We really liked our stay here from the friendly receptionist, the clean and spacious room, the helpful breakfast lady, the free fruit/cookie at check in, and the close location to a shopping center. Breakfast was typical - yogurts, breads, cinnamon rolls, cereal, pancake maker, eggs, sausage, gravy, etc.

I stayed at this location for five nights while exploring all around the bay. The room was clean but just a little worn, but nothing to complain about. Breakfast was adequate other than strange tasting orange juice (hooray for nearby stores and a mini fridge). The staff was pleasant and helpful, location was convenient and quiet, Wi-Fi was dependable and... More

Stayed here on a business trip. My colleague booked first and emailed a link so I could book in the same hotel. The link takes you to the IHS 'find a hotel' page.

After an afternoon in San Francisco we drove to this hotel to stay for one night with a family of five. Staff were nice and friendly and they were quick to check us in. Room was clean and comfortable for five people, including the pull out sofa. Buffet breakfast was also good. Would recommend this hotel for sure.

What you expect from a Holiday Inn. Nice, clean, large rooms with good working facilities. Good location. Lost a star because of lousy shower head and water pressure. Good location, next to a shopping plaza with a Target store.

Was greeted nicely on arrival. Asked for a bigger room, was given a decent size room. Parking is sufficient for the place. The breakfast is not a grand one, but not bad. Live counter is however missing. Go for it if you get it for cheap as this is a no frills properly
