If you are in San Diego for fun, this is a good place to stay. Room rate included a king bed room with a sofa bed, free breakfast, free wireless internet and free parking. Room was clean, spacious and convenient. The only downside, the room didn't have a fridge!
Location-wise, the hotel is centrally located very near the airport, Sea World, and old town. The hotel also provides shuttle to the airport and oldtown, which is nice if you want to avoid using a car. It would have been nice if they offered a shuttle to sea world too, but they didn't.
Breakfast was the typical hot buffet. However the setup of the buffet and refill rate of the food was very bad. I literally had to stand in line for ~15 minutes to get some food. In addition, the seating area doesn't match (or even come close) the number of rooms. So you end up standing waiting for a table to be free.
Late checkout was an option but an expensive one! 25$ per hour? That's a lot. It would have been very convenient if they had a half day upon availability late checkout at that rate! Well, the good side is, you get a free late checkout at 1pm, but when I requested that, it didn't show up on the system, so obviously the front desk guy didn't really enter the instructions.
Overall, I would recommend the hotel if you are going to San Diego. I know you can get cheaper rates, but they will be quite far (~30 minutes drive) from the main attractions. I personally don't like spending time in my car during my vacations...
