This is one of the best hotels, if not the best in Redwood City. Centrally located on El Camino Real. Plenty of restaurants, convenience stores close by. Simple Breakfast is healthy and delicious. Friendly staff.

Reviewed 17 February 2017

We chose this hotel because of the location being close to our son's apartment but we ended up being very pleased with the location for many reasons. It is close to many restaurants as well as the Caltrain so you can get into San Francisco easily without driving. Also, Bevmo is right across the street for people that care about...

We had great reception but a few minutes later a robot, something like the original lost in space showed up to bring water and greet us. Outstanding. Rooms were clean, updated, not spacious but adequate. Breakfast was on the spot very good and efficient. The help there we're so gracious. Parking is super convenient. Internet service was good.

First, let me say that the staff and the manager of the HIE were very nice and accommodating. The hotel is clean and the beds are the most comfortable hotel beds I have ever encountered--excellent mattress and bedding. We will most likely stay here again. I do need to mention the following issue. The first room we were given had...

The other hotels were booked and my travel agency sent me here. What a wonderful place. As you get out of your car, there is faint music purposely playing to welcome you. The front desk people were great. The housekeeping staff wrote a nice note on the nightstand pad and even left a bath towel sculpted into an animal shape....

This property is right on busy El Camino Real but close to lots of restaurants and shopping. It is a typical Hol. Inn Express. The unusual thing about it is that they have a robot that comes to your room to deliver water and goodies (upon request), Our grand daughter loved it!

The location on El Camino Real may not be the best in the area but it is okay. In all other respects this is a great place to stay.
