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

We stayed here for my sons baseball tournament. We looked on line for hotels and we picked this one because of all the reviews it had. I must say I really liked everything about it. The front desk was very hospitable and they answered all my questions. We also loved our room we stayed in a suit and it was... More

After a long day at Yosemite a and trying to find a hotel we found this one. Although the price increased from the time we'd searched it and arrived we still stayed. Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet. Toilet was low, seems like they were this was at all the CA HI's.

When we arrived the hotel was clean and smelled wonderful! We were greeted by very friendly folks at the front desk. The beds were comfortable and pillows were soft like clouds! The breakfast had a great variety and the individual in charge of the breakfast area maintained it and kept it very clean!

We stayed here after touring Yosemite and found it to be very comfortable and pleasant. Staff was great. Nothing at all to complain about except that we wouldn't call it a gateway to Yosemite - it's in the general area but it was quite a drive to reach it. It met all the expectations we have come to have for... More

Overall pleasant stay. Just wish the spa would be open later in the night, say 11.00 pm. The pool area is a bit smelly though of lots of cows and ranch! My kids enjoyed the hot buffet, though they wished bacon was on the menu! The front desk Monika was very helpful and gave us lots of information on planning... More

We were lucky to find a hotel after a long day. Room was very clean and comfortable. Really liked the mattress; best sleep I'd had in months (but then, we had been sleeping on an air mattress on the floor while fixing a house). We thought having a Jacuzzi in the main room was kind of strange (we'd been upgraded... More

Decided on this hotel last minute and was pleasantly surprised. Very nice. Very clean. Well appointed and felt very new. Loved the decor and plush clean carpeting. The free breakfast was better than other hotels..I wish I had gotten to spend just a few hours overnight there to enjoy it.
