The room has dirty carpet, hair in the bathroom sink (lots of it) and hair in the shower. The linens appeared to be clean; loud window air conditioner. I'm kind of mad my company would consider this property for a business trip - well you get what you pay for it was cheap and poorly maintained, shameful really.

This hotel gave us good value for the money, considering the convenient location to all the San Diego tourist attractions. The room was clean and comfortable, although the A/C was a little on the loud side, and we had to struggle a bit to get the room to stay a comfortable temperature all night. Parking was $10/day, but almost all... More

Took grand kids to Seaworld and Zoo. Planned on 2 day stay, added 1 more day. Close to many nice places to eat and Staff was Great. The beds in our room need new mattresses. And the $10.00 a night parking fee was a disappointment.

We booked a 2 room family suite which was spacious and comfortable. There was a bunkbed in one room and a king in the other. The regular rooms are also comfortable and clean, but not large. Check in was all business. Not particularly welcoming but not unpleasant either. Check out was very friendly. If you have a car, it is... More

I will keep this one short. The room was in a sad state, white linens do not cover up an extremely worn uncomfortable bed. Ac was extremely loud and did not adequately cool the room. The shower was extremely hard to turn on and off resulting in leaking water constantly, 1 shampoo was given for a 3 day stay for... More

Front desk staff was very friendly. When we walked into our room it had bunk beds and a safari mural on one wall. It had a small "kitchen" area with a refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and small sink. There was another room with a king bed and bathroom. The bed was comfortable. The bedroom and bathroom were small. Having the... More

The front desk staff is very nice and helpful. The room was clean. The breakfast was just cold food and waffles nothing special. The pool and hot tub area was crowded and kinda gross looking. Parking does cost and the spots are very small.

I regret checking in here for 2 nights. At $129 a night before taxes, I never expected to have to pay an additional $10 a night for parking in the cramped lot. Just a way to squeeze more money out of the guests. The room was tiny, the beds sagged, and the "free internet" was so overburdened, I had to... More
