Hotel had obviously been refurbished - noticed that the minute I stepped on the new carpet. Everything was new and very clean. Friendly front desk service. Breakfast had more than enough choices and they were all very good. Only big issue I had the first day was that I had to ask when our room was going to be cleaned (I did have the sign on the door). They didn't come until 4:15. I wish they would have included body lotion in their bath amenities too - only offered shampoo and conditioner. Also request a room that isn't on the Mira Mesa Blvd side of the hotel. It's very noisy with car traffic 24 hours. There were a couple other noise issues - like hearing someone above us walking alot and a less than quiet refrig.
