We were looking for a Holiday Inn since we're Priority Club members and near Chula Vista and found this one online with good reviews.

Angie did an amazing job restocking the breakfast buffet area (fast and tidy) as well as emptying the trash bins before they overflow. Her courteous manners of notifying the guests when the buffet was about to close is sweet and convenient. Rooms are cozy, doesn't take long for water to heat up for showers. Easy to access off the 805...

The hotel was really nice except the pancake machine and noise from the hallway. I really wanted to try the pancake machine for breakfast but it was out of order. Other guests in the hallway were really noisy even late in the night. Other than that the hotel was nice, good location, nice staff.

My family and I stayed here while visiting family over the holidays. The staff was very pleasant. The room was clean and comfortable. While the breakfast was not the best quality there were lots of choices and everyone found something they could eat. For our budget this hotel exceeded our expectations.
