After long trip along California coast, this hotel is perfect place to stay before heading to San Jose or San Francisco. When I checked in the hotel, the girl at reception was very nice, I was joking if microwave was available, and she said yes, that was a surprised for hotel which provides compliment breakfast. When I entered the room,... More

Very dated, in need of a power washing and deep cleaning. The new reception building and desk staff get an A, but the motel behind is in need of updating, cleaning, freshening. The bathroom was circa 1960, the linens worn, the bed old, the air conditioner just adequate, terrific highway noise comes in, the price was VERY high (more than... More

My husband and I stayed here for 8 days. We've stayed at Holiday Inn Expresses before and by far this one was the most expensive "motel" I have ever stayed in. With a couple of exceptions: The front desk staff was amazing, that is why I am giving them the 3 stars. They have fresh coffee, water, and cookies at... More

We stayed for two nights during an event at the Laguna Seca Raceway on a weekend. Our second floor room overlooking the pool was spacious and the shower had been updated. The bed and bedding was particularly comfortable (we're partial to softer beds) and the room was quiet, although not many people used the pool during our stay. The breakfast... More

The hotel and its staff are pretty nice. The days we were there it was cold and windy and were not prepared for such kind of weather in July. We should have brought some jackets and long sleeve shirts.
