Great location and the set up of the hotel was very nice. Pool location was really good and easy access. The breakfast buffet had a good variety and was well stocked. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Had a bit of a "staycation", spent two nights here. We had booked over a month in advance and specifically requested a corner room as we had gotten the first time we stayed here, and upon arrival we were given one of the regular hallway rooms that they had left and said that the corner rooms were full. I guess...

If I could rate a "0" I would. Horrible staff. Asked for change and the front desk female told me they don't give change to guests. That was odd considering i travel for business. Lack of communication between workers. Night auditor told me they don't accommodate late checkouts regardless of IHG status because the hotel is constantly full. I understand...

This hotel is as clean as they can make it considering what they have to work with; which is not good. We had reservations for 3 nights but cancelled and just stayed one night because the hotel is so run down. The staff however is amazingly good. Breakfast staff was so helpful and thoughtful but it just cannot compensate for...

~15 min bus ride to Disneyland in the morning from right in front of the hotel - $5 for an all day bus ticket that can be purchased at the front desk. Bus runs hourly and picks up at the half hour from the hotel (7:30 am bus got us to the front of the castle before 8 am). Longer...

Getting early to a property is always sketchy...in that housekeeping hasn't had time to get all the rooms ready (including the one you wanted). But when we arrived to the Holiday Inn Express Garden Grove - we were met with a great smile from a wonderful front desk manager - Alexa Vanegas. We were exhausted because we didn't get a...

This holiday Inn is just ok. Plenty of parking though!! Check in was quick and they have luggage carts. They really need an automatic front door so it's easier to bring your stuff in. My room was on the small side but alright. Wish it had a mini fridge because the only ice machine is on the 2nd floor. Kinda...

Stayed here in early February with my boyfriend. We liked the hotel overall, it had complimentary parking and breakfast. Also, it was very close to the wedding reception that we attended that weekend. The lady at the breakfast room was very nice, she gave me a tray to take to my room to eat breakfast there. The personnel at the...

My son had a tour of Vans headquarters so we chose this holiday inn express. We weren't disappointed. Smooth check in. Platinum members had reserved parking. Went to restaurant suggested by front desk - it was awesome. Breakfast was awesome -- they had ham!!! Very clean and smooth checkout. Disney very close but we didn't plan a visit there.
