I sure did not think the place was that bad, nice? nope. but not that bad. The price of real estate in this town is so expensive, so to have a decent room at this price, with free, tight yes, but free parking and friendly service and a munch of holiday inn reward points made the overall value a five...

Stayed here 3 nights. Had king size which limited the space in room, almost no walking or storage room! Switched to two queen beds and it was much more roomier. Close to mission beach, weird hotel views.

The best thing about this hotel is its location. It's close to the airport, Qualcomm Stadium & close to the family we came to visit & spend time with. The staff was friendly & attentive & housekeeping kept our room tidy & clean!!! There are a couple of things that would have made our stay great! A microwave oven to...

Stayed here for 3 days. I love the friendly staff and the atmosphere! The rooms are very nice and look recently updated. The maids were very nice and made sure that we were very well taken care of. I would highly recommend this hotel and plan on staying here for my next trip to La Mesa.

We arrived pretty late but they were very accommodating and we got to our room. No issues. The cost was higher than quoted. That was a problem. Also, the next morning we had an ant infestation. They were in the sink. I knew then it was time to go. Not happy about that.

Great place to stay if you are in this area of San Diego. It was very clean, there were enough towels, the tv worked fine and even a Keurig coffeemaker was provided. You can never go wrong with a Holuday Inn!

It's tough to recommend the Holiday Inn at La Mesa. It is not actually owned by Holiday Inn, but simply licensed to a third-party. Because of this franchise model, it arguably does not deliver as a 3-star hotel. Here's the rundown. Go there only if, - you don't care much for customer service; - only need a very short stay...

This place was just OK. Not very quiet - we heard banging each morning and mid afternoon. Even though our room was on the end, we heard only occasionally loud people. Room was fair - restaurant very expensive for what you get, eat somewhere else. The food was OK - just better selection in the area. We stayed 3 nights...

Small property. Small pool. No parking. Horrible attached restaurant. The experience left me with a very bad taste in my mouth. Not enjoyable. I would spend a bit more and find a more respectable alternative.

Shawnie Payton is the front desk agent that I interacted with, her smily face and warm welcomes have made my day. She is definitely the most friendliest front desk agent that I have ever met. Thank you.....................................
