I would recommend this hotel, very comfortable, great location, good breakfast and great staff. Very easy to navigate as it's close to the main road and we found the hotel be very central and was easy to get around by car.

As I was visiting San Diego I was looking for a convenient hotel that provides great access to the city. Best location out of the city- easy to get to points south, north and east (probably west too but I haven't headed in that direction yet). Quiet location, great room, great cleaning crew and free breakfast and dinner. The hotel... More

Great accommodations. Wonderful complimentary breakfasts. Clean, well maintained property. We loved the second bedroom on the loft. The pool and hot tub are adequate. The onsite laundromat is a great help. This is a perfect place to stay since the units have 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths. I will stay here again next time I visit beautiful San Diego.

I was pleasantly surprised when I received an upgrade to a 2 story loft apartment style suite. It was so modern, clean and huge! The location is perfect with easy access to the highway, malls, restaurants, etc. I also liked the fact that for breakfast they offered turkey sausage. I will definitely stay here again next time I am in... More

The entire staff made us feel very welcomed. They were super friendly, kind, cheerful and helpful. Our room was very nice and clean with a comfortable bed and lots of room. We were centrally located, only a short drive to downtown SD, Sea World, zoo or to La Jolla and Mission beach. We could see and hear the occasional fighter... More

We were in town for a soccer tournament and when we arrived check in was a snap. Friendly check in host and our room was ready to go! The room was clean and just what we needed. Check out was just a simple and hassle free. We will remember this hotel for our next San Diego Tournament or vacation.

We knew we wanted to go to San Diego but had not done any serious planning. Two families wanted to travel and visit the various places of interest in San Diego. With the Christmas vacation time fast approaching, we made the bookings via Priceline. We got a good price and I set my expectations quite low. We reached the hotel... More
