Stayed in Holiday Inn Express locations for over a week, this was the most expensive and the worst shape of all. The lobby looks like it has been remodeled, but they may have forgotten about the rooms-please see my photos. I guess the best word I can think of to describe would be "junky". Every time we would go out...

During my 2 night stay, I experienced no issue whatsoever. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. My room was spacious, room 101, and very clean. The hotel is located close to the 15 freeway but far enough not to hear any traffic noise. I loved the new look of the breakfast area. The breakfast was absolutely delicious and very...

We stayed a week and a half at this hotel. Although we were told by the front desk that the hotel had recently been remodeled, the remodel was mostly in the lobby area. The rooms had new looking blinds, but difficult to operate. We were booked into the room directly across from the elevator and only ice machine for the...

First rate staff. Friendly and clean place to stay with family. This location is a little north of the San Diego area but very easy to access other areas. Very nice if you don't want to be right in the middle of the city craziness. Quiet location. Breakfast was very good and we would stay here again for sure.

This Holiday Inn Express has everything I need for a weekend away in San Diego. Comfortable, clean, nicely appointed, modern rooms; nice cold and hot pools; a very friendly staff; reasonably fast free internet; free parking; and possibly the best free breakfast for a hotel of this class. Less than 30 yards from the front door is a very nice...

I'd already heard comments about how friendly the staff was, that part is VERY true. The hotel itself was very nice. I had a large, comfortable room up on the 4th floor so I didn't have anyone walking around over me. Very nice! :) The breakfast buffet was excellent. I wish I'd had more time to enjoy it. My stay...
