Reviewed April 16, 2013

We recently spent 2 nights at this hotel which is very near our son and his family. It was very clean and had a great breakfast. Only downside was ice machine was broke and lights on the balcony at night which shine in the window but despite that wee will surely stay here again. Restaurants and shopping are close by and not far to Stanford and Stanford Mall.

Room Tip: Away from the street as it is a little busy.

I never thought I would say that a hotel was a "bargain" at $200 a night, but considering the location (Redwood City near Palo Alto), I guess this hotel fits the bill - at least when compared to the $500 "business" rate at the Four Seasons where my business meeting was.

So short and sweet is is the pros and cons of this place:

PROS
- Good for business travelers - free WiFi, simple breakfast, newspaper - a lot like Hampton Inn; makes me cringe that the Four Seasons charges $15 for WiFi on TOP of $500 a night
- Nice clean room, desk space, plugs, lighting, flat screen TV, towels not paper thin; full set of toiletries (shampoo, soap, etc.)
- Room had a little "welcome" packet with water, popcorn for microwave, candy and granola bar; probably a personal touch from the franchise owner and not a standard a HIE
- A short distance from Palo Alto (for anyone visiting Stanford or nearby business), generally for less money
- only 30 minutes from SFO during non rush-hour peak

CONS
- Walls a THINNER than paper thin - room next door had a snorer and it sounded like he was in the room
- Motel style exterior entrance to rooms vs. central hallway - tends to make street noise and hallway noise more apparent
- Not much in the way of dining in short walking distance; there is another HIE closer in to Redwood City central with food and grocery within walking distance; though it did not look as nice as this HIE
- For $200, though it may be relatively cheap for the area, I'm expecting an environment closer to Marriott Courtyard or Hyatt Place vs. Hampton Inn; cheaper but still not a great value

Bottom line, would I stay here again? Probably if I had to but might consider one closer into Redwood City or Palo Alto vs. in between.

About 5 mins drive away from 101 in a nice quiet location (even though it's along El Camino Real) with many dining places around. Room is clean and spacious. Bed is very comfortable. 10 mins to Stanford Shopping Centre, 2-3 mins away from other malls.

They used to have a recreation room with a large jacuzzi and steam room but it has been unavailable for a while, a long while it seems. I hope they bring it back soon.

We stayed here and found the staff to be very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were clean and well appointed. And the complimentary water bottle and treat bag accentuated the friendly atmosphere. The breakfast buffet included eggs and fresh, hot pancakes. I would definitely recommend this Inn.

I was expecting the usual "bland" experience that I have had in the past with "chain" lodges. I am happy to report that is was pleasant surprise!
The staff was very friendly and accommodating not the usual "indifferent" service. The rooms were VERY clean, which is usually an area of concern for me. The room was large with a sofa, and a working desk for my computer. Nice appointments and good linens and fabrics, not the usual "cheap" furnishings. The lighting was great, not the usual florescent overheads. It was quiet and I spelt great. There were nice amenities in the room, and the complimentary breakfast was very nice. Plenty of different options for all tastes, and awesome cinnamon rolls!
This was very good value for the price! I will definately stay here again!

Room Tip: The upstairs rooms at the back are quieter.

This has been the best inn I have stayed in so far. There was great service and complimentary items in the room. It was very clean and the room was fantastic. The breakfast was also great with a pancake making machine and cinnamon rolls. I would recommend this place to anyone.

The staff at this Holiday Inn Express is so helpful and friendly and Ron is the best!! I have stayed here several times in the last few months and it is definitely closest to Stanford, Lucille Packard, Palo Alto, Stanford Shopping Center and Menlo Park. The other HIE's don't look so far apart as they go north along El Camino Real but the traffic is really challenging and the time estimates on my GPS are underrated so this place's location is a real time saver. Plus it's super-clean, with lots of quiet rooms and every one of the staff goes out of their way to help however they can.

Room Tip: Seems like the rooms are all quiet, surprisingly so because it's on a busy thoroughfare.
