The hotel is not the newest Holiday Inn Express, but its location is great! 5 minutes distance to the cliff descent to the ocean, and - preferable - a short walk to the nice Del Mar Dog Beach. Room was clean and nice, breakfast is good, the laundry room was disappointing. The bottom line - good choice.

We were finally able to make it to Solana Beach after needing to reschedule due to a medical issue in May. Working with the front desk over the phone on the reschedule was seamless.

I just read a review from Patricia E and it pretty much summarizes my stay exactly. Our room was clean and quiet. We did have issues with concert goers coming in noisy and late (one even pulled the fire alarm at 1:00 a.m.) but that is not the hotels fault. It was a challenge to get our room cleaned while...

Thank you for reviewing your recent stay. We apologize for the issue with regards to the fire alarm. That was an isolated case and thankfully it was a false that was verified by the fire department.

The room smelled, and looked, like a hospital room. Bathroom was not clean. Front desk staff was not friendly. I would suggest paying a little more and go to the Courtyard by Marriott, right up the street.

We came here to relax and enjoy some beach time as this hotel advertises its proximity to the ocean. The beach is two long blocks away. Our room although remodeled, looked shabby, and some bathroom fixtures were rusty. The bathroom door wouldn't stay open and the light switch was behind it, making it pretty hard to reach.
