Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good travel experience I like the Holiday Inn Express in downtown San Diego. It is close to the Trolley and the shuttle service provides quick access to the San Diego International Airport. 08 August 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A nice stay It was comfortable to stay at. It was just what I needed for the trip. It is a little bit out of the way, but close enough to where I needed to be 06 August 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great hotel with good location The hotel is situated centrally - a number of good cafes and restaurants are situated within 5-minutes walk. It is only 15 minutes walk to Gaslamp Quarters. The room is spacious, comfortable and clean. It has a balcony which overlooks the beautiful city. There are good variation of food at breakfast (which, is complimentary). There are also complimentary lemonade and water as you walk in the hotel. Free shuttle service is available to selected locations. This made travelling a lot easier and hassle-free. Ask the helpful and friendly staff about it. They are prepared to recommend or advice on tourist attractions in the city. 04 August 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by nur zum Schlafen ok - sonst eher nicht zu empfehlend Das Hotel ist sichtbar in die Jahre gekommen. Die Zimmer und die Anlage sind deutlich abgewohnt. Die Balkontür hatte 3 unterschiedliche Verschließmechanismen, von denen 2 nicht mehr gingen (vermutlich auf Einbruchsversuche zurückzuführen - daher wurde ein neuer Mechanismus eingebaut). Das Frühstück war noch ok - nichts Besonderes aber auch nicht schlecht. Die Lage ist für Besucher des gaslamp district gut, da nur wenige Blocks entfernt. Die Gegend selbst ist aber nicht sonderlich einladend. Auf unserer Rundreise durch den Westen der USA als Durchgangsstation gewählt und das schlechteste von den 15 Hotels der Reise. 03 August 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by well located It is a great place to stay to get to all the attractions you need to get to. 30 July 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very Nice I enjoyed my stay a great deal. The hotel was very clean and well arranged with modern décor that made you feel comfortable. The staff was helpful, well mannered and very familiar with the area and events. They were always smiling and willing to help. I booked my room late during a huge convention so it was a little pricy, but the hotel and the staff made me feel like it was money will spent. 30 July 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great value for money This hotel offers great value for money for the budget traveller. It provides free airport transfers, and the stay comes with breakfast and free WiFi. Although the breakfast spread is limited compared to the more pricey hotels, it is sufficient for the budget traveller. I would recommend this to budget travellers, and definitely consider staying there again if I am in the region again. 29 July 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay in convenient area I was very happy with my overall stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Downtown San Diego. The only issue I had, which really isn't an issue, is that the sausage gravy for the biscuits and gravy was not filled until I was finished with my breakfast. This is only an issue because that gravy happens to be my favorite. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anybody staying in the area. 28 July 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Vacation Hotel The staff is friendly and very attentive. They were exceptional. its close to many of the major attractions. Will definitely stay here next time I am in San Diego. 24 July 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Very convenient location Overall the people at the front desk busy but did their best. Did not like that you had to have valet parking sometimes had to wait awhile for the car only 1 man working valet. 24 July 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Professional Front Desk Very informative and helpful to provide us with necessary local and traffice information. The only concern is the additional US$16/day parking fee. 24 July 2014

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nice, clean a little outdated, and parking was somewhat inconvenient, but over all a nice place 17 July 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Downtown Holiday Inn When I was single, staying at a downtown hotel this would of been good. Location, price, was as expected. Now that I'm older with a family, I have different expectations. This is still a good hotel, staff was great, location great. Downside major disappointment was breakfast, not to sure if its hotels fault but it was busy. Had other tourist in line crowding and shoving my 6 yr old son in line. Hotel staff place a tray of eggs, and it was like a stampede. Room was comfortable, internet was very good and free. Parking at 16 dollars a day is to be expected in a downtown area, so not complaining about that. Conclusion, if I was in area for nightlife great hotel, but for a family, I would prefer a different hotel. 15 July 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable For the price the hotel was comfortable. The hotel is within walking distance of the Gas Lamp Quarter. 14 July 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Holiday Inn San Diego Downtown The staff was outstanding, especially manager Budd and assistant Ms. Rene. The breakfast offering was also excellent. Improvements needed: older hotel, terribly small bathroom. Too pricey for this Holiday Inn, but I understand renovations are expected. 10 July 2014

EXCELENT STAFF 09 July 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Holiday Inn Express San Diego Downtown Generally nice hotel. The pool is very small and there was no hot tub. The room was clean, but was outdated. Bathroom was clean, but very small. 09 July 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Less Quality than expected This has been the lowest quality of all Holiday Inn where we have stayed. The hotel looks old and dirty. In our view, the room carpet requires change. We found it expensive to the quality we perceived. On the other hand, the service staff was warm, caring and gentile. Thank you! 07 July 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 2nd stay Very convenient for me. Leisure visit-family. Love the towel and pillow quality. And the complimentary happy hour-unique and so hospitable! 05 July 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Freindly and great breakfast Over all good expereince. The staff was great and the rooms very confortable. Was able to walk around the area and see the water front. Two things need to work on was update the decore little (kind of old look) and no free parking. Had to pay for parking. 30 June 2014

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Hot Room AC was off when I got in my room. Took 12 hours to get to comfortable temp. Fan kept cutting off at night when the compressor did. This woke me up several times. Other than AC issues, everything was good. 24 June 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 3 day stay A really nice hotel, and probably the best HI Express I have stayed at. Breakfast is the usual, but the rest of the hotel and the staff were great. Close enough to walk to the main bars and restaurants as well as the waterfront. The free shuttle on offer to the airport is a bonus. 20 June 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Location, location, location You can walk to the harbor, seaside village, gas lamp district and little Italy. The shuttle will take you to areas outside walking distance. The staff helped me with charging my phone, splitting my bill, locating a store in close proximity to the hotel just to name a few. They were all very friendly. 18 June 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Conveniente ubicación y accesabilidad Me gustan estos hoteles porque es grato tener un lugar seguro para estar cuando viajas. 18 June 2014
