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. Imelda at the front desk was THE BEST as were all of them, but we dealt mostley with her. By far the best customer... More

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!

My daughter and I booked an overnight stay so she could attend a work-sponsored training session. There were two team members at the front desk, Makayla and Monica, who were very gracious and friendly upon our arrival. I requested for a late check out on Saturday so I did not have to wait too long in a public area for... More

We stayed with family at Holiday Inn Express & Suites at Chowchilla for 2 nights - as part of our Yosemite vacation. This is a very nice hotel for families and staff was also very helpful. They have a Yosemite guide that we found very helpful.

There isn't much more to say here than it was a Holiday Inn... it was exactly as you would expect one to be. We stayed for one night, it was comfortable, clean, friendly (for the most part) so it was good. The view from our window was of a busy road and a truck delivery area, but it wasn't too... More
