"would stay again"
close to the beach,staff very accomodating, hotel a little outdatedGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel for a quick trip"
The loved the fact that the hotel was so close to the beach.The staff were great, and assisted in any way possible. The breakfast was good, but the pancake machine kept malfunctioning, so we had disappointed little ones. The location of the hotel allowed us to venture out on great day trips. Overall, the hotel met our mini vacations needs.Genuine Expedia guest review
The location was great, beautiful beach town with lots of good food around. I thought the room was clean until my 1yr old kept finding things, grosses thing he found to play with was an old toothbrush under the bed. Also after we took showers the water was constantly dripping out of the spout. I would go back and stay there again, the price was great […] and the location was key. It's about 15-20 to San Diego and 15-20 to legoland. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Holiday Inn Express near Del Mar"
The Holiday Inn Express Solana Beach - Del Mar has large rooms, plenty of free parking, a nice pool, and very good breakfast. It is also walking distance to the beach - go out the back of the hotel and turn right (north) and walk 1-2 blocks. There is then a marked path to access the beach on the left, with a set of stairs at the end of the path. Our […] only complaint is that the wifi was very spotty at the hotel.

The matresses were very uncomfortable and springy. The AC unit was very loud...sounded like a jet taking off every time it came on. Bathrooms are not updated...but clean enough. Breakfast was pretty good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location - Good Budget Hotel Close to Beach"
Solana Beach is probably as close to you can get to a small sleepy beach town. But has a great music venue, Belly Up... Great Beer - Culture Brewery .. Great Beaches... Quiet town, nice people..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Suite is Not a SUITE in Holiday Inn Express Hote"
I reserved a hotel SUITE for five people. Perhaps it's the French that threw you off, but a SUITE is a group of rooms joined together. We had ONE room for five people. VERY uncomfortable and not what we expected. We were offered an extra room for extra charge. That is not good customer service. The parking lot was being painted, of course, so we had […] to always park in the covered parking off a busy street. The only good thing was the breakfasts. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Walking distance from the Belly Up"
Stayed there when I went to a concert at the Belly Up which was less than a 10 minute walk. Very busy road with few things right by hotel but still within walking distanceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"All good, but delayed check in."
We had a great time, we live in Rancho San Diego so this was a staycation for us. Other than a delayed check in everything was fine. The beach and very diverse shops on Cedros were a long walk or short drive away. The complementry breakfast was a nice addition.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Second stay,still very satisfied"
In SD for a conference, stayed an extra day and did not want to pay very high rates at conference hotel. I stayed in this HI Express last October and was satisfied, so I booked my extra night here. Still very satisfied. They let me have a late checkout at no charge and it was again a very pleasant experience. Definitely recommended.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Walking distance to downtown area and beach. Great stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We have had several stays at this location due to continuing appointments at Scripps La Jolla. Staff has always provided whatever assistance we needed. We will continue to stay at this Holiday Inn Express Solana Beach/Del Mar. We highly recommend this business for it professionalism and comfort.Genuine Expedia guest review

Good Breakfast,.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pancakes for breakfast!"
Aside from a cricket following us into the room, the stay was pleasurable. Complimentary breakfast was great.. pastries, sausage patties and pancake machine! Loved it!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the Solama beach"
This was a nice moderately priced hotel. We had an nice room on the third floor with a King bed. It had a comfy pillowtop mattress and a clean, tidy room. We arrived a day early and were able to get a room on the second floor for that night. It was more worn and the queen beds older and not so comfy, but we moved to our original booked room the next […] night. The hotel had a nice heated small outdoor pool and hottub, complementary buffet breakfast, and exceptionally nice staff. The parking is okay for cars, but we had a truck and trailer. We were able to park out front when we needed to but it didn't fit well there. Any bigger rigs might be a problem. The hotel is also an easy walk to the beach. Nice when parking at the beach was expensive. I would recommend this hotel but suggest booking a third floor King bed. These rooms appear to be less used and therefore nicer.

For the price, worth the stay. clean room, nice location, well kept amenities. Not super high class, but really great for the level of hotel this is.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great hotel and not just for the price"
The staff was great, the room was perfect, and the bed I have no words one of the best nights sleep I've hadGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"walking distance to the beach"
Great place for a nice get away weekend! You can be on the beach in 5 min for a morning walk (or swim). Breakfast in the hotel is included but not the best… orange juice was really water and coffee was not too good either. But there are places to eat breakfast within walking distance. Room was clean, but the drain in the bathtub was slow, causing water […] to rise a bit while taking a shower. Not a huge deal, but something to be aware of. The price was reasonable, so we may go back some day. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I was specifically looking for a hotel that had balconies for the rooms, and I thought I saw furniture on the balconies in the photos. Unfortunately, there was no furniture on my balcony, which made it unuseable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"5 star overall"
We enjoyed our 2 nights stay in this hotel. It is convenient location where our relatives who lives in San Diego. We came here to attend a family reunion. The beach is very close to walk. Breakfast is good. Very clean, close to all restaurant and freeways.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"One night business stay"
I was a little disappointed when I actually saw the room. I paid for a suite and the "suite" didn't look like the pictures. It was smaller than expected, but the bed was comfortable bu the bathroom was extremely small in comparison to others. The noise level was low, since it was in the back of the hotel. The "breakfast" was a step up from the typical […] breakfasts, with a good selection of items. The staff was nice a friendly. The location is close to the Metro station and actually close enough to the freeway to make it convenient. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel doesn't have any amenities outside of room. Inside, you would think u r staying at a much more expensive hotel as room is clean and they had expensive covers and it did not smell. If all u want is a nice room for a good pruce this is the place.Genuine Expedia guest review
Quiet, close to everything in Solana Beach- nice staff-clean rooms- easy parking.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable middle-low cost room"
We stayed here for one night. It's about .7 miles from the Amtrak station, an easy and pleasant walk. The breakfast was excellent for being included with the room - biscuits and gravy, pancakes, instant oat meal, pastries, cold cereal. Very good experience - would have given it 5s all around except that would imply perfection.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great for the price"
This hotel is super close to the beach but it's right next to an Alamo car rental. Our room sat right next to it and they were vacuuming and cleaning cars first thing in the morning. But you can't beat being close to the beach. Oh and if you're looking for dining, do not go to Woody's, most places are in walking distance.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent value for Solana Beach area"
Decent but not superlow price.Worth it though. Very easy to get to and very convenient if you want to be in SB, Del Mar, or Encinitas. Short walk to a great beach. Short walk to some decent food and shops. OK hotel breakfast-better than some I have had. Definitely would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Solana Beach, CA for a girls weekend. It was in great proximity to the beach and to the concert that we were going to. The hotel is a little run down, in need of some updates in the bathrooms especially. Because of this is didn't appear very clean in the bathrooms, the base boards need some serious attention and […] the tub dripped constantly, (the handle was loose). The staff was courteous and helpful. The hot breakfast was ok, nice to have something more than a pastry and cold cereal, but not the best. We ended up going up the street to a cafe on the first morning. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"I left my pillow there"
I left my favorite pillow there and nobody called or sent an email to let me know they found it ...hard for them to think it was their's...considering it had a real old olive colored pillowcase on it. Bummer.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great little hotel"
Nice hotel that met all my needs for a quick stay. The hot breakfast and great staff make it my go to place when i'm there for business. Keep up the good work.Genuine Expedia guest review
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!

"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

"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

"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

"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
