We stayed for just one night while travelling through the East Bay area. The hotel is tucked behind a semi-seedy shopping center anchored by a Ross store. However, once you get back to the hotel, it's pretty nice. The room was good sized and everything worked fine. It was quiet and the breakfast was good. Would stay here again.

Our recent stay at this hotel was a lovely experience. We have had some very bad experiences at HIE during our trip and walked in expecting more of the same. We were very pleasantly surprised.

I called a week before asking for room preference, when we arrived later in the evening after a long drive, they had our reservation and the room saved as promised, that was a pleasant surprise. Rest of the 2 days/nights were really great. Another plus is the breakfast, and its a hot breakfast so no need to run to another... More

This is a great Holiday Inn! Updated facility, clean, great beds, quiet hotel! The front desk people either always remember me or do a good job of acting like they do. Great breakfast of course offered by Holiday Inn. I love their work out room, never packed and I can always get a treadmill. The neighborhood is a little shady... More

The hotel was clean, quiet, and the front desk staff was very helpful and pleasant. They helped me set the thermostat, which was very important to me. Very convenient, good value by advance purchase. Only downside is the lack of restaurants with decent edibles within walking distance. (I arrived late at night and didn't want to drive any more.)

We recently stayed at the HIE San Pablo on our way from SFO to Wine country. Our flight arrived late and we wanted to get ahead of traffic in the morning but not drive until 2am to Napa. This was perfect. Right off the highway, friendly and easy. A good choice.

Ok, a hotel next to a casino right off of a major highway? Even if its a Holiday Inn Express (my GO TO hotel when on business {see other reviews}) I was skeptical. I should have learned long ago that you shouldn't judge until you experience! The hotel is tucked in between the highway and a strip mall right behind... More
