I chose this hotel based on reviews and location to Camp Pendleton. I admit that I did have a bit of trouble finding the hotel in the dark, and not paying enough attention to the exit signs - I ended up in one of 4 lanes into Camp Pendleton. But after a slight detour I located the hotel with help from a very kind marine. The hotel is in a funny middle of the block location without any over the building signage, plus you enter the hotel from what first appears to be a parking garage. After all that, I was pleasently surprised with the rest of my experience at the hotel. My room was very, very large, with nice furniture and great beds. I would have loved a room this size when I traveled with my children. The exercise room met my needs, and the pool area looked fine too. I was surprised that breakfast wasn't encluded, but they do have a small resturant and bar. Also, there is a Denny's about a half block away. The hotel is located very close to the marina and not very far from the beach. All within walking distance or a short drive away. The main gate to Camp Pendleton is about a block away and the freeway entrance is across the street. I think that this hotel is a little gem. I enjoyed my stay so much, that I ended up staying another night four days later and I was just as impressed as during my first night there. On both my stays, the front desk person was so helpful and friendly. I will definelty stay here again when I return in a few months, and I wouldn't have any reservations about recommending this hotel to anyone.
