Good location and good value for the hotel. Staff was very nice, brought pool towels out to us so we didn't have to wait in the lobby and alerted us that they had a large bus group so we could go to breakfast when it wouldn't be as busy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Best Holiday Inn Express Ever!
I travel weekly from Texas to California and generally stay in Holiday Inn Express hotels up and down the coast of CA. The staff upgraded my room to a suite with separate LR and Kintchenette. Very nice to have when you spend some much time on the road! Gym was nice. Room clean. So convenient to have microwave and fridge in the room. Very quiet. Did not eat breakfast since I was able to stock my mini fridge and eat my Greek yogurt and gluten free oatmeal in the room. Staff very nice. Will stay on my next business trip here.

I would Defitnetly recommend this hotel - it was very clean , very quiet, and very friendly staff. We had a few issues it was the same issue over and over it was the key to the door on the outside and to the room. One would work on the outside but the other would work on the door so you had to carry both keys until they finally fixed it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by rtsmith81 HIE in Escondido CA
After over 25 years of great HIE experiences I have to give this one a less than excellent for one reason only: The bed was terrible. Mattress felt as if was stuffed with cookie dough. When we looked under the mattress cover there was a crease in the mattress as if someone was sitting on the bed, and no one was. If they put expiration dates on mattresses, I am sure this one would have been expired a long time ago. Did't get to sleep till 4AM and that was after I moved to the sofa. Manager did give me credit for rewards points that I used for the room so they are accommodating. But they have to replace that bed. Everything else was fine, as I have always expected for HIE. Yes, I would recommend this hotel but stay away from room 201.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hungryhippo1 Clean, comfortable and convenient
I was here for a meeting nearby, and this location was great. The staff were friendly upon check-in and throughout the stay. Room was decently sized and comfortable. The breakfast is the best part! I picked this location solely on the option of breakfast as I had to leave early in the morning and didn't want to spend time looking for a place to eat. Breakfast options are endless (eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, waffles, bagels, cereal, etc). It's no 5 star restaurant but it's good. Definitely recommend.

From our entrance we were treated kindly. When we got to our room we were surprised and happy to find a suite. When we had problems with our key card you helped at once. The hotel is in a good location to find places to eat. If we go back to Escondido we will stay at your hotel.

The hotel had a great food, comfortable bed and nice size rooms. The breakfast was good and enjoyed the different varieties it provided. The only con was that the internet worked but would dropped the signal a lot during the night.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OCrabby Best HI Express I have ever stayed in service wise
I stay at hotel 48 weeks out of the year , most years. This HI Express ranks in the top 10 for me. It was the service. As a Platinum member they let me check in early with no problems, manager bought water for all the guests, every day . I had 1-2 per day. What a concept give me a 5 cent bottle of water instead of trying to sell me a dollar bottle. Every day if I wanted it. I work early so they gave me milk and yogurt for my room. Room was clean and everyone very helpful . !!!!
If other Holiday Inns don't copy they are crazy. The water alone made my stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Chief Mac Good Service, aging small rooms
Overall it was an adequate place to sleep and recharge, not extravagant in any way. Clean and well run, the problems are in the design and infrastructure.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by petunia rose Great service
The staffs at all of the HIE made some extra effort to assist and or give directions for places we needed to go. Wine opener? Check, lost child? they were on so helpful. Need orange juice after the breakfast room is closed? No problem! Those are just a few of the things I remember.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Marc033 Nice Hotel
Hotel was very convenient and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful during check in. The room was a bit small with an external closet/wardrobe in the corner. Bathroom was also a bit small without much counter space. However, it was clean and comfortable overall. The biggest eye sore was the stained and dirty carpets in the hallways. This was surprising as the rest of the hotel seemed well maintained but the hall carpets were filthy.
Breakfast was surprising good and well served by the staff. Also liked it when I saw night security patrolling the premises. Nice hotel overall.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by L. Family Nice Hotel Experience
The Escondido Holiday Inn Express was a super experience for the price and the location. It was great for our family and better than I had hoped going in. The staff did a great job and considering the good price we got on Holiday's own website, it was a super stay. The location is ideal for pretty much most of San Diego County.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nanny2 Good value
The customer service was outstanding. The rooms are smaller than other HIEs where we have stayed. The breakfast is predictable but decent and a real time saver. Unfortunately, the dining room is much too small and the expectation that the uncomfortable sofas in the lobby should be used for overflow is ridiculous. It's clear that maintenance concerns are either reported by the housekeepers who cannot help but notice a poorly draining tub or an inefficient exhaust fan or perhaps those concerns are reported but ignored in the interest of quickly cleaning a room in preparation for the next guest. Would I stay here again? Most likely, yes. Why? Because the customer service is exemplary.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mymarti29 Very small rooms for high price.
The rooms at this hotel are very small for the high price you pay for the room. My daughter and I stayed her for several days this summer on one of those days there was blood all over the parking lot leading up to the lobby and down the hall to the bathroom near the workout room. Manager told us that a woman that was not a guest, the woman told manager that she was in room 231 (no room 231 in this hotel), according to the manager and what we could see in the restroom the women broke through the sink. The next morning you could still see the blood stains on the carpet near the lobby, and large amounts of dried blood near my car. Little scary that this women could just walk into the hotel and use a restroom.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Softball Participants Playing Softball and Staying in Escondido
This Holiday Inn Express was a nice place to stay during our week long softball tournament in San Diego. The location had several restaurant options close by. The hotel staff were cheerful and helpful. Some games were early morning before breakfast was served and a staff member let me take my daughter some fruit and a bagel even though the breakfast room had not been opened yet. When we had a chance, the breakfast was very good. I preferred the fresh scrambled eggs over the folded cheese omelets. The swimming pool and spa area was a nice gathering place for the team and families. The laundry facility worked fine. It was quiet at night around the hotel without traffic noise. The beds were quite comfortable and the room and bathroom were very clean. The only room for improvement might be the air in the room. For some reason our room felt very damp no matter what setting we used for the air conditioner. It felt like an evaporative cooler. The hallways and other rooms did not have the same damp air feeling. Overall however this is a very nice hotel. The staff were all helpful and attentive to our needs. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Escondido.

This was a welcoming, clean, quiet hotel that did exactly what I needed it to do. Allow me to work/rest/prepare for the next day of work. I can't imagine where the negative experiences I read came from!
