“Good Stay at Comfort Inn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

This was a very good hotel for family of 4. Easy to find and close to all of the attractions in San Diego and also to the Beaches.
Breakfast was good, although after a week eating the same thing did get a little boring (scramble eggs and sausage or biscuits and gravy) Waffles, toast or danish.
We had a problem with our air conditioner and they moved us to another room right away, excellent service!
Sadly the pool was being repaired and we could not use it, this was a real shame as our children love to swim.

This was a pretty awsome hotel for my family of six. Except the freeway noise that didn't seem to be reduced by the thin walls of the hotel. The room was generous size with two queen beds and a pull out sofa. The breakfast was good except for the fact that it was very crowded and they seemed to always be out of things. The pool was clean and a very comfortable temperature! The staff was pleasant and very helpful.

Room Tip: Find a way to get a room on the other side away from the freeway!

My family stayed here for 4 nights. It was really outstanding. I travel A LOT and this is an incredible hotel. Their breakfast one day was so well-laid-out and excellent, I paid the hostess a tip, the first time I'd ever done that--they had fresh pineapple, strawberries, two flavors of waffles, western omelets, and a huge selection of cereals, breads, juices. The family suites are great, with a big, clean and near-new mattress for the king bedroom and a private door for the kids to have their bunk beds, and a large and clean bathroom. The pool and hot tub are outstanding. I found the front-desk staff very responsive to every detail. I would definitely stay at this place again if I were in San Diego. Probably the best thing about this place was that it was 10 minutes from the zoo, 10 minutes to the baseball park, 10 minutes to SeaWorld and about 15 minutes to the beach. Anything we wanted to, we could get there quickly and easily from this hotel. It is across the road from a shopping mall and about 20 good restaurants. And the price is well worth it--even though I used Choice points for my entire stay. This is a very clean, well-managed hotel and it can handle a lot of people. I was very surprised at how quiet the rooms were. The bedding and mattress was excellent, and gave us a great night's sleep.

First the plusses-there are only a couple of them. The rate for a "suite" was economical-which I'm sure is why this hotel fills up. But "suite" isn't that sweet. They've taken a standard room, cut it in half and voila-the "suite"! The "kid's room" with bunk beds has a window and some space. But mom and dad-if small, dark spaces bother you-go elsewhere. The beds are comfortable-I'll grant them that. The bathroom sink area is tiny, with a fridge right across from it. Those are the good points. Perhaps because this is "economical"-it attracts young families and adults that don't give a hoot how much noise they make at all hours. If you want peace and quiet-check into a Marriott. The breakfast is awful. First of all, the breakfast room is too small and not kept clean. There was syrup all over our seats and the floor had milk and cereal all over it. There was no one to even tell-let alone clean up.The choices were pathetic-yet common at low priced motels. Watery eggs, microwaved sausage, white bread and cheap sugary muffins and rolls. Even the juice was bad. Fortunately I bring my own cereal, so I used their milk. This area is far too small for the size of this place. Be VERY careful about your room location. The breakfast room is on the 4th floor next to rooms. And many rooms overlook the freeway. Overlooking the pool is best-but again, make certain you are far away from the breakfast area. Would I stay here again? No way! But I don't have small kids. There's a place for this, but not for couples or retired folks who would appreciate a decent breakfast and quiet, spacious rooms. I stayed at Comfort Inn in New Hampshire and Vermont and they were wonderful. I think I'll stick to the east coast.

Room Tip: Great for families with noisy kids. Everyone else go to a Marriott.

Could not get kids or myself to bed until way after midnight. Could not sleep in after 8am either. Every motorcycle or car with exhuast was loud through side wall and window. Breakfast was nice, but they charged $10 to park in the hotel. Free parking was offered on the street outside hotel. I mentioned the noisy room the next morning and the staff member seemed not to care as it must be a common complaint. Tub in bathroom also needed repair and maintenance man was fast to fix it for us.

My daughter and I stayed here for our 4 day get away trip to San Deigo with her 2 year old son.
We found this hotel a safe, economical place to stay with staff who were always willing to share any information that we were asking about. Comfort Inn offered a contentental breakfast that was great to access, it was busy but had boiled eggs to waffles(that ran out if you went later than 9:00am). But had yogurt, bread, and fruit.
The hotel shuttle was free to take you to Sea World, Zoo and Old Towne. Very convenient to have a shuttle to Old Towne as then you could access other bus or tram, or train to get to other places. There is also a bus stop a half block away.
The pool we dipped out feet in, and the hot tub, it was older but clean and lounge chairs were nice.

Room Tip: we talked with a couple who could not sleep as they were facing the freeway, so if your not used to...
