Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GKat1 Friendly and helpful staff
Although we did not use the pool or fitness center, we enjoyed our stay. The pool was quite small and not very inviting, so we did not enter. Our stay was good, though, and we will probably return if we visit that area again.

This is only my second time staying in San Diego and I wanted to try a different location. I booked this hotel for its convenient location to I-8, and it surely is right next to that interstate. I was not familiar with the neighborhood and found this one is a mix of residential, industrial and retail and one should not chose it for view. Although it is an older property, it does have what I expect from a Holiday Inn express, the room was comfortable and clean, the amenities were good, especially the breakfast. I did not use the pool and if you really like pools this was more like a large spa. I did use the fitness room and it was very good experience. The staff was friendly and helpful. The parking was free, convenient and secure. The property was busy and many families were indeed on their way to Sea World.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by adamagi only advantage is location and free parking
this hotel is near seaword and it is an advantage and disadvantage at the same time since the surrounding is very poor and noisy.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The parking was free, which does NOT seem to be the norm in this area. We did have trouble on Saturday night finding a spot...we were trying to squeeze into a small space, when the security guy came around and directed us to the lot across the street at the UFC gym. Apparently you can park there, too! Score! Thanks awesome security dude for helping us out! I was not looking forward to wedging myself into that tiny spot.
I loved that they had constant freebies in the lobby. Morning breakfast, afternoon cookies, and evening pancakes? Yes please! Plus their juice machine was always open, so I could refill my water... and they had lollipops at the front. I just thought these little touches gave the place the upper hand when it comes to hotels. We forgot our toothpaste, and front desk was more than happy to offer us some complimentary travel sizes. Awesome!
All in all, the hotel was clean, and fairly priced for the area we stayed. (a mile from SeaWorld) Staff was always nice to us, and the beds were comfy.

I was in town for a deep sea fishing trip that left very early in the morning. I was very pleased about how easy it was to book the room for my family and rooms for my guests. The staff was extremely courteous at check in and made it a point to let us know about their pancakes at midnight promotion. I have stayed at several Holiday Inn Express Hotels throughout California, and i was impressed with the cleanliness of this hotel. My guests were also very impressed.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NAPLES TRAV Over priced, Terrible Front Desk Svc
Would not recommend this property to my worst enemy. Rude Front Desk, Over priced property, OLD, Falling Apart, More of a LOWER CLASS property than Holiday Inn. Very surprise this property still carries this Flag. Will NEVER STAY HERE AGAIN EVEN IF ITS FREE, THAT'S HOW BAD IT WAS.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GeoAZ Excellent service!
Excellent service and the front check in/out staff were very courteous, friendly and helpful. The only problems was with parking, if you have a full size car, SUV/truck very limited parking.
