Nice basic room, clean, and comfortable beds, friendly staff. Didn't have the pack N play that I requested on the notes at check in, but by the time I reached the room they had already placed it in the room. It looked brand new. We went to Sea World, it was a little farther away than I was hoping, but... More

I had originally scheduled this trip as a weekend getaway for a friend and I to visit our children who live in the area. Due to an unplanned medical procedure scheduled for my son, I had to add an extra day. The staff went out of their way to combine the two reservations so I would not have to move.... More

My wife and I stayed here for three nights while in San Diego and for the most part had a great experience. The hotel is in a business district about 15 minutes North so there isn't much to do around the hotel. We had no issues with traveling to the sites all three days on the weekend. Breakfast is very...

I stayed here for one night. Nice atmosphere. The room was very clean. The Inn is close to the grocery stores and restaurants. It is on the hill, away from the highway, very quiet during the night. The place is not far from San Diego downtown and this would be a good choice for your trip.

This hotel is in a quiet area, room was clean and staff was friendly. Reasonable driving distance to shopping, restaurants and entertainment. Front desk kindly called me when our room was ready since we had arrived in town early that day. Best shower of my vacation - great water pressure and shower head adjustment.
