Room is pretty standard for Holiday inn, with a nice bed and decent bathroom. But this hotel is a bad place to stay if you need to sleep during a roadtrip or in any other situation. The hotel is located nearby a railroad. Trains run nonstop and the noises make any kind of decent sleep impossible. The service was sufferable.... More

I always review based on what I paid, so that it's fair. This certainly isn't the nicest Holiday Inn I've stayed at, but at ~90/night, it was a good value. Pros: Clean, good nightly rate, good customer service, good standard Holiday Inn breakfast. Cons: There is a train that runs right next the hotel and you can hear its horn... More

My husband and I were driving to Southern California very late one Wednesday night with plans to stay at a hotel for the night some where around the Riverside or San Bernardino area.

I've stayed at a few Holiday Inn properties in SoCal and nearly every time I'm disappointed by the customer service standard. But the Colton Holiday Inn Express has restored my faith. The nice lady working the front desk--I think her name is Christina--was incredibly friendly. Her customer service skills far surpassed my expectations. She smiled the entire time and genuinely...

This hotel is very close to the freeway for easy access to Riverside and other cites. Fairly quiet from the freeway noise. Not much around this hotel.

The renovation continues and the inconveniences continue. No lobby all amenities working out of temporary facilites if they exit at all. I will say that the renovated rooms are very nice and when the work is finally finished this will definitly great a much higher rating. One problem that will contine is the train noise that continues through the night.
