Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by RenoFred Room confort
With the new controls for the air conditioner, you now do NOT have the option of having the fan run in low speed whenever the air conditioning is not running. When the air conditioning turns off, the fan stops running. This would be acceptable if the guest was not trying to mask the noise from the guest above who laughed and talked to 2:00 am. In addition, the TV sound was limited to 40%, which was to low when the AC was running on it's only speed HIGH, but we could still hear the people above us.
Additionally, I was not recognized as a Priority Club Member, and the front desk persons actions were mostly indifferent.

We stayed in a different hotel every night of our stay while in California. Your location was one of the best. Keep up the good work!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RedSled First time "Happy Hour."
As a PCR Platinum member, I stay at many different IHG properties in the course of a year. There are actually very few properties that do not meet my level of expectations. This property exceeded my expectations, as it is the first HIE where I have stayed that has provided a happy hour for their guests to enjoy. My husband and I were able to enjoy some appetizers and a glass of beer or wine after a long day on the road. It was nice being able to drop our luggage in the room and kick back without needing to leave the hotel to find a restaurant.
My husband also liked the fact that fresh cookies seemed to always be available. Most HIE's put fresh cookies out around 7:00 PM, and when they are gone, they are gone.
Good job Livermore.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 3rn35t Filthy but decent location seems safe
This place seemed unsanitary and dirty. There was a green piece of mucous dried on the remote, which looked like it hadn't been wiped down in several weeks. This should be a fundamental requirement. It left me wondering if this location even changes the linen, or ever washes the linen, towels or even vacuums the carpet. I have been a gold and platinum priority member. I recommend holiday inn express from personal experience and have chosen to stay at HIE locations in at least 10 different states. As a district manager, market manager and field training manager for over 10 years I can stay anywhere, but choose HIE for their always reliable WIFI and clean standards of their properties. This is NOT the standard here. I need to find an alternate HIE in this area for future, monthly, business trips in this area or a competitor for those 12 stays minimum per year.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by David2000 What a quite location. Great....
Although close to the freeway it was a quite location which ensured a good night's sleep. The hotel offered a friendly check in and Priority Club Membership was recognised. The room was clean and of a high standard with a large 42" TV for entertainment. Although a DVD player was available in the room a few HBO movie channels would have been welcome. The breakfast was well stocked with all the items you would expect at the Express breakfast and was available earlier than posted. The hotel advertised a complimentary shuttle service and although we did not use this downtown Livermore has a large selection of bars and restaurants which could be worth visiting.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bernice93 Convenient to Fwy, easy to find and EXCELLENT conditions
I am hooked on Holiday Inn Express - breakfasts included with nominal (current) Inn rates. AND MOST LET ME TAKE MY 14lb dog in with me (sometimes a fee). I have my priority card with me at all times and use it when I can. I am saving up my priority points for a stay on the California Central Coast the summer of 2013 and of course in a Holiday Inn Express (Which often denotes my destination)

As a business traveler this has been one of my worst hotel experiences to date. First off, I booked online and realized I would be staying in a handicap accessible room, which is fine, but the adjustable shower head never worked properly so I had to shower with the water spraying my crotch. It did have the flexible hose so I could remove the shower but this always proves difficult for someone 6'4". Secondly, the room was really out of date with the other competitor hotels in the area. I booked this location out of convenience to the 580 corridor but would gladly stay in a less convenient area for any return trips. The bed and pillows were ok, but the blinds were difficult to pull together enough to block out incoming light. At 6:30 am the trash truck arrived to dump the dumpster outside my window, which woke me early. The cleaning gals began banging on my door at 8 am as I was in the shower. I normally only put out the do not disturb sign if I am going to be in my room until after 10am and never had this happen this early before. Lastly, I went down for breakfast at 9 am and they had shut it down...don't know the specific policy at this location but all other hotels in the range that offer free breakfast are usually open untill 10am.
