I was traveling with two children, and this hotel looked like it would be a great one night stopover on our way thru. Free food when you have teenagers is always a huge plus!! The extra space in a one bedroom suite, and the two seperate televisions was also top on my list. Unfortunately while in San Diego my 16 year old son suffered a sudden medical issue causing us to remain in the area for three months! Homewood Suites took us in and kindly extended our stay while my son remained in the hospital and recovered. We became like family as each member of the staff showed their concern, and offered their support. The amenities this hotel offers, along with the one of a kind employee team, made our extremely stressful situation bearable. Monica at the front desk, was always willing to help with mailing or faxing the growing amount of paperwork I was being given. David, the two Normas, and Karla, who worked in the kitchen, also did their best to take care of us, and fill our needs. There was always a variety of food, and it was hot and tasty. My daughter ate a waffle every morning!! We also appreciated the housekeeping staff who was very understanding and patient with all our needs. The management as well, especially Ann-Marie and Andrew really went above and beyond anything I could of hoped for during our stay. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone coming to San Diego, whether its one night or three months. Its location is a bit out of the city, but they make up for it with the service, and no parking fees!!! You must go check it out for yourself!
