Property Description

Hotel offers great value fo the budget conscious guest or business traveler and meeting planner. Incorpated into your rate whether you are an individual or a group is our full buffet breakfast with a variety of hot breakfast items. We also offer complimentary parking and Hi-speed internet in bo the meeting room and guest rooms. Our business center and fitness are also complimentary. The hotel went through a full renovation as it transferred over from a Comfort Inn to a Holiday Inn Express and was completed in November of 2008. I has still kept its California country charm! We’re conveniently located off Interstate 5 exit 40 Birminham exit less than .05 miles from the beach in the beautiful seaside village of Cardiff By The Sea/Encinitas. Legoland is nine miles away, and we’re central to the best San Diego beaches including Del Mar, Torrey Pines, Solana Beach, Moonlight Beach, Carlsbad State Beach and more and Palomar McClellen Airport. We’re centrally located to all major attractions including Sea World, San Diego Zoo & Wild Animal Park, Disneyland, Universal Studios, and Knott’s Berry Farm. An AARP/Senior friendly hotel and a family friendly environment. An ideal hotel for the business or government traveler as well, due to the close proximity of business parks and military installations.
