Stayed here while travelling through. Reception good. Good size room, no microwave, flat screen tv, clock-radio. Breakfast good with coffee, juice, yogurt, milk, sweet rolls, egg omelet pucks, bacon, bisquit and gravy, toast, self pancakes, etc. 10 tables plus outside seating. An attendant was watching over and refilling continuously. Clean and neat. Worth staying with a travel coupon.

Nearby truck parking. Quiet comfortable room. Friendly staff, commercial driver rates lower than AAA. Nice, large pool, comfortable bed. Nice breakfast menu. I would suggest in the summer months, that maybe a few rooms be cooled below 78° in anticipation of some late check ins.

This is our second year staying at Holiday Inn Express Santa Nella on the way to Lake Tahoe. We have stayed at other hotels in the area but HIE is the better choice. The hotel is clean and quiet. The staff is friendly and helpful. It is reasonably priced and the perfect overnight stop. We did have some trouble connecting... More

This is a great place for a good night sleep in between travel days. There is not much in the town but it's all you need. Gas up, eat & a great night sleep & good included breakfast in the a.m then back on the road. Great pet friendly rooms as well. I stay here every year...

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Santa Nella on the way to Tahoe. The room was a good value and seemed to be recently updated. It had a granite counter for the sink area, mini fridge along with updated chairs, bedding, carpet and curtains. The staff was really nice and the breakfast was fine. The breakfast room was... More

We usually fly by Santa Nella on the I-5. This trip, however, we were going farther than Sacramento and needed to stop before going to Lassen Park. The hotel is easy to get to, but far enough away from the freeway that you don't hear the cars. The room was large, clean and comfortable. The staff was helpful and breakfast... More

The Holiday Inn Express, Santa Nella is conveniently located in the middle of nowhere a node off California Highway 5 often used by truckers and a few intrepid adventurers who accidentally stumbled in. There are a number of fast food restaurants gracing the main street (there is no other street) so you can't get lost. If you care to have... More

Driving from Portland to LA and stopped here at the end of Day 1. Staff members were extremely helpful and friendly. Room was clean and comfortable. Nice breakfast buffet. No concerns for our family. Good value for what you get.

Traveling along I-5 there is this tiny town. We pulled in with apprehension upon seeing the first side of the freeway...and at the end is this amazing put-together-well hotel. Staff was super upon check in. BBQ areas to hang out in near the pool were laid out perfectly. Room was cleaner than any 5 star hotel I've stayed in. Lots... More

The hotel itself was fine, right off I5. It's a perfect place for a pit stop, and there is a walkable Pea Soup Andersons, which was fun. The staff was very friendly. The hotel is an old hotel, but rooms are large and clean. There are no exterior windows - they all face into the courtyard, so it's a bit... More
