Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BLUIZES65 Enjoyable Stay
Hotel staff very friendly and helpful. Clean and comfortable room. Would have liked to have had a jacuzzi available, but it was not a deciding factor on this particular trip. Breakfast should be extended longer to at least 11:00.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hbhillz Nice Property and Super Friendly Employees
I was expecting just a moderate hotel with moderate amenities and I was so pleasantly surprised by this HIE. The staff greets you every time you walk by one of them, the property is well maintained, the rooms are clean, and the breakfast is GREAT. Fresh apples are waiting for you in the lobby, and always fresh towels at the pool. I was surprised at how small the pool was, but it was perfect temperature and well, the beach is right now the street! Thanks for a much better than expected stay at your property.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cdwilde Started rough but improved
We had a few issues with our room the first night, but after bringing it to management attention, they responded quickly and to our satisfaction. The room was a typical 2 queen bed room. The breakfast was also typical. Overall, the location was good (near airport and major attractions) and the hotel was pretty standard.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Aldomi Enjoyed our stay
We really enjoyed our stay. The room was spotlessly clean, and the staff was exceptional. The entire staff was friendly and helpful. They made the stay very comfortable. I don't think I have ever stayed at a hotel with better staff. The pool is only big enough to get wet and cool off. Don't expect to swim. But the bed was extremely comfortable. You can't walk to Mission Beach unless you really want some exercise, but Mission Bay Park was close by. If you don't have a desire to stay right at the beach, this hotel is a great option. Easy access to the freeway to go anywhere you want.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ToddlerMom Couldn't have been more happy
Wow. I've stayed at Holiday Inn Express in the past, but this location goes above and beyond. Room was very clean, bathroom was clean. Key card entry to get to room hallways made me feel very safe. Hotel was between car sales lots, which are quiet businesses, so no noise during the day or night. Breakfast was hot and delicious (Do not miss the biscuits and gravy. They rival any that I've paid good money for.) Breakfast items were freshened and stocked right up to the minute they closed the doors at 9:30. The staff was very friendly and every single staff member we passed at the desk, or in the hall always smiled and said hello. Housekeeping must have seen our kids clothes and toys, because the 2nd day they left extra soap and shampoo (so thoughtful!) Also, either we got really lucky, or the front desk staff is great at their job, because we have a toddler and they put us in a room right over the lobby so we didn't have to worry about his heavy running feet. (If you have active kids - Room 201 is great. End unit, above the lobby.) My only very minor complaint is that parking was really tight. The lot was always overcrowded when we arrived late at night, and the spaces are too narrow for vans and SUVs. There is decent parallel parking by their back wall, so not a huge problem, but it wasn't ideal. Overall, a fantastic hotel, and the only one I would ever consider when coming back to the San Diego area.
