Guest Reviews

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 109 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 8, 2014
