Stayed here as well as the Marriott (Spring Hill Suites) in Madera. Both have their pluses and minuses.
The hotel itself is very nice. Clean. Modern. Good shampoos, Very good shower. Good AC. Just your basic Holiday Inn Express. I booked it on Hotwire for $77 for a night. I would stay here again.
Pluses are: it is very quiet (MUCH more quiet than the Marriott), it is in a great part of town (walkable to home depot, lowes, office depot, marshalls, tj maxx, walmart, gamestop, taco bell, quiznos, everything...), easy entrance to the highway, gas station across the street.
Minuses are: the beds are not as good as the Marriott's, the rooms, and hotel as a whole, feel a bit darker and less comfortable than the Marriott's (the Marriott is like something you would expect to find in a San Francisco boutique hotel or so), the pool is pretty eh (then again the pool at the Marriott is no better), no complementary coffee all day (Marriott has this)
This review (and my review of the Marriott) was intended to provide a good comparison of two 3* hotels in Madera, should you be searching for hotels in the immediate area and see these two show up in a list. If I came back to Madera again, I would choose the Holiday Inn, just because of the location.
