I stop over at this hotel enroute between Palm Desert from San Jose area. Staff efficient and accommodating. Prices reasonable. Restaurant on site. Food good and reasonable. Rooms large with kitchenette facilities, including a refrigerator larger than found in most hotels. One of my favorites!

Really impressed with this hotel for the price we paid compared to others up the highway 1. The hotel was clean, plenty of parking, the room was massive and modern, bed was comfortable. Only thing I would say is avoid the breakfast in the hotel, for the price of it, you can get a much better breakfast down the road...

We are a family of 5.. three kids.. Upon check in I was asked if we wanted to include breakfast with our stay. I was super happy to hear that they offered breakfast because we had been to many hotels that didnt offer it on our vacation. I assumed it was a buffet like most hotels (that was my mistake)....

Stayed in a decent size room that was cleaner than some of the other places we've stayed whilst travelling around the west coast of the US. Pool was fine. Decent size room with a balcony. Quite enjoyed the stay. Nice staff. Happy overall.

Check in was fast, efficient and friendly. We stayed in a two room suite which was clean and well-appointed, with fairly modern decor. There were, however, some details that must have been overlooked in the remodel....such as the yellowed grungy plastic of some of the outlet/utility covers, especially the hairdryer unit. The bathtub must have been resurfaced at some point...

I think this may be the first time I've ever stayed in a Holiday Inn. We were here for a baseball tournament with a number of baseball teams and families. Overall, I have no major complaints about this hotel and I would definitely stay here again. Easy access off Hwy 101 made this a very convenient hotel for us. I...
