A perfect stay
I loved the free breakfast - so many tasty options! I also loved that the bath products are Bath & Body Works. The whole place was very clean and quiet; I really loved staying there.
There isn't a ton of lighting in the bathroom, so it's a little dark while showering. It's not a problem at all but that's my one minor complaint about the room.
Excellent value for money - very helpful staff
Had a two week extended stay, staff at hotel were amazingly friendly and helpful, especially front desk staff and breakfast room staff. Breakfast buffet was ample and plentiful.... Wifi connection was excellent and there was the added bonus of a laundry room... Highly recommend a stay if holidaying in the area. Would recommend a car to move about.
The rooms are clean, and the staff was terrific. The front desk staff and the house cleaning staff were outstanding.
A little hard to find. A bigger sign near the road would be helpful.
The room was very comfortable and clean. Nice breakfast.
We forgot some shoes in the closet on a Thursday. I called the next day to ask if they had been found and they said they did not have them. We had to go that way on Friday and stopped in to ask again. Front desk clerk remembered my call and claimed they were still missing. We asked to talk to housekeeping and she found the shoes for us. Don't give up after one call if you forget something. Also, while they claim to be pet friendly, there is no grassy area for them.
Nice pool, awesome bed, enjoyed my stay!
Couldn't take a bath because it was always draining the water :(
Outstanding Service and Hospitality
From check-in to check-out this Holiday Inn exceeded my expectations of what I would expect in a hotel. Guri (excuse the misspelling) at the front desk made my check in process and my stay a 5 star experience. Ian on the Night Audit made the evenings and early mornings exceptionally outstanding and comforting. I will always look recommend and stay at this location after this experience. Thank you all for making my stay so enjoyable.
The location is a bit strange and off the map. But once located, it is easy to find. One recommendation I would make is to communicate when guests have a late checkout. On several occasions I had a 2pm checkout which was approved and verified with management but yet the house keepers walked in at 11:00-1:00pm. Communication is key in situations such as these.
Love staying at this hotel
Close to Camp Pendleton. My son is a Marine! Close to freeways Clean hotel Continental breakfast was good
