Efficient check in, clean hotel, friendly staff, convenient airport shuttle, would stay here again.

It’s a trusted name and I knew what to expect

Most staff was rude. Stuck on property even though I was told specifically they would take us wherever we needed to go

The one glaring miss on the property details and pictures is that the property is next to the I-5 freeway. If you get a room facing the freeway then you will not get any sleep during the night as car's zoom through I-5. Overall a very pricey property for what they offer

All was good

The staff was so accommodating and amazing! Art at the front desk and Nick the shuttle driver were so friendly and helpful!

Art, the gentleman who checked us in was very friendly, happy to help…he made us feel special. Please thank him again for us!!

This place was wonderful. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Bathrooms were gorgeous!! I will stay here anytime. Pick up and drop off at the airport was fast and easy.

I need more than 100 words to express the racist rude treatment I received at holiday inn Express old town san Diego. After taking a 5 hour flight from florida I called the hotel for a shuttle pick up. 1hr 45 mins later, the shuttle never came even though I called numerous of times. We caught a cab when we got to the front desk the rude agent told me that the reservation was cancelled because of a declined credit card. I explained to him that the reservation was made in February and I changed my card because it was compromised. So I asked him if I could possibly get a room, he said there wasnt any rooms available. I didn't believe him because of how rude he was. I went on orbitz and booked and paid for a room, I went back to the front desk and told him I just paid for a room and he said to me that their wasnt any room. I asked him how is it that there's no room when I had just paid $344 on orbitz for a room at the hotel. He threw my card down on the desk without looking in the system for my reservations and proceeded to shout your card was declined and there's no more rooms . I contacted orbitz where they said that my reservation was valid and they should honor it. We sat in that lobby for hours trying to find a hotel in San Diego but all was sold out. The man then told us to leave the lobby 12 AM in the morning!!!!! We had no where to go!!! We were strangers in this state. He went as far as asking the shuttle driver to take us to the hotel next door that was closed to

Convenient to the San Diego Airport. Room was clean and comfortable. ALL STAFF were very professional, helpful, and friendly.

The room was perfect for our stay and the gentleman who drives the shuttle was amazing and super friendly

It was okay for what I needed

Very friendly shuttle driver, clean rooms. Breakfast was very disappointing.

Rooms were nice and modern. Very clean and close to freeway

Unfortunately I didn’t had a chance to switch to another hotel at the time i arrived . Smelled like marijuana all the way to my room . I had to change 3 times my room because the moldy, sweet covered with deodorant smell most of the rooms had. The next day staff was not that friendly .

The front desk staff and the airport shuttle driver were extremely friendly and helpful! They made our arrival stress-free!

It was conveniently close to old town and downtown mins from seaport village.
