"Nice Hotel for the money"
Had a good stay at the hotel. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. Had a pull out sofa bed that was made up and ready to go. Perfect for my daughters to sleep in. Room was good-sized and comfortable for two adults and three kids. Complimentary breakfast offered a good variety and was promptly replenished. It was within 15-20 mins driving of many attractions. Neighborhood appeared sketchy but was safe enough. Pool was small but good enough for cooling off.

"A little noisy"
The staff was very friendly, the room was clean, the breakfast was good. The only problem was the lack of sleep I got due to the location. The dumpsters for the local businesses are picked up and emptied every day prior to 7am and once prior to 6am and they are not quiet about it.

"Would try it again"
We stayed for one night and didn't get to take advantage of the pool and other areas of the hotel. The room and breakfast area was clean and the staff was great. Breakfast was good with the normal selections. There was a pancake machine, which I haven't seen before, but it made the area a mess-free zone (no batter to clean up like the waffle machines). Parking was in an area under the hotel with very small parking spots. I'm glad the lot wasn't full or it may have posed a problem even though our car was not large. The neighboorhood was not the best but for the money it was good.

We stayed there on a family mini vacation, we were vising Mission beach. The location was fantastic, the staff very friendly,beds were comfortable. I really enjoyed our stay. I would defiantly stay there again next time we go to San Diego. The only downfall is the parking, the parking spaces are small if you have a large vehicle.

nice, budget conscious hotel which caters mostly to families. The breakfasts which were included in room rate, were good with a nice variety. Room was very clean & staff was friendly. The only frawback is the neighborhood - somewhat seedy. But overall, this hotel was worth the price.

"Very short drive to SeaWorld."
The hotel itself was fine. The area it was located in had a little more homeless folks milling around than other places. Small children's swimming pool. Gets crowded quickly. Breakfast buffet had weird-tasting milk which the kids passed on after 1 sip. Even the creamers for the coffee tasted strange (tried the skim, half-and-half flasks, and even the little hazlenut creamers all tasted strange). The bathroom seriously needs a ventilator fan as the humidity and smells in the bathroom did not easily escape. Like the reviewers mentioned on TripAdvisor, pick the top floor rooms. A/C was loud but strong and effective. We had a false fire alarm go off at 1:30am that woke everyone up and lasted for about 5 minutes. The beds, sofabed, were comfortable. Internet was free and fast (19 to 26MB). Both AT&T and TMo cell service were available. Parking spaces were tight. We had a room with 2 Queen beds and a Sofabed for the 5 of us.

"Weekend getaway"
I booked here thinking we were going to be able to see the bay from our room. You can see some of the water but it is blocked by power lines and some other buildings. Also, they have limited covered parking spaces that are built for tiny cars. There is extra parking across the street but it is not lighted and I didn't feel comfortable leaving my vehicle there because of the neighborhood. There were sketchy people all around. Finally this hotel is very overpriced for what you get.

"Far exceeded expectations, would visit again"
Far exceeded our expectations. Room was very nice, breakfast was better than expected. The location was very convenient. Staff was polite and helpful. Parking is a little tricky, and some of the other reviews mention that the neighborhood is a little iffy. I think that's more because it's right in the middle of a bunch of stuff instead of secluded - we felt safe staying there. Would recommend.

"WOW, nice hotel and location."
My wife and I enjoyed out stay at the Holiday Inn Express very much. The staff was genuine and nice. None of that “Good morning sir... How may I assist you today?”, just “Morning... If you need any help starting your morning just ask!” Both my wife and I are in the hotel business and cookie cutter lines are a dead give-away to “stuffy over managed hotels”. The rooms were very clean and everything in the room worked. We stayed two nights and the room was cleaned and restocked with new soap and shampoo of course towels and bedding were also replaced. As far as location goes I could not have done better. this hotel is on the bus line and near three malls, Sea World is 10 minutes away by bus. If we go back to San Diego this hotel is sure to be where we will stay.

