Socorro was awesome making sure that the breakfast food was replenished quickly when we were eating with a bus load of travelers. She was great at making conversation with many of the travelers as well as us.

Stay here. The rooms are clean, the service is excellent, the breakfast is decent. The quality you get for the price is outstanding. The location is great - right off the freeway - and there's a wonderful steak house close by.

Two people that helped make our stay at the Holiday Inn Express were Emelda the young lady who helped our reservation and Socorro the woman in charge of breakfast service and actually all the staff were wonderful. Thank you all again, we will be back when traveling to that area.

I had a great stay here at Holiday Inn Express & Suites. My room was clean and comfy and Makayla, the Front Desk Supervisor, was very helpful and informative. She and the staff were very friendly and made me feel at home. Me and my old fishing poll will be back to take in all the beauty again sometime soon!

We have stayed at this hotel several times while visiting at nearby Valley State Prison. We have always been completely satisfied with the room and the service.

Our overall stay was great. We stayed one night and then decided to stay another. We had to get a different room, but while our family was at the waterpark, housekeeping moved our stuff for us.

We stayed here one night during our visit to Yosemite. As we booked our accommodation late, this was the nearest hotel. We purchased a "Yosemite package", which included one night's stay, a car entry pass into the national parks, as well as two tickets to the Sugar Pine Railway ride. First of all, this hotel is located near some kind... More

The hotel is situated just off the freeway so easy to get to but it is surprisingly quiet and the room was spacious and very clean and tidy. Free breakfast was a bonus and although we came down close to finish time food was still hot and tasty.

Our stay here was great! The staff were friendly and helpful. Makayla was very accommodating and a wealth of information. The pool was cold and the hot tub was a little warmer. I was definitely disappointed in that after driving all day. 😕 The beds were comfortable and the breakfast great!
