This was our first time to stay at a HIE. We've always stayed at other, bigger brand name hotels, but we wanted to see if we'd like HIE. We actually enjoyed staying at this particular HIE! Staying there during the holidays, the rates were very reasonable. Our rooms were upgraded when we checked in, and we stayed in a large double queen bedroom. We were impressed with the size and overall cleanliness of our room. Beds were very comfy, and we had many pillows. Bathrooms were good sized and again, very clean and well-stocked. The toiletries were nice and did not seem cheap (citrus smelling). There were even a couple of free water bottles in our room. Breakfast was good and plentiful. All the staff we had contact with were very helpful and kind and nice, including the Manager and Luz, from the front desk. First time visitors in the area would probably have a little problem finding the hotel since it was tucked a little away from main streets. Once you become familiar with the area, you'll find out that the location is very good - just minutes away from most visited tourist spots in San Diego. Very close to the freeway, but not noisy (to us). We'll definitely be staying here again whenever we visit San Diego, and we very highly recommend this hotel!
