Overall a nice place to stay except the walls seem to be paper thin. You are definately at the mercy of your neighbors. We had loud kids next door and every morning was a screaming match. Our hotel key only worked once, we had to get it rekeyed multiple times. The staff was very kind and helpful.

Walls were thin .. bring ear plugs and stay on top floor. If you forget your earplugs they DO sell them in the lobby. Eva Kellar was a GREAT hostess as we were having breakfast. Kodo's to her! She, if anything , is what will bring me back. Thank you Eva!!

I recently stayed at the Howard Johnson in the San Diego SeaWorld/airport location and I was pleasantly surprised. I was there for a Marine Corp Recruit Depot graduation and the hotel not only had a free shuttle to and from the airport but also to the depot! We didn't have to rent a car so it definitely saved us money!... More
