The hotels on the North South stretch of I-5 between Sacramento and Bakersfield are known as "passing thru" properties as opposed to a "destination" property. i.e Disneyland Hotel. As such; these hotels are only expected to be clean and have passable amenities. I researched hotels in my driving range and found several that were priced similarly. This hotel was rated... More

We stopped here on our way home from Disneyland. We picked it because of our past experiences with Holiday Inn and that it was right off the freeway. We were extremely pleased. It surpassed our expectations. The staff was extremely friendly, the hotel grounds well maintained, and the room was very clean and comfortable. The pool and hot tub were... More

We were on the road as most people are when staying at these hotels, but the staff was very pleasant and helpful when I checked in. It comes with breakfast, but we didn't take the time to eat it since we wanted to get back on the road. Better than a motel 6 even though more expensive. The only thing... More

My wife, my service dog and myself had an awesome stay here. The staff is awesome and very helpful. We will definitely stay here each time we travel through here. The grounds are great and there is grass for my dog to enjoy. I really like this one.

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.

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
