Right in the middle of the Vietnamese neighborhood if that's where you want to be and also close to freeways. Rather small rooms, but it has a gym, vending machines, even some meeting room for business and is next to some construction material place. Beds are good but soundproofing can be better. Breakfast place looks nice enough but is tiny...

Drove through terrible neighborhoods with a large population of homeless to get to this hotel. Would not have stayed if I was traveling alone. Business colleagues escorted me to my room. I put my luggage against the door, just in case. Doors face outside. No interior hallway. Service at front desk was fantastic. Nice gift pack in room. Would not...

This is a dated motel with doors that open to the outside. The good news is that it looks that an update Holiday Inn Express will be built on that site with inside doors. Food was a mixed bag. The standard fare was surprisingly not good either day. The nighttime snacks of trail mix, cold cans of pop and water...

Stayed here on a Thursday night. Clean room, beautiful flowers in the parking lot, pleasant and helpful staff, large breakfast buffet, all the details... like ear plugs by the bedside. They had our key ready and waiting when we walked in the door. When we needed more time because of a delayed business meeting, they offered a 2:00 check out....

I am an IHG Spire member, Holiday Inn’s loyalty program highest level, meaning I stay in Holiday Inns/Express’s 75+ nights a year. This particular one is not like any other I’ve stayed at. First off, it wasn’t built as a Holiday inn. It’s a converted “Motor Inn” style arrangement. Two floors, all doors open to outside parking lot. Keep in...

It always feels a little cheap to me to have my room door open to an outdoor walkway. I prefer hotels with indoor room access only - quieter, safer, more modern feeling. This is the old-fashioned motel style door that opens to outside kind of place. That's why I didn't rate it higher. Nice bed, clean room, safe, microwave and...

We needed to book a place very quickly when a nearby hotel lost our reservation! We felt in the end that we ended up at the better hotel! We were traveling with two young boys and there was a perfect little pool for them along with breakfast int he morning and snacks in the afternoon. Wonderful, friendly staff.

The thing about a Holiday Inn Express is that you pretty much know what you're getting before you see it. This hotel is fine. The staff was exceptionally pleasant. The rooms were comfortable and very clean. No luxury soaps or plush towels, but a reasonable price. The breakfast was actually on the higher end of standard free breakfast buffets. The...

We ended up here after having stayed at the Extended Stay America down the way which was filthy. From the outside some may pass this up because it may not look promising but don't.
