Generally regarded as the best hotel in Escondido, CA, the Holiday Inn Express has an easily reached location next to I-15 (exit 31: W Valley Parkway), in an busy area with many restaurants and stores, including those of Escondido Promenade Mall just to the south. Downtown San Diego is 30 miles further south, but the proximity of the interstate puts all area attractions just a short drive away. The 84 rooms & suites are on 3 floors, and many have views of the rolling hills that surround the town. The hotel is set back a little from the main road so has a relatively quiet setting, partly hidden from I-15 by a line of trees. The main amenities are free continental breakfast, an outdoor pool, whirlpool, guest laundry and fitness center.
Near the north edge of Escondido, the Best Western Escondido Hotel offers 100 rooms (all with microwave & refrigerator) on 4 floors, free continental breakfast, an outdoor pool and a whirlpool. The neighborhood is mostly residential, with the lawns of Rod McLeod Park on one side and interstate 15 running by a short distance west - access is via W El Norte Parkway (exit 33). Downtown Escondido is 2 miles south, with San Diego 35 miles away. The nearest restaurants are a few blocks east or west along the Parkway.
In the same complex as the Holiday Inn Express, Escondido's Comfort Inn hotel is quite a large, 93 room building close to numerous malls, shops and restaurants. It is 15 miles from the nearest beach, 30 miles north of San Diego along interstate 15, and 50 miles from Anza Borrego Desert State Park
. The inn provides accommodation towards the cheaper end of the market, with amenities of outdoor heated pool, whirlpool, exercise room, free continental breakfast (deluxe), and a refrigerator in each room.
The Quality Inn is one of the more central hotels in Escondido, an easy walk from such locations as Escondido Square, Civic Center Plaza and Escondido Transit Center, while being just a mile from I-15 and so well connected to other San Diego area attractions. The T-shaped, exterior corridor building has a good-sized outdoor pool at the front, plenty of parking on all sides, and interior amenities of free hot breakfast, guest laundry and basic business services. A refrigerator and microwave are installed in all 77 rooms, and a sofa bed in some. There is one restaurant (Mexican) adjacent and many more one block east along Escondido Blvd.
Another hotel along W El Norte Pkwy on the north side of Escondido, the Rodeway Inn is a small place, just 25 rooms, but provides basic, clean accommodation for visitors to the San Diego Area. Exit 33 of interstate 5 is one mile west; most area attractions are within a 30 mile drive. The hotel has a relatively quiet location along a residential side road, though there are plenty of shops and restaurants less than half a mile away. The rather limited amenities include free continental breakfast, guest laundry, a refrigerator/microwave in each room, and a few suites with a kitchenette.
