Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Facility exceeds street appeal
The recent renovations make this facility very comfortable and up to date. The breakfast room is cramped and the selection was limited and not too appetizing.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jmd66 Nice remodel, pleasant staff but pricey
Hotel was still being remodeled but remodel was not an issue at all. Our room was nicely remodeled, impressed with options to plug in technology throughout room, modern decor. Staff was very pleasant; location is okay, but difficult to get onto busy street, and not walking distance to many places. Somewhat pricey - we needed to add an additional night, and even though we did so two weeks prior, the room rate went up significantly. Location and price would limit our chances of staying there again on our next visit to the area.

The carpet is clean, the room is clean, the bathroom is spotless. This is one superb facility for us to use as a place to sleep while visiting kids with no extra room and enjoying all the local area has to offer.

My overall experience was great. The hotel has just been renovated so it has a fresh new look to it. The rooms are clean and you always return to a neat and refreshed room.

We were never notified that the hotel was under a massive remodel. There were bare walls, wires hanging out of holes in the walls.
When we were trying to bring our luggage up on the cart provided the wheels were flat!
Couldn't believe I was charged a full rate the wade through the mess. I would have stayed elsewhere if I had known!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gracie16 comfortable bed and great service
i have been staying at this particular hotel since september 2012. i stay here while i am visiting my son at college. this hotel has looked great since the beginning and it is getting even better since they are remodeling it.. the staff has always been exceptionally friendly and caring since the first time i stayed here and they continue their great friendliness and service. the breakfast bar is amazing: hot eggs, different choices of breakfast meat, cereal and cold milk, orange juice and apple juice and water available and the coffee with different flavors is great, oh the cinnamon rolls are fantastic. and they do have fresh fruit and you can make your own pancakes and they have butter and jelley and fresh bread to make toast and bagels too.

Stayed here in June 2014. Room was immaculate. Very comfy. Hotel was being painted so the hallways were a bit messy. The cleaning staff did a fantastic job. They had a good eye for details.

Staff was rude. Turned away guest after room was paid for because she didn't have an extra $250 cash for a deposit. Again, the room was already 100% paid for.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BrookeW Nice room, small breakfast room, under construction during visit
The hotel was under construction in a few rooms, though it did not impact our stay at all. The breakfast room was the smallest of any hotel we have stayed in, and it made it difficult to get around and find a seat. Room was nice, and clean. Overall, for a quick place to sleep, I would stay at the hotel again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by peacedad Good staying in Redwood City
The hotel is adjacent to a major road, close to a Target store and Whole Foods Market, very convenient. It's a pretty basic hotel with a tiny lobby. It's under interior renovation while we're staying. Our room itself was finished, but the corridor area was still under construction. So we had a brand new room with modern look, as a designer myself, I like everything inside it. The bathroom is spacious with good illumination. The only thing missing is a pool and the parking stalls are pretty tight, but with a small site like this, they're understandable. I'd like to see more healthy options available from the breakfast menu. We have been having good experiences so far with Holiday Inn Express or Holiday Inn, we know what we'll get when we book a room from them. What we care most is the cleanness and we're happy with every single stay with them so far.

This place when remodel is complete will be Excelent. Explaining the 3 Star overal all experiance. Staff was professional, My room was ((BANGING)) Douple doors, open into a very nice suite, only thing missing was a Bar! Located near Down Town Redwood City and easy access to main roads and freeway. Holiday Inn Express is one of the only hotels i stay in when traveling on business and pleasure. Holiday Inn Redwood City is a great choice if you are in need of a place to stay in the peninsula..

This property was under construction and you hardly knew it. They didn't start till 10am and didn't work on the weekends.
It was located in a good area we could walk to Starbucks. Whole Foods was 2 blocks down the street. I would stay here again.

