This was my first time staying here and I was very impressed. My room was very clean, comfortable, and well-appointed. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I will definitely be back. The only problem I had was that the parking spaces were way too narrow.

This was such a wonderful hotel for our family of five. We had so much rooms and although we didn't use the kitchen facilities, they were wonderful for those who would need to use them. The location was perfect for our family, close to bus stops, shopping, restaurants and balboa park. I was very impressed with the customer service. Luis... More

Last-minute need for a Thanksgiving night stay near our niece's house. We couldn't have been more pleased with the "bang for our buck!" Room was clean, beds were comfortable, and the only tiny downside was traffic noise. Closing the window fixed that!

Our family enjoyed this motel very much on our recent trip to San Diego. It is conveniently located between the Zoo and Sea World. The staff was very helpful and assisting us with take out and delivery menus as well as providing a crib for the baby to sleep in. I would highly recommend this motel.

For my family and extended families, it is well settled that Sommerset Suites is clearly the best bargain in San Diego. After numerous prolonged stays in the Hillcrest section of the city, we find that Sommerset is absolutely in a class by itself. Other hotels give fine service, and pricier establishments have excellent features. But top to bottom, we don't... More

Modern. Clean. Attentive service. Perfect location as a "home base". I will be back. Many restaurants and movie theatre a block away. Good and plentiful free continental breakfast monitored by a very dedicated staff.

I was relocated from another hotel who had to cancel my reservation at 11 pm at night, after a long work day.

A one minute walk to restaurants and shopping. A few minutes drive to the zoo and Balboa Park. Ten minutes drive to Sea World. I'm glad I chose this hotel. The room was massive!
