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.

We stayed at this hotel while visiting my daughter in Rancho Bernardo. The staff was most helpful and attentive. During our stay, the hotel was FULL of soccer kids due to a local tournament. This was handled well by the staff, especially the wonderful breakfast attendant. Even after the morning invasion by the soccer families, the breakfast area was always... More

I stayed here 2 nights recently on a business trip to the area. It was a perfectly fine place for the price, nothing great but I wasn't expecting the moon either. The staff was attentive and helpful for me. The room was clean and a bit old but I would say it fit the price range that I paid. The... More

I have had some hit or miss experiences with the Holiday Inn brand, so of course when I booked this one, I prayed I didn't make a mistake. Was in town for the jazz festival and most of the hotels were seriously overpriced and overbooked. So this one came up last minute at a decent price (compared to others in... More

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.
