The staff was friendly and helpful, check in and check out were easy and quick, the water pressure in the shower was GREAT, it was much quieter than I thought it would be, and the curtains block out a LOT of light! It was everything I needed for a quick stay.

The room was huge with a very comfortable bed, a love-seat, wet bar and a bathroom separated from the bedroom by a door. Our pet hotel peeve is having the sink in the bedroom so neither of us can get up early to get dressed without waking the other. Because my husband needs the bedroom very cool at night for sleeping but the thermostat could not be turned lower due to CA regulations, the staff brought an extra fan (did I mention 2 ceiling fans?!) which helped tremendously. There was a full hot breakfast while we were expecting only a continental breakfast. Holiday Express and Suites will be our first choice the next time we book a hotel!

Good experience overall, I would stay here again. Breakfast was O.K. Eggs could have been a bit better and quality of bread improved but decent overall. If they could extend breakfast hours that would also be a plus

Very nice facility, with very friendly/helpful staff.

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet
Cons: slight freeway noise
I have stayed at this location on multiple occasions (business trips to the area) and will consider it exclusively for future stays. Don't change a thing.

Lipstick on a Pig

Beautiful hotel, standard accomodations including breakfast. It was bad having a nice room with a window view/noise of the freeway just outside. Next time ask for a room on the opposite side away from the freeway.
