We have stayed in many Holiday Inns and HI Expresses over the years, across the US and Canada. This is now one of our favourites! Great renovation, surprisingly large rooms, very clean, beautiful pool area, outstanding staff, close to the beach, Sea World, La Jolla Village, and Bird Rock. Rali, who greeted us, was friendly and helpful, and Juantia "La...

This is a small hotel that is still under renovation. It has 2 seperate buildings, the main building (3 or 4 floors I think), and a u-shaped motel type of rooms (about 10 rooms), that have the pool in the middle of the U. These rooms could be noisy if the weather is warm & it has many people in...

We were recommended to stay here by our cousin who lives nearby. We booked their best room, which was a suite with a jacuzzi. The room was really spacious with a separate kitchenette and dining area. It overlooked the pool area but that was pretty much deserted. Our rate was just about $200 per night, but that included taxes, breakfast...

Spent 4 nights at this HIX property. It's basically an older style beach property recently purchased by IHG. The room was spacious, clean and very modern. The outside amenities were excellent like the pool, hot tub and parking. The location is perfect, off the beach by a block and easy walk. The only reason I did not give this 5...
