easy check in, easy parking. Breakfast is minimal so do not count on it for more than a quick bite. Rooms have refrig and microwave. Clean and neat, quiet. Small outdoor pool.

I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the room was. I was a little worried when I first pulled up since the outside was not to appealing. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the rooms were very clean and comfortable.

To save you the long story I'll try to make this short. Me and four of my friends stayed here a week ago as part of a larger group from touring the San Diego State University and San Diego University. Despite the small terrain, the area was kept very tidy and organized especially our room. I am not familiar with... More
