3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We checked in late and were assigned the bottom floor. I specifically requested the top floor. We got into our room and it smelled like mildew but were only staying for one night and were too tired to go work with the front office to try and get another room. The $100 incident hold is a bit much especially when... More

This hotel was clean and quiet. The breakfast was good, they had hot and cold items. It did get crowded if you didn't get there early. The ac unit worked great. The rooms were very well cleaned every night. We stayed for 3 nights. We didn't check out the pool or the hot tub, since we were there for the... More

Stayed here on our visit to San Diego...had been a long time since we had been to SD. The staff was wonderful. They give you a list of restaurants in the area which is great. The room was large, beds were very comfortable, breakfast was very good..lots to choose from.. Wish we could have stayed longer..

This hotel met our needs perfectly. We weren't looking for a resort to hang out at all day, but rather a clean, comfortable place to come back to and sleep after seeing the surrounding area. It was clean, well-maintained, and well worth the low price that we paid. It wasn't fancy, but very clean and well-maintained.

Everything was OK until we got home, I discovered, we were double charged for our stay. We booked via Expedia and made prepayment, but were still charged by a hotel afterwards. Besides that location is good, next to freeway, but relatively silent, good access to SeaWorld and Belmont park

Rooms where very clean, beds very comfortable. Great value in the free breakfast. Our room location was near the elevator and laundry room where the employee seemed to gather at 7:30am and like clock work would talk loud and wake us up. We would of gave the hotel 4 stars if it wasn't paper thin walls and noisy location.

The hotel is close to so many attractions in San Diego. Hotel staff are friendly and always helpful. Comfortable and clean bed and pillows. The carpet in the room is quite due for replacement. Overall, we had a pleasant stay.

This hotel has a good location, if you are there for sea world or the beach. We were there because of my nephews football championship. However when we went to the beach it was only 10 minutes away and had a nice little area of restaurants. The hotel's breakfast was ok. You have your basic items- eggs, sausage, and french... More
