I have stayed at this property many times in the past 6 months for Business and each time I am greeted by a very friendly staff at the front desk who goes out of their way each time to make sure I am taken care of. Ulises the Front Office Manager is always going above and beyond to make sure... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights en route to another California destination. Upon entry to the room, there was an odor. Not your typical clean hotel smell, but maybe a smoking cover-up or like someone had cooked a meal that had seeped into the walls. I couldn't put my finger on it, but it was unpleasant. Other...

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for you review. I am so sorry to hear about your stay.

Our king bed room was clean and up to date with a very comfortable bed and great shower. We actually overslept the first night because the curtains kept the room so dark (and it was quiet). We will be back the next time we are in the area.

Easy access to hotel, good, free parking ( there are a few covered spots), friendly and professional staff all add up to a good hotel experience. Quiet room. Plenty of places to eat within short walking distance. Restaurant there (I didn't try it). Starbucks 10 minute walk. Free wifi and good connection speed.

I don't think I understand what yardstick folks are using for this hotel. It's a Holiday Inn. Expect functional, relatively clean, but it won't be the Waldorf Astoria. The room was clean, although there was a spot by the fridge that was a bit moist. I am going to give the benefit of a doubt and assume someone spilled some... More

this holiday inn is clean and functional for overnight trips. would not recommend more than a 2 night stay. Nothing to WOW you just a bed and tv. The smallest bathrooms of any hotel chain. Good location. Shopping and eating places nearby. Don't plan on using the pool. More like a swimming tub. overall ok for the expedia price discount

Pro's - large suites for families (it's one large room, not a separate bedroom for kids) and conveniently located across street from Mcd's and costco. Con's -do not eat breakfast here even if they offer you breakfast coupon. The worst we have eaten at a hotel. Everything we ordered tasted undercooked or dry. Service was slow. Our floor was noisy...

Let me start by saying that we stayed at another Holiday Inn in Anaheim the night prior to arriving at this hotel. The first set a very high standard, which this one simply did not meet. The front lobby was clean and welcoming. The staff was friendly. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. That's where the positives... More

I travel for work about 60% of my year and have found that a clean, well priced, professionally staffed hotel is often hard to come by. I was pleasantly surprised that the Holiday Inn San Diego was not hard to come by and exemplified all of these qualities. The front desk staff, Samantha and Richard, were both extremely inviting and... More

We stayed at this hotel during our relocation to San Diego Trip. We picked this one as it was close to our place. But from beginning to end, our experience at this hotel was not as expected.
