Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TNCM Best check-in experience
Hotel was average is some ways, but really great in others. I have checked in to IHG hotels all over the Bay Area dozens of times in the last 2 months and this was by far the best check-in. Simple, direct, and friendly. As an IHG Gold member, it was the first cold bottle of water I have received - the little things DO make a difference!
Room cleanliness was ok, and closet a little awkward, but overall it is a great place to stay for the location and price. The only bad thing was that the door frame to my room (246) actually moved - when I would enter the whole thing actually would move to hit the wall, then come back out. I still felt safe, but could be a little unnerving to someone.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by soccer11 Interesting visit
The hotel itself was clean. The distance between our room and the lobby was surprising and kind of an adventure! The sliding door in our room was broken so could not be opened which led to an increase in humidity as there was also no fan in the bathroom. The noise level was comfortable and overall the stay was pleasant.

This hotel is consistently staffed with friendly knowledgeable personnel.
The rooms and common areas are always very well kept up.
It is obvious that the staff has been very well trained and are vested in the success of the business.
My congratulations to the ownership and management team for delivering a top quality experience.

We travel to the east bay several times a year for soccer events and i have stayed at this location 5 to 6 times over a year. Great location and they always meet our needs. I would highly recommend this property for any teams needing a location.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RED215 comfortable bed and great service
the room was good everything worked ok. The breakfast was great
The idea of a buffet style and ordering from the kitchen was nice
and Maria helped immensely.She made every thing so easy.
Can't imagine breakfast without her. A real asset for your early
Your shuttle service was always ready and punctual as we needed
rides to and from the bart station.
The dinner we had was excellent and the waitress was also.
All in all a great place to stay.

We were in town for a funeral, already a stressful occasion. We drove during the night from Utah and arrived way before the normal check in time. The staff was reallty helpful and asked housekeeping to clean a room for us. We went to lunch and came back. They had a room ready for us by noon and let us check in.
There was coffee set up in the hallway that was very good. Our only complaint would be that the beds were really hard but the room was clean.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by HotelCritic4U Great location but....
Our first room had a problem with the sliding door that only opens 4 inches. It wouldn't close and had 2 inches of space that allowed all of the traffic noise from the 580 seep in. The view was of trees and the top of the indoor pool. The room had a musty smell, like they cleaned the carpets, forgot to use shampoo, and let that 2 inches of space from the sliding door dry it. My wife made me ask for another room away from traffic. The person that checked me in was about to give me a different room with the smell of smoke, if it wasn't for the other receptionist. Unfortunately, we got a similar room with the similar musty smell as the first. Instead of the sliding door, we had a window that could only open 4 inches. I think it was a safety precaution so that you wouldn't jump out in search of fresh air. Also, this one didn't have a microwave and refrigerator, which was a bummer, because we brought bottles of water to chill. At least it was much quieter. Keep in mind this is an old building. It's pretty dingy. And, I don't think those sleep number beds worked that well. Be prepared to bring a flashlight if you are thinking about going out for dinner. We got prime parking upon check in around 6 PM but went out for dinner and came back around 9 PM. We had to park way in the back where darkness dwells and it was quite frightening. Also, our package said free breakfast for two, but we found out that morning that it was $20 towards breakfast and anything over would come out of pocket. I smirked and nodded my head to my wife as others were surprised to hear the same bad news. It would be nice if they told you that at the front desk. In fact, the person checking me in didn't realize we got the breakfast package and I sort of felt uncomfortable bringing it up. I didn't want to sound cheap asking "What about my free breakfast?" Of course my wife sent me back to the front desk to get the coupons. No big deal though. At least the breakfast staff was friendly and helpful.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by charging Did not meet expectations
Allow me to begin by saying I stay in hotels about 40 weeks out of each year so I think I've got a pretty good idea about what I expect and what is not tolerable. If you stay at this hotel, you may find the rooms less than acceptable, I know I did. I stayed twice this past week and each time the room was in need of updating. It's not that housekeeping did a poor job but the accommodations are pretty old and tired, to be frank. I did have the unpleasant experience on both nights of hearing my neighbors as well as the ground maintenance working outside my room for about 10 minutes at 8:30am. The staff was good so I have no complaints about the service.

Disappointed in service. I was celebrating my 10 year wedding anniversary and did not even get a congratulations. My husband found a hair on the bed when we first arrived. There was a bug flying around the room in the evening. The walls are very thin! I kept hearing people and the elevator bell all night. This was our first time staying hear, and I only picked it for the location for us, and that was the best part. We did not eat at the restaurant at the hotel, but the dining room looked nice.

