They don't have cameras and the... More

Rooms aren't bad. They are clean and hotel is pretty quiet. There is a fridge and microwave in each room but no coffee pot. We figured it would be ok and we could get coffee with breakfast. Breakfast bar consisted of Cheerios, multigrain Cheerios, bagels, bananas, oranges and instant maxwell house. Stay here but don't expect the ritz and bring... More

Stayed here for our fun trip to the San Diego area. Will stay here again in the future. The price was great the beds comfortable and clean. The hotel is a little older but still a great place. The staff is awesome. The breakfast is light but does the job.

I booked this hotel through another online company that told me the room had two beds but when I get there it only had one. Luckily the receptionist was very helpful and found a two bed room at no extra charge. Nice room and the kids loved the pool and spa so we had a very pleasant stay. It's well... More

The people at the hotel made our experience what it was. My husband and I drove all night to be at a car convention. Check in time was 3pm. My husband explained our extreme lack of sleep, they said sorry our room was not ready (it was only 10:45am) but we could change and lay by the pool while they... More

Found this hotel online and I' m very happy I did. The staff was very pleasant and helpful, especially Rod at the front desk. The things that are important to me when I travel are cleanliness, security, quiet and location. My room had new carpet and was very clean, key entry to the complex in the evening gave peace of...

I can't believe all the good reviews and pictures on this hotel, when we passed in mid-july the fountain was merely a bassin of dirty water, with no fountain, where fishes looked like they were dying in that dirty. Area is sketchy, complicated to get to the room if you arrive late (they will explain you need to find a... More

This place was ok a few years ago when we went, but it's gone downhill fast. The grounds are nice, lots of beautiful trees and plants and a fish pond. That's where it stops being nice. The room was NOT ready at 3PM as promised, and to that I was told "Check in STARTS at 3 but a room isn't... More

My children and I stayed for 4 days. The staff was very polite, the room was clean and the price was right. The pool was clean as was the courtyard. The location was great plenty of nearby restaurants and only 15-20 minutes to any beach. Will definitely return.
