“Everything you need for a great stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

From the Monterey Bay Area, we wanted to stay near Fresno for a family funeral and combine it with a little recreation at Table Mountain Casino during our overnight stay. The hotel had a King room available for a super early 9:30 a.m. check-in so we could dress for the funeral service. After the service, we came back and changed for Table Mountain. After making our fun "deposit" we returned for a relaxing evening and had wonderful night's rest on their comfy beds. Room 214 was a spacious, end room that was quiet and had a convenient medium sized microwave and refrigerator. Their breakfast provided delicious pancakes made by a nifty machine, scrambled eggs, bacon, biscuits and sausage gravy, hard boiled eggs, yogurts, cereals, fruit, pastries, a selection of breads, juices, and hot morning beverages. Staff really works hard to please their guests. I thought it was a great value, very clean, and had a super location with plenty of eateries nearby. A Sonic and Subway is just behind the hotel by Home Depot on a quiet side street. Beyond those choices there are plenty of informal family restaurants really closeby that will please your tastes. The Staff even helped me find Fresno State's Farm for their seasonal summer yellow corn sale as a little side trip the next morning (3 for 99 cents for the sweetest corn ever!) The hotel is really easy to find and near the highway, (you can see the sign) but it's set back enough to not have the heavy traffic noise.

This was a great place to stay. The hotel was newer. The beds were wonderful after what we stayed in the night before. As we were on a road trip to the condo we rented in Palm Desert we only we staying in each hotel one night....after the previous night hotel this one was such a pleasure! It was quiet and the price was very fair.

We used this hotel as our base for multiple visits to Yosemite National Park. The rooms were large and clean. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The hotel is located close to the highway and near some very good restaurants.

The rooms were very spacious and clean. The whole property was very nice. Everything was very modern. The staff was friendly and even though Madera is a cow town, the location of this hotel was pretty nice as far as restaurants being near by. There is a Starbucks literally a few feet from the entrance. Overall I think this HIEXpress was very nice.

We stayed here after a long day in Yosemite Park, and arrived tired out and wanting a good meal and hot shower and this place was great. Staff couldn't be nicer and the bathroom and bedroom were huge. It is a new hotel, with free internet too. The pool looked nice even though I didn't go in.
We only were in town one night but the hotel was great and breakfast is very generous.

I found this hotel on my smartphone while driving from Yosemite to San Francisco. We wanted a clean, comfortable room for one night after a long day of hiking. The hotel looked like the best one in the area and when I looked on Tripadvisor, the reviews were great. While I am not one to stay at a Holiday Inn, I thought, "why not, let's try it".

The staff at the front desk were very friendly and gave great restaurant recommendations. The room was spacious, the bed was very comfortable, and the free hi-speed internet was the fastest (and effortless getting in) of any hotel we stayed on the trip.

There was a comment made on here about the breakfast being a little small. However, this is not the case any longer. There was eggs, biscuits and gravy, pancakes, bacon, cereal, cinnamon rolls, bagels, toast, english muffins, 2 types of muffins, hard boiled eggs, and all you could want to drink.

My stay has left me wondering if Holiday Inns in other cities are just as nice. I will definitely keep the Holiday Inn in mind for future hotel bookings.

Stayed here on a 10 day driving holiday. We were tired after a long drive and needed to find somewhere. The bed and room was fine, we arrived late though and were unsure of surroundings and felt a bit uncomfortable there. The breakfast was very average, they rave about cinnamon rolls that really don't impress. It was fine as a place to get some rest, but nothing more than that.
