“Comfortable and modern hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

The hotel is located in Chula Vista, south of San Diego. You can get to the city center in 15-20 min by car.
The hotel is very close to the freeway entrance and there are fast foods in the area.
The parking is included in the hotel rate.The hotel was recently restructured.
We were there for two night in August, the room was clean and comfortable and in a modern style.
It was just a little small, so if you have many luggage it can be a problem.
The bathroom is large enough and comfortable but it is separated from the room by a glass door with a awning (not the best for the privacy!).
Breakfast is included in the rate, the quality of the food is good and it's tasty.
Personnel at reception is very kind and helpful.

Looks like the hotel has been completely remodeled, everything is new, shiny and clean. Ultra modern decor. As long as you don't mind small (like Europe hotels) this is a great value. Bed was very comfortable, staff friendly and attentive. Breakfast was decent - again European with ham/turkey/cheese but also included scrambled eggs, bacon, potatoes. Too bad the fruit selection was very limited - a banana would have been great. If you're staying in Chula Vista, this is the place!

I will definitely be staying here again!!!! The room was immaculate upon arrival! We got the single bed room, since that was all they had left, but it served its purpose. The bed was huge and beyond comfortable. I didn't even want to get out of it. The only thing I wish it had was a tub, but I guess that was good since we only stayed 1 night. Parking kinda sucks, but I have a huge car so it may not apply to everyone. All and all extremely happy with this little find!!!!!! Truely is a diamond in the rough!!!!

This little place is different from anyplace I have ever stayed. Very small lobby area, but it was clean and offered complimentary fresh apples. The room is tiny, TINY, but exceptionally clean and stylish. Comfortable king-size bed. Wooden shutters on the window. Entire wall of bathroom is frosted glass. Even the door into the bathroom is a large frosted glass door. There is a curtain to pull across the entire wall if you need more privacy from the bedroom area. Excellent large walk-in shower. The bathroom is of adequate size but doesn't have much area to sit out all your toiletry items. The free breakfast was one of the best we have ever had. My biggest complaint was the lighting in the room. Just a few small, dim lights. That is probably in keeping with the atmosphere of the place, but I like to have bright lights when I want them. As great as this place was, we would probably not stay there because the room is so small and because of the dim lighting. But if that would not be an issue for you, you would probably love this hotel. The price is more than reasonable! Some reviewers have complained about the area of town, but it seemed fine to us...just a little old.

for what this hotel advertised and the photos they showed I was really excited to stay here. When we checked in the little lobby was cute and hip looking. When we were given our keys and told how to get to to our room up the elevator we were fine. When we stepped off of the elevator, we were basically in a 1970's motel. Walking on the balcony was scary because it was slated and we were in the back of the "hotel", so there was a lot of walking. When we got into the room it was really cute and updated. Hip and Happening. but very small. only 1 person could walk at the end of the bed between the tv and the bed. The bed was only a nightstand away from the bathroom door. But we were there just for the night so it was ok. Would have been really disappointed if we had booked in there for a longer amount of time

Thank you very much, it was our pleasure to have you at the Hercor Hotel.

This is the first time we hear complaints about our Hotel being scary; the access to the Hotel is blocked so only guests can enter, lights and security cameras are installed in our Hotel and we have never had any incident with any of our guests.

We hope you enjoyed the comfort, design and edge technology that we offer on our rate with no extra charge.

We are looking forward to seeing you again,

Best regards.

What a surprise! I was pleased with this hotel. Maybe because it is new, but I guess the price will increase with time, because it is really nice. The bathroom is large, compare to the room, no bathtub. The breakfast is perfect with real dishes not the one you put in the garbage. Everything is well maintained, keep with ice. The boys went in the afternoon and There were chocolate cookies. Very easy access, as we were coming from the i-5, i did not notice that the area is not the best of san diego. There is a seven-eleven, just beside, a carl's jr, a pollo loco and a taco something.

This hotel is a recently remodeled facility...very well done. The location in Chula Vista is just a few miles south of down town San Diego and just a block away from the red line station that can take you into the city in minutes. The hotel has private parking, comfortable beds and overall very nice rooms. For 1/3 the price of down town hotels...it's definitely worth a look.
