The rooms at this hotel are always clean and very comfortable. Having a microwave and small refrigerator is always a bonus. The beds are very nice and there is an assortment of pillows.

You usually know what you are getting when you stay at a Holiday Inn Express, that is why I stay there. What made the biggest impression to me about this hotel was the friendliness of the front desk person at check-in, and each time walked by the front desk.

The hotel is ok. The rooms are good size but the beds were not good for two. One moves and the other feels everything.
The shower faucet was very hard to use and turn off.
Pool towels were face cloth size.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MT_Colorado 10 out of 10 - Holiday Inn Express at Solana Beach
Very informative and curious staff upon a late arrival. Very close to the beach and the staff let us know exactly how to get there, without our having to ask. The room was great, with a big flat screen TV and either Dish Network or Direct TV, sufficiently firm beds for couples and sufficiently firm pillows. The hot breakfast was a time and money saver and included bacon and surprisingly eggs with cheese folded into them. The pool and hot tub were awesome(open until 10 pm) as well. And...Free Parking! No complaints.

My friend and I stay here every year for our Del Mar races weekend. We can walk to the racetrack and avoid the parking lot headaches. Also, the hotel has been completely refurbished.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by natnatnoo Great Service, close to beach
We stayed here for 4 nights. It was within walking distance to beach and our 3 1/2 year old did it just fine. Bed was comfortable for us but the single bed needs to be updated. Thank goodness I had our foam to add to that mattress in order for the bed to be comfy otherwise without the foam you are sleeping on springs. The patio was nice to have- it allowed us to dry shoes and swim suits etc.
The bathroom door kept closing on its own and it slammed hard- so watch out about tiny hands getting slammed. Other than the door, the bathroom was fine. They give you shampoo etc. The towels were clean and fluffy.
There's only a few restaurants within walking distance if you have small children- unlike the tons of restaurants within walking distance that the staff said. However in my opion there were very few options even driving wise. This is not your typical strand beach where there are tons of options for food. Most food places near hotel serve breakfast and lunch only- What about dinner?? Do people not eat dinner?? hmmm. There were quite a few Italian restuarants. We like Italian but not for every meal.
Don't expect much from the pool/hot tub area- its really small. We went once to check it out and well that's all we did. Not enough chairs/tables or room to walk around. We spent most of the time on the beach. Really nice beach and never encountered thousands of people like we did in La Jolla. Small town feel for Solana Beach. Overall this hotel provided what we wanted to do- beach beach beach. The staff is super nice all the time- so thank you.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lovethecoast!! Super Hotel
We were looking for an economical hotel in the Del Mar/Solano Beach area to catch a couple days of the Del Mar Horsetrack summer meet. This place was perfect. Walking distance from several restaurants and a nice clean, quiet hotel. Great AC, TV, internet all worked fine. So no complaints and we are planning on coming back in November to do it again!!
