Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Andy85B Great for business travel
I stayed there for a few days and and a decent experience. The staff was amazing and the rooms were typical of any business class hotel. Personally, I need a good gym and this one worked for me. There was enough cardio and weight equipment to fit my needs. Just like a lot of other business class hotels, they have a "Manager Reception" on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The free snacks were fine. The only complaint I have is the beer. Yes, the beer is free and its a good representation of the local brewers in the area. But it has to be poured into a small plastic cup that is probably only 6 oz. When someone decides to have a drink, who only has 6 oz. of beer? I really think that if they are going to offer it, they shouldn't tease you with only half a beer. You can go back and get more but its just a pain. I wish I could give the hotel 9.5/10 but I can't. I know it sounds petty, but these little details are the ones that bother me the most.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SLOblessed Heavenly place to stay
I highly recommend this hotel! It should be rated a Five-Star Hotel just because of the staff themselves. A friendly, accommodating and professional staff goes a long way, and the staff here at the Holiday Inn Express in Atascadero went beyond the call of duty to make my stay enjoyable, affordable and pleasant. I stayed for 2 full weeks due to a sudden transfer and relocation from the San Francisco Bay Area. It was a very difficult and stressful time for me, and everyone including Destiny, Heidi, Jacob, Stephanie, Maggie, Amber, Jessica, Amar and Victor performed outstanding. Their sincerity, genuineness and compassion far exceeded my expectations from people I didn't even know. I felt blessed to be there, and they all represented the San Luis Obispo area with dignity and supreme friendliness. After 2 weeks, I practically felt as if they were family. I would like to extend my gratefulness and warmest thanks to each and everyone of them for welcoming me to my new home here in San Luis Obispo, especially Destiny for her kindness and Stephanie for making my stay affordable; thank you!
The hotel itself was lovely, especially for a Holiday Inn. This hotel would give any Upscale Hotel a run for their money. As a matter of fact, I would consider this Holiday Inn in Atascadero upscale.
So if you're looking for a place to rest your head during your travels at a wonderfully quiet atmosphere with an extraordinary staff, this place is for you.
P.S. Their housekeeping department did a wonderful job as well.
May God Bless you all.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Marc10 Part II of a 2-Week Vacation
My family and I needed a central location close to mid-California. HIE & Suites in Atascadero seemed like the perfect location. We take our family on vacation sometimes twice a year. To our surprise, this hotel is a very attractive and very clean hotel. Our overall experience was exceptional. The staff was great are willing to fully support your needs. We stayed in a family suite and it is larger than the average suites at a very affordable rate. We would highly recommend this hotel to families and we'll be a returning guests if in the area again. Thank you HIE & Suites of Atascadero for a great accommodation. Keep up the positive attitude.

I travel quite extensively for work and this is by FAR the best hotel that I have found within a corporate budget on the Central Coast. The staff at HIE in Atascadero is top notch and ALWAYS do EVERYTING within their power to make my time at their property another great stay. Hey, what other hotel have you ever stayed at where the Breakfast Staff actually greet you, is willing to refill your Breakfast beverage of choice and wish you well for the day ahead? This is the only one I have found. Need I say more?

We spent two nights at this property for a wedding. The staff could not have been more helpful with directions. The property is clean and comfortable and I would stay here again! It is a great location right off the freeway and is conveniently located near San Luis Obispo and also Paso Robles..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by akaritavil EXCELLENT.. EXCELLENT and Excellent.
What a wonderful 3 day stay we had in Atascadero. We have stayed in many Holiday Inn Express's and always been satisfied with them. This one surpasses all that we have been in. All the staff that we engaged with from the front desk to the breakfast hostess went way beyond great service. We were provided excellent information on things to do, see or try in and around Atascadero and other areas of the central coast. I think that Holiday Inn Corporation should use them as an example of providing exemplorary service. At the end of our stay we actually felt like we were going to miss them :) Thanks again to ALL of the staff in Atascadero. We look forward to visiting you again soon. I tried to upload some photos that we took around the area but for some reason they wouldn't upload.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clickstop What a find!
What a find! By far, this the best Holiday Inn Express we've ever had the pleasure of booking. From the moment you enter the lovely, well decorated reception area, you are welcomed with helpful, courteous personnel and fresh baked cookies. The rooms are contemporary and spotless, with white double sheeted bedding and a firm, comfortable mattress. Other perks are free breakfast buffet, internet access, a gym, outdoor pool and jacuzzi tub + a USA Today newspaper. Don't miss their complimentary wine and cheese reception on Saturdays. The only criticism would be that the walls/floors could use more insulation.

