“sea world trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

the rooms were clean but very out dated. the shower head was a little short. the location was good we were right off the freeway and there was local shopping just a few blocks down the street. and there was also a few good restaurants to choose from as well. we were only about 10 min from sea world. next year me and my husband are most likely going to find a different place to stay. this hotel was ok for the price.

We stayed here May 11,12, in room 1603 and I have to say we were happy not like other ones we have stayed in. The room was very clean carpet was clean it wasnt loud at night we were right above the pool. We enjoyed the breakfast they had cereal,fruit,bagels,juice,coffee,and pastries. The kitchen was very helpful the beds were comfortable more than enough closet space and when you walk out side all you see is green trees plants very nice. I would stay here again.

I loved the Hotel. I was able to find a room right away. The grounds are beautiful with lovely plants and fountains. However, there was no hot water for the shower. I waited and waited while running the water on hot and only cold water came out. I would recommend this hotel but ask about the water.

We stayed here May 3rd for just one night. I booked this hotel based on location, reviews and price. I was not disappointed for the most part. Our room was right next to the laundry room which made me a bit sceptical about the noise level, but actually there was no problem. The hotel had locked gates to enter the central area, as well as the pool area, I really appreciated that. The room was wonderful, very clean and roomy. It had a nice flat screen TV and a small kitchenette area (2 burner stove, microwave, refrigerator, sink and cabinets, although you must provide all of your own cookware etc). In the bathroom, my husband really appreciate the numerous hand bars for assistance in the tub area, there was also a bench attached to the wall that you could lay down and sit across the tub. The courtyard was nice, it had alot of established plants and flowers, and a fountain. It was very pleasant, looked well kept. The only disappointment we had would be the breakfast........very small selection......cereal, juice, coffee, bagels, fruit and some sort of pastry. We got there relatively early, but it was not very well stocked. But all in all for the price, it was a good stay and we would stay there again. Also it is located on Clairemont Mesa Blvd, which had a multitude of places to eat, and a shopping area with Walmart etc. about 5 min. away.

Room Tip: Definately request a bottom level room.

I was on a very tight budget and this hotel was a good fit for location and price. It was clean and the staff were personable and professional. Motel 6 is across the street, but I would not hesitate to recommend this place as a much better value. Be aware that the kitchenette has nothing but the cupboards and appliances; you will have to supply your own silverware, can opener, etc. It worked for us - Mom and 14 yr old daughter on Spring Break.
