Nice area, hotel ok, used to be better

Reviewed 1 february, 2020

Nice area, hotel ok, used to be better, specially breakfast buffet with local food . Kind of expensive for what they offer. Better options very close with similar prices. Walk around in Paseo Montejo avenue.


For a savvy, well-located, tourist stay...

Pragmatism and good location are this hotel’s main features, for better or worse, especially when it comes to pragmatism. I’ll start with the location of the property: If you’re a tourist in Merida there is hardly a better location to choose from. Yes, there is a new business and shopping district up north of the city, but if you are in town for experiencing and living its true spirit, then the Montejo area is the place to stay at. This hotel is within a comfortable walking distance from high-end restaurants and cheap eats, local and international coffee shops, pubs and bars, gallerias and shops. And if you’re a more fitted person, you can even make it to the historic district where another good amount of restaurants, coffee shops, brew houses, and tourist spots lay. Plus, do not forget that Paseo Montejo itself is an area worth strolling around. Now, when it comes to the pragmatic part of the story, there are pros and cons. On the PROS side the price should definitely be a highlight. Price per night at Holiday Inn Merida is significantly cheaper compared to neighboring hotels. The area used to be upscale a while ago and you can tell by the surrounding brands. However though, new, perkier, more appealing, and equally economic hotels have recently arrived to the area, so you (as well as Holiday Inn Merida) might want to keep an eye on those. On the CONS side, this property is so pragmatic you should see it as a place where to spend the night only. This is certainly not the kind of property enjoyable by itself. If you choose to stay here is because you’ll spend all day out and will be back for sleeping and showering only, meaning: do not venture into the restaurants, expect nothing even close to a sophisticated bar scene, and do not think of the pool as a vacation cliché. And in more general aspects such as décor, ambiance, appeal, and so on, well, keep your bar low. A facelift is urgently needed! Finally, when it comes to accessibility this hotel is quite doable on wheelchair; nevertheless, its handicapped rooms (at least 308) are far from being fully wheelchair friendly, especially when it comes to the bathroom. Holiday Inn Merida must have clear that accessibility is not only about security grab-bars on every wall, which are needed indeed but also is needed enough space for a wheelchair to go in. In this case, the toilet and shower were hard to reach on a standard wheelchair because of the tightness of the bathroom, and it was not able to turn once inside. Without a doubt a sign of the years this hotel bears. As a wrap up, think of what you want a hotel in Merida for. If you’re planning in spending significant time within your chosen hotel premises, then go find something else. If you want to save some money on your stay while being in in the middle of what Merida truly is about, then Holiday Inn Merida is a good, clean, friendly, comfortable, welcoming, yet outdated, option.


Very pleased

Reviewed 11 august, 2019

I had no issues with my room, a/c worked great. Water temp and pressure were good in the shower. Bed was super comfortable. The staff is wonderful and friendly. And the breakfast was very good, much better than what you would find in an American Holiday Inn. It is so much nicer than any Holiday Inn in America, you would be pleasantly surprised! I also liked that it wasn’t in the city center as it was a little more quiet and peaceful. Yet, still close enough to walk to everything. Overall, I was very pleased and would stay here again.


Stay away if you are used to smoke free rooms

Reviewed 23 march, 2019

Checking in I was notified that my room was on the "smoking floor" (what hotel nowadays still have a smoking floor???) Of course I complaint, but I have been told that I never stated in the reservation that I would like a non-smoking room.... I felt like in the 70s... do you really have to state in the reservation at a Holiday Inn that you prefer a smoke free room, shouldn´t it be the other way around? I have been told that there was no other room available, so I tried to cancel the reservation, but it was prepaid (directly with Holiday Inn, so should´t it be possible in this case to cancel it???) So at the end I had to sleep on the smokers floor in a smoking room... the room smelled terrible and so smelled my clothes and myself afterwards.... besides the hotel is not bad, but come on this is 2019, smoking rooms should not be the standard.

While in Merida, I stayed at the Holiday Inn Merida for two nights. The room was lovely with balcony overlooking the courtyard. Ignacio, the desk clerk was most helpful and assisting me getting a ticket to the local bullfight. The breakfast buffet is sumptuous. Lots of choices, fresh fruit, a chef making omelets to order, and 4 kinds of fresh juices.
