Recently stay three nights The room smelled musty the entire time. The sheets were worn and wrinkled. The towels were rough and scratched. Nothing in walking distance. Nothing warranted a return visit.

Very friendly and efficient check in. Clean, nice room and comfortable bed. Good breakfast and nice breakfast area. Location not great, but hotel offers shuttle! (Nothing in area within walking distance). Can hear nearby train from room. They are renovating hotel, so will be even nicer soon.

This Holiday Inn Express is older than the one I stayed at in Selma, just outside of San Antonio. It was updated, but it was showing a little age. It is near lots of restaurants. The manager was very friendly. My room was quiet and comfortable.

Our filght out of SAN was cancelled so we were stuck overnight. This hotel was booked for us by a third party. We found the accomodations to be on par with others in this price range. We found the front desk staff to be friendly and check in and check out was not a problem. They do have a happy... More

I have seriously never talked with a hotel Manager that is as rude as the General Manager "Versha" at this Holiday Inn Express. I guess she is the one who trained "Rebecca" the Team Lead because she was just as unhelpful and rude as well. Neither one of them wanted to accept my reservation. I don't see this hotel being...

Sorry, but this time I got a room that was average and the bathroom had a really strong smell of urine- I've stayed here several times and never had that problem, but this time? Sheesh, I didn't even want to go into that room. The breakfast is good, the staff friendly- maybe it's deep cleaning time for the toilets!

stayed here for a week on business trip. Loved the lobby which is nicely decorated! Good breakfast, every day House keeping, snack room, good location & neatly maintained. I wouldn't expect much for what I paid.

Small express tucked into a postage stamp lot behind business's. Room was a typical Holiday Inn Express room. Thin floors though, walking could be heard with heavy feet. Lots of cautions about crime on a laminated card in the room. One of the 2 entrances is locked down after dark which confirms there are problems! Never saw anything the 3... More

I have written over 150 reviews on Trip Advisor; I hope you find my review helpful. First, do NOT trust your I-phone's navigation to get you here...it thinks this hotel is across the highway.
