Sally at the reception desk was outstanding in responding to us. We had selected this Holiday Inn because of price and shuttle service from the airport. Landed at the airport and were told by the hotel that shuttle service was not available on the weekends. We hired a taxi for $50. We were furious by the time we arrived at... More

Standard Holiday Inn but better customer service and breakfast was cooked by a chef not a buffet. vouchers included for two drinks, breakfast and dinner ...great value! TV had issues with HD channels. I'm not sure if it was temporary but it happened both of the two nights that I was there.

I stayed 4 days during the July long weekend with my family. The staffs are friendly and very helpful on providing info about dining suggestion and driving route. The room is just "OK" for a 3 stars hotel. Furniture are quite "outdated", more looks like a best western or a motel style. I couldn't sleep well with their "extra-soft" pillow,... More

I added this hotel on for the final night of a long vacation. It is easily accessible from downtown San Diego, just a short drive on the freeway. There's plenty of parking.

In general, it was a pleasing experience to spend a night in this hotel. The hotel and the room are very clean. Everything works. Internet is fast. The bed and pillows are comfortable.
