I travel frequently for education conferences. I mostly stay in IHG brand hotels. Holiday Inn Express, San Pablo is top notch! The room is super clean! The man at the front desk was very kind and helpful!

We stayed here one night which was absolutely fine. The room was clean and big. It's a typical Holiday Inn Express so you know what you will get. We chose the hotel because it's close to San Francisco and not absolutley overpriced. The location isn't nice or perfect but you are on the highway in a minute. What we didn't... More

I'm so impressed with this hotel among the Holiday Inn hotels I stayed before. And I've stayed in many other hotels too either for business or personal travels. It is off I-80 and a short drive to SFO airport (well, without traffic it was). Front desk staff is attentive, friendly and helpful. The front lobby and the dining area, though... More

I stayed here after trying to check in to a disastrous hotel. After trying to check in at HIE, we told Michael H., who checked us in, of the problems we just had. He went above and beyond for us and actually called the other hotel and requested that they not charge us because we were staying at HIE. He... More

As a member of San Pablo City Council, I have many opportunities to dine out locally and to report on establishments in my city. While The Holiday Inn Express does not have a restaurant, I have friends from out of town who stay there on a regular basis. They always report back to me of their positive stays. I had... More

This hotel was extremely clean, had new carpets and furniture. There was a comfortable chair and ottoman, blackout curtains, coffee bar, microwave, large refrigerator and modern bathroom. The manager was very gracious and helpful, as well as the staff. The free breakfast was better than a really nice restaurant. Fresh eggs, crisp bacon, biscuits and homemade sausage gravy, pancakes, oatmeal,... More
