We stayed for 10 nights and were pleasantly surprised, first time in a Holiday Inn Express. The rooms were very clean, which is very important to me. The breakfasts were much more than we expected--and saved us a lot of money. It is a long, narrow property, different from the photo advertised, so we weren't sure we were in the right place, but were glad we found it. Having a washer & dryer on our floor was convenient. The exercise room is small, but clean & the 3 pieces of equipment (recumbent bike, treadmill and elliptical) were in excellent condition. Since we were traveling between San Francisco, Livermore & San Jose, Redwood City was a central place to stay. This hotel was close to restaurants, Safeway & Costco. We never had a problem finding a parking space.

We spent four nights at this hotel while attending my granddaughter's graduation at Stanford. It was an extremely convenient location but, more importantly, the service and room were beyond the expectation of a HIE. The quality of the housekeeping was exceptional and the people at the check-in desk were always ready to fulfill any request we had. The attendant at breakfast was friendly and kept things fresh and readily available. The hotel was very quiet and we never heard traffic or neighbor noise. It was the first time in a long time that we felt compelled to tip everyone for the excellent service. It's a great price for a great stay.

I stayed 3 nights at the Holiday Inn Express Redwood City for business. The hotel was close to my business destination and was a real surprise. The room and hotel area were very clean and comfortable and the staff very welcoming and friendly.
The hotel is a good stopover for business in Redwood City

Although familiar with the brand, I was positively surprised by the quality of this place. The room was big, well furnished, extremely clean and with comfortable beds and bedding. The free breakfast was above average, the free WiFi was as good as in any hotel anywhere, and I can only recommend this place.

Stayed one night while visiting Stanford, which is a few minutes (less than 10) away by car. Super comfortable beds and very, very clean. Lovely staff, very helpful in giving directions and recommending restaurants. Good Thai place a couple of doors down, and we ate dinner at nearby "Milagros", an upscale Mexican restaurant/sports bar (no problem for vegetarians). Parked car in attached parking garage for no charge.

Reviewed 28 March 2013

While in the area on business, stayed for 2 nights. No doubt the location on El Camino Real provides access to work and points of interest. Garage parking, a larger room then expected and a very comfortable night's sleep. Although there was a full breakfast, I wasnt able to stop and enjoy it, but it looked like other guests were enjoying it. The cost per night was very reasonable-in fact almost 2 to 1 night at other hotels located a bit further down El Camino Real. The staff was very friendly and helpful throughout my stay. I would stay here again when back in the area.
