We always try to stay at this H.I. when in town for business. The entire staff is very helpful & friendly, especially Cinthia, Lilia, Gabriel & Sergio in the restaurant. They know us by name and are always smiling, it truly does make a difference.

It is a long time since I stayed at a Holiday Inn property and, if this hotel is any guide, I will be staying more often in future. The room was well sized, clean, and a small settee was a nice change from the customary chair. Bed was exceptionally comfortable. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Two niggles. The shampoo, conditioner... More

The attentiveness and accommodation of the staff make us look forward to our return trips to this hotel. This is an aging property and we have had some instances when we needed maintenance. Lawrence remedied our first refrigerator problem, and has, always with a smile, helped us when we've experienced any other issues. Generally the beds are very comfortable, but... More

Nice place to stay for a night or two. The staff at breakfast was really attentive. One of the young ladies even brought us to go coffee cups before we could ask for them. The room was clean and comfortable. The pool area was nice, the hot tub very relaxing. There's a few flowering trees near the pool and we... More

This is an older hotel which could use some refurbishment. Lobby is small. The room was clean and adequate, but it is not in an ideal area. It is close to a freeway and there are not a lot of dining choices. The staff was very nice, check in was fast. The bed was comfortable, the room had a sitting... More

Someone was playing music very loud one night & staff was quick to respond, as well as follow up afterwards to make sure all was well. The free shuttle to/from the airport was a bonus and as...

Stayed last weekend. Once we arrived, I showered and when I got out, my son had an empty pill bottle trying to sucks the air out of it to stick to his mouth. I immediately checked his mouth for pills and there was no residue or signs of pills. Called poison control and followed directions from them. I then reported... More

I have stayed here many times and every time the staff is very friendly, the rooms are clean, and the breakfast is good. I enjoy having an easily accessible bar in the hotel and the shuttle is very convenient for getting around the area.
