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...

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...

We stayed at this hotel for 7 nights. We chose it to avoid paying San Francisco higher rates, and to be in a less crowded, touristy location. The room was good, and very spacious. The staff was great, and the pool area was very well kept. Its location is ideal to explore San Francisco, as it is very close to...

Since retiring I don't travel as much as I used to for business. I still have a business in Oakland that requires personal attention one day a week, which is what brought me to need a hotel for one night.

Everything is on the high end for Holiday Inn Express properties including the price. The staff was very good. I was shocked that they discontinued the Newspaper. When you are paying over $200/night this is petty. Hopefully, going forward they will reconsider

The hotel was nice and clean, very comfortable. The staff was always polite and accommodating with a nice complimentary breakfast. Free indoor parking. Quiet place and larger than it looks from the front. Nice bar/restaurant right across the street.
