Stopped overnight after returning form the sierras. Great rooms-big and modern. quite-suprrising since right next to the freeway. The kids used the small pool and we went to dinner at the steak house down the road. Excellent service and friendly staff.

Excellent Hotel!! I Loved my two day stay! Everything was Super Clean. Workers were super nice, efficient, hard working. Rooms were very clean. No "hotel smell." Breakfast was delicious and had lots of different options. One minute pancakes were the best!

We stayed at the HIE Chowchilla on July 8, 2014. We were on vacation and had planned a 2 night stay while traveling between Yosemite NP and the Grand Canyon. Our stay was a break, a chance to unwind and let the kids enjoy the swimming pool. Our nice relaxing break never happened. The swimming pool was a disaster, cloudy... More

Very nice hotel in little place Chowchilla. I was pleasantly surprised by the comfort of the room and the friendly welcome. Outdoor pool is great too. Located close to the highway, but not too noisy. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast is pretty basic, but everything is there.

Everything was great at this place. Room was clean and breakfast was awesome! Could not have been more pleased with our stay! The only downfall was that we arrived late and the pool was already closed at 9 pm.

We had originally booked with Days Inn on our way to the beach with 2 of our granddaughters. Days Inn overbooked and sent us to Holiday Inn. They paid the difference between the price of the 2 hotels. The room was large, clean and comfortable. My husband took the girls to the pool which they thoroughly enjoyed. The only downfall... More

We stay here several times a year and really enjoy the comfort and service and convenience. However, on our last stay I had to print out two pages of stuff for my business and was charged 25 cents per page. It's not that I can't afford 50 cents, but my goodness that is all but fleecing. To make matters worse,... More
