About to stay our 3rd time. Cleanliness is up to my allergy standards. Newest in town. Great service. Best reservations, Nicole had us on file and gave us our past rate as returnees. And will give us the quiet rooms we request. Last time we had a wing all to ourselves. Do call them. I have not been sorry.
Location--after a long day's drive, we cool off floating in inner tubes at Knight's Ferry, dine at the Vietnamese a find in the shopping center, sleep soundly here, then after breakfast, feed the animals at the cheese store just north of town, and pick up take out from the real Mexican drive-in to picnic by the river. Fun for our 6 to 8-year-olds on the way to the Sierras.

On par with other HIE location we've stayed at with the added experience of all staff being welcoming and friendly. Clean and neat rooms, exercise facility, lobby and breakfast area, and common restroom.

We chose this place because we wanted to stay for a couple of nights and do Yosemite NP one of the days. On our day of arrival, it was time to laundry for the trip.

Good room, clean, everything we needed. Only complaint is the old style A/C units with just the knob controls. Can't run the fan constantly so you get it shutting on and off all night when the A/C cuts in.

Fairly close to Yosemite but still a couple of hours to get there. If I ever do this again I think I would base in Merced.

We had a ground floor room about 6 doors down the laundry so that was great, washer and dryer worked properly so we got everything done that was needed.

Nice property, I would stay here again.

I'm used to getting hotels in the $130-$200 range. This hotel was the top-rated hotel in this town tonight. It went for $111. It is a small town with many hotels, so I thought maybe it was a low price area. Unfortunately, what I found out is that it isn't a low price area; it just doesn't have good hotels, so the results are cheaper lower quality hotels. I can accept that, but I wish I knew, so that I could have taken the 30 minute drive to go to a Hampton Inn. I wanted to go to bed earlier instead, so tried this local hotel instead.

I have never been to Holiday Inn Express, so I cannot comment on how it compares to other Holiday Inn Expresses. But it does not confer the types of comfort that its advertising suggests. I get those types of comfort in better hotels.

This is the first time in years that I had to try more than two rooms. The first had cigarette smoke in it despite being non-smoking, and was stuffy. The second was next to the weight room and had a TV making noise, and was stuffy. And the third room had the main road noise coming into it, and it was annoying, but it was the least bad situation there. The room was stuffy, although slightly less stuffy than the first two.

Since this is my first stay at Holiday Inn Express, my first impressions are pretty poor. I will update this review when I am done for the night. Everything else looks in order. I don't know what the staff could have done to make it better considering the layout of the building. Next time, I'll try to plan ahead for driving back to a more luxuriously appointed area.

I have this feeling that this is the type of place that exists to soak up the many average customers, so that I can stay in the slightly more expensive much nicer places.
