We stayed here recently for 3 nights.

Positives: Clean, safe, conveniently located close to the beach and other La Jolla attractions. Free parking, free internet, decent breakfast

Negatives: Had to wait for checkin (room wasnt ready despite calling ahead of time), rooms are old, definitely don't reflect $350/night price we paid, AC unit was broken

It was our pleasure to host you and your family on your La Jolla vacation. I'm glad you found the hotel safe and clean, and enjoyed the beach and nearby sites. I'd like to thank you for your patience and understanding at check in. We work very hard during the high season to ensure that guests can check in on time. Our property was fully remodeled in the last two years. The pool area, the breakfast room, as well as all the rooms and suites. It got a fresh new look while still keeping the boutique charm we're famous for.
See you on your next trip to sunny San Diego.

We stayed here for 3 days last week, and had a wonderful time, close to the beach, great free breakfast, and free parking.Enjoyed the pool area, and had some lovely meals at the nearby restaraunts, must mention Mandarin House next door. I spent ages picking a hotel near the beach in san diego, and couldnt have found anywhere better than holiday inn express.

LOVED our stay here...can't say enough good things about the fabulous staff that truly go above and beyond, perfect location, great complimentary breakfast, lovely pool area, comfortable beds, and just a short stroll down to the beach. There are a few restaurants near by and a 7-11 super close for your Slurpee Runs.

Room tip: Room with a view on traffic side of hotel, but didn't bother us at all.

Very nice location close to the surf beaches 5 minutes from downtown with cat. The whole place is newly renovated, vertical nice and fresh! Large clean room with 2 overzised beds. The pool area is a very nice with plush sun beds. Breakfast is better than most free breakfast so. Lots of of choices! Very easy to catch Uber in to town. We will be back!

We stayed here one night before a cruise out of San Diego and fell in love with the area and this great little Holiday Inn Express! It's a short drive or nice long walk if you want to go to the cove and see the seals. Restaurants, shopping and places to get a drink are close enough to walk to. We had a great Cinco de Mayo dinner at the Mexican restaurant just across the street. This is not your typical cookie-cutter Holiday Inn Express. We loved the breakfast area's outdoor courtyard seating and relaxing pool area with plenty of shady landscaping.
