“Would Stay Again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

I only stayed for one night when I was passing through La Mesa, but I thought it was a good property. Free parking and clean rooms. The front desk staff at this establishment is so nice! And I love they have an engineer on sight to fix thing during the evening hours, not all hotels do. I'd definitely stay again if I ever find myself down that way again. :)

The hotel is pretty nice and clean, not in a great location though. There's not much to do around the hotel, you gotta drive to get to somewhere fun. The check in experience was great, the staff was very friendly and helpful especially Jelanny! She was very friendly and informative. The rooms are a comfortable size, nice and clean. At night we needed some extra towels and Rick the security guard was nice enough to bring some up to our room, he was also very friendly! Would definitely stay here again if I'm in the La Mesa area!

Room Tip: Ask to be upgraded they are more than happy to do it if you ask.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn La Mesa for 10 days. The rooms are nice and beds are comfy. The front desk staff was very friendly especially Andre he was very professional and gave A-1 customer service. He went far and beyond to make sure I was satisfied and with his assistance we were able to get around San Diego without any problems. Kudos to Andre!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The room have mini fridges but I miss the microwave oven. Overall a great stay. I would recommend this hotel and I would also stay here again.

I checked in late at night, close to midnight. The late night staff was great - very friendly, and even gave me some late night dining options. The next morning, the rest of the team did not disappoint!! Great location, great beds and clean clean clean!! I definitely recommend this hotel.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn La Mesa for our Niece's graduation and were very happy with our stay. The rooms were very cozy and clean. The staff at the front desk was very polite and extremely helpful especially Jelani. I will definetly stay at this hotel the next time I am in town.

My experience at the Holiday Inn La Mesa was perfect. I was on a 48 hour business trip to San Diego and because I am always on the go I require specific amenities - and this hotel delivered! CLEAN rooms, coffee, WiFi, 24 hour fitness center, a clean pool, late laundry hours, (a bar), and happy-to-help service. By far the best rate for cleanliness I have ever experienced. Was greeted with kindness from the moment I checked in. Will certainly be staying here next time I'm in town.

My wife and I were recently visiting family in the area and we stayed 2 nights at this Holiday Inn. The property is a good value compared to the more expensive choices in San Diego and Mission Valley. The staff was very nice, breakfast was good and housekeeping was fine. I would recommend this hotel; nothing fancy but a good place to stay with a nice staff.
