    Ehhh....

    They had a decent breakfast selection. Definitely saved us from having to spend money and eat out for breakfast meals. Our beds and pillows didn't suck so that was nice. Location was good. Super close to the freeway which makes getting around easy. Airport was close too. The beach is about a 10-15 min drive.

    TINY swimming pool. It's nothing like the photo that you see online. Not even close. Poor sound insulation. If you plan on staying there, make sure you get your room on the top floor (3). Otherwise whoever is above you will be sure to wake you up when they start moving around. We saw a cockroach in the hallway right outside of our room. That was disturbing to say the least. We made sure to shake everything out before leaving so we didn't take anything with us. We wouldn't stay there again and wished we would've booked somewhere else.

    Spotless, cheerful staff, great breakfasts - and especially liked the 'breakfast lounge' room being open late at night, for coffee or tea & TV

    Good night's sleep

    Compared to other hotels we have stayed at, my wife said she got a good night's sleep here. She likes this hotel better then the Homewood Suites in Mission Valley. She also liked the breakfast which begins at 6:30am, ideal for the business traveler. This hotel is close to the freeway with spacious free parking. We stopped here on the way to Mexico. Although we didn't eat or shop at them, the hotel is near a 7-11, two Asian restaurants and a Mexican Restaurant, and that would also be ideal for the business traveler as well. The room also had a chair and desk, an ironing board, a steam iron, a microwave, a fridge, and many electric outlets to charge phones and computers. It's wheelchair accessible with elevator.

    There isn't much of a view, but for our needs, that was fine. We just needed a place to sleep.

    This is a sad representation of a Holiday Inn Expr

    Take a tricycle to park because the parking is so small and cramped that you can barely get your car turned down a lane and most everyone has to have a spotter standing outside their car to get the car out of a slot. I could not turn off the bathtub facet, so it ran all four days I was there. The cabinets look like they were bought from IKIA and put together by a chimpanzee since the doors did not fit right and the drawers would not push all the way in. The room was extremely small for a Holiday Inn Express.

    Disappointed

    Friendly staff when we arrived, however checked out and mentioned the none warm water and the gunk and front desk could care less, tried to inform them for the next guest. Won't be returning.

    Hard to get to property, shady area parking lot next to dealerships, no warm water in the room, black sand like gunk came out of sink when toilet flushed. Glad it was only a short stay! Very disappointed!
