This location was such a great find once we arrived in the San Diego area with family and pet awaiting our house to close escrow. We ended up renting a penthouse/suite with two bedrooms. One of the rooms was upstairs in a loft area and the other was just off of the living room. While making a move from overseas... More

Top notch staff. Rose, Michelle and Candice always went above and beyond at the front desk. Was there on business for the federal government. My family came to stay with me for two weeks, and they loved it also.

I stayed at this hotel for 3 weeks in Room 512 on business June 15 to July 3, 2015. This hotel either needs to do a complete remodel or torn down and a newer Residence Inn built. Their are ground level and upper level rooms, so it's not your typical hotel building. I was given a ground level room. The... More

Stayed here for a few nights in April while visiting UCSD (only about 15 min by car). Rooms here are really big, with kitchen facilities (although I didn't use these) and a sitting area. Check in staff were very friendly. Great value considering wifi, parking and breakfast were all free. Breakfast was fairly basic but perfectly adequate.

A great place stay for vocations, good for family and friends. A large 2-floor room with a individual room and a guest area, and a full kitchen. Close to the safari zoo and 15-20min drive to San Diego zoo and the Seaworld. Also lots of good restaurants nearby.
