“Nicely renovated property, just avoid the rooms which open to indoor pool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

Large property, so ensure your room doesn't share a wall with the indoor pool (lots of rooms do...it's what makes the pool an indoor one. The issue is the classic "holidome" problem from back in the day...the modest yet unrelenting smell of chlorine in your room. No remodel can solve it. But it's avoidable...get a room that doesn't share a wall with the indoor pool; done. Property is in great shape, free breakfast is ridiculously good. I'd stay here again without question (just in a different room). 40 minutes to the south entry of Sequoia.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms which open up to the indoor pool.

Stayed for one night on our way from Las Vegas to Yosemite.

We were a little concerned when approaching the hotel seeing it was squeezed in between an airfield and the freeway, but this proved not to be any issue at all.

The hotel as such was quite OK – clean and good room and bathroom, however as in so many hotels we again had to accept a quite noisy air condition.

But the main obstacle was the service i.e. on check in we had to queue for 15 minutes, as there was only one receptionist. Likewise, the service in the breakfast room was more or less a joke, with two persons serving quite many guests. At one time they ran out of plates, and we had to wait 3-4 minutes for new ones. Amazing that hotels do not understand that waiting time no matter if it is on business travel or vacation is so important to most guests.

During the afternoon the fire-alarm went off – that can happen, but it is really not comforting when the staff explains that this is normal as there is a lot of smoke in the kitchen when they start cooking.

Still, if the Hotel could staff up, it would be very good value for the money.

Greeted warmly by front desk. Room was clean and beds comfortable. The outdoor pool was great! Temperature good and lots of poolside chairs and lounges. The vanity in the bathroom was lower than average but this wasn't a problem. The best Holiday Inn breakfast so far as it was in the restaurant with lots of fresh fruit and large glasses of juice. The service was impeccable and speedy and the buffet warm and delicious. Hard to believe it was for free!

..... When you book with holiday Inn and this place is no different. Friendly staff, good sized and clean rooms, along with a convenient location. One gripe; I wasn't able to check in without leaving my credit card on file (I hate this) being told "it's in case of incidentals"
Me - "but I won't be charging incidentals"
Desk - "we still need a card"
Me - "why?"
Desk - "in case you want to charge something to your room"
Me - "but it's already 11pm and I won't"
Desk - "we still need a card"
Me - " how can that be if it's only for room charges
Desk - "I don't know"

It was a late check in and I was tired so fave up at this point.

My company set up a long term guest at this hotel that had a dog. They worked with our company and negotiated a fantastic deal to allow my clients pet to stay. They are fantastic to work with. Peter, Vanessa and Brian is whom I have spoken with and have been great!

When we checked in we didn't ask about breakfast. After a comfortable nights sleep we headed to the restaurant and noticed they were breaking down a breakfast bar. The server confirmed there is breakfast included with some guest rates. I went to the front desk to inquire and was told our rate included breakfast. The front desk clerk asked the general manger and he came out and apologized for the over site. He graciously comped our delicious breakfast! Thank you for making our overnight stay so nice. Also, we ate in the sports bar for dinner and Phyllis was a great server and the food was really good. Overall, great stay and Sequoia National Park is close by.
