Great hotel and fantastic restaurants nearby. The ocean is 5 minutes away with a great beach and plenty of surfers to watch.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by KathyK-LB Disappointed in Encinitas
I've always stayed in and recommended Holiday Inn Express; however, this could make me change my mind. Granted it was a busy holiday weekend I was very disappointed in the quality of the hotel, especially for this area. The overall condition was just run down and dirty.
The staff was pleasant but not as professional as other Holiday Inns I've stayed at. Breakfast was good and the beds and pillows were comfortable, but that's about all I can say that's positive for this location.

This was nice and close to the beach and the third time that my family has stayed at this location. We loved the variety of breakfast foods and enjoyed or brief stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by astro ace great service
The terrific service from check in to check out was outstanding. You should bottle your customer service and sell it. I travel often and generally get good service but this experience was over the top. I stay at this hotel every year and service has always been good but this time oh my, give them all an ataboy. Holly was one whose name I remember. She was truly outstanding in every way.
On Fri night we had one of our party that was way too loud and he should have been quited. I know he had been drinking and he can be a pain. The clerk just let it go. I dont know if that was the right move but there were no incidents as a result.

We were looking for reasonably priced hotel to spend the night . This hotel certainly fit the bill. The staff were friendly, the room was clean, and the free breakfast matched anything you could get at a regular restaurant. We will certainly be staying here the next time we are in the neighborhood.

The hotel is in a great location to San Elijo State Beach. The only problem that we had were ants in the bathroom that took two days for the staff to remedy. the breakfast was good however the staff had to be flagged down to get the breakfast tables cleaned. they were responsive when asked. We would return to this location again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lala830 Great location and excellent customer service!
This place had a great location, very close to downtown Encinitas. Breakfast was okay, not the greatest selection. The highlight of our stay is the front desk. I can't remember her name but she looked like she was of Filipina decent. She was friendly and was very helpful with answering questions....since that was the first time we've stayed at the hotel. Overall, a good place to stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Colorado2014 Friendly, attentive staff and great location
The hotel is a great location to everything. We were in town for the San Diego fair which was less than 5 miles away. The beach was close as well as lots of food and shopping choices. The hotel grounds have a very urban feel being located right next to the Interstate, concrete surrounding the pool and no views. The breakfast staff were very attentive and friendly. There was a wide variety of choices at breakfast. The price was unmatched by any other hotels near by.

Cold/watery. The only thing you're doing here is taking up more of my time trying to answer questions I've answered twice before in thei critique.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JERSEY GIRL50 COMFORTABLE ROOM AND GREAT SERVICE
WE HAD A VERY LOVELY STAY AT THIS HOTEL. THE BED WAS SUPER COMFY WITH VERY SOFT SHEETS, GREAT MATTRESS AND PLENTY OF PILLOWS OF DIFFERENT SOFTNESS. THE ROOM WAS VERY LARGE ALSO. THE BATH TOWELS WERE SOFT AND FLUFFY, UNLIKE TO MANY OTHER HOTELS. THE HOTEL IS AMAZINGLY QUIET GIVEN ITS CLOSE PROXIMITY TO THE 5 FREEWAY. THE INCLUSIVE BREAKFAST EACH MORNING WAS GREAT WITH MANY CHOICES AVAILABLE. THE STAFF AT THE DESK WERE ALL GREAT TO DEAL WITH. THEY WERE VERY INFORMATIVE ABOUT RESTAURANT CHOICES AND OTHER THINGS IN THE AREA. I FOUND THEM SO ENGAGING, FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL. THE LAST DAY, I REALIZED I LEFT MY SWEATER IN THE ROOM. IT WAS IN LOST AND FOUND AND IS ON ITS WAY BACK TO ME. OTHER TIMES THAT I HAVE LEFT THINGS, THEY WERE NEVER FOUND. THIS SPEAKS TO THE INTEGRITY OF THE HOUSEKEEPING STAFF. GREAT HOTEL WITH GREAT MANAGEMENT AND CUSTOMER SERVICE. WILL SURELY STAY AGAIN.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ns111 Good staff but poor rooms
This hotel is conveniently placed for LEGOLAND which is why we chose it. However, had some issues with rooms. The first one had ants on the nightstand, the second smelt of cigarette smoke even though this has been a non-smoking hotel for a number of years. The final room (the only one they had left) was at the far west of the hotel and closest to the highway and suffered from a great deal of traffic noise.
We also had almost no success connecting to the complementary wifi.
