Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Will_123 not recommended
As we arrive at the hotel, we noticed a strange odor at the front door (possibly cat poop?). At the same time, there are intense police activities going on at the adjacent motel, six police cars arrived one after another, not sure what's going on.
After checking in, as we walked through the ground level to get to our room, we noticed doors were left open in some rooms and the carpets appear to be worn and dirty. Public restrooms are smelly as we walked by.
As we go out for dinner, a car with four guys drove up and parked in the front, they do not appear to be guests of this hotel, possibly for the adjacent motel.
On a positive note, the hotel receptionist was friendly. Our room on the third floor was decent. Overall, I've stayed at many holiday Inn Express locations and I'm usually happy with them, but this is the one I won't recommend.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SoCalBob Good, but different from most H.I. Express locations
The hotel is quite nice, and very well maintained. The room and bathroom was spotless, the staff was friendly and efficient, and parking was more than ample.
The only off-putting things were having a very limited number of access points to the upstairs rooms - and the fact that all the rooms had outside doors. The setup is more like a motel than a hotel... which also made the noise of people leaving in the morning a bit too noticeable.
Despite those things, tough, the hotel is a good one, as was the overall experience.

You can always rely on Holiday Inn Express to provide clean and comfortable rooms at a reasonable price. The complimentary breakfast if satisfactory, though the eggs and bacon seemed fake and were not very good. Very friendly staff, easy access off freeway.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KeeKeo Comfy beds, shower with pressure! Nice and cozy.
We were pleased with our stay! Like I mentioned before, the front desk staff were very pleasant and helpful. The hot coffee and cookies were wonderful! We enjoyed our stay. Slept well, and had a nice breakfast too! Thanks Holiday Inn Express Simi Valley!

When you make reservations at this hotel, do not expect them to be available when you arrive or expect staff to be concern that your reservation are not what you originally made.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AZDR Always first choice
We stay here frequently because of the accommodations and the location. It's easy on and off the freeway. Even though it's close to the freeway the rooms are soundproof enough that the noise doesn't bother us. The Holiday Inn is doing some renovations and the upgrade is very nice.

Our company relocated myself and some of my colleagues to Simi Valley and the Holiday Inn Express has accommodated our every need. Julia and Amanda have been, both very professional and extremely helpful. The housekeeping staff have been sensitive to our work schedules. I highly recommend this Holiday Inn Express!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by The Rocker 909 Newly remodeled rooms, quiet, clean and comfortable- excellent staff
I stayed in a newly remodeled room which was very well done. It was clean and comfortable. Clear HDTV, fast internet, and quiet. Located just off the 118 Freeway but far enough away that there was no freeway noise. Located next to a few dining establishments (walking distance) and a grocery store across the street with quality fruits and veggies. The staff was very professional and the service was very good. The negative....the jacuzzi tub had a minor leak, nothing to cry about, and I was rewarded bonus points or another room. The leak was minor and very little, so I kept the room and was happy to get many free bonus points. I would definitely stay in this Hinn again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by FloridaTraveler Overall, Just OK
This is an old style hotel where all rooms are accessed from the outside, some from the court yard surrounding the pool and all others facing the parking areas. HIE is in the process of renovating the hotel. Our room was updated and was very nice. But that is the end of the best news! There are security doors that should control access to all the stairs for the second floor and the pool court yard but the contractors had most of the doors propped open. There was a lot of noise and strange people around even after working hours. And, in the morning, there were a number of people in the breakfast area that looked to be homeless and did not belong there. Security was a major concern for us at this hotel. It was obvious to us that HIE is trying to totally upgrade the property but we doubt that it will ever meet what we have come to expect from the HIE brand. The staff was very nice but our other concerns do not allow us to recommend this location.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by WaterPoloDad Not bad for the only room we could find
If I had a choice I would stay elsewhere. The bed was comfortable but that's about it. The A/C was turned down to 62 but it was still warm in the room. The lights for the bathroom are located in the bed area?? The breakfast was Blah!! Plus this was one of the newly renovated rooms!! It worked for a only choice but hopefully never again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by doc158 Pleasant, even with construction
This Holiday Inn Express has a charming atmosphere and the facility is very unique compared to other Holiday Inn Expresses. The layout of the building is very different and delectable compared to all of the new Expresses that tend to be monotonous.
The room was well kept and had a view facing the outdoor pool. All staff members from the front desk to cleaning service were very nice and polite. Even the construction crew were very polite and considerate.
The hotel is right off the highway, and is close to many restaurants in Simi Valley.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ras1952 Great location for visiting our family
I did not mark the ratings correctly on my first eval, only checked the first box which I found out too late was rated poor, this is not the case, for we enjoy this hotel everytime we visit our two daughters and four grandchildren living in the area.
We espeically like the second floor west rooms where the front door opens up to the open pool area and the window to the parking lot where we can get some fresh air.
I see during this visit, you are starting some upgrades to the property which is due.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ras1952 Great location for us
Your hotel is near our two daughters and grandchildren, we look forward to staying at your hotel every time we come to visit. We espeically like to reserve the second floor west rooms where the door opens up to the open pool area and the window to the parking lot, we can get fresh air to breese through the room.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JLBSantaC Clean, comfortable but noisy
We (couple and teenage son) stayed two nights as we were in town for a wedding. Our room was clean and comfortable but there was inadequate sound proofing. We could hear our neighbors, even at just normal conversation levels and the footsteps (which sounded like stomping and went on until about midnight) in the room above us. The ironing board was shabby - it was wobbly and the cover was stained. The facility didn't feel like a hotel to me, it felt too big, like an apartment complex that was being converted. There seemed to be a few rooms rented for parties. Staffed hosed down of area outside of lobby and in parking lot both days - this really should not be a cleaning practice in CA considering our water issues. The staff was really friendly and professional. The lobby and breakfast room were clean and nice.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by jstar510 Too Expensive
Too expensive for the value. Rooms are totally outdated. Breakfast was rather poor, although the service staff member was awesome - very attentive and helpful. For the price, I could have stayed at a hotel in Las Vegas... On a Sunday night, given that the rooms are completely outdated, the cost should have been much lower. Unfortunately, we were in town on short notice for a funeral and I've stayed at other Holiday Inn Expresses without any issues, so I thought this stay would be no different. Truly, HIE should look at lowering the cost until they at least finish their renovations.
