I have stayed at this hotel many times when flying out of San Diego International airport. The hotel itself has all the basic amenities (refrigerator, microwave, breakfast buffet, WiFi, etc.), and it also offers 7 nights free parking with each room rental.

I received excellent customer service and accommodations from the staff. They went above and beyond in making sure my stay was easy and comfortable and answered all questions I had and arranged all shuttle services asap. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the complimentary breakfast got the day off to a great start.

We wanted to stay in San Diego on budget and chose the Howard Johnson Sea World. The hotel is located pretty much in the middle of the city so that it is a short 15 minute drive to the beach or to downtown. It is a good location if you want to do things in different parts of the city... More
