We stayed at this hotel while visiting my daughter in Rancho Bernardo. The staff was most helpful and attentive. During our stay, the hotel was FULL of soccer kids due to a local tournament. This was handled well by the staff, especially the wonderful breakfast attendant. Even after the morning invasion by the soccer families, the breakfast area was always... More

I stayed here 2 nights recently on a business trip to the area. It was a perfectly fine place for the price, nothing great but I wasn't expecting the moon either. The staff was attentive and helpful for me. The room was clean and a bit old but I would say it fit the price range that I paid. The... More

I have had some hit or miss experiences with the Holiday Inn brand, so of course when I booked this one, I prayed I didn't make a mistake. Was in town for the jazz festival and most of the hotels were seriously overpriced and overbooked. So this one came up last minute at a decent price (compared to others in... More

I had been here for a week, staying on business, it is almost in the middle of no-where. Not close to any side on San Diego, neither to La Jolla, nor to San Diego, not to Carlsbad. However the stay was good, breakfast was decent. the rooms were fairly clean, bathrooms were rather small though. Good eating place next door... More

This Holiday Inn Express is clean, the beds are comfortable and the staff is helpful. It was nice to have the breakfast area that was large and quite to be able to use for informal business meetings. Don't forget to try the cinnamon rolls for breakfast.

I stayed here on business for a week with 5 team/customer representatives. The room I stayed was clean and spacious, along with the necessary amenities – wi-fi, TV, toiletries, etc. everything was efficient with nothing much to complain about. They have decent parking space too. I would like to have a little variety in the breakfast, if not improved quality.... More

We have stayed in many Holiday Inns (Express & Suites) and this was by far the worst one yet. We arrived late (9:30 PM) and were greeted nicely by the desk attendant, but received a key for rm 275 while room 225 was circled on our map. Luckily we didn't get too far before we noticed.
