I recently had a nice five day stay here. Even though I picked this location due to its proximity to the Admiral Kidd where I was going for a wedding, it is pretty easy to get anywhere in San Diego from here.
It is a nice, clean hotel that seems safe and has lots of free parking...all important things! The room was more than enough for me as I was traveling alone. Even though the room was close to the airport I rarely heard traffic, the main noise was from military type activity but that was during the day and not a problem. Early one morning I did hear a dog whining and howling which was a surprise as the hotel does not allow dogs so it was either snuck in or a poorly behaved service dog.
I loved that the hotel was super close to a variety of eateries and grocery stores...really comes in handy when you are traveling.
I work from home and appreciated the free wi-fi that worked well throughout my stay.
I never took advantage of dinner as it did not work with my schedule but I did have breakfast one morning. The hotel must have been near capacity as the place was nuts and they were out of quite a few things but they were working to get them refilled. I went down on Saturday and Sunday and immediately went elsewhere...the place was like an elementary school cafeteria. I do not have kids so the ruckus was a bit much for me but if you are traveling with family you will fit right in. There are tables outside that are much quieter but honestly I did not have the effort to maneuver through the chaos to try and get food. This was not the fault of the hotel, but if you want breakfast on the weekend you might want to go early ahead of the crowd :)
It is unfortunate to ding a hotel for not delivering on something that is an added service but it definitely bummed me out. Prior to my stay I had contacted the hotel about getting champagne or something like that delivered to the room of the bride and groom whose wedding I was attending. I was happily informed that the hotel would gladly provide complimentary champagne, nuts and fruit for the happy couple but I could add some chocolate covered strawberries, etc. if I wanted. This was perfect, if this had not been an option I would have gotten them a gift basket with goodies as they probably would not actually get to each much on their wedding day. I provided my credit card info to have strawberries included along with the other items. After the wedding the bride mentioned she was starving and debated a pizza delivery and I smiled knowing how excited they would be for their snacks!The bride is a good friend so I was a little surprised she did not mention anything that night or the next morning but figured they were celebrating and getting ready to head out their honeymoon. The next morning after they left for their honeymoon, I went to their room to collect her wedding dress and his tux...there were no signs of champagne or any of the goodies. After following up with staff I got an apology that the ball had been dropped at some point and the items were never delivered. They did ask how they could make it up and my account was not charged for the strawberries, but the moment is gone and I would have preferred this had not been an option so I could have planned something different and made my own arrangements.
Overall, it was a nice stay and I would recommend this hotel for someone who is going to be in town for a few days.
