I'm not too very happy with a few things. But most importantly I was told by an employee that there was a laundry facility in this hotel (traveling on a 2 week road trip I definitely need it). Just now I go to exchange quarters, ($5 worth!) to use the machines and the man at the front desk let me.... More

I liked that the room is large and the beds were comfortable and we got a GREAT deal by reserving early online (more than half off!). The breakfast included many prepackaged items and fresh fruit so if you wanted to sleep a little later the next day you could bring them back to your room for the next day. The... More

Thank you very much for staying with us. We regret that your stay was anything short of exemplary. As you noticed, our property is split between the basic room and our enhanced Business Place rooms. In addition to having a balcony, the Business Place rooms offer an enhanced workspace, in-room snacks/water, etc. Otherwise, we are glad that you found the... More

Very friendly, helpful staff. The rooms were clean, the bed was comfortable, the water was hot. I would say the only draw back is the ever growing number of homeless people hanging out in the area. I wasn't comfortable walking around at night. To fix that we ordered delivery and avoided being outside.

Arival was handled well . Basic good comforts are available but the physical appearance is poor needs a serious makeover / paint job

Thank you very much for staying with us, and for sharing your thoughts. Like all "more seasoned" properties, renovations are on-going. For the most part, we have focused our attention on the things that travelers care about most, a comfortable bed, upgraded towels and linens, etc. Other cosmetic repairs are also underway, such as repainting the floors. As you can... More

Really struggling to say anything bad about this hotel, which says it all! It was perfect for what we needed - good sized rooms, good condition and decoration. Nice pool area, plenty of parking. Great location, not far from the USS Midway and Little Italy area of Sand Diego, and only a short taxi ride to the Downtown/Gaslamp area. My... More

My family and I booked a room here just for one night before heading to Legoland. It was the best price based on reviews and all I really wanted was a place to go to after 5+ hours of driving and some time at the beach. Pros: The free breakfast was plentiful and the eating area was nice and clean,... More

The room was basically fine and clean though it shows its age. Water was hot, wifi worked wonderful. It's a 25 minute walk to the waterfront, 20 minutes to the bar area. The zoo is close by but it's still a 40 minute walk away. The donut bar is very close and worth a visit if you like sweets. The... More
