Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 105 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean, comfortable, great location This hotel was a great value. Room was clean, spacious and comfortable. Hotel is in a great location and had free breakfast and parking. Will definitely stay here again. August 26, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Thank you The gentleman at the front desk when I checked in Sunday night Aug 18 was just outstanding and compassionate to the family emergency that required my stay at the hotel. Many kudos for his performance. But you make answering this survey ridiculously difficult August 24, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice hotel I spent the night here with my elderly parents. The staff was friendly and the room clean and spacious. We had a very enjoyable stay. One thing that bugs me though, and it's a personal thing, but it drives me crazy when the sheer drapes blow up when the air conditioner comes on. Besides that, everything was great! August 16, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean, Modern, Well-Located, Good Staff My two night stay for business was very comfortable, in a spacious king room with all necessary amenities. Even facing the highway, with the windows open, the steady hum of traffic was not disturbing. With the windows closed, it was hard to hear any sounds at all from outside. The staff was exceptionally helpful and cheerful, which helps make any hotel stay more pleasant. I would highly recommend this hotel. August 16, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Convient Location and Nice Facilities Good location near many popular attractions. Friendly staff and very helpful. August 14, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice hotel. The hotel, staff and breakfast were all great. the only thing I did not give an excellent rating on was the value because the hotel parking of 10 dollars a night seemed not only excessive but unnecessary. However did not ruin the experience at the hotel. August 12, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Front Desk Hollie was exceptional. She was professional, friendly, and very helpful. She set the tone for a great experience and stay. The breakfast room is small and staff did not keep everything stocked without being asked. Room was nice, roomy and comfortable with the exception of a very small bathroom with poor design of the door blocking the sink. Great location. WIFI wAs slow but we were on holiday and had our own access point with us. Found crayon under nightstand August 1, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Location Superb Customer service. The staff at the hotel went above and beyond to help me with everything from directions, recommending places to eat and were to go. Rooms were extremely quiet considering we were so close to the freeway. Hop skip and a jump to the beaches and the 5 30 seconds away. Cardiff by the Sea is awesome. Thanks for helping our family have a memorable vacation and I deeply appreciate the great Customer Service. Only negative is the parking fee, but as I quickly found out just about everywhere had a parking fee. July 29, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by dirty pool and spa areas. We stayed there one night for my sons 8th bday to go to Moonlight beach and when we got there the pool and spa were very dirty and even the following morning it still had same dirt as previous day yuk! let the front desk know and she went to tell maintaince right away. the stairways had cut out drywall and blowers going on them must have had water damage and the room had ceiling patches that was shaped like a giant kotex pad above our heads lol wouldnt reccomend this hotel. July 29, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Parking Fee I may be in the minority, but a small hotel with plenty of open space, no secure gates or fences is not a hotel that requires a 10.00 parking fee. This is an average hotel just off the freeway and the parking fee is just a money grab plain and simple. July 21, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good hotel but terrible receptionist We wanted to check in early but hotel is fully booked. Waited until 2:20PM to finally get my room but it was facing noising highway. We came out and wanted to change a quite room but had to wait good 5 minutes for receptionist to finish her personal call. Without telling our reason, she immediately asked that if we want to change different room. What is that telling you..... Assign us a worst room while save a better room to other people???? Am I a 2nd class IHG member??? July 17, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A new start Was amazed with the service and staff at this location! I had a wonderful room and my son loved it because he had room to run around. Staff was so helpful during our adventure throughout the area. There is nothing bad I can really say about this property. The beach was literally 5 minute drive and parking was not difficult. Staff made recommendations on food locations, things to do and see in the area. I will definitely return to this location! June 30, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best staff The hotel is nice but the staff is oh so friendly and knowledgeable. They were able to recommend great restaurants and other venues. June 28, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ok to sleep and go. The coffee was not even drinkable. hoow