This hotel is decent. The rooms are dated but the mattresses are amazing. The customer service is also really good. I must say the one thing I did not like is that their breakfast is 5-9 every day including weekends. Pool is really small. There is plenty of parking so no worries there. It is pretty close to a gas...

Lame breakfast, strict rules, if paying with cash need a 100 deposit, employees are hard to understand, the bathroom door is a shower curtain, the property has been under renovation for years and it still hasnt been completed. The room was the only thing nice besides the shower curtain as a door for the bathroom

Some of the lights didn't work, the microwave was set in a place that the cord did not reach an outlet. Holes in the wall and when I asked for a chair I was told they had furniture on order. The room was clean and bed comfortable

Great price for San Diego. Free Parking a plus. Free breakfast consists of muffins and danishes and coffee. All of the front desk clerks were amazingly friendly and helpful. Thank you so much for making our stay a good one.

“There are no good rooms as far as I can tell.”
  • stained curtain would not cover window so we had to close it in the door
  • This was the iron. covered in tape and bare wires where plug should be
  • The phone was missing a cord. The front desk was notified and did nothing for the 3 days I was t
  • curtains didn't close so we used the room pen to fasten them.
