"Nice place to stay, going to Sonoma Raceway."
Nice place. VERY friendly staff. Went out of their way to retrieve my stupid son's pillow he forgot. Lots of shopping and cheap gas nearby. EZ on and Off of I-80.

We loved the room. The only negative was the wifi signal. It seemed to be weak at times. Maybe a stronger signal would help the whole place. Other then that it was great.

Hotel was ok. Mother's Day they gave the cleaning staff off, so no room service. On departure one guest had his car broken into.

"Convenient compromise"
Spent a few weeks here for some work in Vallejo. The location is a good compromise between Vallejo and the city/airports. Not a whole lot going on around here but it's easy to hop on the freeway and get to good food or anything else. Not the cheapest rate considering the location but I'm sure it gets worse the further South you go.

The milk at breakfast was rotten (literally chunks in the milk), took it to the front desk and just got referred to the kitchen with no apologies, then the lady went and took the rest of the milk out of the fridge but left the fridge door open :P. Other than that OK. WiFi works well.

"You can always count on Holiday Inn"
The hotel served its exact purposes I needed it to. We were in town for a wedding so my family and I simply needed a comfortable place to relax, get ready, and a breakfast prepared. The gym was an average area for a hotel but as I said, all in all this hotel was exactly what the Mrs and I were expecting and its good to have your expectations met.

"Extremely expensive"
The only reason I stayed here was because my client in Richmond warned me away from most others in the area. I have stayed in many nicer places in much less sketchy neighborhoods for less than half the price. I think next time I'll stay further out in the 'burbs where I can get a basic Best Western or whatever for $120. The few minutes of travel time I saved was not worth the price premium. The room was clean enough, nice bed, etc., but it was extremely noisy. At first I was happy to see there was a sauna but it was dead cold the first night. Night two I turned it on at about 6pm and by 8pm it was barely warm enough to make perspiring an idea much less induce a full sweat - total waste of time. No pool or spa, just a couple of treadmills and one stationary bike. I wasn't comfortable leaving anything in my truck so many trips back and forth hauling tools. Internet service was OK at times but very difficult to establish a reliable connection. One of the most expensive rooms I've ever stayed in but not very restful overall.

"Disappointing HI Experience"
Overall, it makes me disappointed. Staff working diligently but not friendly. The hallway is like a after party scene over the nights. And disappointingly, breakfast is served with disposable dish and plastic fork and knife... Maybe consider to switch to silverware would be a good idea to make things feeling less cheap.

"Slight disappointment"
I usually stay with Holiday Inn Express as it offers great value and services. Yet this time I am left disappointed. Checking-in nice and friendly and the room is spacious and clean. But thats it for the plus. The hallway is left with the pieces of trash on the same place like no one is vacuuming throughout but three nights stay. The breakfast is nothing but average and everything from plates to utensils are disposables. Not Eco-friendly and feels cheap. Above all, staff I met seems to be busying with something else in the empty lobby. The only "good morning" I heard in the hotel was from the guest staying next door. Not a greeting, not a hi, nothing from any of the staff....

"A little pricey for the area"
Hotel was ok. It was clean. But the smell of weed smoke filled the hallways. The staff were friendly compared to the other hotels we stayed at in that area. Breakfast was good. The area was a little hoodish. Which leads to price, it was over priced for the overall experience.

"Clean Hotel, Not a safe neighborhood at night"
We arrived towards the night around 9:30pm, As we entered the neighborhood, we could tell this was not the good part of town. The area resembled east LA. About a block from the hotel, an individual cut in front of us and got out of their old looking car appearing under the influence to provoke a fight. My family and I got very frightened. While checking into the hotel and while parked in front of the main lobby, a couple suspicious individuals where checking out parked vehicles including ours. The hotel itself does look clean and well kept. The staff was friendly. The convenience of the hotel location is great. Its just located in an unsafe neighborhood. So by the time you are in your room, you have the chance of experiencing something that may keep you thinking about your family's safety and parked vehicle during your stay. It is located behind a shopping center, which does create a convenience. So you will need to decide the pros and cons. You are saving money compared to San Francisco. Thankfully nothing happened to the car overnight and we where fortunate to have our room located as close as possible to our car. Will we stay here again? Definitely Not. Its not worth the risk.

The breakfast was terrible. And the price we pay for the room was way to high in comparison to other Holiday's Inn. The parking space was not enough for all the guest. If I need to make a change in my reservation, I have to do it via Expedia. They could not make any change. They can not access my reservation at all.

"Everything you expect from an Holiday Inn Express"
This place is well recommended. The room was clean, and it looked like everything was new, very pleased with the bedding. The Breakfast was nice bigger with more things than I expected which was a nice surprise. It was kinda far from the downtown areas but if you have a car the drive isn't all that bad. And it is just down the road from a Casino.

"Fire alarm kept going off first night of my stay"
The fire alarm kept going off multiple times at 4 am, 4:15 am and then again at 11 am in the morning. I spoke to the front desk about it and they said the manager would call me , they never did. In addition there was no dial tone on the phone in my room. This is the second time a Holiday Inn Express has ruined my stay. I will never stay at a HIE again. Management's attitude sucks. I want my money back for the first night stay on 5/24/14

"Noisy hotel"
The hotel and rooms are nice and clean. The breakfast was ok with lots of options (but surprisingly no fruits). The big issue is the noise. I guess the walls are very thin. You can hear the guests in the rooms next to yours and in the room above. AND you can hear people in the corridors. For the price (which is quite high), I would have expected to be able to sleep peacefully.

"Close to Richmond CA"
Convenient to Richmond CA (don't stay in Richmond CA) this hotel has a decent hot breakfast with pastries and juices. Hotel was comfortable and quiet, even though it's right off the freeway. Staff was knowledgeable and courteous. Lots of restaurants in the area. A bit hidden though and needs more signage, as you basically need to drive behind the adjoining shopping center on what looks like the back service road.

I was staying in the area for business over a 3 day period. For being right off the freeway, this hotel is extrmely quiet so I was able to sleep well and work when I was in the room. A gym is available too which is great. Its location does not lend it to jogging outside the hotel grounds.

"Close to my family's homes"
I think this hotel is excellent in every point at our previous numerous stays BUT this stay was not so good. Our room had not been cleaned on our second day 4/19. Mentioned it to the clerk and asked if our sign was on door which I wasn't sure. These signs should have a choice One side Please Clean Room and the other Please Do not Disturb. Also we had to wait for an hour for our ride in the dining area and were chased out so they could clean. The lobby should be available during the day hours. Please don't use this review for your web site. Maybe a discount on a future visit would be nice Thank you

"Pleasantly Surprised."
Room was very clean, front desk clerks were always nice and professional either on phone or in person. Room was surprisingly modern and updated, crown molding, refrigerator, flat screen LED tv, bathroom mirror with fluorescent or LED lit frame. I liked the rotunda staircase from level 2. I actually preferred walking down it more than using their elevator. Free complimentary breakfasts with a hi-tech pancake machine that literally "printed" pancakes! Was only in town for a couple of days for a funeral, but if ever in town visiting family - will stay there again.

"Low price, close to city, but several drawbacks"
This was a low cost hotel, with all the amenities I asked for, and relatively close to the East Bay. However the breakfast was less than average, with little fruit or other healthy options. The walls are thin, so you hear next door quite well. The rear entrance door lock would freeze up at night, making entry a great challenge. The workout room was in its own building, where no heat was on, and the TV was fixed on an infomercial channel. The hotel is in a mall, and seems to attract questionable characters. But there is lots of fast food, and cheap local eateries, nearby.
