Have expectation for this 3-star when booked it but after check-in found out it doesn't deserve these stars. The hotel is old and not very well cared, the hallways are dirty and the rooms outdated and dirty. No restaurants in the area only the hotel restaurant. I will not return.

We used Priceline Express deals to book a hotel in the Chula Vista area, and this is what we got. It's not in a great neighborhood; certainly not one where you would feel safe taking a walk in the evening. The furniture, carpet, and phones in the room look like they're from the 80's. The dining room staff didn't seem... More

I booked this hotel through Price Line and got a great deal. I'm not terribly picky about hotels. My requirements are clean and safe. Check in was easy. Because I am a choice member I got a goodie bag with a bottle of water & some Miss Vickie's chips. I'm only a member because I called to confirm my reservation... More

We arrived a few minutes early and the nice lady at the front desk told us to come back in about an hour and that we would be upgraded. Upon returning an hour later, we were greeted with a goody bag and had been given an "upgraded" room with a view of the Coronado Bridge. Check in was super easy... More

Best thing about this hotel is its close proximity to I-5, but the noise also accompanies it. The price is right for a location near San Diego, only a few miles/minutes to the zoo, museums, local attractions, etc. Hotel has a bar and restaurant, which is convenient, but not the greatest. Jack in the Box is within walking distance and... More

For several years, my husband and I have stayed at this hotel to visit a family member who lives close by. There are many pros of staying this hotel and some cons but I believe the pros far outweigh the cons. The Pros: 1. The price is very reasonable for San Diego area. Downtown is 15 minutes away by car.... More

I had to attend my Annual two-week Training at the Navy base in San Diego. I chose this hotel because it is very close to the 28th street exit and gate I only stayed one night at the Clarion hotel. The parking was included but did not have security to patrol the parking lot. They did have surveillance cameras, no... More

Fortunately we were only there for one night. My first impression was awful! The lobby looked messy but I had to admit that the lady who helped us with the check in was very nice. We went up to our floor and when elevator doors opened we weren't sure if we were in the attic or manteinance room, the walls... More

We had free hotel points and trip advisor said this place had excellent reviews so we tried it out. First impressions are huge! There are signs everywhere regarding security and when we pull up, the security guy is smoking in the parking lot. No baggage guys to greet you or anything. We walk through what appears to be the back... More

Pleasant staff. As choice members we were greeted with a welcome bag of bottled water and chips...a nice touch. The room, although very outdated, was sufficiently clean. The shower walls could use additional attention to the grout as mildew was present. The A/C was very loud when turning on/off, thus we kept the fan running at night to keep from... More
