“Nice stay, good value!”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

My daughter and I stayed for 1 night. I booked this hotel because of the value of the breakfast special, which was $107. The room was big, had high ceilings, it was clean, the bed had nice white linens, there was a large flat screen TV, a microwave and a mini-fridge. The bathroom was clean, had nice toiletries, and there was plenty of hot water for my shower. There was no cutlery nor any plates, however we got whatever we needed at the front desk, as we brought leftovers from a restaurant meal. A major plus was that there was real cream (half & half) for the coffee. A lot of hotels only provide Coffee Mate - yuck!! My only negative comments were that I found a black hair in the bathtub (yuck), and at breakfast the waiter did not come around to refresh my coffee. Again, not a major complaint, but since he was not busy (there were only 2 other tables with people at them), I would have expected better service. Aside from these 2 minor comments, it was a nice place to stay.

. The San Diego airport got fogged in and our plane was diverted to Ontario, CA.on New Year's Eve. But this was not enough to ruin our week vacation with our son Romulus. Our son and his girl friend, Marianne picked us up @ the airport and had a Big New Year's Eve dinner with her family. It was getting close to the New Year 2014 so our son drove us to the Hilton Garden Inn where the receptionist greeted us with a happy smile. The lobby was richly decorated and was beautiful to look at. When we got to our room it was very clean and ready for us to be comfortable and joyful to ring in the New Year. Although there's only the three of us it did not stop us from celebrating and counting down while watching the New Year celebration in New York and Los Angeles. That was just the beginning, the hotel was close to the San Raphael Church and Soup Plantation and other places we went to. What a way to spend the New Year with our son, friends and relatives cause the hotel was really close to everything! This hotel will definitely be our home away from home whenever we go see our son in San Diego.

Room Tip: Get a hotel room close to the elevator and underground parking.

I've stayed in this hotel twice and have enjoyed it both times. The staff was pleasant, efficient, and helpful. The second time I came I didn't even have a reservation, but I was checked in in less than 5 minutes. I also received a great rate since it was a Sunday evening! The rooms are clean, everything worked right, and none of the furniture or bathroom fixtures was beat up or damaged. There are many places nearby to eat and a supermarket is right up the street. The nearby neighborhood is very nice.

Stopped here last min. with the family. They were very helpful looking up my HHonors number for me and having a roll away for us as well. We had visited the San Diego Zoo that day and planned to visit the Animal Park the next day so we wanted somewhere in between both places. This was a perfect location and very nice rooms and staff.

I enjoy the Rancho Bernardo area when visiting my daughter in San Diego. This hotel is updated and clean. The area is much less hectic then the San Diego area hotels. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. The bed was also very comfortable

Great location for family. Good number and variety of restaurants nearby (w/in 3mile radius). Located a few exits off 15 south of Safari Park. Building feels a bit dated, but room and furniture were excellent quality. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay here again.
