Recent guest reviews

We have stayed here in the past and really enjoyed our stay! This trip was a bit of a let down but still good. During check-in i was told that my room was "up graded." When I reserved my room it was for a king, but we ended up with 2 queen beds. It is not really a big deal but would have been nice to sleep next to my wife. The power went out early Sunday morning and as soon as the power came on the staff worked hard to get breakfast ready as quick as they could.

We stayed here for one night on our way home from a brief trip to Ventura. This was an average hotel. Rooms were clean and if you were on the back side of the hotel away from the freeway, you do not hear the freeway noise.

The suite my family and I stayed in was VERY spacious and roomy. We were surprised and very pleased with our room. It was clean and comfortable. My girls were able to run around and have fun in the room. The breakfast buffet was awesome! I loved the sausage gravy. This continental breakfast was THE best out of all the continental breakfasts I have experienced. The pancake maker was a thrill. I wish I had one at home now. Too bad the pool was outdoors. My daughters would have loved to go swimming the day before we hit Six Flags theme park in the middle of December. Conveniently close to shopping centers and restaurants. Overall GREAT experience with this hotel. =)

Hotel was easy off the freeway, right next to Six Flags. (not close enough to walk...unless you have lots of energy!) Hot breakfast included eggs, biscuits, gravy, sausage patty or turkey sausage patty. It also had an amazing pancake machine that produced fresh pancakes in less than a minute!! Yogurt, cereal, warm cinnamon rolls, bagels and cream cheese...lots to choose from!! Pool and hot tub were nice. Pool towels provided inside the pool area. Rooms were quiet, with a mini fridge and microwave. Shower had great pressure. Bath and Body Works shampoo/conditioner and lotions. Laundry room was clean, although the washer was broken on the first floor and I had to alert staff. They gave me my money back so I could use the 2nd floor washer. A sign was immediately placed on the door to the laundry room and it was fixed by the next afternoon. Only complaint was that the bed was a little rough. You could hear the springs when getting in and out of the bed, but while in it, it didn't pop like that. Overall it was a very nice experience!

Perfect location for Six Flags visit! Lots of food-choices right around the hotel.

The rooms were big and clean and the breakfast was excellent.

Close to theme park and interstate. Very nice staff, best free breakfast of any hotel. Quick check-in and check-out. Couple of vending machines were out of order. No problems otherwise

I really liked how the hotel is close to a lot of stores and restaurants,very friendly staff,good food selections for breakfast,just had trouble with the wifi,but overall would definitely stay here again.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. I've rarely seen a team this pleasant at a hotel. Location right off the highway was very convenient.

It was a nice find for our future trips to see our Grand-kids. Fun weekend with family, 10 minutes to our son's house, not even 5 minutes to Valencia's Magic Mountain, next door to 24 hour Denny's and easy directions by map/GPS. Late arrival not a problem, polite staff, clean rooms, easy access to the freeway.

I have been staying at the Holiday Inn Express in Santa Clarita twice a year when I visit my son and grandchildren. I find it extremely comfortable and suits my needs to the tee. I just love the morning breakfast and find most employees very friendly and accommodating. I had one issue this last visit: my room was not cleaned due to a communication between myself and the Hispanic housekeeper. It happens and the hotel rectified the problem in the evening when I returned and saw the bed unmade and bathroom not cleaned. I have been staying at this hotel twice a year for the last 6 years, so one mishap is certainly acceptable.

Living in the central valley makes it difficult to see MLB games unless you want to spend 6-7 hours in the car to either head north to SF or south to LA. The location of this hotel allows you to get far enough out of the LA basin to miss the morning commute and makes the morning drive to work the next day a manageable 2 hour drive. The desk staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. Our room was facing away from the interstate and the bathroom was between our bed and the hallway so we had a very restful nights sleep. I was actually kind of surprised to hear the freeway noise the next morning when we walked out the front door.

We had a stay for one night and arrived late, but staff were friendly. Originally booked one king bed, but were luckily upgraded to double beds since there were 3 of us. Would stay again.

Nice staff, good breakfast, great location if you're going to six flags. There is a shuttle to and from the park. I'd stay here again.

I stopped by this hotelon the way to Disney. The room was clean snd the staff was friendly. The free breakfast and afternoon cookies were nice. It was closed to restaurants, target, and a bank. We had fun at the swimming pool, too. I would stay there again.

Clean friendly staff. Food good. Location was easy to find. The room was clean. This is our second time stating at this hotel and we would recommend it. Te area was quiet and the room was dark enough that we were able to rest

This is a great hotel. The only small drawback is that all of the good restaurants are located on the other side of the highway. Its only 1/4 mile away, but definitely not walkable. The breakfast was really good. We stayed here the night before the Rose Bowl and the place was full of Ducks fans (that's a good thing).

I stayed in this hotel overnight on my trip from San Francisco to LA. Very convenient location next to freeway, but not noisy. Clean spacious room. Good breakfast.

good place to stay if you are going to six flags. close to the park and has a nice breakfest

Overall good experience , no complains. The breakfast was surprisingly good for a hotel. Bed was a little stiff for my taste but not bad.
