We finally arrived in San Diego, California at 4:00pm Pacific Time. It lived up to its expectations of being a lovely city and was definitely worth the flying time. After landing and exiting the terminal I continued to get my bags from the baggage area. I recommend that you lock your bag or suitcase and and put a tag on it because there are many …

Woke up today feeling off colour again and instead of going to the San Diego Zoo decided to go to the Doctors. Fortunately there was one about 1 mile away so we walked there and after a short checkup were told that I had Acute Bronchitis. The Dr said I had to take it easy for 2 or 3 days and gave me some antibiotics and medicine …

Today is another beautiful day and by 8am we were packed and ready to leave our Resort. We took a taxi to the airport, as it was the same cost as the shuttle and went there direct. This was same driver who brought us home earlier in the week with the groceries and he offered us a discount then and we took him up on the offer. He …

Up reasonably early and started checking out the neighbourhood. We have to be so careful crossing the roads, as they are so wide (at least 6 lanes) and we first checked out the Casino across the road for breakfast. Unfortunately it was a Sports Centre and the Casino is some 30 miles away on some Indian Reservation. That sorted out we …

    Wasn't the best area but still a good hotel to stay at. Close to Sea World and the San Diego Zoo, so is really convenient for my stay.

    Pleasantly surprised

    from

    I almost cancelled our reservations because of the bad reviews but I was pleasantly surprised. The room was very clean. The service was great. The pool was clean and very warm.

    I don't think it is necessarily the nicest area in San Diego, but I did not feel unsafe at all. It was well worth it for the price.

    A Disappointing experience

    from

    What a disappointing property - We booked this "Inn" based on a 3 star rating from AAA - how in the world they can consider this a 3 star property is indeed a mystery - The "inn" lobby is indeed beautiful but that is about all that even comes close to a decent property - Our room was small and not particularly clean, it had a large hole that someone had apparently punched in our bathroom door (it was obvious no repair job was even attempted) - Also guests down on the 1st level were cooking on an outdoor grill - We felt as though we were in the ghetto! DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT, stay here - you WILL be disappointed

    Great Vacation- would return again

    from

    We drove from Vegas and stayed at this Holiday Inn for a week in May, 2004 with our 3-year old son. We got the room for the week, along with passes for Sea World & the San Diego Zoo as a wedding present from our close friends, but after reading some of the posts here, I was a little concerned as to what we might find when we arrived at the hotel.

    I was pleased to find a very nice, clean room, and we had no problems at all with the linens, service, etc. Like the previous post stated, there are plenty of restaurants, stores, etc VERY close by, which is great, especially if you have kids. The restaurant adjacent to the Holiday Inn offered our son free meals every day of our visit, & had great service, which was a plus.

    Regarding the post about parking in front of the rooms, yes our room was a bottom floor room, & we got to park our car directly in front of our door, which made it very much easier to pack/unpack the car, especially with children, so we considered that a plus. If you're looking for a RESORT, or an ocean-front view-HOTEL, this is not the place for you. But if you want a nice, reasonably-priced place to stay, this place is definitely a place we would stay at again. (and p.s. - we're from Vegas-so we're used to those big resort-type hotels, but this hotel served us just fine! --it just depends on what you're looking for. )

    Roach motel

    from

    This is a motel and a DUMPPPP. Do not let the picture fool you. The rooms are dirty and smell. The linens I am convinced are not washed on a regular basis. This is a MUST MISS. The one night we stayed (we were forced to because of a late plane arrival) was enough for a life time.

    A 'Psyo' type of hotel

    from

    I stayed with my wife 3 nights in this hotel, as we went all over the place in California for the honey moon (25 days, 10 hotels). This was by far the worst of all : we could'nt do anything, as our agency had already made the reservations from Italy. Room dirty, small, the door in front of the parking : a Psyo" type"of hotel. Had my wife cryng the first night : a nightmare!

    This is Bates Motel

    from

    Please do not be fooled by the website. This is not a hotel it is a motel. We were to stay in this hotel for six nights. We checked out the next morning. The rooms are disgusting. The service is poor at best.

    The area is not one to have children (several "adult entertainment" establishments). We checked out and found the best hotel Ocean Park Inn Hotel. You will spend the same money for a million times better room.

    Right on the beach, three minutes from Sea World, with a fantastic staff. The holiday inn is a dump.

    Cleaner linens

    from

    My husband , four young children , and myself stayed at this hotel for three nights. Our stay started Aug.23. The first night, we checked in and left for the beach. Upon returning late in the evening, I discover that two pillows were dirty, covers had horrible looking stains, and the sheets did not smell clean. When we called to the front desk, there were no pillows available and housekeeping was not available. We were guaranteed, that the beds would have completely fresh and clean quilts and linens, as well as clean pillows. This did not happen. On the second night, the same dirty pillows, smelly sheets and covers were in the room. Housekeeping also left dirty towels on the shower rod.

    Because it was late at night, the front desk could not offer any housekeeping. We were compensated one night and 20.0 off another night.

    The third night was the only night that the hotel changed the linens to clean and fresh ones. Needless to say, I strongly do not recommend this hotel to anyone who cares about cleanliness. It is not worth any amount of money. My family and I will never stay there again.

    Clean, Friendly, Comfortable

    from

    We stayed at this property from July 12 - 19, 2003. We had a two-room suite. It was a bit small, but very clean, comfortable and quiet. We never heard our next door "neighbors" except for the closing of their doors. The staff, including the evening manager, front desk and housekeeping, were very friendly and helpful. It is located close to numerous restaurants including well known "fast food" places. If you have booked a room which has a refrigerator and microwave, there are two grocery stores nearby.

    This is a very kid-friendly property. The pool was used almost exclusively by children. It is also nearby to Sea World, Old Town and the Embarcadero. You can watch the fireworks display from Sea World every night if you have a room on the upper floors.

    The hotel was sold out every night we were there so it is advised to book early if you want a good vacation value.

    Don't be a fool

    from

    Upon check in time, the people there said they didn't have the room I reserved ready, so they gave me another room. Also, this room was very far away from everything, such as the pool, restaurant, and even the ice machine. Not only that, there are no refrigerators or microwaves in the room. They should let people have those if they at least stay for more than 2 days. Don't let the picture fool you, it's not as nice in person. This hotel is in a very ghetto, unclean, neighborhood. Forget the alarm clock, you'll have wake up calls throughout the night and morning with sirens of police cars. I promise to God I heard at least 6 sirens every night and morning. The room was very small and the sheets did not smell clean. I really think they need to improve this place. Please believe me, it will save you a lot of money. I wish someone would have told me something about this hotel before hand.

    Reactive not Proactive

    from

    We stayed at the Holiday In Mission Bay/Sea World from 11/15/02 through 11/22/02. Suites were very small. The first suite they put us in smelled moldy and there was water damage on the ceiling. The first night a huge spider crawled across my bed and upon further review there were bug legs, etc. in the bed. The maids came and stripped both beds and cleaned everything, but it still made us uneasy. That night was free. There was also a problem with the door. It seems if a red light comes on before it turns green then your door is not locking. We didn't know that and our room was left open for three straight days. Again, they gave us a night free. The washers and dryers were beat up and two of them were down. Overall you get what you pay for and they were more than willing to give us nights free, but if they were a little more proactive will problems versus reactive they wouldn't have to give away free nights. Also, don't let the picture fool you. This hotel is OLD.
