This a good hotel that is close to the beaches, Sea World, Mission Bay Marinia, and not to far from downtown and the Gaslamp Quarter. The room itself (and the entire hotel property) was very clean and well kept. Jaylene at the front desk was truly outstanding helping us with all our needs and questions, directions, etc. She is the...

We booked this room through Hotwire for approximately $70. Check in took longer than usual, despite no line. The employee was very friendly. The lobby looked brand new and the room was spotless. The morning breakfast was great, although I wish it went past 9:30 considering this hotel obviously caters to tourists. Here's how this could have been a five...

So this hotel is your typical Holiday Inn Express and the place is clean with friendly staff; however there is a dog kennel practically underneath the hotel. This means that you can hear dogs barking ALL THE TIME! Do not use this hotel if you plan on sleeping or spending much time in your room.

chose this hotel for the good reviews, vicinity to the beach and airport as it was only an overnight stay before I boarded the plane the next day to go back east. It was better than expected. Rooms were spacious, updated, and clean. I liked the FREE covered parking. Pool was small but refreshing. And the breakfast the next morning...
