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

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

Terrible. The hotel is one of the worse I have encountered (and I had a few) it is as for extended stay - but there is no kitchen (microwave and a small fridge do not constitute a kitchen) windows, though facing heavy traffic do not have double glazing, and the noise is significant. On top of that the AC is... More

This place is nothing like on the pictures that were on AARP travel center. We got to the the place and it was one where they do rooms by the month. The pool and the spa were closed, got to the room and it was terrible. It was warm and turned on the air conditioner and someone had urinated in... More

My son goes to UCSD and we decided to stay here for two nights for Family Weekend. It was a good deal and thought by saving a few dollars at this hotel we could enjoy other activities in the LaJolla area) ). First of all, I must say the girl at the front desk was polite and very helpful. The... More

Choosing a star rating wasn't easy for this review. In the end, I decided on 3 stars because although this hotel is in a shady area, the courtyard is protected by security doors. Considering how cheap the booking was on hotels.com, I really have nothing to complain about. Yes, they sent us to a single room even though we had... More

We chose this inn for its location. Convenient to the highway and stayed for four nights. It's unusual these days to have to pay additional sum for wifi as most places provide it as an inclusion. It was also pretty slow although it was advertised as high speed. The rooms were cleaned daily and were spotless, cleaning staff are commendable.... More

This is an old hotel with old furnishing. The GFI breaker even tripped when we turned the light switch off in the bathroom. The A/C was struggling and noisy and mounted high on the wall so all the cold air was directed to the ceiling. The room never got very cool but it was tolerable. In order to turn the... More
