I recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Rancho Bernardo, after having avoided it for a number of years, but it has been redone and is now terrific. The rooms are very well appointed, there is a good self-serve free breakfast and it is walking distance to the Elephant Bar and a great Sushi restaurant, as options for dinner... More

The hotel is very nice, set up a little differently (separate buildings) but overall it was fine. The rooms were nice & clean and the bed was comfortable. The location is convenient and is right next to a decent restaurant which is really nice when you do not feel like getting into your car again at the end of a... More

The hotel is a good clean hotel with the regular breakfast options at any Holiday Inn. The architecture of the hotel is a little different and consistent with the San Diego landscape. The hotel staff was very courteous. The hotel is easily accessible off the highway and there are a lot of businesses around.

We stayed here for 2 nights. Check in and out was very quick and the front desk staff helpful. We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast, which started at 6 most mornings, that included hot pancakes, eggs, meat, biscuits and toasted items. There was also fresh fruit, juice, cereals, yogurt and milk. The room was spacious and nicely decorated. Hallway carpeting a... More

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.

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.
