We just stayed for only night due to our tight schedule but we love this place because it is very clean and tidy like a well managed condo. Things, bed and sheet and toilet in the room are absolutely clean. The room was big with proper furnitures. Things are new and of high standard. Parking is outdoor but very close... More

We spent about 2 weeks here and it is a great place. Friendly staff ! The rooms have a nice 'home' like appearance - we loved the 'sloping roof' look. It has a cozy fire-place outside the pool area - which felt warm and welcome in the Dec. cold. The complimentary breakfast is good - but the menu is virtually... More

We have stayed at this hotel before, when visiting family, and the location is great. It is centrally located, close to a lot of attractions. We were there over Christmas, and I know at that time, often hotels are short of staff and I understand that, but housekeeping did not miss a beat. Great service every day. Wish I could... More

Front desk personnel, Michelle and Candice, attentive, professional and problem solvers. Finally, the manager Ivan. Always smiling and taking care of business. That crew made sure that my stay...

I prepaid for 3 nights at this property. There was a shooter near the SD airport & my flight was cancelled. I called the hotel to let them know I would not be checking in that night as all flights were grounded. I could not get a flight out until the next morning and hopefully the airport would be opened... More

Your reservation was booked as an advance purchase rate which is a discounted rate and is non-changeable and non-cancellable once booked. There are advantages and disadvantages to booking this rate.... More

Easy on/off to the freeway. Freeway entrance is within a city block. Facility is fresh and clean. Exterior paint and landscaping, interior, hotel room and public area are well kept up. Staffs are friendly. Front counter and breakfast helpers are customer oriented. In summary, we thoroughly enjoy our entire stay.
