I've stayed in Holiday Inns all over the states (Bay Area, OC, and even in New Orleans) as well as abroad (Frankfurt and Beijing) and I had always loved that there was uniformity. Part of that uniformity was the complimentary continental breakfast so I was shocked when at this one in La Mesa they said that it was not included.... More

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for your review. I do apologize about any confusion about breakfast and the Holiday Inn brand. To clear up any confusion; the Holiday Inn brand standard requires all Holiday Inn's to have a full service restaurant on site in which the restaurant serves a full breakfast and dinner (not complimentary). The Holiday Inn Express brand... More

Staff is very nice but the hotel is older & smells older. Room service was very fast but food was not great. Areas of the room (corners etc) had not been cleaned in awhile. The shower curtain was moldy at the bottom & the room just had a "old" smell about it. I had breakfast in the restaurant & it... More

The bathroom is nice with a large shower, but with two small young children this was a problem. Luckily we stayed down the street from... More

We booked 2 nights through Hotwire in July 2014. The first night was horrible! The front desk put us in room adjacent to an ice machine, which people were using throughout the night. When I couldn't stand it anymore, I went down to the front desk at 6am to complain. The front desk agent was very surprised, because the ice... More

Hotel is across Costco and other restaurants. Very convenient area to go downtown. Hotel is clean. It has free Wi-fi and free parking. The area is very safe. I would definitely recommend this hotel. Rate is excellent.
