Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RGS3 Great Staff & Breakfast
From day one at check in until check out the staff was unbelievably cordial and extremely helpful. Directions to restaurants, local sites, and shopping locations, it really did not matter and each and every recommendation was spot on to what we required. The breakfast buffet was by far the best I experienced as an IHG member. The bedding and mattress was probably the most comfortable I have slept in for a while during my travels. It could have been the weather or the fact it was just California and not Wisconsin. Either way this is a great place to stay and you will not be disappointed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by curtisb34 great hotel
I've found Holiday Inn to be a nice motel with a very pleasant staff, this is it. A full-service restaurant and bar is a definite plus. Food is above average. Free wi-fi, and relatively quiet at night. The room was good sized, modern and has the amenities that'll please both men and women. The bed is Select Comfort brand so I had to play with the controller to find my Comfort level. I recommend the restaurant for a good breakfast, not free but real food, well worth the money, Will return again. Thanks to all the staff for a great job.

We had a great stay at this facility. The staff was friendly and very helpful, and the facility was clean and very nice. The restaurant also was great. Only hiccup was not knowing the shuttle wasn't available late at night. Got a reasonable taxi ride from the BART station instead.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dhj1974 Great location and staff
I've stayed at the Holiday Inn Dublin off an on for over two years. I can choose what hotels I stay at, but when I'm working within an hour drive from this hotel I will stay here. My wife and I have stayed there on vacations. Partly it is that it is easy walking distance to convenient shopping and they have a shuttle to a nearby shopping mall. The other part is that the staff is always friendly and helpful. That's not just the ones that I already know, but I'll check in with totally new people and they are the same. You can tell that manager, Sione, is there coaching the new people. That's probably why it is so consistent, but they hire good people. This is a good place to stay if you are in the area.

Hats off to Sione at the front desk for making my stay such a pleasurable experience! As much as I travel, it is nice to be remembered by my name and treated like I'm staying with friends.
It's also nice with all of the restaurants in the area, that the best food is right at the hotel. For me, this hotel is #1.

I was in room 110.
In the morning, staff and guests walking down the hallway and talking, were easily heard inside of the room.
Had trouble hearing myself talk on the phone.
The card swipe reader at the side door was not working properly and I had to wait for a staff member to let me in.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Checkemout This hotel is the best and I'm not easy to please!
Rooms are newly remodeled. Public areas are nicely furnished. Staff is helpful and efficient.
I travel almost every week and I'm seldom impressed by a hotel and most often find something that I don't like. Not here.
I'm usually a Marriott customer but found this hotel to exceed the full Marriotts and the other Marriott brands in this area and to be a much better value.
At check-in, the had a free cookie for me. Wow. And, they said it had no calories. Ah, yes, I'm sure.

The hotel advertised a package including a buffet, but they did not have it nor did they provide any credit for the lack of advertised service.
They did not provide complimentary newspaper, not did they recognize the priority club membership.

I stayed at this site for one night while visiting for business. They have a great location with everything you need very close by and within walking distance. Paul and his team were extremely helpful and did everything they could to make us comfortable during our stay, absolutely going above and beyond when we asked to help. They had a nice buffet that started at 6am and had a decent variety of items. I would absolutely recommend this property to others staying in the area, great hospitality.

Room Queen Executive was very small even though I paid the same price as other members of my party who had two queen bed rooms which were at least twice the size.
Sliding glass door wouldn't close completely causing noise in the room all night.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Polina Very friendly and helpful staff!
I stayed in Dublin for one night with my husband and a 5 month old baby. Upon check in I was upgraded to a king, which was really nice. My name was listed at the front desk as a gold member, I was pleasantly surprised. I had a ton of staff to bring into the room with a baby dangling in front of me and the front desk attendee went out of his way to help me with it! Thank you very much! That said, the room was on a tighter side and there was virtually no space left after I set up a portable crib. Overall, if you don't have a lot of things, it is a great place to stay! And friendly staff makes all the difference.

Location is excellent for getting on the 680 freeway with the drawback of freeway noise. Try to get rooms near the lobby or in the anex Bldg. Excellent location for food, as there is an Outback steakhouse next door and Safeway grocery store 3 blocks away.
even though outside property is old, the room have be updated and many have microwaves and fridge. If heading towards Silicon Valley in the morning(South bound 680 freeway) make sure you're on the road before 7:30am. Sat _ Sun no traffic.

