We recently stayed here for a friends wedding. Upon arrival check in was fast and easy. The hotel lobby was very nice 1st day there was watermelon water, that evening there were coffee and granola bars out. Staff was very nice, our package included breakfast. Breakfast was very good. The rooms were spacious , fridge, microwave and a keurig included. Bathroom door slams closed doesnt stay open because of some fire safety issue, it was very annoying. View of pool and mountains was great. 30min from airport & downtown. 40min from la jolla beach and a 5min ride to winery. Nearby restaurants and 24hr gas station marts. Free parking is a plus. Overall good experience!!

Breakfast and restaurant staff are really stand-out! Worth the stay. Lobby is nice with snacks and chilled lemon water available all day and night. Close to our home office. Lots of great restaurants within a mile r two. Somewhat secluded off the main drag so there really isn't any street noise in the rooms. Minimum of 200 characters, huh? Yada yada yada yada yada yada yada yada yada yada.

The hotel staff are very friendly. The room (King bed) was spacious and the tv had a TON of good cable channels (eg HGTV, HBO, etc) which is rare these days. I have to say - and this may just be me- but the bed was like lying on concrete pavement. A hard bed with terrible feather pillow that can never really be fluffed or rolled to support your head. I had the worst time trying to fall/stay asleep the two nites I stayed there. Makes me think I need to bring my own pillow. Plus, there is something equivalent to a blanket on the bed but not a duvet of any real substance or weight. So the bedding left a good deal to be desired for me personally. The breakfast was GREAT. You order eggs, french toast, pancakes - made to order. Juice and bread and danish. Comfortable eating area. The wait staff are very attentive. The pool is very small but there is a really nice work out room and self-serve laundry facility. I am very picky about beds and I may not stay here again but I have to say it's a very pleasant hotel overall.

Room Tip: I was put in room 101 - closest to the freeway. I had to run the a/c all nite to block the noise of...

My husband and I throughly enjoyed our stay here. Front Desk staff, especially Sabina and Ashleigh were wonderful and helped make our stay so nice. Great suggestions for restaurants and places to see nearby. Pool, hot tub and exercise room in great shape. Complimentary coffee and fresh cookies in the evening also a nice touch. Would definitely stay here again!!

I have stayed at this hotel several times and have never had any problems. The staff here have always been very warm and welcoming. The price is very reasonable for a nice, modern, clean, quiet and comfortable hotel. I really like the decor in the rooms. I also like the garaged parking that is only accessible for guests. I would definitely recommend and definitely visit again in the future.

Great beds, super clean, plenty of towels and nice bathroom. Location is also excellent. You can actually walk to two restaurants if you don't want to eat in the hotel. Breakfast buffet isn't free but still well worth it--eggs to order, fresh fruit and a everything else you can possibly want. Good service too. This is our go-to hotel whenever we're in the Rancho Bernardo area.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms in the back because they overlook the interstate. Quietest rooms are on either side...
