A group of my friends, my mom and I stayed at this hotel for a quick one night stay. This hotel was nice for what we used it for- a rest stop before heading to San Fernando. The room was nice, but dark. There were many television channels that we could watch for free. The beds were okay but not... More

Thank you for taking the time to provide a review through TripAdvisor. I am delighted to see the high scores for the cleanliness, service and value of the hotel.

Sept. 2011 we stayed at this hotel for the 1st time. They gave us a mini-suite & plenty of towels for 5 women traveling to see family. After accidentally leaving my very expensive favorite pillow, they saved it for me (secured it in a plastic pkg) and mailed it to me immediately as promised. WOW!! Because of that great experience...

I put people up here for my wedding. The rooms are clean and nice looking, not huge but a decent size. My guests commented on the good mattresses, how handy the little coffee shop on site was, how nice it was. I had the desk staff put gift baskets in the rooms and one didn't get there. I told the...

My husband and I were in SD visiting family for 10 days so we needed a hotel that was good value and easily accessible from the freeway. We were pleasantly surprised by this Holiday Inn. Firstly, the staff were all very friendly and helpful during our entire stay. We had a large room and the bed was very comfortable, the... More

Room was clean, staff was very friendly. Good downtown location. Italian restaurant next door delivers for free! Parking lot is a bit small, would be a serious challenge if you have a trailer. Everything worked as expected, very quiet and pool/spa is family friendly. Would recommend this establishment to our friends.

Great hotel. We were greeted by very friendly personnel. Our room was clean, nice decor, comfortable beds. You have a choice of firm or soft pillows. Had breakfast at its Mesa restaurant. Not bad at all - $20 for 2 adults and a kid. 7/11, Mexican eatery, McDonalds – everything is just around the corner. Close to San Diego Zoo

We made a last minute decision to go to San Diego for the Chargers home opener and the Express was booked so we decided on the inn. Checked in... It was great. Hotel and room was clean. Turned on the air...and... More
