This was by far the nicest Holiday Inn Express I have stayed in. The lobby was small but luxurious. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. There is a very well-stocked mini-mart just off the lobby, and you can charge your purchase to your room. I had a room with a single queen bed. The bed was super comfortable...

At first I thought a made a big mistake. The hotel looks more like a motel, and I'm sure at one time it was. This is not your traditional Holiday Inn. The rooms are tiny, but comfortable and clean. Tip: ask for a room that is furthest from the busy highway, otherwise it will be noisy. The owners/ management have...

Candidly, the room, a 2 bedroom unit (turned out to be a handicapped accessible space, which is fine), wasn't much. The hotel sits above the freeway and train tracks, so noise is an issue. The beds were comfortable, the room was clean and the shuttle service fabulous. The staff went our of their way to assist us. When we mentioned...

Clean hotel with comfy beds. The staff, including Art and Josh so helpful and pleasant to deal with. Our party was a late check in and early departure and they made it a smooth trip. We had all ages from 23-86 and the ease of check in was great.

We only stayed here one night, prior to our flight home from San Diego, but we were pleasantly surprised at how easy they made our lives the last night of our trip. Jose at the front desk was incredibly friendly, professional, and helpful (and fast!), even while juggling our check in and three phone calls for the shuttle. The shuttle...
