Not close to Downtown as the hotel description states. The rooms have been overly used.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gmb49all Great Work hotel
We go here a lot for work since it is close to a test site in the area. This hotel offers breakfast so we don't have to search for it before we head into work, and the WIFI is decent (although it tends to crawl right around 7 PM, right when everyone is on it). The rooms are nice, I especially like that they include a refrigerator and microwave in every room. However, this hotel has taken a beating in the last few years. It's a nice hotel, especially for work, but it could use a little TLC - I've been in rooms where certain things are broken or missing, such as shower shelves, shower heads, bathtub drains, etc. None of these things were awful or deal breakers for me, but they do take the "polish" off of a hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dakota1951 A Great Place To Stay!
I have to travel over 240 nights a year and to find a place that is quiet and comfortable... well, it's more than a plus. The whole staff is wonderful and it's nice to arrive and be greeted by smiling cheerful faces. It gets my seal of approval!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Onetoughnite Wedding Nightmare
We have stayed here in the past and had a nice stay. This time during our first night we had a note slipped under the door warning us of a wedding the following night. The note informed us that the PARTY would be done by 11:00 pm. The Wedding Was directly under our room the Music was so loud the floors Vibrated and the Toilet seat rattled. My 7 year old cried her self to sleep for an hour and a half with a pillow over her head. Our friends in the room next door complained and were told the manager would be there in the morning. Others on the third floor also complained. The music went till well after midnight. We checked out before the manager arrived for work. We called and she apologized. She said they didn't think people would be in bed that early. Last time I checked you stay at a hotel to Sleep! She did say she would give us half our money back for one nights stay. Half the night is about how long we slept. So I guess that's fair. Nice place Just ask what else might be going on, while your visiting

I have stayed at many hie but never had a breakfast that was not hot. All hot items were just warm. This would not be a problem if you had a microwave to use. Warren

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 1Vettebudman Area under renovation, with no takeout food in walking distance.
This area appears to be in a renovation stage with chain link fences around empty lots. I asked for nearest area for food type places and was told to drive about 2.5 miles back towards Sacramento. Should be very nice once area is cleaned up and they open some dining places close to establishment. Just stayed in room and ate what we had in ice chest.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tessamen A bit outside
The hotel is situated a bit outside the shopping centers but with a car easy to access. For us a perfect place to stay and visit some malls. The hotel, brand new, is very nice. Staff did all the could to make us comfortable. Our TV set was not working correctly but was repaired after we returned from shopping. Had a nice spacious king size room without any noises. Sadly it was to cold to use the outside pool but that looked very nice. Breakfast was okay, all you need was there. And you don't expect much more. All in all a nice hotel to stay. When ever in the vicinity we will return!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by kitkat05604 nice staffs but the room is poorly insulated!
Nice front staffs but because of the poor insulation, I can hear lots of noise in the room. When the person staying next door, closing the bathroom door, I can hear it from my bed. The a/c was working on/off.
I did not sleep at all. The next day, I was so tired!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FM77 Excellent room and staff
We visited all the Sacramento tourist sites from this hotel. Easy access from the Hwy and surprisingly quiet, relatively new hotel so everything was nice and clean. We had very good breakfast every day and Maritza, the lady that attends the breakfast bar is very clean and attentive. If you do not mind the 15-20 minutes drive into downtown this is a great choice.

This is the second time we stayed at this location. Hotel is decent even though it's not the best area of town. On par with most HIE Hotels. Nice staff. Could you a good directory of close eateries. Sent us more than 5 miles away.

I was warmly greeted as a platinum member. All of the staff was friendly and the room was comfortable and clean. The only complaint I could have is the wireless connection was intermittent in the evenings.

The only drawback to this hotel is hte location. Not in the best part of town. But it is close to shopping.
Beds are great and very comfortable. Rooms were very clean and the front desk staff was very nice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by REAJs Felt like Ambassadors
My family and I were tired after driving from Georgia to California while stopping at a hotel which I want mention their names gave us a room that the manager later admitted he knew it was dirty, it was missing towels and face cloths for which we had to go and retrieve from the front desk. Eventually they gave us a reduced price the next morning. However when we got to Fresno California around 9pm and started looking for a hotel we decided to give Holiday Inn a try in Madera. The clerk was friendly and excited to see us, she encouraged me to sign up for their points program. The room was huge suite, because we needed two queen beds but we were offered the only room available was a king and a pull out couch. Sacramento we stayed two nights due to scheduled stay over. However as we traveled back to Georgia we began looking only for Holiday Inns. The nicest one was in salt lake city for the same price we paid in Madera but far more plush with real breakfast brought to table by a waitress. When we arrived at night we ordered a pizza from their inside bar the kitchen was closed due to early renovations but the bartender went out of her way to contact the kitchen staff and got us a hot pizza now that's service in Salt Lake City. The other Holiday inns have the same breakfast choice which was ok but the eggs remind me of Army MRE's. Some Hotels were a challenge to find because some are a mile or two from the exits or nestled behind other hotels. As a family of color my experience over the years at some hotels have been very negative and demeaning but for the first time at the Holiday Inns we felt like humans yes ambassadors. Mr. Sal was great in the town of Boonville, MO. Thanks for the wonderful experience. Yes we made it back home safely with smiles to last a life time.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by wxyx321 Lapses in service and cleanliness
I stay at this hotel frequently for business. Upon leaving towels I used that morning on the floor, the full complement of towels were NOT replaced that evening when I returned and the ones on the floor were re-folded and hung up. In addition, a few of the towels and washcloths had make-up remains on them.
Later that evening when I wanted to warm up aa snack, I discovered that pizza from the previous guest was still in the microwave.
Not exactly what i would call first class. servce or attention to detail.
:Lastly, the numerous times I left messages about these conditions at the front desk and in-person, I was NEVER contacted by hotel management.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrJandFamily Enjoyed our stay
Except for one unfortunate problem, our stay was very satisfactory. The unfortunate problem was that our daughter accidentally left our car unlocked and all of its contents were stolen during the night. Obviously, there are unsavory people in the area and guests must be very careful to protect themselves and their property.

Based on prior experience with Holiday Inn Express, we trustingly booked the brand. Our trust was not misplaced. We were especially impressed by the spaciousness and the well maintained condition of everything. We think this site is a model for the rest of the chain to follow.

Another great experience visiting this hotel. I was greeted immediately for being Priority Club Platinum member. The beds were comfortable for all 4 family members. The breakfast was OK w/normal selections. The staff is always helpful & positive. Even though the location is a bit far compared to business locations in greater Sacramento area, but if you're looking for a great place to stay, it is definitely worth the extra time.
