It was almost perfect, there isn't a single drinking fountain. But the best part was the shuttle driver. He was very welcoming and talkative. His name was Zaid and he honestly has a pretty great story. He got me from the airport really quick and it was all great.

This was a great stay at this hotel. It was clean, fresh and seemed to be a new facility. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly specially Elia,Art and Ivan. It is located need to the san diego Airport, which was initially the main reason I chose this hotel, but was surprisingly pleased to find it an excellent stay. THANKS!

We have stayed at MANY Holiday Inn Resorts and this by far was the worst. We chose this resort because of the proximity to the things we had planned and previous reviews. First off the resort itself is not very pleasing to the eye, it is basically on the main highway so you are stuck hearing traffic all night long....

The place is clean and the stuff is very friendly. Zaid, the shuttle driver was very helpful and made the drive from the airport to the hotel very pleasant, he even recognised me while I was walking back from the Old Town and offered me a ride. That's what I call great customer service.

Great property for the $$$ investment... Nice folks.... Location by the freeway was much less of a problem than I might have expected... Breakfast was pretty good but head for Old Town for dinner just a short distance away !!!

We recently stayed here for our son's graduation from MCRD. The hotel is a little older, however the rooms were clean. Every employee we encountered was overly friendly and accommodating.

Everything was great, from the warm reception, the comfortable room, the secure underground parking and the shuttle to the cruise terminal and pick-up at the airport. Special mention of Fernando, the shuttle driver for his courteous service. The included breakfast is very good. Second time we have stayed here and will definitely stay again when next in S.D.
