Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by watsonii Great staff. Construction mess no parking
Staff are by far the friendliest and consistently so.Pool and hot tub were dirty. Room is in serious need of an update and, thus, the price was not appropriate for the condition of the room.
Parking was tough. Had to park a few blocks away the majority of my stay. Construction is a mess so it would be fair to say that post-construction condition might prove to be an improvement. Will be returning to La Jolla in January but will not be returning to the property if construction is not completed.
I would definitely return if complete, however as we (my family and I) truly enjoyed the staff and some of the other guests.
I am with hope that the room we stayed in will be refurbished once the main building's construction is completed.
If you are staying for one or two nights, the hotel is adequate.
Again, GREAT staff. I couldn't say enough about them. Kudos to the management for hiring and keeping them happy as they were the highlight of our stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by slw1 great place right near beach
lovely simple hotel right near the beach, few minutes walk; great breakfast with all the basics; rooms a bit worn out but comfortable. some of the rooms in the front are extremely noisy from street traffic, had to move room.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mike100000000 Great Service
The service was friendly and accommodating and the Valet service made parking convenient. Part of the building was under construction but this didn't affect us much. The office area was temporary at the time we were there but this didn't affect us as the staff was always available when we needed them. Also our room wasn't affected at all by any construction noise or construction worker traffic. The location of this Holiday Inn is excellent as it is in easy walking distance to the ocean (about 2-3 blocks) and is in a good neighborhood for walking. There's a good Chinese restaurant about a block away that we ate at and also a Mexican restaurant about a block away and other eateries close by. There are other beaches a short drive away. Down town San Diego and the airport are within a half hour in moderate traffic. Overall a great location for us!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Perspicacious Look to stay elsewhere
Staff not too friendly. One of the two keys given didn't work. TV doesn't completely turn to face bed so you have to watch it at an angle. The toilet is in the corner of the bathroom where the wall is angled in so you can't sit straight to do your business. Not enough pillows. CONSTRUCTION STARTED IN THE EARLY AM AND CONTINUED ALL DAY SO NO REST OR RELAXATION POSSIBLE! PARKING IS HORRIBLE! I would not recommend staying at this Hol Inn Ex.
