"I" ....

WARNING!!!!!
"IF" you happen to be a light sleeper you may want to keep looking!!!
Trip reviews did NOT mention a train LITERALLY next to the hotel building :/ The NOISE & VIBRATION in the room feels like you can stick your arm out of the window & touch it! Very annoying not to mention enormously distracting!

I have tried everything!!!
Sleeping under the covers, placing the bed pillows on top of my ears, attempting to drain out the train rattling & vibration by increasing the t.v. volume. You name it I have tried it ....to NO AVAIL :(

If you have NO choice due to the limited accommodations in this area bring EFFECTIVE earplugs IF NOT you too will feel the NEED to pull your hair OUT!!!! Not fun!

The service here is BEYOND excellent!
NOW-I comprehend why!

Verdict:
If you can sleep through a tornado this place is GREAT if you wake up with a fly buzzing the room think twice!!!

Second time to this area, the previous year I had stayed at the Best Western next door and this was a night and day difference. Holiday Inn had locking security doors that actually had the latches installed, breakfast was more than just cold cereal and fruit, room was clean and well kept, the whole place had the feel that the staff actually cared about the business

Room Tip: stayed on top floor far from elevator and it was extremely quiet and comfortable

Between the cleanliness of the rooms and hotel in general, and the complimentary breakfast, this hotel will be my go-to choice on the rare occasions I have business in the Porterville area. My stay here was also a first at a Holiday Inn Express, anywhere. So thanks to them and the impression they made with me, I now look to HIEs first when having to travel for business purposes.

It was a very nice and clean hotel. We came to Porterville for a family member's wedding and it was the closest to the event. Right off of 190 so you can't miss it. We liked the Burger King in the parking lot for a late night snack and the market across the street for some drinks. The beds weren't the softest, but we were just there one night so it didn't really matter to us. Fresh baked cookies in the front lobby, and although we ate breakfast at the Black Bear Diner down the street, the breakfast there looked a lot better than most hotel chain breakfasts. Overall, good stay!

This was truly a nice, modern, comfortable, hotel, at a great price. The room and bed were very quiet and comfortable. Climate control was hi tech, easy to regulate and quiet. Had a really nice nights sleep, after a long travel day.

very nice hotel, kinda in the middle of nothing. Clean, nice quiet rooms, good shower/water pressure. Front desk reception was very friendly & the girl working the breakfast buffet was super sweet. During breakfast I watched the hostess as she chatted with every guest taking a genuine interest in everyone. She even made me a little to-go bag (banana, apple, muffin & bottle water) for my long road trip. What a pleasant little hotel. Not much in this area so food choices are limited but the pancakes on the breakfast buffett were pretty good

Room Tip: request a room facing the back to reduce road noise (not that it was bad anyway)

Send a night on my trip from LA to Sequoia. Front desk was very friendly and profesional. Room was great and quiet, I had a great and relaxing night after a 5h road trip.

I spend 21 nights, mostly in HI facility during my US vacation, and this one was on the top three (and was one of the less expensive)!
