Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Devilmaker Good value and accomodating staff
While you can surely spend more or less for a room I believe this hotel provides the best value. The staff was extremely accommodating. I have always had problems parking my long bed, 4 door, crew cab in the tight spaces you find all over San Diego. The staff moved their hotels vans for me every day to allow an easy access parking spot that didn't involve me walking several blocks. They were always asking us if we needed anything and if we were comfortable. We very much enjoyed our stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chris717 Comfortable bed and great service
I was in San Diego for business, so I had to find a hotel at a decent rate. This Holiday Inn Express did not disappoint. The room was very attractive and clean, and nice to spend time in.
My only complaints are that as someone who is dedicated to his own fitness, the fitness room at this hotel only consisted of treadmills - there was no resistance training available - and the eggs that they served at breakfast were not enjoyable.
The overall experience of my stay was very positive, though, and I would recommend this location to other travelers.

Typical hotel room for the Express brand - not bad for a good night sleep.
Bathroom was showing age, poor lighting, slippery tub not pleasant.
Staff was very helpful, friendly, explained about the area and got us exploring.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by breezycup Better than typical HIE in service
This hotel is off the beaten path in Old Town in San Diego; in fact, if you wish to go to Old Town its a good walk so they offer shuttle service. The hotel staff is more than ready and eager to please to provide your transportation needs and any other needs you may have. I took the shuttle to Old Town and walked back (needed the exercise) and it was not bad, although a little warm. It is near to the airport and if you ask for a room away from the freeway that runs next to it, you don't hear the traffic. I would definitely stay again. Great underground secure parking at no charge!

Very worthwhile stay. The staff was especially helpful, the bed comfortable, and amenities in the bathroom were a nice touch. The only problem was not being able to connect to my business server from the room (no problem with public internet). Very close to my business appointments and close to Old Town where I like to eat at night. Parking was free and enclosed. I took advantage of the breakfast each morning, which helped me each morning to get started. The food was very good, as was the coffee. I also used the business center to check my airline reservations (no wait to use the computer). A good stay. Thanks!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LCC43 Great staff made the visit worth it
I arrived on the evening of July 8th only to discover that the reservation I made where for the Holiday Inn Express downtown and not the Airport location. I wish I could remember HER name but she went out of her way to help me fix my mistake. With her assistance the downtown location allowed me to change my reservation from there to the airport location with no fee. Furthermore she provided great advice on the local restaurants close by the hotel. Both her and her colleague that work that evening were great! Having great staff is important and the management at the Holiday Inn Express here got it right! Thanks

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kajack Great stay!
I enjoyed my stay at this location. The staff was excellent, especially Elia, a very professional and charming gentleman who took the extra time to make sure I was informed of all that they had to offer and the local area attractions He answered all of my questions without seeming hurried or rushed. That said, all of the staff I had contact with was very nice and helpful.
The rooms are nice and the parking is free, as well as the WiFi and a real breakfast every morning.
I would definitely stay here anytime I need a hotel, and I would recommend it to my friends and family.

We have stayed at many excellent IHG properties. This is our favorite. We love the location, just a walk or shuttle ride to Old Town. It is also with in walking distance of the trolley.
The best feature of the hotel is the staff.
We would like to thank:
Yasmine & Kylene for their help with our reservation.
Dolores, Glades & Ghada for the awesome breakfasts.
Vangie for putting us in "our room".
Alex & Hadir for the shuttle rides.
Josh for the front desk help and for taking our nightly photo.
We feel like family when we stay here and we see the staff interact with all the guest in this way.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jan05 Shuttle service is free and outstanding
My family and I had a wonderful experience at this hotel. Customer service was excellent. I would like to especially compliment the shuttle drivers, with the highest rating going to Fernando. We returned our rental car and depended on the free hotel shuttle the rest of our trip. We used the shuttle twice for the airport, and twice for Old Town. Our flight was early morning, and comforting to know we could rely on the shuttle to efficiently get us to the airport on time. The hotel was very clean and comfortable, as well. I highly recommend this hotel

The hotel is average and was selected for its park and fly package and proximity to the airport. However, the staff were outstanding, without exception, and couldn't do enough to help us. This made for a very pleasant stay. Also, we particularly appreciated the secure underground parking for our car during our absence.

We really enjoyed our stay. We were visiting San Diego for our marine's graduation. The staff was wonderful. They arranged shuttles for us for dinner and arranged a driver to bring us to Seaport village for a day. I must say this was the most helpful friendly staff I have ever seen in the industry. They were genuine and courteous and made us feel welcome. I would recommend any family visiting MCRD or San Diego to stay here,
Thank you so much.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sabrina52 Great staff and good rooms
As usual, Jose and Josh checked us in with efficiency and congeniality. I also need to commend Ghaedee on her personable and efficient way of handling her tasks with grace, whether she is keeping the lobby immaculate or assisting in the breakfast room. She is helpful and very nice while at it. Dolores runs a tight ship in the breakfast area. I only wish the hotel would change the egg omelets with Velveeta cheese for regular eggs in any shape or form (unfortunately, lactose intolerant). In the shower , in this day and age, a handle bar would be much appreciated- not that we are disabled but the floor in the tub is quite slippery, not skid resistant. Kaylee was nice as always, as we checked out. The staff and room amenities make this always our hotel of choice. Thank you, Airport-Old Town Holiday Inn Express.

This hotel is one of the best I have stayed at. The free shuttle to the airport and also to the local resturants in Old Town took the stress off my trip. This hotel's service is remarkable. whoever is in charge of training is 5 star. Look no further because you may find a cheaper place to spend the night but you won't find a better one.

Fuimos de vacaciones a San Diego, y nos pareció la mejor opción en cuanto a hospedaje, ya que está en el precioso Old Town y con la facilidad de la estación de Trolebús y el tren muy cerca. La atención del personal excelente, todos súper amables y atentos. El servicio de shuttle súper bien. Definitivamente nos volveríamos a hospedar ahí.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jask Great Staff and Clean Hotel
This was a nice clean hotel with a great staff that was always very helpful with your needs. One complaint would be that every day we had to ask for 1 or 2 sets of towels and washcloths because they only left 2 or 3 even though I made the room reservation for 4 people. Our family stayed for 8 nights while vacationing in San Diego. They offer free shuttles to several attractions and to close by Old Town. You should know that some of the shuttles to places like the Zoo and Sea World only drop off and pick up once each day and the times won't give you a full day at either. We used the one for the zoo and had enough time to see most of it without being too rushed, but there's no way we could've used it for Sea World. The room seemed a little smaller than most Holiday Inn Express, but it is built on a very small property. The other inconvenience if you don't have a car is there's not really anything near this hotel. Old Town is within walking distance but it is a pretty good walk and taking a shuttle or walking every day to get to a restaurant did get a little old, especially when Old Town doesn't have much variety with most of the restaurants being Mexican.

This place is great. It is located in a great area, not far from all of the attractions that San Diego has to offer. The rooms were clean, staff was excellent, hospitality services were amazing. The free breakfast is one of the best I've ever had. I loved my stay here!
