Everything and everyone was great!

The staff as well as the facilities were always very nice, very helpful, not only were th rooms clean but very comfortable and cozy. The food was very good, plentiful and appetizing. We are hoping to stay there again soon. Disneyland was not far away and Disneyland was probably 100 miles.

Had a great time, is family friendly

The early complementary breakfast is helpful,for those that don't want to leave the hotel. Stay away from the powdered scrambled eggs(yuck), but the egg omelets were great but I only seen those one time out of the week I stayed. The rest of the breaksfast choices were great and fresh. The parking garage is located under the hotel, parking can be tight. Would have liked some kind of light to lead the way to the bathroom(bring a nightlight for little ones). The price of the room were a bit high, considering it wasn't on the 4th of July week.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

There are lots of restaurants(olive garden, chilis, ihop) located down the strip but be careful, the streets have one ways and no U turns, which can make it frustrating.(bring a map or tourbook) Hotel is half a mile from sea world. Drugstore is across the street.

More family friendly than business friendly

I wouldn't recommend this hotel for anyone wanting to get a great nights sleep. Walls are quite thin. No fitness facility either. However, its located very nicely for SeaWorld/Mission Bay tourists. Its actually quite close to the downtown and airport, along with accessible to I-8 and I-5 both.

Somewhat satisfied

The hotel itself was OK. My wife and I were there to unwind and relax and enjoy some movies together. Instead, we ended up watching DVD's we purchased on our laptop. Sunday night came along, I wanted to see Monday night football. The hotel said it got that station, but my room, no.

Comfortable stay

Overall a good expereince. Room was clean and quiet. Staff friendly and seemed eager to please. Lobby and common areas were clean and well maintained. Bottled water in the room was complimentary. Room had fridge and microwave Parking was free (or you could say included in the price of the room)-but watchout the spaces are tiny. The hotel was not in a very attractive area of San Diego-but it was close to may attractions like the Zoo, Old Town, Sea World, Mission Beach etc. Otherwise no complaints-stay was quite satisfactory.

For a good night's sleep

Warm welcome. Fairly large room. Clean, but simple. Basic bathroom amenities. Downside: one sink for two people. No light lightswitch at door. Not the right place for finicky people, but we slept well both nights.

Several excellent inexpensive restaurants in the shopping center across the street. Very short drive to SEA WORLD. A block from freeway entrance. Try Phil's BarBQ 2 blocks away.

Bad Location

My first time at a Holiday Inn Express. The room was accommodated with a small fridge, microwave, sofa, coffee table and a computer chair. Liked how the pillows were really comfortable and labled firm and soft. Shower had a nice shower head. The location was really bad, not very visible since it was only two floors (ground being the parking, really tight).
