This is a great hotel. Clean, noise-free, comfortable beds, good breakfast, complimentary wi-fi. It's rare to find immaculate hotels, this is certainly one of them, I have no complains and I will be back for sure when I visit Rancho Bernardo again.

My Daughter & I traveled to San Diego, after my Husband & her Dad passed away. We were looking for a place that was comfortable, as well as close to La Jolla, San Diego, and Del Mar beach...all places that we used to go when he was alive. Holiday Inn Express on Lusk Blvd in Rancho Bernardo was just the... More

Just an OK stay here. Property seems older but kept up well. One negative was the extremely loud A/C in the room. The complimentary breakfast was nice, but the whole "eating on plastic plates and plasticware" was a big turn off.....reeks of "cheap" Service was friendly and very good though. The gym also offers complimentary access to an LA Fitness... More

Updated clean comfortable rooms. Decent service. WiFi free. And a free breakfast with multiple choices that's actually edible in a large, comfortable room. More than I expected. Would stay again and recommend to others.

Overall, these are good accommodations for a great value. I booked 2 non-smoking single king rooms. Reservations were easy and fast to make over the phone. Upon check in, we found our reservation had been taken accurately, and all three of my requests were fulfilled (refurbished rooms, next to each other, and on the first floor). Upon check-in, we were... More

My first commendation must be to the staff. Bravo. Efficient, polite and very patient and helpful. I include check-in, breakfast room and housekeeping staff in that compliment. We had several rooms in both buildings and there is an update going on, so you may want to ask for a newly refreshed room. There seemed to be a soccer tournament in... More

Wow, I was pretty impressed with this place. The staff was really helpful and friendly, the room (despite being a pretty full) was very quiet, nice updated furnishings and nice daily breakfast buffet! I especially liked the bathroom which had nice shelving which for some reason made the vanity seem larger. I was surprised at the wide mix of folks... More

Would look for a fancier/newer hotel closer to the water for a family trip, but for business this worked well. Easy highway access, Starbucks and gas station for rental car and supplies within throwing distance of the hotel, solid Internet and clean bed. Definitely willing to stay again when in the area on business.
