Verified Reviews of Holiday Inn Express & Suites Yosemite Park Area

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Ok, many downsides, however, I like the remodel."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Back door was never locked, didn't need my key to open it. True safety hazard and a big no no for me. Had to ask repeatedly for xtra coffee and towels, you would have thought they were made of gold.

"Need a receipt."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
I was told when I checked out that the property could not provide me with the receipt and it would have to come from the company that booked the room. To date, I have received nothing and I really need the paid receipt to turn in to our fiscal department. I will gladly complete a review when I have my receipt.

29-Feb-2020 Verified Review, stayed from Tue Feb 25 to Wed Feb 26 2020 at a $80.38 average nightly rate.
"Freeway noise was too loud."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
We needed a hotel just for the night in transit to an early morning event. Hotel looked nice and was comfortable. Rooms were large. Hotel was clean. Location was great. Parking was plentiful. Breakfast was very good. Beds were super comfortable. I would have given the hotel a 4.5 if ONLY the hotel had invested in sound proofing the rooms from the freeway noise. I hardly got any sleep due to the freeway noise. I would also suggest a thicker door as the people in the hall was very loud in the morning.