I do not recommend this property.
My wife and I are regular holiday inn guests. We were happy when my military unit announced that our annual formal event would be at this property. We saved our rewards points and used them for this stay.
At our large function a meal was served. The meals were over cooked, cold and bland. The bar tender was talking on his telephone during our event speakers presentation and had to be told to leave. We were only able to communicate our meal choice with the wait staff because someone at the table spoke spanish. While they were nice, it was frustrating.
When we got to our room we noticed several issues. The closet door was stuck closed. A maintenance person had to come and replace the track. Later than night, we found out that the toilet ran all night and the cable skipped. When we reported this issues, the front desk offered to send someone to fix the issues, but it was late and my wife did not want anyone in the room.
In the morning we checked out. We asked to speak to the manager, however he or she was not available. We were told that he or she would contact us by telephone upon arrival. It has now been more than four days and we have yet to receive a call.
I will update this review if I receive contact from the management at this site.
I do not recommend this property.

I was there for 4 nights and only received a newspaper on 1 morning. Also, I was a bit surprised by my bill when I initialed one nightly rate, but the bill came back with a higher rate for 3of the 4 nights. Lastly, the toilet was difficult to flush ands attention.

For the price the room was incredibly small. There was barely room to walk around the bed. It was TINY. We received toiletries for only one! Two people/two soaps should be the standard. We were shorted other items in the bathroom as well. The "heater" did not work properly either. We had planned on two nights but got out as quickly as we could the first morning. Oh yes, the TV was able to receive only a few stations. With Oakland playing in town, I would expect that to be on. Totally disappointing overnighter.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by edc1208 Great service, sucky room
First, the good stuff: The staff here is wonderful. Friendly, responsive, just all around great. The hotel is clean and quiet inside and out. The indoor pool and hot tub also a big plus. Both were well maintained.
Most important to me was that I was able to bring our 2 dogs to stay with us for a very modest flat fee ($35). When I'm traveling, If I can't take my furry children with me, that hotel is pretty much permanently scratched off my list! There were other pet-friendly hotel options but their pet fees were exhorbitant. So bravo to Holiday Inn Dublin for that.
Now the cons: our 3rd floor room was so small to begin with, and made more cramped with a chaise lounge shoved in there between the bed and the window. Come on now folks - don't shove a king bed and a chaise in a tiny room just so that you can sell it as a deluxe room. Lame. And between the big clunky desk chair and the chaise, the window was practically inaccessible. Apparently this was intentional as there was no screen in the window. So when I wanted to open the window for some cool night air I was disappointed. So thumbs down for the room.
Overall I would recommend the HI Dublin.

I do stay at this and other hotels as often as every week and there is a real good reason for that! The staff, from the genial manager, Paul, assistant manager Sione, down through the front desk staff, house maids, maintenance people, dining room, bar and kitchen staff, all, go out of their way to make their guests stay as stress free and a home away from home. I do stay at other hotels on a regular basis and all are fine, otherwise I would not go back,(they are in other towns obviously) but the Pleasanton-Dublin Holiday Inn is my first choice every week, fifty two weeks a year, for the last 10 years. I strongly suggest if you are in the area, give it a try, I am sure you will enjoy it.
PS Look for me at the bar, usually with a bunch of other regulars.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Costa473 Pretty bad overall...
Sleep number beds are HORRIBLE. Windows were broken. Had no do not disturb sign so every morning I got rudely awoken by housekeeping(dead bolt "do not disturb"sign didn't work either). My parents had a two queen room and they didn't have sleep numbers but rather rock hard mattresses. I travel ALL the time for work and this hotel is the most run down and sub par Holiday Inn I've stayed in across the US...

One of the worst hotels I've stayed at. Terrible bed, with poor fitting bedding, so it wadded up all the time. No air circulation in the room, so it was always muggy. Restaurant staff was slow, they didn't pick up the breakfast orders left on the door at night. Hardly any guests, even on a holiday weekend, and they tried to put me in a postage-stamp size little room. Just a poorly run hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TravelerPaul great location
The hotel staff was very helpful, patient and really focused on taking care of their guests. Everyone at the front desk exhibited all these qualities and overall it made my many stays at this hotel very comfortable. I actually stayed at this hotel for over four months as I was working in the area, so I had a chance to stay in many of the rooms.
I would recommend this hotel and hope to stay there again in the future.
