Family stayed for a 5 day vacation. The location is a short drive to all attractions. Hotel staff was always friendly breakfast was great, pool was refreshing, and the onsite laundry came in handy as we didn't have to pack as many clothes. We would stay here again.

My wife, daughter and I stayed here for two nights during Surf Cup soccer tournament. First, the room was clean and in good repair. Rest of property was similarly well kept up. Location was a 20-40 minute drive from the San Diego beaches, zoo, Sea World, etc., depending on traffic conditions. Complimentary breakfast was good with decent variety. Staff was... More

Stayed here for a few days on business. I could walk to work or take the hotel shuttle, which was very convenient. Not much to do within walking distance so you'll need a car if you're doing stuff during the evenings or on the weekend. Nice start to the day with a decent breakfast. Staff was very welcoming and courteous.... More

Stayed at this hotel for my Daughter's basketball tournament in mid July. The hotel was very nice and comfortable with free wi-fi. The location was perfect, close to Seaport Village, Gaslamp, Sea World, etc. The staff was excellent and very accommodating.

Hotel was great, the location for those going to Qualcomm HQ is perfect and walking distance. The hotel is modern with everything you need for a very reasonable price. For those looking for a holiday this is not the place and far from the beach but for business great. Breakfast was great and all you need. Coffee, Tea and cookies... More
