I needed a place to stay while visiting SD and the HI was a steal at $50 a night. I stayed for six nights and didn't get a peep of noise from the hall, emergency door or the roads outside. My bed was comfortable and the staff helped with everything they could. The spa was undergoing repairs the whole time... More

Stayed for 4 nights. Front desk staff was great @ check in. My room was awesome compared to other rooms in the hotel. No breakfast but restaurants abound and Costco across the street. My computer was blocked the next evening and wouldn't let me connect to the net. I just finished booking another hotel for my next stay then ;).... More

Our stay was up to HI standards, but internet is not high-speed at all. The room was nice, clean, but only had 2 wall sockets? Two? I bet every business guest has more than 2 devices and I do not want to charge one of them in the bathroom. Hotel staff was helpful and provided us with express check-out, which... More

This hotel had signs all over the place about how awesome their high speed internet was supposed to be. Yeah, there really wasn't any internet service at all. We tried on two separate weekends, from 2 different rooms, and the internet actually never worked. When we asked the front desk about it, they just said, "It's working." Also, the hotel... More

Upon arrival i asked when continental breakfast was to be served - - my bad - this is a full service holiday inn (didn’t think to look for that when booking) - what that means is no continental breakfast for early travelers, no coffee in the lobby, just a free US News. The restaurant on the property was just ok... More

My mom and I always stay here when we visit family in the area. It is consistently clean quiet and comfortable. We had a little issue trying to get the wifi working last time but it could have been user error.
