I killed two spiders in the bathroom and the safety door lock inside the room was broken. The sink barely drains.
I have noticed that many of he Holiday Inn properties in Southern Ca are severely lacking in maintenance.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by xlagman Not equivalent to most HIE properties
This property is essentially a motel charging hotel rates. The property comprises separate two story buildings. There are no elevators and the buildings open to the parking lot. The exterior doors require a key card but there is no one watching who enters and exits. This is not the same security as a hotel in which you enter a central lobby and pass the reception desk before entering the accommodations area. I went out of my room to get some ice and had to walk downstairs, exit the building, walk across the parking lot and enter another building to reach the ice machine.
There is no onsite restaurant available.
This property is similar to the Super 8 Motel my brother-in-law likes to stay at and he only pays $65 a night.
Would not stay here again at the quoted price.

I booked a suite with two queen beds. The room was spacious. They also included the couch/bed in the living room. The couch cushions need to be replaced with more padding. You sink right in as soon as you sit down.
Other than that, the place was nice. I don't expect much from this Holiday Inn, considering this is an old building. But, everything inside seemed pretty new, except for the couch.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by seattle63 How can a bed be too comfortable?
Really? My only complaint is that the bed was too comfortable. I kid you not. I like a bit of a firm bed, and the ones here are a bit too comfortable. So for the rest of the world, that's not a problem, I guess... Otherwise the accommodations here are well worth the price. Staff is great, rooms are large, clean and comfy. Free breakfast is very nice, too! This is the second time we have stayed here, and it's all good. Good location - just 5 minutes from the beach, 10 from some great historical things (like missions - really interesting) and Carlsbad.

I stay at Holiday Inn Express (HIE)all the time and you learn to expect a level of accomodation. This facility did not compare with the quality of most HIE's.
