I stayed 8 days at this hotel in November 2016 and it isn't a bad place, but their billing department and restaurant were a joke. I pre-paid extra for the breakfasts at the restaurant, but the cook was out or late three of those days and the hotel would not refund my card. Then to add insult to injury, the...

Mathew- I apologize that you had such an incident that did not leave a good impression. It appears that during the transition of Management teams at the hotel, that we made a few mistakes.

I was coming to San Diego State to visit our son and there was not a hotel room available! Must have been Charger fans, weddings, etc. but I finally found this Holiday Inn. I am a Ritz Carlton kind of gal so I was a little worried about the area. There is a nice Costco across the street so it...

We stayed here 4 days and had a king room. The place is VERY clean. The room was large and so was the fridge. The shower was also quite big. But we had to ask for a non-slip mat as the floor in the shower was very slippery. But they brought it promptly and it worked well. About the only...

We were forced to stay in a hotel with a pipe burst in our home. We stayed at the holiday in express and it was a great place to stay and a great value! My daughter and granddaughter stayed with me and they enjoyed the pool. The people at the front desk or friendly. The restaurant on site was very,...

The hotel is convenient. Parking is free and the rooms are nice. Clean, updated, good shower and comfortable bed. Street noise is moderate in the morning but not awful and staying in the rear of the hotel would resolve this. Easy trip to North County and beaches. Lots of shopping and restaurants near by. The same room would be triple...

I sure did not think the place was that bad, nice? nope. but not that bad. The price of real estate in this town is so expensive, so to have a decent room at this price, with free, tight yes, but free parking and friendly service and a munch of holiday inn reward points made the overall value a five...

Stayed here 3 nights. Had king size which limited the space in room, almost no walking or storage room! Switched to two queen beds and it was much more roomier. Close to mission beach, weird hotel views.

The best thing about this hotel is its location. It's close to the airport, Qualcomm Stadium & close to the family we came to visit & spend time with. The staff was friendly & attentive & housekeeping kept our room tidy & clean!!! There are a couple of things that would have made our stay great! A microwave oven to...

Stayed here for 3 days. I love the friendly staff and the atmosphere! The rooms are very nice and look recently updated. The maids were very nice and made sure that we were very well taken care of. I would highly recommend this hotel and plan on staying here for my next trip to La Mesa.
