Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 245 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Choice in the North San Diego area. The hotel is clean and well-maintained. The rooms are also in great condition. Staff is excellent. The room rate is about what you would expect for the area, especially relatively close to the beach. November 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cleanliness of Grounds Your grounds keepers could pay more attention to the litter of cigarette butts every where and there was trash left by visitor stays that were not policed and picked up as often as they could be in the garden areas, and parking lot The trash cans were filled to the brim Thank you for the doggie bags for clean up so handy and sanitary but again the dumping container was filled to the brim November 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Personal attention Because we stay at IHG Cardiff by the Sea often, we are remembered by the staff. We always get a handicap accessible room and usually the same one. Everything is always clean and well maintained. November 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great spot to stay This hotel is great. So easy to get to and well-appointed. The staff is super. The mexican restaurant connected to the gas station next door is open 24 hours and is awesome! Enjoy your stay. October 30, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Location, location, location Having never been to the area I struggled with where to stay. We were so happy with our decision. Great location just off the interstate, easy on, easy off. Located near the beach, Target, dining. Two convenience stores next door - which can be both good and bad but we did not have any problems. The hotel staff was great. We had forgotten toothpaste, no problem. The breakfast selection was good, pancakes, fruit, eggs, etc. We did not have time to use the poor but it looked nice. We did use the laundry facilities daily and they were clean. I have already decided to stay here again when we return. October 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great location and excellent service, value The Holiday Inn Express Encinitas-Cardiff Beach is conveniently located right off I-5 at the Birmingham exit in Encinitas. The facility looks like it is kept in good shape, the lobby is open and inviting - with a big screen TV. The Great Room where breakfast is provided is large enough to serve a number of customers at once - plus there's room in the lobby if necessary. Our room was clean and quiet - no freeway noise could be heard. I would say "cue the crickets" - but they couldn't be heard either. It was great to stay in a place that is located so close to the Torrey Pines State Preserve and beach. Plus the historic Del Mar Race Track is nearby. There are nice restaurants just minutes away along the Pacific Coast Highway in Encinitas. This place gets a recommendation from me. October 2, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Southern Cal Business Trip This was a satisfactory hotel for one night on my way from Long Beach to Tijuana. The location is easy to find but nothing spectacular to look at just off the I-5. It was convenient and affordable for my purposes. October 1, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by So so. Not worth the price I paid Average typical Holiday Inn Express. Easy access to freeway since it is right on I5. Short commute to amenities. Room is dated. Staff very friendly and helpful. Time to renovate in my opinion otherwise a typcial expectation of what to receive. Had much nicer hotels for the same price in Cardiff, Del Mar area.
