This was my second stay at this location. My sister and I stayed for just a few days. We felt very safe at this hotel. The breakfast attendants, Epi and Gilbert (?) were very welcoming and engaging. They took very good care of their restaurant and hotel guest. The rooms were a bit dated. The bathroom could use an update....

We stayed here for Spring Break, and loved it. Front desk staff was very helpful and room was clean. Our kids loved the pool, and Mom and Dad loved the underground parking. The location was perfect for us, with the various attractions we had planned in San Francisco and Nappa. Immediate area around the hotel was good as well, with...

This hotel, offers easy access to both freeways and cities...i do business out of San Francisco every 8-10 weeks and this is one of the top places I stay at, easy parking, amazing staff, great breakfast and next door to 24 hour fitness sport club. Food and shopping 5 min away. I highly recommend here, great pool and hottub.

My brother, sister & myself shared a king suite, loved the morning's delicious breakfasts & sitting poolside. (During the rare early seasonal sunshine in the Bay Area!) The hotel is accessible to I-680--easy to head north, south, east and west wherever you'd like to go. Only a 25 minute drive over Bay Bridge into The City, and 25 minutes to...

Fun bar across the street! Nice breakfast on property. Wish it were closer to "downtown W.C." - but a good night's sleep on a VERY comfortable bed made it worth the extra mile or so! Pet friendly was a PLUS!

Spent 2 nights here over the Easter weekend. Clean, comfortable, great breakfast, but was quite far away from the attractions we were booked in to see. Also, it is right across the road from a sports bar, and the "thump, thump, thump" of the loud music was irritating, to say the least. Ear plugs drowned out the noise and was...

Anytime my wife and I come here, we are greeted by Gio. He is always nice and engaging. My wife gets great discounts at holiday inn so we come here every once and a while to break away from the everyday facets of life. The hotel itself is older but not bad. Some rooms that we have been in we're...

A very pleasant stay. The property satisfies the standards of the brands well. The location is clean and well maintained, the staff is extremely friendly, and the rooms are all clean as well as smell fresh. There is no sundry shop for essentials, or any amenities that will blow you away, but expect a comfortable stay in a very nice...

My husband and I haven't stayed at a Holiday Inn Express and were pleasantly surprised by this property. The room was spacious, although the hallway carpet was kind of worn. The breakfast was exceptional for this level of hotel with a couple of omelette choices and a couple of sausage options in addition to a nice array of fruit and...
