Affordable nightly parking at $10. Easy access to SD airport and restaurants. Room is clean and well maintained. Window treatments are a tad old and falling off the sliders in suite which is unexpected in upgrade room.

This hotel is ideally located, with the airport just down the road, restaurants and marina across the road, and a delicious coffee shop just a short walk away (Better Buzz Coffee). There's also a Cafe Loma located on site, but we waited 45 minutes to be seated after we were somehow forgotten and then ended up leaving due to a... More

Stayed here for two nights on business. The location is right across from the bay, and within walking distance of many Point Loma hotspots like Liberty Station.

It's one of the best Holiday Inn hotels I've ever stayed. Located at the bay it benefits from quiet surroundings and great places to eat around. Gym is very good there. I strongly recommend HI breakfast, it's 15 dollars if you stay in the hotel, and you can choose everything you want a la carte. If you love American anthem... More

This hotel is about what I expected from Holiday Inn. Reasonable accommodations for the price. The shuttle service from/to airport is prompt and an added value. The physical layout is somewhat scattered. Since it does not rain often that is. It a terrible problem. Good location to several restaurants.
