The outside of the hotel was pretty. The rooms themselves were unimpressive, clean, but nothing that you're going to write home about. Having a kitchenette was nice, although we didn't wind up using it. And there were no cups, bowls, or cooking utensils, so we would have had to go buy them if we wanted to use it. The showerheads...

The hotel is comfortable to stay, the room was comfortable but dated. Pros: It was clean and fit into my budget for an overnight stay while transiting thru San Diego. Comfortable stay, the room was clean and spacious. Included a walk-in closet. Eating options right next doors, not many but had a vegie place which suited me. Very close to... More

Reserved this hotel because the reviews seemed decent, the price was good and it had secured parking, continental breakfast and free wi-fi. We reserved 4 rooms originally and then canceled 1 due to some of our party not attending, I canceled the 4th room a week in advance, but when i called the day of to see if we could... More

I stayed at California Suites Hotel for 4 months (February – May 2015). I really enjoyed my stay there. You cannot find such an Extended Stay Hotel with this kind of price in the San Diego area. I have a kitchenette with 2 burners which I can cook. The A/C, heater, all the lightings, water pressure – everything works perfectly.... More

Loved the hotel & staff. The price fit our budget. Free wifi, gated, and clean with pretty courtyard. If you are from rich upper class and cheap, don't expect to be catered to, you'll just complain and give bad reviews which isn't fair to this hotel. It's a great place for families on a budget who respect staff and know... More

This was our Sea World Trip for our family of 8. So I decided to get 2 rooms at a budget hotel to keep the cost down. The rooms were very small and basic, but clean. The pics on booking.com and the other sites too, looked like they may have been taken 10+ years ago. The staff was friendly, the... More

Stayed five days over the Memorial Day weekend and was pleased with the accommodations. This was the least expensive option in the area with comparable amenities. The breakfast was minimal, but in line with the cost. Hot tub was the big draw for me ( an old fellow who still plays baseball) and it was as good as any I... More

I suppose it depends how much time you plan to spend in the hotel room. I was very pleased with the great customer service, friendly staff, clean room, well kept bathroom, microwave and fridge. I felt very safe as the property is gated, key entry only. Also they ask you to include your car license plate and description and they... More

So we turn up at hotel having booked a room for three with a kitchen now the clue is in the booking 3 people and kitchen. So room one double bed and... More

In town with the kids for Spring Break in early April, and being that this was the cheapest hotel in the area and we needed two rooms for our five kids, we took a chance and were mostly glad we did. (For a similar three-night stay at a beach hotel we probably would have paid $200 more.) But you get... More
