Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 89 reviewers.
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
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Feels like home! Enjoy staying there as a frequent business traveler. Pleasant and helpful staff willing to go that extra mile to make sure you are comfortable! Manager Andrew is great and always remembers you and is so accomodating. I appreciate all his extra efforts! Great location so close to the 5 and beaches! Highly recommend a stay there. Enjoy!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cardiff. By the sea Easy location off the freeway and just down the road to the beach. Great value and for those with small-mid size pets they are pet friendly with a very reasonable one time fee for the whole visit. Lobby and reception area is nice and bright. wifi available. Free breakfast is very convenient and the staff is pleasant but non intrusive so you feel very relaxed there . . Just like home. Btw for those who need a quick meal, there is a small Mexican take out right next door. The 0.99 fish tacos are awesome! November 27, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz Other than the elephant that kept running back and forth in the room above us, it was a good stay... November 18, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean and comfortable We love this hotel ,we have been staying here since it opened and have not had one complaint October 28, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Personal Service Our stay at Holiday Inn Express at Cardiff by the Sea was a great experience when it comes to value and service. Holly gave us personal attention, along with a great location, exceptional dinner and a wonderful stay. We will stay at this location again. October 22, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Friendly knowledgeable staff The front desk staff was wonderful. They recognized me whenever I walked past the front desk and asked pertinent questions about my day and my travels in the area. I clearly was not "just another guest" to them!! October 18, 2012
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Very clean and good location, great staff. Liked every thing about this hotel except for the barking dog next door. Dog barked on and off for about 2/3 hours. October 6, 2012
