We stayed here on our way to Yosemite and couldnt fault the hotel with anything. The room was comfy and well equipped. Staff were really friendly and breakfast was included which had a good selection of fruit, cereal and muffins.

HEC2012,

I am glad to hear that your stay here at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites was a great way to kick off your trip to Yosemite! Our breakfast is the perfect fuel your body needs for fun day of hiking through the park.

And, if you should ever want to get an early start, ToGo bags filled with fruit, yogurt and those delicious muffins are available upon request!

We booked this hotel during our 3.5 week roadtrip of the American SouthWest. We needed a hotel coming out of Yosemite on the way to SF and we chose this one based on tripadvisor ratings.

Pros: very clean and comfortable rooms. The customer service is at a very high level compared to other similar class hotels. The breakfast is quite good too.
Cons: It's next to a freeway so noise may be a problem.

We would definitely recommend this hotel, but only as a convenient stop for passing travelers.

Room Tip: This hotel is next to a freeway- ask for a room as far away from it as possible.

Dear Przemek O,

Thank you for taking time to review our hotel. As you used TripAdvisor to select us during your recent trip, your review will in turn help future travelers! And, I am glad that we lived up to our TripAdvisor reputation of being the #1 hotel in Modesto.

We host a number of guests who are coming back from Yosemite, and have found that our warm and welcoming staff and large rooms are a great way to relax after a long day of adventure and exploring.

And yes, we are close to the freeway, but have not had this be a huge issue with our guests as we were very conscientious when we built our hotel about this fact, and took steps to help alleviate the road noise. But, there are times when get travelers who are more sensitive to noise, and we do our best to accommodate their needs by placing them in rooms that are further from the freeway.

I hope that the rest of your trip through the American Southwest was a good as your stay with us!

Sincerely,
Nikki Hoffman
Regional Director of Sales

I had the best time at this hotel! The rooms were modern and roomy. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was like it is supposed to be. But the manager's reception put me over the top.

Room Tip: No suggestions.

Stayed here a year ago and I complained about the noise from the freeway. Stayed at the opposite end this time and didn't hear any trucks/cars at all. Shawn was who I talked to when making the reservations and he also checked us in. He was a gem and a great asset to this hotel. Very helpful and friendly. Room was nice and beds comfortable. Breakfast room is nice and large and pretty good selection with scrambled eggs, sausage, toast, biscuits, fruit, yogurt, cereal, and plenty of juice, yogurt, etc. I am upgrading my review from last year. It was nicer than I remembered!

Dear phyllisj,

Thank you for returning to our hotel and giving us a second chance! And, thank you for upgrading your review from your previous stay with us. We always like to have the opportunity to redeem ourselves from the rare times we fall below the high standards we have set for our staff, and ourselves. I am glad you got to experience the exceptional service that we are known to provide, and which has made us the number 1 preferred hotel in Modesto.

Sean, who is a recent re-addition to our front desk family, has stepped right back in like he never left! It is nice to hear (and pass along) such praising comments. All of our front desk staff agents are chosen for their compassion and willingness to go above and beyond for our guests.

In designing the breakfast room, we were striving to have a warm and inviting, yet open feel; a place guests can come and relax to enjoy our tremendous breakfast, or unwind after a long day – and seems that we have succeeded!

We look forward to seeing you on your next trip to the Central Valley!

Sincerely,
Nikki Hoffman
Regional Director of Sales

I booked a room here for a friend and myself to spend the night when visiting another friend from Modesto. Our room was a nice size, the beds were comfortable, the TV worked fine, the bathroom was beautiful, and we really enjoyed breakfast. There was a pancake machine, and like little kids, we had to try it. The pancakes weren't great, but it was a fun novelty. I always enjoy the cinnamon rolls at HIE, the juice was good, and the eggs were delicious.
We asked for a room upstairs to avoid noise, and I'm glad we did. Our room overlooked the pool, but we heard no pool noise. We noticed there were 1st floor rooms that were right next to the pool, and I think those would be noisy. The pool and hot tub were great. They even have a lift to help guests with disabilities into the pool and hot tub.
There's a Boomers amusement area right across the street, with an arcade, mini golf, and other fun activities for young people. There are also several casual chain restaurants close by, so if you are looking for a place for a mini-vacation, this hotel is hard to beat.

Room Tip: Ask for an upstairs room, preferably not by the elevator.

Dear dwheatl,

We are so glad you chose our hotel to have your “mini vacation” while you were visiting your friend. We are often complimented on the comfort of our beds and the contemporary design of our rooms, and loved hearing that you agree! Our rooms were custom designed for guest comfort, from the layout of the room, the cushiness of the desk chair to all the furnishings. Not to mention, our bathroom with all of its custom fixtures and special touches added to enhance the guest’s stay, it isn’t any wonder why we are the number 1 preferred hotel in Modesto.

I have to admit, the entire staff share in your child like wonderment with the pancake machine! It is really hard to resist, and we couldn’t wait to try it out when they came out. Overall, the breakfast experience here is a touch above the rest, offering that sweet cinnamon icing on the cake.

Having Boomers! right across the street is definitely a HUGE plus to any family vacation – plus you can always check with the front desk for any specials that might be running (and this isn’t just for younger guests either). The same goes for the local restaurants, and if you are feeling slightly adventurous, our front desk staff is always willing to help you find a local place to experience some of the amazing food Modesto has to offer.

We look forward to seeing you again on your next trip to visit Modesto!

Sincerely,
Nikki Hoffman
Regional Director of Sales

I have stayed at this motel often in the past and always have been pleased with the facility and the service. Conveniently located adjacent to HWY 99. The afternoon reception is a real treat.
The rooms are up to date and attractive. And their hospitality is excellent.
