I would like to acknowledge Melinda at the front desk. Melinda was very helpful. She answered every question I had about the hotel and then some. Melinda was an absolute delight to talk to.

My husband and I needed to make emergency hotel reservations to be with a very ill friend and, also to attend a funeral.
We were impressed with the service at the front desk. The woman who checked us in was friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast in the morning was a great addition and the selection of food was good. Also, the free parking was a plus because we have found parking charges to be costly.. The hotel is old but clean with good accommodations.

We have stayed at this location twice now for weeks! The Staff and Management are amazing! They have made our children feel like they are at home. They give them treats to bring to the room and to take on our flights. Everytime we stay there, they remember us and our daughter has surgeries each time. They always ask how she is feeling. The second time we stayed there, we had a tire blow out and two of the staff members. Mirella and Melinda, helped us out via our cell phone. They called a tow truck for us and even tried helping us find a rental place that was near to where the tire blew. Awesome service is all we have to say. We are staying there for the rest of our daughters surgeries this year and any trips we make that way. We will always stay there. They are close to many restaurants, shopping and markets. We are going back in July and have recommended this hotel to other surgery patients. Thanks to all the wonderful staff for their hospitality.

We have stayed at the Holiday Express at least one or two times a year since it was built. It is clean and very comfortable. It is easy to get to from the airport.

My son and I were booked here for business reasons. I couldn't have asked for more. It is very clean, centrally located; the beds are comfortable, the complimentary breakfast, delicious! The staff is friendly and hospitable. Forty-five minutes from San Francisco.
Highly recommend.

My husband and I chose the Holiday Inn at 1836 El Camino because it was the nearest to where our son lives. But we would chose it again for the friendly and professional staff. The hotel is neat and very clean and appears to have been renovated recently. The breakfast room is immaculately maintained. Parking and the lobby are on street level and the rest of the hotel is on the second and third floors, so street noise was not a problem. Highly recommended.
P.S. Unlike another review, there are indeed indoor corridors. That review must be for some other hotel.

The hotel is located on a busy street in a neighborhood which is starting to revitalize but not there yet. I did not want to venture too far other than to Harrys Hofbrau across the street. The hotel lobby was very small. The rooms did not have the best view but they were average size and clean. it is a good place to stay for those touring the Bay Area.It is convenient to both 280 and 101. At night it was quiet. I stayed there for 4 days but probably would chose another location in a little bit better neighborhood the next time.
