Holiday Inn Express San Diego N - Rancho Bernardo

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It was a nice stay, the Brakfast was nice and easy for the wrestler. We will return.

Great location and experience. you must try Phil's BBQ next door. Amazing food.

The hotel was conveniently located and easy to find. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful and our room was comfortable. The facility was slightly dated and starting to get that musty smell that older building get but because our room had central A/C, it didn't smell that way as much in there, mostly in the long hallway. Breakfast was included in the cost. It's always nice to be able to get up and have a hot breakfast easily accessible which is one less thing to worry about when traveling with children. The noon check out time was also nice. Many places that we've stayed at have 10am check out which makes the morning somewhat hectic. Because of the later time, we were able to sleep in, have a hot meal, and even relax in our room before packing up to go.

Great staff! Good breakfast buffet and comfortable rooms.

My experience was great, the breakfast was good & the rooms were nice & clean.

Wewere staying here the night before our day at the San Diego zoo wild animal park. Everyone was friendly, helpful, and efficient the room was comfy, and breakfast is always delicious

ALL THE STAFF WERE VERY FRIENDLY MOST DEF STAY AND RECOMMEND MY FAMILY

I thought the hotel was decent. I loved the breakfast in the morning. Especially before a long day ahead. Right next to the wild animal park so that was a big plus.

Booked this last minute during comic con which was about half an hr away from one of the trolley centers. The room was clean, free wifi, hbo, etc. the only complaint I have is the parking area which itself was packed and felt very squishy.

Cool place to stay. Our room is very clean and staffs are very nice. I recommend this hotel.

The hotel was just ok. The staff was friendly but the rooms were just ok. We checked in and our first room's carpet was soaked near the patio door. We informed the frost desk and they moved us to another room. When we got home, both my children and husband had bad bug bites on their legs and arms. The location was great, but I would not stay there again.

It is nice place to stay and good price too ! So far enjoy it and the staffs very helpful

front desk staff promptly moved and upgraded me when my assigned room was experiencing some air-conditioner problems. Could have simply moved me to a comparable room but chose to make my experience "good stuff"

It was nice to hv family time together and good breakfast.

We enjoyed our stay! The room was clean and the staff was beyond helpful. The breakfast was great! We will stay there again when we visit our family who lives nearby.

Easy access to highways, stores and restaurants. Good continental breakfast.

It's pretty much what you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express. The room was clean; the bed was comfortable; the water pressure could have been better. It's close to the freeway, and was perfectly serviceable for the one night we were there.

Was in town for a funeral and invited grandchildren over to the room. With a couch and desk chair they fit in fine. Would have liked to have chairs for the balcony, my only suggestion.

STAFF VERY ACCOMADATING , AND THEY SERVE A NICE BREAKFAST . LOCATED CLOSE TO RESTAURANTS AND STORES

As with all Holiday Inns, the hotel is nothing special; there is a very basic pool, and nothing else really by way of amenities. However, the rooms were really very nice and updated - nicer than the Marriott we stayed at on the same vacation. Don't let the boring common areas fool you, the inside of the room is really much better. The staff are also very nice and helpful. The woman at the front desk was able to get me a cab when I was running late to a wedding, and held it for me when I forgot something in my room. The breakfast is not great, but it is nice to grab a piece of fruit and a muffin before you head out for the day. You do need a car in this area though, cabs come from the city and are very expensive.
