Just finished a six night stay at this property; the photos don't reflect how great this property is. Located a heartbeat from the I-805, and an easy hop to I-5, my wife and I chose this location as an economic alternative to an expensive downtown San Diego hotel during a conference.
Brenda and Miriam were gems - we didn't have many requests, but we were greeted as family every day. The housekeeping staff kept our room looking brand new every evening, and the free breakfast was more than adequate.
Yes, National City isn't the Gaslamp Quarter, but the neighborhood is far from questionable. Any review that mentions safety concerns was likely written by someone who has never left a gated community. There are several small restaurants and fast food options within 2 stoplights and a Wal-Mart 3/4 stoplights away. We drove from the hotel to the San Diego Convention Center almost daily - 10 to 15 minutes with no traffic, never longer than 20 minutes with heavy traffic.
Three washers and three dryers are located on the ground floor, the two elevators move swift enough, and there was always adequate off-street parking.
I'm a commercial photographer in the Caribbean, and I only wish the photographs showed just how good this property is. Even if I had a budget for $500 downtown rooms, I'll be booking this hotel on our return to San Diego.
