Decent place to stay. Clean, safe, efficient, and they let you bring pets. Nothing special about it except for having three restaurants within 100 yards of it.. Nothing major wrong with it, either.
The breakfast was what I'd expect, except for one thing; they only had strawberry-flavored yogurt.
I wish it had been a bit cheaper. I paid just under $100 for the night. The night before I spent something like $70 at a La Quinta in the LA area. However, I probably will stay here again.

We paid $80 (AAA disc, including taxes) for a king room. Nice, clean room. Quiet in our 2nd floor room but we could hear the person above us walking around, so this building must not have concrete floors. Ask for a 4th-floor room if you want to avoid noise above you. Also, I recommend booking a room on the back side of the building because the view from floor 2 on up is quite pretty, particularly at night (lots of twinkling city lights). Its not as dramatic as the view from Griffith Park but the hotel is on a gentle hill so you're looking out over southwest El Paso and on into Mexico, with mountains as a backdrop.
If you get stuck with a room on the front side know that the hotel is separated from the IH10 freeway by an Applebees and parking lots so it's not as noisy as being right on a freeway. Speaking of parking, there's plenty, especially around back, with some opportunities for shade during part of the day.
There's an old asphalt running track directly behind the hotel so you can walk your dog in the neighborhood and yourself around the track, again benefiting from the hillside view of the city below. Google Maps will show you that the hotel backs up to a large residential area. Most of the small homes and xeriscaped yards are neat and have some character, there are sidewalks, and what few dogs we heard were in yards.
We've stayed at other LQ's in EP and I like this one the best. It's relatively close to the airport (though I don't think they offer rides to the airport like the "airport LQ"), and it's near lots of movie theaters, malls, the new Fountains shopping area, ice cream sources, etc. Our longest drive was maybe 20 minutes to go downtown to the Plaza Theater.
BTW, since we live in the outback of West Texas we buy provisions while in EP. That includes important stuff like ice cream. A while back we discovered that few grocery stores in EP sell dry ice, and more than once they were all out of stock. So it was a Godsend to discover Big Boys Concessions close to downtown and just a few blocks south of IH10. It's the least expensive source of dry ice I've ever seen, too. Google it.
