Stayed here for spring break with the kids. We all loved it!! I did my research (read a LOT of reviews here) before we booked this hotel and to be honest, there is some truth to a lot of the comments made by previous reviewers, but.... It is far from San Diego - all attractions and you need a car,. ..Yes it is and you do! If you want to be in town, close to all the major attractions, then this is not the hotel for you. We love peace and quiet after a day sightseeing so it was perfect for us. The commute and we did it: just before, during and after rush hour, was not bad at all - for California. We drove into town every day except one (the day we went to Legoland. It is close to Legoland (not walking distance though). The staff that we encountered were attentive and always went out of their way to help . The room was spacious, there were five of us and with a double queen and a sofa sleeper it was more than adequate. It is true that you have to place the keycard in a pocket on the wall for electricity, but once this was explained to us, it was no big deal. The bathroom light is tricky but my kids figured it out very quickly and that turned out not to be a big deal either. Breakfast was to die for!!! The egg muffin/croissant combo was a hit with my kids, my husband loved the bagels and coffee and the fruits were my favorite. It was quite a spread. Yes, it could get very busy and crowded in the breakfast area, but we were down before eight every morning and had no problems. It is a very family friendly hotel but we had no problem with the noise level. If you have a car, there are shops, restaurants and take out places within a five mile radius. There is an outlet mall also!! The only reason that I am not giving this hotel five stars is because the hot tub heater broke down while we were there and it was not repaired before we left. But, I would still recommend this hotel and would stay here again.
