The best way to describe this was average. Not great but not terrible. Im stingy with money so thats why I love coming here. Its not dirty and they provide basic breakfast. service at the front desk could use some work.

We loved our stay here as we were looking for a budget room with kitchen area, microwave, fridge and king size bed. It is not a great hotel but worth the price.Room was clean with free breakfast and free parking. The best thing for us was that the Walmart was 10 - 12 minutes walk from the hotel.

The hotel is quite far from Downtown so we had to take cabs all the time. Right across the road there are a couple of really good restaurants, one Korean and one Mediterranean which are really worth the money! However that is just about the one good thing about it! The hotel is old, tired, the wifi is really bad... More

The California Suites hotel is a basic 2* hotel, with some minor pro's and con's. Pro's. Convenient location (near major freeways, shopping, Walmart, restaurants). Self serve Laundry (4-5 machines). Refurbished and clean rooms, Nice pool, in room, Microwave and refrigerators, low cost (for San Diego). Con's. Dated property, No elevators, slow check in, spotty wifi, limited breakfast (bagels, cereal, juice).... More

For what we payed to stay here for a week we were very pleased. Friendly staff, clean, comfortable room, nice pool, right next to the freeway, a good base to explore San Diego and the surrounding area.

California Suites Hotel has an old school LA feel. If you appreciate grungy 80's style, then you might like this place. I personally liked the feel of it. The layout was confusing and labrynth-like. The room numbers don't seem to be arranged in any particular order, they are just kinda scrambled. We had a hard time finding our room, but... More

I partially blame Travelocity for this stay. We overpaid for a Queen room that was listed for 4, but barely held 2. Room we booked was to have sofa sleeper or roll away. Neither were available. I will be sticking to chains I know and will not trust Travelocity for hotel reservations again.

I've stayed here twice. It's not a grand hotel but worth the price you pay. Their facilities are okay. The bus stop is just a few steps from the hotel if you don't have a car. The restaurants are just near. I just walked going to walmart. A 10-15minute slow walk is not bad. Hotel staffs are accomodating. I checked... More
