Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by chrisl123 Loud and a hair surprise.
Well i checked in and got a first floor room. My bad couldn't sleep at all. It sounded like i had elephants above my room. At 3:30am i couldnt take it anymore. I went to the office to complain and it chabged nothing. In the morning we went to eat the breakfast early and to my daughters surprise she got a hair in her biscuits and gravy. Not to appetizing. I went to the office to check out and to complain again, and the woman in the office told me they he'd allot of noise complaints that night and the manager would call me . I still haven't heard a word.

Great Service by all team members......from the front desk to the housekeeping team. Everyone was so friendly and made sure we were happy with our room etc.
Beds were very comfortable. Usually when I travel it takes a couple of days to get used to the bed. I slept so well the first night and the rest of the week, that we were in San Diego.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chssmaniac I really enjoyed my time there
Great location - didn't spend much time in the hotel itself, but when I did I enjoyed my stay. Make sure to go to Sushi Ota across the street for at least one meal - fantastic sushi!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JTNY Small Room but good location
We stayed at one king bed room, this is the smallest holiday inn hotel room we have ever stayed. The room is so small, it makes the room in cruise ship bigger. The elevator is not located by the lobby area, you have to walk out and enter another door to get to elevator. Who is the architect??
The location of this hotel is close to major highway and near to most of sightseeing in SD area. The stuffs are wonderful and friendly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FinlandVisitors great, great staff
it's surprising how much courteous and friendly staff can make a difference - based strictly on that factor alone, I would return to this hotel - the room is on the smaller side but the breakfast buffet is excellent - the overall atmosphere is great - kudos to the management and staff - they are doing a wonderful job - Marcia at the front desk was exceptional - Holiday Inn could not have a appointed a better person for the job

Staff friendly and helpful.
We arrived early, hot and very tired from a previous nite's hotel stay where we didn't get any sleep because of noisy neighbors. So the staff here at HI were very accomodating = gave us bottled water, had us go lounge by the pool till our room was ready! Very appreciated!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by susan10210 GREAT SERVICE. AVERAGE HOTEL EXPERIENCE
The staff was wonderful at the hotel. Everyone we met was helpful and positive.
Our room was very small and the "bathroom" accommodations were very unreasonable. The toilet and shower were in it's own separate location closed off with a door. The area was so small you couldn't open the door if you had the bath mat on the floor.
The sink and counter were in the room which made the room look messy and if someone was using the sink it was noisy in the room.
The bed and pillows were very comfortable so I got a good night's sleep.
The breakfast buffet was average. It had the standard fare. The staff maintained the area very well and they were very friendly.
The big thing for us was the traffic outside the hotel and the access to the hotel from the street. Having to make a U-Turn each time we returned to the hotel especially in the heavy traffic was not a good situation!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rhanda Quiet and centrally located
We needed to be close to La Jolla. We spent most of our time in Pacific Beach and La Jolla but did make a trip downtown. This facility was generally quiet. Occasional child running down the hallway but they were excited, too.
Standard Holiday Inn Express rooms, great housekeeping staff.
This location is right next to the original Rubios Fish Tacos which was a plus for us...we love Rubios for a quick snack

