“One night stay after Christmas Party”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

The wife and I decide to stay after a Christmas Party, so we could have some drinks during the party. The is located just of the US198 highway, so very easy to get too. The rooms are very nice with king bed, writing desk with charging station, seating area with loveseat, microwave, refrigerator, 42 flat screen TV with 43 channels and free HBO, free Wi-Fi, coffee maker, iron and ironing board. One draw back is the bathroom is small. Free breakfast included. They have lounge, restaurant, fitness center, business center, outdoor heated pool and indoor heated pool with hot tub.

The conference is set up for any size of event. Worked really well for The Filipino-American Association Christmas party with a couple of hundred people. Everyone had a great time. The catering staff did a good job since we had a set down service. The meal was really good, servicing NY Steak, rice, steamed veggies, salad and strawberry cheese cake. Really enjoyed it. The was a bar offered for drinks.

The hotel and conference center is a good place to hold an event.

Room Tip: Really do not think it makes much difference since not view from any room, but would suggest a first...

I planned a romantic getaway for my husband and I, and this Hotel was perfect. The staff was very nice and attentive. The rooms were very clean and well maintained. The bed was extremely comfortable and the temperature in the room was relaxing. We plan to visit again soon.

I only stayed one night, but everything about the stay was great. Visalia was a mid-way stopping point on a trip to northern California, and this hotel was perfect. The price was reasonable, the staff were very friendly and helpful, and the included breakfast buffet was excellent.

My room was on the fifth floor facing the freeway, but I didn't notice the traffic noise other reviewers have complained about. The room was clean and appeared well maintained. The bed was comfortable and included both soft and firm pillows. The buffet, aside from some dry, rigid pancakes, was delicious and offered a wide range of choices. Much better than the continental breakfast you might get at other hotels.

I spent two nights here, and it was a pleasant experience. The lobby of the hotel is modern, clean, and professional. All of the staff was very nice and helpful. The room was clean, the beds comfortable. There is a restaurant and a bar on site, and the staff in both were very friendly every time that I went in. I would highly recommend this hotel as a great place to stay -- it's a little outside Visalia, but in such a small town "a little outside" means a few minutes drive.

The restaurant has a breakfast buffet that is loaded with everything you could possibly imagine for around $10 -- cheaper than ordering anything else off the menu, and it was good.

Room Tip: I had a room near the housekeeping staff's offices, and they don't waste anytime -- they get...

Hotel itself is good. Nice rooms and nice lobby.

We got a nice and comfortable room. Zero view but it was ok.

The only thing was the elevators. Only one of the two was working and it took forever, even if nobody else was using it. Most people, including me, opted to just use the stairs.

Other than that, good hotel, good price and good location.

We stayed here this past weekend because we were in town for an event. Our room was fine, I liked that each bed had 4 pillows instead of the 2 that are usually standard! Our children enjoyed the indoor pool, but it gets very steamy and loud in there since there in no ventilation! Also, if you have a room that faces the highway, it is very loud!! Kept me awake a lot! The breakfast buffet in the morning had a large variety and the kids ate free, which was a bonus!

Room Tip: Don't get a room that faces the highway!

The Holiday Inn Visalia Hotel & Conference Center Team would like to apologize for the inconvenience you encountered during your stay. We are deeply concerned when a guest does not enjoy their stay and thus affects the total guest experience. Since we understand our guests have different comfort levels, we highly encourage all our guests to inform the front desk agents when their room is unacceptable. Furthermore, our hotel also offers an outdoor swimming pool that accommodates guests who prefer a more traditional pool setting. However, we are extremely pleased you enjoyed our bedding organization and breakfast buffet.

We truly appreciate your feedback as this assists in providing a better quality product for our guests. If you make a future reservation at our hotel, please inform us at info@altamonthotels.com and we will do our very best to accommodate you in your preferred room location. We hope you will choose to stay at our hotel again, as it will be a pleasure to serve you.


Thank you,

Clean and quiet room with lots of space. Good breakfast. Great location near Sequoia National Park and Kings Canyon National Park. I would recommend this hotel as a great place to stay close to the big trees.
