Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pat511 Comfortable, quiet room and great service
We only spent one night at this HI Express and wish we could have extended our stay. From the check in experience to the van to the airport, it was all outstanding. An excellent value close to the airport.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ash06 Clean rooms and great shuttle service
I have stayed at many Holiday Inns before. The hotel was well kept and had a good breakfast options. The shuttle around San Diego was awesome and eliminated the worry of getting around. It is located on a freeway but you did not hear the traffic in the room. However, one staff member was not very pleasant when asking questions and finding out information. It did not make us feel very welcome. Other then that the stay was great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 50inmaui Wonderful staff, great service
After Fernando dropped us off at the airport, we were going through security check in and realized I had left my iPad in our hotel room. I panicked and called the font desk and spoke with Carlos (?) and explained what had happened. He and Fernando retrieved my iPad and delivered my iPad to me at the airport!!! I was so happy to have been treated with such professionalism and care from Fernando and Carlos...they are awesome! The management needs to know the quality of staff they have in these two employees. It was 6:00 am, they could have easily dismissed me and told me they were unable to assist me but they went the extra mile and I am so grateful. These days customer service is sometimes a lost art but not at the Holiday Inn Express Old Town San Diego with Fernando the driver and Carlos at the front desk. I should add that Alex the driver was great too, he was very knowledgeable and always there to pick us up promptly. They all deserve a raise!!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by otrbuff Pluses and minuses
Pluses: near Old Town, friendly staff, fairly quiet (request room away from the Interstate, an imperative), 2 free daily papers
Minuses: tight parking, tiny room and bath, no milk cartons at breakfast, no vending machines (so you pay more for purchases to hotel's front desk), whirlpool not easily accessible from main hotel
Without a car one would be sunk here or have to rely on cabs. It's not within walking distance to anything. While the hotel offers shuttle service, that is within a limited radius. Staff seems knowledgeable about the area and willing to offer directions.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reginator Excellent hotel and staff
We stayed at Holiday Inn Airport Old Town for 2 days in Feb 2014 and were very well treated by the staff . This was our first visit to San Diego and the desk staff provided some helpful suggestions as to things to see and do and had their shuttle driver take us to Old Town and the train station. The rooms were very clean and reasonably priced.
We will stay here on future visits and I recommend this Holiday Inn to anyone as an excellent hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jet leg Great staff and comfortable room
I would have liked a option to go to the bar and get a drink after a long day of traveling, this hotel did not offer that service.
Front desk clerks were top notch and the shuttle to airport was very much a convience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Elephant Eye EXCELLENT STAY
We so enjoyed our stay at the motel in San Diego CA. The staff was very professional, but friendly.
Our rooms were super, and the breakfast was unbelievably good! The shuttle service was over and beyond our expectations.
A super facility - Hope to return soon!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by WanderingTaxman1 Really Wanted to Like, but TRAFFIC NOISE "kills" it
The staff were amazingly considerate and let us try multiple suites to try and minimize traffic noise. They had coupons for discounts at nearby eateries.
The downside that just cannot be overcome is the incessant, loud, and invasive traffic noise at all times of the day and night.
Another annoyance is that the pool area is not adjoined to the hot tub area.
Parking is tight, very tight. We really wanted to like this property, but had to shorten a 3-day RSVP to just one night due to the lack of sleep from the highway noise.
