This is a great location if you are travelling along the pacific coast highway. However, this is way below the standard of any Holiday inn Express that I have stayed in before. The rooms are set out in different blocks form the reception area, and are very quiet. The whole hotel was very quiet whilst we were there, apart form... More

We stopped off here on the way to San Francisco from LA. Very nice quiet rooms. Ate out at the restaurant next door which was quite an experience . Staff very helpful. Breakfast was fine. Parking easy.

I was in the 2nd floor and it was great. The one problem I had was the traffic noise that came from the freeway. The another reason you can stay here is that hey have friendly staff and everyone is saying "Hi". I would recommend this hotel.

This hotel is nice and a very decent place to stay. The staff at the front desk was helpful and gave us a 10% off coupon for the steakhouse next door. The hotel is as they say, freeway close. But it's all good. I'd stay there again. The pool and jacuzzi are nice.

I had a job in the area and surely wanted to get points for my long term hotel stay. There were other HI's in the area, and even a nearby Candlewood Suites, but a work partner chose this hotel, so I decided to try it for a week, and wound up staying longer. First of all, Grover Beach (near Pismo... More

The weekend we went there were several problems. The elevator was broken on the three days we were there. Bringing your luggage up several flights of stairs is no easy task. The Hallways smelled like homeless people lived in them? The staff was trying to fix the odor by opening up all the door and windows in the building. The... More

We stayed here for one night. We were looking for a hotel right off the freeway and Holiday Inn Express fit our needs well. Parking and WiFi were free. Rooms were comfortable with two queen beds, a TV, a table, a refrigerator and a coffee machine. The friendly lady at the reception gave us bottles of drinking water and small... More
