Our wedding party and guests stayed here for the weekend when our daughter and son-in-law got married at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. The service we received was amazing. Everything was easy. The reservations, that kept changing, were handled with grace. None of our guests had to wait to check into their rooms. The staff graciously handled our guest gifts. And the bus that came to pick up our guests had easy access to the front of the hotel.
As for the basics, the rooms and common areas were clean. The suites are a nice size for after wedding gatherings. Everyone was pleased with the breakfast that the hotel provided and the hours that the breakfast was provided.
We have another daughter and should she choose to get married in this area, we would definitely use this hotel again..

Save yourself stay in San Diego or Carlsbad.
This was the worst hotel I have stayed in my recent memory.
We travel a great deal and stay in hotels at least six times a year.
This one is in a poor state of repair, smells, dirty and uncomfortable.
The only thing going for it is location.
If you read this and still stay, you won't be able to say you weren't warned.

Good location for Wild Animal park and San Diego Zoo and we went to both that week end. Family suites were great, nice large rooms and quiet. Check-in and out was very efficient and everything was in good working order. OK continental breakfast.

Room Tip: Request rooms in the back facing the RV park

get the oversized room with king bed; nice to have the space for refrigerator and in room coffee maker and microwave. Too bad there isn't a wet bar.

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.

We stayed in this hotel to visit a friend who was getting married. Because we have toddler twins, I wanted to sit in the lobby and use my computer until my wife could get them to sleep, however, the management closes the hotel lobby seating area after breakfast, nearly the whole day! I've never been to nor heard of a hotel closing the lobby seating area!

The excuse was, transients wander in and stay - this is ridiculous, as the front door is monitored by the lobby clerk. The chain, Best Western, is large enough to offer a lobby area for visiting with guests and to study and read in.

My advice - don't go here, unless you just stay in your room. Also, they don't heat their pool, another false claim of theirs!
