Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Blanca97 Excellent Hotel
Great location-less than 15 away from Fashion Valley and 25 minutes away from San Marcos. Bed was comfortable. Rooms was a little stuffy but that was easy fixed by turning on the AC. Front desk staff was friendly. Morning breakfast was excellent and the waitresses were very nice. Highly recommend this hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Yoshi77 Hoping for so much more....
We stayed here because it was much closer to Comic Con then the hotel we stayed at in Poway the prior year. However, I really wished we stayed at the other hotel. It was much more comfortable. While this hotel is fairly clean and the staff is friendly, the bed was hard and uncomfortable. We barely got any sleep and were exhausted at Comic Con, what a bummer! The free breakfast was excellent the first morning, Thursday, but was awful on Friday morning. It was almost like the stuff was left out all day Thursday and served Friday morning. The eggs were blah, bagels were stale, and the country potatoes were WAY under cooked...almost raw! The hostess was very pleasant and helpful though. They seem to have ample parking, but maybe that because they made the spaces smaller to fit more cars. Anyway, I personally would not stay here again...but to each is own.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PanchoVillaJr Highly Recommend
I don't know how old this hotel is, but it looks brand new. Our room looked so good, it should be on the cover of a magazine. Everything at this hotel was perfect. Adequate parking, security, friendly staff, fitness room, A/C. The best part was the complimentary breakfast...it was better than IHOP.... this was a full breakfast, with a staff that made you feel like you were at a restaurant. They filled our coffee cups for us. This is what every hotel should be like and what others should aspire to be.
I strongly recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by UnivMom Comfortable bed and nice labeling of pillows.
It was so nice to have a choice of pillows and to have the pillows labeled as to softness or firmness. Next time we would probably ask for two queen beds. We had two full beds, but the adults no longer sleep in such a cozy width.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RH129 Great place to rest
Booked this hotel as it was close to the university for my daughters volleyball tournament. When i checked in I was impressed at how nice the lobby was set up, nice, clean and spacious. The young lady that checked us in was helpful, very polite and efficient.
The room was nice and appeared to have a modern, updated look. It was clean, smelled fresh and was larger than I expected it to be with plenty of room to relax and move around. The beds (we had 2 double beds) were comfy and included both soft and firm pillows on each bed, i was able to get a good nights rest.
The bathroom was clean, nicely appointed and looked to have been recently remodeled. It also included plenty of towels which is always a plus.
Included in the price was a free hot breakfast in the adjoining restaurant, eggs, potatoes, meats, breads fresh juices and plenty of fresh fruits. It was a blessing to not have to find something off site to eat as we are usually rushed on tournament days.
All in all a perfect nights stay. Great property with a nice friendly attentive staff. large clean rooms and great amenities. I will stay here again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Marine23 Failed to make up room. . .
Great location and room. Oly checked us in late 2am and was terrific. Sleep in late because of arrival time, missed breakfast, out of room by 12:30. Returned to room 7:30pm to change for our event and found room had not been attended to, unacceptable. Oly was on front desk and sent towls, water and someone to strighten up room, she saved the trip.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ForeverGuest Well above average
I stay here very often. The staff is outstanding. The rooms and the hotel is very clean, comfortable and very well maintained. The value is very good. The only areas in need of improvement are the cable tv service, the guest business center and the laundry room facilities. The cable tv service needs to be upgraded to digital. The flat screen tvs are nice and HD compatible, although the service is only analog. The guest business center has very old computers and should be upgraded, it would be a minor cost. And finally the laundry room only has 2 washers and dryers and it seems that there is always one of the washers or dryers out of service. Even with these minor issues I still am very satisfied overall with the hotel.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RangersMom Will never stay at a Holiday Inn again
I am a frequent traveler and this was my first time staying at a Holiday Inn. My daughter's soccer team was playing at State Cup nearby and our team stayed at the Holiday Inn San Diego - North Miramar. We knew the hotel was sold out as we had booked some of the last rooms available. On our first night, we went to the Spiral Lounge and Restaurant to eat. We were a large party and overwhelmed the poor waiter who appeared to be the only one working in the restaurant besides the cook. It took a very long time to get our food but we thought maybe they didn't staff up because they weren't expecting to have many people in the restaurant (even though they knew the hotel was sold out.
