“Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

The hotel staff was very helpful. I goofed my reservation through orbitz and there was nothing they could about that, but this employee took the time to set us up for two membership plans. We stay here all the time to visit family because it's the best hotel in this area and this is the first time we were asked about that. We've never had any complaints here and it's always super clean. Just make sure to ask about their free memberships is they don't ask you :)

My husband and I are big fans of this Holiday Inn Express & Suites Hotel. It's easy access, perfect rest stop before beginning your Yosemite experience or upon exiting before that long drive home! Sounds like a sound bite, but it's true! My husband was working at a local manufacturing plant for 7 years. Many times as the Plant Mgr. he would have to stay in town instead of commuting home to Fresno about 35 min. away. Quite frequently I would stay with him during the longer stays. That said we were always comfortable, the rooms were inviting, clean, and restful. The staff was always helpful, attitudes were more than hospitable and kind. Over the years we fell in love with our breakfast hostess, Socorro! She deserves lots of raises! She is a gem and our biggest blessing for the morning perk ups and breakfast! Monica the Assistant Mgr/Desk is very helpful and very friendly as well! My husband just changed jobs and we are definitely going to miss this great group of people!

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper the freeway traffic is a problem with rooms to the northeast. Ourwise, th...

Got up at 12ish, 2ish and 4 ish to the tooting. Wish we had read the reviews before booking. The hotel itself is nice, pool, laundry, computer room and exercise room, all small but adequate. Large breakfast room and guest room is large too.

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room but I think you'd hear the trains anywhere.

Dear Valued Guest,

I want to Thank You for taking the time to share your experience about our hotel. I see you had a concern about the trains that are near our hotel, although it is not normal for it to run at night and multiple times. I do apologize for the noise and hope on your next stay we can block a room on the opposite end of the hotel to ensure it is quieter. We look forward to your next stay.

Kind Regards

High ceiling in ground floor room made room feel large.
Comfortable bed.
Good value (paid $70 on Priceline for $125 room - Sept '13).
Nice breakfast area, but why do US hotels use disposable-everything (plates, cups, cutlery, ...). Zero marks for Holiday Inn for environmental stewardship.

Room Tip: ground floor room had high ceiling.

Definitely above average among Holiday inns, ~ 2 hours to Yosemite or Sequoia, with nice rooms, hospitable front desk, and great breakfast! Highly recommended if looking for lodging half way from bay area to the national parks

Decent hotel, nothing special. Rooms are very spacious and have an extra seating area. Downsides are the noisy airconditioning and the fact that you can hear the upstairs neighbours walk. There is a good free breakfast. Pool didn't look so clean but the spa was really comfy.

Dear Valued Guest

I want to Thank You for sharing your experience. I do see overall you had a great stay although with some concerns. I do apologize for the noisy neighbors and perhaps on your next stay we can assign your room on the 3rd floor as that is the quietest. We do apologize for the pool, given the pump was down for a couple days and it is back up and running. We look forward to your next stay.
