Reviewed July 21, 2009

Stayed here while visiting Yosemite National Park, and attending some business in San Francisco, so, Modesto was right in the middle. I drove from Portland, Oregon the night before, and I had a really bad experience at the motel 6 in weed (see my reviews, under "GROSS - ANOTHER ONE"). I was suppossed to stay there overnight, instead of driving through the night as I usually do. With the years, thats getting harder and harder to do...hehehe. Left weed early the next morning, and arrived in the Modesto area around 1PM, and was very tired from driving and poor sleeping at motel 6 the night before. I contacted the hotel to see if the would allow an early check in, and they said it would be no problem, as they had already prepared our room, and even placed a crib in there for our daughter (from the online reservation form). The person I spoke to was very nice. Her name is Sarah. Upon arrival I was surprised at how nice the hotel is. It is a newer constrcution, and very nicely decorated (Modern Decor). The reception person (and everyone else we dealt with directly, which was about 6 different employees) had a $30 per hour job attitude. I mean, these people really appreciated their jobs, and it showed. From the reception person, to the people that staffed the breakfast room in the morning. Our room was absolutely incredible. It felt like a $200 a night room. Very spacious, and beautifully appointed, with every convenience you can expect (LCD TV, Safe, Fridge, Microwave, Nice Furniture). Everything was spot-less. The bed was very comfortable. The bathrrom, was WAY above average. It was about the same level as some really expensive private properties I have rented before. Our room overlooked the pool, and yes there is a SMALL amount of freeway noise, but the sound insulation is very good (as good as it gets), and, hey! you wanted your hotel convenientely close to the freeway....didnt you?? lol - a small price to pay for this feature. I honestly, forgot this noise after about 2 minutes. The fitness room is top notch, with better equipment than 24hr fitness, the pool is very nice, but not huge. The breakfast is very good. Real hot breakfast food, bagels, muffins, coffee/tea, 4 diff kinds of fruit juice, cereal, yogurt, etc. All foods are very good quality (for example, yogurt is yoplait instead of kirkland, lol).
My overall experience was way above average. Definitely recommended.

This hotel is relatively new, and is serving the reinforce my appreciation of how Holiday Inn has reinvigorated themselves and are setting the standard for reasonably priced travel accommodations. The property was meticulously maintained, the room was large, clean and incredibly well appointed - fridge, electrical outlets, wifi, lots of reading lamps, towels and soaps. The only minor flaw was that the mini-safe wasn't plugged in, and therefore unusable. The staff was very attentive, finding us a bottle opener when asked for. The breakfast, while typical Holiday Inn fare, was well stocked and the breakfast room exceptionally clean.

The level of consistency among the HI brand is really quite remarkable, but this particular property seems to be making that little bit of extra effort.

The only negative about the place is that since it is next to the freeway, there is quite a bit of traffic noise that penetrates into the room.

cal_traveler2,

Thank you for writing a review on our property. I am pleased to hear the great experience you had at our hotel despite the fact that your safe was not working. We have actually recently replaced all the batteries in each safe in all the rooms, so I assure you that the problem has been fixed.

I am also glad to hear that you appreciate the relaunch that Holiday Inn is doing to please its loyal guests. As a franchisee, I appreciate the fact that guests are noticing these changes.

The next time you are in the Modesto Area, we hope that you will make a reservation with us. Thank you for your kind review!

We have stayed here several times visiting our son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren. We really like the rooms, especially the high-quality bathroom. The staff, especially Brian, have been thoughtful and attentive at all times. The self-service breakfast is a useful service, I have had no problems accessing the internet. . It is close to the freeway, which is convenient, but can be noisy - ask for a room on the other side

In April while attending a debate tournament, we stayed in a two room suite. Great, comfortable beds, well appointed, quiet with minimal freeway sound, great staff. The room has a King bed, a couch, and a desk in the main area and then a queen bed in a separate attached bedroom so it was great for a couple with an older teen son. The business features were great too for our needs. A good value, but I would like to see a better AAA rate for this suite. The area is nondescript, but near freeway without being adjacent to a noisy offramp. Shopping and dining are conveniently located nearby. Breakfast is served daily and is ample, also early enough for those who need to get places. Coffee/tea service is available through the day and evening.

We have stayed at other Holiday Express hotels and this is one of the best. Excellent front desk service, diverse breakfast selections, and a large and pleasant common room. Very clean rooms, comfortable beds, good showers and stylish bathroom fixtures. Rates higher than most hotels/motels but the value is there. Staff is genuinely outgoing and accomodating. We always come back here when on family business in Modesto.
