“Ten Minutes To Everywhere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

I had the oppotunity to lodge some of my clients at Sommerset twice now and the feedback as well as my personal interactions with staff has been excellent, from sales, to front desk and bell man. Upon touring the property, I found it to be in overall good condition. Wall paper in the halls could use replacing.. some dingy areas on the carpet in one of the rooms.. regular wear and tear..However, I found thier customer service second to none. At anytime, any reason, they were always very receptive to the need of my client, very timely in getting back to me, and overall communication was terriffic. The rooms are spacious. The cleaning staff were friendly and daily housekeeping I would rate above average . I find this hotel competively priced for the amenities provided & location of the property. Would recommend to a friend & stay there myself without hesitation. keep up the good work folks. = Weddings of Coronado

The hotel has a terrific housekeeping team. The rooms were clean and well maintained. The location was not terrific especially for families with young children. Breakfast was adequate and offered hot waffles. There is also a serious parking challenge. We parked our rental car in the lot on Friday evening. On Saturday morning, it was completely blocked in by two other cars. I informed the front desk attendant and his suggestion was to put a sign on the other vehicles- not incredibly helpful. I wasn't able to move the car until Sunday morning. It was a frustrating experience to pay for a rental car that I couldn't use.

Conveniently located to great resturants, bars, banks and no need to drive any where. The hotel is located in a grest area. The rooms were very clean and a nice size. The staff were wonderful and helpful all with a smile!

Only hotel in the heart of Hillcrest area. Walking distance to food, shops, Wholefoods. Rooms are older, but comes with a kitchen. That means I can have my tea before bed, store fresh fruit in fridge, and hubby can have his beers on hand. Nice patio and small pool. AND, they provide breakfast, parking, cookies in lobby.

Room Tip: Some rooms with balcony, ask.

Stayed here a year ago (around April, 2012) so my memory is slightly rusty, but we liked it. I think that this building used to be apartments or efficiencies, and the rooms were more spacious than most hotel rooms (larger closets, more shelf space).

Room was clean, comfy, and I noticed no off odors.

Can't remember much about the breakfast (whether it was just cold stuff, or if they also had hot food). I think that they had some hot food. I recall it being ok, not way too crowded.

One of the things I really liked: I could go for a run right out the front door, head south to Balboa Park, run back, get some citrus water in the lobby.

We might have stayed there again this year but we had one problem last year: our rented SUV was too big to fit in the small parking spaces, and we had to cruise nearby streets to find parallel parking. We did find parking, but it was kind of a hassle. We had a smaller car this year, and I wish we'd have come back to Sommerset (but wife had fears about the parking situation).

Good place, particularly if you want to be able to walk/jog explore right out the front door.

a good clean hotel with a friendly staff in a great location at the center of Hillcrest area. The room was clean and well kept by the staff during our 5 day stay. The parking is a little tight but a bargain at only $9.
Very easy to get to Balboa Park, zoo, etc.

We had a delightful week's stay and found the location perfect for our needs - close access to the interstate system and quite close to Balboa Park. Great restaurants in the area. The staff was uniformly pleasant and helpful.
