Awesome location just north of San Diego off the 5, Big Nice Modern Rooms with HDTV, clean newer bathrooms, quiet nights sleep and Awesome Breakfast. I truly wish all HI Express locations could be this good ! The one up the freeway in Rancho Bernardo is nowhere near this nice and costs more....

Check inn was a chore, they share parking with dennys and the hotel next door. The staff didn't seem well trained or all that friendly for that matter. The room it self was nice, not great but nice, I thought the price was a bit on the high side for what you get, but obviously could do a lot worse,...

I stay regularly at Holiday Inn Express and have never had a bad experience, but this particular hotel really needs to take a look at their overall operations. When we checked in we were told the hotel was sold out. But when we went to the room assigned, it was being worked on. Even though they had just stated the...

We had some misgivings about reserving rooms here based solely on reviews but decided to take a chance on it. As far as rating, this hotel falls somewhere in the middle for us. It is evident they’ve made some good improvements, but for a hotel that was so recently updated, there were a few concerns. Upon entry, the room had...

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...

It seems that the rooms are not being cleaned daily and the breakfast is of low quality. Laundry services are not available. Front desk mentioned that they are not sure if the laundry will get back in time. Also, coffee from the lobby is tasteless. Toilet amenities are not replenished. No slippers provided.

I recently stayed at this hotel even though it was under construction the staff was very apologetic about the construction. What I found unexpected was how rude the Supervisor named Gina was to the housekeepers. It is a shame. Edwin was very helpful and very pleasant.

John G, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I am very sad to hear that a member of my management team was less than respectful to our support team. Leadership through fear or rudeness is not a supported action and I will be sure to address this with Gina and give her the support she needs...

I didn't love or hate this hotel. The room is nice. The bathroom is nice, save for the fact there is no fan so after every shower you have to walk your naked butt out to fan the smoke detector that goes off. The breakfast in the morning is pretty good, more than just coffee, juice, and muffins. Our experience...
