We found a good deal for four nights on hotwire. It was a decent enough stay but that is just about it. Rooms are comfortable which is good. The quality of the rooms and level of cleanliness is acceptable. Two points may have been misleading or bothersome: 1. The thermostat in the room is locked at 75 degrees Fahrenheit and... More

I want to thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience at the Holiday Inn Express Rancho Bernardo. We apologize for the mishaps during your stay. The reason that we have A/C's set to 75 is becuase some guest tend to turn our units down to 65 degrees or less. When this happens with the... More

Hotel is nice, room was good and comfortable. Comp breakfast in the morning was great and the lady working the breakfast area was working very hard. She did a wonderful job. Elevator was a bit annoying as you need a room key to use it, which was a problem because my husband and son went down to pool with the... More

I spend well over 100 nights per year in Holiday Inn Expresses because they are typically quiet, clean, predictable and reasonably priced. This one is an exception. It's a tired, poorly laid out facility in an awkward location. OK, I can deal with that, but I was not pleased by the paper thin walls (I unwillingly participated in a conversation... More

Stayed here for 2 weeks. The breakfast is good. The suite was pretty good. One of the TVs didn't work, so they upgraded us to a larger suite, which was actually pretty spacious and had a jacuzzi in the bathroom. The general areas in the corporate building take you aback at first since it's a bit old and the carpets... More

Interesting one this. The hotel doesn't strike you as great when you check in and you may have to walk a LONG way to your room. It has a weird very long and thin layout. Not very good if your room key gets wiped somehow and you have to walk all the way back (or even twice)... But the staff... More

The rooms are good with all the amenities. The service is good, breakfast is too good. Small pool that kids would enjoy. Its right next to the freeway so easy accessibility to various location. Its on a quite street but a bit far from downtown and Coronado beach.

I stayed here for a two week business trip (my trip was actually 3 weeks but I asked my company to find a different hotel for me to stay). Week one was okay, there was a fridge and microwave in the room as requested, the room was clean enough. The next week I got a different room, there was a... More

This hotel has great amenities in the room. There is a microwave, refrigerator and a sleeper sofa. The pillows and blankets were soft and smelled fresh. You are able to turn the air down super low so the room stayed cool. We had a late night check in and the staff was friendly and answered any questions. We even requested... More

Having stayed in North San Diego many times this is a good place, but not great. The rooms are a little worn. It is noisy on the first floor even where I stayed almost at the end on the hotel. Breakfast as always at the Holiday is one of the best. Staff was great! Wifi was slow.
