Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Buena y con oportunidades En términos generales tienen muy buenos empleados que atienden muy bien a los huéspedes, la limpieza en general es buena, lo que les hace falta es la transportación de Hotel-Aeropuerto y Aeropuerto-Hotel sea las 24HRS, a las 10 de la noche ya me toco pagar Taxi, los retretes de los baños son de baños públicos, no les haría mal cambiarlos.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Alumni Event in SoCal Overall it was a great stay! The staff was very polite and helpful and for my first out of town business trip it was very simple to get situated. The only issue I had was during check it, because I used a company card to book the room so there was a few issues with I.D. Also, I it was hard to get the room temperature comfortable. It was either too hot or too cold. September 29, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very clean and excellent staff The staff were exceptionally friendly and welcoming. The hotel common areas and room were very clean. The decor of the room itself was a bit dated, but at the time of our stay the rooms were being renovated. The location was very convenient in downtown three blocks from the trolley. Overall we had an excellent stay. September 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Always Outstanding!! The GM, Budd and his staff always know how to make my stay that much more enjoyable. Talk about service and a smile. These people go above and beyond to make sure each guest is welcome and enjoying their stay. Every time they call you by name, they make sure your happy with the room choice, had enough to eat at breakfast and more. I have stayed at this hotel many times and I will continue to simply because the staff makes the hotel that much greater!! As always my gratitude to them all for always making me feel so welcome!! September 28, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great view of the city able to "walk the city" from the hotel :) and that is just what we were looking for. Bathroom was small not much counter space. September 26, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Overall I enjoy staying at this location. I am in the area often for business. When the price is right this is always the place that I like to stay. September 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent room and service the rooms are excellent, good appereance, excellent brekfast and the front desk service was excellent September 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Rewarding Visit As a group of 4 adults we booked two rooms for an overnight stay, and were very soon to regret that we had not more time to spend here. From check-in to check out we were made to feel like valued guests Attentive efficient and friendly staff do make such a difference. Location very good, most things walkable, and shuttle available to certain locations was a bonus, as was the complimentary evening drinks My wife was dumbstruck when asking for a Merlot, only to be told that there was a choice of three! Rooms were more than adequate for our needs. Scrupulously clean, as was the rest of the Hotel.Would not hesitate to recommend.Among the excellent staff,Ana was truly outstanding, both in her charming manner, and her knowledge of the area. September 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service and room Easy walking distance to everything downtown San Diego. Shuttle service to Balboa Park and many area attractions was great. Breakfast selection was excellent. Free happy hour and evening cookies were a bonus. September 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent Hotel is great but the staff and managers make it outstanding. I felt like I was on vacation not business. September 22, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Buen Servicio y Amenidades Excelente Ubicacion El único detalle con este hotel es que los muebles son viejos, las alfombras muy deterioradas, las cortinas extremadamente viejitas y algunas dañadas y no hay buenas conexiones (enchufes) en las habitaciones, no hay conexiones cerca de la cama!! Hoy en dia con tanto cellular y aparatos varios es incómodo tener que poner todo en el escritorio uno quiere tenerlos en el buró de noche... el baño MUY pequeño de nuestra habitación... Fuera de eso el servicio bueno, las amenidades buenas, la comida del desayuno excelente y la limpieza muy Buena tambien! Excelente ubicación... un poco caro para mi gusto al tener un elevador tan deteriorado y ser el mobiliario tan Viejo, pero amenidades como un mini-refrigerador en la habitación compensan algunos otros detalles. September 18, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Service The pillows were a little flat and the bed a little harder than I like but overall I had a good stay at this hotel. It was quiet, the staff was helpful and responsive and breakfast was plentiful and adequate. I also appreciated having a coffee pot in my room. There is only one restaurant that I saw that was close enough to walk to in early evening. However, it was Italian and very good, September 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great choice in San Diego This hotel was great for my recent trip to San Diego. The hotel was quiet, but was very close to all of the action of San Diego. I would recommend for anyone going to San Diego. The staff was always very nice also! September 17, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointment The garage was a nightmare with narrow ramps making maneuvering difficult even with a compact car - columns and walls were marked by cars hitting them. Confusing indications on how to get to the lobby from the garage, as also noted by other guests. Our room was not made up until 2:30 pm, after a request to the cleaning person and later to the lobby ( perhaps some mis-communication occurred here ). Bathroom door defective and difficult to open from inside the bathroom. The wallpaper was starting to come off the walls. We have used other Holiday Inn Express hotels, also in San Diego, and were always pleased. This one was a quite bad experience. September 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Big breakfast room and many breakfast choices Very welcoming staff. Bedroom was big but bathroom was small. Mini-refrigerator and wi-fi were good. Bed comfortable. We appreciated the shuttle service to and from the zoo. Cons: parking garage has tight corners, Overall a great stay. September 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Holiday Inn Express San Diego Downtown Not super modern, but very clean and accommodating. September 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by another great stay My recent visit was a comfortable stay away from home on business. Its nice to have the service and great relationship with the hotel when ever I work away from home. They are always willing to go out of their way for the quests. Always with a smile. I will continue to make this my san diego hotel of choice September 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good Great Stay. It was a clean room and had a good breakfast. September 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good food Good breakfast, cookies. Dinner vouchers were convenient September 15, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Downtown Air Cond did not quite keep up due to the extreme heat wave that we were having, although nice hotel and I would stay there again. Love being able to walk down to the water, to eat and see the sites. Elevators are a little slow and no A/C in them. Parking structure is tight, although very do able.. September 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Stay As Usual Great location close to the GasLamp District and easy walk most anywhere downtown. Great Stay with IHG Hotels as usual. Managers reception each evening was a nice treat. September 8, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Customer Service Although I thought that the parking was a bit of a pain, and the rooms were all standard size with no way of accommodating a family of 5 was inconvenient. I was blown away by the Excellent customer service and attention to detail. The free breakfast was a GREAT touch. I would for sure recommend this property. I would love to stay here again hopefully by the time we come back there will be some type of resolve to accommodate a family of 5. September 7, 2014
