I enjoyed my stay, and was pleased to see the location was updated, clean, and with friendly staff. Front desk manager Yani was warm and friendly, and made an excellent recommendation for a local restaurant. I would stay here again, and highly recommend this location!

I like Holiday inn expresses and this one did not let me down. Decent price, clean room, nice staff, and good breakfast. Did not use the work out room or pool, but the work out room looked decent. The pool was a bit small and seemed like an afterthought, tucked in a corner of the parking lot. The room was... More

I was traveling on business from LA to National City and after a long day's drive got there. Yani at the front desk greeted with a big smile and when I asked for a quite room, changed me to the top floor away from traffic just as I'd hoped. Working late, I realized I forgot to make the photocopies needed... More

We stayed at this Holiday Inn Express due to it's location situated near restaurants and shopping. Although our ASAP cab driver from the airport thought he knew where this was he took us nearly to Imperial Beach before he finally listened to us, we arrived a half hour later than we planned but were greeted warmly at nearly midnight.

The receptionist was very nice, she even called our room few minutes after we arrived to check that we like the room. We were 4, one adult and 3 children and we have plenty of place. The room was very clean and the beds was very comfortable. Breakfast was very tasty and there were a lot of selection.

Very clean which is peace of mind when you travel so much for business. But, the thing that sets the property apart is the staff. Very professional and pleasant. Yani at the front desk is the best. Will stay here again when in the area.
