I've long relied on the HI Express chain. It has what I want - simple, no frills, and reasonably priced while being clean and comfortable with something to eat in the morning to get going. This hotel was a bit below the standard I expected, though it wasn't bad. First, I have to say that the staff was incredibly friendly... More

Our Holiday Inn Express stay on Seaside Circle, Marina was great. Ronil at the front desk was so courteous, and made sure any requests for extra towels, blankets or whatever were brought to us in a very timely fashion. His sincere demeanor regarding our stay was so refreshing, he made us feel very welcome. He inquired if all of our... More

The staff was courteous and quick. We had a really large room/suite that we had booked with priceline. The breakfast was standard, but good. Small touches were lacking. My husband noted what a poor job had been done on tile work in the bathrooms. I read the other review about the ladders near the Jacuzzi. I think they have been... More

Carpet stains in my room. Poor wifi reception in the room. Jacuzzi/Sauna area need to be cleaned up a bit. Bird droppings on the walls. Overhead fans were dusty. Walls need paint touch up. Open area near the jacuzzi looks like a storage area for equipments such as a ladder which can be an eye sore. No strawberry jam, no... More

My wife and I both give this hotel 2 thumbs up. It's a pretty standard Holiday Inn Express. We stayed here for one night (with our daughter) as we were heading toward LA from San Francisco. The hotel is right next to Wal-Mart which came in handy for us - we were able to swing over there and pick up... More

During this week I stayed in 4 different hotels/chains. As a result, some of my comment will be in comparison to the other three hotels (which I have not named in this review). I arrived... More

I was not impressed with the late night front desk service I received. I booked a room for 2 on Hotwire for 108.00. Not a fabulous rate, yet OK.

We enjoyed our stay very much! What a great place to stay. Close to the beach and freeway access is easy. Family-friendly and kid-tolerable which we really appreciate! Our kids aren't very quiet but no one heard them and the staff was nice and charming and full of character! Love this place. :)
