For a family with young kids, this hotel is a good bet. The staff are friendly and accommodating, especially in the restaurant where our children were not on their best behaviour. The room is clean and comfortable, and the parking lot access to the large strip mall is a life-saver. It has easy access via the I-5 to downtown SD, the Safari Park etc. We had a room facing the pool and pleasant gardens, which is definitely worth the extra 10 dollars or so, to not face an unbecoming parking lot or the highway. The bathroom had the same problems as my bathroom at home: the stopper for the sink was on its last legs, the bathtub faucet ran a bit even with the shower on, it was a bit on the small side. The fridge was also on its way to fridge heaven, making a clattering noise every time it turned on, and the remote for the TV barely functioned.
The garden maintenance was a bit slack-we were there for 5 days and the rotting hibiscus blossoms from the first day were still on the path on day 5. It didn't look like they were sweeping or tidying more than once a week, contributing to a slightly run-down feel for the whole place. It felt like they were on an economy kick at the start of the slow season (we were there the week after Labour Day). The food at Humphrey's was not as good as the reviews here would have you believe. It is standard factory style food, e.g. my skirt steak was tiny and plain, and the breakfasts were greasy, but the staff were great.
Overall, a totally decent hotel, at a reasonable price. Not fancy, but again, with kids that is totally fine!
