“Average Overnighter”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

A quick overnight trip to Temecula with friends that chose this property. Stayed one night that was apparently sold out thus making the rate quite high for a Holiday Inn Express. It was clean and had friendly staff. The room was decent but average. The complimentary breakfast was adequate but not made-to-order.
Some rooms face the adjacent freeway. If you are sensitive to noise, ask for a room facing away from the freeway.

Frankly, it was way over priced (+$200) for an average "economy" room, a marginal breakfast, with freeway noise.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

First off, I rate this very good, but the four star is somewhat misleading. It is not a four star hotel - but it is a very good Holiday Inn Express grade hotel. The room was small, but comfortable, clean and well maintained. The hotel in general is small, comfortable, clean and well maintained. It has a small exercise room, and an outdoor pool.

To compare this to a true four star hotel is inappropriate - it is not nor does it claim to be. But, for travel, weekend getaway, or as in our case a wedding, it serves the purpose.

The breakfast was surprisingly good. Eggs (sometimes scrambled, sometimes cheese omelets), sticky buns, yogurt, some fruit along with cereals were on the buffet.

The staff was friendly and accommodating.

The only downside is the wifi was poor - very slow and weak signal. We were just checking email, and looking up some local attractions and directions, so we didn't demand much, but it was very slow.

If I was in the area again, I would stay here. There aren't really any better hotels in the area, except for some of the vineyards outside of town have resort accommodations.

Room Tip: This hotel, along with many others in the area, Hug Interstate 15. As others have commented. if poss...

My wife and I stayed the night at this hotel over the weekend. We had a third floor room. The rooms were clean and it came with its own air conditioner which made the temp. just like we wanted. The small buffet was surprisingly good. The beds were nice and parking was easy. Although we had a view of the freeway, we never heard it due to the room having.........wait for it, not one but 2 dual pane windows! I went to open the window to obtain some fresh air and found I had to open two different windows. Wow, I was impressed. The only noise we heard was a small humming coming from the A/C. There was a nice size flat screen television in the room and the water pressure in the shower was amazing. This is definitely not the Holiday Inn my father knew. The cost was just under $200 but when you look at the amenities (Jacuzzi, gym, buffet, etc.) it was worth it. It was so comfortable we asked for a late check out which was granted. I would recommend this place to my family and friends.

Room Tip: There's really no bad place in the hotel.

Thank you for your recent stay here and for taking your time time to write a review. I am happy that you enjoyed the comfort of your room and the local amenities here in Temecula. While it is great that you are fond of the coffee I am terribly disappointed that the breakfast was not up to standard. I want to assure you that I have spoke to the breakfast staff to insure that they are constantly checking the freshness of the baked items and also following the proper cooking procedures for the eggs. We hope that if you return to wine country that you choose to stay here with us again.

I'd definitely stay here again - the staff is friendly, the rooms are roomy and clean, and even the breakfast is pretty good - unusual for an inexpensive hotel, and the price is right. This hotel is just on the west side of Interstate 15, but still convenient to the wine country (15 minutes) and old-town Temecula. You can walk to fast food if that's your taste.

Room Tip: The west side hotels are away from Interstate 15 and are quieter.

We stayed for 2 nights at the end of March, while visiting friends in the area. Check in was easy, the room was spacious and comfortable. WiFi was very good. Breakfast was good, nice selections. Cookies in the early evening were a nice touch. The hotel was full, but was quiet. Staff were friendly and helpful.

We got in tired after a 9 hour drive. The manager Kathy checked us in with a smile and then to top it off sent cookies and milk to our room to make us feel better. Have never had that kind of personal attention and kindness from hotel staff. The room was nice and we enjoyed the breakfast.
