“Good location, but noisy”
Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for 3 nights while visiting the Fremont area. Our room had 2 queen beds separated by a partition, which was a nice feature. The room and bathroom were clean and modern looking, free WiFi worked well, the pool had a decent size and was well maintained, the gym was very small and only had 1 treadmill. Free breakfast was plentiful. Staff was very friendly. There is a huge strip mall with restaurants and a Target, which is convenient. The hotel is located next to I880, which provides easy access to other parts of Bay Area, but the noise can be unpleasant to some folks. Better ask for a room not facing the highway.

This hotel is well managed and We will stay here again.

Dear TerenceT,

It is a great privilege to have a TripAdvisor Senior Contributor guests like you stay at our hotel and make time to describe in detail what to expect in a hotel for all other travelers to see. It paints a really good picture of our best features in different points of view. Thank you so very much for all that we needed you to point out. Our location is not exactly the best but it is ideal and we can work around some negative impressions like the noise of the freeway on one side of our building facade. There are some trade offs on being central and close to where you need to be when doing business in Fremont. Those are great tips especially for travelers who plan to have ample rest and very sensitive to noise. Your review is most appreciated. Thank you and we hope to see you again soon.

I have stayed at this hotel for years due to its convenient location. It had been getting a little tired but they have renovated the rooms and common areas. The beds are extremely comfortable. If you are a light sleeper request a room not facing the interstate, it is loud. The staff is always very helpful and friendly. The wifi speed is acceptable. The breakfast offerings are typical of HIE. Fresh cookies and an evening reception are a nice touch. It seems recently the room rates have elevated to somewhat unreasonable levels. It seems last minute booking will yield a lower rate versus advanced booking. The parking lot can be challenging to find a spot anywhere remotely close to the entrance. The AC unit is the "on or off" style. Subsequently, it's either on or off. You have to weigh comfort versus the noise of the AC fan.

Dear OmahaCincyKid,

Please excuse this delayed response to your great review. We appreciate your comments and observations on our service and amenties that as soon as we read the review we have immediately started working on them. We try our best to be on track and it is sometimes reviews like yours that keep us reminded that we are drifting from standards. Despite double paned windows on the freeway side of our building, we do receive comments like yours from a few other guests and we try our best to note this as a preference on their guest profiles for their return stay. Our airconditioners were switched back from sensored ones to manual due to a majority of our guest requests. Our rates are always in parity with internet and travel agent booking engines. We however live up to the promise to guests who can provide us information of a lower price selling on the internet. If you come across a similar situation in your next stay with us, please do not hesitate to give us a call. Any Manager on Duty will be able to assist you. Once again, thank you for this very informative review. On behalf of the management and staff of the hotel, we look forward to welcome and better your stay in the next time.

Falling asleep on the first night at a hotel is never easy for me due to the varying sounds and smells of the accommodations. Found the Holiday Inn Express both "Clean & Comfy". Slept like a log. I am now considering getting a similar bed at home.
Now, if they would only have hot oatmeal for breakfast....

Dear Richard C,

I believe you are the very first guest who actually asked information on where to purchase a similar bed that you sleep on in our rooms. We are very happy that sleeping well was one of your best experiences here in our hotel, among other services. Thank you for making it known to everyone that we really are a Home away from Home. Now, we will have to work on that hot oatmeal. We look forward to your next arrival. Take care and all the best!

Breakfast was more than we were expecting. A very big selection. Attendant was always there ahead of your needs. The bar tender very very friendly. Second night he knew what you already was drinking as you entered the room. He brought your drink to you. The food was always good in the evenings. Anthony Ferrer , and Ranil Bhukhav very helpful and friendly. Always smiling and asking if they could help in any way. Hope to return to this hotel again soon. Will tell everyone about the high standard they have set for this hotel. The room was more then we expected. The wall made it look like two rooms and a lot of space for us. Everyone made you feel at home.

Room Tip: Second floor facing the pool.

It all started out good enough. The room looked nice, clean and modern. Had all the plugs and ports you could need. Good wifi, nice bathroom, microwave, fridge. I even liked the wall separating the beds, gave the illusion of two rooms. Then it started: The vacuuming job wasn't as great as I first thought, no heat lamp in the bath. Then it got way worse: I was awakened by loud talking and drag racing sounds. Turned out our room was next to a long stretch of road that was the perfect place for Saturday night fast and loud driving. The bed that I thought was nice, not so much the next morning, bad backache. The breakfast was typical and okay. The best thing about the hotel was the people that worked there.

This hotel is a very nice hotel. It looks very beautiful on the outside with the lights beaming at night. The customer service is excellent, management is very friendly always smiling and saying hello. I love coming back to the room and its all clean and neat. Rooms are spacious with a king sized bed and a flatscreen tv. The happy hour food and drink does not have alot of variety but the selection they have is delicious otherwise. There's a pool and a hot tub to relax in after a long day. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a quick place to stay and enjoy a vacation.

Dear Andrew D,

It is very rare for us to see a review from a guest who have noticed our blue beaming up lights on the exterior of the hotel's building. It is very nice to know that you has noticed and wrote about that because that is a trademark of a Holiday Inn Express. Thank you very much for this great review. It is good to know that guests like you can identify little things such as a short hello greeting that can mean a lot to make a travelling guest's stay worth being where he is--home!
