Great value, but limited parking.

The pillows left much to be desired. But for included breakfast, wifi, and parking, it would be hard to find a nicer hotel or better deal.

Recently remodeled, much nicer than before and much nicer than expected. Quiet, clean, comfortable. Can't beat the price. I'll stay there again!

Annoying wetness

The room was not quite fully renovated, so it was missing some standard security features on the door. The exhaust fan in the bathroom was not functional and sort of dangling. The shower was not installed correctly and water pooled near a floor drain. The bathroom floor was not graded correctly so it didn't drain.. The kicker was the bathroom flooding when the upstairs guests showered. Very bad.

Met our needs well

Right off of Hwy. #5. Close to many pertinent locations. Breakfast was very adequate. Housekeeping was very good.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The McDonalds across the road provides $20 off coupons for up to six Sea World admissions. They are good through the end of Sept 2011. Wish we'd have known before we purchased our tickets!

Pretty OK

I was on a business trip staying 3 nights. Hotel was clean and comfy. There was a certain smell in the hallway that did not go away. My colleagues said they smelled fish, but what I smelled was some strange mixture of cooking oil; not sure what it was. Sofa and bed pretty decent and comfortable. There was free breakfast every morning, but not a whole lot in the menu.

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.

Okay for price

This was not one of the more updated Holiday Inn Express hotels I've stayed at. I'm usually quite pleased with my stays, but this hotel needs major updating. The free wifi access is quite slow and doesn't extend throughout the hotel very well. The first room I was in, the refrigerator was either not plugged in or broken; in the second room (I moved because there was a baby screaming in the room next to me for over two hours), the shower had hot and cold water reversed. In addition, at one point the tv remote's batteries went, and when I went to the desk to ask for new batteries, the clerk fumbled around in a drawer for several minutes - it doesn't look like they keep these common needs in stock well. That aside, the rooms were clean and neat, and the staff were pleasant.

clean, good eats, convenient location

Although it was a little challenging to find the hotel driveway, the staff was helpful and polite once I arrived. The room had updated furnishings and was clean. Bathroom was a skooch small but there was a refrigerator and microwave in the room- very convenient! There was a fairly extensive breakfast buffet with quite a few options- both hot and cold! Pool was nice but, on the negative side, the jacuzzi had quite a bit of debris in it- ew! My room was facing Garnet Ave and so was a little noisy at times. Overall, a nice place to stay- clean, affordable, convenient, and comfortable room.
