My wife and I were invited to our Granddaughter's Modern Dance Ballet in La Jolla, California Feb. 7, 2015. This property was 3.2 miles away and more reasonable than the upscale beachfront properties in the area. We arrived at 2 PM, and even thought the IHS REWARDS once again got my reservation screwed up, the staff found us a 2... More

We stayed at this Holiday Inn Express over a weekend earlier this month. If you want to be in downtown San Diego, this hotel is a bit out of the way. It's more in the suburbs. But the drive into town is not bad at all, as long as you avoid the evening commute. We were warmly welcomed by the... More

Very friendly staff. Nice location and typical amenities for a HIE. 1st morning a manager type greeted people in the breakfast area and asked how my stay was. I noted that the drain was a little slow. That evening when I took my shower, the drain had been fixed. The shower works great with a lot of flow and pressure,... More
