“Great Place to Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

The DoubleTree not only has spacious rooms and excellent service, it also has a very nice breakfast buffet - with fresh fruit, cheeses, hard boiled eggs, on top of the usual "staples." For a bit more, you can add the hot eggs and side dish(es).

Yes, you can hear the train during your stay - so bring ear plugs if that will bother you. Personally, I don't find it a problem at all.

You can park for a fee at the hotel, or park across the street in the multi-level parking garage, and validate your ticket as you check in. There's a sky bridge between the parking garage located around the 3rd level. After crossing the sky-bridge to the hotel, there is an elevator from the parking garage level to the lobby level (outside the lobby doors) or stairs, whichever you prefer.

Green Features: The room includes a recycling bin, which is a nice touch.

The train noise was a shocker! Very loud horns 3 times during the night. Difficult to get a good night's sleep The bathroom fixtures were quite old and worked poorly. The shower head was minimally adjustable and at the best setting it felt like I was being showered with a mist sprayer. My colleague had it even worse in that her shower would do nothing more than a trickle. She could not get it to work and they only took half off of the cost for her stay.

Stayed here for a wedding. Had great meals, wonderful service, and the room was big and clean. The bedding and bed were all very nice and we slept well. The hotel was nicely decorated, however our room was old and dated. Maybe they hadn't gotten to update it yet?

The staff were very helpful and the hotel condition overall is nice, but being located directly across from railroad tracks upon which a freight train passes by every half hour (24 hours a day) blaring its horn, I can't recommend it.

Dear Andrew,

Thank you for your review of our hotel. I'd like to apologize for the noise issues that you encountered during your stay with us. When you come to a hotel you're expecting to get a great night's sleep and unfortunately we were not able to provide you with that. Again, I thank you for your review and we'll be sure to keep your comments in mind as we make future improvements to our hotel. I'd love to have you back to give our hotel a second chance.

Sincerely,

Welcome bags for the 80 rooms that were occupied by our friends and family were not given to the guests!! We returned home with them...not happy! Asked the front desk what happened and was told neither of them were on duty friday or saturday. Also, there is a piano in lobby and one of our guests is a concert pianist and wanted to play. We were told no as the front desk would not be able to hear the phone ring. Why have a piano if it can't be used? The pool is kept at 72 degrees, that is outrageous, no wonder there was no one in it all weekend. I remember this from a wedding I attended 2 years ago..I thought perhaps they had just filled the pool, but that is the temp all year. The rooms are clean and the maid service was excellent.

The room was fantastic. It was extremely clean, smelled wonderful and beautifully decorated. The bed was very comfortable. The hotel staff was friendly and accomodating. As Hilton Honors members, we were upgraded to a suite for free. We decided to have dinner at the restaurant in the hotel. The service from the restaurant was excellent. All the servers were friendly, thoughtful and were very good. The food was also good and an excellent value. Everything was great except for the location. We did not realize that the hotel was right next to train tracks. So we were woken up three times when the train passed through, sounding it's horn for about 15-30 seconds each time.

Great stay for a high end Hotel in Modesto. Couldn't think of any other place I would rest my head at while staying in the valley. I tried a low end place in Turlock and it was horrible, DoubleTree suited my needs. Stepped a few feet and saw a movie and Brenden Theatres, nice little downtown area, very quiet! Recommend this place for a quiet day.
