“Agreed!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

For the most part, I agree with the reviews written. This Holiday Inn Express is clean and simple with everything you need and a very friendly staff. The location is great. The pool is small but well maintained. The pool towels were a little bigger than hand towels, but they provided great entertainment while drying. Life it too short not to have a sense of humor. The lobby and the dinning area are part of the lobby check in, but that was ok too. I did miss the nicer teas. They only had Lipton regular and decaf. The apples were fresh and sweet and the candy dish was a nice treat. No problem with the internet. Four stars is a fair rating.

Room Tip: Ask for the top floor with a pool view. It was very nice to look out over toward the hills.

We stayed here after we stayed at the Disneyland Hotel for 4 nights with the kids (just to be able to get in one hour early). To my surprise, the Holiday Inn Express has many more amenities than the Disneyland Hotel. They even give you bottled water whenever you ask for it. Towels were thick and soft, all rooms are suites, which include another TV, sofa , table, desk , microwave, frig, coffee pot, free wiFi in the rooms , free parking and free breakfast (including Greek yogurt)etc... All of which my other hotel did not
have for three times the price! I was totally impressed and will go back .

4th fl., large rearroom with view from above of industrial space and bungalows amidst ariel wires. Quiet. Nice bed. Very clean in room and hotel. Nice staff. Open lobby space to lounge in while waiting for friends. Buffet breakfast great on Monday, totally crowded with most of the good stuff all eaten Tuesday. Valet laundry tried to charge for 2-piece suit dry cleaning when sent top and lower pyjama units for simple laundry (as marked on slip in own category); fixed that upon request.

Dear k2r,

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your stay. It is unfortunate confusion over the laundry service prevented you from fully enjoying your time at the hotel. We are confident the necessary adjustments will be made, in order to achieve complete guest satisfaction.

Thank you again for your comments, we look forward to serving you in the future.

Sincerely,

Ben J

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for the FSU vs. Auburn BCS championship game. The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly. I was impressed that the desk clerk offered us each a cold bottle of water when we checked in. The free breakfast was good (lots of choices). Our room was big and always clean whenever we returned. I would stay again.

Room Tip: All rooms are suites. Our room faced the back parking lot. Very quiet.

Arrived at LAX about 20 hours late because of flight delays etc. but our GPS guided us directly to the hotel which was about an hours drive. And at 11 pm at night wasn't all that bad traffic wise..
Checking into the hotel was fast. I had a very bad cold and the young man working the desk offered me a Chicken cup a soup...which I thought was so very nice after the day we had...but we headed right to bed.....4 hour time difference was hard.
The next morning we heading into LA. Took the Gold Line Train that is about 10 minutes walk. It took us into Union Station. This was so very easy and convenient. Didn't need the car all week...
The breakfast was the standard Holiday stuff..nothing special but it did hold you over til lunch. Found the breakfast room staff abit distant and untalkative but could have been a language thing.
The beds were comfortable, rooms clean and quiet, great shower and linens. Also they have a bar fridge and micro wave which was great.
Main reason we came to the area was for the Tournament of Roses Parade. We took the train to the Old Pasadena stop and we found our seats..very convenient.
The hotel is close to malls and restaurants.
Free Parking and a small pool which we didn't use but alot of the hotel guest did..

Room Tip: take a top floor..we could hear people walking around..

Stayed here 3 nights due to location to Rose Bowl. We attended the BCS National Championship game. We arrived very late (midnight) due to a late flight. Check in was very quick room was very nice. Desk clerk was great, recognized gold status right away and was nice and friendly!! Only took a matter of minutes and we were all checked in. Maid service was excellent, we always returned to a clean room and plenty of supplies. Not once was anything ever left out or not cleaned. Breakfast each morning was always hot and ready before 6:30 am. Host kept everything well stocked and fresh even when very crowded. There was always ample seating available. Hotel is very convenient to interstates and other arterial highways. We stayed in a room with a king sized bed, lots of room and closet space. I must add this is a VERY quiet hotel that sits off Colorado Blvd. Not many restaurants close by but was not a problem since we were only there to sleep and rest. Highly recommend this hotel, clean, comfortable and friendly service.

Room Tip: Stayed on 4th floor, room faced the front parking lot (Colorado Blvd). Very quiet, no one above this...

You are a 10 minute walk to the Gold line metro system. It will bring you to downtown LA and Hollywood and many other tourist attractions for $1.50. I wondered why I rented a car. The staff were overly friendly and very helpful. I especially liked that it was a 10 minute walk to the Rose Bowl parade.
