We are a family traveling with 2 young children - 4 and 6. My requirements are usually fulfilled by Holiday Inn Express - a reasonably priced ($70 - $100 IMHO) clean room with two queen beds, morning breakfast, and an indoor pool (depending on the season an outdoor is acceptable). In addition to my basic requirements, this Holiday Inn had a suite layout with a sofa and coffee table including a kitchenette with a small refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, and a sink. It is located close to the freeway (noise was not an issue) and about 15 minutes away from old town, the aquarium, zoo, and museums. The small negatives - the bathroom space was tight - you had to open the door squeeze in (hitting the toilet paper holder) to be able to close the door. Lastly, they neglected to refresh the pool towels for an early morning swim (luckily I had brought my own). There was no view from our room except of the gas station next door but we did use it for its convenience store. There is a Carl's Junior next to the gas station and tons of upper scale chain restaurants within a 5 minute drive. Overall I give this Hotel/Motel an above average rating due to the fair price and convenient accommodations.
