I liked everything about this place BUT the bed. Location was great (almost right off the freeway = convenient). Parking was plentiful and free, although can get a bit crowded on weekend evenings since it shared the lot with Denny's. Upon arrival, we were greeted by warm & friendly staff at the front desk. Breakfast area was small, but it... More

The experience then continued with a total lack of ice in the entire four-story hotel, vending machines that were inoperable, and no change at the desk to purchase water... More

The staff at HIE, Mira Mesa Blvd was phenominal. Chante was always wearing a smile for us and she did everything possible to accomodate our every need.

I stayed here for a few days on a trip down to San Diego. Loved this hotel. The location is great, not too far from downtown as well as if you wanted to go up north to Carlsbad and to Legoland. The rooms are very nice, clean and spacious. They recently upgraded the rooms to granite countertops as well as... More

First and foremost, the hotel is right off the freeway (Highway 15)...it made getting around the city more convenient. The staff, especially at the front desk, were all friendly.
