As a Holiday Inn property, this is about par for the course. The room was a little rough around the edges -- I've definitely seen nicer bathrooms in Holiday Inn properties, and like many other reviewers, I was annoyed with the shower curtain "situation". Stay in a room, you'll understand. Parking was a bit cramped, too (the spaces are pretty... More

This is a nice, clean hotel near Route 8. There is a pool, and the claim is that it is heated, but the heating seemed marginal to me. Also, there was no supply of towels on the evening I tried to use the pool, and I just didn't feel up to going to the front desk. The room was clean... More

This hotel was a great find - reasonable price, free parking, good quality rooms and excellent location. The service was above your average Holiday Inn, as every staff member we interacted with has shown professionalism and friendliness. The parking is a bit odd, as you have to drive up a mini hill to drive to the property, and parking spots... More

The elevator, hallway and my room smell of smoke. My room has another unpleasant odor that I can't place....maybe a combination of old smoke and mildew. There is little parking. Although it is tastefully decorated with a large bed and friendly staff. Although the front desk clerk did tell me that people from Oregon seemed really "country" and wanted to... More

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay. Unfortunately, even as a 100% smoke free property, we still see people that decide to smoke in the rooms. When we do catch someone smoking in the room, we do ask that guest to leave and charge them a $500... More

We had a really nice time in La Mesa. We went to the little pool and worked out in the fitness center. We had a very nice large suite thanks to The manager Ulysis. We took a fun ride on the trolly into the Seaport village. The hotel is close to a 711 store, and I bought delicious hot coffee... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights en route to another California destination. Upon entry to the room, there was an odor. Not your typical clean hotel smell, but maybe a smoking cover-up or like someone had cooked a meal that had seeped into the walls. I couldn't put my finger on it, but it was unpleasant. Other...

Our king bed room was clean and up to date with a very comfortable bed and great shower. We actually overslept the first night because the curtains kept the room so dark (and it was quiet). We will be back the next time we are in the area.
