    Fair 4.0
    Won't stay at a Holiday Inn again...
    The beds are comfortable and the breakfast was good, however, that's not enough to get us to return. There is a steep charge for parking--it was $23 for the night--that was unexpected. Even worse, was the parking garage. With pillars too close to one another we had to basically crawl around the corners and down the aisles--it was abominable (we drive a cross-over).In addition, the directions for where to park (which floors) were unclear, and a room key was needed to even get out of the parking structure. After checkout I usually leave the keys behind in the room. If I had done so, we would not have been able to leave the parking structure. It was a nightmare. (And, reminded us of another Holiday Inn from a previous trip where parking was insane.)

    Very Good 8.0
    Exceeded expectations
    Location is central but far enough away to avoid the worst of city centre noise. If walking, the hotel is up a steep hill so the location may not be ideal for the less able. I am a stickler when it comes to hotel cleanliness but HI express gets 5* from me in this regard. Normally I rent a car but didn't on this trip. The airport is central and HIE operate shuttle service which took us there and back and around main tourist spots downtown. Awesome!

    Great location. Close to freeways, Gaslamp and Balboa Park. Property and amenities are just average.
