“If you like clean…”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

This is my second extended stay (11 NIghts) at this facility. As one who travels frequently, I have the opportunity to stay at many motels. This was one of my pleasant experiences.
The Housekeeping for my stay was some of the best I have had. The staff was very nice, accommodating and actually cleaned the room. :-)
Very impressed with this housekeeping staff.

During the xmas rush aftermath, as we were traveling back home, we stopped with our dog, to stay the night at this
Holiday Inn. They were very accommodating for us, the room was clean, bed comfortable. Other than the ugly granite
in the bathrooms, we had no complaints, the bathrooms were very clean, no mold or mildew anywhere.
Their breakfast at this facility was better than some of the other holiday inns we have stayed at, very nice selection
of food, even little omelets, and of course their wonderful cinnamon rolls, yogurts, bananas, sausage, pancakes,
cereals.
We also found out they have a shuttle service that can take you to the Sacramento airport, so anyone that
may need to fly out of Sacramento could use this service, and leave their car at this facility, after staying their
for the evening. A nice added extra feature of this hotel.
Right across the road from this hotel is a convenient shopping area, target, Costco, Best buys, plus a few
restaurants, Red Robin, In and Out, and starbucks just to name a few. So we really like this area, it's not
quite as isolated as some of the other Holiday Inns that we have stopped at in the past.

The rate for a King room is $120. As AAA members we got it for $108, and they upgraded us to a suite. We had everything we could possibly want: microwave, coffee maker, refrigerator, etc. The room was huge, the bathroom was stocked with everything we could want. The shower was good, and the hot water came quickly. The room was quiet even though it was near the freeway.

Breakfast the next day was included. It was a serve-yourself buffet and had anything you could want. The cinnamon rolls are fabulous!

Stayed here whilst our son was playing in the State Cup soccer tournament at the Woodland Community Center. Judging from the number of jerseys at breakfast it seems most people in the hotel were doing the same. It is about a 10 minute drive to the Woodland Community Center. (If you are staying on business on weekends in the Fall, you might want to check if there is a tournament going on if you don't want to be overrun by hoards of soccer players).
The hotel decor has newish, run-of-the mill budget hotel decor, nothing out of the ordinary. It gets a low rating for the following:

1. Parking Lot - Not enough parking spaces for the number of rooms - the parking lot is really small, too small, Twice we came back to the hotel and found there were no spaces available, once the clerk just shrugged and told us to go park on the street. Call me crazy but I kind of would like to park in the hotel I'm booked at, especially since the street outside the hotel is kind of isolated and right by the freeway - hello, car thieves! Fortunately, a second desk clerk with a little more sense of customer service offered to move his own car and the hotel shuttle to free up spaces but no idea what happened to the guests who arrived after us.
2. Breakfast - If your idea of a gourmet meal can be found in the dumpster behind McDonalds then you will probably love the hotel breakfast. Milk from the refrigerator was curdled, despite being within the sell-by date, Raisin-Bran was stale, watery orange-juice and some bizarre made-in-a-laboratory egg substitute rubber puck. You will get far, far better in the equivalent level of the Marriott chain.
3. Room Allocation issues - Booked 2 rooms together, but the hotel originally had us on a completely different floor from our children, despite a booking request asking for inter-connecting rooms. At check-in we said this wouldn't work and were immediately given 2 different rooms on the same floor. When we walked over to the rooms we realized that they were on opposite sides of the corridor and down the hallway from each other. Another trip back to reception and we got 2 rooms next to each other but without an interconnecting door. I don't know if they don't have any rooms with interconnecting doors but I am surprised that it took 3 tries to get rooms next to each other when the hotel clearly wasn't full and they had the reservation clearly showing there were children with us.

Also, I am just looking at the professional photo of the indoor pool that is on Trip-advisor - it could use a little clarification. The pool is really quite nice but is very small - it's certainly not for adults swimming laps, great for little kids to splash around in but get any more than about 5 or 6 of them in there and the pool is full

After a long day of driving we stopped here without a reservation, lucky they had a cancellation. Upon signing up for their rewrads program we were updated to a king room with a sitting area, nice to have the extra room. Room was clean and well maintained. Fresh baked cookies at reception were a nice touch. Front desk clerk was also happy to provide a print out of local restaurants which helped late in the day. Breakfast was the normal, cereal, bagels, yogurt, etc.

The hotel we typically stay at was fully booked, so our family settled for Holiday Inn Express. Well, what a delightful stay we had! The entrance is spacious and clean and the staff kindly greeted us. With an indoor pool, jacuzzi and workout facility - each member was happy. Our room was beautiful, the beds were comfortable and there was great space to spread out. Lastly, the Internet worked seamlessly for our son who telecommutes for school. For the price, comfort and indoor pool, we're making this hotel or first choice in the future!

We've stayed at this property numerous times, and have left pleased on all occasions. The staff is attentive, the rooms are always clean, the breakfast hot & plentiful, and the shuttle service operates flawlessly. The convenience to the airport is great, and less traffic in Woodland is appreciated. I'd highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a great experience.
