I checked in on a Thursday evening and the night manager was very friendly. She saw me for the next 2 evenings and inquired about my grandma each evening. She was the reason I was visiting. Rooms were clean and updated. Free breakfast was good with lots of options. Hotel is conveniently located right off the highway with restaurants and... More

4/24/2015. OK....so you may have given your guests a heads up that you were currently under renovation...we call that common courtesy where I grew up, but I guess your running a business and you don't want to loose money. So we get there at 1800 just as the workers were done for the day...we lucked out! Not so lucky with... More

Good stay at a fair price. 3 nights while in town visiting family on vacation. Clean and quiet. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is good. 8 year old son loved the pancake machine. There are shared facilities such as pool, hot tub, laundry, and parking with hotel next-door. This property much better than that one.

A good hotel with very friendly staff and good service. My only to concerns are the location to down town and to public transport to get there. The MTS system is excellent and cheap but you have a long trek to the nearest bus stop.

Pretty much your prototypical HIE. I've been to many of them as I travel full time doing business, and this one has all the amenities that you expect in a HIE, but just older-looking rooms. I was here for just one night and checked in late, and was busy working all night, so I didn't get a chance to check... More

I stayed at this HIE while in San Diego in October 2014. The Staff was friendly and the room was in good shape. Breakfast was hot which was a plus. Parking in front of the hotel is shared with another motel, so, you may have to park behind the building if the front is crowded. Food options all over the... More
