Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jsamson Overall good service and room for price.
Good impression upon entering room. Comfortable atmosphere and relaxing. Noise from other rooms eventually subsided - neighbor was arguing with staff over something. Fitness center was adequate for a cardio workout. Breakfast hours were great and self service meant very little wait time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BustyBrawler Way better than expected. Nice hotel
This hotel was much better than expected. Since it is 1/4 mile from the border we didn't know what to expect since the surrounding area isn't that great. The hotel was very nice, clean and the complimentary breakfast was amazing. We were pleasantly surprised. If we ever have business in that area again, we will gladly stay there but if we return to San Diego for leisure, we'd stay downtown which is where we spent our evenings. There is a beautiful outdoor mall, Otay Ranch, just a few miles down the 125 North toll road and another mall about 20 minutes from the hotel so there is stuff to do out there, you just have to look them up. :)

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MaksymB It was my very first bad experience with IHG
This is the worst hotel so far. Only location of this one is good, rest is even hard to comment. Very dirty, sometimes we thought that stuff has never cleaned it properly. Almost all surfaces in room were in dust.
Probably my family was unlucky.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Travel Machine Very helpful staff at reservation
When my flights were delayed and was not sure if I could make a connection at Atlanta, I had a very difficult decision to make: to cancel the reservation and risk not having a room when I get to San Diego or keep the reservation and risk being charged for the room even though I could not make to San Diego. The front desk lady was very understanding and worked with me so that I could make the right decision when I could between te flights. Glad I kept the reservation. My room was there when I arrived at 1:30 am.

Nice place, friendly staff, I've used this facility for the past 6 years 10-15 times a year, and no complaints, I get a clean room every time with good speedy check ins, friendly front desk staff.

It´s great to be back at this property to find that everything is going well. Clear rooms and facilities. Excellent service by all the people.
Breakfast room well stocked and clean.
Maybe it´s a little bit far from the action but you´ll get a good nite sleep.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HBFOK A good choice
You do trade the convenience of restaurant choices for a great value but the hotel itself is a real value with all the traditional amenities. The staff is attentive and efficient.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Trustworthy
I have accidentally left my phone and valuable in room while leaving out to work for whole day. When I notice my phone wasn't around with my I am thinking I have supposedly drop or lost it but it is to my relieved I saw the phone was place on the side table when I was back to the room in the evening. The person who in charge of servicing my room has wrote a note of her name that she was the one that took care of thing of my room.
I would like give her a recognition for her trustworthy. If I remember correctly her name was Lapika.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cristina1 Great front desk service and Comfortable bed
When we got there, the girl at the front desk was extremely courteous and very prompt she actually gave me a choice regarding the room I could get. I was very impressed to see that the room was very clean and updated the bathroom was very nice too and clean; this is the reason I always stay there when I go that route. I hope everyone else gets a chance to stay there; you'll actually get a great nights rest. Try it I know you won't regret it. Also, there continental breakfast is very good, just a little earlier then what I'm use to but it's worth it.
Will be back soon :-)

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TamalC Location not great, overall ok hotel
Pros: Friendly staff, clean rooms, decent size - these are typically expected from any Holiday Inn Express. Nothing out of the ordinary here.
Cons: Breakfast was terrible - not enough available, long lines of guests waiting for service, poor management of the breakfast area in general - chairs were all over the place as people pulled them as needed, but no one from the staff cared to place them back at the right places.
Location is great for business travelers going to Mexico, not too bad for people trying to get into the city, but if you are going to rely on availability of food nearby or if you are looking for an upbeat neighborhood, this is not the right place. I was ok with the distance to the city, but was not expecting the sheer desolation of this location. Kinda scary if you have to leave the hotel after dark.
Pool area: Very disappointing.
Overall decent experience but not the best Holiday Inn stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rdm51 Nice hotel, a bit noisy on one side.
Nice hotel. I spent 63 nights there in April-June. Some rooms on the side facing the truck lot can be a bit noisy, but keeping the account unit on fan will drown out the trucks. Rooms were clean and well maintained. Some of the towels are a bit frayed, time to replace them!
Overall a good stay. Friendly staff. Breakfast was normally good, although many mornings I had to leave before it was all ready (0530). Bilingual staff.
Close to the border, good. Close to a truck loading area, noisy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SJDA Stayed one night before crossing the border
This hotel is a common stop for business people going across the border to Mexico. It is a great location, you can walk to it from the Otay Mesa crossing. The hotel is a bit difficult to find, even with GPS. The hotel is always clean and quiet and of good value.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Toby1313 Nice enough place, had a couple issues
Worst part of the trip was the unreliable WiFi. Too much trouble connecting and staying connected. Never had this much trouble at any other hotel. Overall, nice place but WiFi needs to be improved and as a backup, make the wired in-room connections available.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HJ28 Great Value, Short Ride to San Diego
We paid about half of what it would cost to stay in San Diego, and got a clean room in a quiet, safe area. It was an easy 30 minute drive to Sea World, the Beaches, etc. The hotel is in an industrial area, on a cul-de-sac, within a stone's throw of Mexico.
There's not much to do in the area of the hotel, but about 15 minutes away is Chula Vista, CA - a lovely town with great restuarants, shopping, and activities.
The staff was great, and helped us with toiletries, pillows, towels, etc. They even helped us navigate our way around the toll road ($3.50 EACH WAY !!).
Breakfast (free) is what you would expect. Didn't have a chance to use the pool, but it looked nice. Fresh fruit and a newspaper were available each morning.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Howard F Home away from home...lately
We have been working a job in the area for weeks now, and are commuting home on the weekends. Although there are two other Holiday Inns closer to the job site, we choose to drive here for the known comfort and the staff. The hotel is great, but it's the staff that makes it awesome!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Patrick716 Improved experience
I stayed here twice before and each time was billed incorrectly. It was a big battle the last time, so I was uncertain if I would return but I decided to give it a shot.
The hotel is very affordable, the breakfast is good, and the location- for crossing the border, is great. Upon checkin we were upgraded, and I have to believe that was a recognition of the previous problems we experienced and I certainly appreciated it.
The beds are some of the most comfortable I can recall so I like this place a lot. The downside while we were there was we had to wake up early to move our car Sunday morning because they were resurfacing their parking lot. I just wish we would have received an email or something warning us, it was an inconvenience after a long night to have to wake up at 7:30 am to move the car.
Otherwise, the stay was great, much improved, and I think I'll be giving the hotel another chance!
