We had a great stay at this location. From a friendly welcome at check-in, to the free breakfast (hot items, a waffle station, fresh fruit, cereals, etc). The room had both a bar fridge and microwave. This was especially important as our 2yr old almost solely exists on a warm milk drink. The rest of the room was relatively standard... More

A really nice hotel with nice breakfast and good rooms. The location isn't ideal for going to downtown San Diego but if you are doing something in this area I would definitely recommend this place. Ideal for business trips in the area, which is a business area so it's not buzzing on the weekends. I forgot two dressshirts in the... More

My wife and I, along with our 3 kids stayed her for 5 night during spring break. The building itself is not new, but the rooms are clean and include the usual amenities. The hotel has a coin-operated laundry room which we used in order to have enough clean clothes. There are 2 washers and 2 dryers, the dryers needs... More

We got a pretty good deal. $111 plus taxes for a double queen room on a holiday weekend. Location is decent, a 20 minute trip down the freeway to Balboa Park or Downtown San Diego or 15 minutes across to the coast. The rooms were clean and nice, nice area. It felt more like a business hotel but there were... More

This hotel is ~ 15 to 20 minutes away from Zoo and Sea World. But, quality of this place is so high that I cannot compare it to any hotel on 'hotel circle'. It is extremely clean and quiet. Room looks new and well decorated. Parking area is large and parking - free. Breakfast was nice too, and my kids... More
