I stayed here for a week and have got no complaints. I was pleasantly surprised by the staffs eagerness to help and when I decided to eat on the premise, the room-service was prompt, friendly, and the food was great too! Rema, the sales coordinator, was a life-saver when I went out to my rental car and my battery was dead-- she provided me with her own jumper cables, and helped me for 45 minutes to get my car going! Cant express how much I enjoyed my stay, it was great and everyone was very accommodating to my requests. The hotel was tidy and clean and I highly recommend the sauna!

In previous reviews, there was expressed concern about the shuttle service of this hotel (apparently they had used a cab for this service). This week, I used the van from this hotel 2x each day to go to SFO to catch the BART into and out of the city. Thus, I could be close to the airport, save money for my organization, and still not need a car and get into the city daily. The staff at the hotel and operating the van were very supportive and warm. While the hotel is somewhat isolated, this service makes it very accessible. Also, one morning I had breakfast at the hotel and the food and the service staff were both very good.

Everything was excellent. Friendly staff, hygienic, spacious rooms, delicious food in the restaurants and beautiful bathrooms. In a near flawless experience one thing stood out - the excellent service provided by all the staff in providing information, creature comforts and advice. Only one fault: the whirlpool, disappointingly grotty.

Stayed here one night as our party of 10 gathered. We were all adults and had 4 rooms. Rooms are great with very nice beds, linens and furniture. Had a frig and coffee maker. Large bathroom. Gave us 10% off coupons for onsite restaurant. Some in our party ate dinner and all ate breakfast which was very good. Airport shuttle available which we used. Have your reservation sheet in hand. More than one Holiday Inn in area and the driver wants to make sure you are on the correct shuttle. Very friendly front desk staff.

What a great and pleasant surprise it was to stay at this hotel. I chose it as a park and fly out of SFO and checked in on the 8th of October. The front staff was beyond excellent. They were polite, helpful and made this a wonderful stay. The facility was spotless and the grounds were well kept. I havent always had good luck with Holiday Inns in the past but this hotel was a shining example of what Holiday Inn was in its prime. Great job to all. I highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed here on business trip during September. It was reasonably priced, big Clean room. The location worked out perfect. The front desk was very helpful with directions and restaurant recommendations.

Room Tip: Ask to be away from the highway side.
