I like Holiday Inn Express and I like Yosemite National Park. What a perfect partnership. The room was very good with very comfortable beds with 4 pillows. We had a mini-refrigerator and a Microwave oven, plus a coffee maker in the room. Of course, breakfast was included and I always get a banana and two coffees to bring up to...

The hotel itself is very easy to get to, don't be fooled by the neighborhood. The staff are great and the rooms are very inviting. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. The free breakfast is just ok. Could change it up a little. Overall the hotel is great.

The room was clean and fresh. The bed was scrumptious! Breakfast was varied and fresh and they welcomed you to take what you wanted as you exited. The diner in the same parking is a good choice if you should need it. We always find Holiday Inn Express to be this way with personable staff.

Stayed as a family in two rooms. Nothing bad to say about the place and I paid with points so not sure how much it costs. Breakfast was surprisingly good for this standard of hotel - the kids loved the self-serve pancake machine. It was just fine for a stay during a long journey.
