“good place to stop”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Day 2 of our road trip & Santa Nella seems to be a regular stop for us on this route. We usually stay elsewhere but decided to change it up this time.
Easy check in. Gift of bottled water, chips & granola bars for priority club members. The parking is dark & isolated. The place was clean. The pool was above average size & had good lighting. The beds were not very comfortable. The AC unit was noisy & had to run all night to sleep comfortably. Really good breakfast with ham omelettes, biscuits, cinnamon rolls, bananas, yogurt, oatmeal & cereal. Sadly the coffee was not good.

if you have to stay in this area, this is a great place to do so. yes, there is a bit of a cow smell outside, but that would be at any of the hotels in the area, and it's not even that bad. our room was 87. for two people/king bed/downstairs, and that included tax. the room was very nice, firm comfortable bed with soft high-quality bedding. the air conditioner was cool and quiet. we had a big screen flat tv with plenty of channels. the swimming pool was large and inviting with outdoor lounging area. it was big enough to actually swim to exercise and leave enough pool for the younger folks to have fun in. the next morning we ate the hot breakfast provided by the hotel. it was great. we ate: biscuits, sausage, eggs, AND cinnamon rolls. they also had fruit, bagel, pancakes, along with cereal and yogurt. ---- split pea anderson's is right across the street, and if you've never been to this place, you should go once at least for the cultural reference of it. --- for such a non-great part of california, this is a good value and an exceptional place to stay. it really felt like a vacation there. :)

This place surprised us! Very clean, comfortable beds. Newer bathroom surfaces. Very nice front office staff.
The free breakfast was actually pretty good. Hard boiles eggs, pancakes, yogurt, pastries, juice, milk, breads, some fruit.
We paid $77 with military discount for 4 of us. Definitely a good deal.

We spent a night with kids and did not really like it. It is motel style place, not very clean, and old.
The pool is nice, breakfast was Ok. I would not recommend to stay here with family - Ok, to spend a night if you do not have any other options.

Room Tip: If you just continue a few miles on I-5 towards SF, you'll find another Holiday Inn much better...

This motel is intended for overnight stays by travelers using nearby Interstate 5. It has clean accommodations to refresh motorists on their way to final destinations. An outdoor pool, spa and an exercise room complement room facilities. A refrigerator in the room supplements an ice machine in the corridor. Wi-fi and cable TV are provided with chairs and a table. Business travelers, however, may be disappointed by the absence of a desk in the room and by a limited business center in the lobby.

A buffet breakfast at the motel, parking close to the room, and nearby access to the highway allow for efficient traveling with minimal delay. There are a number of restaurants within walking distance or a short drive from the motel.

This is an older Holiday Inn Express in a remote but busy place. Santa Nella is out in the middle of no where, near nothing, but on I-5 which is a major highway through the middle of California connecting Los Angeles with the San Francisco Bay Area. Santa Nella is one of those "oasis" type places with all the hotels, gas stations and fast food you can think of. This "oasis" also features Pea Soup Andersen's, a well known restaurant which is highly recommended. The Holiday Inn Express is probably the nicest hotel in this oasis, even though it is aging and a little worn around the edges. The service is very good and the included breakfast is the best I have had since my stay at the HIE in Rapid City, SD.