While the hotel is currently under renovation (so not a place for a daytime nap right now) the location is very convenient for the middle peninsula (Palo Alto/Stanford to San Mateo/Burlingame). The property will be very nice once the renovations are done. The staff is AWESOME. They are extra helpful and super willing to ensure they can make your stay as pleasant and peaceful as possible, from assisting with getting CalTrain tickets to dinner recommendations. Great staff!

Instead of using the internet, I actually called to set up our reservation. I believe it was Melinda that mentioned there was a renovation in progress and she informed us about the construction workers hours, etc. It was nice knowing that prior to our arrival and it truly was never a problem and we were not disturbed in any way.
The room was clean, comfortable and was exactly what we needed during our time in the San Carlos area. I'm sure the new rooms will look fabulous and fresh.

The two ladies who served our breakfasts and worked very hard carrying all the goods from second floor during renovation deserve FIVE STARS! We all "camped out" in room 301 and had tasty food, lacking nothing, Thank You, Holiday Inn Express, for your great training program to make happy and gracious employees for us to enjoy!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Chip Oatly Full price?
Paid full price while remodel was going on. Weekend rate was cheaper than Monday because they must of had some special local event but was my room better Monday than Saturday/Sunday? NO! Limited supply of juices for breakfast in their makeshift gym/dining area. HIE, if you are going to have ugly construction going on please disclose that upon booking and maybe give a discount rate. Not happy here.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Not a whole lot of choices: fine, but pricey!
We came here because we didn't like another motel, not realizing that the properties are right next door to each other and so both are awkward to get into (with solid medians, traffic flow, and such). This is a bit nicer with better linens, a refrigerator and microwave in-room, but the breakfast options are still middle-of-the-road, and with the hotel under construction, there isn't a proper lobby or breakfast room, some of the covered parking is taken up by construction materials, things like that. Those are inconveniences, but not a deal-breaker. As the manager explained to me, there is a dearth of hotel rooms between San Francisco and Silicon Valley, which raises the prices of all rooms. It was the price of this which got us: as much as we paid recently for a night at one of the premier resort properties in Hawaii!
Suggestions for breakfast: healthier options like oatmeal, prepared fresh fruit, good to-go items like fruit bars, even some of the fresh bread the San Francisco area is known for.
Pluses: The people we met were great and eager to be helpful, all were friendly.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by KPRCP Nice room but very pricey
The hotel was under construction so there was no front desk but the people were nice and the room was clean and comfortable. I was just shocked at how much it cost to stay there. It is not a great area so I don't understand why it cost so much to stay there!

I stayed for 10 days, room was easy for me to use computer. The best part was the staff. They really were nice to be around, esp. the person in charge of the food room. Nice choices for breakfast.
I will return when I come back to Redwood City.

Staff was great. Very helpful. Room was too expensive but everything is like that in south San Francisco. Water pressure was horrible. Hated taking a shower. Bed and pillows were fabulous and location was great for my colleague who had to pick me up everyday. Hard to see this place from the road but they did seem to have enough parking.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AudreyO Mostly Wonderful
Our disappointment came when at 9:30 am we had a note under our door that due to our DO NOT DISTURB sign being on the door we forfeited room cleaning for the day. In most places the housekeeping staff makes two sweeps past the room. Here they made one sweep, as we were preparing to leave for the day and it was only 9:30am. Of course this now meant I had to find her to ask for towels and toilet paper for our room.
Other than that, we loved our stay at this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Paul19 A nice hotel with a great staff; but, it is pricey
Okay, it's in the bay area, so I expect to pay high prices, but for the same money, I stayed at a full service Marrriott with all the benefits just a week before. That being said, it is a clean hotel and is a typical Holiday Inn Express. The cleaner went above and beyond, clearly taking pride in her (I assume) work. Each evening when I arrived at the room there was a towel folded in to some sort of origami creation. It was a nice touch, and made me notice the other touches she put on the room. I would stay there again, no question, but I would check availability at the fancier hotels in the area to see if they are price competitive.
