Not very accommodating to EV owners. No Electric Vehicle charging Station. They would not even let us charge to an 120v outlet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DrH1895 Convenient Location
This property was well located for our business needs. Friendly staff, clean, comfortable, updated rooms, nice breakfast, free parking. All pluses. Restaurants and shopping near by, walking distance just accross the street. If you have business in the área or want to go to the zoo or Sea World, this is a great value for Money. No complaints other than wanting to use the fitness facility at 5:00 a.m. and having to wait until 5:30 for no logical reason.

Excellent room, but full roll-in shower had some issues. Need larger seat, and some shelves at the seat end of the shower, for soap and shampoo.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Intl_Traveller808 Outstanding service!! Convenient location. Two thumbs up.
This hotel completed our family great experience to Seaworld. We reserved two standard rooms and received complimentary upgrade to bigger rooms with a connecting door. Free of charge! The lady at the front desk was super nice. Thank you!!! The hotel location is also great, close to many restaurants n only less than 10 minutes away from Seaworld. The only downside was the breakfast, but we didnt care since we had a big dinner in a restaurant nearby and rested well in a very comfortable bed n nice room.

4 of us stayed here after a cruise and found the rooms wonderful.
very clean and definitely up to date. Beds were very comfortable
The breakfast had lots of choice and reasonable hours I would definitely stay here again! We took cabs everywhere but would suggest the hotel have info on the bus routes as it was a little ways from downtown.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Patter123 Canadian Family Vacation
Family of 5 from Canada touring California attratctions. This hotel had great staff, spacious rooms and very clean. Couple points to know is the pool is small and a little out of the way, but very clean and always clean dry pool towels. The location of the hotel is ok, not the best neighbourhood, but always felt safe, and too be honest you have to expect that when you go to a major US city, there are going to be homeless people and not so pleasant sights. Overall I am very happy with our stay and would recommened it to anyone. One other thing, the breakfasts were good, the warm food selection changed each morning and the staff were great.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kell29 Terrible service
The front desk staff are not trained properly in thier daily tasks. One person working the front desk numerous times and the check in line was insane. Arrived at hotel, had 3 rooms booked, and when we walked into to one of the rooms it had not been cleaned. The towels are old and stained. The beds very uncomfortable. Have never stayed at a holiday inn until now that I din't like, nor will ever go back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DaveinDC Friendly service and great location
A quiet, updated property with a very friendly staff and nice pool area. At check in, the front desk clerk gave us a map, talked about attractions in the area, and answered all our questions.
SeaWorld is just across the bridge and while we did not visit there, we did spend a day at Mission Beach, which is just a short drive away. Mission Beach has souvenir shops, beachside bar food joints, and a surfing wavehouse, all surrounded by a bike/runner-friendly boulevard. Shortly after our stay, we realized that we forgot an item in the room and after a call to the hotel, the housekeeping staff quickly found it and we were able to retrieve it from the front desk. Overall, a great property for a nice visit to San Diego.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by sandiego2013 You can do better
We luckily only stayed here one night for a family vacation to San Diego. Not only is this in a quite undesirable part of town....it is right next to the highway.
I did read some reviews before choosing this hotel and most guests said this was not an issue....IT IS.
I felt "icky" the moment we walked into the room and it did not feel safe at all. Had to leave the tv on all night to drown out the noise of the highway and aircraft. A few folks using the pool were right outside our window adding to the unpleasant experience.
Breakfast was ok...not too many healthy choices. Cheap carbs and sweets.
I would not recommend this to anyone...especially families and would not stay here again.

Very happy with our stay at this Holiday Inn. We spent 3 days and was made welcome every time we came in and went out. The room was very nice, clean and very comfortable.
The free breakfast was good, with a good variety of items.
Staff all friendly and willing to help. Manager even helped us make a reservation at another Holiday Inn when we were leaving. Also gave us directions to where we needed to go each day.

I'm very picky! Beyond picky when it comes to staying in hotels. My 7 yr old had heart surgery and I need a place that is clean. On top of that I'm a person who likes value. This gives both! I would stay here again in an instant!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Travelingbird Okay, not great, left a lot to be desired
The location is probably the best aspect of this hotel. It was a quick drive to Sea World and the zoo. The staff were friendly. The room was pretty clean, but it was noisy from freeway traffic. Also the neighborhood is run down and the view from our window was of a neighbor's junk heap, not appealing. The window was not fully attached to the frame, we weren't on the ground floor, but it was really bizarre and needs attention. Breakfast left a lot to be desired. There weren't a lot of choices especially if you have any kind of allergy like being gluten free like me. Lastly their parking lot is not user friendly at all. The parking spaces are small and not laid out well. Many people were double parked because of this situation. We got in late one night and it was impossible to park and had to park on the street. Apart from the central location and there being some shopping and restaurants nearby, I would not stay there again.