I found the Holiday Inn Dublin-Pleasanton to be a great place to stay while visiting the bay area. It is centrally located with easy access to all the surrounding areas of the bay area. The restaurant was great, and the rooms were clean. They give reward members extra bonus points too!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by sharve Room & Layout
Room and property was average. I read subsequently that this was a retrofit hotel. If that is indeed the case, then it has done a decent job,
I like a firm pillow and this was the only hotel that I believe had a range of soft to firm pillows.
Hotel layout was ordinary. Food options was not clear. Breakfast was not included.
Had a business meeting and the person actually came to my room for a quick 15 minute meeting and asked why this was chosen over other hotels in the area
Staff was helpful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ted777 Excellent Value
I received a complimentary upgrade to a beautiful executive suite with a full kitchen, baby grand piano, huge dining room table, huge closet, and living room area. This affordable hotel is one of the best values in the Bay Area for Priority Club members using points to travel, as the hotel only places a small hold on your credit card if you are paying with points only, and I greatly value the flexibility of their 6PM same-day cancellation policy. This property is a few blocks from BART, within walking distance, and they have a free shuttle within 8 miles of the hotel (a generous radius compared with other hotels). The hotel is also close to shopping, including Target, as well as the 580 freeway. I received a complimentary bottle of water upon check-in as well as 500 welcome bonus points. There is also self-service citrus-flavored water in the lobby. This large, full-service hotel has ample parking, lots of banquet space, and an on-site restaurant. The customer service is professional and courteous. My suite was very clean, with a large flat-screen TV with a selection of high-definition channels, as well as an easy-to-use environmental control system that allows continuous operation of the fan without having to run the compressor.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by sircrash Some good and some not so good....
We stayed at the hotel the last weekend of July as part of a group contract for our kids soccer team. As part of the contract we had a set room rate and free breakfast for both Saturday and Sunday. The rate we got without question but had to badger the front desk clerk for the vouchers for breakfast. And then they were unwilling to issue more than one days vouchers at a time. Looking back I don't know why we bothered, the breakfast on Saturday was terrible and Sunday wasn't much better. On Saturday they had scrambled eggs and bacon, bread (no toaster) and cold French toast. We had to ask for knives and then got plastic utensils. Really? Is the hotel being run by the TSA who thinks we are airborne or something? Sunday we had all plastic utensils but the eggs, bacon, sausage and French toast were at least hot.. However no toaster ever appeared for the bread and bagels although there was butter and jam. The room was OK-we were upgraded to a suite as they ran out of rooms with two queen size beds. The bathroom was clean and we had plenty of towels. We had no other problems except the ice machine on the third floor was broken the whole time we were there-the others worked sometimes but it was pretty clear from the staffs attitude that they weren't ready for soccer teams or special requests so beware.

As usual I had a wonderful stay. I felt like family during my stay. I have stayed here quite a few times and I always feel at home. The staff always insure my stay is enjoyable. Lovely checked me in and is very professional and kind. I always feel welcomed when I walk through the door. Room was great and meeting room was nice!!!
Breakfast was great, along with the Service. I met Kirsten for the first time and she asked if there was anything she could do for me and was very professional. It's refreshing to see everyone (Staff) smiling and happy. They ensured my stay was great.
I will continue to stay at this location in the future.

The reservation was easy, staff expected my arrival which was late. Room well maintained for older hotel. Greeted with bottled water on a warm late evening? Sleep number bed worked pretty well. Old fashioned window air a little noisy but it worked fine. Great access to freeway and Pleasanton for meetings. Staff is very efficient and friendly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gutiman Helpful Staff, Clean Rooms, Good Meeting Facilities, Comfortable
I have stayed at this Holiday Inn in Dublin for many years now for business (back when it was a Radisson). They have been renovating the rooms, and as far as I can see, they are about done. It is a much more modern and inviting hotel now. The Staff is very helpful and courtious! Rooms are comfortable and clean. The meeting facilities are also very nice, and the food is good. It is an overall excellent motel in a great location! The only negative things I can say is that many times they are booked, and I can't always get a room there, and building is older, so sometimes you get that "old building" smell, but I don't think there is much they can do about that.

This is our second stay at this property. The location is right off the freeway, restaurants and shopping are close by. The rooms are decorated nice. I do have an issue with housekeeping and maintance. The shower head was pulling out from the tile and the tp holder was coming out of the wall. The drain was very slow. Housekeeping came into my room while I was in the shower. And I had a conversation with the maid, asking for her to come back later. Did she not hear the shower running? And there were spiders in my room. I did call down to the front desk about the spiders......they were removed. The maintenance issues can easily be taken care of.
Don't the managers spend the night in some of the rooms to see if their staff is doing their jobs?
I am sure that we will stay here again. The front desk staff was very nice and quickly checked us in.
