Holiday Inn Express is my favorite hotel chain for last minute stays--it is the most consistent and reliable I have found--and it is always clean.
Air conditioning always works well.
The windows always open wide.
It is like going to a McDonalds--you always know what it is going to be like--Internet is easy to use--often they don't even require a password.
So, i arrived at this one late coming in from Mexico--made the reservation while i was at In-N-Out nearby--
When i entered the room i was assaulted by a truly foul odor--it smelled as if someone chain smoked in the room for about 3 days and then the hotel staff went in with some kind of industrial smell remover and somehow the chemicals spilled out and mixed together to really make a horrible scent--I am exaggerating, but it was a huge bummer--and the hotel staff refused to give me a room change...they said they had no other rooms in my class of service--
