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.
