Yes the hotel is new and nice but front desk staff need to work on their customer service..

Stayed here for 6 nights recently; on arrival they saw we had kids so changed our room to a family room, with separate bunk beds for the kids, which worked really well for us. The room was clean and comfortable, if a tad small, but suited our needs well. The hotel is not in the centre of town but by...

We booked the Holiday Inn-Bayside for two nights but had to cancel one night at the last minute. They were very gracious about it despite the fact they had a full house. We arrived the next night and admittedly, we picked the hotel for the free airport shuttle (five minute ride to the terminal) because we had to leave at...

After trying (unsuccessfully) to get from Atlanta to Los Angeles, we ended up in San Diego with no place to stay. It was late and we were tired. After calling many hotels, we finally found one room left at this hotel. The room was called the Zoo Room. It had one queen bed and a set of bunk beds, with...

We stayed two nights at this hotel in a room the front desk agent called "our cheap rooms" and that was a pretty accurate description. This property is a combination of a new building and the "cheap rooms" and we had the latter for two nights. Rooms are expensive here and the only good thing about our room was a...

I booked this quickly at the last minute and should have done more homework. The property is spread across three separate buildings but the online listing shows a picture of a nice updated Holiday inn facility, which does exist but not necessarily what you will get. I booked a room that was labeled "economy" but still about 200 bucks. Well...
