If you are traveling to the Escondido area, this is one of the nicer hotels there. It is on the north side of town, just off I-15 El Norte exit.
I have stayed here about 15 times in the last 10 years, primarily because most of the other hotels in Escondido are quite dismal, and dirty.
This one has a nice, quiet location next to an RV park, some doctors offices, and a Shell station. There is a small pool for the kids.
The breakfast is spartan. The coffee....well just make some in your room.
One of the annoying things is that they nickel & dime you on the bill. I raised my eyebrows for the 'Energy Surcharge' on the bill.....back in 1999. They STILL have an energy surcharge. Why do they need to be deceptive, simly add $5 to their rates and be honest like most other hotels?
In the winter or around holidays this place can be expensive. You can be in an equal hotel in San Diego for $70, while this one is charging $169. So don't stay in Escondido thinking you will save money,, at least not at this hotel. You can get discounts if you are an AARP member or AAA member, but be sure to specify that in advance on the reservation.
For the basics... decent room, enough TV channels, quiet location, clean, it is fine. Overpriced but fine.
