If you are looking for a place to stay, sleep, and take a shower, this is your place. I believe the nightly rate is too high for what you get. The tv is the only modern aspect of the room. The decor is outdated and needs an upgrade. There is a gap under the door you could probably slide a... More

We were two guys attending a conference in the Hotel and everything was as good as it could be. Nice room, clean, quite, comfortable. The staff is very good, particularly David, who went the extra yards to help me with a telephone problem that was not even a hotel problem, it was my cell phone. He took his valuable time... More

Hotel was a little old, could have you too little upkeep. The pool was really nice. The hot tub was nice. The rooms were clean. The staff was really nice. We would definitely go here again. It is in a nice section of town with lots of things to do

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
