Definitively the atmosphere I was looking for when I needed a place for 5 nights. There are two different shopping centers with very good restaurants, each less than a 10 minute walk. The close proximity to the freeway made for very easy navigation. The front desk staff was very accommodating, particularly Danna. She made the check in experience very easy... More

Location next to the freeway, very load. Hard to sleep. When tried to switch rooms, front desk agent and hotel Manager very unprofessional. Hotel almost empty, but they would not compromise to switch room that requested. Front desk personnel very rude and not being honest.

I have stayed here for years, the hotel is under new ownership and the customer service is deteriorating. While having a late business dinner we were told we could not order dessert as the kitchen had closed at 9 pm. This is not the service they provided in the past, so sad! The hills here we come.

This hotel feels brand new and is less than 3 minutes off the 5 freeway. The rooms are very nice and well appointed, and the staff is excellent. Morning breakfast is very good. Overall, a great property at a really fair price.

Have visited this hotel several times during past 1+ year. It is a nice hotel to stay and surprisingly quiet. You would think that a hotel next to I5 is a noisy one but not this one.

We stayed here for a few days. Room was very comfy and clean. Great restaurant area. There is a breakfast buffet or menu with quite a few varieties, but it's not free. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

We stayed here while visiting family in Southern California. Our room consisted of two beds, mini microwave, mini fridge and desk/chair. The whole room, including the bathroom, were clean and ready for guests.

In these fast times that we live in, it's necessary to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. Los Angeles can be smoggy and loud and sometimes, a wedding and a good time can do just the trick! Staying at this hotel was so nice. I have been to many hotels in California for getaways, anniversaries,... More

We stayed 2 weeks at the Holiday Inn. Housekeeping did a fabulous job. The amenities available (pool, gym, laundry, restaurant, parking, etc) were perfect for us during our vacation. After long days touring the coast, San Diego, etc., we were happy to return to the comforts offered by the Holiday Inn.