much more can I say! June 6, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Location, Great Rate! There are many hotels up and down the northern san diego coast. The holiday inn express Cardiff area is a great location with a 5 minute drive to some of the most beautiful beaches around. The staff is helpful and the breakfast is decent. I will be back! The property is close to the freeway, however, I didn't hear the noise at all June 5, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Manager and staff were wonderful. A very comfortable hotel. First, I would like to say that the Manager was so nice. I had called to see if Holiday Inn had handicap features and they do. I forgot to bring my toilet riser, and the young man managing the hotel went out shopping and brought the new one directly to our room. I think that was so kind and thoughtful.. All in all, the hotel was very clean and comfortable. We also enjoyed the breakfast every morning. We would definitely stay there in Encinitas/Cardif by the Sea. Try VG Donuts and the food and service at the Flatrock Cafe was great! May 8, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cardiff Comfort Very comfortable room and very friendly service. Because of convenient location and quality of hotel, we stay here very frequently. Breakfast service is nice with good selections. I only wish their service would extend for a longer period during the weekday mornings. April 28, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by My stay at IHG Very good that you have moved over to Bath and Body toiletries. Excellent. However, the bottles (without a cap) are still of poor quality. Also, the mouthwash bottle is not sealed now. It used to be sealed, earlier. April 23, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great relaxing weekend We found the property to be very comfortable and friendly. This our second stay here and would recommend it to others! April 12, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great place great location not far to the beach and within a short driving distance to san diego or l.a. the staff were great especially the manager it was good that pets were allowed March 17, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Do not pass up this hotel!!!! What a nice place and a dynamite staff! Starters with the check in where Holly made us sooooooo welcome. We only needed to stay two nights while our house was fumigated in Escondido. We had a lot of recommendation as to where to stay, but we REALLY made the correct choice. Thanks to all. As Arnold says, I'll be back!!! March 11, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Worst Internet Speed Ever Nice room. LOVE the bed. Excellent TV selection. Nice staff. BUT the SLOWEST internet access ever. It was like using an old dial-up. Staff said they are aware and are planning to fix??? If this is important to you then check before booking!! February 15, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sewer problems One maid was particularly friendly--she has five daughters. She went out of her way to help my sister with her grandson's needs. Lovely person who deserves a promotion. Our maid (room 119) wasn't particularly nice and acted as if it were a pain to take care of us. She deserves counseling. February 9, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice stay near the Sea We enjoyed our stay there for a week. The management has a very good staff there. It was very clean and orderly. The 5 was just there close by to get around nicely. The beach was not that far away., 5 minutes or less. We enjoyed the good Mexican food nearby. I would stay there again. February 8, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great place to stay. The staff is wonderful and the accomodations excellent. I hate to say it because then maybe next time I want to stay they will be all booked up. I have family nearby and always stay here when I visit. I have always been very pleased. The on site manager, Andrew, really knows how to run the place so everything runs smooth and tight and everybody is happy. Very friendly atmosphere. January 24, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Service with a smile This hotel was the best we discovered three years ago. Whenever in southern California we look forward to staying here. It is a very up to date, very clean, very comfortable hotel with a staff that is second to none. Andrew the manager, and Hollie the sales manager made our stay extra special. They go above and beyond to please their guests. We are already looking forward to returning in the Fall! January 16, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Experience Clean Room, comfortable beds. Spent 2 nights, room service to full expectation. Perfect for family stay with our 2 kids. Close enough to Legoland and near several kid friendly dining options. January 3, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by perfect business/ work stay Great customer service, our crew worked at night so the staff made sure we weren't disturbed during the day , always accommodating and we had everything we needed for our stay. January 2, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful Facility It was beyond what I expected, the room was just spectacular. I wish all holiday inn's looked as amazing as this one. The decor is so modern and comfortable. The bed was extremely soft too :) Even the lobby and halls are noteworthy in this holiday inn. Impressed! December 22, 2012
