Stayed here for 1 very short night recently. The hotel is located a little of the highway but is easy to find. Had a late arrival but service at checkin was very good. The hotel extends to the back and is 2 levels high. If you are in a higher number you might have to walk a little but parking... More

Got a good rate on this hotel since it is a little out of the way from the downtown San Diego area (though not a big deal since we drove out anyway). The room was nice and modern and clean. We did have to be moved rooms since the A/C in the first room was not working. No problem being... More

I was disappointed that this hotel would not honor a group rate or comparable price when upgrading but I was even more disappointed to find out my pricier upgrade was a smaller room than the group rate room. Staff was more helpful at check-in than whomever previously assisted me over the phone & misled me about the layout of the... More

We were a little disappointed in that the Hotel itself is older and, frankly, could use some serious updating. The sofa in our room was pretty uncomfortable. Walls are thin and you can hear everything. Having said that, it was clean and the staff was excellent. Breakfast was included and was quite good. It was our first time visiting the... More

This property was a good value for the area -- which is somewhat pricey overall. The rooms were large and clean, and the king bed we had was very comfortable. The rooms are getting somewhat old, but they are, as indicated large, and they are kept up very well. Large screen TV, as well as fridge and microwave. Bathrooms are... More

Spent a night here during a business trip. Pretty standard rooms with expected amenities. It does have a pool - which is a small one. The fitness center has a few cardio machines. Breakfast was a reasonably good spread and the breakfast staff very friendly. Nothing stood out as exceptional in my experience here.

Room was very clean every day, location was good for me to where I had to travel on 52 and 78, perfect. I would come back, if needed a hotel to stay. Have always liked Holiday Express. You need to watch the news for traffic, could be a little busy when you leave the Hotel around that area.
