Great family trip

I thought the hotel was decent. I loved the breakfast in the morning. Especially before a long day ahead. Right next to the wild animal park so that was a big plus.

Nice

Booked this last minute during comic con which was about half an hr away from one of the trolley centers. The room was clean, free wifi, hbo, etc. the only complaint I have is the parking area which itself was packed and felt very squishy.

A room to stay

The hotel was just ok. The staff was friendly but the rooms were just ok. We checked in and our first room's carpet was soaked near the patio door. We informed the frost desk and they moved us to another room. When we got home, both my children and husband had bad bug bites on their legs and arms. The location was great, but I would not stay there again.

staff was an upgrade

front desk staff promptly moved and upgraded me when my assigned room was experiencing some air-conditioner problems. Could have simply moved me to a comparable room but chose to make my experience "good stuff"

We enjoyed our stay! The room was clean and the staff was beyond helpful. The breakfast was great! We will stay there again when we visit our family who lives nearby.

Good for short stays

It's pretty much what you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express. The room was clean; the bed was comfortable; the water pressure could have been better. It's close to the freeway, and was perfectly serviceable for the one night we were there.
