Staff was so accommodating and sweet. Perfect location if you want to be in the La Jolla/Sorrento Valley area. Everyone I spoke to at the Front Desk were always so nice and always kept a shuttle ready when needed.

I was initially scheduled to stay at another hotel but there was a mix up with my reservation. I had to scramble to find another hotel. I ended up here at Holiday Inn Express and was pleasantly surprised. The staff were great. Rooms were clean and the bathroom was a nice size. Free breakfast was great and free parking.

Ill start by saying our rooms were comfortable, clean, we were given service prompt upon arrival and the pool was clean as well for our kids.

Good continental breakfast, pool and spa clean and lots of towels, friendly staff, in the same parking lot as a Chilis restaurant. I would avoid room 418, it shares a wall with some sort of maintenance room and we were kept up most of the night because of a very loud buzzing/humming/machine noise. We asked to be moved the next...
