Arrival: I've stayed at this hotel a few times already, and the staff is always friendly, especially at the front desk. Super easy check-in process. There's a small convenience shop in the front lobby with some items for purchase. They offer a few complimentary toiletries if you forget something, and they leave out a plate of chocolate chip cookies for guests in the lobby! Location: Excellent location right on Mira Mesa Boulevard. There are plenty of shopping centers and restaurants nearby, and it is close to the freeway. In the same parking lot is another hotel, Denny's, and a few other eateries. Directly across the street is a shopping center with a Trader Joe's. About a 20 minute drive to SAN airport. Room: The rooms are spacious, clean, and updated with comfortable beds and a decent size bathroom. Rooms are equipped with a closet, hair dryer, TV, microwave, mini fridge, coffee/tea maker, plenty of outlets, and ample lighting. Nothing to complain about in this regard. Amenities: The rates include breakfast. The breakfast spread is pretty good and has a mix of hot (freshly made pancakes, eggs, sausage, toast, Cinnabon cinnamon buns, oatmeal) and cold (yogurt, fresh fruit, cereal, hard boiled eggs). Complimentary tea/coffee and citrus-infused water available around the clock. The gym is well-equipped with a few treadmills, ellipticals, weights, yoga mats, towels, water, bowl of fresh fruit, and a restroom. At different times they were out of water in the cooler, disinfectant wipes for the equipment, and soap in the bathroom.

I’ll start by pointing out the things we might have overlooked: 1)the one and only elevator breaking down 2)elevator later getting stuck 3)front sliding doors getting taped off 4)parking issues 5)lack of cleaning staff Our biggest problems are with the charge for a night that we didn’t use. Our group was told we could check out a day early without charge. My husband had made sure the day before that this was true. He had to leave before me to get our boys to the their game with the rest of the team. Others from our group had already checked out with no problem. I thought I would be doing the same; checking out and then heading to the airport to catch my flight home. Instead I was “greeted” by a staff member who seemed preoccupied and upset about something prior to her coming to the front desk. She tells me that I will be charged for that additional night on our 2 rooms. I explain that there is miscommunication as my husband had already taken care of that. She wanted nothing to do with what I had to say. I asked to speak to someone else in charge and it gets worse. My husband had then gotten a hold of me and wanted to speak to her from my phone to explain the situation. He’s trying to take care of this on speaker in his truck while driving an hour away with my sons and a friend. The manager does not want to speak to my husband and continues to proceed and process the extra charge. It gets even worse. I find out on the way to the airport that my husband ended up calling her at the hotel and she takes the route to make erroneous accusations about me. That takes unprofessional and disrespect to another level. We won’t stand for this kind of flat out lying. We are a family and community of character. Our society has let to much of this new defamation of character approach go to far. We can only hope that the Holiday Inn corporation will take this matter seriously and act accordingly. As for us we are sticking to another establishment where the customer is always treated with truth and respect.

The Holiday Inn Express off of Mira Mesa and Hwy 15 is super convenient to local attractions and businesses. The rooms are very up to date, modern, clean and quite. The front desk staff was super friendly and helpful. The only thing that wasn’t awesome was the internet speed, makes it hard to do work from the room. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Our family just returned from a holiday trip in San Diego. I am going to start by saying I know one of the days we stayed was on New Years Eve. Since it was a holiday no one was available to help us when the hotel had issues. This score is not based on the workers there during our stay. When we checked into our hotel it was a cold, windy day in San Diego. It was about 48 degrees when we checked in. When we turned on the heat it made a loud squeaking sound. There was no way to ignore the sound. I immediately went to the front desk to ask to change rooms or get it fixed. I was told that the hotel was all booked and the maintenance guy was not available. When I asked what options we had she told me she didn't know what we could do. The only idea she had was to turn off the heater. When we did that it got uncomfortably cold in the room. We were all sleeping with our coat on. After talking to the front desk a few more times she went next door to another hotel to get us a blanket and head phones to block out some of the noise. We were told at that time that our night would be taken care of and we could move rooms the next day. The next day we asked to talk to a manager multiple times but never got to talk to him. We were also told that the maintenance guy would be in our room first thing. When we left for the day(at 11:30) he had not shown up. Upon returning to the hotel we turned the heater on at about 11:00p.m. and found that the heater was still broken. When we talked to the manager the next day he finally moved us rooms and told us we would get points back for the day. We only got 2,000 points back. Not enough to do anything with (a room is 20,000 points). I love Holiday Inns Express. It is always our "go to" hotel. I have never felt as stuck as I did this week. I felt like nobody was able to help us when we needed it most. It was very heartbreaking. I have had enough good experiences at Holiday Inn that I will go to another one in the future. But I would have a hard time recommending this place to anyone else.

Stayed recently for 1 night. Hotel is conveniently located and has enough parking space. Arrived late but service at front desk was still good. Rooms are well equipped and up to par with IHG standards. Breakfast area is well maintained and breakfast is included. WIFI is of good quality and free. All together nice hotel to stay for leisure or business.
