“Hotel was great, staff needs work!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

Just a one night stay but the hotel was clean, quiet and very reasonably priced! A small kitchenette in the room gave us more then we needed to be very comfortable. Both the check-in and the check-out staff could use a few courses in customer service. If you don't like your job, please get a new one so I'm not involved in your poor career choice!

Nice big clean rooms with kitchenette, friendly check in staff. We arrived late and left early - this hotel is just off the highway and suited our need for an easy stopover between San Francisco and LA.

I enjoyed my stay here very much. I had a nice, large room on the second floor. Most comfortable bed I've had at a Holiday Inn. Very nice kitchenette and excellent shower. There were some incredibly loud guests around my room, but after turning on the very nice air conditioning unit, their noise was totally blocked out. WiFi could have been faster. Quality of bed made up for absolutely everything, though.

Stayed here for just one night on our way back to LA. Our large room equipped with small kitchen was fantastic, the bed was comfy and the reception staff were friendly and efficient. I took advantage of the guest laundry which was clean and cheap (just $1.25 per wash). Not really close to the town centre but only a 5 minute drive away. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel not facing the freeway are most likely quieter.

One towel in the bathroom for two ppl. Asked for more but never got them. Very old furniture and kitchen set up. Rough linens. TV very fuzzy on all channels. BUT...Clean, great front desk staff. Safely located. Close to the park and Boomers.

Dear Vespagal27,

Thank you for writing a review about your recent stay with us. We work very hard to ensure our facilities and service are superior and we strive to be the best Holiday Inn around. We appreciate your nice comment regarding cleanliness and our front desk.

However, It sounds like we fell below your expectations especially on the date furniture and the limited bathroom towels. We will look into this. We take all reviews positive and negative very seriously, and your feedback will help us improve for our next guest or your next visit.

Sincerely,

Orlando A.
Case Manager

Nice hotel just off the 101, so its easy to get to. Rooms are spacious and all have kitchenettes in them. Pool is nice and big. NIce thing was we left our pillow and they mailed it to us. Rooms that overlook the pool during busy season can be a bit noisy. If your looking for a good steak house, Jockos is just up 101N. See my review regarding this steak house.

Room Tip: Away from pool for less noIse.
