The front desk staff was extremely friendly. The room was clean and the bed was comfy. Get a room facing away from the street and Chilis. It's kind of loud but the good thing is that you get a decent view of the parking lot so you can check on your car. The breakfast selection is good. They have a... More

Breakfast was superb for a freebie and is at or near the top of the heap for this class of hotel. My... More

Great location and staff. Very accomodating we arrived late on a rainy spring night. Chili's in the same parking lot, so convenient. We will stay here again. May become our home base whenever we are in San Diego. Close to all the entertainments we enjoy when in this area.

Staff was so accommodating and sweet. Perfect location if you want to be in the La Jolla/Sorrento Valley area. Everyone I spoke to at the Front Desk were always so nice and always kept a shuttle ready when needed.

I was initially scheduled to stay at another hotel but there was a mix up with my reservation. I had to scramble to find another hotel. I ended up here at Holiday Inn Express and was pleasantly surprised. The staff were great. Rooms were clean and the bathroom was a nice size. Free breakfast was great and free parking.
