The furniture in our room was old and in very beatup condition. It was dingy, way past needing updating. Needs a deep cleaning. Didn't want to walk around without socks, ugh. It is a very poor choice for pets. No rooms at ground level and the dog areas were minimal and dirty. This hotel is a black eye for the...

Clean room, access to several freeway, plenty of places to access restaurants, movie theater, and a mall. 15 minutes from Old Town, Gaslamp Quarters, Sea World, San Diego Zoo and Coronado Beach. Central location and great place to stay.

I have stayed at this particular hotel on several occasions when traveling on business in San Diego. The staff has always been professional, courteous and efficient. The upgrades to the hotel, particularly the breakfast room and expanded offerings have made the experience even better. It is centrally located with easy access to freeways, restaurants and shopping.

We used to love this hotel - have stayed here many times, great rooms, great breakfast, then our car was broken into in the parking garage the last night of our last stay. Now we are not so sure that we feel safe here. Not sure that we will be back.

We love this hotel. They welcome our 2 dogs. The breakfast just continues to improve, adding scrambled eggs, bacon and biscuits and gravy now! Keep in mind, it is a mid priced hotel.
