I was so looking forward to a leisure day at the pool but much to my dismay the pool was closed for the new tile/deck work being performed. I arrived after dark and the taxi driver had great difficulty finding the property as scaffolding covered the front of the property. Came in through the dark parking lot with no identifying... More

The new section of the hotel was built but not yet opened, so we stayed in the original section, and the rooms were very updated and really nice. Spacious and clean. The ONLY issue I had with our room (hence the 4 stars versus 5) were the shower had no door (designed that way) and water happens to get onto... More

Beware!!!!!! Planned this trip in NOVEMBER for travel in June. Been traveling since 3am this morning. The hotel is COMPLETELY under construction. The previous posts say construction will be completed in May. The hotel informs us there are 30 rooms in the whole property that aren't under construction. This is absurd. The blanket has been pulled over our eyes. Disappointing... More

They are in the midst of a massive renovation. So, parking is way reduced and when you do park, you have to walk a 150 yards or so to your room. The rooms seem to be incomplete: no soap shelf in the shower; no drain cover in the shower floor; the light in the bathroom was positioned so close to... More

I stayed in room 109, which is a suite with small kitchenette and living room, on a recent business trip. It was a corner location off La Jolla Blvd. and very central to my activities for the week. I was pleasantly surprised at how quiet it was, despite a few reviews talking about the construction. The receptionist Rali was professional... More

Stayed here with my 3 children (ages 5 -12) and I was pleased that the room was clean and the continental breakfast provided exceeded our expectations.

We unexpectedly found ourselves needing a room in La Jolla. We called the Holiday Inn Express and received courteous and helpful treatment. We had an unusual suite that had windows on two courtyards. I would stay there again.

So, this hotel is under construction which they didn't mention at the time of making a booking.
