I would rate the rooms and staff at the top of hotels of this category. Our room was clean, very comfy bed, large room for city. My only objection to this hotel is the quality of food in dining room. The staff was helpful,polite. The hotel has shuttle to Old Towne, a shopping mall and Sea World. Room 1240 is... More

San Diego has become a "tier 1" city in terms of hotel room rates. So you really need to shop around to find something reasonable. I found this hotel competitively priced. Many reviews say this is showing it's age. Look, I've been staying at hotels all across the US, many for business, and I have to say that most hotels... More

Seems like it hasn't had an update since the 60s. Very dark inside the room...brown carpet, brown/black furniture. Shower water is borderline cold. The good things: huge breakfast for just $12 in the restaurant. Polite staff. Early checkout without penalty.

We stayed here for a week in Sept 2106. Great location. We thought the hotel was terrific. Rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. I think most rooms have a balcony with furniture. We used it a lot in the perfect San Diego weather. Fitness center and pool were excellent. Equipment in the fitness center was high quality and well maintained.... More

This hotel is tired! It needs some rejuvenation to liven it up. As is the case with many hotels, bathroom fans are underpowered. This is particularly problematic in an already humid environment. There was mold and mildew evident on bathroom walls. Additionally, the hotel needs deep cleaning to root out dirt build up in the corners. Parking is tight. On... More

Staff was quite friendly. Housekeeper shorted us on linens almost every day. Biggest complaint was the ridiculously overpriced restaurant, which offered a buffet, complete with cold eggs, for "only" $16 each. Different parts of the hotel experienced plumbing problems every day of our stay. This hotel makes me appreciate the Hampton chain all the more.

The location is very convenient to the expressway. It has modern furnishings, nice balcony views, great food, and a friendly staff. The swimming pool and jacuzzi are a bonus! If you are coming to San Diego, this is a great place to stay.

The building itself is a bit dated, but the grounds are very nice. Large pool and jacuzzi, clean & quiet, comfy rooms with an actual balcony. Where do you find that nowadays at these prices? Definitely a best bang for your buck.

Unlike some of the previous reviews, my stay has been very nice so far. The hotel staff is very cordial and willing to go above and beyond to help. While the hotel isn't brand new, the condition of my room and hotel is very good overall. I have no complaints whatsoever and would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone. The... More
