Cecilville, California1 contribution
We stayed here 3 nights mid-week. The room was clean and sufficient. The continental breakfast is mostly prepackaged junk food due to the changes for Covid. My issue with this hotel is that when sewage backed up into our bathroom, and they had us move rooms, in the rush, I left my sweater in the first room. When we got to the new room, less than 2 hours later, I inquired with the front desk if I could get back into the room to retrieve my sweater. They were not helpful and never followed up on this issue, despite several calls and stops by the front desk, and then telling me that someone would call me. They would not allow me into the room to look for myself and told me housekeeping was gone and they would contact me upon return. No one contacted me and before I left I stopped by the front desk once again, just to be told that no one found it. They didn't seem to care or help me resolve the issue.

I booked 2 rooms here for my son and his cousins to have a little getaway. They arrived to ants in both of the rooms that were rented. Tonight it was discovered there are bed bugs on one of the rooms. Priceline calls me at 11pm stating General Manager Charlotte has requested a refund be processed on the bed bug room for one night So not only did my family have to buy their own bug spray to kill the hundreds of ants. They will also need to wash all of their things to ensure they bring no bed bugs home. Thank you GM Charlotte for that one night credit.

Tha restaurant, lobby, meeting rooms are all shut down due to renovations. Cold breakfast available by special order if filed before 9 pm the night before. Don't believe file photos...run away. Neighborhood is also not family friendly.

Hi there, tpatrickb! Thank you so much for sharing your experience with our hotel. I am disappointed to see that your experience was less than excellent. The circumstances you have mentioned are not what I want you to experience with any of our properties. Know that providing every guest's needs is our top priority and we are always trying our best to give you a great impression. I'm so sorry for all the hassle. I have already brought up your comments to the hotel's attention and necessary actions will be taken to avoid the same inconvenience in the future. I truly hope that we will have a chance to make it up to you and provide you with a better experience upon your return. All the best, Peter J. Case Manager IHGService

Traveling across the U.S. in 3 days from Kokomo, IN to San Diego, CA., for family business I stayed at a Country Inn and Suites, in, Tulsa, OK., 1 st night; Big Mistake! 2nd night Holiday Inn Express in Las Cruses, NM; 3rd night, Holiday Day Inn Express in El Central, CA., and now 2 nights at the Holiday Inn Express in San Diego, CA.. All Holiday Inn Expresses are Great. This one bar none is Fabulous! The manager, Maria, is of the Best Property Managers that I have ever had the pleasure to encounter. She knows the property and is always busy doing something for her guests. She makes an out of towner feel like Family. Important right now because our society is up side down. Maria, is calm, collective and engaging. You need not stay anywhere else, because this location is 5 Stars. Thank You Maria, for making me feel like part of the Holiday Inn Express Family.

I was working in the area so before I left, I flew my girlfriend in for weekend getaway. We were only there 2 nights but it was a lovely stay. Zasha and Jose were working the front desk and the took great care of us from the moment we arrived. They were both very informative and helpful. Zasha went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of and that we had a wonder stay. Thanks.
