Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gibob A pleasant surprise
We had seen positive publicity for the hotel but know that cannot always be relied upon. Upon arrival, first impression was very favorable, and it kept getting better throughout our 2-day stay. A warm, friendly greeting at the front desk typified the staff attitude. Room was large, clean, neat and well appointed. Bed was very comfortable and there was no evidence of outside noise. The courtesy breakfast was also a surprise--not just sweet-rolls and coffee but assorted pastries and cereal, breakfast meat and eggs, biscuits and gravy, pancakes and much more, and an attendant kept everything hot and available throughout the posted hours. When it was time to leave, the checkout experience sent the message that our visit and business was appreciated. If the experience at this hotel is typical of what you find at others in the chain, Holiday Inn has a winner going.

Clean, beds not too comfortable.
Don't pay in advance or use hiexpress unless you are certain you will arrive on day specified. Hotel will not modify reservations and charges full night's rate as "deposit".

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Linda B Great location for travel and a relaxing place to stay!
We ended up spending two nights at the Holiday Inn Express in Atascadero as we found it centrally located to the freeways. The hotel is clean, the beds are comfortable and the breakfasts are good. The only complaint was that the staff started removing the breakfast food too efficiently. The cups were removed first from the juice machine and the milk was taken away for the cereal--leaving later breakfast people who may have arrived 15 minutes before 'closing' without milk for the cereal or juice. Also the food 'ran out' about 30 min before the allotted time for breakfast. Quite annoying to say the least. For fun, make sure you try the new pancake machine--but go early as when we were there they also 'ran out' of mix.

Friendly, helpful staff. The breakfast room was kept clean and full even when crowded. The breakfast staff was friendly and greeted us each day. The rooms were clean and comfortable. This was our third time at this location and we will be back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sjamajee Beyond the standards you expect
At Holiday Inn Express, as a chain, you expect certain standards. It is very pleasant when staff and attention to details go beyond the expected standards. The reception was really nice and warmly welcoming, the wine tasting (at 6pm, after most wineries close) at the hotel was greatly relaxing and tasteful. For small things: at last a hotel where they still have crystal glasses in the room (instead of the ubiquitous plastic cups). As an IHG platinum member, I was showered with bottled water :-) The sunny atmosphere, the late afternoon light over the pool, the large and comfy rooms, it was all beyond good. Chances are higher for this to happen at relatively less crowded Holiday Inn´s where service (staff and attention) tend to be more personal(ised). Best HI express of my West-Coast Stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jem13 Very Nice Stay
We were in Atascadero for one night, and stayed at the Holiday Inn Express. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the room was spotless, and the mattresses were high quality and very comfortable. My only suggestion for improvement would be to increase the range of food for the hot breakfast, particularly to include a little more fresh fruit. Will stay there the next time we visit Atascadero again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Gold Card Member Mattress Pads are awful
Mattress pads were AWFUL - like cardboard. Would not lay flat, felt like plastic - too hot and uncomfortable. Have noticed these at other HIE locations, and don't like the trend!!! Won't come back - need to get a good night's sleep as a very basic necessity! Have spoken with local manager and he says that Corporate determines what mattress pads they use.

Great facility and great front desk help at check in. One little issue was that we showed up for breakfast and the eggs were gone and no one was around so we ended up going out for breakfast as we were in a hurry.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RLTt clean and quiet. All good
My 4th stay at this location, each time a very positive experience. Very friendly and professional staff, housekeeping does a wonderful job. Very quiet location, rooms well insulated from hwy 101,just across the street. Breakfast started early enough to allow a 6:15 am departure, the usual HI selection, always warm and well stocked.
Would recommend this location, even if I were working in San Luis Obisbo, I would travel the extra distance to stay at this HIE.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Baxtermint Five star hotel without the belhops
I know you won't believe it when I say that I have stayed in hotels costing three times a much that were not as clean or nice as this Holiday Inn Express!
I almost don't want to tell everyone how incredible this hotel is because once the secret is out, I won't ever be able to get a room here again.
Sure this sounds like a lot of baloney, but it's true.
For me and my family, there is no other place to stay when we are in Atascadero.

We had an excellent experience at this hotel. We were visiting relatives for several days over the holidays and it provided all the services and amenities we needed. It was close to restaurants, supermarkets, etc. The staff was very helpful with useful recommendations for all our needs. We intend to come back next time we visit Atascadero.

Have stayed here a couple of times. Would choose it more often if it was pet-friendly. Very friendly desk clerk at both check-in and check-out. Open complaint would be shower head. Could not get a very strong stream out of it for my morning shower. Did not get a chance to visit breakfast room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ted777 Great Stay After Long Day of Adventures
I was a tired and weary motorist on the 101 and was thankful to arrive at this hotel at the end of a very long day. Check-in was straightforward, and I received an amenity of bottled water. There was also cucumber flavored water in the lobby. My suite was nice, with a straightforward environmental control system, comfortable bed, sofa bed, living room area, office area with desk and lounge chair, wet bar with refrigerator/microwave/sink (I think there was a sink but was way too tired to remember all the fine details), and flat-screen HDTV with plenty of HD channels available. The bathroom in my suite was large. I like the flexible cancellation policy and the availability of the bonus points package. The suites face the highway, but I got plenty of sleep. It was plenty warm in the room even though it was a cold night. I missed the 6AM breakfast in the morning because I had to hit the road extremely early while the moon was still bright and high in the night sky, but I took a peek and saw that the breakfast area is nice and large. There is plenty of free parking, and there is a Starbucks nearby, just down the highway at the next exit north of the hotel. I had previously stayed in this hotel in 2011 and definitely plan to return when my travel plans take me to the Atascadero/Paso Robles/San Simeon area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by travelingdan956 Good Location and great breakfast !
Was great to be able to see sign from freeway. Stopped in late, gave my rewards card to the clerk, Victor, was asked what kind of room I would like and BAM I was in the room within ten minutes ! A friendly face can really make the difference to someone who has been in the car 5+ hours. Convienient, fast breakfast in the morining so I was able to get back on the road no problem. Its hard to find a good hotel off the road. Will stop by again!

The rooms are beautiful and the staff is very friendly. I especially liked the large fridge and microwave in the room.
Great stay! Thank you and I will be back!
