Awesome weekend get away hotel!

If you're considering a reasonably priced, clean, and well located hotel - the Holiday Inn in Old Town is perfect! The location is right in the middle of everything. Literally a 8-10 min drive south to downtown/Gaslamp or 8-10 min drive north to Mission Beach/SeaWorld. The ramp to the freeway is a very short drive as well! Josh, the front desk attendant was friendly, accommodating, and had many recommendations on restaurants, places to explore, and even got us a service car to get us around on a night we planned to do some drinking and dancing! I would definitely stay here again!

Eddie V's Prime Seafood has one of the best Rib Eye Steaks I've every had! 22oz bone in that melts in your mouth! Pair it with a local Cabernet and you're all set!

Very Accomadating Hotel

I enjoyed my vacation in San Diego, the hotel was very nice. Having complimentary breakfast was also a plus. They are hard to come by in hotels anymore.

Old town was near and there are lots to see nearby if driving also. We enjoyed going to Julian on top of Mt Cuyamaca, the beaches, the drive along Highway 1 (Coast Drive) and shopping at Seaport Village. We also went to Balboa Park and checked out all the artist galleries.

Overall Great

This was an overall good trip we loved the free breakfast and the shuttle was also convenient. The hotel employees seemed very helpful and the rooms were pretty clean and nice. You can hear the freeway from the room but it is nice to be within walking distance to downtown Old Town. We would stay there again.

Clean and accessible

The Comfort Inn was a great value. The rooms were a decent size, clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly. When we had a problem with our card key a maintanence work immediately took care of it. It is a quick walk to Old Town - plenty of great restaurants and shops. The convenience store in the lobby was great - snacks, sandwichwes even bottles of wine. We rented a car and it is very easy access to the freeway and the free parking is a nice perk. We took a cab downtown and it was only $12 so very convenient to the downtown area if you do not want to drive. There are also trolleys and trains in Old Town. The only drawback was that the fitness center was closed for renevations. Other than that it was a great stay.
