4 day site seeing and NFL football game.
My son and I had a great stay at Holiday Inn Golden Gateway. Our room was fantastic, fridge, safe, air, huge tv, beds clean and comfy, bathroom clean, including towels and bath robes. Breakfast buffet was excellent, food and service. Great location, tons of great restaurants and shops. We walked all over day and night feeling very safe. 30 min walk to the bart, also safe day and night. Hotel personnel very helpful and friendly. I would definitely stay at this hotel again!! Thank you for a wonderful stay. David Livingston

Just what you have paid for. Overall considering the value, it's a good choice for budget. Just the washroom vent system doesn't seems to work well. Other than that, everything is fine.

It was ok.
Overall the stay was good. My family and I stayed for 2 nights. I did call the front desk on our 2nd day for some toiletries but the guy was rude and quick to get me off the phone, and they never brought me what i requested.

Poor 2.0
Terrible experience! I arrive at property to check in with all the requirements for the check in, current (CA) driver license/Id, credit/debit card or cash for deposit. Well apparently what i had was not enough for them. I had plenty of funds on card, i had cash on me to cover deposit. Apparently they didnt like that my credit card had the words debit written on my card. I asked why just a month & a half ago when i had booked room on separate occasion there was no problem then even tho it was same card. They replied that their policy had just changed. They absolutley would not budge from there decision. They offered to cancel room for me at which i accepted. They were acting as if they could do what they wanted, treat people how they wanted with no worry in the world. It was the worst hotel check in i have ever experienced along with the most rude condencending staff/front desk. Ive had much better service from

Poor 2.0
Horrible after i had read all the details where it said that you can use a Debit or Credit card even cash. I make the reservation with my debit and get charge immediately, so when i went to check in the guy in the reception told me that if i dont have a credit card i can NOT check in. So he ask me to call so they can cancell the reservation en rwfund my money. which is going to be reimburse in 7 days ( ans what if i sobt have more money, i guess i had to sleep on the street. No nice 😤

Pictures can be deceiving in regards to size
Room was a little smaller than expected but it was a great stay regardless.
