Arrived in the early evening and the staff at the desk was more than inviting. The desk person saw I was traveling with family and since the pool was closed, had upgraded my room to the suite before we even arrived to make up for it. The extra space that provided was well appreciated after a long drive and car-cramped... More

This is a clean quiet hotel with easy access and next to the mall. Plenty of places to eat nearby, gas stations and banks. Felt safe and secure with ease of access. Staff was informed and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The air conditioning worked well as it was very hot!!

Rooms were small, but had everything that we needed for the two nights we were there. A better fridge would have been nice. Amenities: the breakfast was great (typical with waffles, bacon, eggs) and allowed us to get a quick start on our day. The outdoor pool was fabulous - still warm in the evening which allowed us to cool... More

Best hotel experience of our 2 week road tour! Room was spotless and roomy with a great sitting room area for four of us. Beds were comfortable and refrigerator in the room was a plus. Hotel staff were accommodating and breakfast buffet was good!

I am extremely satisfied with my excursion. The room was spotless, the staff was agreeable and the breakfast was extremely divine. Gracious, BTW, they have crisp treats ordinary. My fav is nutty spread. I go on business and need snappy, productive and web prepared and Holiday Inn truly revealed the appreciated mat.

We stay at Holiday Inn Express Hotel's in part we will get a clean room at a reasonable price. The Carlsbad Holiday Express meets our expectations for this chain. Staff was friendly and help answering our questions for dinning and sites. Breakfast was OK, nothing special but included in our room price.
