Just off the Freeway the hotel is easy to find and has ample parking, some covered, but all at $8.00 a night. The room was clean and well decorated, with fridge, microwave and tea and coffee facilities. Beds very comfortable, and no external noise at night. The rooms open out onto the walkway which for me is a negative, but... More

Stayed for two nights. The location is good if you have a car. There is a mall close by. A lot of restaurants close by. The hotel was clean and plenty of parking. The breakfast area was good. It had waffles and bagels. The hotel is an outside entry room type. So you will have to be comfortable with that.

In a nutshell: We have already made reservations at this hotel for our next visit to San Diego in March-April... From the moment we arrived until the moment we departed five days later each and every member of the staff made us feel like the only reason they had come to work that day was to make our stay enjoyable......

My family and I needed a place to stay while our home was being renovated and I must say this hotel turned out to be quite nice. The location alone is awesome, the hotel site is very well manicured and clean, pool and jacuzzi are fantastic, plenty of parking and free breakfast! Ok I do have to say, they do... More

Had to move to San Diego for work and stayed here for about a week. Brandon and Phoenix are the friendliest and helpful people I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. They went above and beyond to help us with our paperwork and were very accommodating. The hotel is clean, and central located. I would definitely stay there... More

Nothing special, but just what we expected. Exactly the location in San Diego where we wanted to be. We looking to be near Sea World and the Zoo and this met our expectations. Clean rooms and breakfast was all that we needed. Staff was good to work with.

Wonderful stay in a relatively convenient location (we did have a car so location was not a huge concern). Less than 20 minutes to Balboa Park and San Diego Zoo. Pool and hot tub, and delicious breakfast with a variety of selections (waffles, yogurt, bread, muffins, bagels, fruit, oatmeal, coffee/tea, etc.). Staff was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay... More

Old property that needs updating. Beds are worn out. Found a cockroach in one of the rooms. Breakfast is small for the number of people that it is designed to serve and the breakfast quality is average. Room had a cracked sink and scarce toiletries.

Just a average LQ; variety of food is ok but nothing special; very noisy on the balconies outside your room when people stand out there smoking and talking at 6 AM and 10 PM at night. Staff was pleasant

The hotel is smoke free which I love. The rooms are clean and a decent size. It's perfect for a weekend getaway to San Diego which is a2 hour drive from where we live in Burbank. The price is right also, not too expensive. Thank You.
