4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I'm a local, from Oceanside CA and a burst water pipe forced me from my home. My small suite had clean, working appliances, a comfy bed and an air conditioner that was only mildly noisy. All of the staff were so kind, accommodating and friendly. A special shout-out to both Karl and Ricardo for outstanding service!

I choose this hotel based on reviews and the fact it had a kitchenette. I have dietary restrictions, so cooking for myself is necessary. Finding the hotel location was easy. The parking lot wasn't crowded and accessible to the entrance. Check in was quick and easy, and the staff was pleasant. When we first arrived in our room, it was... More

The school I was visiting reserved an impressive suite for me here, containing a full kitchenette (with full-size refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher, as well as two burners), small dining table, large sitting area, and comfortable king-size bed. The decor inside the room and in the lobby and corridors was tasteful, with artistic photographs and prints. The breakfast was a step... More

Just completed a 5 day stay here and was SO extremely impressed by all that this hotel and location had to offer. We arrived on a Tuesday and tried to check-in at about 2 but our room wasn't ready. We had just had a 6 hour drive so asked if the kids could swim in the pool while we waited... More

Overall stay was ok. Here are the pros and cons: Pros - check in was smooth, fast and efficient. Rooms are newer and modern. Cons - hotel staff a bit snotty and here is why. Breakfast staff especially the male server was pushy and trying to be friendly. We stayed for 6 nights and every morning, the breakfast areas was... More
