Nice hotel in a pretty nice neighbourhood. What really set this hotel apart was the friendliness of the staff. Fast check in and they helped us with some directions with knowledge and thoughtfulness. We loved the pool. Even though it was only in the upper 60's the water was warm and well taken care of. I wish there was a...

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for your review. I am glad to see that you enjoyed our pool and that the staff was accommodating. I do apologize regarding the outlet causing you to move rooms. I also wanted to apologize that I never reached out to you personally regarding this shock. Unfortunately, aside from knowing about the power outage, I...

I've stayed a hundreds of different hotels over the years including many Holiday Inn Express. This was without a doubt the best experience I have had with Holiday Inn. The staff here was exceptional.

Mostly our stay was very nice, although I did have a couple of complaints. The staff was friendly and efficient during check-in, and they did immediately resolve any problems that arose. The hotel underwent a major renovation at some point because the rooms are decorated quite nicely, with pretty art, dark wood contemporary furniture, and granite top dresser and nightstands....

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you very much for your review. I am glad to see that it was an enjoyable one. In regards to recycling; as we do not have separate bins in the rooms, the housekeepers themselves do separate the recyclables before ever reaching the dumpster area. We too here at the Holiday Inn La Mesa, believe in keeping...

Having the right to do something doesn't mean it's the right thing to do. Needed a small meeting space on very short notice for clients to quietly meet and sign some sensitive documents. I really only needed about an hour. Called "Sales" at this venue, and was told their small conference room was available for $250 per 1/2 day. OK,...

Dear Rogets, As in many other business settings, we to have rates set for our services provided to our customers, in this case, meeting room rental. Just because I did not deviate from this set rate that was verbally agreed to on the phone with my sales manager, does not mean in any way that I intentionally wronged you. In...

Stayed here for one night during family weekend for SDSU. Close to SDSU campus. Room was updated and clean. Check in and out was simple, friendly and fast.

Haven't stayed in Holiday Inn for years, I wonder what's the difference between its Holiday Inn product line and Holiday Inn Express product line. To me this facility is even below the Express product line, there wasn't much in this facility at all, if you are just looking for a place to sleep, this works fine. This hotel does not...

We had very little issues checking in to this hotel. There was very little wait and the staff was absolutely wonderful (Robert). He managed to get all three of our families in rooms close to each other on the 3rd floor. The rooms themselves are large with very comfortable beds. The location of the hotel was also good with close...

I'd imagine this place isn't inviting on a drive-by, but we booked here because of Expedia's "Undisclosed Hotels" rate and got a room for dirt cheap.

The hotel has a professional staff and is conveniently located a short drive away to the main points of attractions.
