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Hotel outdated.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.
