Stayed here for. Business and it was the same quality I expect from Holiday Inn Express. Breakfast area was nice. Same typical choices. Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was clean and modern with microwave and fridge. Chilis in parking lot. Only complaint, size of parking spots. Way narrow.

We stayed at Holiday inn for two nights. The check in process was smooth. The rooms are spacious and clean. The bathroom is clean but does not have an exhaust fan because of which when you have a hot shower the entire bathroom gets fogged and you are forced to dry yourself in the room. The breakfast was adequate and...

Had a great stay here last 2 days of 2016. Staffs are very friendly, with breakfast included you can't get wrong with this. Location is ideal to cover north and south attractions in San Diego. Hotel has an opportunity to improve sleep quality of their customers by improving beds and linens. Overall a good night stay.

The HI Express at Sorrento Valley is a great value providing consistent, friendly service with convenient access to north county businesses and restaurants. it has an excellent location just off the 805 and shares a parking lot with a Chili's restaurant. Cece and Elissa and staff are super friendly and helpful.

CeCe was very kind and went out of her way to help me with my reservations. Areli and Laurie would always greet me warmly and made me feel like family. They would keep a couple of chocolate chip cookies behind the desk so that I would have some when returning late from work. Sara was just fantastic in the breakfast...

Nothing to write home about. Service ppl were very nice. Its beautiful on the outside and also when you step in to the lobby. Very clean . But once you leave the front desk its kinda like a blast from the past. It really needs to be renovated. The carpet throughout the hotel is wall to wall. Gives it an...

I travel almost every week for work. Rarely do I write a review. It's either good, or bad, but if I write it, the place earned it. CeCe checking me in was one of the employees I'll remember. Great job!

Location good though a bit far from the main town. Room well furnished with two queen beds and clean. Bathroom decent and spacious with provided toiletries. Breakfast was good with a nice spread. Great place to stay though our stay was very short.

We were there for the weekend going sightseeing at Torrey Pines State Park. But the room we stayed in is very clean.
