A very clean and convenient motel. Small rooms with a lot of features such as free high speed internet, microwave, refridgerator, and a lot of cable channels. Price is at the higher end for this type of property. Continental breakfast is good and well stocked.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights whilst travelling round California. For the money the hotel is excellent and although of motel-style, the bedrooms and bathrooms are of a very high quality. We had absolutely no complaints with the accommodation which was modern, clean and beautifully decorated. There was an outdoor pool which we didn't use as it... More

Our family stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for 4 nights in August. This is definitely a better than average Holiday Inn Express. The rooms were located away from the road in the trees and looked like they had been recently renovated. They are a good size, with a very nice bathroom but beware the double beds are tiny, which...

We stayed here four nights and overall it was fine. The hotel is centrally located just a short walk from Stateline and very close to a large supermarket and several good restaurants. Rooms have been recently updated and adhere to the current high standard of most of the other properties in the chain. We got alot of use out of... More

When I entered room 421 I thought, wow, nice big room! But then I went to open the window and there were no screens. This meant I was going to have to leave on the NOISY air conditioner right next to the bed. The next problem was finding a outlet/plug for the iron they thoughtfully provide. My options were to...

The term "Express" in the name of this Hotel made me think it was a downgraded version of a regular Holiday Inn but it was quite the opposite. I was very pleased with how clean, modern, and well run this hotel was. There were two helpfull people working the desk who were friendly and quick to get us checked in.... More

My husband and I stayed here for a wedding we attended in the area July 5-8, 2007. After reading the TripAdvisor reviews online we booked here and were not disappointed (especially for the class of hotel this is).

After reading some good reviews online, I booked this hotel for my trip to lake Tahoe. It turned out to be a terrible stay! First of all, the front desk lady was unbelievable rude. When we had a unpleasant night the first night because of the street noise, we politely asked for a room change for the following two nights.... More
