Verified Reviews of Holiday Inn Express Downtown San Diego

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Okay Stay!"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
I was very upset during this visit. We got to the hotel on time but they didn't have any of our keys ready. Keep in mind we are traveling with 80 high school students and had two buses outside waiting. We were told that it would take them 10 minutest to get us all of our rooms and that they were just going through final inspection to make sure they were properly cleaned. This was also not truthful which was the most frustrating part. We kept getting our room keys a couple at a time (over the course of two and a half hours) and were sending the kids in small groups. It was very chaotic and the part that made me the most upset was that our time was wasted. We left LA so early so that the kids could get two college tours in and make it to the hotel at 3:00 pm so that they could have free time and explore San Diego (a city they had never been to). Although I still would have been upset that the rooms weren't ready, we could have stored the kids luggage in the lobby and let them have free time had we known that it was going to be another two and a half hours before we got all of our room keys. We had a 6:00 dinner reservation that we had to walk to so there was no time to allow the kids to explore the area as we had planned and by the time we were done with dinner the sun was no longer out. Lastly, it took over two hours before the general manager came to address me. He just came up with a big smile and tried to apologize. Not once did he offer anything to make the situation better. He didn't offer to take money off of our stay, or give us some comp. Stays for the future. Nothing but a fake smile and no resolve. He couldn't get us our time back and just avoided the situation because I never heard back from him.
