Service was great, facilities was well maintained, nice swimming pool and good breakfast. Family room was big enough for 2 parents and 2 kids, though air condition unit was old and noisy. Luckily waether was fair... More

This middle-aged out-of-shape visitor arrived aching and exhausted after a day traipsing around Balboa Park museums, and was provided with a ground-floor room away from the street. The few staff members I dealt with, both that afternoon and the next morning for breakfast, were friendly and helpful. I can recommend this facility to anyone, especially since it's *very* convenient to... More

Took off my watch and put on the table of the room when I arrived. Disappeard two days later. They said they didn't find it, but I'm sure that the last time I saw my watch it was in that room, no more wear it during my staying. Hope they can find it and send to me as promised.

Traveling with a 2-year-old and 11-month-old, this was a great location. Close enough to SeaWorld and the Zoo/Balboa Park to make returning for afternoon naps easy, and conveniently located to the airport, Old Town shopping and dining, freeway access, lots of good family dining options (In-n-Out, Chick-fil-A, Souplantation, Burger King), and stores for needed necessities.

Wonderful staff, great facilities, awesome free breakfast, big family room. We stayed for 5 nights as a family of 4 and had a wonderful time. Easy drive to heaps of shops and food places.

This was an excellent hotel! We stayed on the third floor and did not have any noise issues. The rooms appeared to have been recently updated and were very comfortable.
