This hotel was a good value. It is situated between Sea World, San Diego Zoo, and the San Diego Safari Zoo. The room included a refrigerator, high-speed internet, hot breakfast, laundry facilities, parking, and pool. If you visit here, be sure to walk the pier behind the hotel to fully enjoy the view of the ocean and fishing boats.

The reception staff were exceptionally helpful. The room was clean but probably the worst Comfort Inn we have stayed in as looking very tired. Breakfast not articulately good. Location not too bad. We travelled into the old town by local bus which was easy as it went straight along the main road at the top of the road

Everything went nice and smooth. For my first time using a travel app I was worrying that something was going to go wrong but nothing did. It was a nice trip with pretty much no problems and I would be glad to use this again.

If you are staying here, I guess there are two types of rooms available which we experienced. One is a decent size but the other is very small and crowded. The larger room has a table with two nice arm chairs - the smaller has a desk with rolling chair. The showers are tiny - cruise ships have bigger showers!... More

We have stayed at a number of Comfort Inns and have always found them to be excellent value, clean and comfortable. It was a bit disappointing to find this hotel was not the same. Our room was smaller than normal and was really noisy, with traffic outside waking us before 6am. Bed not as comfy as normal in Comfort Inns... More

The room we stayed in was very clean. Everything in the room was updated. We had a nice view of the pool. The room was very spacious with a couch, dresser, and desk.

I stay a Comfort Inns all the time, and found it hard to believe that this property would qualify as a Comfort Inn. Truly at the bottom of the scale. Paper thin wall with no sound deadening. Listened to coughing next door all night long. Most RV's have a larger bathroom and showers. The breakfast room was way too small,... More

Stayed 1 night. The room size is bigger than normal. Mini fridge is very nice. Room feels old. It's time to upgrade. Location is close to harbor. But our visit did not involve using the harbor. If I go to San Diego again, I'd probably choose somewhere else.

For the price it can't be beat. This hotel is at a great location between downtown and mission beach while being a lot less than hotels closer to downtown.
