“Very nice home base for exploring San Diego”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2007

Our group of 6, including 2 small children, stayed here in two suites (each was a one bedroom/living room/full kitchen/one bathroom suite) June 23-27. We found this hotel to be modern and very clean. The staff was very nice, especially the manager. There was a great complimentary breakfast every morning, free newspaper, free parking, free coffee/tea and some fruit available all day long. The hotel is located very conveniently close to I-5, but it is up the hill from the freeway and there is no noise.

There was a fire on a construction site beside the hotel a couple of weeks before our stay. It occurred on appoximately June 12, 2007. The hotel next door that was under construction, and soon to be open, completely burned down. This caused some external damage to one of the wings of the Homewood Suites hotel, and some water damage in the suites of that wing. As a result, the hotel closed that wing for renovations. Otherwise, the hotel is fully operational, including the center courtyard, pool, and hot pool. Other than seeing the external damage to the one wing of the hotel as we drove up, nothing bothered us.

The hotel was easy to find when travelling from the SAN airport. I suggest following the directions as outlined on the Homewood Suites website: Heading I-5 North - Take local bypass for state highway 56. This is 100 yards past the Sorrento Valley Road exit. Exit Carmel Mountain Road and turn right. Drive one third mile to Vista Sorrento Parkway. Turn right on Vista Sorrento Parkway, drive one half mile to the Pacific Plaza traffic light. Make a U-turn at the traffic light and the hotel will be on your right.
These directions are much more accurate than the ones from mapquest.

The hotel was a great base for tourists exploring San Diego. An approximately 20 minute drive to San Diego ZOO and Balboa Park, 15 minute drive to Seaworld, 25 minute drive to Coronado, 10 minutes to Del Mar Beach or La Jolla area.

Although there are no restaurants next to the hotel, there are restaurants and a Vonns grocery store within a 5 minute drive. Front desk has a very good information sheet with directions.

Overall we were very happy with this hotel. It helped us have a great vacation in San Diego.

We spent 4 nights at HHS with our 3 boys & it was excellent. We typically stay in condos but we opted for a hotel this time b/c of the great reviews this place had. It was great getting maid service everyday (condos don't do that) & we loved the meals. The breakfasts were great & it was wonderful to come back after a long day & have dinner waiting. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.

This is a very nice Homewood Suites. The front desk and all staff were very polite and helpful. The room was spotless and very comfortable. The breakfast options were typical, but my husband and I were VERY impressed that each morning, in addition to the regular breakfast attendant, there was a manager present who would direct guests to whatever they were looking for.

It was a bit cold while we were there so I didn't get to see much of the pool or other areas.

My only problem with this hotel is that it was difficult to find - every day and there is nothing near by. I generally try to find hotels within a short easy drive to restaurants, shopping, etc and there is NOTHING near this hotel. We also found the directions compared to the area street signs to be VERY confusing.

Anway, the hotels is nice, but if you like to be closer to dining and groceries.. I'd suggest someplace else.
