We checked into this hotel tonight. We had narrowed our search to two hotels--this one and a slightly cheaper one. . I called the desk of this hotel to ask for more info about the room. The desk clerk put me through to central reservations who quoted me a price for a "2 bedroom suite". Because have young children this... More

The recent remodel of this property will be a treat for those who frequent HIExpress. The lobby is ultra sleek and modern compared to the older counterparts. This location has bikes and helmets that you can borrow to explore Davis. The breakfast at HIE could really use an upgrade or change, but that isn't specific to this location. Higher quality...

My wife and I spent one night at the HIE in Davis and found it to be a relatively new, modern, and clean hotel although pretty plain. No big issues but I feel it is overpriced for the quality provided. My understanding is that Davis is more expensive than say Sacramento where we stayed at a Marriot that was a... More

Stayed here for 17 nights for work, while attending training at UC Davis. The hotel was very well kept up and the staff was very friendly and attentive to every need. The room was comfortable and well cleaned. Breakfast was good, with a good selection; as what you can expect from Holiday Inn Express. The hotel was in a safe... More

I had a very nice stay here over a long weekend in August while visiting my son, who was working at UC Davis for the summer. The people working here are especially nice, and my room was clean, spacious, and comfortable. The free buffet breakfast was the biggest surprise, as it encompassed a wide variety of breakfast foods and beverages,... More

This is now a Holiday Inn Express. We stayed here for two nights last weekend. We arrived in the early evening and check-in was a breeze. We got into our room, settled a bit and then went out to find dinner. When we returned and turned on the lights, there was a black bug crawling on the bed. I'm not... More

This changed from Comfort Inn to Holiday Inn Express two weeks before we arrived there. I is very nice and clean and our room was nice, quiet, and comfortable. We did our laundry in their nice and clean facility. We were traveling by train and took a taxi to hotel but the distance is also walkable. There are restaurants nearby.... More

I stayed here for a business trip and the overall hotel is exactly what you'd expect from Comfort Suites: clean, simple, good quality. However, something happens at this hotel around 10pm when UC Davis students take over the whole hotel. They are in the lobby and the pool and they are (no surprise) loud and energetic. I had to call... More

Our family visits Davis 2-3 times a year. We've stayed in most of the hotels in the area, and this is the one we now return to regularly. If you have a family, get the suite; you'll have a bedroom with a queen for the parents and two queen beds for the kids. Nicely decorate, great staff, very comfortable. We... More

Typically love writing positive reviews but I just had to warn others. I will say the bed and pillows were comfortable but that's it. The curtains didn't close and the lights from the parking lot were blinding (I finally took a hair tie and rubber banded them together). The ice machines didn't work I checked the floor I was on...
