Amazing space and breakfast
Alexis G. on 10/16/2019

This hotel was perfect for our family, me, my husband and 3 kids. We got the queen suite and it included 2 queen beds and a couch with a pull out bed, there were two tv’s and had more than enough space for all 5 of us. The room was clean, and the hotel is new so everything was updated and fresh. The free breakfast was great and always something I look for in a hotel, it included Cinnabon cinnamon rolls, cereal, bagels, toast, eggs, omelets, sausage, yogurt, bacon,pancakes, and biscuits and gravy. Plenty to choose from. It was centrally located to everything and sea world and San Diego zoo were both about 10 minutes away. The staff was extremely friendly and hospitable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone planning a vacation in San Diego.

Loved this hotel!

I LOVE this hotel!! It is SO clean, modern and awesome! I love the style of the rooms, delicious cinnamon rolls for breakfast, and the friendly and accommodating staff! They were so kind and helped our stay be even better. The pool was a little smaller but I loved the glass fire pit area next to it along with the outdoor dining area - it was so fun to relax there. I also loved how centrally located it was - everything we did (and we did a LOT) was only about 10 minutes away whichever direction we went - it was awesome! I loved this hotel so much I recommended it to one of my best friends for their honeymoon and they LOVED it too! Great hotel choice. :)

Great family hotel!

We loved our stay! All of the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. I also loved that booking through Get Away Today removed an 18 dollar a day parking fee that others had to pay for. Breakfast was good too, especially the cinnamon rolls. Close to Balboa park, and Sea World. We will definitely look at staying here again!

Nice pool, patio area

We really liked the pool. The fireplace was so nice on the cool march night we spent out there. The rooms are clean and nice. No complaints, except for the San Diego roadways! But I guess the hotel staff can't help that. We were really happy with this hotel.

Great property!!

We booked this property and were so happy that we did. Check-in was flawless and we appreciated that the elevators required a key pass to go anywhere. The hotel was modern, our room was clean, and the pool area was nice and enjoyed by our kids. Breakfast was very good and lived up to my expectations for HI Express. The beds were comfortable and the hotel was quiet. We would definitely stay here anytime we are visiting San Diego. It is also a short drive to Sea World.

Great location to get to both SeaWorld and the zoo. Very modern and great atmosphere. The free breakfast is all you need to get your day off to a great start. There is a family dining cafe next door (walking distance) that also has great food and reasonable prices. Great experience!

This hotel is awesome!! It's a newer hotel with a modern feel. Our family loved the fun beach feel and summer theme. It was a reminder that we were in San Diego. We also enjoyed the free breakfast and free parking.
