Stayed at this hotel for 5 days. Close to business sites at Sorrento Valley & just minutes away from Carmel Valley, LaJolla & the coast. This hotel is very close to great eateries like Opera Cafe, Come on In Cafe, & Chilli's & many other venues. The staff is very accommodating, friendly and helpful. The warm breakfasts there are great, the rooms also have alot of space. Enjoyed my stay there...I highly recommend this hotel!

I was absolutely astounded at the quality of service at this location. Having very recently traveled to Japan and been fortunate enough to stay at luxury hotels in that country, the accommodation to my needs at this Holiday Inn Express was all the more impressive. Thank you Cece!

Stayed at this hotel for one night before moving to Southern part of San Diego. Wish we could stay here longer :) Great location off the highway next to a Chilis restaurant; a little over 10 minutes drive to La Jolla shores and downtown. Very warm, smiling and friendly welcome at the reception; felt at home right away. Merian at the front desk was extremely nice and deserves special mention. Our room was huge with a large king bed (with two sets of soft and hard pillows!!), work desk and a small couch. The TV looked a little dated and could be up for an upgrade though.. Breakfast was pretty good comprising of scrambled eggs, sausages, biscuits and gravy in addition to the standard stuff.. Overall we loved our short 1-night stay. Would love to come back here..

Stayed here last weekend while visiting zoo and museum. The king room was adequately furnished, clean and well-kept. The microwave and mini-fridge are a real plus. The breakfast buffet exceeded our expectations with eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits and gravy along with fruit, pastries, cereal, and juices. There is something for every member of your family. The buffet room gets a little crowded in the morning but people finish up quickly and a table can be found. The buffet attendant Martin works hard at keeping food items well stocked.
We will stay again if we can find a different room. We stayed in room 218 and we could hear our neighbor's shower as if they were in our room. It was loud and noisy. If you are an earlier riser than you should be okay. But if you are trying to sleep in, well be prepare to be awakened.

Very clean and comfortable place and extremely reasonably priced. I stay here very often and this is one of my preferred places. In addition to the place, the people here are fantastic - especially the manager, Elisa Santos! I stayed here last week and there was a power outage in the area which wasn't the hotel's fault. Because of this there was no hot water and I couldn't take a shower. I was expecting only a partial refund but the manager issued a full refund! Very pleasantly surprised!

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Very niced updated Decor. Double room was very large, with a nice sitting area, and large bathroom. Showers were nice, beds were very comfy with a selection of pillows. Breakfast was included in the rate, and was pretty decent, eggs and waffles available. All in all, we really felt we got our money's worth. We spent 1 night here before spending 3 nights at the nearby Marriott Courtyard (as part of a wedding party). Between the two, I would definitely choose the Holiday Inn Express. The Marriott was more expensive, and didn't include breakfast.
