Went on my trip with husband from Las Vegas. We weren't sure what to expect because opinions were mixed.. What a nice surprice!!! Cute hotel, with very friendly staff. we didn't know until last day of our stay that the entry to ocean side was right behind the hotel!!!so just steps from ocean! Not to mention on both sides of hotel there are few restaurants […] to chose from. Just wonderful walk. Thank you again Holiday Inn. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to where family was staying.."
Great place to stay close to the beachGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fairly near to the beach"
Maintenance and cleanliness was disgustingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Flew in from TX to go to The Belly Up Tavern"
Close to venue, the rooms were nice I stay at Holiday Inns when I travel, breakfast was good. It fulfilled all my needs for my two night stay. Upon checking in new person in training so it was a little slow but everybody has to learn their job, no inconvenience to me.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel close to the Belly Up"
Check in was quick and easy. The staff was very friendly. The continental breakfast was excellent!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Dated hotel that really needs some room upgrades"
Shower head was old and not cleaned and when shower was finished the water was ankle deep. Our room carpet was dirty, bathroom had so much caulking from years of water damage. Elevator bounced when coming to your floor looking for exact level before opening doors. Anyway you could say we were disappointed with quality of conditions for a over priced […] cost Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This was to end up a two weeks vacation in California, travelling by car from San Francisco via Los Angeles to San Diego. It was quite a good choice. There was plenty of breakfast, a swimming pool, a spa and two queen size beds. We would return to that hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"small parking spaces for starters"
The parking spaces were small, it was hard to get ot of car without hitting another car. I booked my room with expedia, for a king with a sofa bed and when a got to the room with all my stuff, there was no sofa bed. so i called down to lobby, I had to go down with all my stuff and family to get another room, then back up to a new room. This hotel was […] very noise and old. The free deluxe breakfast was good, but no where to sit had to go back to room without any juice or condiments. The only good thing about the hotel was, not to far from beach. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Enjoyed it but I think check in should be charged to about 12 or 100 I was going to del mar so did not get my room ttill after that was lateGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice and close to the beach"
I stayed in Solana beach for work. My 2 double bed room included a balcony, which I discovered upon opening the door, that my balcony overlooked the rental car company next door. I had a view of a National rental truck and a rooftop. Not exactly what I was expecting. The mattress was really not comfortable- thin and unsupportive, and the pillows were […] lumpy. The staff was really friendly, and breakfast was actually better quality than I expected. There was a wide variety of cold and hot foods to choose from. The pool area looked nice, although I didn't have time to spend time in it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Nothing really special about this hotel ,just ok one thing that was nice when we got there the Room they gave us was a handicap room with no balcony which we are not handicapped ,I asked if we could change to a balcony room which they did with a king bed no extra chargeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Okay Place. Nothing Special"
It was fine and did the job. Clean room and comfy bed. I had stayed in a similar Holiday Inn in Cardiff last time and that place was much nice. Feel like they tried to update this placed but didn't have the budget for a full update. For instance the bathroom has new mirrors and lights but an old sink and shower. The room has new furniture but old drapes […] and dingy carpet. Not trying to be picky just thought the one up the road was nicer. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel was fine.......just needed to use the WiFi"
The hotel was fine.....but was down in San Diego for business and their WiFi did not work in our room. We had several people with us that could not get on either.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice hotel close to beach,bikepath,food."
Really enjoyed the stay there. Decent hotel breakfast with long accessible hours. I was with daughter, so she was sleeping in, but I could get up, coffee up, go for run/swim/surf, and then come back and eat hearty with her. Good safe parking with good access to run stuff to and fro from room. kept out bikes in the room with us, but felt like we could […] have locked them outside. There was easy access to two beaches a block and Fletcher cove, which is local park with hoops, playground, toilets , and rinse showers. Really great stay over all for what we wanted--swm,bike,run,bsurf, and relax. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Trip with the grand Kids"
Hotel is nice, staff friendly and helpful. we needed to printout some papers we needed to sign and the front desk staff was able to help us out with that. There were a few large groups in house when we were there and pool area was not monitored and the Hot tub Nice was not very clean. Also Housekeeping was inconsistent. There were four of us in the […] room and 2 out of four days only had three towels , beds not completly put back together and coffee not restocked. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel close to the beach."
Hotel was nice, close to the beach. Staff was nice. Had some problems wiht our keys not working but the staff was right on it and got it fixed. Breakfast was really nice!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location and hotel for the price"
Hotel was next to some nice restaurants, bars and walking distance to the beach. The staff was friendly. The only minor complaint is when I checked in, there was no mention that our room had handicap accommodations. I would have preferred not to have this because the shower is a little different, but like I said it wasn't a huge deal. They offered a […] generous extended checkout which was convenient and gave us time to do laundry before checking out. Thank you! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"close beach access"
very close to the beach and other activities.....friendly and helpful staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the beach!"
It was a short walk to Solana Beach, which was not crowded at all. The continental breakfast was great. Free parking and wifi were great, but wifi reception was sketchy.Genuine Expedia guest review
"nice hotel for beach and San Diego trips"
I thought I was coming through the back entrance, which was really the front. Needs more personality, bath tub must of overflown from previous guests, carpet was wet in front of bathroom which got our socks wet. Later found the problem, tub stopper wasn't open. (They must of not known what to do.) Otherwise good time. Thank you.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very affordable hotel near the Del Mar Fair Grounds and all beaches. Warm cookies and staff in the lobby, fresh atmosphere, clean rooms, easy parking. Close to everything costal and Via De La Valle shopping. Great stay!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Couldn't ask for a better location!!! The hotel was right off the highway and close to everything we were there for.Genuine Expedia guest review
"food and places"
closeness to beaCH AND SOME VERY GOOD EATING PLACES made our stay very nice, although the room we had was big enough for 5 people there was no extra seating other than the beds. sofa sleeper was poor at best, mattress was tooooo thin.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great location and friendly staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Will stay here again!"
