weak coffee to t the desk clerk m and she replied, " that is the way it comes out of the pot"

    « recomend »

    Great lace to stay, clean, and orderly Good staff, laundry room a little dirty.(had to sweep it myself) but other than that. sleep was good and room comfy. Pretty handy to elpaso without the annoyance of heavy traffic

    « Sufficient »

    Efficient, friendly staff. Good breakfast with pastries, eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy. Clean, spacious room. Take a side trip to historic San Elizario, just minutes away. Easy access to interstate. Perfectly fine for overnight on road trip.

    « Best Western El Paso East »

    We spent three nights here and enjoyed the stay and all the employees were pleasant. Next door to this hotel we had excellent Mexican food too. my only complaint would be the powdered eggs, however the breakfast was a large enough selection that it didn't matter.

    « Awesome & awful - »

    No inbetween at this hotel. We got here at 8P and stayed one night, on the first floor. The awful: The floors are thin - we could hear the room upstairs walking across the floor. We could also hear their music. This review would have been 5 stars except for the morning desk. They have no business being in the hospitality industry. After breakfast, in a too small to accommodate more than 6 comfortably nook, I walked over to check out and tell them the AC didn't work and the guy tried to tell me "the air gets trapped in the curtain." Wrong answer. When I can't hear the fan OR the compressor come on, there is no air to trap. Guy next to me had issues with his AC to. There were 3 ppl standing at the desk - not one apologized for the discomfort. It was the lack of response and concern for the quality of our stay that made this a 3 star review. The good: the room was a great price for the location, size, comfort of the bed and amenities. The fitness area had excellent l, updated equipment and it was comfortable. The night clerk was exemplary - I wish I could give her a 5 star rating. She was helpful, kind and efficient. She was also friendly and when told of the music issue, she addressed it immediately. Management should consider discussing with the morning staff how to appropriately handle problems, I suggest having the night clerk show them how to be gracious. Would we stay here again? Likely. I hope they fix the AC issues before we make it back.

    « Weary Travelers Refreshed »

    Only stayed one night, but we were greeted by front desk person who could easily tell we were arriving late and were road weary. The gentleman helped get us to our room as quickly as possible and even helped with our bags. The property manager was welcoming and just as helpful. The building was secure and safe. Both men said to not hesitate to let them know if we needed anything during our stay. Customer service was over the top! The room was clean, the bed was comfortable and we woke refreshed. The breakfast room was clean. We were offered homemade salsa with our eggs. Yummy! If in this area, would certainly stay again at this hotel.

    « Road Trip Stay »

    This hotel was conveniently located near the highway. It was clean, comfortable and affordable. The front desk attendant was very helpful and friendly. It was extremely affordable, as well. I would definitely stay here again.

    « Sweet pool »

    Friendly staff that were helpful upon arrival. Room was large but pretty empty (not a big deal to me), with a flat screen and nice clean bathroom. Mini fridge and microwave, and A/C worked great. Pool was a solid 68 degrees and hot tub was warm and worked perfect. Both looked quite new and even had LED effects in them. Only con of the place was the third floor smelled like someone had just smoked a pack of cigarettes in the hallway even though the whole hotel in non smoking. Luckily my room didn't.

    « Great for a stopover »

    Stopped on our drive from California to Louisiana; outside of El Paso so less crowded. Older hotel but clean and with breakfast. Good restaurant next door. Wouldn't stay other than for a stopover, but it was perfect for that. wifi is ridiculously slow.

    « overnight in El Paso »

    I had actually stayed in this property several times before, but it was under another brand. I only stayed there after a long trip home from California and felt I would like to stay outside of the busy El Paso area on the way east. The hotel has been improved in décor and in the breakfast room offerings. The hotel has an elevator, which is nice for a 3 story building. It is near the interstate, but not next top it so it was very quiet and there is a very nice view of the city to the west down below.

    « Texas Time »

    A very nice motel with a very nice staff and room. It was right on the road to our destination and easy access. Resturaunts and fuel right next door. Handy. Quiet and restful sleeping time. we wre overall happy.

    « Great Value! »

    Clean, nice room, great breakfast, good price. East access to I-10. Would stay there again! It is located on the eastern side of El Paso which is what I was looking for since I was headed to Dallas and wanted to miss the traffic in El Paso.

