FABULOUS cust service - Malay at the breakfast bar

Pros: TV was great. Layout of the room. Towel display in room. Breakfast. Fridge in room clean and cold.
Cons: Small stain on sheet, and tissue under bed. But staff immediately brought me another sheet. A/C a little loud, but what can you do? :-)
Customer service was TOP NOTCH. From check-in - she was lovely and made me feel like I was a Queen. To the breakfast bar - Malay was AWESOME. Front desk staff in the am was inviting, warm and seemed genuinely interested in my enjoyment at the hotel. Very impressive. The "continental" breakfast was - wow! Fresh Fruit. Fresh made Waffles. Eggs. Sausage. Oatmeal. Out of yogurt, but toppings for yogurt and oatmeal. Juice. Heavenly. Lobby in excellent condition. Definitely worth having.

Pleasantly surprised

Pros: Cleanliness
I was expecting a dingy hotel due to the reviews, but since we knew we were getting in late and checking out early, it didn't matter too much if it wasn't that great, but I was surprised. The exterior looks very nice, the lobby well kept, clerk was nice, and we had no issues with our room. Everything was clean and quiet.

Awful breakfast and rude clerks

Pros: NOT MUCH
Cons: EVERYTHING BUT ESP EVENING CLERKS AND THE AWFUL BREAKFAST THEY SERVE,
Location: NOT AN INTERESTING PLACE - JUST PASSING THROUGH
Very disappointing facility. No elevators so we had to chug up a flight of stairs with our luggage. Clerk was rude on arrival. Morning clerk was quite nice. However, breakfast was the worst ever at a motel. Eggs like Styrofoam, Yucky yogurt and very poor choices. We will never stay there again and we travel that way to see family in northern CA quite often. NOTE: I HOPE YOU WILL ASK ME TO REVIEW THE VERY FRIENDLY & NICE, WITH GOOD FOOD, HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS IN CATHEDRAL CITY CA. THEY WILL GET A GOOD ONE.
