I added this hotel on for the final night of a long vacation. It is easily accessible from downtown San Diego, just a short drive on the freeway. There's plenty of parking. Upon checking in, I found my room was massive and clean as could be. The bed was super comfortable. It's a large property but was quiet, even though... More

In general, it was a pleasing experience to spend a night in this hotel. The hotel and the room are very clean. Everything works. Internet is fast. The bed and pillows are comfortable. There are few plazas near by with many small but good restaurants if you need to save on food. Be aware of the outside noise from the... More

The location is convenient and for me, better than the hotel circle hotels because of all the homeless over there. Our room was large and quiet and very clean. The parking is a little cramped and the pool location is not too good-it's overlooking the street and the strip mall next door. It's also within walking distance to Starbucks, Einstein... More

The outside of the hotel looked great when pulling up. But parking was a challenge - the spots are extremely small. Sure to leave door dings and many cars took up more than one space. Check-in was good, but then I had to go back out to put a "pass" on the car? Not sure the need for this? The... More
