OUTSATNDING PLACE TO STAY!! Dora & David at the front desk are the ultimate in hospitality. They always have a smile and happy to see you along with helping you in any way that they can. The rooms were always clean and at any time you passed an employee they said hello with a smile and would always open doors... More

We booked our Hotel online for our honeymoon. When we got there the front desk was fantastic, very attentive and professional. When we got to our room we noticed that the swing lock was broken in half. While we were down to dinner the maintenance staff had it fixed in minutes.. pretty impressive. The front desk, at all times, no... More

This hotel is in a great location with easy access to the freeway and great views from the upper floors. Unfortunately staying on the freeway side of the hotel can be noisy. My family had two rooms, one on each side of the hotel. Everyone reported a great night's sleep. The property needs renovations but you can't complain too much... More

My family and I stayed here 3 nights while in the San Diego area. The hotel is in a good location, with easy access to the freeway and close to Seaworld and San Diego Zoo. We were on the 7th floor with a beautiful view of the bay. The room was clean and cozy. The beds were very comfortable. The... More

We were coming to town for San Diego Comic Con and found this hotel online months before by accident. We booked it and signed up for there Choice Program. It was easy to find since it is the tallest hotel in in the area and has blue lights on the outside. It was across the street from a gas station... More

Clean and comfortable room! Easy access to highway, convenient access to convenience store, short walk to MTS transportation hub and local restaurants. Friendly, courteous and helpful staff. The checkin bag was a nice touch! Nice hotel for our visit!

The property is a little rundown due to age. Could use some renovation. The service by the front desk personnel makes up for some of the deficiency. The sink clogged and had to call for service and the remote control for the TV could not be located

This place is an acceptable place to sleep and get ready, if your going to be gone most of the day. The room had this smell kind of like an antique store I assume because the building is old. Its noisy at night, in the room we were in you could see sun light coming in from under the door.... More

The room key has never worked – have to go to the lobby every day to get access to my room; their "non-smoking" rooms reek of smoke and drugs; the sink was plugged up for two days; there was never any shampoo in the room and it took two requests to get some. The place is a dump. It's a... More
