We cannot say enough about the wonderful FREE shuttle services offered by this hotel. After searching numerous hotels that offer "free airport shuttle", but didn't start until 7 or 8 a.m. and finding it all very aggravating (we had an 8 a.m. flight and needed to be there around 6 a.m.) we came across this Holiday Inn Express one. I...

So, it's not in the most glamorous location in San Diego. Though they say "Old Town", Old Town is a good shuttle bus ride away. But the folks are really nice, the hotel is clean and safe, the shuttle from the airport is quick and free, and they will pretty much take you anywhere close by shuttle for free as...

Jose at the front desk was a bright spot on a tough day. I had to make a last-minute trip because of a medical emergency and didn't have a hotel reservation. Jose helped me find a handful of discounts to get an affordable room on a busy Saturday evening. He was patient and generous and I greatly appreciated his kindness....

This was by far the nicest Holiday Inn Express I have stayed in. The lobby was small but luxurious. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. There is a very well-stocked mini-mart just off the lobby, and you can charge your purchase to your room. I had a room with a single queen bed. The bed was super comfortable...

At first I thought a made a big mistake. The hotel looks more like a motel, and I'm sure at one time it was. This is not your traditional Holiday Inn. The rooms are tiny, but comfortable and clean. Tip: ask for a room that is furthest from the busy highway, otherwise it will be noisy. The owners/ management have...

“Just bring earplugs. Rooms on the street side are a little quieter, but you are always sensitive to sounds when you aren't in your own home.”
