Pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Loved the pool and lounge areas. The bartender was a bit snooty, but her beer tastes as good as any. Will stay again. Here are some extra words to fill the 200 character minimum... that's stupid.

Overall the hotel is great but I must admit I barely slept all week because of noise, mostly outside of the hotel. I must also ask what the deal is with the water in the shower. It is extremely hard to turn on and then all week once I got the temp where I wanted it, the temperature would swing wildly from extremely hot to ice cold.

My wife and I stayed in this hotel from Feb. 27 to Mar. 11, 2014. It was a very pleasant experience for us. The staff were friendly and quick to respond to questions and requests. Maid service was excellent and very accommodating to our "night owl" schedules. In Modesto, this hotel really stands out as a true hotel. Every other place is a motel or version thereof. The restaurant had a diverse and appealing menu although we did not dine there. The breakfast buffet, which we had nearly every day, was just splendid with lots of fresh fruit to go with the eggs, sausage, bacon, etc.

Our room was spacious and the thermostat worked very well for us. My wife likes her room temperature cool and we kept the thermostat down around 62. The AC responded very well. The room was well equipped with a nice easy chair and a desk with chair plus plenty of room to put our suitcases out of the way. The carpeting, while clean, was pretty stained and probably about due for replacement. For this reason, I have rated this hotel four stars instead of five.

The one issue that arose for us concerned the wait staff for breakfast. We were at the hotel under a local business' auspices so the breakfast buffet was included in the price of our room. On several occasions, the wait staff offered to prepare an omelet or fry our eggs in lieu of the buffet's scrambled eggs. But the one time when I decided it would be nice to try an omelet, the young man waiting on me on that occasion responded that my "ticket" was for the buffet only. This was technically correct but embarrassing to me since other wait staff had offered to substitute the eggs if I wished.

If we return to Modesto, we will certainly plan to stay at the Doubletree. It is the only true hotel in the city and a very nice place to stay.

Room Tip: A little quieter high up. The back side is exposed to a train whistle while the front side of the h...

This very large hotel appears out of place in Modesto but once you stay there is is a wonderful experience. The staff is very welcoming and the rooms are large and immaculate. Web stay there to attend concerts and plays at the Gallo Center which is walking distance away. Modesto is a very safe and welcoming city with quite a few great restaurants also walking distance from the hotel

Room Tip: Ask for the top floors to avoid noise except for the train which passes by but you adjust to it.
