Featured San Diego Hotels

Holiday Inn Express® offers a variety of hotels in San Diego's most popular areas.
Get a clean room, comfortable bed and friendly service at a price that leaves a little something extra in the budget for souvenirs and attractions.

Beautiful beaches, warm weather and variety of outdoor activities make San Diego an ideal vacation destination for families.

Mission Bay is home to Sea World and Belmont Park, a historic seaside amusement park where you can ride the Giant Dipper rollercoaster (if you dare) or splash around in the Plunge pool.
Both attractions were present at the Belmont's 1925 opening!

Head North to La Jolla and watch the seals play in the Children's Pool or shop the area's many art galleries and charming boutiques. If you're in town on business, look for a hotel in San Diego that's close to the downtown area (luckily, Holiday Inn Express has quite a few).

Here, you'll find the San Diego Convention Center and the Gaslamp Quarter, a popular entertainment district that offers excellent restaurants, year-round festivals and a short walk to PetCo Park, home of the San Diego Padres.

Whether you're visiting for business or leisure, looking for family fun or a variety of activities within walking distance of your San Diego hotel, Holiday Inn Express can help you plan your next trip to this great California city.

Great staff. Construction mess no parking
By watsonii
Staff are by far the friendliest and consistently so.Pool and hot tub were dirty. Room is in serious need of an update and, thus, the price was not appropriate for the condition of the room. Parking [More] was tough. Had to park a few blocks away the majority of my stay. Construction is a mess so it would be fair to say that post-construction condition might prove to be an improvement. Will be returning to La Jolla in January but will not be returning to the property if construction is not completed. I would definitely return if complete, however as we (my family and I) truly enjoyed the staff and some of the other guests. I am with hope that the room we stayed in will be refurbished once the main building's construction is completed. If you are staying for one or two nights, the hotel is adequate. Again, GREAT staff. I couldn't say enough about them. Kudos to the management for hiring and keeping them happy as they were the highlight of our stay. [Less]
great place right near beach

lovely simple hotel right near the beach, few minutes walk; great breakfast with all the basics; rooms a bit worn out but comfortable. some of the rooms in the front are extremely noisy from street [More] traffic, had to move room. [Less]

By Viking1012
On my most recent stay the staff at the Holiday Inn was very friendly and helpful with anything I needed. The bar and restaurant was very nice with many specials and great food. The staff also was [More] very helpful and friendly in this area. I enjoyed my stay and will stay at this hotel in the future. [Less]
Best Hotel in the Area!
By hmz22
I had originally booked a standard room for my boyfriend and I for our stay after the Marine Corps Ball (location is super close to Miramar base), and when we checked in, the concierge upgraded us to [More] a suite! The staff is so friendly and sincere, they make your stay extremely comfortable! The rooms are clean and there is little to no noise (above, outside, or from the surrounding rooms). I would highly recommend this Holiday Inn to any family or friends staying in San Diego. It's very close to shopping and food as well. [Less]
Comfortable bed and great dining
By 5Grandma
We went for a quick sweet at the restaurant. My husband wanted a sundae, not on the menu. The waiter assured him it wouldn't be a problem and he served him with a beautiful sundae. We slept well with [More] the great mattress. We were surprised to have to pay for parking, but appreciated the ticket for easy in and out. [Less]
Clean comfortable and quiet
By SharkLady
Staff was professional, helpful and friendly. Hotel was spotless and clean, with tropical decor. The main building looks like the bow of a ship...very cool as hotel was near the harbor. Will [More] definitely stay here again. [Less]
