Not bad but some downfalls

Pros: Near I-5 and between La Jolla and downtown SD. Cheap place to stay near Pacific Beach Some good eats around Good size room, lots of tv selection, small fitness area and pool, free breakfast, clean. Cons: Hard to find the road to get into the hotel. Parking spaces are tight, I dont recommenced driving a large car to park here. Some of the rooms have flat screens, mind didn't, remote didnt even work. WINDOW CURTAINs DO NOT SHUT. There are some light white curtains that block out people from seeing in but, the AC vent is right below it and blows it open. The room was never really dark and the sun rose straight into my room and into my face on the bed. Overall decent hotel but some quirks prevent it from being great.

Clean, quiet & great breakfast room!

While the hotel was a bit difficult to find, the friendly staff and the wonderful continental breakfast room more than made up for the location. Two big pluses for us were how quiet and clean the hotel was. It is an older hotel with a few problems such as a very loud vent fan in the bathroom, and a few non- working outlets. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at the hotel very much, and would return.

Cramped and Crowded

Hotel was not easily accessible, and parking was difficult. They were remodeling during our visit so it was noisy with a lot of commotion in the halls with workers coming and going.

Perfect location and very clean.

Exellent mattress, my friends and I loved it. The rooms are very clean, seems to be recently renovated. Great location. We would enjoy a better choice of breakfast items. The coffee is really bad and food items seems all to have a 6 months expiration date, but yet is a good deal since most places at similar price range, serves you donut and coofee only. They have also a small coffee maker in the room, so if you are a coffee drinker, I advice you buy your own coffee and use the coffee maker. The bathrooms do not have vents, so what happens there, stays there. We had a good time in the pool area.

Not much to talk about

The hotel had a musty smell. The rooms are old hotel. The bathroom door did not latch. After dinner, we did not find a single parking spot for our 2009 Corvette. We did not want to park on the street as some of the other guest were doing. The desk attendant allowed us to park in the spot in front for employees. That we appreciated. The exit from the hotel onto the main street is very difficult. The hotel is about four blocks from the beach - that we liked.

Great value for $

Very clean rooms, remodeled, almost new furniture, very quiet, great staff - prompt and friendly. Soon after arrival we discovere (the hard way) that the bathroom did not have any ventilation, so it stayed damp and smelly. We talked with [...] at reception and she immediately took action, consulting with a technician and offerred options either moving us to a different room with a fan in the bathroom, or have him install a fan in our bathroom. Great service! Much obliged!

inconveniently located

The staff at the Holiday Inn Express at Mission Bay were extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel itself was not much to write home about. The weren't any good views and the lobby was extremely small. The bathrooms should have a separate sink/toilet area and they really needed a fan in the bathrooms!

Great choice for long stays

We visited many different attractions in San Diego throughout the week. The motel was close to Sea World , Petco Park, and other main attractions. The breakfast was awesome and the king bed rooms were spacious. The staff was very friendly.
