    Good location, near highway. Close to little Italy. Nice shuttl service. Walking distance to some attractions. With a little effort we found free parking on the streets nearby.

    San Diego is a really nice city to visit, make sure you go out to Coranado Island. Do Not go to Tijuana we felt really intimidated and it took hours to get back over the boarder into the USA

    When we went to check out our bill was incorrect, we had been charged $20 a night more than what we had booked through Booked.net. I had printed a copy of our reservation before I had left home when I showed it to the duty manager I was told not to worry, they would make the adjustments and email me the correct bill, which would be there when I arrived home. I arrived home yesterday, there is no email and upon checking my credit card the hotel has charged me the inflated amount. I have tried to contact them by phone but just get through to a call centre.

    My room was really very clean and very confortable. People from the staff were always very friendly. Good breakfast, with quite large choice. Good position of the hotel. I enjoyed very much my stay at the Holiday Inn San Diego and surely would suggest it.

    I just had good stay.

    We liked the location of the Holiday Inn. The hotel lobby was neat and clean. The restaurant area was the same. The front desk personnel were awesome. They were so accomodating and friendly. Our first impression of the front desk staff was "service with a smile"!

    Very good hotel that I'd recommend. The free shuttle service to wherever you wanted to go (I assume within reason though....!) was excellent. Literally a 10 min walk, or a slow 15 min walk from the Gaslamp area and everything you need. Someone said in a review that you can here the freeway and aeroplanes landing, well we were on the 14th floor for 3 nights and didnt hear a single thing. Very clean room. There is nothing that I could really complain about with this hotel

    The only small thing is the guy that checked us in - and coincidently out - called Ryan who was very friendly but he tried to charge us $17 a day for parking when my written confirmation and this website at the time said $15. After me mentioning it to him on two separate occasions he was still adamant it was $17 and that the written confirmation meant nothing which was obviously incorrect. Luckily though his Supervisor was present for the 2nd occasion and she has had the knowledge and common sense to resolve it in a matter of seconds. Just a shame Ryan couldn't have done it himself

    The shuttle drivers were polite and friendly.

    There was crud in the tub. The tub/shower was flooding over and faulty. I had to waste time calling for service. There was no wifi in the room as promised and I had to waste time talking to their wifi providers who promised to find a solution and get back to me and never did. This was extremely inconvenient. Wifi in the room was one of the main reasons I booked with this hotel. The shuttle was available only when not busy with airport runs. The restaurant was extremely overpriced.

    The shuttle driver took us into the gas lamp district and back for dinner, saving us a cab ride. Very friendly.

    Food options were terrible, especially if you like healthy food.

    Very friendly staff, spacious and tidy rooms and bathroom (more than I would expect for this price), and they come to pick you up from the airport with their free shuttle service.

    Location could have been absolutely perfect, if it was just a bit more near gaslamp quarter / downtown area.

    I really liked the cleanliness of the room and the small mirrorwith light in the restroom

    I did not like the act that the pipping was so loud I was hardly able to sleep, The restrooms are very nice but the skidding doors might not be comfortable for people that want a bit more privacy. The lights in the restroom were way too dimmed

    When I approached the Hotel Lobby, it appeared to be a little “Dated” and I was not sure about how the rooms may look. When arriving at the room I was very satisfied to see that the room was very clean & renovated which made my stay very pleasant. When going to the Hotel restaurant for breakfast, I could not believe how good the breakfast food actually was, and how friendly the restaurant staff was. Even though the restaurant is small, it is very clean and organized.

    The only thing I did not like was that they advertised “Room includes Breakfast”, but it was actually only a $20.00 voucher to put towards breakfast. By the time you order your food, coffee, juices, one person can spend at least about $15.00. I thought that was misleading.

    The hotel is located next to motorways. I was assigned three different rooms but all of them was too noisy to sleep comfortably. The breakfast is served in a small bistro style room. On a normal weekday morning it was so crowded that we had to wait at least 20 mins to get our ordered food. No buffet is available. By 8:30 half of the items on the menu were not available. All-in-all the hotel was a disappointment - not the standard of a European Holiday Inn.

    Stay was good. It would have been better if the cab driver knew about you andhow to get to you. Wouyld have saved me time and money.
