4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed for 4 nights and whilst room was basic, it was adequate. There is a laundry room for a very reasonable fee. Breakfast is the usual for this type of hotel, again adequate. Compared to others in the area, this hotel is one of the best.

After calling 15 other hotels and being told "no" to my dog staying with me, I was so happy when this place finally said yes! I have an English mastiff who is 160 lb but very well groomed and trained but other hotels immediately refused to even consider it even after offering a substantial pet fee. My experience is that...

This Holiday Inn Express is your basic hotel. The rooms were dated but clean. There was also free wifi in the rooms. They had the typical free holiday inn breakfast available. Check in and check out was easy and quick. Overall a basic hotel.

This hotel is a great choice for travelers with dogs. In addition to being accommodating with the basic plus extras such as a bottled water, a bowl and chew toy for your dog on arrival, they keep the property well maintained. Pet rooms are exceptionally clean and well maintained which is not always the case with other pet friendly hotels.... More

Had an event in Sanfird and stayed at the HI Express. It is wonderfully run and the front desk, maintenance and cleaning staff are very friendly and make sure your stay meets their expectations. Rooms are clean and spacious...the hotel is fairly new. The breakfast area is small but adequate. Impressed with the pancake maker. Great stay. πŸ˜„πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜€πŸ˜Š
