Staff was good, food not so much, rooms were average, hotel clean Posted Jun 12, 2012
I stayed at this hotel for 9 nights on a business trip. Having not mastered the Spanish language yet, it helped that the majority of the staff spoke English. The rooms were clean and what you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express. I found the bed to be a bit to hard for my liking, but this is common for most hotel chains I have stayed at. The hotel did have a breakfast buffet every morning. My biggest complaint was the breakfast was the same every morning. Overcooked bacon, ham lunch meat, scrambled eggs, refried beans, chips and salsa, some fruits and cereals. The milk was warm. After a few mornings the breakfast just got old. There was an Applebees attached to the hotel for other meals. I found the Applebees to be a big disappointment. The first night I had a pasta dish and the pasta was undercooked. I sent it back and the pasta was overcooked and mushy. Having been to Mexico before, eating at different places, and knowing what is available, it was a huge disappointment. The hamburgers and sandwiches were alright. I am one that likes to try different things when I am away from home. So I was looking for a little more local flavor. I did find this in Leon and Guanajuato which were both about a 30 minute ride fro this hotel. The hotel is fine if you are just looking for a place to stay in Silao. If you are also looking for more, I would recommend staying in Leon or Guanajuato. Silao is a small town and there is not a whole lot to do there. There is not much around the hotel. If you do stay here, I would recommend a room on the back side of the hotel. I had a room on the front side and there road noise from the highway could be non-stop at times.
