I was looking for a reasonably priced hotel for Labor Day weekend that was close to San Diego's prime tourist spots (most beaches, Old Town, downtown, La Jolla, Point Loma) (it's also very close to the airport and Seaworld). I was considering trying Priceline when I read about this hotel in a guidebook. I decided to go with a highly rated known rather than save a few bucks on an unknown hotel that was further away (had been considering Hotel Circle in Mission Valley). So glad I did! Despite being right off I-5 and I-8, my room was quiet (with door/windows closed and fan on, which I always like for white noise). Breakfast didn't include eggs, meat, or yogurt, but it did have tropical fruit, oatmeal, cereals, great OJ, pastries, and more. Since all rooms come with a fridge and the hotel is less than 1.5 miles from at least two major grocery stores (Ralphs and Sprouts), I bought my own yogurt and kept it in the fridge. Staff was friendly, maid service was good, grounds are pretty (good view of plants/flowers while eating breakfast), and lobby had computer I could use to print my airplane boarding pass. Rooms have DVD players and they have a big, free library (I confess, I watched a short movie spread out over two nights before bed). It's even possible to see Seaworld's fireworks show from across the street, although I drove a few minutes to be closer. It's walking distance to Old Town and the area immediately west of the hotel is filled with places to eat, from fast food to restaurants. Bed was comfortable, as were pillows. I had an economy room and found it more roomy than expected. The pool looked small, but I didn't use it so I can't speak to it. The area itself was pretty, with plants/flowers around it. There isn't a fitness center (that I know of); wish the rating allowed a "NA."
I asked for a quiet room, despite not having read complaints about noise, because it was so close to...
