“Rock and Roll Half Marathon Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Stayed here due to the close proximity to the start line of the Rock and Roll Half Marathon 2013. Very surprised when we were invited on Friday evening to share in a barbecue on the patio area. It was a great experience and the food was pretty good. In addition, the rooms were nice and good size. I was surprised at the size of the kitchen area. Would absolutely stay there again.

I booked for 2 nights and had to stay 1 night extra, staff was extemely accomodating. Room was clean and comfortable. Continental breakfast was very good, with helathy options. Friday night happy hour and barbeque was a fun, and met a few nice people that night. Hotel is in the exciting gay Hillcrest area, within walking distance to good shops, restaurants and bars. Will difinitely stay there again.

Room Tip: We had a corner suite with 2 beds, on the first floor, was good location, quiet, close to elevator...

The pictures do not do the Hotel justice. It was very a very nice place, the rooms were large, and quiet, the staff was very polite, and accommodating. If, and when I travel to this area again, I will stay at Sommerset. I read other reviews before taking the plunge of staying here, I was leery due to people complaining about noise (sirens.) I heard very few, and while I was sleeping I heard none. (I was at the very front directly across from the hospital) The other people who traveled with me decided to stay a few miles away, and homeless people were everywhere. I only came across one a few blocks from our hotel at CVS. Sommerset seems very secure, I felt safe bringing my little cousin there with me.
Overall I believe Sommerset is an EXCELLENT choice, and would highly recommend it.

What a great surprise! Hillcrest area with plenty of good restaurants. Room was clean, big and comfortable. They provided us with a playpen to use as a crib for my two years old son. Staff was great and the free continental breakfast was superb. All these at an unbeatable price. Parking $9 per night is a steal! We will go back sooooon!!!

Check-in was quick and easy and the man at the desk was welcoming and friendly and provided us a map on how to get to our room which was very useful as the hotel is very big. I requested a quiet room and although I was issued a room overlooking the busy main road... as I was on the third floor the traffic noise wasn't too bad. The room was clean and tidy with useful kitchen facilities including a dishwasher!

The front desk were happy to order taxis for us for when we needed to venture out and although we were only meant to stay for one night, we ended up booking another night due to circumstances and were more than happy to stay another night here. When we went to the front desk to request another night we were able to stay in the same room and although the lady at the desk (Bonita) was not as warm as the gentleman the day before, she was still professional.

Would recommend this place for the facilities and central location to Hillcrest and North Park and close to the bus stops.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room on the third floor around the back facing a car park.

My wife and I have just returned from yet another stay at Sommerset Suites. Our view is that for lodging in the areas of Kensington, University Heights, Hill Crest, North Park or Talmadge, you just can't top the value of this extremely well-run hotel -- and believe us, we have searched. At least three features of the Sommerset set it apart from generic motels. (1) location near a wide selection of restaurants, (2) spacious suites, and (3) welcoming staff. We should add that they are always on the lookout for yet additional amenities to make a prolonged stay memorable. The hotel is immediately off the arterial 163, which is helpful if you are unfamiliar with San Diego's transit system.

Room Tip: Rooms are virtually identical, but pool-side and toward the back are preferable.

Sommerset is very good located. In the heart of Hillcrest, Several good restaurants, caffee shops and bars in the area. Rooms are good, very clean and a very good and friendly staff in all areas. I have been there several times in the last twoo years and I do recommend if you want to experience the spirit of Hillcrest.
