Verified Reviews of Holiday Inn Express Downtown San Diego

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Good location, great city. Good value for price."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I stayed at this hotel for a one day meeting and then some vacation time after that. The staff is very helpful and friendly, and San Diego is a beautiful location. The rooms were "ok". I had an outlet that was pulled away from the wall, and the bathroom had a hair dryer that didn't work when I turned it on - so I pulled the plug out of the wall socket and both the plug and the socket were black. I had to unplug a lamp in order to use the coffee maker - the room could use a few more outlets! The morning breakfast was very good though, and that added a lot to the value of the stay. One negative was that I asked for an American Flag for our meeting and the hotel apparently didn't have one and they offered me a fourth of July type ribbon that was red white and blue. Internet connection was good and overall for the price, I would use this hotel again.
