Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by IHG Traveler 1 Little Problems
In general, we had a good stay.Great HIX breakfast and nice decor. The location of this hotel is great!
However, we had numerous little problems with our room:
--Heater unit didn't function
--Lamp outlets for charging were worn and couldn't function. (We had to unplug the television and mini-fridge to charge devices)
--Room not serviced one day
--Dried paint in middle of carpet
If you plan to do work at this hotel, don't expect to do it in the lobby or breakfast room.There is only one plug on the entire main floor that is near a workable table (in lobby) and each morning, there was already someone else camped there.
Fitness Center equipment was either non-functional or in bad condition. Water jug was empty and no towels.
Some staff showed care and concern but ultimately nothing was done to fix the heat (at least).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cat lover 179 Great place to stay
Clean and the staff was friendly. The hotel is close to the beach and lots of restaurants near the beach. The little Mexican restaurant next door was really good and cheap. They are open 24 hours.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Neuro Doc Holiday Inn Express Encinitas-Cardiff Beach Area
Unfortunately, my stay had to be cut short because of the blizzard in Maryland. Cardiff was beautiful and I had intended to stay longer but had to take a flight out within 24 hours of my arrival. The reason for the trip plus the change in flight plans made it difficult to fully relax, though I'm sure under different circumstances, it would have been great. Your breakfast was just what the doctor ordered!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 average
The hotel that I stay is OK overall. The breakfast is lack of vegetarian option. Room internet speed is up and down sometimes. Bathroom is a little small than the other hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AZ DRY HEAT A gem of a North San Diego County property!
I always like to stay at this property. It is well located, a short drive to beaches, fine restaurants, adn business amenities of the area.
Rooms are always clean and well kept (although some of the sofa sleepers look a bit aged). Rooms have good lamp lighting with sufficient plug in areas for chargers and computers/phones.
Front desk staff are friendly and helpful. They are always appropriate with my service dog, and seem cognizant of laws regarding them. They are very willing to find rooms away from the freeway, and with good natural light (some downstairs rooms are dark, due to a hillside and retaining wall).
The breakfast room IS large enough for the property, and is very well stocked. The pancake machine is much faster than the waffle makers found in many hotel breakfast buffets. There is food for every diet, and the attendant is charming and gracious.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Had a great experience
Great staff. Very friendly and they remembered my name. They went out of their way at several different points to help me with questions I had. Every time I come to San Diego the past three years I have stayed at this hotel, and will continue to do so.
