Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Coloradocheri Helpful staff
The staff was friendly & helpful. The desk clerk gave dinner recommendations & we loved the choice from those recommendations-spaghetti Eddies. She also made sure there was cereal & coffee out for me right at 6 so I could have a bite before doing the Run2thetop.
No complaints. It was a pleasant stay, in a clean, well appointed room.

My wife and I have stayed here 3 times now. We have a Son that goes to La Verne and this hotel is just down the street. Folks at this Holiday Inn treat us like family and always welcome us when we arrive. The rooms are cleans and bright with lots of room and plenty of restaurants around. I agree with the other folks comments, you can't go wrong staying at this location.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GF47 First time at HIE San Dimas
This was the first time staying at the hotel and will not hesitate to stay there again when in the area. The hotel grounds are in great condition and well maintained. The room I was upgraded to was quite large considering it had 2 beds in it. The bed was very comfortable and I was able to find one of the 4 pillows on the bed to my liking.
Breakfast was really no better or worse than most HIE properties, but the attendent working made sure the coffee pots were full and the hot food was well stocked.
Front desk service was a little slow checking in, but considering they were installing new computers and had to do everything manually, it was understandable, and they were apologetic for the delay. Check out was easy, and the clerk was kind enough to offer me another bottle of water for the road. A first for me at checkout and very thoughtful. Overall a great stay at a great hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chargerchick very nice
We stayed here for the World Series of Softball. We played in West Covina, and this hotel was only a 10 min drive to the fields. It was very peaceful and well kept. It was quiet and the rooms were very clean and the staff all were very accomdating. I am very happy that we got to stay here and I will definitely recommend this hotel. It's located very close to a lot of different places to eat within walking distance.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Debbiesa Nice Surroundings, great Landscape, Peaceful
It is quiet yet close to everything. Nice pool and surrounding landscape makes it feel like home.
Just wish check out was quicker, and the back gate was secure. It was broken so anyone could have walked in without a key.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ER24 Over priced room with a TV/remote that doesn't work properly!
The TV did not turn on the night we arrived. We arrived in our room too late to call the front desk, so I went to bed in silence. The night shift consisted of a one-man team; to deal with the registration desk, telephone calls, and room service all in one! So i felt badly for the poor girl that was running around addressing all the calls from guests, and I was too tired at that point to have her come into my room to address the TV issue. I reported the TV issue that morning and was informed there was a trick to turning it on. I finally got the TV to work however, now the remote was giving me problems. I don't know if it needed batteries but changing the channels was a major challenge! For the amount of money that I paid for my stay, it should have definately had a working TV/remote. I reported the issue at check-out and hopefully they resolved the issue for the next guest! Definately an over priced rate for the location of the hotel, and for a room without a working TV/remote.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pinercrest Great Staff!!
This is our third (maybe fourth?) time staying at the Holiday Inn Express in San Dimas - and each time the experience has been wonderful. The staff is very friendly (especially Sam at the front desk!!) and the housekeeping is great. The grounds are kept clean, the breakfast has many options - but above all else, the staff makes the difference. We will most definitely be back next summer for our week visit with family! Look forward to seeing Sam's smile behind the desk.... Thanks!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Olds442 Super hotel in great location
This is a great place to stay if you have business or a trip to the Pasadena - Pomona corridor. I had business in Irwindale and this was a perfect spot. The hotel is in a nice area with plenty of restaurants to choose from. Rooms are nice, clean and spacious. You can't go wrong here.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by marie68 Poor experience with employees and services
We checked in at the San Dimas Holiday In Express on 6/12/13. After our stay experience, I cancelled our return reservation for 6/16/13.
The refrigerator door in the room was broke so we could not keep our bottle water cold for our next day long trip. The carpet had many small and large stains.
When we checked out, I notified the two reception employees of the above problems with the room. They both started to laugh and stated that they knew about the refrigerator door.
During breakfast the coffee cream carafe was empty so I asked an employee for some cream. When I poured the new cream into my coffee cup it turned into cuds.
In addition, it took me more that a half of hour to try to cancel my return reservation. When I tried to call the San Dimas Holiday Inn Express' reception number listed on my bill, it kept on saying that the mail boxe was full. I tried at least for a half of a hour and dialing the number at least a dozen of times. In addition, I could not cancel this reservation on line. It gave me an unavailable page message. Two of the communication systems for the Holiday Inn did not work. I had to search the Holiday Inn's toll free number in order to cancel my reservation. This was done in the morning. At 4:36 pm that evening, I received an e-mail welcoming me back to the San Dimas hotel. Again, I called the Holiday Inn free number to make sure that my reservation was cancelled. Even though I had a confimation cancellation number, I did not trust the system or employees. I did not want to be charged for another stay.
To add, this was our most expensive hotel reservation for our two and half weeks vacation. The San Dimas hotel did not give military discount.
I spent another half of a hour around 11:00 am to noon today trying to file this review. Again, the website stated that the page was unavailable.
Thank you for looking into this complaint. Marie

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bill3147 Hostess in the breakfast area
I only travel to California four times a year, I had some Heath issues and my Dr. told me only decaf coffee from now on. Every time I go to this property this young lady remembers me and that I can only drink decaf. My hats off to her and entire staff at this motel....they are truly top notch.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by janabdancing Long Term Stay after house flood
Our house flooded and we had to find a place to stay with our two young children. San Dimas Holiday Inn was a great place to stay! We were there for about 45 days and the staff there were wonderful. Our kids felt like we were on vacation. We stayed in the one bedroom suite with kitchenette. We had breakfast every morning in the breakfast area. My only complaint is that the pool is not heated and it was too cold for my husband and I to go in. The kids managed to go in, but it was pretty cold.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rufus425 Good size of the room, beds comfortable and queit
The hotel and staff were great. The room size and design was great. We were able to put our children to sleep in the beds and then move into the front room that was seperated enough from the beds in the back so we could relax and not wake them up. Everything was really good.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HelloDottie Comfortable Bed/Great Service
I was recognized as a Priority Club Member which I appreciated. I didn't like the area where my room was going to be and was immediately accommodated to an area that was more suitable for me. The staff was very pleasant and willing to help in any situation.
The bed and pillows were very comfortable, and my room was kept up properly everyday.
There were a couple things that I felt were not to standard. One was the carpet in my room was grossly stained which made the rest of the room seem dirty.The property manager either needs to change out the carpets or have them steam cleaned and disinfected. The other thing was security. I didn't feel all that safe, because of gated entrances to the rooms. I prefer only the main entrance to the rooms.
San Dimas is beautiful and the location was great.

First floor room, great amentities and pool. Room smelled a bit musty as well as the pillows and sheets. Nothing a little aquirt of febreeze wouldn't fix.
