business trip

the hotel was very convenient to the airport and to rental cars. It is a clean but older facility. Not as nice as most Holiday Inn expresses I have stayed at. the desk staff were very helpful and the breakfast was not bad. I would stay there again, mainly for the convenience, especially if one has an early flight to catch.

First time in San Diego

The hotel was very nice. Clean, the staff was so friendly....easy to get around. My room was facing the interstate so I could hear that, but I was so excited to be in town I didn't mind. I could see planes taking off from the airport which was fun. Couldn't hear them, just see them. Overall, great hotel. I would stay here again in a heart beat.

Great for airport

Nice hotel. Close to the airport but you don't feel like you are crammed under the flight path like at some other hotels.

As expected

This is a cheap hotel in a convenient location. Nothing special, but okay at $109 per night given its proximity to downtown and the harbor.

Not Great

Only stay here if you can get a really good room rate (under $130). Otherwise much better value available elsewhere. Decent free breakfast included. Fitness Room is a joke. WiFi signal is weak and unstable. Alleged hard-wire network is NOT available in most rooms. Some of the rooms are accessed from outside and noisy.

Taco stand down the street is surprisingly good.

Good location for conference

The hotel is well kept. The shuttle service to the conference center was key. The staff is the highlight of the hotel. All were curteous, friendly and genuine. The workout room is very small.
