Very good! Was very pleased with Zaid and Fernando! We loved Mission Beach the most. It was a great place to go for my sisters birthday. The hotel was very nice and accommodating. Definitely would come back or suggest it to people.

We took the Amtrak to San Diego and the hotel sent a shuttle to pick us up. The hotel is located near Old Town which you can walk to or take their shuttle. Their shuttles go to a variety of places and are available whenever you need them and the drivers, especially Zaid, are friendly and knowledgeable. They have coupons...

I would have given this hotel an "Excellent" rating except that my room overlooked the I-5 Interstate. Despite having two sets of double-glazing the traffic noise was still bothsome, mainly because at night it was intermittant rather than a constant background. Everything else about the hotel was fine. A large, clean and well decorated room with a comfy bed, fast...

Normally, we do not rate motels, as the names may change, but the experiences are so similar. However, this Holiday Inn Express is an exception because they made things so effortless, at a super rate and are in a convenient location. We booked here as an overnighter between a flight into SD and a cruise the next day. Their airport...

I spent 3 nights at this hotel and I can't think of a better location in San Diego. Not only is it close to the airport and Car Rental Center but it has easy access to I-5 and Downtown or Pacific Beach and La Jolla. Old Town is right down the block with shopping and great Mexican Restaurants. This hotel...

We came for Marine graduation 3 day visit. The Marine Depot is next to the airport and this hotel has good shuttle service to both, and to Old Town about a mile away. So we did not need to rent a car. Shuttle service was a pus but not much else. The rooms with two queens are all on the...

Stayed 4 nights in king room facing a side street that dead-ended at the freeway. Double windows mitigated noise from airplanes, freeway, and train to an acceptable level for us, but I'm not sure we would have been OK if we had been in one of the rooms facing the freeway. Rooms facing the opposite side of the property might...

This place has been my SD standby as a Gold member. I like the free shuttle to the convention center and the free parking plus a room away from the highway near the pool. Well, now they charge $10 for parking which was one my pluses as hotel parking downtown is $25ish and now doesn't look so bad. Plus there...
