Stayed here for one night and stay was average. The property is old and rooms are manageable. Bathroom/shower was very small. Located close to the airport, finding it initially was not easy. The lifts are not that clean and could be better.

My husband and I spent one night here. We were flying out early the next morning and this hotel is located conveniently near the airport. It is very clean and check-in was quick. Ask for a top floor room. (We had very a noisy group above us.) There is a free shuttle service to the airport that runs 24 hours.... More

We stayed here on both legs of a trip to Hawaii. Although the property is older, the room was quiet, the shuttle was convenient, the breakfast was free and well-stocked, and the staff was helpful and courteous. It was within walking distance of a top-rated taco truck and Houlihans, where we had dinner.

This HIE is one of the most charming locations I've been to (and I used to work in one!) The staff are super friendly, greet you in the hallway, and just make sure you have a great stay. Anytime we needed something, front desk was very knowledgeable and there was even a book with brochures and pamphlets for local attractions.... More

Let's start with what was bad. Upon check out, I was informed I was charged a bottle of water. I told the staff that I had not consumed it and I was very sure as I was the only person staying in the room. She mentioned she will check with house keeping and revert the charges if they found an... More

The hotel and staff were great. Free shuttle from the airport. Staff located my can after I left it on the shuttle. There is a McDonalds and an IHOP nearby. The breakfast in the common area is great with some hot foods. You are still far from from downtown SanFrancisco. It can take 45-90 minutes to get there depending on... More

We stayed here as part of a park/stay/fly deal. The hotel is fine, rooms clean and comfortable. There is a McDonald's next door and a decent sit-down restaurant/bar right across the street in The Best Western. There is also a regular Holiday Inn just up the street that has a restaurant on the premises (we know because we mistakenly stopped... More

Negative star rating. The service here is absolutely horrible and the manager is non-responsive. I can not believe this place is associated with a Holiday Inn. I booked a 9 night stay here thru Hotels.com and paid ahead. 2 nights into my stay, I had a family emergency and had to return home. The ensuing frustration starts. The hotel desk... More

I made reservations for 5 rooms for my crew and I. Unfortunately, my plane broke and we could not make it. I called as soon as I knew, which happened to be 22 hours prior, 2 hours too late.
