Holiday Inn Express
For context purposes I need to indicate that I spent a week (Nov 2-10) in California travelling around the San Francisco area. During this week I stayed in 4 different hotels/chains. As a result, some of my comment will be in comparison to the other three hotels (which I have not named in this review).
I arrived late afternoon so check-in went as expected: fast and friendly. Of the four hotels I stayed at this one and one other during this trip had reception desk staff that were more than willing to make sure my stay was the best that they could make it.
Like the other three hotels, I stayed in a room with a king bed. This one was facing the highway but I could not here the traffic. My room was tranquil. The room was also clean and spacious. I had no problems what so ever with the room. There were lots of amenities (towels etc.). The bed was firm, but soft enough to be relaxing.
The continental breakfast was what I was expecting, simple but ok. There were both hot and cold items. However, I was disappointed in the fact that the staff member working the breakfast could not keep the item stocked. As a result, most people we waiting for food.
All in all, it is a nice hotel and I’d stay there again. For the price and the quality, it was a good value.
