“Good for the price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Typical Holiday Inn Express with breakfast, good for the price. My room was clean, but a bit noisy, because of the air-con, as well as facing the restaurant/gas station. I don't hear much from the nearby highway. During my stay there were a big group of teens, so it was a bit noisy along the hall way, and a bit messy in the public restrooms. Staff are nice and friendly. Easy access to the freeway.

Room Tip: I had a room facing the gas station, a bit noisy, maybe other rooms are better.

Green Features: A lot of foam plate and plastic forks/spoons were used in the breakfast, maybe we can use some biodegradable ones, or reusable ones.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

We stayed here for 3 nights to take our kids to Legoland. Although the hallways could do with a freshening up, the room and lobby/breakfast areas all looked renovated. There was a pool and someone cleaning it daily. The front desk and breakfast staff were excellent and friendly. Breakfast provided daily eggs (alternated omelets and scrambled, always hardboiled eggs available), sausage or bacon and yummy warm cinammon buns. It was easy to hop on the highway to get to Legoland or Wild Animal Park. I would recommend staying here.

Room Tip: Stay away from the room next to the pool. can get noisy at night if kids are in the pool.

We stayed here for one night for a quick visit. This location is convenient for anyone who does not want to pay the price of staying in La Jolla or San Diego. It's only 15-20 mins to La Jolla and about 35-40 mins south to San Diego or north to plenty of surrounding casinos. The hot breakfast was a nice free addition also. There is a small pool and jacuzzi outside. The front desk service was fast and friendly. If you want shopping, there is a Westfield Mall in Escondido a few exits north on the 15 fwy. This is a bedroom community so restaurants tend to close around 9pm.

We stayed here on a Name Your Own Price last minute stay, but I would book this hotel again at normal rates.

Pros
-- Quiet location despite proximity to I-15.
-- Easy access to freeways
-- Great breakfast
-- Rooms are clean, comfortable and welcoming
-- Front desk staff was friendly and efficient

Cons (only 1)
-- My shower was lukewarm, but I am sure this was an anomoly

Don't hesitate to stay here. It's not a 4 or 5 star hotel, but for a 3 star hotel it is fantastic.

This hotel has 2 buildings and an underground garage. It has a pool and a patio. They also offer a full hot breakfast. The staff is extremely friendly and make you feel welcomed. The beds are older and too hard for my liking.

Central location to everything San Diego and Escondido this is a great place with perfect staff to help you out with whatever you need. Nice pool/hot tub, clean rooms, new with great breakfast on site free! Elephant Bar within walking distance is great food. Close to freeway and gas. Say hi to James at front counter, he will take care of you. All staff was great to work with.

Room Tip: All were good you will hear the freeway when outside but rooms are good.

Green Features: They do their part. Light bulbs, wont change towels if on rack, just make up bed if you want.
