Stayed in two 2 bedroom suites a plus is that these rooms have 2 bathrooms making it easy for a small group of family. Breakfast was all as expected with warm breakfast items, not just danishes, juice and coffee. Lobby also had a pool table area to hang out. We stayed here after visiting the wild animal park in Escondido,... More

Stayed here while attending an wedding at a nearby venue. Good points: Solid hot breakfast Friendly and helpful staff Well appointed, clean rooms Well situated, near many restaurants and shopping plazas Probably not the best hotel for a visit to San Diego proper but great for visiting safari park, carlsbad, encinitas etc.

Linda was amazing.... More

Had reserved and confirmed a disabled accessible room, but when I checked in was told that no accessible rooms were available. Although given a discount on my room rate, this did not make up for the inconvenience.

During the dates or your travel our hotel was completely sold out which makes it a bit challenging at times to accommodate the request of every guest. The studio suite in which you originally reserved unfortunately does not feature a roll in... More
