Nice stay on a Saturday night - very quiet given the business park neighborhood. Clean rooms and good size, as expected for a Holiday Inn Express. Didn't try the breakfast as there are so many good breakfast options in the greater San Diego area.

The staff at this place were the friendliest and they engaged the guests in a welcoming way. My room was great and had been cleaned by a competent and conscientious housekeeper, which is a real rarity these days. (Thus the "excellent" rating.) The location was good for me on this trip. The entire property was well well kept and inviting.

I hosted a large event and had about 45 people stay at this hotel. The beds are excellent, good wifi, friendly staff, rooms have refrigerators, and the location is good for meetings at local businesses. The breakfast was minimal and the street noise made me want a higher level room. I would use this hotel again it only for business.

One of the larger HIEs we've experienced. Clean, quiet, and comfortable rooms. Could use more washers and dryers for guests. Am giving it a 4, rather than a 5, because some of the front desk staff were rather snippy.
