    Better call it motel 6 bad room smell

    This is 5 motels Holiday inn bought together and tried to make something out of it. Seen many Holiday inn this one tops bottom. First room they gave me is motel 6 style. Just stairs and room smelled like they kept 10 dogs in room night before. Room looked like the 80s. New renovated room was given at other side of complex. Repark car and with no signs to follow good look finding rooms 21xx. Room was supposed to have been renovated. Think this was only the carpet that was changed. For the few hrs of sleep ok but will not go back here.

    Slept awesome.

    I don’t know what kind of bed/bedding they use but it was by far the most comfortable I’ve slept in. I’d love to purchase it for my home. We went for a quick weekend trip for SeaWorld and a concert at the pechanga arena. Just perfect for what we needed even though it rained.

    Great hotel for a moderate price

    Very nice and affordable accommodations. Bright and sunny rooms with a distinct view of the bay. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly and responsive. Met or exceeded all our expectations for a moderately priced hotel. Highly recommend.

    There must be better rooms for £220 a night

    This was a business trip so I was not too concerned with the finer things. If I had booked this for a family trip then I would be concerned that I could of gone somewhere better for the price. The rooms in the annex are outdated and you have constant noise from 2 sides of the highway (from your front door and the balcony side). My room wasn't cleaned for 3 days until I "reserved" a day to cleaning. Having said that, the pool was a welcome break and the grounds overlooking the "condo" type room were pleasant. The reception staff were attentive and polite. I had breakfast ($30 voucher) in the nearby cafe. The menu is typical American (fried food or waffles) and the service is slow due to being busy. The staff were 50% rude as they didn't speak english. Uber trips from the hotel to Seaworld (£12) and downtown (£17) were all good and the boardwalk restaurants and wildlife are a must to see which are just over the highway from the hotel (The seals, pelicans and heron are always on form and there is a bustle of fishing going and coming back from their trips). Opposite the hotel is a US Navy base which sounds "Reveille" and "sunset" everyday if your alarm fails. Overall, nicely placed for north or south San D travel but super disappointed in the quality of the building for the price.
