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.

Latest San Diego Hotel Reviews

Average Rating for San Diego Hotel
(4.4 / 5) of 8518 reviews
Although a bit difficult to locate the entry drive, the hotel is beautifully situated, lit and landscaped. Check in was quick and easy although I was not provided with necessary information regarding [More] the breakfast certificate offer (ask for this info). The room was clean and orderly with only one minor problem I found. The only change I would make to the bathroom set-up would be to take the bath mat off the shower shelf and put it on the rim of the shower. Otherwise, the room was really great. We had a great night's sleep and went to our meeting refreshed. [Less]

Excellent place to stay!
By Rita G.
The property is clean, the rooms are fabulous and the staff is incredibly friendly. We will stay here again if we need to be in the La Mesa area. We were all very impressed with the quality of this [More] Holiday Inn!! [Less]

Excellent stay
By Papa14
This is a very nice hotel, the rooms are clean, they have modern furniture and the bathrooms are updated and big. The staff is friendly and very helpful. Reggie Simpson (Sales Associate) has gone out [More] of his way to accommodate me whenever I need a room or make last minute changes to my reservations. This is the hotel I stay at when traveling to San Diego. [Less]
Little modern Holiday Inn
By RobbiJ
This was a business/leisure trip and it met my business needs (dark, quiet room, quick breakfast, easy check in/out, free wifi.) It also met my leisure needs (good TV election, nice rooms, close to [More] SD activities, and nice lobby- was too cold to enjoy the fireplace) Overall good stay, the hotel is clearly new and cleaner. Great breakfast selection, and nice rooms. Parking is a little pricey, but I did always find a spot. Would recommend for sure. [Less]
My Holiday Inn Express stay
By pshukla
Loved to stay at this location because of sea world attraction and very cooperative staff. [Less]
Great stay - would have gotten 5 stars except for the powdered eggs
By Chadhoo
If you are planning on going to Sea World why wouldn't you stay here? It is about 2 miles from the park. When we checked in and asked about a place to eat, the desk recommended two places across the [More] street (a sushi place and thai place). Best thai place I have ever eaten at. Room was on the top floor. The best was very comfortable, clean sheets and towels. The bathroom was small but who spends a lot of time in the bathroom? Lots of parking all around the hotel so you don't have to hike to get to your car or room. Pool was small, more of larger but colder hot tub. Those horrible powered eggs... ugh. I was hoping they had changed to real eggs... life isn't perfect - but thank good ness for leftover Thai food. The staff was very nice and even though they had work to do, had a brief but pleasant conversation with my nine year old son. They went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and wanted at this hotel. [Less]
Nice place and good location
By Mar's
My only issue was that the bathroom is small and poor lighting. A little noise but can be handle. Otherwise, great staff, clean place, clean room. [Less]
