I had a comfortable stay here. Room had more features than I thought it would have, such as the microwave and fridge. People complain about planes flying over and making loud noises since the inn is a bit close to the airport, but I only heard one plane during the course of my stay, and it didn't bother me. I...

I was there for a few days and I mean a few days like 4 weeks. The first day I could not sleep cause the mine refrigerator was making loud noise. The water was never hot enough and half electric outlets were not working. I was suggested to move to another room and I said why don't we just exchange... More

I booked this hotel for two nights, one on either side of an overseas trip, since I live more than two hours from the San Diego Airport. With each paid night, a guest can leave a car parked for 7 nights, so I was able to leave my car for two weeks without additional charge. The hotel's airport shuttle departs... More

Our stay was problem free. Everyone and anyone we encountered was so friendly. Check in, housekeeping and the breakfast attendant. The only possible issue could be parking and the thin walls on ground level. I would stay here again.

I can't understand all the great reviews on this place. Maybe most reviewers are more tolerant than I am. We chose this place based on location and offered amenities. We pulled in late evening after driving all day. There was 1 tight parking spot available. The street around the building was full. Turns out they allow park and fly. Which... More

They were very helpful and accommodating to everything we needed. We had a group coming in at different times and needing different shuttles through out our stay and they were very conscientious about our needs and making sure we were taken care of. Dobri was terrific and even remembered my name the next day without looking it up. They let... More
