We chose this hotel for a family gathering nearby. The manager and the housekeeping staff went out of their way to accommodate our group. Yes the facilities and the breakfast are very good, but their attention to guests is outstanding. I highly recommend this hotel. K.D. Patel and Shanden are hospitality superstars.

It was a 7 1/2 hour drive up, I had errands to run in town as Castro Valley was our home for 3 years until 3 months ago. Came for both work & to see friends. At 7PM we decided to call it a night & start settling in, I noticed my daughter who had bathed & been put in clean PJ's had blackened feet on her full body onesie from the floor which was damp in a corner of the room & had not been cleaned. Tired, I let this go & changed her clothes. Pulled the sheets back to lay down & found crumbs & multiple hairs from a prior guests along with smeared eyeliner & mascara on the sheets, they had not been changed. On either bed. I went down to advise & was told housekeeping had left for the day so I was handed sheets & pillowcases to put on myself after a nearly 8 hour drive to get there. The next morning I requested to speak to the manager & was told that they didn't have time to speak to me, but had been advised of the sheet issue & that they would credit HALF the night & asked if I would like to change rooms. I had to get to my office in Livermore but could move in the afternoon but they said it had to be NOW. So we moved rooms. Next room was cleaner, but I was then 20 minutes late to work. Lastly, as I was moving items to the new room on a different floor, the manager who had been "too busy" to speak to me, came from the stairwell, saw me & literally ran back out the door to avoid confrontation. I cannot make this up. Had I not been late to work I would have changed hotels completely

Response from IHGService, Guest Relations Manager at Holiday Inn Express Castro Valley - East Bay
Responded 19 Jan 2020
Hi Melanie K, I'm glad you choose our hotel for your visit to Castro Valley. Thank you for staying. We believe travel should have more to offer, everything needed for a great stay within arms’ reach. I'm sorry for the letdown. Cleanliness has always been our priority but I read you find our carpets, sheets, and pillowcases needed better attention. I also read your thoughts about our manager's service. I hear your dismay so I notified our management about this for us to take necessary actions to better serve you in the future. We appreciate you leaving feedback about your experience, and I hope to see you soon. Many Thanks, Rein D Case Manager IHGService

A nice stay hotel, I lived for two times, and price is also reasonable and transportation is very convenient, and also supply substantial breakfast. Not noisy and quiet, I like soft pillow and mattress which make me have a good sleep. The beddings are meet 5 star standards, and if you only for overnight pass by, it's really good choice.

Needed a place near the airport for a brutally early return flight home. This place is good for that. About fifteen minutes drive from the airport. The area is a bit rough. Saw plenty of cops out. Be mindful of your safety after dark. Room itself was your typical design. No glaring issues but cleanliness seemed a bit rushed — found a few dust bunnies at edges of lamps. Stains on toilet on arrival too.

Large comfortable room, no traffic noise which is always a bonus. TV had numerous channels including many showing movies. Ideal for a short stay. Only downside was the difficulty in logging on to WiFi. Keep getting a not possible to connect message. Also the quality of breakfast items was rather poor.
