“Comfortable Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

My family and I stayed here during our trip to San Diego. The property is clean and sparkling. We had a King Suite and the size of the room was perfect for us with plenty of room for the kids to play during our down time. The King bed was very comfortable. The sofa bed was a sofa bed....springy and hard to sleep on, but my daughter was comfortable enough. The staff is awesome....very kind and helpful. Once we went to the pool and there were no towels. A quick trip to the front desk got us towels immediately at pool side. The pool is very clean and has a great shallow area perfect for my 5 year-old. The breakfast was well apportioned with hot items and things like cereals and a waffle making station. The only issue we had was the location of the room. We got in late on Saturday evening and all they had left apparently was a room with a view of the wall that encloses the entire second story. I would recommend asking for a room above the second floor. Overall we were very happy with our stay and would definitely come back.

Room Tip: Avoid the second floor as there is a wall that totally obstructs the view

Usually, we stay at Best Westerns but we couldn't get into our usual and I'm glad. We got to try the Country Inn & Suites for the first time and were very satisfied with the room, free breakfast with hot items, plenty of space and a friendly, professional front desk. With our son attending UCSD we'll be staying here again!

Room Tip: We asked for a received a room away from the ice machines. The room was spacious and clean with nice...

We always stay at your facility when we visit our son in San Diego. He lives close by and it is very convenient for us. It is nice to have food available in the bar area. The breakfast bar is wonderful! The staff, food and accommendations are perfect for us!

Hotel was very clean! Breakfast was great everyday! The hotel staff at the front desk was helpful and friendly. The breakfast staff was friendly and the food was better than most hotels.
Pool and hot tub were nice and relaxing. Clean towels were provided.
Only downside was the shower pressure! It was horrible but other than that the hotel was great and I'd stay here again if in the San Diego area.

Stayed here one night with the kids. Pool was clean and inviting and breakfast was pretty good. Fresh baked cookies upon check-in were a hit and the Chili's restaurant is practically in the same parking lot, which made it very convenient. This was our first time at a Country Inn & Suites and we had a good experience.

I got a room for under 100 bucks on hot wire .com and for that price it was a really good deal. The room was large, maybe a little dated. It was clean and breakfast was decent. I would book here again for the same price.
