I picked this hotel for its name, price and location. It served us well. The front desk people and the shuttle people were great. The breakfast was more than adequate. The pool was clean and warm.Evan though there are railroad tracks behind the hotel and a lot of families with kids, we heard nothing outside of our room. The only... More

We stayed for two nights at a two room suite and both rooms had one double bed each , which I thought too small for a couple ! Breakfast is complimentary with good options but ends at 9:00 am, which can be deemed early when you are on vacation. Anyway, in a over view the hotel is very good. There... More

Super convenient to the airport. It is a beautiful 2 mile walk along the bike path. Also close to the trolley (light rail) and the commuter rail station. A couple of blocks from the bay and little Italy (check it out). Rooms nice as well. Nice job!

I previously rated this establishment as a one because of the noise I heard all night. That was brutal and I got about 2 hours of sleep BUT I have to commend the caring and responsive staff who helped us find our little one who wandered off and went missing for a few minutes during breakfast. While I was looking,... More

My ability to sleep in any situation is legendary yet it's 1:38 am and while half of my family is asleep in the suite's other rooms, I am wide awake. I am in room 202 (avoid this room if you get it). The room sounds and feels like an 18 wheeler truck is idling on the balcony. Too late to... More

Great location and very good staff. Just had a bad room. The room had a portable air conditioning unit that turned out to be very noisy and a bathroom sink that wouldn't drain. Tolerated for one night and decided to move on rather than go through the hassle of trying to change rooms.

I stayed here on June 3-6, 2016 for the Rock and Roll San Diego Marathon weekend. The hotel was right across from the finish line for this year's race. Stayed with 4 other runner friends in a 2 bedroom/bath suite which was comfortable for the 5 of us. There was free shuttle to/from the airport and to locations within 3... More

Terrific stay for our family in a 2 bedroom 2 bath suite. We were very pleased with the breakfast choices, especially because it included lowfat and heart healthy choices. The fitness center is nice. The pool is fun and well located on the site to provide sun on the pool and some shady areas. There are bbqs around the pool,... More
