We have stayed at a few Holiday Inn Express hotels in our two week holiday and this one was the least impressive! It's a little tired and there were insects in the bathroom. On arrival, at 7pm the receptionist was abrupt and unfriendly and so unwelcoming... So unlike the other hotels during our holiday! The breakfast is just ok, they... More

The hotel is clean and good. The only thinking is breakfast is lacking variety food. No waffle and pancake was made by machine. But the kitchen staff is nice and friendly. There is nothing fancy in local restaurants you would like to visit.

My husband and I stopped here on the spur of the moment as we were traveling from the Eastern Sierra to the Monterey Peninsula after our Yosemite vacation. We weren't expecting much, it's a chain hotel among numerous other chain hotels in Oakdale, but we were pleasantly surprised. The room was quiet and clean and spacious. The hotel looked new....

We chose this place because we wanted to stay for a couple of nights and do Yosemite NP one of the days. On our day of arrival, it was time to laundry for the trip. Good room, clean, everything we needed. Only complaint is the old style A/C units with just the knob controls. Can't run the fan constantly so... More

I'm used to getting hotels in the $130-$200 range. This hotel was the top-rated hotel in this town tonight. It went for $111. It is a small town with many hotels, so I thought maybe it was a low price area. Unfortunately, what I found out is that it isn't a low price area; it just doesn't have good hotels,... More

Good location if you are on road for Yosemite Valley, breakfast is complimentary, not to much choice but ok, clean and friendly. Con: laundry is located on the ground floor, close to the rooms and could be noisy.
