A friendly Holiday Inn Express in a great location. It's a great deal for a hotel considering the area. Just remember, you get what you pay for. If you have problems with stair climbing, request a first floor room. Also recommend you ask for a room NOT facing the main road as the traffic can be noisy. The rooms are dated and the TV was smaller than you would expect. The breakfast area is small and the milk for my cereal was sour. I really can't recommend this place for a long term stay. I'm stay at HI properties every week and won't stay here again.

Came to Carlsbad for the marathon and this place was closest to the start/finish so I could plan to get a late checkout and shower afterwards.

From the outside it was apparent that the structure was a refurbished motel, probably from the 60's, but since it was an HI Express I figured it has certain standards. Check-in was efficient and they afforded me a semi-late checkout as there were apparently a lot of runners staying there and housekeeping couldn't afford to let people stay too late.

I was on the second floor with no lift, but I travel light and it wasn't an issue. The door to the room looked a bit dodgy (thin and not closing tight without exerting pressure) but it did lock so not overly concerning. The room also had a balcony which I didn't make use of.

The room was large and tidy, clean and had a large flat-panel tele. The fan in the bathroom came on with the light and was quite noisy, however. The room AC was thermostactically controlled and not overly noisy which was nice.

Linens were thrifty, but OK, and the bed was comfortable. For supposedly being full it was pretty quiet and I slept OK.

Breakfast in the morning was standard buffet style with eggs, pastry, pancakes, cereal, etc.

Wifi was good.

Overall a decent place to stay for the night.

Got to Pendleton and found out that the hotel on base was overbooked so we were desperate to find a room that wasn't ridiculously expensive. Came across this place online for cheaper than almost anywhere else in the area. The staff was friendly, but not very clean rooms. It was as to be expected for the price. It seems further from the base than it says simply because of the insane traffic. Overall it was a good stay and I would return.

Stayed here on a Priceline Express Deal on Oct 12. The hotel is in a very noisy location near the freeway. Carried bags upstairs to room on second floor. The pool is in the middle of the hotel so is virtually useless as it must get no sun. The noise from the pool compressor was very loud and our room was right above it. The shampoo and conditioner left in the room had been partially used by someone else. I had to wear earplugs to sleep.

Now the good. The bed was comfortable and I love the soft and hard pillow option. The two front desk personnel and the breakfast lady were very nice. Breakfast was fine. I hope to never stay in a Holiday Inn Express again if this is what they are like. Will not use Priceline any more for booking - have stayed in two Holiday Inn Express and they were both not acceptable.

Place looks pretty run down. On the positive note staff was super friendly and accommodating. I had to wake up early because as soon as house keeping started cleaning there was a huge amount of noise. If I didn't know better I would have sworn they had construction going on. There was no alternative but to get up and get ready for the day. Didn't complain because the staff was so nice. I think the rooms are over priced though and wouldn't stay here again unless it was a last resort.

Since we stayed here for only one night my husband and I tuff'd it out. But quite honestly this place needs a remodel. AC in each room is the old fashion big unit that does't run off a thermostat. So, its either on or off. Not good :( They don't have a lobby or reception area so that you can sit with your computer or just sit and read or watch TV. The pretty small for a hotel. Popcorn ceilings are a throwback to the 70's and the rooms are kinda musty.
The good things are the rooms were clean and good size, flat screen TV's are new and nice, parking was sufficient, plenty of restaurants close by. Staff was outstanding and did everything the could to help their customers.
Like I said - the property is tired and she shows it!
