This was a great hotel. For the price it is above average, I have definitely paid more for less. I can't think of anything to complain about. I gave above average because the breakfast was fantastic, the pool had a jacuzzi, the view was nice, the service was good. Don't hesitate a second, unless you are expecting a 4 star... More

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Rancho Bernardo for three nights in July 2007. My first night, I set the air conditioning at 70 because the room was very warm. At midnight, I woke up and the temperature read 89 degrees. I contacted the front desk, and they moved me to a different room. The next two nights, the exact... More

I stay at this hotel frequently because it is inexpensive and does meet my needs as a business traveler. I have to work in the Rancho Bernardo area twice a month so I've tried a few other hotels. This is a typical Holiday inn. The rooms have free Hi speed Internet service and there is a computer and a printer... More

Don't be fooled by the impressive photos on the web site which are a totally different hotel (you will pass it on the way from the airport). Found the room to be ok (standard drab american decoration) with in-room beverages limited to the ubiquitous coffee; no alternative of tea. There's a noisy fridge in the room, but if you want...

We were very disappointed with this hotel. The hotel is rated as a three-star hotel but is a two star hotel at best. The room was filthy (particularly the carpet and curtains). The mattress was in very poor condition (I can feel the springs). We also did not feel safe in the room based on the location of the room... More

Great hotel for the business traveler with lots of the usual amenities including the Elephant Bar right next door. I've been a regular guest here since January 06 and have found the Staff working the front desk to be very friendly and very professional. If the room is missing something or something's not quite right, they are very quick to... More

Our family traveled to San Diego in August 2005. We arrived to check in to the Holiday Inn at 17065 W Bernardo Dr and found the staff very short and unfriendly. As we waited to be served another person was complaining that his air was not working(it was hot that day). They told him they would send someone to fix... More

This was a great stay for the money! We not only had a great, clean room but they also added a free breakfast buffet and free wine/beverage during happy hour. The staff were awesome. Very, very friendly and accomodating! This was well worth the money. I will definetely stay here again!

Stayed here July 15th. Had a room on the 2nd floor. Parking is very limited. Had to park behind the Elephant Bar and Restaurant after the hotel front desk staff assured me that it was OK. Morning breakfast was great. Would stay here again.

I stayed here a couple of weeks ago and was very pleased with the value for money (especially on the UK exchange rate). I had a good, well airconditioned room with plenty of towels, good toiletries, space and all the facilities working - not always the case in chains. It was very clean and as a non smoking room was...
