“Nice hotel! for familys”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Great Breakfast and cookies in the afternoon - but go for the cookies early ( they put them out at 5p) because they are gone in a flash... ! Chilis next door good alt for the kids cheaper than room service - nice pool- clean rooms - great hotel- location is in middle of office parks /businesses - but there is a nice hiking trail closeby-

We spent 3 nights here after a conference in downtown San Diego. We switched to Country Inn and Suites because the price was excellent and it is not very far from downtown. The breakfast was great and I loved the fire place with an area to sit, relax and visit.

Room accomodations were very nice without the high price!

Some times I read ratings on various travel or restaurant sites, and I get mixed signals. Is the place being reviewed as good as they said, or, in some cases as lousy as described. This hotel is great. The very best in it's price range. Free Parking. Free Internet. Free Breakfast. I'll stay here again.

We spent 2 nights while watching 2 grandsons play in a water polo tournament that took place at 5 venues the hotel was centrally located and convenient to all. The breakfast was included and had very good selections. The staff was excellent and were extremely tolerant of all the young water polo players conversing in the lobby gathering hall. The room was spacious and reasonably priced. A very good experience.

A lovely property, tastefully decorated throughout and having the advantage of a restaurant and bar on site. Staff were friendly and efficient.The room was modern, comfortable and quiet. The complementary breakfast was excellent. We ate locally at the Wine Seller & Brasserie and, although a little difficult to find, was well worth seeking out.

I have reservation for a month stay at this hotel. I checked in late but, the administrator copied all my personal data. When I try to pay part of my stay I was very surprised to find that my names (first name and surname) were mistaken. But the worst thing was that, the credit card registered to my room actually was not mine. It was very frustrating and I don't receive even apology. A couple days later the receptionist called me. She told me that even I have made pay with my credit card, the other card is still registered to my room. So she need to try re-register my card to my room again.

It is very unprofessional and can cause a lot of money to someone that even don't know me to pay for my stay, because of this mistake.

I recommend to be very careful when check-in at this hotel.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with the online community. I am very disappointed to see that your stay with us was not up to the expectations during your stay with us. I would like to apologize for the lack of communication and the misunderstanding that took place during stay in regards to your credit card. Customer service is a huge priority of ours, and especially when it comes to our guest’s method of payment. I unsure you with our check in producer this should not happen, and once again I apologize for any inconvenience this may have brought you. With that being said, I hope you were able to enjoy our hotel amenities and once more thank you for your valued feedback and we hope we once again will have the opportunity to have you as our guest.
