We spent the first night of our week vacation at this hotel. Rose and Abril were extremely friendly and helpful at the front desk with suggestions for food and sites to see in the San Diego area. They made our stay very comfortable and enjoyable.

I usually like Holiday Inn Express (as well as other IHG brands), because you know exactly what you will get, and the value price relationship is typically good. But this was way below my expectations... The reasons? 1. The hotel was dirty! Public areas, and guestrooms as well!! We had three rooms and two of them had the bathroom dirty...

Murrieta, California
Reviewed 11 August 2016

Nothing extraordinarily good or bad about this HIE. Only niggles were tight parking and a small breakfast room that could not seat everybody at 8am of a weekend. Roadworks outside (not the hotel's fault) made entrance a little tricky and slow but hopefully they'll be finished soon (that was early August 2016).
