Clean comfortable rooms, quiet location, the best "included" breakfast we have experienced, and less than 15 minutes away from attractions and shopping. The hotel has a lounge that serves drinks and dinner from 5:00 pm weekdays only. There is also a Chili's restaurant a shot stroll away. Numerous restaurants can be found on Mira Mesa Blvd. a short drive away.... More

Just finished a two-night stay here with my family. The hotel is a solid one, and I don't discourage anyone from staying here. That said, we probably won't return, due to brand loyalties elsewhere. Staff is pretty good. We had to update our reservation a couple of times, and every interaction was a good one. One irksome policy though is... More

Staff-friendly and courteous. 4. Hot drinks and cookies at night. 5. Location-Out of the chaos of the downtown area. Cons: 1. Faucet... More
