Even until yesterday, a week after we check-in this HolidayInn Express, with my wife, we were very happy we ran into problem with original booking Hotel: Travelodge and having this particular HolidayInn replaced as last min solution. So, it made our trip in San Diego started with smile at 2nd day morning. Breakfast are wonderful, they have the best staff,... More

I visited this hotel during the 4th of July long weekend with my family. The hotel held up to its Holiday Inn standards in cleanliness and comfort of beds. The staff was friendly, the room was of a decent size. The reason I booked this hotel was its price and relative proximity to Imperial Beach. I was ok with the... More

stayed there for 4 nights during my business trip to Tijuana/Mex. Hotel is located directly at the border. a good and solid choice for business travelers, breakfast is ok, some fast food restaurants are in close proximity, however better restaurants or shopping malls are just a short taxi ride away.

Stayed here over New Year's break for a week. The staff is very friendly and try to accommodate but there is a disconnect throughout. The breakfast buffet never seemed to be at 100%. Always out of several things; usually the main items like eggs or pancakes. The rooms were not cleaned to satisfaction; bathroom items not replenished and strong chemical... More

We read the reviews and were concerned. However we have stayed at HIEX in past and it was fine. This property is the closest to family we were visiting. Staying at a higher priced property would have meant dealing with too much traffic. The staff is friendly enough! Our room appears to not have been vacuumed in at least a... More

A good hotel near the Tijuana border crossing. Very inconvenient to acceptable dining options (at least 20 minutes away from everything), but definitely your best choice within 5 minutes of the border. Tucked back in an industrial park (be sure to bring your GPS). Comfortable rooms, quiet and clean

Good hotel, nice service but extremely far away from everything. One street away from the Mexican border. I wouldn't advise anyone to stay here if they plan on site seeing, You waste more time driving to the places then actually enjoying your trip. But on the other hand, extremely nice service. Great breakfast.

Had a week long baseball tournament for my son in the SD area and was given a great rate from Diane due to bringing other families along and being an IHG member. Staff was very friendly.

Hotel a bitt dirty at least the guest room seem that way. Location may be ideal for business not south to do around the area. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Outdoor pool was a nice touch provide fun for the kids. Location is close to the boarder if you plan to go. Also very close to imperial beach

We booked 4 nights. I had read on the reviews that the place was far out but I didn't realize how far. We experienced a few issues during our stay: dirty back entry (nasty carpet , dirty walls by the elevator) and with the room. The ottoman footstool had a bloodstain on it. When I called down to the front... More
