This properties common areas were very nice - upgraded and beautiful. However, the bathroom was very old and terribly awkward layout. It was clean, but didn't feel like it just because of the age of everything. Most importantly, the bathroom door opened in and against the vanity and sink area. It was very tricky getting in and out of the bathroom.

It's not fancy but it is the right price for our 10 day stay. No charge for parking. No charge for breakfast- oatmeal, cinnamon muffins, eggs, sausage or bacon, pancakes, oj, yogurt, bananas, mini bagels, english muffins, cereal, drinks and people who work in the breakfast room who are wonderful. Warm cookies in the evening. Convenient driveway off 101. Walkable to fine Italian restaurant, yoga studio, fish place, CVS, post office, beach. Across the street is a runners' path. Front desk people are awesome. Internet free. Pool for kids. A small workout room for adults who don't want to enjoy the sunshine outside.

So, I ended up at this property because of a business trip. I reserved a suite that said had a balcony. The balcony was the selling point for the suite upgrade, but I ended up finding out that practically every room has a balcony. I wish i would have known that ahead of time. I also thought there was some kind of beach view from the suite - this is not the case, but the beach is about a block or two away.
The rooms are large, both suites and regular rooms. Breakfast was excellent. Nice choices, great staff.
The look is a little dated and the property could use remodeling, but that should not really stop anyone from visiting.
I would like to try this place out in the summer.

Our last stay was our fourth at the Holiday Inn, Solana Beach. Location is perfect for our needs and a short walk to the ocean.
Rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast choices were good and it was nice to see a familiar face in the breakfast room, still working there, which is a great sign.

I always enjoy staying at the Solana Beach HI Express. The place is nice, the people are really helpful, and the place is very quiet.

While a Holiday Inn Express will never be anyone's idea of a Four Seasons, I rated it excellent because for the money it WAS. Its cooly modern, quiet, everything works, everything was seamless and clean, super easy access to beach, even liked way pool/spa situated and seeing palms. so very pleasant and serene and affodable to do what along the coastline.

We came into town for a concert and wasn't planning to stay overnight but to drive back. On a whim we called and talked to Jesse and he gave us a good deal. With that deal we stayed and it allow us to enjoy the concert without worrying about driving home at 130 am. Also it allowed us to stay in town on the following day and enjoy Solana Beach. This was my second time at this location and it seemed better this time around. Thank you
