Holiday Inn Express Mira Mesa-San Diego

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Free breakfast was picked over. There was a large spider in our room. The new pool is under construction but it looks tiny. No spa either.

Nice location. Very close to the 15 freeway and local shops. The rooms are okay. The drapes don't completely block outside light and don't close to make way for the AC vents.

The check in was horrible. I was talked to as if I was checking into prison. I was woken up at 2am to the smell of cigarette smoke in a smoke free hotel, only to find the front desk clerk smoking. When I asked him to stop, he laughed and apologized. Very bad. There was one women who worked in the complimentary breakfast bar that was amazing! She was bright and full of energy. Overall, a real lack of service. a great over night business hotel, but other than that.... No way!

Good things: Great location close to freeway and amenities. Friendly and helpful staff. Updated decor, free breakfast, free wifi, comfortable bed. Not so good things: mold in shower (wall) and sink had a musty/moldy smell coming out of it. All in all a good stay.

At night sound like some body stomping. And overall it was ok

Very friendly staff. Good coffee and breakfast. Happy hour with free wine and beer. Walk to numerous good restaurants.

We stayed at this Holiday Inn over spring break and it was the perfect location. 20 minutes from everything (Sea World, the zoo, the beach). The staff was super friendly and helpful. Several times, they printed us directions so we wouldn't get lost. I would definitely stay at this hotel again if I was in the San Diego area.

The location of the hotel is good, very near by the restaurants, shopping centers and freeway. The room is clean and comfortable. But the air conditioner is tooooooo noisy!!!!!

If only there is more than one elevator; staff help to locate nearest store for iPad charger.

The Mira Mesa Holiday Inn Express/Mira Mesa couldn't be in a better location if you've business of pleasure in the Mira Mesa area. The staff was polite and helpful and the room was comfortable and clean. An abundance of dining is very close by.

The room was adequate[...] When I checked in and arrived at the room, the room smelled worse than an ashtray. I was told this was the only room left. The hotel manager said that I could not get a refund for the the night. I had no choice but to stay the night at Hotel Ashtray. Try spending the night in a smoking room with a child with asthma. [...] By far, not a good experience.

the difference from stay at the Holiday Inn Las Veges is like night and day. The people at SD were unfriendly, and when we went for breakfast there was no or no place to seat of over 1 hr. the second even through a holiday they closed on a normal work day

Have stayed in better Holiday Inn Expresses for less. Was disappointed. Also, in very fine print underneath signature line was statement that local paper would be delivered for $.75 each day. This wasn't mentioned by clerk. I requested no paper. She said she would make a note. In a.m. paper was at door. I returned it unread to clerk at desk. Again was told it would be removed. However, was charged on final statement. They acted like they didn't know what I was talking about!

I stayed here a month ago and liked it enough to book this hotel again. The rooms are nicely renovated and the Breakfast is good. The staff has alway been polite and helpful. I was attending a training seminar at a nearby business. This location is right off of the 15 so it is very easy to get to where you are going. My only compliant is the old cheap fitness equipment and the old CRT TV's that don't allow for accessory hook up. If they were to fix those it would be the perfect affordable hotel.

uncomfortable bed, but everything else was great.

Only problem was that on Monday morning (Labor Day) they were out of food for the continental breakfast by 8:30 a.m.

Very nice rooms. The complamentary breakfast was great with a nice view at that. The staff was very nice in all aspects. Checking in and checking out was a breeze. You get a news paper everymorning at the front of your door and they don't just throw them they place them forward so when you open the door it's facing you. Overall for the price I got it on Orbitz and many expensive hotels that I've stayed in within the San Diego area, this hotel is worth the stay.

Clean Room,B/fast room- not very clean. I wish there was drinking water in the room. I was not sure if the tap water was good. I ended up buying from the vending machine.

Very nice hotel. Will be back when traveling to San Diego.

My wife was attending an all-day real estate seminar and the hotel was right down the block, very convenient. The room was quite large with high ceilings, making it seem even larger. There was a microwave and small refrigerator, which is always a nice amenity. The hotel had a cheerful and helpful desk staff, who suggested a very good Korean restaurant within close walking distance (practically in the same parking lot). We had not tried this particular style of Korean BBQ and were pleasantly surprised. The usual happy hour and express breakfast round out the Holiday Inn Express experience.