When we arrived the staff greeted us and was very courteous. Hotel was clean and breakfast was great for our kids. Loved that the beach was just a block away. We will definitely stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice free breakfast. View from room overlooking dirt lot but kept us exploring instead. Close to beach and shopping.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to everything!"
We had a great stay. Our only complaint is mattress on the sofa bed. I had to call for more blankets to lay on top of the mattress so the 5 and 6 year old would stop feeling the wires so bad. They slept in my bed with me the first night ( we stayed a week). I think management needs to go sleep on these sofa beds. The hotel was wonderful and the breakfast […] served in the mornings was great, hot and a very clean dining room. We will stay again, but bring folding cots for the kids.

When you are searching and see a Holiday Inn, you might think ugh, Holiday Inn. The Holiday Inn Express Solana Beach-Del Mar is nothing but pure amazing. More of a boutique hotel, instead of a chain, this staff is more than amazing. Friendly atmosphere. Amazing insight and VERY friendly. Close to the beach, pizza port and many other amazing things.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to the beach and good retaurants"
Really nice. Friendly helpful staff ... especially during breakfast. Comfortable room with good wireless. Really enjoyed the pool plus a 5 min walk to beach access. Hallways were just being painted when we were there (early June) plus some other work to the building. Should be great now. Would definitely stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not up to Holiday Inn Express Standards"
Tarnished bathroom fixtures and drain, leaking bathtub faucet, uncomfortable occasional chair too far from TV, shabby door to parking garage. Didn't give me a feeling of a quality stay. 2nd time here, won't be back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It was ok, I'd use it again."
Front staff were nice. The pillows in the bed (yes, all 4 pillows and extra 2 we asked for) were very lumpy as if they had been overused. The garage had an area FULL of what looked like materials they were using to upgrade rooms such as ironing boards, lamps, matresses.Genuine Expedia guest review
Really enjoyed the accomodation. The only negative was the a/c in one of the 2 rooms which wasn't working properly. Was very impressed with the personnel, especially Jess who checked us in. She was exceedingly friendly and went out of her way to help us with not only checking in but also assistance in our ultimate destination.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean, comfortable, yummy breakfast"
3rd time staying here and I always look forward to it. A couple blocks from the track, restaurants, and beautiful beach. Good neighborhood for running early in the dark or walking home from dinner/drinks late at night. Big dinning room with delicious breakfast and the kindest man serving and making sure everything just right!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Really enjoyed the area the only draw back we saw there was a lot of street construction real close. But very nice area and hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect for our needs"
We were there to see a show nearby and it was within walking distance of everything we did, so we opted for this choice. Not only was parking easy and plentiful, the staff was welcoming and professional, the lobby was really neat and designed nicely. Beds were comfortable and there were plenty of towels in the bathroom. I was originally concerned that […] our room would be noisy as we were very close to the elevator, but it was incredibly quiet. Very clean place. Great value. Would come back here in an instant. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good business stopover"
Good and comfortable stay. Friendly host. Lots of AC plugs and good internet speed. Decent breakfast. Would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We have always returned to this Holiday Inn. It is obvious the staff works hard to provide the best service. I am especially greatful for one staff member who found clothing items I left in the room before checking out. He or she found them and saved them and I was able to retrieve them. So happy I needed those items for the rest of our trip.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"perfect for everyone"
great location. Clean comfortable rooms. Excellent restraunts near by.Walking distance to Del Mar race trackGenuine Expedia guest review
"wait for the renovations"
This was not a good value for the price. They lobby had been renovated and looked good. The rest of hotel had filthy carpet and needed major work. The elevator was horrible, so tried using stairs but passkeys did not allow it. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable, but dated. I would not choose this hotel again. Very disappointed for the price they […] charged for this. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to beach"
Staff was great! Had to move rooms because the air conditioner kept shutting off. The hotel was going through a remodel and the lobby and breakfast areas looked almost complete. Our room was ok. The bathroom should definitely be updated. I think once all the remodeling is complete the hotel will be very nice. We were close to all the beaches, golf courses […] and San Diego was right down the freeway. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Painting in process, cold atmosphere and a step down from comfortable. It was ok... if you are going to pay $100+ for a room sure want it to be inviting. Continental breakfast ok... pancake machine broken so limited selection. Pool small and again not an inviting area to hang out. Would look for another!Genuine Expedia guest review
Our stay was fine; the pillows were a ittle hard. Beds were comfortable. The stopper in the bath tub was a little askewed. Our cable wasn't on, so Javier, the maintenance personnel arrived promptly after we notified the front desk. Very courteous and helpful staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

second time staying at this hotel for overnight business. Both times, rooms clean, hotel close to everything in Del Mar and the morning breakfast was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was freshly painted, I still could smell the new paint. The room was clean and the bedcwas comfortable. It was next to the City Hall and very close.to Cendros Ave., the main area for restaurants. I like the breakfast served with most basic foods, they were plentyful. It was a nice stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
