This was our third stay at The Holiday Inn Express in La Jolla; and, we continue to be impressed with the rooms, atmosphere, amenities, cleanliness, and, most importantly, the staff. All of the staff were very friendly and customer-oriented, especially Juanita (front desk) and Mercy (breakfast room). We look forward to our next visit!

We recently stayed at this hotel on our way back from Hawaii and wanted a somewhat cheaper hotel to stay in. First, the location of the hotel is a bit deceptive. It's really not all that close to downtown La Jolla, or Scripps park...you'll have to drive about 5 or 6 minutes to get there. I was under the impression...

Thank you for your feedback on your recent visit. I apologize for the misperception that we were located in Downtown La Jolla.

I stayed for one night in Jan. 2013. I was a late check in (like... midnight), and the front desk was very helpful in accommodating this. I also asked for a non-ground floor room, and this request was honored by the staff without any difficulty. I had previously stayed in this hotel last year in a ground floor room, and...

Overall it was a pleasant experience. We spent three days in La Jolla and this was our resting place. Just a few minutes from the beach made it's location perfect for the family.
