This property has seen better days. Yes, the management is trying to keep it in acceptable condition. But what it really needs is a renovation. Given that it is located in upscale Rancho Bernardo, I[More] had higher expectations.
Additionally, one night there was a diesel truck parked practically outside my window with its engine idling all night long. Boo![Less]
Best Deal in Town
For a convenient affordable enjoyable stay this Holiday Inn is great in San Diego. Enjoy the Savings and a Great Breakfast![Less]
Good location for the business meetings we had, the hotel experience was very good. Breakfast buffet was comprehensive and fresh.[Less]
Good spot to rest
By John in SoCal
I had a race starting at 5:00am in Imperial Beach/Coronado, and needed a place to get a few hours sleep.
This hotel was great for that; so I'm not sure how the pool, fitness center, and breakfast[More] where, but they were probably just fine.
The Holiday Inn Express is a good, clean, decent, well maintained place to crash at least for me, and I recommend it
The one thing - and it's not really their issue - the hotel A/C units turn on and off all night. It would be MUCH MUCH better if the fan would just stay on all night. The constant on/off wakes you up a little. All of these units seem to work this way, it's frustrating.[Less]
I stayed for two weeks for business and leisure. My room became home quickly. Great customer service. Great breakfast choice. Rooms always clean well. I felt safe and secure. I would highly recommend.[Less]
Quick Business Trip
Wonderful experience from the moment we walked through the door. This was my first time traveling for business and staying at this Holiday Inn Express was a breeze. The hotel was very clean and the[More] amenities provided are excellent. I will most definitely be returning to this hotel when in the area again.[Less]
Location can't be beat, breakfast good.
I chose this hotel primarily for the location and the breakfast. It gets dark by 5:30 in Nov in North County San Diego, and so it's important for me to stay somewhere that has some restaurants[More] nearby, and some places you can get outside in the morning before work. Travelling alone, I chose this location because of the easy access to the beach just south, which is also the "dog beach". It's a nice walk with some hills available, beautiful view, and a nice rock you can sit on to watch the surf, surfers, and watch the dogs play, maybe read a book. With people visiting to walk their dog in the morning there are enough people around to feel safe, and honestly dog people are usually approachable and friendly (as are the dogs hah!).
It's also convenient to be able to grab some breakfast with protein before heading into the office rather than just breads[Less]
Great location in Solana Beach
We absolutely loved staying at this hotel. It appeared to be quite new and was maintained extremely well.
The bed was very comfortable, the king room we had was clean and well laid out and the HVAC[More] was quiet and functioned well.
The only thing I would do differently, if this were my hotel, would be to provide different balcony chairs. They were hard plastic folding chairs like is used in some classroom style meeting rooms. Something more comfortable to place on the balcony would have been appreciated.
The staff was friendly and professional and every housekeeper, even those with limited English skills made an effort to speak with us and meet our needs. If we have a reason to return to the Solana Beach / Del Mar area, we will certainly stay at this hotel.[Less]
Great location for food and work
By AG King
Location great for Work in Delmar. Disappointed with check in service. Food needs work. Turkey sausage tasted like rubber and biscuits were horrible.[Less]
