“Best choice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2014

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!

Room Tip: This is a very agricultural area which is in transition so don't expect a view. I would highly r...

Dear Valued Guest,
Thank you for your recent stay with us and for taking the time to share your experience with us. I am happy to hear that you do stay with us often and it is a pleasant stay when you do, our staff does their very best to ensure every guest receives a friendly welcome and feels at home during their stay. I do apologize for the television issue you had inside of the gym. We have been having some issues with it and have been working to fix this issue. I do also apologize for smoking issue. We are a 100% non-smoking facility and this does include all things. We do try our best to control it and would have taken action had we known. I do once again apologize and hope that these issues do not steer you away from returning with us in the future. Thank you again for sharing and look forward to seeing you during future visits.

Kind Regards

I received a free upgrade + points for completing this review. The hotel room was huge! I really appreciated for staying the first time they offered it to me. The breakfast room was very full but I found a table. Everything was clean and orderly. The staff was also very friendly.

he Holiday Inn Express & Suites Gateway to Yosemite, Is the best place to stay when visiting the Parks of Yosemite, a long stay, or simple an overnight stay driving to another destination.
From the awesome front desk " Welcome to my Home" service from Monica, Ashley, Kim and the others. To the filling fresh breakfast served daily from 6am to 9am by Socorro and the others. They serve hot cereals, cold cereals, fresh fruits, muffins, breads, the best cinnamon rolls in California. Fresh hotcakes, eggs, omelets, fresh healthy meats, and coffees and juices. The food is truly something for the whole family to enjoy. Last but not less. The housekeeper are excellent. They keep you with fresh towels and a nice cleaned room daily. Enjoy your stay. And when you go to the park or someone ask you where did you stay last night. Tell them " I was smart, I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Gateway to Yosemite in Chowchilla, CA. last night and you should too"

Comfortable and extremely clean! This is a completely smoke free facility, too, so that's nice. We fit 3 people in a King bed and were still very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious with much variety...and complimentary.

It was a wonderful stay and I really liked how the bed was set up with two different pillows. I like soft and my husband like firm. really appreciated the differences. We only stayed one night and it was very clean and was nice to be able to have our pets in the same room

Room Tip: We stayed on the third floor which was convenient for our pets
