Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Escondido visit 2015
We visited the Holiday Inn Express in Escondido and found it was a good location, right off the freeway. The hotel was not overcrowded, in the month of July, and we were able to enjoy the pool in the late afternoon and early evening all by ourselves. The breakfast bar included choices such as: pancakes, scrambled eggs, sausage, hot cinnamon rolls, fresh coffee, orange juice, cold yogurt, fresh fruit, toast, cereal, and bagels. We enjoyed the breakfast and the comfortable guest room. The mattress was firm and springy, and the pillows were very soft, like down feathered pillows. Our room had a window to open, and a working air conditioning unit inside, plus a small refridgerator, and a working TV with local channels available. We also enjoyed the Wifi access while staying at the Holiday Inn. The staff were professional and helpful, and the cleaning ladies kept the room clean and the beds made each day. This hotel met our expectations and we would recommend to a friend.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DS412 Stay away from Holiday Inn Express San Diego-Escondido
This property is in severe need of a remodel. The rooms have an odd damp smell, which they try to cover up with some kind of air freshener or cleaner. It doesn't work. You do not receive house keeping services until you ask. It took two days before we had our room cleaned and restocked. The property is very dirty. If you sit at a table in the pool area, bring a towel to place on the table as a place mat. Finally, the pool towels that you are given, after requesting them at the front desk, are the size of a hand towel.

Hotel outdated. Rooms too small. No room to move around only double beds. Beware of lobby computer when my husband logged on after a woman was using all her stuff was still showing. When I logged on because we couldn't get internet to work it wouldn't log out of our information either. I asked an associate to help she kept clearing the history but it would continue to keep bringing my personal information up. The only way to stop the computer was to shut it down. The room was clean expect the slip mat in the tub was dirty and stained.
The location is good for going to Stone Brewery and not to terribly far from Legoland. Lots of food and shopping nearby.

To be honest, there are many hotels with comfy rooms and the usual and expected amenities. However, this location is our absolute favorite because of the staff. We recognized most from a previous visit... a sign that management knows how to retain excellent employees. All staff provided a welcoming and helpful environment that made our stay one we will definitely repeat. Special kudos to Gina who quietly ensures that the breakfast area is well-stocked, clean, and tidy. She does all of this with a gracious smile and without a hint of intrusion. We were especially impressed when the parent of a young child requested information about the content of the pancakes. Gina provided an empty package for the parent so a determination could be made about that child being able to eat the pancakes. A huge thumbs up to all staff who made our stay an enjoyable one. Thank you!

Forgot to request a first floor room when booking. Called a few hours before check in and was taken care of despite the last minute request.
Breakfast bar has the same items as all other Express locations, but the fruits were fresher than other locations I've stayed at.

Hotel is old and outdated...not what I expected from San Diego. Next time i'll spend the extra cash and stay on the beach.

Family stayed here for a wedding in the area. Was able to get rooms next to each other. Very nice all the way around.
Will hope they will consider getting a charging unit for electric cars or at least make 110 outlet available if we bought our own charger.
