Clean room, breakfast was a joke. Nasty old cold hard boiled eggs.. no eggs, bacon or sausage. Only one place to get ice.

This was a nice quiet place near the bus and trolley center that was easy to get around without a car. Rooms were clean beds comfy. The breakfast was adequate and they have free airport shuttles There are restaurants in easy walking distance too.

109 rooms and parking for 70 vehicles. Good luck with parking. Breakfasts are nothing to write home about. Mainly bread and pastries with sugar coated cereal and boiled eggs. It would be nice if they had creamers for your coffee that weren't flavoured. I inquired about them and was told that the homeless people that stay there, take them all,... More

The AM staff was friendly and helpful. The room was adequate for sleeping. With the fridge that did not work, the water that did not get hot or turn off after turning on, WiFi that never connected, the wake up call that did not come, and the airport shuttle that did not arrive, we will not be returning to this...

Well it could have been worse I guess. For the most part it was clean. The coffee maker had standing water in it and was dirty. He said I "had to take a taxi". I told him I wasn't in the mood and then he left me alone. We had no pillow cases on our pillows which is kind of... More

While the property was not quite what we had envisioned from online pictures (a little more run down than expected), the staff was more than helpful and we could easily get to places in San Diego from the hotel (Old Town, the San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld, etc.). The hotel was clean and the food was fine.
