Reviewed yesterday NEW

Although this hotel was fairly typical for a Holiday Inn Express (which I like), I particularly wanted to thank Gladis, working the continental breakfast shift, for going out of her way to find me the plain oatmeal that had run out. She went the extra mile by searching for it. Thank you, Gladis.

The hotel was conveniently located and the staff was wonderful. We stayed 4 days on our way to Hawaii and overnight on our return. We were concerned no one would be available to pick us up at airport as our return flight was over an hour late and we had a problem with luggage. Zaid stayed after his shift to...

We were there to attend a Marine graduation. My main objective when booking was to be close to MCRD. The hotel is right by the highway, but when in your room you can't hear anything. The rooms are clean and the breakfast that is offered was perfect for making it quick. The part that makes the stay exceptional was the...

We came to town to see my nephew graduate from MCRD. The entire staff treated us so well! Everyone from Art at the front desk to our driver (Fernando?) to Dolores in the kitchen. We felt so welcomed and any time we needed anything they were on it! So kind and so cool. Not to mention they are pros at...

We just left the holiday inn yesterday after spending a week long family vacation there. The hotel was wonderful, my kids loved the pool and my son loved watching the cars go by on the patio by the freeway. It has a nice gift shop everything you need in there. Also guest laundry is available. The free breakfast in the...

Very good! Was very pleased with Zaid and Fernando! We loved Mission Beach the most. It was a great place to go for my sisters birthday. The hotel was very nice and accommodating. Definitely would come back or suggest it to people.

We took the Amtrak to San Diego and the hotel sent a shuttle to pick us up. The hotel is located near Old Town which you can walk to or take their shuttle. Their shuttles go to a variety of places and are available whenever you need them and the drivers, especially Zaid, are friendly and knowledgeable. They have coupons...

I would have given this hotel an "Excellent" rating except that my room overlooked the I-5 Interstate. Despite having two sets of double-glazing the traffic noise was still bothsome, mainly because at night it was intermittant rather than a constant background. Everything else about the hotel was fine. A large, clean and well decorated room with a comfy bed, fast...

Normally, we do not rate motels, as the names may change, but the experiences are so similar. However, this Holiday Inn Express is an exception because they made things so effortless, at a super rate and are in a convenient location. We booked here as an overnighter between a flight into SD and a cruise the next day. Their airport...

I spent 3 nights at this hotel and I can't think of a better location in San Diego. Not only is it close to the airport and Car Rental Center but it has easy access to I-5 and Downtown or Pacific Beach and La Jolla. Old Town is right down the block with shopping and great Mexican Restaurants. This hotel...
