The front desk clerks were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a good location and was clean and well kept. Breakfast was awesome. The biscuits and gravy were so good as well as the bacon. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again.

The Mira Mesa Holiday Inn Express location is the best way to go! I had a pleasant experience at this location as they have comfortable mattress, top rate customer service, and you'd be eating the breakfast of the champions perfect to start your day! I highly recommend this hotel location.

Like other Holiday inn hotels in the world, this one deliver a consistent level of service, it is in a close location for visiting the northern part of San Diego and very easy to find.

Too many Holiday Inn Express properties seem like they were simply rebranded from an old Super 8 and made to look like a new, improved HI Express. Happy to report this one delivers on all of the HI Express promises. There's nothing especially fancy here, but it's a clean property with a friendly staff and a great location near the... More

Normally I don't write reviews. But this place has come a long way since I last stayed here in 2005. Not sure if that has to do with the staff, the managers or the chain's mandates, but it's well worth the stay now. I was very impressed with the staff's friendliness and the breakfast spread.
