“Weekend of Wedding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

I choose this hotel because it wwas closer than the Marriott and my wedding venue was minutes awat, Upon arrival I was helped by the front desk clerk Janet....Janet was really great and assisted me with a concern I had regarding a mix up on the reservations she went aabove and beyond & straightend out the mix up and accommodated us accordingly, The rooms were very nice and clean, nice continental breakfast.

Thank you Janet!

We stay at the Holiday Inn Express in San Pablo about three or four times a year. It is convient for late night at our Elks Lodge when we don't wan to travel the 30+ miles home to Hayward. At times the "seasonal rates" can be rough but we just can't innore the convience.
The rooms are always clean and equiped with what we need especially the fridge for keeping left overs cold. I have never had a complaint about a staff member and always find them pleasent and helpful. We sometimes bring family and friends from out of town and have never had a problem making whatever special arrangements we need.
The breakfast is just about the best I have ever found in a hotel. Great eggs, sausage and biscuits. I did not have but noted the "instant pancakes" available.
And as usual check out was a breeze.

Room Tip: Pick a low number to avoid being on the freeway side. However, I have never noted freeway or road n...

This is a really good hotel if you dont want to stay in san francisco. No parking fee, really good breakfeast, lots of choice. Some day it could be hard to find a place beacause there is a lot of person but go when it is not the rush. It cost 6 $ to go on the bridge to san francisco in the peek periode or 4$ when it is pass 10:00 am.
The hotel was really clean.

We stayed for just one night while travelling through the East Bay area. The hotel is tucked behind a semi-seedy shopping center anchored by a Ross store. However, once you get back to the hotel, it's pretty nice. The room was good sized and everything worked fine. It was quiet and the breakfast was good. Would stay here again.

Our recent stay at this hotel was a lovely experience. We have had some very bad experiences at HIE during our trip and walked in expecting more of the same. We were very pleasantly surprised. Our rooms were all ready and very clean, and next to each other as requested. We received a welcome pack as priority club members, the 1st time this holiday! The lady who checked us in had a great dinner recommendation, which we found to be perfect. We were even offered a glass of wine. The breakfast was well oganised and kept clean. Well done and thank you.

I called a week before asking for room preference, when we arrived later in the evening after a long drive, they had our reservation and the room saved as promised, that was a pleasant surprise. Rest of the 2 days/nights were really great. Another plus is the breakfast, and its a hot breakfast so no need to run to another place to grab one. First time staying at this location, great experience for the price, rooms are spacious, clean, quiet (we couldn't hear the traffic at all on I-80), bed was comfy, manager/staff was nice, we will come again as long as it stays as is.

we recently rented out a conference room here at the Holiday Inn the front desk girls were just a treat to meet when I first arrived beautiful smile happy faces. I need some documents printed up off of the flash drive and it was no issue there were more than happy to help and also they spent at least 25 minutes making copies of documents for me and there's the status with anything we needed during our stay there. I would highly recommend them and I would choose this place again for conference.
