I was going to be calling on customers all day in the surrounding area and decided that this would be a great location. The property is quite large and very well kept. My room was very clean and comfortable. It had a comfy bed with both soft & firm pillows so I slept like a baby! The free comp breakfast... More

Overall the hotel worked well when we stayed for our son's team event. The outdoor, unheated pool was a little disappointing for the kids, but they braved the freezing water anyway. Our room had a motion light that turned on if someone got up in the middle of the night. No way to turn it off that we could find... More

We stayed one night while on a quick trip to San Diego. The hotel is out of town, but conveniently located at a highway exit. The price was right, the room nice, and the stay was great, yet there was almost no one at the hotel. I have no complaints at all.

Stayed here for a night. Arrived at the hotel late but the check-in process was quick and smooth. The front desk was friendly and nice enough to accommodate my need of double beds and room on the first floor. Plenty of parking. I found a second entrance which was closer to our room from the parking area instead of through... More

Stayed here for 2 nights on the front end of a week long business trip. The hotel was nice enough to accommodate a special request to let me get into a room early, around 11 a.m., by prepping it before my arrival. This let me gain valuable rest time and sleep for a busy itinerary. The front desk staff was... More

You typically know what to expect with a Holiday Inn Express and this property met our expectations. We booked last-minute using points and had a 2-queen room which was located in the "annex" building. The facility itself seems like an older property, but the room was clean and very comfortable. Clearly some renovations have happened recently. There were many sports... More

I have stayed here several times. They never disappoint. They offer free breakfast and Blanca the breakfast specialist is always a friendly, smiling face. She is very attentive. The front desk staff go above and beyond. I have checked in all times of day and I'm greeted with a smile.
