Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tim75 Poor Customer Service
My review is broken down into to separate and distinct reviews. We attended a baseball tournament and stayed at the HI Express for two nights with several teams staying at the hotel as it was a host hotel. The property was clean and seemed very orderly with many children present. It was a pleasure to stay at during the first evening.
During the second evening after a long day at the fields a large party to include a DJ was taking place in one of the meeting rooms. The music was blaring and could be felt in our room to the point of shaking it. I called and spoke with a representative at the front desk and asked that the music be turned down as we needed to get up early the next morning to continue with my son's tournament. I was told that a contract was signed by the group with the DJ, but that they would ask to have the base turned down. After an hour of listening to the music and it NOT BEING TURNED DOWN, I called the front desk and asked to for the phone number of the local police department. I informed the desk that the situation was ridiculous and asked if "my money was as good as the people's money playing the music". I was told it was, but they had a contract.
Approximately 20 minutes later a representative from HI Express arrived at my door to ask about my complaint. I informed the gentlemen with my displeasure and said I would let the police handle it. He informed me again that the party had a contract to have the DJ. I asked him to step into my room so he could feel the "thump" coming through the walls and he declined. I informed him that I had a contract as I had rented the room for two nights and asked him if my money was as good as theirs. He then informed me that there were kids running around on the floor above to insinuate why was I not complaining about that noise. I informed him that my party could sleep through that, but we could not sleep through the "thump" coming through the floor. The conversation was going nowhere due to the lack of empathy and concern of the HI Express representative. After some expletives given by me I closed the door and endured the thumping music for another hour. I did not call the police as I am sure that they had other pressing issues to take care of.
In closing, the hotel would have been a pleasure to stay at, if it had not been for the lack of concern and action by the hotel staff and its management. I will not stay at this particular HI Express in the future as there are several competitors in the immediate vicinity....Sincerely Tim G.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tammie2013 great service and clean
We will stay again, the staff was really friendly and helpful. The breakfast was the best we have ever had at a hotel, it was worth not going out for breakfast some place else. The room was very clean and comfortable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by April52 a lovely stay
After having driven 11 hours with 2-3 more still to go before reaching our destination, seeing the HI Express sign was a lovely beacon. Our checkin was quick and efficient. The concierge was most helpful in naming several restaurants, many within walking distance which was welcomed after sitting for so long in the car, where we could enjoy dinner. The room was spacious, clean, and restful. The breakfast a lovely unhurried experience with many choices. Thank you for a lovely respite.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Zakath Nice Place but unsafe for vehicles
I stayed here with my family. The Hotel was fine a little noisey due to weddings both nights we stayed. The draw back was multiple vehicle break ins . 2 cars at this hotel 5 at the hotel across the street . We felt very nervous and unsafe due to this. We ended up going home early because we could not park close to the hotel when we returned from dinner .

Hotel was a pleasant surprise. Very clean, spacious room. Comfortable beds and pillows. Loved that they had a washer / dryer close to the rooms to wash my son's baseball uniform. Breakfast was a good addition, and so glad it opened at 6am! Highly recommended overall!

Walking distance to shops and just off of Hwy 99. I was surprised that my room would be quite as it is very close to a freeway. I only meant to stay for one night but extended it to three more nights instead. There were several new staff being trained but their mentors were very patient.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Our Holiday Inn Experience
My family of five (husband, wife and 3 children) had the good fortune of staying at Holiday Inn Express in Elk Grove Ca for approximately six weeks while our house was being renovated. I have to say that our original impression of Holiday Inn was mixed and we were initially skeptical of how our stay would be. Well, we had an amazing and relaxing time at the hotel. The staff were exceedingly friendly, attentive and responsive to our questions, we loved the breakfast variety, the facility was clean and family friendly, and very comfortable. I would 100% recommend this property and look forward to lodging there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mtngal Great room and outstanding staff
This hotel was a pleasant surprise. I booked on-line, with the advantage that I was familiar with the area, but not this property. We were attending a memorial service and my husband left his suit pants at home. I forgot my hair spray. Both discoveries occurred an hour before we were to be at the church. Fortunately the hotel is in the midst of shopping and we located both items easily. Upon our arrival the young desk associate was very, very busy, but unflappable and gracious. The hotel appointments are appealing without being over the top. Breakfast offerings are more than adequate. Unless you're looking for a resort type property, you should be very pleased with this hotel.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Zack08 Not Pet Friendly AT ALL!!!
We found the room online at the website for Holiday Inn Express and said we were traveling with our pets. Booked our room making sure that the it was marked as having 2 pets. When we got to the hotel, we were then informed that there would be a 60 dollar charge per pet that was non-refundable. The only thing the staff would say is that it is company policy and they could not do anything. Apparently it was an increase from 30 dollars and the new rate took effect this summer. The website for Holiday Inn express does not mention anything about fee's. So I finally paid 120 dollars for my pets to stay while the room it's self was less than that. I will NEVER stay at a Holiday Inn Express again and probably not even at a Holiday Inn. Room was nice but not very easy to get to (confusing lay-out). Did not eat breakfast since I just wanted to leave.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GramBoFromLV Friendly atmosphere
The initial check in and greeting set the tone for the entire stay. Just the right amount of friendly without being overbearing.
I had some problems (user error) in printing my boarding pass, and the young lady on duty at check in courteously and efficiently solved the issue.
The room itself was clean, the bed was so comfortable, the linens were fresh and clean, the room was quiet and the stay was entirely enjoyable. Thanks for a great stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rosa808 Great service
The employees at this hotel have been so welcoming and accomodating. They all deserve some kind of "recognition" by the management of this hotel. Throughout my stay, they have not done anything to disappoint me and my family. In fact, each employee, who I have encountered, went beyond their 100% customer service expectation.
The breakfast buffet's great! Especially, when you're travelling with kids. My kids enjoyed their breakfast daily. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Although, adding some bright colors would be a bit more "welcoming"----but, this could just be my preference, since I do prefer "bright colors" :-)
Also, very close to the shopping center and restaurants and FREE PARKING!
I will definitely stay at this hotel again, if ever, I'm in Sacramento.
