“Nice hotel but overpriced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

Stayed here two nights in room 234. Upon arrival, was greeted nicely and given a sack of snacks: water, peanuts, granola bar, SunChips. Room was clean & spacious, and had a sofa.
Desk area was good size. Bed was comfortable with good quality linens and both soft & firm pillows Refrig, microwave, coffee maker, LED TVand internet connection area. Bathroom was good size with large mirror. Would have liked more light next to the mirror. Decor is modern with dark wood. Room was pretty sound proof. Interior corridors with elevator. Good breakfast with eggs, make-it-yourself pancakes, cold cereal, really ripe bananas, yogurt, coffee, etc. I do like it that Holiday Inn has a very good, hot breakfast with price of the room. Hotel is on a main street, easy to find. Taco Bell is next door, as well as Asian restaurants nearby. Hotel is well kempt and I felt safe here. Internet access in your room is available, if you want it. Room was $109 for Saturday night and $159 for Sunday night. it's a nice hotel but overpriced. Maybe it's more because it's not too far from Mineta Intl Airport.

This was not the best Holiday Inn Express I have stayed at but it was still pretty good.

The service was good, the rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable, and we enjoyed the breakfast. The downsides are the location and the lack of a pool.

Overall our stay here was good.

Stayed there a week ago in Room 109.

It is on the ground floor and right next to the reception but we did not hear any noise whatsoever.

Its on the ground floor facing the courtyard car park.... clean room - but on opening the toilet door - there is a very foul smell (like urine ??). it was however, gone the next morning.

We did not complain as we were in/out most of the time and only staying for a night.

Front desk staff (Shani ??) are wonderful.

The breakfast was sufficient.

Wifi was spotty - my wife could log on - I could not.

Hotel was nice. Clean room and staff was friendly. Breakfast was just ok. No pool and very small workout room. You can use the gym down the street. But not convenient. Not the greatest of neighborhoods.

From the cool modern decor to the comfy pillows, this hotel was luxurious and reasonably priced. The decor is stylish and the illuminated bathroom mirror makes you feel like you're staying in a swank trendy boutique hotel!

All this AND breakfast! And what do I behold at breakfast but biscuits and gravy! Say what?! Yes! Delicious, too!

All in all, a great stay!

Smallest of the HI expresses I have stayed at but will be using this location in the future. Hotel stays clean. Building and rooms inside look well taken care of. TV,s are mounted on the wall but move to accommodate sitting at the desk. The lady who took care of the breakfast area was phenomenal and took care of everything in that area with pride and a smile.
