I love the design of this hotel with the rooms around the outside of a well-kept and relaxing courtyard. The rooms were clean and quiet. Wish we had had time to relax around the pool and enjoy the atmosphere. The lobby is unique, painted like a street scene in France, very original! The room was really a great price for... More

We stay here approximately 9 times a year, the staff is incredible, very accommodating, the rooms are always spotless. Because of our experience here we have made Holiday Inn Express our Hotel for all our travels from California to Washington State. The staff in Santa Nella are the best, and the breakfast is incredible... Larry Vines

I booked a room at this property because I had points I could use for a free night. I agree with other reviewers that Santa Nella isn't much in and of itself but the Holiday Inn was just what we were needing--a place to stay the night on our way to Disneyland. It is conveniently located by gas stations and... More

Santa Nella is essentially a truck stop on the #5 freeway. The Hilton Express fits the bill for a one-night stay. The room was clean and not expensive and they are dog friendly. We walked the dog in a large field at the back of the hotel. Our room was on the back as well and very quiet.

My husband and I have stayed here 3 times already. We have a hunting dog being trained at feather ranch and the owner recommended it for when we come to work the dog and take her for an overnight. The rooms are very clean and beds comfy. The staff is gracious and helpful and we highly recommend it. They are... More

This was a typical Holiday Inn Express. Nothing outstanding. The town of Santa Nella appears to be mostly a stopover place for travelers, with a few hotels, truck stops, and Pea Soup Andersen's restaurant. Farm country, which was evident from the fragrance every time we went outside. It was clean and served our purpose adequately. Front desk staff very friendly... More

This is a property that was taken over by Holiday Inn Express (it must have been a while) from an existing property. It is not well maintained! The fire alarm was beeping outside (from low battery). We had a room in the back building and there are no windows in the back of the building and there are gates all... More

We stopped here because of the Holiday Inn name. Unfortunately, this establishment is not up to the standard we have experienced at other Holiday Inn Express. While the motel/hotel is older and most likely a make-over from another label, our room should not have had a distinct unpleasant stale odour. The bathroom is barely big enough. Were we not so...

Santa Nella is a great place to stop to break up your trip up-down I-5 . Nearly across the street from Anderson's Split Pea Restaraunt ( look for the windmill), Holiday Inn Express is convenient, reliable, and the staff friendly . Check-in was hassle free. It has a pool (closed in winter), and jacuzzi, and a little grassy play area... More
