It was the cheapest inn we stayed in our 2 weeks in California, and it is considered the best by my 9 years old daughter who liked its homely environment and nice breakfast. I like the price, the quiet atmosphere and the proximity to both Seaworld and downtown. Would be even better if in-room safety box is provided.

Easy to find and situated close to the airport. Across the road from the rail system so very easy to travel into San Diego shopping and restaurant areas etc. Walking distance to the old town area. Large rooms and very clean, separate bathroom and another vanity dressing area which was very handy. We were on the ground floor under the... More

We recently stayed at this marvellous Inn on 2 occasions during a recent holiday to the USA. The hotel is ideally situated near the Old Town and the transport hub. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very well appointed and clean. The daily included breakfast was a great way to start the day. The gardens are... More

We were travelling as a group of 10 so price means something. I'm sure there are nicer places to stay but not at this price point. We had 3 rooms and all were clean. Staff always said hello and smiled and it was obvious the actually care. Felt like a family run business. The pool was always spotless. Breakfast was... More

We stayed at an economy 2 full beds room last week, Thursday. The customer service at the front desk is great, very courteous staff. The lobby area is very cozy and welcoming. The parking was a challenge because it was pretty much full yet I was able to find a space in the back. My first impression once inside the... More

We chose this hotel because of the great reviews! Overall we had a great experience and will be returning as soon as we can. One issue we had was that the person at the front desk couldn't make any changes without a manager. The first room we were assigned was right next to the driveway. This made me feel uncomfortable...

As we drove to the hotel, I didn't think I would like the location it was a bit seedy however as we pulled in it completely surprised me. It's a little tucked in hideaway not too big not too small just right. Check in was nice and easy very clean, people were nice. Extended Continental breakfast was great kid friendly.... More
