Just finished a six night stay at this property; the photos don't reflect how great this property is. Located a heartbeat from the I-805, and an easy hop to I-5, my wife and I chose this location as an economic alternative to an expensive downtown San Diego hotel during a conference. Brenda and Miriam were gems - we didn't have... More

There is a Chinese restaurant next door, and a pancake house restaurant across the street with great food. The location... More
