Nice hotel, moderate price. Close to shops, La Jolla cove. Just a wonderful place. You can pay much, much more someplace else in the area. There are numerous restaurants and bars. All good. Parking excellent, access to freeways and other destinations in San Diego. Do stay here, it's well worth it. Just walking the area is great, an all day...

This was our first stay at a Holiday Inn Express, we stayed two nights, and I confess I expected more. It was clean and comfortable. Pool and hot tub area welcoming. And, yes, the staff was helpful and accommodating. I was surprised at how small the room was, though maybe only ours had a strange configuration as it was an...

I spent 1 night at this hotel. Room was clean, staff was nice, in-room internet was working fine. I asked for late checkout, which was ok with them, however, they forgot about it the next morning. It was ok, the housekeepers apologized and let me finish packing. They have a small pool and offer breakfast as well. The center of...

Best thing about this place was that it was a few short blocks to a pleasant little beach and from there a pleasant run to the Sea Coves and downtown La Jolla heading north. If you're not a runner it would be a bit of a walk--but pleasant. And the small beach directly west of the Holiday Inn would be...

The Intercontinental Hotel Group has spent so much time and $$ redoing and upgrading their properties you really can't go wrong. This location is central between the track in Delmar and downtown.

Overall: convenient hotel, almost motel like, for its price. Location: The hotel is situated south of downtown La Jolla. It is quite far from downtown, walking down La Jolla Blvd would take at least 30 minutes, but it's a 5 minute drive. Rooms: I was first given a room on the first floor in front of the ice machine.
