Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 49 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful Staff I wish I could give Carlos and Maria 10 stars!! They were wonderful and made our visit very pleasant. The hotel is nice and clean, all the things you would expect a Holiday Inn Express to be, but the staff went above and beyond! Thank you! May 17, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by clean rooms, excellent staff, happy to stay. i have stayed at the holiday, many times and i always have been very happy with my stay here. i recommend this place. May 9, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable room and excellent service Just one nigth, but really needed. Bed and pillows were very comfortable. Attention from staff was excellent. Breakfast, nice. Only one little problem: the minibar wake me up at midnigth. Please revise the minibars to be more silent. April 18, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable hotel The hotel is a good place to visit to visit your friends and family. The breakfast is normal so don't get your expectations to high because the breakfast is standard. Every other day you will find either scrambled eggs or omelettes. April 8, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by home away from home it is nice to know that there is a good hotel chain who is constantly oponening their doors for yoou every single day of the year with more than 200 new hotels being opened annually. i suggest that you do pick a good hotel that it is cheap because the money that we have do not grow on trees.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by The hotel was very cosy... The security guard was very friendly and made me feel like i was at home. March 27, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by My Experience I opted for a sweet with two queen beds and our stay was for four days during Memorial weekend. Location of Hotel is approximately two blocks down from a trolly stop on same side with lots of eateries. Although the room was comfortable, clean and mail service was excellent. My experience was not.. First morning my friend and I thought we take advantage of the complimentary breakfast. While eating, I noticed the attendant and front desk person (both females) were discussing something, while somewhat looking our way. In effort to avoid embarrassment in front of others. I stud up and approached this person, who later I came to find out she was the front desk manager (female) and I asked if something was wrong. She responding by asking if we were staying there. I responded by saying yes, she intern nicely asked to see my room key card, so I showed it too her. This was very uncomfortable for my friend and I. Which pretty much ruined it for us going forward, with respect to feeling comfortable and being able to relax. March 1, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Stay! I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this Holiday Inn. My wife and I spent our honeymoon travelling up and down Southern California. We had enough points for 2 weeks in California so we stayed at Holiday Inn's to stretch our points. This was probably the best one we stayed at. It was recently renovated (6 mo.) so every thing was like new. Everything was good. Room was clean and smelled good. Bathroom was great. Lobby and other common areas was well kept and decorated. Staff was good. It was really nice. No cons at this hotel. The only "complaint" I could come up with is the AC was a little loud but that is like one tenth of one percent of my overall experience. Great hotel, staff, breakfast. Great stay. Chula Vista itself was skeptical but we only stayed there to be in the vicinity of San Diego and enjoy the coast. I recommend this property.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful staff I have stayed at this hotel intermittently for 3 months while working in Tijuana. The staff is great, extremely accommodating. I have had packages sent to my room from my company several times, they are always waiting for me in my room when I arrive at night. Same when I turn my laundry in. The front desk personnel has gone above and beyond to make me feel welcome and take care of my needs. In my 6 years of frequent travel with my career, I would rate this as the friendliest hotel I have ever stayed at. They also always do their best to get me my favourite 1st floor room when I book the hotel. I especially want to thank Carlos for his hospitality and helpfulness. I utilise the gym at least every other day during my stay, the equipment is in good shape. This is a great hotel, and I have recommended it to everyone I work with whose travels bring them to this area. February 7, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excelent location between San Diego and San Ysidro I stayed for 6 nights with my family in december-january and the overall experience was very good; excellent relation cost-benefits. We didn't need to rent a car 'cause the troley station is very near. January 10, 2013
