Room was nice, although it did have a strong cigarette odor. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was average - could have been better.

Our stay in San Diego CA as great! The room was conveniently close to restaurants, near freeway access, but most importantly it was clean & quiet. Comfy beds, too. The front desk staff was very welcoming & pointed out places of interest. Would definitely stay there again.

This was a decent place. The room was clean and comfortable, and the location was convenient to the freeway. I was disappointed with the bedding, which was clean but not very soft.

My room was spacious, clean, updated and attractive. There was a sitting area with a small sofa, desk, refrigerator nice flat screen TV, etc. Everything appeared newer and in good working order. The bathroom was spotless and well stocked with toiletry items. The bed was pretty firm for my taste, but I think I like a softer bed than most... More

My first trip to cailfornia and my indoctrination was a ho hum hotel room for $150 a night. I should have received a massage for that price. The staff was exceptionally friendly Kudos to them. There is no reason a hotel with virtually no amenities should get that much a night unless they're on the beach

Our first room had Nats everywhere and the second one had a trick to the air conditioner. The bed was also so uncomfortable that I couldn't sleep and spent several days with a sore back.
