Had no shampoo in the bathroom and when I picked up the phone to call the front desk, I realized the phone was completely dead.So I used my cell phone to ask if...

A friend and I booked to stay the night before the San Diego Holiday Half marathon. The race started just outside, so it was the perfect location. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. The layout is a little different but, I didn't find that a problem. The room was large bright and clean. The bed was very comfortable. The...

Compared to my stay here several years ago, the renovations have really changed the appearance and quality of stay here. If you are looking for a nice bungalow-type setting instead of the concrete box concept...you should ask for one of these rooms. There are 4 rooms to a bungalow and each is nicely furnished and private. The private mini-balcony is...

A wonderful stay in a great location. Best beds we've had in a hotel in a long time. Service is friendly and very efficient. Lots of restaurants close by. Only 20-30 minutes to downtown and airport. Wish the golf course was open for future use.

Photos of the hotel and grounds were much nicer than in-person. Decent hotel for the price and could definitely use some updating. The bathrooms are very nice and overshadow the rest of the hotel. Overall 3 1/2 stars.
