Stayed here for 4 days while visiting the wineries, of which there are a lot of in the area. Everything was clean and comfortable, breakfast was good and there was plenty. There are plenty of fast food and other restaurants in walking distance.

I have to say that Kathy Lindeman and her entire staff are amazing and very professional. From the front desk, breakfast personnel, housekeeping and so forth, they are all very qualified at what they do. Kathy took care of all of our requests, we had come in as part of the Bellator group and needed a room for one more night and she made it happen. Very polite staff , very clean and well kept hotel.I highly recommend this hotel over any other hotel in the area just for the great customer service.

.....this Holiday Inn Express is ranked #12 of 18 hotels in Temecula.

First, let me note that the staff is excellent. Very professional and very helpful. My complaint about the bathroom light with a mind of its own (turned off after 20 minutes of no use) was met by a maintenance person within minutes to see if he could make it work. He could not.

The problems I note here can all be laid at the feet of Holiday Inn Express management.

The outside structure was built no later than the 1980's and it looks it. However, I really like HIex bedding, particularly the smooth white sheets tightly tucked. So I took a shot at it.

Walking into the hotel entrance gives me the feeling that I am in a mausoleum. Black wall, dark stones, ugh. Dark and dreary. That could be so easily fixed.

The interior halls all smell of cleaning fluid.

Decor appears (to me) to be late 80's. Could be more recent, but if so, the decorator was pretty poor, or HIex dictated a low low budget. Probably the latter.

I was "upgraded" to a king bed with a sofa. Would have been better off without the ratty looking fabric sofa, also of ancient lineage.

The bed itself was excellent.

The bathroom light will turn off after 20 minutes if no one is in the bathroom. When I stay in a motel ALL the lights are on ALL the time except when I'm sleeping. That ALONE reeks of cheapness and it is HIex policy. Local mgmt has no choice.

The shower is of 80s vintage. My guess is that it is the original shower. Old and narrow. Pieces of non-slip strips on the bottom. Dirty strips. You will get clean but you will not enjoy the shower experience. I'm normal size and 5'8" and I kept bumping against the shower wall and getting twisted in the curtain.

Internet service is VERY poor. Yes, you will be able to log in to the net. No, you will not be able to go to any URL that just pops right up at home. Every one I tried to pull up took several minutes (not seconds) to come up. It would not pull up the URL for my bank at all.

This HIex has the unusual policy, normally attributed to high end hotels, of requiring cancellation no later than 3pm THE DAY BEFORE arrival. You will discover the reason for this policy if you drive about a mile farther down the street (Jefferson St) toward "Old Town". There I found the two most gorgeous Hampton Inn and Suites AND SpringHill Suites that I have ever seen. They both look like brand new castles, especially the Hampton. AND the rates are comparable to HIex. Thus the policy. No more newcomers driving into town, spotting the Hampton or the Spring Hill and immediately cancelling at the HIex.I would have done it had I not already been committed to pay for the night.

Room Tip: It is quiet on the front and on the third floor (and I made sure to get a front room, based on other...

Stayed here 5 days for my daughter's wedding. Room was clean and quite comfortable. The bathtub was peeling but that wasn't that big of deal. You could walk on the carpet without your feet turning black, unlike the next place we stayed. Quiet as well, didn't hear a lot of noise but we were on the 3rd floor. Good parking situation.

The breakfast is outstanding. No Continental Breakfast here! There's hot dishes, great coffee, breads, fruits, yogurt. Great way to start the day. Service was excellent. Adequate towels, etc. There's a laundry room available if you need to throw in a load of wash as well.

One note, the internet is horrendous. We couldn't get on several times, even to check email or look for something, but if you really need Wi-Fi they do provide one downstairs.

The only thing I would say is that the pool and spa are pretty small and there were no umbrellas to get out of the sun if you wanted to hang out by the pool, but it wasn't a big issue, because we were so busy with the wedding and going to a couple wineries that we only spent a little time by the pool.

They have a fitness center, 1 treadmill, 1 bike and some weights. I used it several times and it was always empty but clean, providing towels and water.

I would have no qualms about staying here again. It's close to everything, about 8 minutes to grocery stores, etc so very convenient. Very comfortable.

Room Tip: Make sure to try the cinnamon rolls for breakfast. Yummy.

A quick overnight trip to Temecula with friends that chose this property. Stayed one night that was apparently sold out thus making the rate quite high for a Holiday Inn Express. It was clean and had friendly staff. The room was decent but average. The complimentary breakfast was adequate but not made-to-order.
Some rooms face the adjacent freeway. If you are sensitive to noise, ask for a room facing away from the freeway.

Frankly, it was way over priced (+$200) for an average "economy" room, a marginal breakfast, with freeway noise.

First off, I rate this very good, but the four star is somewhat misleading. It is not a four star hotel - but it is a very good Holiday Inn Express grade hotel. The room was small, but comfortable, clean and well maintained. The hotel in general is small, comfortable, clean and well maintained. It has a small exercise room, and an outdoor pool.

To compare this to a true four star hotel is inappropriate - it is not nor does it claim to be. But, for travel, weekend getaway, or as in our case a wedding, it serves the purpose.

The breakfast was surprisingly good. Eggs (sometimes scrambled, sometimes cheese omelets), sticky buns, yogurt, some fruit along with cereals were on the buffet.

The staff was friendly and accommodating.

The only downside is the wifi was poor - very slow and weak signal. We were just checking email, and looking up some local attractions and directions, so we didn't demand much, but it was very slow.

If I was in the area again, I would stay here. There aren't really any better hotels in the area, except for some of the vineyards outside of town have resort accommodations.

Room Tip: This hotel, along with many others in the area, Hug Interstate 15. As others have commented. if poss...

My wife and I stayed the night at this hotel over the weekend. We had a third floor room. The rooms were clean and it came with its own air conditioner which made the temp. just like we wanted. The small buffet was surprisingly good. The beds were nice and parking was easy. Although we had a view of the freeway, we never heard it due to the room having.........wait for it, not one but 2 dual pane windows! I went to open the window to obtain some fresh air and found I had to open two different windows. Wow, I was impressed. The only noise we heard was a small humming coming from the A/C. There was a nice size flat screen television in the room and the water pressure in the shower was amazing. This is definitely not the Holiday Inn my father knew. The cost was just under $200 but when you look at the amenities (Jacuzzi, gym, buffet, etc.) it was worth it. It was so comfortable we asked for a late check out which was granted. I would recommend this place to my family and friends.

Room Tip: There's really no bad place in the hotel.
