I booked this hotel via British Airways in the UK, the rate (breakfast not included) paid implied anything but budget! Upon arrival I had to check I was in the right place. The hotel has all the hallmarks of a well used budget motel and to be fair the room was clean but I use the term shabby chic to describe the overal ambience. Our room was quite dark and dismal (reminiscent of UK b&b in the 70's) this was not the impression I got from the the BA site when booking, at best I would say BA description was generous. I have no objection to budget motels and they have their place in my travel arrangements but this is not what I had in mind for this visit. One of the pitfalls of booking a hotel in one continent and living in another. No great shakes just disappointing.
Some tips: the Circles North and South are a beltway of hotels about 3 or 4 miles from downtown SD. Thus, hotel location ok for parking (free) if you have a car but you have a short drive into SD from here, same for attractions in Bilboa Park (parking free). If you stay here be prepared to drive to other locals, which is common for US folks but if your here from UK/Europe, you will need a car! There is a local shop on site and a bar which were useful. Parking in SD same as everywhere else, meters and warderns everywhere. Also watch out if you park near Midway battleship before 8pm you pay for parking but don't just replenish your meter you will get a ticket, your stay is monitored.
