We chose to stay here for the size of the room. We stayed in a one bedroom suite so we had a pull-out sofa that was reported to be very comfortable. Upon arrival, there is a slight smell probably resulting from the carpets in the hallways being subject to the open air. The doors to the rooms face outward, but... More

The location is excellent, not part of the mass of hotels in hotel circle, Close to everything. While staying there we visited Downtown several times, Seaworld, Mission Viejo, and Oceanside, I can not imagine a better location. We had 6 of us so the 2 room suite was a little tight but doable, given the price it was GREAT. Many... More

I have stayed at this hotel for 5 out of my 7 stays in San Diego. The location is fantastic with all Hillcrest has to offer right out the front door. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. A clean and convenient place to stay. Will definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

This is the best place to stay if you want to be in the Hillcrest area. Balboa Park is walking distance (maybe 15 minutes) and downtown is a short drive. The rooms are huge, and the whole place is very clean. The decor is a bit dated, but the place still has a very pleasant feel. The courtyard pool and... More

We went to San Diego for my sister's wedding and decided to make a family vacation out of it. With four kids (3 teenagers), I struggled to find a hotel that would accommodate all of us! I booked Sommerset Suites with some disappointment that it looked like an older hotel and was further from the beaches that I wanted to... More

The hotel location is great, right in Hillcrest; near Balboa Park, San Diego zoo, downtown Gaslamp and the beach is a short drive, but the staff make this even better. The room was nice and comfortable, clean and very spacious. All of the staff were so nice and helpful.

Our family just came back from a 3 night stay and were extremely pleased with the hotel. We were visiting my oldest son in Hillcrest and chose this hotel from looking on the internet. I called the front desk to check on a few things ahead of our trip and talked to Ian a couple of times. He was extremely... More

We spent several nights at this apartment/hotel, and found it to be impressive in many ways. Our 1-bedroom apartment was spacious, including a fully-equipped modern kitchen, large pantry, living room, dining area, large patio, separate bedroom and bath. The rate was quite reasonable for San Diego, and we found the Hillcrest neighborhood to be a great area for walking, restaurants... More

David F If you're staying in the Hillcrest area of San Diego, this is the place. Great value and perfect location. We have stayed here before and have had friends check in as well for the weekend. The staff is friendly and helpful. We will be coming back again.

We initially chose to stay here purely for convenience but it's really also pretty good value. The staff are pleasant and helpful, the pool is clean, the landscaping well maintained and the rooms comfy and well appointed. I've stayed twice now, and I'll be going back next time I'm in San Diego. It's 10 minutes from the airport (depending on... More
