Haven't stayed in too many Holiday Inn's, but glad that I made the exception for this one. We chose it mainly due to the location and decent Tripadvisor reviews. Location was right off of the 101, although it is a little funky getting on and off the highway to the hotel. If you are going north on the 101, the... More

Nice and helpful personnel like the ones I met at this hotel are always greatly appreciated, specially after a long flight. Hotel rooms are spacious and contain what one may need. WiFi was temporarily off but was fixed later in the day. I also enjoyed the bar and the breakfast lounge. I had nothing to complain about other than the... More

From the moment you walk into this hotel, you feel like you will be taken care of. We stayed here twice and both times, the staff were incredibly helpful. Rema, in particular, is a joy, but all of the staff were great. The rooms were quite large and comfortable. The on-site restaurant has what you need if you don't want... More

Rema was very helpful at my stay at the hotel. She was able to help me through some bumps in the road with the room and the hotel services. Hotel management should have done a better job with the tv/cable disruptions and wifi.

This hotel cost me almost a hundred bucks in mobile charges because the internet was so slow, it was unusable. It took more than 10 minutes to load a simple home page like google. A hard line connection did not help. Staff simply shrugged and said oh well. Also had some issues on checkout, because i forgot too (my fault)... More

Dear JohnnyGambler, Thank you for reviewing your recent stay with us, and for choosing the Holiday Inn and Suites in San Mateo for your recent trip. During your stay, we were in the process of upgrading our wireless internet services, which resulted in slower speeds than normal as they were disconnecting and connecting all of the new equipment.

This hotel offers free internet .. except it just doesn't work. I have been staying for 2 nights and have 2 more to go. Despite being in the heart of Silicon Valley this hotel offers an incredibly unreliable internet experience. The first night it was up and down like a yoyo - and the second it was non existent. As...

The hotel is good and the Staff (Rema & team) was very helpful through out my stay. They helped me with the booking even though I arrived a day early. Hotel is in a good location. Will for sure stay here again if I return to San Mateo Shreekanth. V

I don't expect too much from a Holiday Inn, but this one is nice. The staff was average upon check-in. I think the clerk was new as she forgot to give me a key, and when I asked for one she gave me the master key for all of the rooms. The rooms have been nicely updated. The beds were... More
