This hotel is going down in my rating for several reasons. However, still there are some positive things to mention:The staff was welcoming and very friendly. The common areas of the hotel are clean. The breakfast had a wide array of goodies. Freshly baked biscuits and gravy, sausages, oatmeal, etc... Now, our room was not so clean, as a matter of fact, I killed a 2 inch roach in our bathroom and the carpet was very dirty and dusty.

There isn't much more to say here than it was a Holiday Inn... it was exactly as you would expect one to be. We stayed for one night, it was comfortable, clean, friendly (for the most part) so it was good. The view from our window was of a busy road and a truck delivery area, but it wasn't too noisy. The fitness centre was small but it was good to have a little exercise on the road. The hotel is really good where it lost points was this: One slight annoyance was that breakfast was advertised to ... Read more

Overall, we had a great experience at this hotel. It's not too far of a drive from Yosemite and it's right off the freeway. We attempted to check in early hoping we can drop off our stuff before we head to Yosemite but when we called ahead to see if it was possible to check in early.. The lady at the desk told me that there's a $40 charge if you would like to check in early. My boyfriend and I were extremely surprised because no other hotel has ever charged us a fee if our room was available to ... Read more

My daughter and I booked an overnight stay so she could attend a work-sponsored training session. There were two team members at the front desk, Makayla and Monica, who were very gracious and friendly upon our arrival.

The hotel is situated just off the freeway so easy to get to but it is surprisingly quiet and the room was spacious and very clean and tidy. Free breakfast was a bonus and although we came down close to finish time food was still hot and tasty.

We stayed here one night during our visit to Yosemite. As we booked our accommodation late, this was the nearest hotel. We purchased a "Yosemite package", which included one night's stay, a car entry pass into the national parks, as well as two tickets to the Sugar Pine Railway ride. First of all, this hotel is located near some kind of animal farm. The moment we stepped into the hotel, there was a bad smell. Even in the rooms, there was the same smell. This is no fault of the hotel's, but that... Read more

Our overall stay was great. We stayed one night and then decided to stay another. We had to get a different room, but while our family was at the waterpark, housekeeping moved our stuff for us. Imelda at the front desk was THE BEST as were all of them, but we dealt mostley with her. By far the best customer service I have ever received at a hotel. The rooms were clean and smelled good. Doubt I'll ever be this way again, but wouldn't hesitate to stay here.

We have stayed at this hotel several times while visiting at nearby Valley State Prison. We have always been completely satisfied with the room and the service. At times the breakfast bar can be a bit dry, but this time everything was extremely fresh and the attendant kept it super clean and refreshed.

Right off the highway with fuel and food options. This hotel is like new. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was excellent for a buffet with both hot and cold items.

We stayed here after visiting you yosemite ; it is about two hours away. The town has not much going for but the hotel was new and clean in the breakfast was decent. The rooms are a good size and the breakfast was perfectly fine but not anything special. The only real complaint would be that the walls were very thin and you could hear the cars on the highway from any of the rooms and the people talking in the room next to you or their TV.

So you might think, "what's in Chowchilla?" I'll let others decide for themselves. As for the hotel, it is situated right off the highway, making it very easy to get to. And everything a traveler needs is close by. Starbucks? A block away. Rite aid? 2 blocks away. McDonalds? A block away. Great tacos for lunch or dinner? Across the highway.

Our stay at Holiday Inn was perfect. I read many of the reviews before booking, and my experience pretty much aligned with others - professional staff, clean rooms, conveniently located and certainly worth the money. We were visiting family in Merced, so it was just about 15 minutes south of Merced and was very easy to get to as it was located right off the freeway. Which also made the location a little noisy as others had pointed out. But not annoyingly noisy. Breakfast was typical, but certain... Read more

Although Chowchilla offers little in the way of good food, it is close to what there is.

I want everyone to know that the Chowchilla Yosemite Holuday Express has the best accommodations. Starting with front lobby they greet you with a smile they call you about 10 mins later to see if everything is of your liking. Socorro the Breakfast Host, demonstrates the pride she has in her section. It's spotless, always stocked and she's always with a pleasant greeting. I enjoy staying in Holiday Express but this one is special!