Very surprised to have a HOT Quality complimentary breakfast. The Breakfast staff and managers were outstanding. The actual Location of the hotel was good but surrounded by car Dealership so not much vacation appeal, however close to Beach access.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by kandice Just Ok
It's probably my fault, but we reserved a room with a King sized bed figuring that we'd get a little extra room space. Unfortunately, for the price we were pretty disappointed with the room size. We got a corner room that was small - very, very small. Other than that, the experience was great. Right down the road from the beach, great breakfast, great staff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JoanNDebNYC A fine place to stay
Check in was great, Lonnie was quick and set us up in a nice room for our 8 day stay. Room was clean and comfortable. Yes, the toilet/shower area is a bit small, but I don't spend a lot of time in either, so it was fine. The staff was very nice and helpful. Pool is small, so if you want a large pool to hang out by, this is not the place. But the area was clean and the water was great.
Breakfast buffet is on the nicer side of those types of buffets. Loads of options and the coffee was always fresh and hot.
It is covenient to everything in the area.
Would definitely recommend to anyone needing a nice, affordable place to stay in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JRee Fantastic Customer Service!
Our recent vacation to San Diego was made even more enjoyable by the excellent staff and the best customer service we have ever experienced! The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable, the breakfast selections were very good but the attention and friendliness of the staff was the best!! We were always greeted with a smile and a kind word. Even the front desk person called our room to make sure we had everything we needed. When we were a towel short, the housekeeping staff had a fresh towel at our door within a couple of minutes. The rooms are a bit tight, but we weren't there to stay in the rooms. After seeing the sights and playing on the beach all we needed were hot showers and comfortable beds and we got both.
Thanks for making our family vacation and trip to the San Diego area even better experience than we could have imagined!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by iflt1attendee iFLT attendee review: Luggage and items inside my luggage broke
My overall experience with Hilton had been great with phones call from manager checking how satisfied we were, and breakfast was awesome. However, on the last day of my stay after I checked out, I asked to keep my luggage inside the office until my transportation arrived. When I came and pick up the luggage, the handle was broken, and my food item inside another luggage was broken. On that day, the iFLT conference ended after checkout out time, and there were a lot of luggage from us. I was told that they had to moved the attendee's luggage to another bigger space, and I suspected the luggage were just being thrown off during the moving process. I did not get a chance to mention this to the manager after I picked up my luggage as I was in a rush to airport. It was at the airport that I saw all my broken items and handle.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Frenchie13 Not the brightest star in the HIE galaxy
I stay at the HIE between 10-15 nights a year and this property was one of the least stellar I have seen.
The hotel itself looks a little lackluster. I am not sure if this is because there is essentially zero green space and it is surrounded by car dealerships so it looks very industrial but it lacks the usual curb appeal of a HIE.
At check-in, I had a little hiccup even though I had called ahead to be sure that this particular issue would not be, well, an issue. I wonder why the employee I spoke with on the phone not two hours before I arrived could not have made a notation on the reservation.
The room was average for the HIE experience at best. The bed had a relatively thin mattress pad on top and the pillows were not up to usual quality.
The best worst part of this hotel is the postage stamp that they call a pool. I tried to use it each of the 4 nights I was there but if there were even a couple of other people in it, it became more of a glorified (hot) tub. Disappointing.
In all, this HIE is still better than a lot of the other options in the area but it is not a shining example of what HIE is or the level of quality a regular would expect.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sha27 Found blood stain on my sheets before getting into bed!
I was not able to place my last review for some reason so I am writing it again. If this doesn't work I will write my review else where. I asked for a room away from noise for our anniversary that we were celebrating. They put us in loud room facing the street? So I asked them to change the room and they asked me to check out a 2nd room I didn't except it because it was by the elevator and you can hear a ding every few minutes as people leave and use the elevator. So finally I found one I thought was decent, little did I know I would find a blood stain on my sheets before getting in. Called the desk and they brought an extra sheet showed them and they didn't act surprised. Upon check out I asked them to let the manager know and never got a call. You think they would give you a free stay or points cause that was disgusting. You should never have to deal with that when paying 100+ for a night.

This is a very nice hotel. Close to some nice restraunts. Not far from Seaworld. Easy to find. Staff on check in said he would take care of the Rewards but upon Check out, he had not. Staff, Marcia was very helpful and was going to take care of Rewards. Room was clean, beds very comfy..(I like soft). The only problem was the water, it smelled like Sulpher. When we mentioned it upon check out, Marcia told us there was bottled water available. We had brought our own bottled water so I did not ask if the bottled water was free. Parking lot was roomy. Rooms quiet. I would stay here again.

This hotel was clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They were always smiling. Breakfast was good most days, but biscuits were hard one day and gravy cold. This hotel is close to the airport, the beach and to Sea World. A convenient place to stay. We'll stay there again.
