“Nice room, nice stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

I traveled to Oakdale on business. The Holiday Inn Express was recommended by a local resident so I booked my room there. I was greeted by a very helpful and friendly staff member. She processed my check-in quickly and got me to my room with no delay.

I found my room to be clean and nicely appointed. The rooms are small but clean and comfortable. There is very little negative to share about the room. However, if I were to complain about anything in the room it would be the lack of an in-room safe. Otherwise, the room has a nice desk, free wifi in the room, a microwave, a refrigerator, an iron and ironing board, a comfy (firm) bed, pillows labeled firm/soft, and a nice free breakfast in the morning.

This is not the type of hotel I usually write about but I felt it was worthy of a nice review. If you are coming to the Oakdale area/Yosemite please give the Holiday Inn Express a chance. You won't be disappointed.

As always, thank you for reading.

Great location near downtown Oakdale right on Hwy 108 & Hwy 120. Clean rooms, comfortable bed, reasonable rates. I appreciate the security (must use room card to access hallways). Lots to do in town and the restaurant Ryders is right across the street (cheap big meals). Will stay here again.

Holiday Inn Express Oakdale was a welcome sight after a long drive from San Francisco International Airport. The clerk behind the desk greeted us with a smile and checked us in rapidly. As an iHG member i received a discount on my room. We carried our luggage to our rooms.

There was a bottle of water waiting for us in our room.The rooms are medium sized with a large flat screen TV. The beds are very comfortable with pillows marked soft, firm, etc. The rooms have a desk, bureau, refrigerator with a bottle of water, coffee/tea maker, and a safe. Parking is not a problem. The rooms are quiet and clean. The bathrooms are medium sized and offer the shampoo, conditioner, and a shower cap. The shower had good water pressure. There are plenty of towels.

The breakfast is free. It offers a large selection and was very good. There is both hot and cold food.

There is little wonder that this hotel gets the accolades it receives.

Thank you for the wonderful response. The staff at Holiday Inn Express Oakdale work very hard to create a pleasing experience for our guests. It was unfortunate that you were unable to get the full experience of the splendor of Yosemite while the Rim Fire was burning. Hopefully you can make another trip. When you do, we look forward to serving you.

I was heading for san francisco after visiting Yosemite National park got there around 7pm. The front desk clerk was very friendly and courteous. Everything was ready for me and I do not have to wait at the front desk. Also been a part of Priority club received some goodies.Over all Hotel is very neat and clean and staff is very courteous. Morning breakfast was also warm with different varieties to choose from. I will highly recommend this hotel as a pit stop between Yosemite and San Fran as a mid point. The price is very reasonable for the services I got.

Room Tip: Pick a room further away from stair case or elevator to avoid noises.

I have stayed here on multiple occasions for business travel here in Oakdale. The hotel has always been very clean and comfortable, and the staff is very eager to help with anything that is needed. If your travels bring you to Oakdale, this is by far the best place to stay.
