“Nice hotel for a one night stay on the way to SF”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

After our Yosemite visit we decide to stay one night on the way to SF and booked this hotel. The room is nice but bit small for couple+2. The staff is nice but couldn't help us with the noise air condition unit or changing our room as hotel was full. the breakfast is nice to start the day with and the pancake machine is great.

The city of Oakdale was a little bit boring so if you prefer bigger city you might consider the area of Manteca which look bigger with more restaurants and shopping opportunities.

The hotel is easily accessible from the main road and is a great overnight stop between San Francisco and Yosemite National Park. The front desk staff are polite and helpful. The room was large and well equipped. There was a microwave for those staying longer term. Also appreciated the laundry facilities. Basic breakfast was included; great for those who are on-the-go. Loved the pancake machine :) Great value.

Stayed here the night while traveling from San Fran to Yosemite.

Location: just a two hour drive to Yosemite, which was perfect for us to be able to enjoy almost the whole day there without having to stay the night in the Park.

Staff: staff was great, helped print some materials I needed before our arrival into Yosemite as well as attentively stocked the breakfast bar in the morning. Very friendly and were able to provide food recommendations to folks who were asking.

Rooms: rooms were pretty standard for a HI Express, large and had refrigerators.

As usual, the Holiday Inn Express rooms were large and very clean. The hotel clerk on check-in was professional and very friendly. We checked out the next morning and the hotel clerk (a different one) was professional and friendly; the clerk remembered me from last year's stay. The worst things was that the TV remote didn't work and the breakfast sausage patty tasted like dry cardboard.

Dear Guest,
We appreciate your time and wonderful feedback regarding our staffs friendliness and professionalism. We apologize for the issue regarding the remote to the television. Due to its location inside the breakfast area, many people have access to it and we do have times where wrong buttons are pushed and we have to reset the cable box which is what occurred when you were here. As for the sausage patty, our breakfast host was notified and we apologize for this inconvenience. Despite this, we are glad to know that you found our rooms to be spacious and clean. We hope that you have a lovely day and choose to stay with us again sometime!

Typical Holiday Inn Express a couple of hours from Yosemite. That said, was having difficulty getting boarding pass printed on Memorial Day Monday. Manager noticed my struggles, dropped what he was doing, and got them printed for me. Thank-you sir!!! Great place to stay if you want to drive into Yosemite early in the AM.

Hotel is nice and is on main street in the town. Only decent restaurant is right across the hotel. A sushi place about 2 blocks and a mall in about 1/2 mile. Staff were ok but only one person manages the whole palce so may have to use a phone to reach them first but they come running. Asked to fix Gym equipment and was fixed the same day.

Chose this one on Booking.com based on TripAdvisor reviews. Good quality reasonably new hotel with great breakfast included. Our room was at the back and very quiet. Good restaurants within walking distance.