We went zip-lining in Santa Margarita and our stay at the Holiday Inn Express, Atascadero was very convenient, about 15-20 minutes away. The property is newer, clean and well maintained the staff is friendly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JHSacto HI-Express Atascadero
This is a great property, a newly-remodeled, very comfortable hotel.
It's cleaner than many of the other recently re-branded HI Express hotels, and the staff is cheerful, very competent, and great with details!
It's very close to the burgeoning Paso Robles wine industry, and they even offer Happy Hour beer- and wine-tasting in the lounge area.
The only quibbles I might make would be: 1) the too-soft water. It's over-treated and this makes it very difficult to rinse clean. It feels too slippery; and 2) the lack of any HD TV channels. They have none. Everything is SD and expanded to fill the wide-screen TVs. At least they leave them unlocked so you can adjust the picture ratio and get rid of the stretched shoulders!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CFM364 Fantastic Staff!
The staff at the Holiday Inn Express Atascadero is exceptional.
Following our arrival, we enjoyed the complimentary wine and beer hour in the hotel dining room. Not only was the woman pouring the wine and beer very knowledgeable about the wineries and breweries in the area, she had a wealth of information on the entire county. She recommended events to attend, restaurants to try and wineries and breweries to visit. She was a walking Chamber of Commerce and so friendly and enjoyable.
The front desk staff was also very friendly, helpful and informative. In a time where customer service often seems to be very poor, the staff at this Holiday Inn Express made it a priority.
We had a wonderful stay thanks to the staff and recommend this hotel without hesitation.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by trinade Pleasant Stay
My stay was pleasant but nothing out of the ordinary. What should be expected...very clean, very helpful. Breakfast was terribly boring! I stayed 3 days...same food every morning. (except one day sausage patty, next paper thin beacon, then sausage patty again) I arrived just 10 -15 mins after food was served....room temp to luck warm. No waffles, pancakes, berries of any kind. Just bananas and apples. I will look further before staying again...but ok.

This is my second visit to HIE Atascadero within 6 months and I was as happy with my return visit as my first. The friendly staff,
clean room, awesome choices for breakfast makes this a place you want to stay. I have family that lives in Atascadero and it is nice to be able to visit and hang out, and then have a great rest in the comfortable beds which gives everyone their own privacy. You wake refreshed, do your workout, have a great breakfast, and ready for more adventure. I am very particular where I stay and wouldn't think twice to return for another visit here.

We were greeted with the news we had been upgraded from a King room to a King suite. The hotel is very clean and relatively new. The staff were wonderful and recommended a great restaurant for dinner. We would definitely stay at this hotel again. Only con: Priority club recognition was a bottle of water.

The one thing that I really enjoyed on my stay at the HIE Atascadero was the room. Beds were very comfy and the restroom was very nicely organized and cleaned. It felt as if I was at home. I am sure that is what all guest like to feel while away from home, so HIE Atascadero fulfilled that on my stay. Breakfast was also very hot and delicious. I was given many choices to choose from; it felt as if I was at a breakfast buffet. The pool area was very relaxing, and the water felt amazing. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Thank you HIE Atascadero for making my stay enjoyable.

Couldn't be happier about our recent stay. Spottlessly clean, lots of pillows, and an army of workers keeping the breakfast buffet well-stocked! And the staff was extremely helpful in locating the camera case I had left behind.

Picked up a suite for Valentines day for my wife and I recently at this location. My wife and son played in the pool all afternoon while I finished up my work day. When I arrived at the hotel, they had a beer and wine tasting menu set up. Got to taste some local brews I hadn't tried, and set up the evening to be great.
Got a good nights sleep, woke up to high pressured showers and a HUGE breakfast laid out. All in all, great hotel, friendly and knowledgeable staff, and a great night. Highly recommended.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ryand43 5 Stars, great rooms and staff
I do quite a bit of traveling every year. I always looking forward to visiting family on the Central Coast and my stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Atascadero, CA. The facility is always impeccably clean from the parking lot to the rooms. The beds are comfortable and provide the sanctuary I need to retreat to after spending time with the in-laws. The staff is very welcoming and always appear to be upbeat. I enjoy the lounge area and the choices I have in the morning for breakfast. They've provided the best price rates in the past and now that I've been there a few times, I don't even check the competitors rates. I highly recommend this hotel, thank you for the pleasant stay and see you soon.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Koko07 Shining Example of a Great Express Hotel
My husband and I stayed here during our trip to California and let me just say this hotel beats out any of the other Express hotels we stayed at. Not only do they have warm cookies at checkin but they recognized out Priority Club Status and we were just the basic Club Members. We felt very invited and when we got to our king room it was spotless!!!
We were worried about the noise possibly on the first floor but those rooms seemed to be soundproof. However we did here the occasional door shuts of nearby neighbors.
The breakfast in the morning was more than what we expected..eggs, bacon, cinnamon rolls, yogurt, oatmeal, breads etc. They ran out of biscuits and gravy when we got to that part of the meal but by the time i went to alert the staff, she was already on her way out with more!!!
Definitely stay at this hotel if you are visiting the area! They have a greatly managed team, clean rooms, and free breakfast! :)

This was the worst for the money we have ever had for a Holiday Inn express. There was no breakfast meat, very little gravey very little eggs. Only one person working the breakfast on a weekend. We had the do not distube sign out I was standing within 2 feet of the door the maid knocked one time and opened the door before I could even answer the door not acceptable. The noise was on going all night from the road really not the staffs fault. The staff was very friendly.
Will not stay at this one again unless we are totally exhaused.

Asked for a quiet suite and was put on the first floor next to the elevator and breakfast area. On the second morning we showered with COLD water.... hot water heaters were down. Reserved and paid for 3 nights in advance. On the 2nd afternoon while napping staff LOUDLY & repeatedly banged on the door, yes we had the do not disturb sign up, asking if we were staying a 3rd night. We try to eat healthy.... they were out of oatmeal.......... no breakfast for us.
