“Nice Large Rooms at the Doubletree Modesto”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

I enjoyed my stay at this Doubletree. Because I am a Gold level member, I was able to choose my room via the website prior to arriving. Check-in was completed quickly. The lobby was spacious and attractive. My room was on a upper floor away from the busy street side of the hotel. The hotel is next to the convention center. My room was very large and had a small sofa and coffee table along with a desk and chest of drawers. There was a large flat screen t.v and the room had a refrigerator. I chose to eat in my room and was able to kick back, enjoy my dinner and watch the football game. The large bathroom was clean and modern. As usual for the Hilton family of hotels, the bed was very comfortable. The only drawback to the hotel was the parking. There was a parking garage across the street and hotel guests either had to park in the parking garage for a fee or try and find parking on the street. I chose to park on the street, but there was not much available. There are a lot of parking restriction and time limits, so you have to be careful where you park. I was given a voucher for a continental breakfast in the morning with an option to upgrade to the breakfast buffet for $5. I chose the upgrade. There were eggs, sausage, potatoes, as well as the continental breakfast items (yogurt, fruit, cereal, pastries, etc.) Coffee and orange juices were included. I would definitely stay here again!

Nice hotel downtown, reasonably clean and well decorated. Small but serviceable fitness area with outdoor pool and hot tub( prob. nice in summer but not too useful in Dec.!) We did hear the train but it didn't bother us. We had asked for a quiet room.
We used public parking garage across the street and it was easy to access.

Food was quite nice, certainly not gourmet. Just a warning-we were there on a Sunday night so hardly any restaurants were open downtown.

Did not find much to do in Modesto but did visit the Victorian mansion, the McHenry House. Worth a quick stop if you are in the area.

Room Tip: Ask for quiet.

From the moment you check in until the time you exit the property, the hotel and staff are worthy of the Hilton name. My wife and I were pleased by the friendly and helpful staff of this Doubletree Hotel. They went beyond their call to make sure our visit an enjoyable, memorable experience. Our room on the tenth floor commanded a speculator view of Modesto and the surrounding foothills. We enjoyed the sunset, quietness of our room, and all the amenities within our room. It was Thanksgiving eve and the hotel lobby was decorated with an elegant Christmas tree and made us feel that we were in a first class hotel. And of course their signature Doubletree cookies were a welcome treat at check-in. Recommend a stay at this property!

Room Tip: Stay on the tenth floor!

The hotel was recomended to us by a local friend for its central location. This could not be more true as all places of interest or best restaurants are in walking distance.
My colleague and I enjoyed the very friendly andcompetent check in service and the affordable and quick valet parking. The rooms are spacious and very well equipped.
In the relatively small bar we enjoed excellent barfood and lovely service. Also the wine recomendations were helpful.

Overall this was a pleasant stay while I was in Modesto for a Photography conferece held at the hotel. Rooms were nice and big, very clean, and with all the amenities you would expect. Probably the best place to stay when in Modesto. The staff was friendly and helpful. Bar and Food Service was up to a fine standard. Definitely would stay again next time I am in Modesto.

We stayed here on a Saturday night after attending an event held at the hotel. For it's age (15 years +) it's in good condition. The decor is dated, but the rooms are of a reasonable size, clean, and the beds are comfortable. AAA rate was just under 100/night and that very fair for the area. The front desk staff was hit and miss. Checking in the service was mediocre at best....on of the 2 people working did not look up as she told me to get in the other line, she was not checking anyone in. The gentleman at the desk in the morning was great, professional and helpful.
Parking is across the street in a city lot, there is a bridge above the street to get to the hotel. Take your stub with you, the hotel validates the parking so it's free.
Restaurant and bar on site, the breakfast buffet was pricey but very good. business center and pool also. this hotel is within walking distance to fast food and sit down restaurants, movie theaters, and the Gallo Center theater.
Access to Hwy 99 is not simple, but not too difficult.
At the rate we paid I'd recommend the Doubletree, I'ts positives far outweigh the negatives.

Presently in room 423, for business. Location is great for closeness to the office. Staff is very courteous. Now to the in sight correctable issues. The toliet seat is old the paint is peeling off and ruff surfaces top and bottom sides. Bottom side of the toilet seat is urine stain. I feel this issues could have been correct by any level of the staff, I don't feel it would have taken a phone call too far up the food chain. Second issuse relates to the toilet seat, the bathroom has that musty urine smell. Third issue, constant heavy smell of cigarette in the room. This problem is for Kole Siefken (General Manager) to direct the Engineers to take care of this matter because the smell is not contained in this one room. In the post i will forego the carpet issue

Room Tip: Ask front desk to view the room before taking it. You can do this at any reputable establishment. We...
