I'm writing this review while still staying at this hotel. I found this hotel in a website that listed tractor-trailer friendly hotels. Before I booked the stay I also searched for a promotion code and I got the hotel at a cheaper rate. When I got here, there is not a specific area destined to tractor-trailers. These large vehicles can park outside, on the main street. However, a nice lady which I assume is the manager allowed me to park the truck in the back of the hotel near the freeway. Since I don't mind the freeway noise, I also requested a room in the back to keep an eye on the truck and turn it on every once in a while. I had no issues checking in, the room is decent and clean. You won't find a 5-star decoration or anything like it, but it's clean, no items are broken and it doesn't smell. The bathroom is clean and fully working. The surroundings were also clean, and well kept. Overall it served the purpose and it was a positive experience.
Across from the hotel is Benihana, a Japanese restaurant. They prefer guests to make reservations and since we didn't know that tidbit we had to wait about an hour before being seated on a table for hibachi dinner. Overall I thought it was way too pricey. The chefs cook one thing at a time and you might end up like us, eating cold food while you wait for all the items to get to the plate. There's a possibility it was because it was a Saturday. We did try the sushi and it was good! Benihana didn't do it for me. But today we went to TGI Friday's in Palomar Airport Rd and the food was Amazing!