    « Average - with potential »

    Overview: A large, clean room with modern furnishings (including a fridge and a microwave); large enough to accommodate a small dining table with 2 chairs (provided). The ?High-Speed Internet? was free but not very fast (I tried to check my email but gave up in frustration due to the slowness; I've had faster dial-up). There is sufficient space in the far corner opposite the flat-panel TV for a recliner or an overstuffed chair with an ottoman; too bad no one had thought of it. Layout/Design Flaws: The toilet paper dispenser on the wall behind and above toilet makes it almost impossible to reach from a sitting position. Bathroom exhaust fan (good) on the same switch as the bathroom lights (not good). Bathroom door opens into the smallish bathroom but could have easily been installed to open outward into the spacious guest room foyer. Wall décor is almost non-existent; two small (2' x 2 ½') abstract paintings. Spartan for such a large room. * Drapes are not light blocking so if you plan to sleep late, ask for a room facing the southwest. Bathroom: I appreciate the shampoo/conditioner/bath gel dispenser in the shower and the soap/lotion dispenser near the bathroom sink as I'm definitely in favor of eliminating the waste of slightly used soaps and paper which inevitably windup in our landfills (and drinking water). Bath towels were older, worn (in some cases threadbare), and rather dingy. The bathtub tile is attractive and the shower head was above average to the task. There was hot water on demand with good pressure. The drain plug was disconnected and left lopsided in the drain. Breakfast: Scheduled for 6:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. but by 8:00 a.m. out of some of the basics. Coffee more like broth or coffee-flavored water. No biscuits with ½ crock-pot of gravy. Orange juice watered down. Texas-shaped waffles are interesting. Scrambled eggs may be powdered. Over-ripe bananas. The only yogurt was the bland Activia (Dannon) brand. Honey buns (nice). Variety of cold cereals with milk, but I didn't see any hot cereals. Final Notes: Comfy beds with plenty of pillows. The small coffee pouch provided burst upon use dropping grounds into the cup below - that makes for a pretty gritty cup of cowboy coffee!

    « Expected More »

    A nice hotel if you only stay 1 night. We picked this hotel because it was close to where we needed to be and looked new. All we used the hotel for was to shower and sleep. If your going to stay for more than a night you may want to make sure housekeeping comes by.

    « Clint gets it right »

    Great value great experience great stay The hotel was great and had a nearby restaurant with a full bar that made the stay convenient and exceptional. So relaxing to have a great meal and a cocktail followed by a hot shower and a good nights rest to continue on the road, and in the middle of nowhere...who would have guessed.

    « Pleasantly Surprised »

    I haven't stayed at a BW property for dozens of years. I was heading home and wanted to visit Cattleman's Steakhouse on the way and found they were close, so took a chance and booked it. Asked for the quiet side which they accommodated. Large room, easy parking, free breakfast and Internet. What's not to love. Bed could have been a little more comfy, but then the price would have to be higher.

    « great location for passing through »

    just passing through el paso and choose a hotel near I-10. Staff at front desk were very helpful. the bed was great, and no road noise from I-10. Mexican food restaurant next door was very reasonable $$ and food was good.

    « Ok place for a stop over. »

    We stayed here for just one night while passing through. We had a two queen room, which was very large #201, and the beds were fine, the breakfast was usual waffle, sausage, breads etc. For the price, it was just fine, clean, friendly, easy off easy on, gas and convenience store right beside it.

    « Nice place to stop! »

    King room very spacious. Room clean and stay was quiet. Staff very helpful. Breakfast choices good and hot. Two restaurants within well lit walkway. Best of all just off I10 and outside of busy El Paso with good value for you money.

    « Good value »

    Very Clean and quiet. Quiet area south and east of El Paso. Hotel staff recommended good restaurant next door. Easy check-in, easy check-out. Located east of the busy El Paso area, but not too far out to be isolated. Nice clean breakfast area, good coffee. Had to leave very early, so did not take breakfast.

    « Stayed overnight on trip from Phoenix to San Antonio each way »

    Great experience. Room was great and service was great. Staff was friendly. Room was clean as would be expected at a Best Western. Room rate included a good breakfast. The view from our room overlooking El Paso was beautiful and panoramic. Great Mexican restaurant next to hotel; best Mexican food we have eaten and moderately priced.

    « Late night arrival, still welcomed warmly »

    My wife and I arrived late last night into El Paso from San Diego. As soon as we walked in the Best Western, the front desk clerks set about getting us checked in. We were given a huge suite with a king-sized bed. Although the neighbours were a bit rowdy, things settled down quickly. It was a peaceful night, followed by a more than adequate breakfast. Great value for what was essentially a quick stop-over.

    « Adequate and reasonably priced »

    This was a nice location just east of El Paso. The hotel staff was very accommodating and moved us when we had a problem with our room. The rooms are large, the beds comfortable, bathrooms updated and a full breakfast in the morning. Good spot when passing through El Paso.

