“Was super close to my daughter on the camp Pendleton base!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

It was a good experience, I had read other reviews about how it was so noisy so I was expecting that and I had not one problem with noise from the road it was super quiet! Never went for the free breakfast but it was just basic continental breakfast items which was fine because if you wanted hot food their are many places right around the corner! For the price it was very clean and nice rooms! Bed was comfy! I definitely would stay again!

pleasantly surprised. good price, very nice rooms - huge bathroom, good sized rooms, close to ocean. only problem was there is a lot of party and drinking in surrounding rooms. Heard bottles break outside our room and next morning my husband got glass through his shoe. would definately stay again!

Room Tip: no elevator, so be mindful if that is required. made it a little difficult with all of our luggage...

5 minute walk from the harbor and restaurants which was nice with the limited parking. Room was clean and updated. Shower was small but clean and newly remodeled. For the price of the room the quality was more than expected.

Room was a little small but that is only complaint. Very clean, staff friendly and helpful. Great location to access the beach we forgot milk for our young son and staff happily filled a cup for us. Would stay here again anytime

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

We stayed four nights mid-February on a family holiday. Our main reasons for choosing this property was the close proximity to the beach as well as Legoland and other San Diego area attractions. I think it was about 10 minutes to Legoland, which was fantastic. The beach was close enough to walk to, but we drove as we had a bunch of stuff to bring. Gorgeous, safe beach with small waves near shore and surfers further out. Some free parking with pay parking as well.

The room has had some upgrades, and was fairly clean. We didn't kick up much of a fuss, as the price was so good, but we did have a baby crawling on the floor and had to pick up some silk rose petals maybe leftover from a Valentine's Day tryst, lol!

We faced slightly away from the freeway and even from a small town, the noise didn't really bother us. We were only there for sleeping, and after such busy days, a busy highway couldn't keep us awake. We ran the fan one or two nights, as was suggested by another reviewer of this property, and that was ok at covering some traffic noise.

The breakfast wasn't great, but we filled the fridge and ate breakfast in the room. Ultimately, we would likely recommend this property, but after 4 days we were happy to check out.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that faces away from the freeway for a bit of a break from the noise.

Some English guy was in the office very jovial and friendly. When the manager showed behind the dwsk, he suddenly changed into an irate customer. He was loudly complaining about the coffee maker in his room. He turned to me and asked "How did you like this place?" I said, "I love the price, which beats any other imperfection anyone may find." He agreed, shut up and settled down by 86%.

Habor Inn & Suites is great, quite, clean and inexpensive place to get good sleep. I will continue to stay here when overnighting in San Diego.

This is not a luxury hotel, but it is clean, comfortable, and the innkeepers are really accommodating. The short walk to the beach and harbor was a major bonus. Realize that the inn is next to a major highway, so if the sound of cars rushing by bothers you, you may not want to stay here. We stayed in the two room suite, which was great affording privacy for me and my adult daughter. I would definitely stay again!