The following day, while at the pool there was a family who was looking for some towels and they were told by the staff that they had already brought out 200 towels for the day and weren't bring anymore. Later that evening, a couple of us went to the lounge to have a drink. We noticed there was another large group in the restaurant and a few others throughout the restaurant and lounge. Once again, there appeared to be only one waiter having to take care of the whole place (the poor guy from the night before).
The following morning, we went down to the breakfast buffet at 9:20am. The buffet was supposed to be open until 10:00am. When we got there, I asked if they had anymore cereal and was told they were out. We then noticed there was no more bacon and most of the juice was gone. I asked a server if they were going to be bringing out anymore bacon and was rudely told "We aren't bringing anything else out. People are only supposed to eat once." I said, "We just got here. This is the first time we are eating. It's only 9:20am and the buffet is supposed to be open until 10:00am." She just looked at me, shrugged her shoulders and said, "We can't bring anything else."
On top of the horrible service, the beds were very hard and the pillows were lumpy.
I am the travel manager for our team and selected this hotel based on the recommendation from the tournament. So I felt really bad for all of the families as they complained they were just as uncomfortable in their beds as I was and were frustrated by the fact that the hotel didn't plan their staffing or food for a sold out weekend. We were all very disappointed by the responses we received from various staff members as they didn't seem to care about our experience.
We have many personal family trips and team trips coming over the next several years and none of them will include another stay at a Holiday Inn.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jazzeme BED DELIMMA
My overall experience was outstanding. Deanna at the front desk was accommodating, in getting me a room and all of the other staff were kind and helpful from when i checked in until i left.
My issue was the bed. The room was clean except when I stepped into it i smelled a mildew order. i walked around sniffing for where the smell was coming from and it ended up being the bedding and pillows. When i arrived, I was functioning on minimal sleep and was so exhausted that i needed to take a nap. i took a nap and then went out for the evening. it was a long evening and although the bedding had its issue, i had to go to sleep. my son on the other had chose to sleep on the couch because he could not bear the smell ~ he is 6'1". i didn't want to make waves though. Subsequently, later the next day i had a sore throat. in the future, i will probably mention the issue, and more than likely bring lysol and/or my own bedding.
i should have written sooner, and i had every intention to do so. but i am writing now, and i hope this assist you with your quality control.
like i said initially, the overall stay was great ~ especially the staff.
i lived in mira mesa for thirteen years until recently, and never had the opportunity to stay at this holiday inn. i am more than likely to return as well as recommend it to others.
thank you for your hospitality

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MK93023 OK, but should have been better.
Pros: The room and hotel in general were comfortable, clean, and quiet. The breakfast buffet was very good with friendly service.
Cons: The elderly lady who checked us in took a very long time to perform this simple job, even though we were the only customers. I'd hate to see her deal with a bus-load of tourists ! The TV didn't work, and neither did the phone next to the bed. We complained and these were fixed the next day.

Everyone in our group agreed that the hotel rooms, hotel amenities were are well maintained and easily accessible. The staff that we interacted with were very courteous, professional and helpful. Breakfast was excellent and had a good variety of nutritious choices including fresh fruit and, there was something for everyone (even our most picky eaters).
Thank you again, we really enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Miramar. We will definitely be in contact with you for future tournaments in your area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AMTMike Always stay here
I have stayed at this hotel for business more than 2 weeks out of every month since December of 2011. The staff is what makes this hotel so great. They are always helpful and pleasant.
In addition to an outstanding staff the hotel has many other great aspects about it. The free breakfast is better than any other hotel I have stayed at. Full hot breaskfast including eggs, saugage and bacon, french toast and waffles, as well as fruit, yogerts, pasteries and around 5 or 6 juice choices.
The rooms are comfortable and quite and always clean.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a great hotel for a very competitive price.
