Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mitchandbaby looking for peace and quiet
the nature of my work leaves me high stressed; a couple months back i visited HI express solano beach and was 100% satisified, all my needs being met; i returned for more of the same, only to be startled at 11:15pm with what sounded like the 3rd Reich marching on the third floor; at 11:40pm i went to the front desk to request a remedy and was told it was "still early" and to give the 3rd floor guests another half hour to settle down...really? when my intention was peace and quiet and at midnite i am told it is still early, i am sorry, "still early" is the wrong answer.
that the establishment offers close proximity to the beach is a plus; that morning breakfast offers nothing but oj and coffee for vegetarians, and midnite being 'still early', i have sought other establishments, finding the radisson quite satisfactory.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Fantastic staff and service!
Every person that worked at this hotel, from housekeeping to the front desk to the breakfast staff, greeted me with a warm, genuine smile. They were anxious to please, friendly and professional. This is a place I will frequent again and again; an excellent value for the dollar, as well!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SchmiddyBo close walk to beach and large room
The room was spacious and comfortable and included a little balcony area out the back sliding door. The beach was an easy 5 to 10 minute walk from the hotel. Also, there were washers and dryers available to guests.
All hotel staff were friendly, helpful and corteous.
We enjoyed our too brief stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ddoz2 Great service and place to stay
I visit Solana Beach about 40 days each year and always stay at this Holiday Inn. The people/staff there are great - always very friendly and a great help. If anything needs attention, they are on it immediately to get it taken care of. The property has recently been upgraded and the accomodations are very nice including recent upgrades to the equipment in the fitness center. My sincere thanks to all the management and staff for making this my home away from home while I travel. I strongly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the Solana Beach area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Willemfrom8 Pleasant stay and walking distance to the beach
The staff was friendly and very helpfull. The beach is on walking distance, so my son could simply walk every day to the beach for surfing. The hotel has a small, but nice outdoor pool. Easy parking directly under the hotel. A number of restaurants on walking distance. We enjoyed our 6 night stay in this hotel!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Boman55 Worth a stay at Holiday Inn Solana Beach
Our stay at the Holiday Inn at Solana Beach was as expected, great! We opted for a suite during our recent stay during the President's Weekend in mid-February. Our suite was clean, and despite earlier reviews of the older bathrooms, our bathroom was fine and my wife just loved the in-room spa! The hotel is situated near the beach, as well as near Del Mar and La Jolla. We will be coming back in the future!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Carl11 Not the best place I've ever stayed
This location is dated. The rooms are small, don't smell great, have really (really) old furniture and the bathroom needs to be replaced. There's rust in the sink and tub, and in general, it's time for a re-do. Having said all that, it was cheap, so if you're on a tight budget and don't care if the room is not terribly good, then I guess it's an OK place to stay. Trust me, you can do better.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PopeyeIndy Great Weekend Get-a-way Location
Wife & I stayed here for a quiet weekend after Christmas and we really enjoyed it. Location is awesome, walking distance to the Beach, Shops and restaurants. The rooms are older decor, which is the only negative. Breakfast is good.

We stayed for new years eve and had a great sleep. No loud parties, clean beds and room. Comfy pillows and convenient location. Only complaint is the room smelled like dog or musty laundry. Better than Cigarettes!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ECJo Kind service, in spite of...
I have stayed here multiple weeks and find the hotel to be outstanding because of location and staff kindness. However, when it came down to me moving rooms or an RV moving that parked outside with its generator on all night, the owner said moving the RV or telling them to shut off its generator was "not going to happen". Needless to say, I recommend this hotel because of my first comments, but I will be looking elsewhere next time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MobayGirl Great Staff...Very Pleasant and Restful location
Check-in was delightful, great front desk staff. Beds were comfortable and clean...but it's the wonderful staff that makes it a perfect place. Great location for restaurants too...California Pizza Kitchen, Bangkok Bay and Pariola's within walking distance, as was the beach. San Diego was just a short drive away, and Enterprise will deliver a car right to the hotel. Amtrak train stops at Solana Beach...and the location allows you to travel north or south to San Diego, all within a brief 15 minutes or so. DelMar is located very close, walking hills and beaches too. Just perfect for everything...and breakfast is great!!

The service, staff, and location are fantastic! We were walking distance to the concert we attended at the Belly Up as well as many restaurants and shops. The room was very nice and had a microwave and refrigerator which was great to heat up our leftovers after the concert. I would definitely recommend this as a place to stay.

What a relaxing and comfortable stay I had at the Holiday Inn Express in Solana Beach. The customer service was warm and friendly, the rooms clean and comfortable providing all the amenities I needed. I was able to enjoy the beach as well since it was a short walk from the Hotel. Overall I was pleasantly surprised and would recommend this as a place to stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ReeS Comfortable, convenient
This hotel is about a 20 minute walk from Solana Beach Amtrak/Coaster station. It has a #101 bus stop in front so it was easy to get around without a car.
Access to the beach is across the street.
Many good restaurants within walking distance.
Breakfast room is large with many options.
