Reviewed yesterday NEW

Staff were great, especially Gladis and Dolores in the breakfast area, and Zaid who drove the hotel shuttle. Front desk staff were challenging with scheduling shuttles. Room assigned was not as expected-1 bed instead of 2. Short distance to Old Town is great.

The hotel shuttle picked me up at the airport and Jose and Elia made sure all of my needs were met. They provided a recommendation for dinner in...

We recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Express. The hotel itself is right off the 5 Freeway near the airport. Didn't seem like a great area to be walking around but, a quick drive to downtown. We stayed here mainly because of early flights. The staff is very nice and accommodating. They were very helpful with scheduling a free shuttle...

We only needed an overnight to catch a plane the next day. This was the perfect place. 20 minute walk to Old Town where we had a fantastic lunch and craft beer, then a stop at Cold Stone. The hotel is nicely decorated outdoors with lots of succulents in pots. Inside is very clean, room was great, bed super, and...
