“Very Pleasurable Stay!”
Reviewed 11 October 2011

The best feature of this hotel was the very hard working, courteous and helpful staff. The front desk staff was extremely helpful in getting my boarding passes for my flight squared away.The room was very clean and a good size at a very reasonable price. Good location between Palo Alto(Stanford) and San Francisco and the airport. Excellent breakfast with many choices, that was meticulously maintained by their staff. Will definitely stay there again on our next visit.

This Holiday Inn Express is not in the greatest of locations however it is very handy if you need to get up and down the valley. Very close to the 101 and on Woodside and access to the 280. Not a hotel for holidays but great for business.

The rooms are large and the bed is very comfortable. Only thing to remember is to ask for a room towards the back or the noise from El Camino is loud.

Room Tip: Ask for one at the back of the hotel

My husband and I stayed here for a week while he was on business. The hotels we had originally wanted to stay in were booked so we had to "settle" for a Holiday Inn. I was not thrilled but it was my first time in CA so I did not complain. I have to say I was impressed! The rooms are beautiful. They are sparkling clean, comfortable, and tastefully decorated. Our bed was extremely comfortable as was the entire room. The front desk staff is helpful and polite if not enthusiastic about being good hosts to you during your stay and the breakfast in the morning is a great way to start off. They have something hot like eggs, omelets, ham, bacon, sausage etc. And it changes for variety everyday! Te chain apparently also has their own brand of Cinnamon bun, which was ok but the biscuits were great! They also had the normal items you would expect to find on a breakfast bar such as fruit, pastry, and yogurt. My room was clean everyday and was a welcome sight to a worn down tourist at the end of everyday. Even though we debt get the five star hotel we had wanted I'm still glad we stayed here! It was great!

We had a great time and enjoyed the redwood city HIX for our accomodations. Staff were very cordial and helpful, room was quiet and linens adequate, comfortable bed and pillows and parking was very convenient to our room. the quiet neighborhood was both secure and relaxing. Eating area was roomy and convenient. I especially liked the gourmet coffee and the chocolate cocoa.

Surrounding might be misleading, but it is a good hotel in what seems to be not upscale but pretty safe neighborhood . I was upgraded and the room was excellent. (no great view from window; but I did not need it anyway). Breakfast is pretty basic , but still it comes handy. Hotel is a 15 min walk form redwood city train station with hourly trains to San Francisco and San Jose (via Palo Alto). Walk to train station is via a well lit very walkable center of town. I walked after 11pm and it felt safe. Front desk is helpful and efficient . Overall a good budget option in the ara.

We were pleasantly surprised when staying at this hotel to visit family. The accommodations were clean and the service was very helpful. One of the things we were especially impressed with was the breakfast that was included with our stay! This was no "coffee and pastry" breakfast, but one that offered pancakes, pastries, omelets (moist and with diced ham and cheese), yogurt, bagels, french toast, cereal, and more!! There was also an abundance of coffee, both decaf and regular along with assorted flavors of creamer. Since we stayed 2 nights, we noticed that the offerings even changed over the 2 mornings for even more variety! Their breakfast room was welcoming and was a great way to start our day. :) We'll be back!
