“ALWAYS A PLEASURE! EXCELLENT HOTEL!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

Have stayed at this property, The Holiday Inn Express, in El Dorado Hills, CA many times. Each and every time, it has been a pleasurable experience. It is a very nice, upscale, clean, neat, well-appointed hotel that is well-managed and employs a good staff. We had a family suite this time just for the two of us and it was far nicer than some of the most expensive hotels we have stayed at elsewhere. The only problems we encountered were no fault of the hotel. The town was hosting a couple of events that were very loud which bothered us greatly but there was nothing in the hotel's power they could do or could have done to remedy this. The town is small and the hotel is located close to the town center. The first day there was a wine/vendor event set up with terrible music. But it did end before dinner so that was good. But then there was another event being held at another venue nearby where the guests were very loud well past midnight. As I said there was nothing the hotel could have done about these events that were held off property. Stay here, you won't be sorry!

The hotel appears to be fairly new and the rooms were very clean. Space in the room was adequate and the staff were friendly and accommodating. For me, the bed and pillows were fabulous. I never woke up once during the 3 nights we stayed there. And usually when I travel, that is an issue. The only issue we did experience was the orange juice machine malfunctioning. So we had to wait until they could go get some juice and serve it to us in pitchers. But no big deal really. The eggs were a little bland. But in all fairness I like a lot of spiciness, so this may not be an issue for you. We never experienced any outside noise. Although once we heard some really loud people in the hall. But sometimes that just happens no matter where you are. There is more than adequate parking and the hotel itself is located within the Town Center. You are within walking distance of everything, so it was extremely convenient. If we were to ever return to El Dorado Hills, we would definitely stay there again.

This motel is located at the “El Dorado Hills Town Center,” a quiet and convenient spot. The room (single king) was in good condition and they gave us a quiet room facing the pool. They provided a wine and beer event with a few basic appetizers for their guests from 5 to 7pm on the day we arrived. It was nice to taste some of the wines from the region. Several restaurants are within easy walking distance.

Spent week at hotel utilizing 4 different reservations and the hotel adjusted so we did not need to move rooms. The hotel had a managers hosting on week nights and served complimentary wine that was outstanding and expensive when we price checked...obviously not something one expects from any hotel and certainly not from a HIE. The staff always greated us coming and going and most of the staff remembered us and our situation with family in the area even though it has been 4 months since we were last there. The hotel continues to have outstanding appearance, outstanding cleanliness, outstanding landscaping and way above average breakfast for any HEI and every other hotel breakfast that is not sit down, ordered. Continues its well earnet reputation as best HIE ever experienced.

Room Tip: There are many options all good but the rooms at rear of the hotel overlook a beautiful lake and fir...

Dear Tonydt,
Thank you for your continued loyalty and choosing our hotel while in El Dorado Hills. We will always try to accommodate the “multi reservation” to keep the guest in the same room.
We appreciate you taking the time to write such a great review that covers so many aspects of our hotel. Our manager’s reception is Monday – Thursday and we only serve local wines, along with a variety of beers. The Sierra foothills have some of the best wines. Next time you travel up to EDH we can will be happy to give you a map of the wineries and point out a few of our favourites.
Kind Regards,
Jennie Klann
General Manager

Just stayed there again for a week and confirmed that this is definitely the best hotel I have ever stayed in.
The positive experience starts with ample parking, continues with warm friendly and professional greeting at the front desk, followed by the spacious and spotless rooms, comfy beds and all this in a perfect location with food and shopping right next door.
Everything in this hotel is geared to making sure that your stay there is as comfortable (if not more) than being at home and it does it successfully.
The breakfast and smiling breakfast staff are a great way to start the day. The evening "happy hour" is a great way to unwind and relax after a long day.
Both Check-in and Checkout were flawless. It's an end to end perfect hotel experience.
I can now highly recommend this hotel to both families and to business folks travelling alone.

We spend three 3 nights at this wonderful Inn, after staying at the Holiday Inn in Fresno over night, our son was married over the week-end in Fair Oaks, which was very close to where the Inn is located. During the days leading to the wedding, we spent time in Folsom, and Placerville, which are both very close, the weather was nice and bright and sunny each day, but cold at night. We loved our room ,and the ability to stay in such a beautiful little town, we felt safe walking to dinner and spending time in town. The cleaning staff was wonderful, we left a tip for one of the ladies that cleaned our room each morning. The only comment I have is that the breakfast area is not suited for the size of the Inn, there are not enough tables, we had to eat while sitting in a couch which is not very comfortable. The area is surrounded by a couch and chairs, there needs to be more tables. The lady that prepared breakfast was very nice, everything was very clean, and well prepared, except for the eggs they were too wet and runny. Other than that we would highly recommend staying in El Dorado Hills. We hope to return again in the near future.

Room Tip: Ground floor space is nice, poolside, but would have preferred a higher floor with a view of the bri...

Dear Fressia,
A congratulation on your son’s wedding! We have had such a mild winter with bright sunny days, perfect for the wedding and your exploring Folsom and Placerville.
I appreciate your excellent review of the hotel cleanliness, rooms and service. On weekends, we have so many wonderful families who linger over breakfast and catch up with one another. I am sorry you were not able to secure table space when you had your breakfast.
The sun is still shining; we hope to see you again soon.

After a bad experience at a hotel in Sacramento, we decided to stay at the HIE El Dorado. We and another couple needed rooms right away and the staff was very helpful. In fact every staff member we encountered was very polite and this is a sign of good management. More importantly the room was very clean, as we had left a previous hotel due to lack of cleanliness. We also liked the location since we have family in Sacramento and Placerville. Additionally, there are several restaurants and stores within walking distance. Though we weren't planning to stay there on this trip, it turned out to be a great experience.

Room Tip: We had a room with a pool and hill view.
