This is a new hotel and it is fantastic. I travel a lot for business and stay in expensive hotels all of the time like the Ritz and Conrad. I was NOT disappointed in this stay but rather extremely pleased with how pleasant it is. Keeping in mind, it is a Holiday Inn in Porterville and costs less than $150 a night, I thought the rooms are very nicely furnished and extremely well constructed. Nice stone floor in the bathroom and corian like counters. Nice carpet, color schemes, toiletries, showers, pool, jacuzzi, breakfast, staff.

I would ask for a room on the parking lot side as the back side of the hotel does have a busy road behind it (I stayed on parking lot side). Also the sheets were a little cheap. But the cookies at the front desk were good enough to make up for it!

the amenities and location were fine. But was not told at check-in about the loud and noisy road behind the hotel. Wal-mart distribution center located behind a truck went by quite often and made for a long night trying to sleep. Maybe other side of hotel is quieter

Excellent bed, rooms, sparkling clean, can't ask for much more.
Rooms quiet and location secure

Free breakfast ok, eggs so-so, otherwise pretty good.

A tad expensive for Porterville, but an excellent overall experience.

I was traveling alone on business from out of state. This hotel seemed to have good reviews on TripAdvisor.com, so I took a chance. I had never been to Porterville and had many questions for the desk staff. They were incredibly helpful, especially one young lady. I believe her name may have been Amy. (Forgive me if I'm wrong.) I needed a haircut and she volunteered to contact her personal hair dresser. I asked about where to find a place to buy some of those great CA oranges and she not only mapped out a few locations of produce stands for me, but she further researched additional options. She was very personable and I appreciated all she did! I also appreciated the gift bag that the gentleman who checked me in handed to me. What a great touch! It's those little extras, like a bottle of water and a snack, that makes customers remember truly excellent service & care.

I paid a little extra for the King Suite, and it was well worth it! The room was excellent! It was clean and spacious. It was equipped with fridge, extra sink, microwave, iron & board, hairdryer, etc. I really liked the little extras, such as the body scrub, sewing kit, in-wall bathroom shelves, extra large shower head, extra pillows, fast internet connection, coffee maker, etc. The continental breakfast had many warm & cold options & I was quite satisfied with this. My only regret is that, after passing all those wonderful orange groves on the way in, there were no oranges at the breakfast buffet. I came in late, so if they did have any, it's possible they were gone by the time I arrived. They did provide fresh orange juice, cranberry juice, several milk options, and coffee/tea, aside from the eggs, cereal, yogurt, toast, bagels, sausage, muffins, cinnamon buns, bananas, etc.

I've stayed in many hotels. I cannot recall any that topped my experience here. I would highly recommend the Holiday Inn Express in Porterville, CA.

  • Liked — The BEST customer service & clean, spacious room w/lots of extras.
  • Disliked — No CA oranges on the buffet.

Stayed here for three nights for a family wedding and the accommodation was excellent. The bedrooms are large and very well decorated. The beds are really comfortable and the linen/towels are very good. Breakfast is basic and only okay. There is a lovely heated pool at the rear of the hotel but unfortunately this is backing onto a busy road. All in all we had a lovely stay.

this hotel just opened in january. its simply great, has flat screen t.v in rooms, the bedding is great and loved the breakfast. had seen this hotel being build up for last one year and saw that its finally opened. i go for business to porterville and been staying at the best western, but this new place in town is wonderfull. the price that i paid is nothing compared to the rooms this place has and the service, fthe internet service is the fastest, just wondering what kind of service they have. i would say if anyone is going for business or to the sequoia park should stay at this place for sure. every penny is worth it.