"Nice basic hotel!"
We were visiting Seaworld and just needed to stay for the night. Well, to start with the positives, My kids loved the breakfast with the cool pancake making machine..you press a button and voila! You get two small pancakes in under a minute! They loved the sausages, eggs, biscuits with gravy, muffins, cinnamon rolls, yogurt and cereal. The room was neat, looked updated and was large enough for the four of us(we took the room with two queens). Bathroom was roomy too. The hotel is close to McDonald's, Dennys and a CVS, an asset for families with young kids and ever hungry teenagers. The negatives..hotel was hard to access. It was close to the street and could hear traffic all night. The garage had limited free parking and the carpets needed to be updated. Airconditioning was loud. Wifi is free. Overall a basic hotel, kids loved it and we left early the next morning.

Family enjoyed our stay. The morning breakfast and the special night pancakes was awesome. Cleaning ladies were excellent. Only complaint was the firework noise from the ballpark. The sub shop across the street was excellent and Wahoo fish tacos was great and good prices. The discounts on the vacation rack near elevator was cheapest price for San Diego Zoo.

"Vacations at San Diego"
On our first night we had ants comming out of the water sprinkler in the room. The security guy sprayed them with a bio degradable substance and it was Ok for the night. The next day apparently the problem persisted so the staff decided to change our room, without telling us, we came late that night only to find someone else in our room! I know the intention was good but didn´t like them moving my stuff without my permission, in fact they left my son's clothes in a drawer, we had to call the front desk to go back into our previous room and ask for the clothes to the new guests. The parking spaces are designed for go-carts, not for real cars, almost impossible to park, and if you do park you will probably won't be able to get out of the car. The hotel staff was great!

We stayed for 4 days. It was close to the various attractions we visited. The rooms were clean & comfortable. The beds were a little soft for my taste. Breakfast was very good every morning. The area needs to be bigger for the number of people who were there to eat. Overall, I would stay there again.

"Great place, but dont bring in food.."
After a long tiring walk in Sea World it felt great to drive to a nearby hotel (not even 5mins drive). Reception was warm, rooms were cozy and clean. However, after bringing some food into our room ants started invading the table where the food was, and I mean lots of ants. Great place but dont bring in food, thats my advice..

We stayed only one night and it was nice & comfortable. The only problem we had was with the room keys which didn't work, but it seemed to be a problem with many of the rooms and they took care of it quickly. The pool is very small but the kids didn't mind, they had a good time. We spent most of our time at the beach anyway

"Not Happy with Parking and Housekeeping"
The neighborhood was in the slums, the parking was terrible, on the second night, after coming back late from Sea World, had to park across the street in the "over flow" lot in a gym area parking lot. Did not feel safe leaving van there but had no other choice. Then I left my shoes there, I called 3 days in a row, was told they did not find them but after talking to my granddaughter, she said she saw the bag under the bed, she is only 5 so did not think to get it out. I called them back and lo and behold housekeeping looked the next day and found them, well it cost me $15.00 to have them sent back to me, I know it was my fault but after all the confusion and the poor housekeeping I do not think that is fair ! But the front desk staff was very helpful !

"Great Surprise"
We were pleasantly surprised with this hotel. We stayed at another hotel near by last year and was not impressed. We were in San Diego just for the Zoo and needed a nearby hotel. My husband went to check in and we had two rooms. One was ready and the other was not. The second became ready very quickly so there really wasn't any issues. We opened the room door and noticed first that our window was the only window blocked by the logo sign outside. It didn't matter because we weren't there for the view. If I was on a fancy vacation and the hotel was my main part of the vacation then it would have been an issue. We then quickly noticed how clean the room was. I always turn down the bed to check and the sheets looked brand new. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was perfectly cleaned as well. We bring lysol wipes to hotels to clean remotes and such and everything we cleaned was really clean to begin with. The morning breakfast was great. There was a large selection of food. It was typical hotel free breakfast quality food but a little above. We really were happy. I would stay here again and recommend this hotel.

"convenient location"
My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights with our 18 month old son, on his first vacation. The location appears a bit sketchy but it worked out well. Close to beaches, downtown, and airport so it was convenient. Right next to the freeway. Also on a street with many restaurants/stores nearby. It was a bit loud when we arrived but it didn't bother us at night- from both the AC running and probably traffic dying down. The room was clean except for an empty Gatorade bottle found by the curtains. Also the curtains did not close all the way so we were woken up by the bright light shining in. The free breakfast was great, large variety. Bonus points for free cookies at check-in and also for free garage parking! Only disappointment was lack of cartoon channels for my son. We would probably consider staying here again.
