Holiday Inn San Diego on the Bay

Look, we know that there are more hip and happening hotels to stay in San Diego than the Holiday Inn. The Holiday Inn brand has been around a long time and has been undergoing a major renovation of its properties and the branding of the company.

The Holiday Inn San Diego on the Bay has something many hotels do not have: location, location, location. This hotel is affordable, close to the airport, Amtrak, shopping, major downtown destinations, the ferry to Coronado, cruise terminals, a few miles from the San Diego Zoo, and RIGHT across the street from the picturesque San Diego harbor and the historic Star of India. It doesn’t get closer than that or better than that.

Like many eco-minded tourists, we like the idea of a car-free visit to San Diego, but our city can present challenges toward that end.  San Diego’s geography, together with the public transit system, can often steal precious time from a visit, whether it is for fun or work. We have found that the Holiday Inn San Diego on the Bay is well-positioned to allow you to visit our city without the need to rent a car and still be able to get around to some of the more notable destinations.

Best of all, the Holiday Inn on the Bay has FREE van shuttles to: the world-famous San Diego Zoo, Horton Plaza, Seaport Village and the San Diego Airport.

Car-Free in San Diego has a partnership with Holiday Inn San Diego on the Bay that allows our readers to take advantage of a Preferred Corporate Rate, now through December 31, 2010, based on availability.

Please keep in mind that the location of this hotel and its affordability will cause a run on bookings. If the rate appeals to you, book the room ASAP. You can always cancel within the parameters of the cancellation policy.

In addition to its central location, the Holiday Inn on the Bay offers:

  • Newly renovated deluxe rooms (600 rooms)
  • Free Wi-Fi in every room
  • Free airport shuttle – 1.2 mile distance
