We spent one night in San Diego and picked this HIE which is very centrally located and just a few minutes to the entrance of Sea World and a very short drive to Old Town. Yes, it is near the freeway and a major road and it was a little bit noisy at times mainly from the road and not the freeway for our room anyway. We had a room facing the road, maybe the rooms facing the storage building to the back may be more quiet. Not sure. Although the area was not the most scenic, it was very close to retail stores and restaurants. Our room was clean and appeared to be updated. The mattress was okay, not the most comfortable but you get an option of a soft pillow or a firm pillow. Huge sink space and nice amenities and very clean. There is no mini-frig in our room but noticed you can request a microwave from front desk. The staff was very friendly and pleasant. Check in and check out were both very fast. The breakfast was decent for a hotel of this level. They had a very good variety - cereals, fresh fruit, hard boiled and scrambles eggs, yogurt, bacon, biscuits and gravy, muffins, bagels, toast and pancakes and coffee, tea, and juices. Wish we inquired about the omelets though. It was constantly being stocked by the staff. The parking was complimentary which is a nice plus. We did not have too much trouble with parking as the hotel did not appear to be completely booked. The spaces are pretty tight but it was nice to see that they had security cameras in the parking garage area and one needs a room key to get into the lobby area/elevator from the garage. Overall, we had a pleasant stay and would probably stay here again.
