We have stayed at this Holiday Inn many times and always enjoyed our time here. We have seen many of the same employees on our return visits and the staff is always accommodating and friendly. Monica and Socorro are especially welcoming and professional. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfast is simple but more than adequate, and the pool is a welcome plus in the summer valley heat. We have even brought our little dog here on occasion and he did great! I always take advantage of the mini-gym while I'm here. The bike, treadmill and elliptical are all I need! I was little disappointed this time that I couldn't get anyone to address the television issue in the gym. For some reason the cable signal was out but no one wanted to deal with it. I asked for help on both days I used the gym but got no resolution. Not the end of the world but my silent workout wasn't quite as enjoyable as it might have been! Also, when we returned to our room on Sat. night someone was smoking weed in their room. The entire hallway smelled awful and it eventually seeped into our room. I didn't bother to call the front desk because I was pretty sure nothing would be done. This is the second time in the past year that we have stayed at a hotel where this occurred. This really made me angry as we always stay in "non-smoking" rooms. As far as I'm concerned this includes weed, too. I'm an ex tobacco smoker and I know that if I lit a cigarette in one of these rooms there would be hell to pay. These hotels need to state to the inconsiderate pot smokers that "non-smoking" includes them too. No doubt this problem is only going to get worse. Despite these couple of annoyances, we would not even think of staying anywhere else. I would highly recommend the Chowchilla Holiday Inn!
