We pulled in late at night after getting lost and being 100 miles out of the way. The clerk at the desk was great, accommodating and put me at ease. In the morning, breakfast was great. My other half had problems with his glasses and frank, the maintenance man lent geoff his mini-tools and we were able to rescrew in...

Surprisingly poor maintenance. Towel bar fell off the wall, towel rack rusty, floor mat had a hole in it, caulking and grout in poor shape. Lamp shade worn out. Breakfast was good. Not up to Holiday Inn Express standards. Most we have stayed at are quite good. Not this one.

Stayed for 3 nights. Should have moved to another hotel, but didn't want the hassle of repacking. The staff was very good, but usually had only one person working. The room was extremely dirty. Our socks turned black from just walking through the room. There was an old coke can in one of the drawers. The chair and ottoman were...

Had the opportunity to stay at this HI Express for one night. Check in was fast, friendly and efficient. My room was somewhat tired looking which I thought was unusual in a fairly new hotel. Breakfast was the usual HI Express excellent. Rate was $99 after AAA discount which I consider to be good. Not quite up to my other...

We stayed one night here. The room next to us had a dog which they left unattended, likely while they went for dinner. The dog barked continuously, obviously upset at being left alone. We were going to relax before dinner but the constant barking disallowed that. How mean to bring the poor animal and subject it to such a stressful...

Was here for three nights, wasn't a bad experience, but nothing great either. The hotel staff was friendly. The breakfast was more than reasonable and filled us up each morning.

I can't say enough how much I appreciate the free breakfast that is offered at the Holiday Inn Express locations. My husband and I stayed at this hotel during June when I wanted to visit the Venice Pier beach to hunt for sharks' teeth. It is just a few minutes' drive from the pier (and I did find sharks' teeth!)....
