“MCRD Graduation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

Great service, location, courtesy transportation and clean rooms at a very competitive price. The featured Mexican food at the attached restaurant is excellent and reasonably priiced. Other food venues are with-in easy walking distance. Transportation to and from the airport and MCRD events was on time and the front desk assistance was top notch.

The HoJo is centrally located to most of San Diego's main attractions, despite the fact that it is in a more seedy part of town. It is only about a 10 minute drive to SeaWorld. But if you are looking for a clean place to sleep with inexpensive rates, this is a great choice. What we liked about the property was the lower rate; free parking; free continental breakfast served daily from 6:00-9:00am, however it was always difficult to make a waffle due to the popularity and limited waffle irons, so we ended up never making any; the room was always clean and was equipped with a refrigerator, microwave, free in-room WiFi. There is an ice machine and vending machine with water bottles and pop. The only things we disliked, which were very minor, was that the remote control for the TV was missing and the manager didn't have a replacement; and the pop machines were out of order and the too-laid-back front desk guy had no clue it was broken, nor when it would be fixed.
