This Holiday Inn Express property is directly across the street from the historic EL CORTEZ Hotel, and is the former hotel annex & banquent rooms of the El Cortez so the rooms are historic, but remodeled and CLEAN! Midge & Zuyla at the front desk were FANTASTIC at checkin and during our entire stay! Jose, maintenance engineer had to play shuttle van driver for entire hotel and the Rodeway Inn across the street. Jose was so cheerful, efficient, PATIENT, and helpful with van service to airport and nearby restaurants. This Holiday Inn Express has free shuttle service to the San Diego Cruise Port, which made me choose to stay at this property over nearby Hilton hotels, even though I am a Hilton HHonors Gold member. I am now a proud Priority Club Gold member convert and am treated with care & respect by Priority Club (take notice Hilton HHonors). Thanks for a great stay!
Great mexican food dive tip: POKEZ Mexican Diner on the corner of Tenth Ave & 'E' Street. A real dive, scruffy, grungy, yet friendly atmosphere and staff, but the food is FANTASTIC and cheap! Try the Unsual, Usual "Joey Special", a HUGE plate of delicious green tomatillo marinated boneless chicken, rice, beans, veggies, smothered in green sauce and melted cheese! Steaming side of fresh, hot flour tortillas. Comp chips & salsa, only a buck for seconds. Soda is only a buck, no alcohol. Cash, Visa/MC. We are going back to both!
