Great service, provided us an upgrade at check in. Convenient to Sea World, Old town. Price was pretty reasonable too. I'd recommend for families on a budget and those looking to be close to the major attractions of San Diego.

I am used to staying @ the Doubletree or the Handlery Inn; so I was a little bit thrown off when I arrived, because of the outside looked like a motel. There were people outside smoking hanging out in the parking lot. Once I got into the suite, I was pleasantly surprised. Room was clea, A/C was ice cold, flat... More

Great price. clean spacious rooms . Jacuzzi needs to be redone, It's too small. But pool was nice. And free breakfast was simple and good. Parking was a bit hard due to nearby construction but they did offer parking at a next door overflow lot. Front desk was also attentive and very polite.

Very convenient location to Old Town, Fashion Valley and Mission Valley shopping malls, and going downtown. Biggest virtue is free parking although space is limited due to construction of Holiday Inn at the back. If you return late in the evening, you'll have to park in the construction lot next door. Room was fairly clean; wall by bathroom grimy when... More

I'm not aware where some of the other people here stayed in the past, but I was very pleased. At first glance I'll admit it's not much, but for the price it was good for me. The room was modern decorated. The young man at the front was Steven. I arrived late and this was one of the only places... More

Good price value. Disappointing stay. The price was pretty descent. I expected more after seeing good reviews. The staff was helpful and friendly for check-in and check out. The room was spacious for a family of four. However, the pool area was small, the wifi was awful and there was no point in bringing my laptop. There is a staff... More

Room was small and sparsely furnished but clean enough and adequate. If you want a good cheap location this is it. No frills, polite staff but this is not The Ritz. I would stay here again if I were on a budget. walls were a bit thin you could hear the room next door well!

The room was just fine, roomy and comfortable. The staff was helpful and friendly. The breakfast was poor. Only waffles and cold cereal for breakfast. No eggs, no sweet rolls, no yogurt, not even toast was available. Plus, there was no breakfast room; only a couple of tables by the pool, and no place at all to sit when it... More

About what I expected for the price but not up to typical Vagabond standards. Starting with the front desk, they were courteous and check-in went smooth and quickly. There is some construction going on behind the hotel and it would have been nice to have been informed that parking would be restricted during our stay. There was a large notice... More
