4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

After driving the Baja from CSL found my favorite SD hotels booked solid...due to comic con convention... Chanced upon this hotel and scored a room. After a pleasant nights rest and a better breakfast than a local M, we spent two more days there. First stay will not be the last.

If you are looking for a reasonably priced hotel that includes free parking, breakfast with hot and cold items, wifi, in-room fridge, coffee maker (though we did not use) pool/jacuzzi (didn't use) and close proximity to Sea World, this is a great option. Since we are in our room only to sleep, we prefer to spend our money on sight-... More

A family gathering for a beach wedding. Some stayed at the Best Western on Pacific Beach, while some of us chose the less expensive hotel on Claremont. As requested our rooms were all together. The staff was friendly, parking was adequate, breakfast was well stocked and kept shocked during the busy breakfast hours.

We visit San Diego once a year and this was our 1st time to stay at this hotel. It is now my hotel of choice when going to San Diego. Staff was very nice. The rooms was super clean. The breakfast was good. The only thing that we noticed (didn't really bother us) was that the bathroom was very small.... More

The hotel was average at best, but the only place the internet worked was in the lobby. I complained every morning as I sat in the lobby downloading email, but to no avail. Finally ended up checking out early. Clearly not a hotel for business purposes.

Stayed here one night while looking at colleges with my daughter. San Diego is an expensive market so the price is a lot for an older motel. However, it was nicely decorated, clean, and comfortable. The location is close to Sea World, Mission Bay, Pacific Beach, etc. It is right off the 5 freeway and on a busy street but... More

bed were firm but location and price couldn't be any better. The breakfast was great. This is a family orientated hotel. Very noisey due to all the small children having a great time. If you know this when you make your reservation then you will be fine. The noise level definitely went down by 11pm.