    « Spartan but comfortable »

    The room, like the rest of this clean and comfortable place, was stark and without any "frills". As usual we were impressed with the courtesy of the staff and pleasant efficiency. The only real reason for just three circles was the virtually inedible breakfast, even with just basic fare. A lack of sufficient staffing appeared to be the reason for overcooked meat and pretend scrambled eggs just can't be good. Next time we are making a long trip, we may or may not stay here again. The beds were fine and climate control was accurate, and there are few choices in the area. You could do much worse.

    « Just OK »

    Chose hotel because of good review on trip advisor and wanted a hotel east of El Paso as I was driving from Dallas to Tucson. There is major road construction off interstate 10 to the though it is about 1/4 of a mile took over 12 minutes because of traffic. This hotel has THREE "Trip Advisor" decals on the front doors. Room was OK.... bed soft (as in all my reviews). Noise traveled into room..footsteps from above...but most annoyingly, every time a door closed....the bang shook the room. Bathroom extremely small...the length of the bathtub, the width of the toilet. I did not enjoy breakfast, but I did not have any of the hot things...they may be ok.... muffin I had was clearly stale. I purposely chose this hotel because I am on a trip and stayed at Fairfields, Hamptoms, Holiday Inn get it...budget hotels. I wanted to try a Best Western. I think I will stick with the others. BUT..... I encourage you to read the other reviews.

    « El Paso »

    The staff is very pleasant. Check in for us was easy. Breakfast was the standard Best Western, no frills but good. Near the freeway but noise was not a problem. Restaurant next door was recommended & was great food.

    « Good hotel »

    Check out was more difficult and time consuming because I asked to have an email with a proof of stay receipt. They would not do that. Carpets were needing to be vacuumed when I arrived. Breakfast was all bread type selections, and exactly the same each day.

    « Fantastic Experience »

    We made last minute reservations through one of the discount sites online. There was a problem with the reservation. Three of us, but it was for a king room. What could have been a disaster was rectified pretty quickly and easily by the front desk staff. The property was in great shape, including the lobby, breakfast area and rooms. The breakfast was really good for one that was included in the price.

    « Great Place to Relax »

    My husband and I highly recommend the Best Western East El Paso Inn, Clint TX. From the minute we walked through the door, you feel welcomed. it is very obvious the staff wants you there. The rooms were very nice and comfortable. Breakfast was great. We will go back.


    Excellent all the way around. Highly recommend this is the place to stay on the East Side of El Paso. Friendly Staff, Clean Rooms and Easy Access makes this a Great Choice. Make sure to use your Reward Points.

    I was disappointed in the room. We have stayed at best westerns and this was the worst. There was one room left when we got there. When we walked in our room it smelled like pee. It did not feel fresh at all. In the bathroom there was hair on the floor. It looked like when they mopped it they did not seek it first. Disgusting. I will give kudos to the breakfast and customer service was outstanding. Everyone was friendly. I will probably not stay at that particular one again.

    « Clean, Comfortable, Convenient ... but VERY unstable Internet ... »

    My wife and I spent just one night here on our drive from Austin, TX to Silver City, NM. The hotel is right off of I-10, convenient, clean and comfortable. The desk staff members were all very professional, friendly and helpful. Breakfast offered the usual range of items, including scrambled eggs, waffles, sausage, and oatmeal. We have just one complaint ... and one "odd" thing to share. First the odd tidbit ? whoever installed the toilet paper roll dispenser really should have had a seat before mounting the thing on the wall ? you have to be a contortionist to twist around and raise your arm up in a very uncomfortable stretch to reach it. VERY odd! The complaint is VERY serious. For whatever reasons, the internet connection dropped every few minutes and then restored itself within a minute or two. This was irritating when it came to checking email and surfing websites -- BUT it rendered Skype calls and watching streaming videos impossible. This issue simply MUST be fixed. So, overall, a great place to stay -- but if the internet is important to you, you might want to give them a call and get their assurance that things are working flawlessly.

    « Good Choice »

    My parents stayed at this hotel for over a month before it was a Best Western. During that month, I stayed there for 2 1-week stretches. The staff and the owner went out of their way to accommodate our needs. My stay last weekend was just as pleasant and the remodel, Best Western upgrade, is great. The rooms are large and the bed was very comfortable. I will stay there again.

    « A good value »

    This is a newly refurbished hotel everything is new looking. Rooms are comfortable, breakfast was a hot full breakfast. Walls are a little thin could hear the room next door talking on phone (I have poor hearing so when that happens you walls are thin) couldn't tell what they were saying. Desk lady was helpful.
