Did not find the same satisfaction as the other people who stayed here. We were given a room 121 on the ground floor close to the pool and next the side entrance. We could hear anytime someone used the door and therefore did not sleep well. We could also hear the kid in the next room in the morning. I... More

Like others who have reviewed this hotel, I was hesitant about staying here. Escondido isn't the greatest area and this is only a 2 star hotel. Boy was I surprised! The room looked brand new and was very nice. All the amenties were in good shape and the bed was *really* comfortable! My girlfriend was impressed, so that says it... More

I was hesitant to stay at the Holiday Inn Express - but I shouln't have been. Great room (rented a suite so might be different with standard), almost like an apartment. Great bathroom - the showerhead was excellent, great water pressure, fluffy towels. The bed was firm, so depending on how you like it...Many many fluffy pillows were provided. Wonderful!... More

This is my home town and the first time I have had to stay in a hotel there, but this Holiday Inn Express had my reservation in order and ready for me when I checked in, plus it included a priority club upgrade to a nice suite without my asking for it - The Hotel hallways were being remodeled and...

Good value for the cost. Close to the Wild Animal Park which is the best thing about this hotel. The free breakfast is pretty good....nothing to get too excited about. Hotel staff workers are very nice. There are lots of fast food places near and a good shopping center across the street is convienent. Close to the freeway, (maybe too... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express at Escondido over the weekend of Aug 6th and it was great. The reception staff was polite and helpful. They always had a smile and seem eager to help. The suite was very big and had a tasteful decor. Everything was very clean- the beds, bathroom, kitchenette. The kitchenette was well stocked with... More

New, clean, with lots of amenities! Friendly staff, full breakfast, gym, and nice pool. Sits right next to an Elephant Bar Restaurant which you receive coupons for a free drink during "Happy Hour". What more could you ask for?
