The following is a very detailed review of our stay at the Comfort Suites. We were assigned Room #307 of this four story hotel for two nights. We got a great rate for this hotel through Hotwire, as hotels in San Diego were very expensive this time of year, and surprisingly, more costly than Los Angeles hotels. The hotel appears to have been built in the early to mid 1990s and it is next door to a Holiday Inn Express.
In the same center as the Comfort Suites is a Pizza Hut, a Shozen Korean Restaurant, Ariana Kebob Restaurant (Afghan Restaurant) and Denny’s. Across the busy street (5 lane street) which is also a hill, is a Trader Joe’s restaurant and other places.
INTERNET – The internet is very easy to access and we experienced no difficulties whatsoever in accessing wireless service.
LAUNDRY FACILITY – There is no laundry in the Comfort Suites, however, there appears to be a reciprocity arrangement with the Holiday Inn Express, so we did our laundry there. It costs $1.50 for washer and $1.25 for dryer (60 minutes). The hotel key from Comfort Suites worked on the side door of the downstairs laundry room at Holiday Inn Express.
FITNESS CENTER - Across from the pool is a room that houses typical fitness center equipment such an elliptical machine, stationary bicycle, treadmill, and universal gym. There are towels and water available for guests.
BREAKFAST – I have stayed at many hotels that offer breakfast with their rooms and this one is one of the worst. There were a lot of gnats in the coffee area. The cranberry juice was so watered down it tasted like fruit punch and not at all like cranberry juice. The orange juice and the apple juice taste terrible, too. The area where the waffle machine is had used and abandoned batter cups just left there (lazy people did not step over to the trash can to throw used items away). Otherwise, there was bacon and sausage, eggs, hard boiled eggs, two types of yogurt, dry cereal, packet oatmeal, hot water for black tea and hot chocolate, a variety of bread for toasting, and whole fruit (apples, bananas and oranges).
PARKING –The Comfort Suites shares a lot with the Holiday Inn Express, however, there is a front lot and a back lot – the front lot gets full because many don’t know there is a back lot behind the two hotels.
The hotel room is not new, but I felt it was well maintained. The air conditioning is very cold. The desk area along with a TV, refrigerator, microwave, bar sink, pullout soft, and chair, coffee table and end table are in the “living room” portion of the suite.
In the middle of the suite is the bathroom area. The sink is on the outside and then there is a door to the tub/shower and toilet. The bathroom is dark if the timer connected light and exhaust fan are not in use. The last area is the bedroom area which includes a TV and bureau with closet and bed.
I believe that this hotel is an excellent value for the price. There is no fee for parking, and hotel is at the I-15 Freeway entrance. The business center is located near the elevator, and there are two computers and one printer for guests to use.
I would probably not return here as I like to stay at newer, independent boutique hotels. However, for the price of the hotel, it is a good value.
