This hotel was exactly what I needed during a brief one night stay before driving south into Mexico. The staff was professional and flexible with a few requests I had. The room was spacious, clean and Pet friendly, which was important to me. Having an in room refrigerator was a nice feature, too.The grounds are nicely maintained, and safe for... More

Stayed here for business and enjoyed the entire trip. The staff, location, having an eatery next store, service, cleanliness, and over decor will have me staying here again when I return if it is available. They have a small workout center on site, pool, nice meeting areas, and can easily access the highway and other main streets to get to... More

I had a 3 night stay December 2014 for a nearby wedding. Hotel was a very pleasant surprise as it was very clean, comfortable, quiet, and spacious. It was much closer to the Circle 8 and Old Town area than I imagined; there was major shopping nearby; a great breakfast restaurant 1.8 miles away (a pancake family place); and although... More

I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else while in San Diego for business, unless this hotel was full...maybe if it was free to stay somewhere else but it would be a hard decision. Everyone is great, the rooms are nice, and it's convenient to where I'm working.

My family was visiting San Diego for my mother in laws retirement luncheon. We were staying at there house and was just too crowded. My mother in law had told us about this newly remodeled hotel so when I went on line it looked good. Its minutes from the gas lamp/downtown. Good food at the lounge/café in the same parking... More

Hotel was very clean and modern and the staff was friendly and helpful. Location was perfect for all area attractions and restaurants were nearby as well. Rooms were spacious and updated. The grounds were clean and well maintained.

No point in paying the inflated prices and parking fees of a San Diego hotel. This facility has easy access from the highway (but remember to take Exit 10), and you dont have to take your car to town: the trolley stops two blocks away and leaves you in front of the Convention Center. Great facility, modern and clean, friendly... More

Stayed there recently for 7 nights. The hotel is located just off the highway so it is easily accessible. It sits adjacent to the US Navy yard from which you can hear the Star Spangled Banner each morning at 8:00 sharp. The entire staff that I had any dealings with were very friendly and always willing to go out of... More

I was in San Diego and wanted to stay downtown but parking rates were ridiculous for those hotels that even provided parking. So I stayed in National City and this couldn't have been a better experience! The staff was great and the hotel nice and clean.

Hotel staff were friendly and accommodating. Room was clean with no odour. Towels were a bit rough .Overall it was a very pleasant experience. Fully recommended. It is a fairly new hotel and well located near the highway minutes away from services. Close to downtown San Diego, The zoo, and a ride to Sea world.
