Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TravelingGrams Excellent facility!
We choose to stay near the airport in San Diego and our stay with Holiday Inn in their new building has been our best experience. The restaurant there is charming, good food and friendly courteous staff. Will choose Holiday Inn next trip!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jae32 Best Holiday Inn I've stayed at
I got a Suite in the newer building, so my review is only for the new building as I never stayed at the old.
Clean. Spacious. Amenities were all there. Great views. Had a nice patio as well.
Check-in was a breeze and the staff was courteous.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Brian1713 New building isn't worth the $$
We came to San Diego for a week for my son's graduation from Marine boot camp. I spent considerable time researching a place to stay that would have a view. I am a loyal Holiday Inn customer and try to stay there when I can so I was a bit biased to stay here. We booked a room in the new building for big $$ and talked the in-laws into doing the same. My father-in-law enjoys having a view. Our 3rd floor rooms were nice......but where was a view?? We had a good view of the buildings across the street and a few small boats in a marina. In hindsight I would've booked a room in the old building for much less money and a comparable view of nothing. The rooms are called bayside, which is geographically correct, but you wouldn't know it by looking out the 3rd floor windows. The dryer in the 3rd floor laundry must be one of those fancy zero energy models because it took about $5 in quarters to actually dry the clothes. How about a little heat?? Elevator was broke the morning we were leaving so had to haul heavy luggage down the stairs. At least it going downhill.
I expected more for the cost of the rooms.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by joeref86 nice stay
I enjoyed my stay. The hotel is being expanded and a lot of money appears to be put into renovations including the room. I got a very good rate and it even included an airport shuttle. The pool was well kept. My only area of dissatisfaction was that the pool area was taken over for several hours by some reception, which appeared to be a funeral luncheon. While I understand the hotel needs to book events, why have this take over the pool area. I didn't feel comfortable crashing their event to take a swim and I doubt others would either.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by railsignalman Great View and Great Weather
Stayed in a new room on the Bayside and just loved the view of the harbor. Loved the large windows and wooden slat shades. The bed comfort was top notch. Close to the airport and still nice and quiet. I always enjoy my stays at Holiday Inns.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Adelgado Great service
The service and staff were great. Also, the location is wonderful. Lastly, the rooms were very clean.
My state rate was high and it did not include breakfast. My initial room was poor, but I was given another room the next day. Lastly, I was charged for items that I did not purchase.
Overall, using a 10 point scale, I would rate this place an 8.5. Note: I travel a lot and stay at numerous high end hotels.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Holidayinnregular25 Oaid extra for poolside
The pictures on the website of this property are severely misleading. Poolside as it was called on the website was no where near being beside a pool. I paid extra for a second floor turn to the right pool view. Main building looks nice but I was in a satellite building with open outside entrance. Room was old and not very clean. Balcony was open to anyone. I will not stay hear next time in am in San Diego. It is close to the airport though.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CherylAnnB Holiday Inn Bayside SanDiego
Our stay was the highlight of an 8 day road trip. The staff took care to make our stay special, we were celebrating a milestone. The room was beautiful and spacious overlooking San Diego Harbour. Free use of bicycles was a bonus and something we enjoyed so much. Thank you Holiday Inn for taking such good care of us, we will definitely be back.
