Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by El Mesa reviewer Add microwaves
I had a Suite and the only thing that wasn't in there was a microwave. My stay was short enough that I didn't require one, but guests in the future might expect to have one especially in a Suite.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bdh1000 Nice hotel close to the beach
Holiday Inn La Mesa was surprisingly nice and is within walking distance to the beach. It was obviously a boutique hotel at one point and now has an interior facelift like other Holiday Inn hotels, meaning it's clean and comfortable inside. I would recommend this place for anyone visiting the San Diego area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Marc9 Comfortable and affordable
The place was clean and the staff were friendly. The bedroom in great condition and the bed was comfortable. My stay was very short (in at 11PM and out by 6:30AM), so it was really only a place to flop.

Good people but property needs a little work. I think the value was lacking. Expect more out of a Holiday Inn.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alv family Comfortable bed and great service
The room was great. We had a family room 2 adults 4 children. It larger then I expected. The only fault I could give is there is bath tub and we have small children. Breakfast is in a small restaurant and the children meals need improvement!

Muy buena experiencia desde la llegada ya que la cordialidad y amabilidad se dio desde el front desk, la habitacion fue comoda y la cama y almohadas excepcionales, fue un viaje familiar con niños por lo que es altamente recomendable para una familia

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by travelersea Very small pool
Staff were great. But, this was just a run of the mill hotel.
Air conditioning system in room had a musty smell. Biggest disappointment was the pool. I had intended to spend some time swimming and sitting around pool. Well the pool was so small it wasn't even worth swimming in. Location of pool was unattractive and I had no desire to sit arouind this.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by brian 55 Dissapointed with the room
I was dissapointed with the room. The padded headboard on the bed was torn, bathroom floor tiles broken up in several places, the carpet was wet around the air conditioning unit, and smelled bad. (probably due to wet carpet)
I really didn't feel like I got my money's worth !

All was good, except for the noise.
Ice manchine was too close to my room and made a loud noise as well as the A/C Unit.
Other than that, it was a good stay

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by djc19 Quiet and very comfortable
Had a very pleasant experience staying here. Quiet room and very comfortable bed. Brought my own pillow. Staff pleasant and responsive. Very friendly and made you feel welcome and appreciated. Only complaint was the restaurant food could be better. It wasn't that inexpensive and the quality should be better. Ants in the restaurant around the tables. People had to be moved. This can happen, so I really don't hold that against them.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by CaliforniaMomsy53 Great Staff - Problems with Room
Staff was nice and friendly and helpful. There were 2 holes in the wall above the bed -- looked like bullet holes. No bathtub. Refrigerator was broken. Forgotten wake-up call. Holiday Inns have been a staple in my family's traveling plans, but this hotel was disappointing... I drove 4 hours in bumper-to-bumper traffice from Los Angeles to La Mesa. It was disappointing that the refrigerator was broken (I had perishables)... and I was looking forward to a nice, hot bath.... and there was no bathtub. Had to get up at 6:30am to go to a training seminar... I did not get the wakeup call I had requested the night before... luckily the morning light woke me up.

I was very pleased with my stay at the Holiday Inn, La Mesa. I was appreciative of the cleanliness of the room and the entire hotel. I felt safe with the parking and in my room. It's close to a lot of stores. Staff is very polite, upbeat and helpful. I have nothing negative to say about my stay at the hotel.

THE HOTEL WAS CLEAN, CONVENIENT AND EASY TO ACCESS OTHER RESTAURANTS. WAS DISAPPOINTED THERE WAS NO HOT TUB. MY MOTHER STAYED ON THE BOTTOM FLOOR AND SHE COMMENTED HOW NOISY IT WAS DURING THE NIGHT AND EARLY MORNING. I WOULDN'T RECOMMEND STAYING ON THE FIRST FLOOR ADJACENT TO THE LOBBY.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Edmund K One of the Quietest Holiday Inn Hotels
Stayed for 1 night prior to a workshop. Located in a quiet residential neighbourhood. To reach hotel, one would certainly need a vehicle. Wifi signals were strong and was FOC. Even though my room faced the carpark, it was quiet. The only negative was the unavailability of free newspaper which I had got to enjoy in other IHG hotels. The room air-conditioner probably will need servicing to eliminate noise. Overall it is a good hotel for a mid-stop or for business travellers to the La Mesa area.

Room and bed were adequate. But noise from heavy walking in the room above easily conducts to room. Woke me up.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by seattlekids Comfortable beds and friendiest staff
The beds and bedding were so comfortable. My kids had the best sleep.
The staff is great and so friendly. The front desk staff are courteous and attentive and very welcoming and friendly.
We are big Holiday Inn fans.
Our only complaint is better lighting in the rooms and particularly in the bathroom. But we understand the need to use energy efficient lighting .
The only reason our sleep quality was not top notch was due to hallway noise (inconsiderate guests). We understand that this is not the fault of the hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Barb G Nice clean hotel
Very nice, clean hotel. I was there for a funeral so did not use any amenities. They were close to mall, stores so was easy to get anything we forgot to bring. We had multiple families staying for the funeral. It would have been nice if they had some kind of small bereavement or multiple family discount.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Robert the traveller Its fine
I stayed here for 3 nights. Upon check-in, they gave me keys to the wrong room. The keys didn't work, so they made new keys, which got me into a room that was already occupied (nobody in there, but lots of luggage opened). They got me into my proper room, sincerely apologized for the issue and gave me coupons for free breakfast at the hotel (worth $20 each so $60 total). However, the coupons don't cover tax, so my "free" breakfast was still like $2 each day.
The room is fine, its quiet there, the entire hotel is non-smoking. this hotel is on the highway frontage road so its back far enough from the highway to be quiet. There is a shopping mall up the street with lots of restaurants, starbucks, movie theatres, etc.
The food in the hotel restaurant is very good quality (surprising for a hotel restaurant which are usually only eaten at by "trapped" guests without a car to go elsewhere). Breakfast was excellent. I had a very good ribeye steak one night there. They only have one waitress, so it can be a delay in getting served.
overall, I would stay here again.

Hotel itself is fine. Clean, comfortable, friendly front desk. The restaurant is awful. Service and food. Did not get what I ordered, salmon overcooked and dry. Asked for tarter sauce which did not come for 10-15 minutes. I am sure there must be other decent restaurants in the area, but was too tired to venture out.
