I had been here for a week, staying on business, it is almost in the middle of no-where. Not close to any side on San Diego, neither to La Jolla, nor to San Diego, not to Carlsbad. However the stay was good, breakfast was decent. the rooms were fairly clean, bathrooms were rather small though. Good eating place next door... More

This Holiday Inn Express is clean, the beds are comfortable and the staff is helpful. It was nice to have the breakfast area that was large and quite to be able to use for informal business meetings. Don't forget to try the cinnamon rolls for breakfast.

I stayed here on business for a week with 5 team/customer representatives. The room I stayed was clean and spacious, along with the necessary amenities – wi-fi, TV, toiletries, etc. everything was efficient with nothing much to complain about. They have decent parking space too. I would like to have a little variety in the breakfast, if not improved quality.... More

We have stayed in many Holiday Inns (Express & Suites) and this was by far the worst one yet. We arrived late (9:30 PM) and were greeted nicely by the desk attendant, but received a key for rm 275 while room 225 was circled on our map. Luckily we didn't get too far before we noticed. Yes we got the... More

Normally, when I stay in San Diego for work, it is at the Radisson in rancho bernardo or the marriott courtyard. This time, I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express. The hotel overall is ok, it is located next to the elephant walk restaurant and a bunch of restaurants less than a mile away. The hotel: not as clean as... More

This was a nice place to stay in a great area. There are better places close by but most were booked up during my stay. The staff there were very accommodating. Lots of families vacationing here. Pool was very loud which did not bother me but it may bother others looking for a quiet getaway.

First of all let me start by saying that the staff here are amazing. Very polite, helpful, friendly and smiley. They gave us a bag of fruit to thank us for staying! Never had anything back off a hotel to say thanks ever! If it was down to them alone -would be 5*. Unfortunately the rooms really let the place... More

We probably would've enjoyed this property more had we visited in the off-season. Instead, we found ourselves battling for space during a busy summer weekend. It was still a good visit, but we were happy to have some elbow room after check-out. The hotel overall is a good value. The price is right, the staff was very friendly, and the... More
