“Friendly & outgoing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

Only here 1 night but really enjoyed it. Liked the free wine and beer tasting, and the staff was very courteous and outgoing. The room was a very good size, and the bed was very comfortable. I would definitely stay here again! Great value.

Hi There Chuck F ~
Thank You for your compliments about our staff; I will be showing off this brand - new review to them today!
We are also happy to hear you experienced and enjoyed our reception. In case you forgot....the wine was from Ancient Peaks Winery and the beer from Firestone Walker brewery, they are both some of the area's finest purveyors ( in our humble opinion ).
Please come and visit next time you travel back to California, the entire team at Holiday Inn Express & Suites Atascadero will be here to welcome you back.
Enjoy the rest of your Summer,
Destiny Jacobs & Team HIE-Atascadero

Stellar service! Friendly, engaged staff that actually pays attention to guests. Everyone is a VIP at this hotel. The property itself is just as welcoming. You feel as though you at a much more expensive hotel. Citrus water, iced tea and cookies in the lobby, nice finishes in the large rooms, and tons of pillows. I love pillows.

Breakfast is great, with enough choices to satisfy any picky eater.

I'll say it again - friendly and competent staff!

Nice staff, clean rooms, 5 yrs old but still looks news. Beer wine tasting Tuesdays and Thursdays. Very comfortable beds. We used to stay at The Carlton but had lousy service and found bed bugs in two rooms! It was little pricey this week and last but I'm sure it's due to the mid state fair going on. You won't be disappointed. Also grab a free cookie and ice water in lobby. There free! Thanks staff at Holiday Inn! I do feel a little smarter....

We stayed at this property as a mid-way stop between San Francisco and San Diego. We typically choose either a Holiday Inn Express, Hampton Inn, or Hilton Garden property to stay at when on the road. This is by far the best Holiday Inn Express we have ever stayed at. The property is fairly new, perhaps a just a few years old. It is elegant and upscale for a Holiday Inn Express. The front desk rep was friendly and check in was quick. We were delighted with our room, to say the least. We chose one of the "suites" as we booked off the internet and it said the matresses in the suites were a higher grade and the cost for the upgrade was minimal. The room was huge and had everything one could need. We had a two-queen room. We had a fridge, a bar area, a sofa and table, and desk in addition to the two beds. The bathroom was nice as well. The beds were super-comfy. The room was super-clean. Front desk rep advised us on where to eat dinner and it was a good recommendation. The breakfast was much better than the breakfast at the Hampton we stayed at on the same trip. They had cheese omelettes, sausage patties, bisquits and gravy in addition to all the breads for toasting, yogurt, fresh fruit, etc.. Really impressed with this place and will stay again in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: We try to get top floor but there were no two-queen suites on the top floor (there were 3 floors...

Dear Grandma Pink,
I am so excited to hear about how much you enjoyed your stay with us!
The entire staff is going to be happy all the extra touches that they (we) do are noticed.
We have recently added the fresh fruit cups to our breakfast options, and we are also glad you were able to attend our guest reception; featuring local beer & wine as well.
We just had our 5 year birthday in July and we have remained #1 in our brand in the area every year since opening. It seems like you are familiar with a few other hotel brands and we modestly accept your comparisons.
Again, thank you so very much for helping to spread the word about our property and staff and we hope to see you back shortly.
Best Wishes ,
Destiny Jacobs
Front Office Manager.

Very happy with our stay. Very comfortable. Very clean. Decent breakfast. No complaints except of course we would rather the price was a bit lower, but I suppose it was on par with other comparable chains like Hampton Inn.

Maggie at the front desk was very pleasant and helpful, offerIng good advice about services that were nearby. She pointed out everything that was offered by the hotel and reminded us if we needed anything to let her know. Her attitude - professional, yet friendly - has really impressed us. We will be sure to recommend this Holiday Inn to our friends.

We stayed here for 2 nights. Everything about the hotel was perfect.

The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Rooms were clean and quiet, and the beds very comforable.

A very well managed hotel. Would definitely stay here again.
