Around 6:30 am the car wash will open and it's a loud consistent sound of a vacuum. Unfortunately I left my ear plugs at home, so it was very loud. (Tip to hotel - rooms close to the car wash have ear plugs in those rooms). Unfortunately, my room was also not clean when I arrived. There was used gum...

Had a great room with good lighting and a nice view. The onsite restaurant was sufficiently priced with many options to choose from and the gentleman in the morning was very attentive and helpful in my selection. I recommend this hotel if you are traveling for business- it's a great location and checking in and out is a breeze. The...

I'm typically a Marriott person. I asked my corporate travel agent for a Marriott hotel and she said they use the Holiday Inn when we have corporate guests stay in La Mesa, CA. Reluctantly, I agreed. I don't even have a frequent flyer number for the Holiday Inn. I arrived late (8:30 p.m.) after grinding my way in traffic for...

This place wouldn't be so bad if they spend a little money putting micros in the rooms. How do you not have something so simple? Plue rhis place doesn't have any type of breakfast service. But they do have a restaurant on the premises. So no microwave, no breakfast, which I thought was a given for HI. It screams "eat...

The room was nice and the location is quiet. In addition, the staff was pleasant and attentive. I gave this property an "average" rating because it does not provide breakfast coffee in the lobby and does not provide a complimentary breakfast (at least for the rate that I paid). We were told this is because there is a restaurant on...

Came in from Santa Clarita to watch a game at Petco. Staff was tremendous and attentive. Room was clean and quiet. Will stay here again for sure! Also, across the street is one of the best breakfast restaurants, The Omelette Factory.

I think that this is a nice property. I cant give it a 5 star just because its beginning to show its age. The room had an old smell when i came in (it was 95 degrees outside so it was hot in the room) and there had been a 3 foot ceiling repair down but they didnt repaint it....

I stay in hotels about 40-50 nights per year and am a fan of the IHG brand. I happened to get this one on a Priceline booking and was less than impressed. The parking lot has a very steep entry and is awkward. The check-in was slow and staff were less than friendly. Overall, I just felt as if this...
