“Staying Ten days in San Diego at HIE San Diego Airport - Old Town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

It has been a long business trip, therefore I did not need an hotel on the sea side, in the downtown, in an amusing and elegant place. This hotel is located behind the I-5 in a quite and calm zone and at 5 minutes walking distance from Old Town. Clean, quite and comfortable. No meeting rooms, no business center (this is way it is an "Express" Hotel), however the staff makes your staying very good. In particular I would say thanks to Elia for his hospitality and to Vangie, a very proactive and "multi-tasking" smart front desk lady.
The shuttle service has been perfect.

Room Tip: 3rd floor and on the side opposite to I-5

The building is nothing special, but the room was comfortable enough for sleeping. However, the front desk staff was extremely helpful, even remembering my name - not something I expect at a Holiday Inn Express. This hotel also provides free rides to the Old Town area, and our driver Fernando was very friendly and accomodating. They recommended a nice restaurant, dropped us off, and picked us up when we were done. Way more than I expected, and it made our last night in California one of the most fun of our vacation. Also the breakfast room was well stocked, with a fiesta atmosphere - lots of fun. Great place to stay to catch a flight out of San Diego.

Everything came together for our four-night stay while attending a conference. Breakfast was good, with lots of choices for healthy eating, the shuttle ran on time, the staff was truly friendly, the room was very clean, the pool was inviting and also clean, and the price was quite reasonable. We had a room fronting the highway, and noise was not an issue because the air conditioner/fan acts as white noise (and I am the princess and the pea when it comes to noise). Parking is free, as it should be in a hotel.

Stayed here before our cruise. Excellent customer service. We were within walking distance to Old Town and. When we did not want to walk, there was always the shuttle service. Staff was responsive to our needs. Our room was clean. Will definitely stay here again the next time we are in San Diego.

Shuttle drivers very good. In particular, Fernando was very helpful and friendly. Staff was responsive to our needs and seemed to be efficient. If using HIE Old Town as a hotel to visit MCRD, don't bother renting a car - the staff at the hotel took very good care of getting us back and forth.

Stayed here before a flight and did a Park n' Fly and everything was great. Service was excellent...room (facing front) was very good and the shuttle was on time and efficient. Will definitely stay again.

Room Tip: We stayed in a room in the front of the hotel which was quiet
