Checked in after a day at the San Diego Fair. A nice place to stay in a moderate range. Breakfast was good with a decent amount of choices. The room was clean, but a little noisy. We had a room in the back and it was a hot evening and we left the slider open to get the sea breeze....

We stayed at this location one night on our west coast trip. Located right on Hwy 101. Very pleased with all aspects... breakfast was excellent as usual for a Holiday Inn Express. Would stay here again.

I was here for a short business trip. The location is good, near the Del Mar Fairground. Easy access to restaurants, stores and the beach. Room is good, and the breakfast is okay. Very friendly staff.

Stayed on a Sunday night when the town was quiet. This hotel is value-priced for the area and is a good choice if you’re on business or not vacationing. The rooms are nice, nothing fancy but in very good condition. The elevators are kind of beat-up but that was the only area I noticed that was in need of attention....

We stay at this Holiday Inn because of its location in the heart of Solana Beach. We need to be near Fletcher Cove so our choices are limited. This is a good hotel with good rooms and an okay breakfast to get you started. It does have a nice pool as well. The rooms are a three and half star,...

This is a fine inn and I had a very nice stay. Staff are friendly and helpful, rooms clean, complementary breakfast every morning, and free parking. I came to Solana Beach to see a show at the Belly Up Tavern, and the location is great because it was a 10 minute walk to the venue. Solana Beach is a really...

Great location, right near the ocean. Cute atmosphere and decorations. The suite we were in is big and comfortable. Good service at check in and breakfast. For $170, such a great value in southern California!

The front desk people were nice. The room was a standard room. The outlets on the light on the desk were hard to get working, you had to jiggle the plug. The bathroom had new tile and sink, but the rest was a little old and needed some maintenance. The balcony was also a little run down, with a bent...

Front desk was super helpful. The ocean was only a 5 minute walk out the back. It was standard holiday Inn express breakfast. But if you want a romantic get away from the hustle and bustle it was perfect. We had three days of beach walking with no crowds. Fish tacos from Rubio's down the street.
